    Ultimo Dragon vs Randy Orton

    #169 vs #198 from last time. Two guys with generally good reputations, except here, where their nominee threads were largely negative. Career WWE worker vs a guy who had successful runs in Japan, Mexico and the United States but flopped, literally and figuratively, in WWE. Dragon thread Orton Thread
  2. Rey Mysterio Jr. vs Ultimo Dragon - WCW Spring Stampede 1997 Ultimo Dragon is one of the more infuriating wrestlers of all time. There is no reason why he could not be at the level of a Jushin Liger or a Rey Mysterio, but he constantly gets in his own way with offense-first approach to wrestling. This match is laid out like the World War III match (I need to rewatch) with Dragon kicking ass for the majority of the match. Again, Dragon's explosive offense looks tremendous: Spinning Argentine Backbreaker, Powerbomb into a hotshot, awesome Running LigerBomb and a wicked Tombstone. There is no strategy. It is just an exhibition. Case in point, he lifts Rey up after having him beat just to put him in a sleeper. This had the announcers and me scratching our heads. Dragon's string of incredible offense keeps going, but it is not going to go anywhere. The finish run piques my interest because now Rey is ready to go spot for spot for Dragon so we get awesome somersault planchas and hurricanranas and Stagger Lee Marsahll? Oh, WCW. Dragon hitting a dropkick to a turned Rey while on the ropes was a great counter move, a gnarly bump and loved the plancha it set up. Now that it getting more competitive, I am decently grooving to this. Dragon dropkicks Rey in mid-air and really puts all he has into a Giant Swing He was really whipping him around. Dragon looking for his bread and butter, the Tiger Suplex (guess Benoit had dibs on the Dragon Suplex), but Rey makes the ropes. Rey nabs a flash hurricanrana out of nowhere for the win. Once they get past the Ultimo Dragon masturbation session (hey it was nice eye candy I will give them that), I thought they worked a pretty hot finish stretch with Dragon throwing out some nice counters and Rey constantly looking for that quick pinfall. Rey takes their PPV series 2-1 and in a very good match. ***1/4

    WAR You Might Have Missed

    In the grim darkness of the the near past there is only WAR! Yes, I'm back to Tenryu's playground to check out more wrestling that I may have missed or just forgotten. Takeshi Ishikawa vs Great Kabuki (09/15/92): Oh man, so I was hoping this would be a very good match but, eh it was just sluggish. There was no build to a climax just a lot of sleeper work and bleeding. It was OK but, I was disappointed. Let's get this back on track! Same show... Ultimo Dragon vs Negro Casas (09/15): This was 15 minutes of perfectly executed lucharesu. This was a real joy to watch. It wasn't super dramatic with a deep story (now maybe I'm wrong since they had a program going in Mexico at the time) but, sometimes wrestling doesn't have to be more than a contest between two competitors. Add the fact that Ultimo and Casas wrestled fast and smart - and you've got a great match! Genichiro Tenryu & Ashura Hara vs Masa Chono & Shinya Hashimoto (10/01/93): Ten minutes of solid ass-kicking. Hash (IWGP champ) gets on the mic before the bell and talks some trash which kicks off this intense sprint-fight. As much as I love a smooth wrestling match (like above), I love a rough non-cooperative slobber knocker just the same. All four guys use their simple offense and great selling to put on a near classic match. Don't believe me? Watch for Tenryu's chops on Chono...that should get you going... Tatsuo Nakano vs Genichiro Tenryu (05/26/96): Don't think Nakano was safe with Tenryu & don't think Tenryu was safe with Nakano. Five minutes of trying to hurt each other wrestling at its finest. If you need a quick Tenryu fix - this is your match Thanks!
