Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Checked out a few more matches tagged as classic+;

Suzuki/Tanahashi KoPW 2012 - ****3/4 This is like a perfect match. But something intangible just stops me from putting it as one. Suzuki's mannerisms were incredible and their figure-four leglock section definitely stands out more than any submission stretch I've seen in quite a while. Fantastic.

Nakamura/Sakuraba WK7 - ****1/2

Okada/Tanahashi WK7 - ****1/4

If anyone recommends a match that they love this period, I'd love to check it out. Looking for any input really as I don't want to go off "just" what the Lariato excel spreadsheet recommends.

Some good wrestling but rookies lack real drive and speed and the gaijin matches are horrible. not good) > Sendai(Meiko herself is rather consistent and one of the most consistent in the circuit but her promotion is the complete opposite. not good)

No WAVE in here because I don't have WAVE Network or WAVE Network rips
Ice Ribbon is my favorite promotion, so I'm happy to see a post like this

SEAdLINNNG doesn't do anything for me since I don't like nanae and her crew, but she has Arisa Nakajima and Sareee, so not everything is lost.

Gatoh Move always gives the impression of being an AU Ice Ribbon: Similliar yet different. Wish I had the will to watch it (and everything else, really)

OZ always made me roll my eyes with Ozaki-gun stuff, but the things I saw without their involvement has been fairly good. It also has my favorite set of Champions today.

Stardom also never did anything to me, so it's kinda annoying (though understandable) that it's the only thing people talk about. What I saw wasn't bad but hardly above and beyond everything else. They also probably have more belts than people on the roster.

Speaking of too many belts, Sendai Girls has 3 belts for 5 home wrestlers - two veterans, two rookies and a super rookie. That's 2 belts more than they need. And having outsiders holding the tag belts only leads to millions and millions of Shida/Syuri vs Chisako+someone else (because they NEED a home talent in a title match).

I can't comment on Tokyo Joshi Pro since all I know about it is how bad Saki Akai was years ago lol

I have to concur. I just got into it after seeing a clip of the Mayu Iwatani vs Io Shirai match and I've absolutely loved it.

I don't know why they have matches with kids though.
