  1. I LOVE PRO WRESTLING. If you're looking for transcendent violence and WAR-esque matches filled with actual hate instead of just lame and tired tropes that have clouded modern japanese wrestling this is your best bet. Just an amazing match with Hideki Suzuki and Nakanoue murdering each other and unleashing shoot headbutts and Futen head kicks and stomps on each other. The match gets thrown out and then restarted, Suzuki'spartner tries to hold him back and then Suzuki loses him temper and beats the hell out of him and all the young boys.......honestly if you like violence in pro wrestling I cannot imagine you not loving this match. The only complaint I could see is that it wasn't long enough but it didn't feel like it was lacking in any way. I'm tracking down every tag with Suzuki-Nakanoue interactions now. ****1/2
  2. Hama has good fat man offence and can be fun against someone who knows how to pinball for him like Uto but this was all about Hideki Suzuki mauling Nakanoue, and it's not just that they vary their strikes and throw awesome shoot headbutts, kicks and slaps instead of just standing there looking at each other like idiots and exchanging chops and weak elbows for five minutes, they also do the awesome lock ups, shoving, knocking each other off the apron etc. you'll see in older matches too. ***3/4
  3. As much as I love Rush and LA PARK I don't see them keeping up with the insane shit Hideki Suzuki and Nakanoue do to win the prestigious price of the coveted "best wrestling feud of 2016" in the coveted GOTNW awards™. Man. Why can't this be the norm in modern japanese wrestling? Guys start beating the shit out of each other as soon as they enter the ring and continue hating on each other and throwing shoot headbutts even after the match ends. So much happens here-Daichi puts on his best performance yet, he does this insane ninja kicks early on while they're brawling outside that's just insane, up there with this: in terms of powerful kicking images. And he keeps it up during the match too-unloading with kicking combinations and even doing the Murakami flurry in the corner! That's a sure fire way to get me to praise you. I also really like Nakanoue and Uto as the de facto heel team. Hideki Suzuki is the unquestionable star of the match though. He manages to break Uto's nose, stretches everyone into oblivion and brings back the HEAD STOMPING. And Uto and Nakanoue keep up with him, make Suzuki, as dangerous as he is already, fight for everything, grabbing his limbs when he strikes at them, pushing him off etc. I brough up the escalation of violence in my last review-and Suzuki and Nakanoue absolutely *get it*. It's like you're watching 1993 WAR, you get the lock up, some teases of strikes, some slaps are thrown while fighitng for it but just enough to keep you on the edge of your toes but not enough to really turn into a full on brawl and when they go through with just smacking each to hell the crowd completely loses it. ****1/4
  4. WAR tag matches fucking rule and I'm glad to see the Suzuki-Nakanoue feud bring them back, this wasn't as good as the 5/30 tag but few things in life are as good as PRIDE stomps to the head and that match had those. This one wasn't that crazy, but it was still the kind of japanese wrestling I fell in love with and continue to love, no bullshit "uwaaaa who has better weak looking forearm strikes between the two of us" everything here is very rough, you have guys pushing each other into corners, taking each other down, knocking each other off the apron, it's neat and the escalation of the violence is done extremely well too. Suzuki's takedowns are a thing of beauty in particular, he makes an arm winger takedown look like art. I really liked everyone's performances in this one, Nomura continues to wrestle like the shooty kicker I'd want him to, desperately attempting leglocks and armbars, Nakanoue matches Suzuki in violence and really lays his stuff in as does Uto who brough an interesting flair to this match, everything he does is pro style but he does some really creative moves that aren't creative for creativeness sake, pretty much everything he invents includes brutally cranking his opponent's neck and that is the type of stuff I love to see. ****
