Re: Jay White in 5 years / 10 years

Re: Underrated/Unheralded Matches

cross post from Chad's thread: If I can make a recommendation, I think you'll really enjoy this. Maybe the most un-NOAH match that's a really great match (ok aside from KENTA vs SUWA which I forgot about as I typed). Taue, Mushiking Terry, Ishimori & Aoki vs SUWA, TARU, Kondo & Yasshi, 12/10/06. Dit...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Taue, Mushiking Terry, Ishimori & Aoki vs SUWA, TARU, Kondo & Yasshi, 12/10/06. Taue running down at the entrance was amazing and got a great reaction from Budokan. Yasshi talking shit on the mic and the fight is on. Taue stares down SUWA and gives him the finger for another great reaction. This is...

Re: Chad's Emerald Rewatch

Chad, I watched that Akiyama vs Nakajima match myself the other day and I was a big fan too. Jun was fantastic in it. If I can make a recommendation, I think you'll really enjoy this. Maybe the most un-NOAH match that's a really great match (ok aside from KENTA vs SUWA which I forgot about as I type...

Re: Most Outstanding

Zack may be my pick based on sheer ridiculous volume. His peaks are the Trent match in PWG and the Angelico match in FCP. Had both at ****3/4. So he doesn't have the ***** matches like Okada, Naito and Kenny but he's got way more than them when talking about the next tier of matches. Bate or Dunne c...

Re: 2000 in NOAH

Love this idea man! 2000 and 2001 are probably my biggest blind spot years. Really looking forward to digging in.

Re: Hajime Ohara

Sneaky great wrestler. The type of guy who would have the world at his feet if he was on New Japan, PROGRESS or PWG shows. Everyone would be fawning over the guy.

Re: Yoshihiro Takayama

As I wrote about for this week's F4W when discussing the project, Takayama got me into NOAH with his KENTA and Kobashi singles matches in 2004. His peak stuff was amazing. Not so sure about the No Fear tags yet though.

Anything teaming with Hashi. They had a special dynamic. I'll do a more comprehensive list at some point.

Re: Ricky Marvin

I swear TO GOD I was gonna say something about Ricky Marvin's amazing 2007, but I left it for Alan. I remember talking about that in...2007!...with Alan on the WON board, long before we "knew" each other and have always remembered that damn conversation, with everyone else thinking we were crazy. t...

Re: Yoshinari Ogawa

A rare combination of a wrestler uncommonly respected by his peers for his professionality and someone who connects with fans of fine taste. Managed to create a unique character who used absolutely safe offence in a promotion based on brutal and unsafe offence and be a believable threat to much lar...

Re: Ricky Marvin

Only wrestler to make Misawa break character during a match when he did a huge crazy dive but his opponent was on the other side of the ring. Dove on nobody. Misawa buried his head in his arms in the corner, laughing his ass off.

Also Marvin may have been the best wrestler in the company in 2007.
