Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

...What the hell, Shiraishi?

No, not the KENSO thing, that's fine. KENSO just proved him right.

I mean the rest of that stuff. What in the blue hell is going on over there?

I don't know much about AJPW but the owner acting like a complete dick sounds interesting. Now only if they had interesting characters like NJPW.....

He challenged Kidani to a shoot fight. Awesome.

Rob Conway is the NWA World champion? Rob Job Conway? What the hell? Who approved that decision? At least Kahagas was good.

So Koijima is calling out the Invader. Here's hoping it's Damien Wayne instead. There was a rumour going around that they would bring down the NWA tag champions, Scott Summers and Genesis.

(4) Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Satoshi Kojima & Captain New Japan vs. Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi & Takaaki Watanabe
◆Winner: Kojima (11:50) following a Lariat to Watanabe.
~ Kojima once again made a bid against the incoming NWA invader.

(5) Shinsuke Nakamura, Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii & Gedo vs. Minoru Suzuki, Lance Archer, Davey Boy Smith Jr. & TAKA Michinoku
◆Winner: Smith (14:43) with a Jumping Powerbomb to Gedo.
~ Smith stated that he will win the NJC.

(6) Hiroshi Tanahashi, Togi Makabe & Hirooki Goto vs. Toru Yano, Takashi Iizuka & Yujiro Takahashi
◆Winner: Goto (13:50) following the Shouten Kai on Iizuka.
~ Goto is dead-set on claiming his 4th NJC victory.

Everyone looks fired up. I really do think Goto has this now, but I've been wrong twice with Nakamura and Suzuki. Also, the New Japan Cup finals are apparently going to be iPPV.

Fuchi beats them all. Jonetsu Hentai Baka rocks. Junior Stars are the best tag team in 2013 thus far. Suwama is Suwama. And, of course, there's BAERNIING now.

Really? Interesting....that's another thing to look forward to then. I hope its Okada/Goto in the final. If Yano makes the final I will rage.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

The New Japan Cup Finals were always on iPPV.

Reading back over the comments and the Yano hate is sad. Maybe you're all just expecting the wrong thing from him. Embrace the character for what it is. Not every wrestler has to be a workaholic. That said him beating Suzuki was odd. Don't get why Okada faces Yano and not DBS either. Finals don't really interest me. I'm guessing we get a Goto/Okada Final with Goto winning and I just don't care for Goto at this point chasing the title. Don't care for a Goto/Okada Final either. Regardless of it being their 4th singles match in 10 months I haven't overly cared for any of the other 3.

Wasn't feeling the 2nd round show. Wasn't in love with Goto/Ishii. Ishii's selling was terrific as per but I struggled to get invested in the match. Part of Ishii's charm is the hierachial angle his matches have with him being so low on the hierarchy and working like a dude at the bottom of the card that's fighting his way up and the other guy works like a guy at the top of the card. Goto didn't wrestle like the superior and never established any sort of hierachy dominance. This sort of pairing rules when you get the hierachy story done right but they went way too your turn my turn with it. Watch some old Rick Rude matches and see how great he was at working the hierachy angle in matches. Thought they went kinda overboard with the style and I'm hoping Ishii's push doesn't just consist of matches like the Tanaka one where him and his opponent hit each other as hard as they can in turns for >15 minutes.

I hated the Laughter7 tag. Absolutely hated it. They did it with the Goto/Inoue match and they did it again here. Totally taken away their aura of dominance and now they're working >10 minute tags with guys like those 4 and working competitive. This one wasn't even really competitive because Sakuraba got fucking mauled in this. Once you take away that aura of dominance and legitimacy from them 2 you don't really have much left. The Makabe/Shibata match worked with Makabe kicking Shibata's ass because they built to it and it was Makabe doing the ass kicking. Now Shibata who before was doing the sell nothing expect the odd move to make that move look huge is selling for Nakanishi's shitty chops? It just doesn't work. I guess this is the trade off for Jado and Gedo continuing to book them. I'd rather none of them than booking them like they have post WK. It just doesn't work. Do you think Lesnar would be the draw he is in WWE if they had him take so much offence to a guy like Nakanishi. Just no good at all.

