Hmm, no clue what it is. Just tried again last night and they either A) never download or were supremely slow. I'll have to look into it.

I'm sure a tech-savvy man like yourself Rich has an IP Blocker thing. Change to the UK and see if that helps it.

Downloads seem to be working now (guess it was a Google Chrome issue). The binge has begun.

Just finished the matches Alan linked. Brought it up on Twitter when I started these matches, but I absolutely love this company. Love the wackiness, the action, and I'm really impressed by the way a lot of these matches were paced. A few other things to note,

-Loved TAKA so much, especially in multi-man matches. He always seemed to stick out in those 6/8/10 man clusters, which I really value. Going to dive into a lot of his other work soon because I'd like to find a spot for him on my GWE list.

-Dos Caras sucks.

-The 10/10/96 match has aged poorly. Dave gave it 5* and it's certainly not that. I have it right at 4. I'm sure watching this at the time it was out-of-this-world great, but seeing this after spending years watching Dragon Gate do these sorts of matches at an elite level hurt this match in my eyes. I liked what they were going for but I didn't like the sloppiness and I didn't think anything about the match was really that great. I'd love to put blame on Tiger Mask IV because I like picking on him, but I thought he was perfectly acceptable when he showed up on this list.

-How great is Yakushiji? Man, he added such a breath of fresh air into the last portion of this list. He was awesome in the 10/10/96 match, the 12/16/96 match, and his singles match against Togo. Wrestling needs more Yakushiji-like wrestlers. He's small, but that helps him standout. Loved the way he was connecting with the crowd in the 12/16 match and I love his arm drags.

-This was my first time diving into MPro Dick Togo. I've seen his retirement tour stuff and random matches that I've picked off of Ditch's site, but my God, he's so, so great. I've been meaning to dive into Togo some more and this was a nice start. One hell of a talent.

Thanks again for the links, Alan.

Where, and how can I read this?
