I get Rah's defense, but if going to harp on the result portion of the match in a review at least split the difference and cover up that portion. If not stick the entire review in spoiler tags to begin with. It saves a lot of grief from those who stumble upon it without seeing. Viewing the thread is a gamble. We all know this. We like to check it maybe to see what happens to be pimped by some on the hope, or better to say expectation, that the matches wouldn't be spoiled in the process.

Nah I fucked up by putting a picture which spoiled the main event of the Invasion Attack show. Not gonna defend myself, I didn't think and it was stupid of me to do. I take full responsibilities for my actions, it won't happen again.

Anyway, it turns out it's not really possible to 'spoil' Tanahashi vs Okada because it's that damn good.

Excitement proved to be the better part of judgment here.

Luckily the common result so far is the spoiler known hasn't made watching the match any less of a grand experience. Well, that cheers me up. Really, it does. b/c if I had to be spoiled, well while it is DEEPLY frustrating, I'm glad I can keep hope in loving the match despite not being on the edge of my seat when the near falls come flying in. Or maybe I will by proxy of being sucked into the match. It's been getting some praise worthy nods atm. Which is a glorious step up from where their last match match was considered. (which I still thought was great, personally.)

^I wrote all of that in vague fashion due to those who have avoided a spoiler so far.

From Invasion Attack:

Makabe & Honma vs. Takahashi & Tanaka: I'm probably overrating this one, but it caught my low expectations completely off-guard. Really exciting from bell-to-bell with a super-enthusiastic crowd ***3/4

Nakamura vs. Smith Jr: A slow-burner with a very strong finish. Not quite four stars, but as close as it gets. ***3/4

Tanahashi vs. Okada: See previous posts. Easily the best match I've seen this year. ****3/4

Elsewhere, Suzuki vs. Yano was short, wild & thoroughly enjoyable, maybe ***1/2, and Goto & Nagata vs. Laughter 7 was well on its way to being something special when disaster struck (look away if you're squeamish). Overall, another supremely entertaining event from the best promotion in the world.

Here's everything I've rated **** & over this year:

1) Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada (NJPW Invasion Attack) ****3/4
2) Tomohiro Ishii vs. Hirooki Goto NJPW 17/2) ****1/4
3) Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada (NJPW WrestleKingdom 7) ****1/4
4) CM Punk vs. The Undertaker (WWE WrestleMania) ****1/4
5) Jun Akiyama & Go Shiozaki vs. Takao Omori & Manabu Soya (AJPW 17/3) ****1/4
6) Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Karl Anderson (NJPW New Beginning) ****1/4
7) Koji Kanemoto & Minoru Tanaka vs. Shuji Kondo & Kaz Hayashi (AJPW 3/1) ****1/4
8) Kazuchika Okada vs. Hirooki Goto (NJPW 23/3) ****
9) Killer Elite Squad vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW 5/4) ****
10) Minoru Suzuki vs. Yuji Nagata (NJPW WrestleKingdom 7) ****
11) Masato Tanaka vs. Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW 2/2) ****
12) Masakatsu Funaki vs. Suwama (AJPW 17/3) ****
13) John Cena vs. CM Punk (WWE Raw 25/2) ****
14) Chaos vs. Suzuki Gun (Elimination, NJPW 41st Anniversary) ****
15) Suwama vs. Go Shiozaki (AJPW, 18/4) ****

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada - NJPW Invasion Attack - ****1/2

Oh wow. The result was spoiled for me but honestly it didn't detract from the contest; this was superb from the get go. Tanahashi's arm work is SO good, and Okada sold it like a champ, best example being him going for his trademark pose and only being able to lift one arm up. Speaking of Okada, he was on absolute top form here, acting a wee bit cocky in the early going, and he kept the mannerisms up right the way through.

It's just a joy to watch, I don't really want to say too much more at this time as I don't want to ruin anything for those who haven't seen it yet. I think I still have Cena/Punk as my MOTY, also at ****1/2, but this is a very close second. Certainly the best Okada/Tanahashi match I've seen and miles better than the admittedly pretty great Wrestle Kingdom encounter.

I'm used to the lot of us writing decent-length reviews for great matches. If the review is centred, the title is bolded and it isn't a single line of text I, honestly, have no issue with someone typing "RAAINNNAMAAKKAAAAA~!" as their final sentence. Your eyes can discern the difference between the star rating and the entire body of text as well as your ability to realise the review is about a specific match you haven't seen. However if all it is is "Okada VS Tanahashi - great, great match, fixed the WK7 booking fuck-up" then I can get your point in that you might haphazardly read the spoiler as opposed to the match title. It's easier to do so as opposed to a lengthier post that you should be reading from the top to get its gist. You don't see a book on the library shelf and open it to its centre in the hopes of getting an idea the story.

I'm talking in general, of course, and not in relation to what has happened recently. I just find spoiler-tagging our reviews is clunky and off-point if the review is adequately written. I am against minimally written reviews making use of the outcome, as I've outlined, though I'm against minimally written reviews in general. That said, I do not mind following what the majority wishes. If we're to use spoiler-tags I shall do so happily. Though, maybe, a better compromise is to make use of the puroresu review thread for our star ratings and smaller, more mark-out comments such as "good stuff, must watch". Of course spoilers are to completely avoided, but, at least, it offers a summative blurb to the book.

S'all about the content really. You can be descriptive in a review while avoiding on treading the waters of giving away the result. That's that I'll say in defense of one not wanting to use spoiler tags while reviewing.

Got no gripes against spoiler tags myself. Even for a review. It's a simple click if you wished to view one's thoughts and knowing it holds potential results inside.
