New Japan Noob here. Gonna try keep up as much in 2013, just barely kept up with the pimped matches from 2013.

Just watched Nakamura/Sakuraba and the Ki/Devitt/Ibushi match so far and was very impressed.

Low Ki vs Prince Devitt (c)vs Kota Ibushi - NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 7: Evolution

You know exactly what to expect from this. Jaw dropping, fast paced action from three great wrestlers. Ki looked like a boss , don't care what anyone says. Ibushi is amazing to watch as always and never disappoints and Devitt is Devitt. Just an awesome wrestler who is insanely over. Great little match , lots of fun with some breathtaking sequences. The right person went over the right wrestler.

***3/4-****


Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Kazushi Sakuraba- NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 7: Evolution


So here's where it gets interesting for a New Japan Noob. I'm relatively familiar with Nakamura but sadly think this is one of ,if not the first Sakuraba match I've seen. For every wrestler trying to work a good shoot style and authentic pseudo-MMA match look no further.

Gripping mat work at the start that didn't drag and kept my interest throughout. Starting dropping bombs and strikes at the right time and some of the strikes were just gruesome. Them kneesFinishing stretch was really good back and forward action and Nakamura's comeback was good( could of been delayed longer IMO,not a major complaint. Sakuraba is a ruthless S.O.B. I can see how people relate it to Brock/Cena. Its hard to believe how much went down in just ELEVEN MINUTES. Really good match.

****1/4+. Maybe ****1/2 I'll re-watch soon I'd say.

Next up Nagata/Suzuki and Tanahashi/Okada.

Yep... I think you can't tell the "we're equals" story better than that. It was a fantastic strategic war.

I just finished watching Nakamura/Sakuraba. I haven't seen the whole show yet (plan to sometime this week, hopefully sooner rather than later), but hunted that one match down right away just because of this thread. Glad I did. Really looking forward to watching the rest now.

NJPW Wrestlekingdom 7 in the Tokyo Dome

Yuji Nagata vs Minoru Suzuki
I don't care how many times these two have faced each other; it'll never get old. This match was mostly about one-manship and features many back-and-forth strike exchanges but these two know how to do them right and they do new stuff to make them not feel too similar to their other encounters. Nagata's comeback during the sleeper was awesome and highly-charismatic. His selling gets a tad selective in the final minutes, but it didn't hurt the match too much.
★★★★

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Kazushi Sakuraba
We are only 6 days into the year and I can comfortably say that this is definitely going to be a top 5 match of the year. Saku dominates Nakamura for most of the match and Nakamura is just awesome at busting out the desperation moves. I also marked big for the Landslide and Nakamura eating a knee in the same way he did from Takayama from years before. All-in-all, this was a great match that made Nakamura look like a true champion, made the title look very important and also kept Saku looking pretty dangerous himself, despite his loss. I hope both Sakuraba and Shibata stick around as they could really freshen up the main event scene.
★★★★½

Well
1. It didn't work because it wasn't dramatic to me
2. IMO it was too many reversals and kick-outs. Is there any point in your opinion when there is too many reversals after finishing moves? It just goes back and forth?`

The first 20 minutes were perfect but they were trying to do too much at the end of the match.

Well, that's too bad. I know I was completely losing my shit in the last few minutes. But, you said they 'ruined the psychology' because they went into second gear? By far the dumbest thing I've ever read on any pro wrestling forum (oh, and trust me, I've read MANY, MANY, MAAANY dumb things). How the hell do you want them to end the match? With a rest hold? The stupidity has reached a peak when one frowns upon dramatic, heart racing finishes. I quite frankly don't care how you reacted towards it, because I know I bought into everything they did. Woah, sorry for the long rant. But... yeeaah.

There wasn't tons of kick-outs at all in that match. the major kick out came from the HFF which was a great near fall, and apart from that is was a struggle for them to hit their finishers. I agree with Cactus that the first quarter of the match almost completely lost me, but once Okada started his control segment I was in to it right until the finish. It definitely felt like they were going for EPIC, and they almost achieved it (and without tons of kick-outs or overkill either) imo.

Why I NO voted the main on puroresu.tv...

Quote:
Unlike the first and my favourite of their matches (my second favourite IWGP match last year under vs. MiSu II), which was laid out brilliantly to build and put over Okada like the superstar he would become, all while protecting his weaknesses and shocking the world in the finest of ways, this was about as far from original as it comes. They forced "epic" and spent way too much time taking things slow when the match didn't call for it. They went through their spots so predictably and in lesser ways than their other matches. At least the Dominion match was paced well, and this match seemed to be a slowed down, poorly mutated replica of it. They gave me no reason beyond the hype to care, and the KUSHIDA led seconds had to rile the crowd up because they didn't care either. Okada's worst performance in a big match but Tanahashi actually looked great to me, and for the first time I really got the vibe of "older, wise veteran" from him.
Spoiler for spoiler:

I don't dismiss matches on booking either, so I don't care that Okada lost in the case of calling this a MOTYC.

In short, it was a lesser version of their second match, slowed down and with minimal originality to qualify it as great, and without an even "pretty good" Okada performance.

Why the fuck are there people that are complaining about a chain wrestling portion in a beginning of a pro wrestling match? Even if the said chain wrestling isn't the greatest thing ever it's crucial for match layout of 99% "epic" pro wrestling matches AND for workers planing what they'll do later on in the match. It gives the live crowd a little rest without boring them to death and allows the high end stuff in the match to stand out. Maybe you'd have liked it if Okada and Tanahashi oversold headlocks in a Shawn Michaels-esque way with horrible acting.

I really don't understand what some people want a pro wrestling match to be these days.
