    Tetsuya Naito - Where he stands as a wrestler?

    Easily the best of the modern New Japan crowd. Most great matches, works well as heel or face, most consistent seller, easily the most charismatic. Can do minimalist character stuff but also work effective bombfests. Not perfect and can be inconsistent but the positives easily outweigh the flaws.

    MOTD by Decade

    New pick for the 60s.

    NJPW G1 Climax 2019

    The Bullet Club/Shibata angle was gold. From KENTA refusing a tag and Ishii correctly anticipating an attack as he re-entered the ring to KENTA's motivation ("By rejecting me, you did this, not me") to the Shibata's vengeance to the final beatdown/posing. They pretty much nailed it.

    Was Cole/Gargano III really that much more excessive? In fact, the excess made more sense considering the stipulation and escalation compared to the endless finisher kickouts of their first two matches.

    WWE Summerslam 2019

    Seth's rib selling wasn't necessarily bad but it wasn't good either. In his defense, midsection selling is not that easy but nothing he did truly stood out. The decisiveness of the finish was odd considering how Brock was been booked since 2012. So Rollins is the ace now? Nothing else could really explain that finish.

    The Official Seth Rollins is Terrible Thread

    Yep, those two are literally the worst two options. Having said that, I'd take Rollins over Ziggler.

    That's it for Naito then? Disappointing since he is the most over and, IMO, the best wrestler in the company. But he makes whatever he is given work so I'm not too worried.

    [1987-04-27-NJPW] Antonio Inoki vs Masa Saito

    Very interesting match. Slow build but psychology wise it was sound. But then it escalates into a fight as Saito unleashes Inoki's fury. Inoki snapping and pounding a handcuffed Saito into a bloody pulp was quite the finishing stretch. ***1/2

    [1986-06-19-NJPW] Antonio Inoki vs Dick Murdoch

    Really good psychology-based match. Inoki desperately trying to fight Murdoch off only for Murdoch to drag him to the ground by the injured arm was the highlight. The finish was botched but that doesn't take away from the stuff that preceded it. ***3/4

    [2019-07-28-NJPW-G1 Climax 29: Night Ten] Tetsuya Naito vs Jon Moxley

    This was hugely disappointing. The initial portion was really fun and Naito's selling was generally good but the most of the match was just bland. Felt like a generic Ambrose WWE match. **1/4

    WWE TV 08/05 - 08/11 Comedy can truly help in dark times

    The women's tag title change was also sort of out of the blue. It happened on TV 6 days before the #2 event of the year with close to no build after some of the competitors had not been featured for weeks. Their scheduling seems all over the place.

    [1973-10-09-AJPW] The Destroyer vs Mil Mascaras

    Minimalist mat clinic with a lot of attention to detail. Way better than the more highly acclaimed match they had the year after. ****1/4

    [2004-01-04-NJPW-Wrestling World 2004] Yuji Nagata vs Kensuke Sasaki

    Aggressive, hateful, bloody brawling and a compact layout. Another great mid-2000s Nagata match.

    The build to this feud has been dominating the weeks leading up to Summerslam but the payoff is going to be after Summerslam in all probability. Shouldn't they hold off on this and focus on the stuff happening at Summerslam first?
  15. Good match with the 3 distinct approaches coming together, cool spots and stiffness. Joe's out of control dive was the highlight. But yeah this was hampered by the usual triple threat layout and some parts were repetitive and aimless. Also they could have taken it home 5-7 minutes earlier. ***1/4
