Hirooki Goto vs. Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW 17/3): **** 1/2

Holy mother of god was this amazing. I loved loved loved this match so much. Easily the best match of the NJPW cup and I doubt anything else is going to get close. This slots into my top 3 matches of the year.

I'm sorry for the spoilers.....but I was under the impression spoilers were allowed on this thread. I mean, finishes certainly pertain to match analysis.

If someone wants to avoid spoilers, can't they just, I don't know....use the Puro discussion thread with the 'No Spoiler' sign in it?

Default Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

You started talking about Night 1 and then just dropped a Night 2 spoiler out of nowhere that nobody could possibly avoid. People probably saw Night 1, wanted to read your thoughts and found a Night 2 spoiler in the middle of it when it had only just surfaced online. If you're posting a review for a match someone hasn't seen then people should be smart enough not to read the review. At least give some sort of warning you might spoil the result, especially for a show that had only just been uploaded. Just be careful that the show you're spoiling has been available for people to watch for a few days first before posting such a direct spoiler.

Allright, I understand, sorry to everyone. I seriously thought any thread without 'No Spoiler' in the title was fine, and that people avoiding spoilers would just avoid all other threads. Won't happen again.

NJPW New Japan Cup - Day 2

Tomohiro Ishii vs Hirooki Goto
Do you really want a review? It's an Ishii match and it delivers and then some. Go see it now. Goto wastes no time trying to work down Ishii and tries to take him out quickly but Ishii is tougher than Goto thinks. I really loved the mirrored striking sequences and I don't think I've been sucked into the drama of a wrestling match for a long time and this match got me on the end of my set; especially during one of the dueling clothesline sequences. My only complaint here would probably be that I felt that this went on a tad too long and that Goto added in a few near-falls for the hell of it.

Everytime I'm about to post on this thread I just back out for no reason but I'm actually going to dish out some ratings and give like a sentence. Most probably people won't agree with but whatever.

Zack Sabre Jr./Marty Scurll vs. Jonathan Gresham/Mark Haskins:****1/4
Rah mentioned this match in the British Wrestling thread and while he thought it was fun, I thought it was fun and great. This is the best I have ever seen Haskins out of my limited viewing of him. His character work was spot on and he looked the part to boot. Gresham has improved considerably in Europe to me. Why not quite on Haskins level of character in this one I think he did a little bit that added to this match. LDRS are really good. ZSJ is so slick its silly.

Terrible vs. Rush:****
I didn't like this match as much as their hair vs. hair match last year but I seem to be the only one. Thought it was great though. Don't watch enough lucha to know if Rush does that goal kick taunt thing in other matches but it was pretty cool.

Akiyama/Suzuki/Kanemuru vs. Soya/Omori/Kaz Hayashi:****1/4
With JoeRulez on this one. Loved the moment that piledriver was hit on the outside and things became a blur of chaos.

Jun Akiyama/Go Shiozaki vs. Manabu Soya/Takao Omori:****3/4
This match was incredible. From bell to bell its intense. Soya took a beating like a man. Seemed like Akiyama and Shiozaki's goal was to deliver enough blows to the head that Soya would get concussions galore. I don't know why Soya felt the need to drape his head onto the guardrail TWICE but he did. Crazy bastard. Akiyama looked like an unstoppable force. He pretty much forced Soya to hit him and then he murdered him. Akiyama lands the nastiest headbutt sequence I've seen in AWHILE. The finishing stretch may have gone on too long for some but by gosh the crowd was nuclear for it. Dead crowd and it wouldn't have been nearly as impactful. My current MOTY. Didn't see this match being THIS amazing. Some might not be as high on it as I but for it was bliss.

I also have one or two matches I've backed out from writing matches up for, that British match being one. I'm not sure if I'd go as high as yours but I don't see any injustice in throwing that rating at it. It'd definitely fit in my MotY list, at any rate.

As for Rush/Terrible, I cannot remember my rating for their hair match but both were great and heightened by Rush's nuclear hatred from the crowd. Forget TNA's plants, Rush was getting trash thrown at him left, right and centre from angry fans. I know the tecnico status can confuse some but Rush is doing brilliantly well at a situation that Panico forced him in to. Never seen him perform the goal kick, again, but I don't watch his trios matches. Those pairings leave a lot to be desired.

