Re: VOW Flagship: Wrestle Kingdom 12 Preview, Year in Review & more!

I always enjoy the star rating talk and how amazing 2017 is within historical concepts. I continue to think that 2017 was inferior to 2016 as a worldwide in ring quality year but do think the amount of good matches worldwide are much more plentiful now compared to the past for the combination that w...

Re: VOW Flagship: 205 Live House Shows, Global League, Q&A and more!

Lanza, you need to see Rockers vs Powers of Pain from 1/15/90 MSG Show. Awesome match and I would watch your tag team comp tape on a loop.

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Kenta Kobashi & Takao Omori vs Jun Akiyama & Yoshihiro Takayama (NOAH 10/08/00) Burning and No Fear are all exploding in one match. Akiyama and Kobashi start off and Jun backdrops Kobashi 10 seconds in. The young punk has learned from his mistakes the night before. They stare each other down and get...

Re: Wrestle-1 thread

Pro Wrestling Love in Yokohoma. Their biggest show of the year and a good sampling of what the promotion can offer.

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Mitsuharu Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa vs Akira Taue & Takeshi Morishima 9/25/00 Besides the debut show main event, this was Misawa’s most showcase performance in NOAH so far as he has some nice exchanges with old rival Taue and really mixes it up with Morishima. Morishima for his part does really well ...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Kenta Kobashi, Tsuyoshi Kikuchi & Takeshi Rikio vs Jun Akiyama, Yoshihiro Takayama & Yoshinobu Kanemura (NOAH Exceeding Our Dreams 09/15/00) Kikuchi starts this off cheapshotting everyone and gaining the early advantage with others giving a WTF reaction. That gets the crowd lit and was an awesome mo...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Kenta Kobayashi vs Naomichi Marufuji (NOAH Exceeding Our Dreams 09/16/00) I just wish NJPW had this much faith in their young lions. I can’t think of the last time they let them bust out this much and this successful of a polished match at this young an age. The work early on looked tight and the r...

bad form using the LInda McMahon theme to segue between the two of you instead of the WM2 opening saxophone beat with the guy saying "what the world has come to"

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Yoshihiro Takayama & Takao Omori vs Akira Taue & Jun Izumida (NOAH Departure II 08/06/00) This wasn’t as bad as the tag before it but it also didn’t have a lot of teeth within in. Omori is clearly not a priority in NOAH like he was in later day AJPW and Takayama and Taue had some decent but disappoi...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Naomichi Marufuji & Takeshi Rikio vs Takeshi Morishima & Masao Inoue (NOAH Departure II 08/06/00) Morishima is so skinny here. It is neat to see him and Rikio be developed right out of the gate for NOAH as someone worth following. Otherwise, this was just a match more than anything else form the fir...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Kenta Kobayashi vs Satoru Asako (NOAH Departure II 08/06/00) I have no issue calling this a good match. Asako has traded in his all white gear from the night before for some shiny black motif. Kenta shows a lot of fire but also shows promise in being able to put together a match that progresses from...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Mitsuharu Misawa & Akira Taue vs Burning (Kenta Kobashi & Jun Akiyama) - NOAH Debut Show 8/5/00 2 Out Of 3 Falls I am appreciative of the difference NOAH exemplified right out of the gate. The ramp is there, Akiyama has an all white look, the lasers are out in full force and they even get some pyro...
