Thumbs up Re: ***Official Indy/Puro Thread***

Not sure if anyone here uses XWT but they have a G-1 Climax pack that was uploaded today that is the entire final day of the G-1 from 2007-2016. If anything, I recommend getting the 2011 version (and 2016 but I think ppl here have seen that) for the shocker that was Naito beating Tanahashi in the semis (semis and finals were on the same day back then) and the finals of Nakamura vs. Naito. This was also the year before the briefcase became a thing.

Kota/Naito was unsurprisingly very good.

This is the first I've watched ZSJ. He's a twig. It's really off-putting.

I didn't mind the result, though. With an injury like Tanahashi's, a technical wizard should be able to isolate the arm and get a submission. And it's not like Tanahashi should be winning the tournament anyway.

Re: ***Official Indy/Puro Thread***

I'm not a big critic of finisher kickouts in general (they've been going on in big Japanese matches dating to the 90s AJPW epics), but yeah, the Naito kickout from the Ibushi second-rope piledriver is over-the-top ridiculous.

Re: ***Official Indy/Puro Thread***

Good grief Ibushi's sell job for Naito's second Destino is amazing.

Re: ***Official Indy/Puro Thread***

Ishii-Goto is fantastic. Probably my favorite type of match, just two tough hosses beating the hell out of each other.

Re: ***Official Indy/Puro Thread***

Turned off the last half hour of Raw and decided to check out Ibushi/Naito. Both these guys are good (like, really good), but towards the end of the match, it just seemed like a contest to see who could land on their neck the most.

2nd rope piledriver, 2nd rope German suplex, reverse hurricanrana from the top rope, first destino...These things should really be finishing matches.

Will check out some of the other matches today hopefully.

Re: ***Official Indy/Puro Thread***

Watched Omega/Suzuki. Suzuki is a boss, and if I were in charge I'd absolutely think about strapping him with one of the big belts at some point (I don't know what his contract situation is/if he works for other promotions etc.) ... match was solid other than Suzuki not being able to take a reverse hurricanrana correctly, and I can forgive that. Thought Suzuki came out of this match looking better than Omega, and I thought the same thing (and then some) about the Okada/Suzuki match early in the year. I guess I'm a Suzuki fanboy.

Only saw the highlights of Ibushi/ZSJ, but they were pretty great.

I liked Omega/Tonga a lot, fun little sprint.

Okada/Elgin is a must-watch, easily (IMO) Okada's best non-Omega effort of the year.

Tanahashi-Nagata was really freaking good, too.

Add Ibushi-Ishii to the must-see list. God, the G1 is awesome.