Yano/Suzuki was odd. I'm assuming they clipped out ALL of Yano's offence because he literally got nothing in bar the finish and it looked awful. This show really wasn't designed to be fit in 2 hours with every match being shown. Even Okada/Anderson got around 5 minutes clipped out. Their match was too reliant on the hot finish and consisted of very little in the middle. I told everyone the Rainmaker wasn't gone and I don't know a single person in Japan, let alone the wrestling industry. Common sense and watching his matches told me that.

The All Japan stuff. I don't care. At all. If the owner wants to knuckle sandwich KENSO then fine. They sound like a massive joke right now and I don't really care for the product. At least Suwama has the belt again and they can go somewhere with that. I'm guessing matches with Akiyama and Shiozaki will have to wait though if they have the tag belts now. Meh defenses against guys like Doering ahead first then. Joy. Baffled at Mutoh pinning Kono in a tag match.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

Jonetsu Hentai Baka vs. SUSHI & Andy Wu
Match was too edited to really get an idea on it, but Sato and Yamato's interactions were fun and Wu is an extremely clean wrestler. SUSHI finished it with a Fisherman Buster Pin.

Fuchi & Nishimura vs. Reid & KENSO
Reid looks like he tries really hard, but they're not giving him much to work with (to improve.) Same as above, too edited to really tell.

Junior Stars vs. Burning
** 3/4. The last five minutes or so were nice. Check this out for a good match.

Kanemaru vs. Hayashi
* 3/4. Felt like a house show match. I hope I never have to see "Deep Impact" again from anyone. These guys don't work well together.

SMOP + Nakanoue vs. Last Revolution
Fun, but not good. Chono did more than I thought he would. As Akebono gets better, Hama gets worse. Nakanoue, like always, is promising.

Muto & Frye vs. Takayama & Kono
Ehhhhh, I don't know...

Sanada vs. KAI
* 1/2. Not as awful as I thought it would be. The first few minutes were pretty good, but then the match fell apart after KAI's Tope. Match was bad enough to get KAI booed when he challenged Suwama.

Get Wild vs Burning
**** 1/2. The last 10 minutes were absolutely GREAT. Download this and watch this. This was the best that Shiozaki has looked in years, but this match was all about Manabu Soya. Great, great tag stuff. One of the best matches of the year so far.

LOVED Shiozaki's smirk to Soya after he pinned him

Funaki vs. Suwama
****+. Funaki and Suwama's strikes and attacks were both on point and they wrestled a really smart, technical match. I loved how Funaki kept going back to the Triangle and working on Suwama's neck. The mat work lasted 15 minutes, so some of you guys may dislike that. Some really cool spots here. I enjoyed it more than I did Tanahashi vs Okada from the Dome.

They cut out the Shiraishi stuff from the end of the show, for whatever it's worth.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

I wouldn't say it was the best Shiozaki seemed in years but it was like seeing a new and refreshed Go. I tjink both his outings with Morishima were underrated but the way he carried himself he wanted to be there. I definitely say Go is one of the guys who gives a 100% into what he is doing whether he likes it or not and he seemed highly motivated unlike the previous times I've seen him in NOAH. The stretch was amaxing btw. Though I will say I did not give a flying fuck about Soya's partner.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

For me, the Laughter7 match rocked. Maybe b/c I was surprised at how much Nagata & Nakanishi demolished Sakuraba during it, but I bought. Gave it a believable sense that this team can take down the ever dominate Laughter7, only for one of them to find the slightest opening only Nakanishi and take it for the W.

So people hate Yano? Shame. I have fun with him. Moment Suzuki got knocked into Taichi I was jolted with excitement knowing Yano could possibly snag the upset. He did. Was pretty fun to see.

Finals seems blah considering Goto will no doubt win. While I like him, honestly don't have any negative light towards him, I just can't say I care about him winning this whole tournament and getting a championship shot. Bad enough Okada will be his opponent. Not on terms of a match quality scale. Only terms of a "fresh" booking scale. If the finals end up being Smith vs Yano, well I own New Japan an apology.

Championship change in All Japan? Oh. That's nice. I'll never watch so meh. Haven't had an interest in that company for YEARS now.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.
