Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

Got day drunk and am rewatching the Summerslam 4-way main event.

Prematch thoughts during the entrances:

Michael Cole is the worst.

Remember when Braun was a Wyatt? And now he's light years ahead of the boring one Bray Wyatt.

As a fan, my main issue with Roman is that his move set sucks and his stupid magic moves that incapacitate people look stupid.

Samoa Joe is the best and can do no wrong.

Edit. lol. Brock is the 4th guy and sorta boring at this point.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

I'm still surprised that they just had Braun maintain his Wyatt look, pushed him as a totally separate monster, and it's worked beautifully.

I advocated at the time that they should have tweaked his look to separate him more from Bray, but their choice not to do so seems totally fine now.

Kawada vs. Kobashi from 1989 as part of theditch.biz AJPW chronological archive. Kobashi is a rookie, Kawada barely more experienced and in 12 minutes they show everyone the future of puroresu. Amazing.

The archives are amazing, BTW.

Heart Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

love those sites from theditch.

I watched Kobashi/Misawa from 3/1/03 a few nights ago while drunk. I liked it even more while drunk. A few spots where the match could legit end and still feel like a GOAT contender. This match makes me feel sad about what Big Dave did to his own rating system. There's no doubt this is >>>> a few matches rated over 5*...

Is this the match that you nominated for the greatest match ever bracket we had a while back. If not which one was it, because that match was awesome

That'd have to be the one. They have a couple of incredible matches in 1997 but I don't think anyone compares to the above.

Gotta pimp this match...If you like the younger days of the future four pillars, watch Kawada vs. Taue from 1/15/91. It's reviewed on theditch site here. This match is great by itself and in context. Long story short, Misawa and Jumbo were feuding and having many great tags and 6-man matches in 1990. Kawada and Taue were the young lions and always beat the **** out of each other in these matches. This match is the culmination of 6-7 months of build between the two. There is quite a bit of blood in this match. A rare blade job in AJPW and it works very well here. Of course, they'd feud for another two years before they became The Holy Demon Army

Another match that's rarely talked about: Taue vs. Misawa on 4/15/95 in the Champions Carnival final. One of the showings of pro wrestling ever. This match is an absolute masterpiece. If you couldn't tell, it's one of my absolute favorites. It is violent without any outside the ring work or any weapons. Taue picks a body part, doesn't relent, and Misawa sells.

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

I swear I'm not going to post every match I watch from thevault.biz but had to post props for this one ... Kawada/Fuyuki vs. Can-Am Express, 1989. I almost skipped it but the description had it as a famous match so I tried it. So happy I did. First and foremost, an amazing crowd. The Can-Ams (who I didn't know much about) absolutely bring it. A must-watch.

Well If Antidan liked them in that match, he needs to scroll up a few posts and watch the match that both me and you posted. That was a great match

Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

I will get to it eventually, I am working through the AJPW archive in chronological order. In late 1989 right now.

I just realized that match happened the same day as Jumbo vs. Tenryu (6/5). No comment on that amazing match? Jumbo was so so good. In the upcoming 6-mans he always brought the fire. Too bad his career got cut short by cancer in late 1992.

Also, I have no recollection of this:
What the ****? I realize TMNT were huge in those days but jfc

Obviously great match, but I did say I'm not going to post every great one I see in this thread. I'd be posting something from those archives on a near-daily basis.

Also, it was one of those matches that underwhelmed me just a little because I had read the testimonial and I think got overhyped for it. I wish I hadn't read the testimonial. It's clearly a great match.

Talking Re: What match are you currently watching atm?

I got lost in the world of YouTube and found this theme again. It's from New Beginning in Osaka (2014). I do believe this is the only time he used this version of his theme. imo The Golden Boy would benefit a little bit from the minute long intro before the pin drop to his music. It's so so good.

Audio:


The entrance (complete with sword and dinosaur):


How has this not been his music ever since?