That Akiyama/Go match, is it the 17/03 tag? I managed to get a few minutes in before Dailymotion went down on me. It ended just after I saw Soya get executed with a neckdrop onto that guardrail. So legit even Dailymotion sold the move and died.

I'm adding Angelosetti/Saturyne from While the Dawn is Breaking to my list. A phenomenal match.

I'm downloading NJC D3 currently, gonna watch it, and then up to AJPW Basic & Dynamic from Ryogoku.

Kazuchika Okada vs Toru Yano - NJPW 23.03.2013
Stating the obvious but don't read on if you don't want to know who makes it to the Final. If you're in two minds then watch this one unspoiled and you'll be thankful you did. Pairing was a bit perplexing with Smith in the other Semi but I knew this would be fun. Only hoped it would fun AND great. This was FUN and GREAT. Yano's shtick is fantastic and regardless of the direction of the match makes the pre finish parts to a match interesting which is something a lot of guys struggle with. On top of that he's pretty reliable at delivering really fun finish stretches to with a top opponents. Don't get how someone can watch this and/or the Yano/Tanahashi match from 2011 G1 and say Yano's trash. Unless you want everyone to work like a ROH wrestler I guess. Gedo's face when Yano tries to roll out the ring again to Punk Okada but rolls right into Gedo was the best. Gedo's amazing in this role as Okada's mentor at ringside and the early parts played off the CHAOS vs CHAOS dynamic perfectly. Naturally Okada isn't as cunning as Yano is at bending the rules so the middle sees him fall prey to Yano's cheating shtick. Pays off really nicely with the exposed buckle being the catalyst for Yano losing the momentum at the end. They have a really great finishing run too and there's 3 near falls that actually convinced me Yano might be winning. The powerbomb near fall especially got me and that's a credit to what protecting finishers at any level of the card does. Red Ink finish just isn't as hot for Okada but I dig the thinking behind it. It just needs to be secondary to the lariat in the same way that Tanahashi has the Cloverleaf he pulls out from time to time. Liked how Okada realised Yano had the Rainmaker scouted and covered so resorted to the submission finish instead.

****

Shinsuke Nakamura, Tomohiro Ishii & Jado vs Minoru Suzuki, Lance Archer & TAKA Michinoku - NJPW 23.03.2013
CHAOS vs Suzuki-Gun feud delivers again. Pre heat segment on Jado absolutely rules. Suzuki cheap shotting Nakamura while he's strutting along the ropes was such a great start to set the heat and the tone for the match. Ishii/Archer segment ruled the earth. That's the Ishii that I love when he's working from the bottom up making his task seem impossible for ever more likely. Screw that working as equals trading lariats two minutes into a match bullshit. Archer keeps on getting better and better and he's at the point where he's constantly delivering now and being one of the stand out performers on New Japan cards. Ishii's fight to knock Archer of his feet was wonderful and played perfectly into Archer's size dynamic. Dug how Ishii never got him down but got hi big suplex in later in the match. Wish they'd had another extended battle at the end where Ishii finally took Archer down with his lariat though. I absolutely adore Ishii's shtick of if a guy won't fall of my lariat then I'll brainbuster him. That spot never gets old when he pulls it out on guys like Akebono and Archer. TAKA's on another level to everyone else so naturally he pulls the same trick out on Ishii to the same result of course. God I loved that spot so much. Jado/TAKA portion is naturally tons of fun because it's Jado and TAKA and what else is the end outcome gonna be. Jado fighting the flop for once ruled the earth. There was a lot that ruled the earth at the start of this. Heat segment on Jado was good. Finish went a little long and fell a little flat in parts. For some reason Nakamura/Archer just falls flat and the crowd realise it. Straight into a finish off the hot tag rather than doing another set of individual battles would have made it a serious contender for MOTY with Tanahashi/Anderson for me right now. Finish was still good mind, just up and down. Nakamura/Ishii vs Archer/Smith in Korakuen should rule the earth too. I might need a new term if Ishii and Archer have a singles match in front of a hot Korakuen crowd.
