Looking forward to watching that. Suwama is by far my favourite guy in All Japan and I've not seen a lot of Funaki besides his Nagata feud last year (which didn't really play out that well iirc), and his TC win against Akiyama.

Mat work and build can be tedious, but its really fun when done right, and it was done right for Suwama/Funaki. Part of what made it work is the legit feeling that any moment could end the match because of Funaki's strikes and armbars. I can see why some wouldn't like it, and the match does have a lot of flaws, but its also really fun if you like that kind of thing.

Did you like their first match? Is it along the same lines? I'm not sure I can watch a Funaki match that long. I'll give it a go at some point though probably along with the Burning/Get Wild tag. I'm not really going into either with any hopes though.

Same. Funaki's championship reign has done nothing to garner a single bit of interest from me. Good to know he's not working vs the like of Akebono or Joe Doering in a lengthy environment.

ah screw it. Watching it now. If this rules, well that'll be swell.

Watched Suwama/Funaki. It was good and everything, but I don't think I cared enough to get properly invested in anything they were doing, until they started beating the piss out of each other in the finishing stretch. The final 5 minutes or whatever I really, really liked. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood for the first 20 minutes or however long it was, think I'll re-watch it at some point.

Have to say I damn near echo the thoughts of Bubz. Unsure if a second watch would contain my interest though. Mat work & picking apart the arm of Funaki by Suwama was fine, but nothing popped out. Even the finishing stretch was only "good" at the heart of it for me.

I understand. I think I just miss Bryan Danielson, and this reminded me of him in ROH. Maybe I overranked it as a result. I could see my rating going down on a rewatch. I was still way into the finishing stretch and I think the workover paid off, but I can see why it wouldn't be universally liked.

I hated their first match, but honestly I hate suwama 90% of the time.

I actually like the funaki/Suwama even more then the Get Wild Tag, which will be a bit rare on here, I think. Then again I get the feeling I like funaki more than most.

In all honesty, I could see you hating both, though.

Perhaps. Or it could always hold up for you. The correlation you made with Danielson to the mat work will probably remain whenever you take the time to view it again. It seemed to find an x-factor with you. Which is what it happened to lack for me.

Funaki/Suwama was freakin' amazing, watched it two times, and wasn't bored for a second.

Also, Funaki/Akebono from 1/26 was surprisingly good.

Chikara - Just Shadows in the Fog

Dev Corp vs 3.0 ***1/2 - ***3/4

Not the greatest match, but it was surprisingly good. I wasn't the biggest fan of the match originally but after a second watch I found the heel tactics of the Dev Corp to be especially enjoyable and devious.
