  1. Gus Sonnenberg (c) vs Joe Malcewicz AWA World Heavyweight Championship March 15, 1929 "Sonnenberg versus Malcewicz" http://mirc.sc.edu/islandora/object/usc%3A19666 Related ---------- Great to see these guys actually working holds instead of just the all-action highlights you usually get with matches from this era. I remember reading the thing that spurred on the creation of the modern working style wasn't the slow mat-work but audiences not liking the standing Greco-Roman stuff. If that's true, this match gives a nice call back to those days with them putting a lot more time and struggle in the collar-and-elbow tie-ups than we're used to seeing, and I loved that as someone who hates seeing guys treating those tie-ups as a mere formality. The mat stuff also looks cool and shooty with guys looking for submissions. Feels like a proto-shoot style match, just without the strikes.
  2. Pretty damn good young lion match. This was the earliest Suzuki I‘ve seen, but he was already firmly into the shootstyle thing. Lots of cool slick matwork with Suzuki locking in some clinical looking armbars and doing some really cool stuff, like turning a Fujiwara armbar into a pin. The cool thing was that they didn‘t make it look easy, both guys had to fight even for something like a snapmare. Watching this made me wonder how either guy would have done on a different career path, e.g. Suzuki staying in NJPW and Iizuka doing shootstyle. The last couple minutes rule with Suzuki hitting big throws and a great looking corner dropkick while trying to fend off Iizukas Sambo leglocks, while both guys are laying in the smacks. Good shit.

  5. Yeah, I'm pimping a Hirota match now. What are you gonna do about it? This was a cool sprint that WORKED and told a STORY due to Hirota being Hirota. This was before she was a total clown act, so she actually tried to be competitive with Meiko by rushing her with hip attacks and rollups, and Meiko putting her in place with arm-snapping flash submissions and general viciousness. Hirota's Hip Attacks work because she has a variety of them – hip attack to the shoulder, hip attacke to the side of the head, avalanche hip attack etc. Match a few neat moments (including Hirota reversing the armbreaker in a great sequence) and Hirota's partial sloppiness actually added to the match. Also, badass finish where Hirota keeps blocking Satomura's finisher so Satomura does like a modified judo throw into her DVB. Never seen that anywhere.
  6. Another sprint where they avoid overkill and instead focus on bringing the asskicking. I think I prefer the GAEA sprint over your typical back and forth spotfest because it comes across as too eager workers pushing really hard rather than two workers trying to get every move in. Satomura looked badass again – brutal strikes, arm-snapping flash submissions – and Sato had some neat selling and brutal stomps. Her chopping down Meiko with stiff backfists was impressive too. Effective finish.
