  1. After a failed attempt to get into the NFL, Brock Lesnar turns his attention to the world of Japanese wrestling. We cite Lesnar's autobiography "Death Clutch" as to get an idea of Lesnar's mindset going into NJPW and touch on his mindset wrestling his what was perceived as his final match in IGF as well. Also get an interesting peak into how the Inokis did business when they were heads on NJPW.
  2. This is a Fans Bring The Weapons Match. A really fun match. A fun combination of hardcore wrestling of the ring and creative use of the unique weapons.This also has a really fun crowd wrestling section part. The crowd is energetic. A super, dooper fun match. I have this on my match of the year tracker. A strong recommendation for this match.
  3. Not sure how to describe well this match but, i think this deserves to be seen by everybody. Bryan Alvarez said this was the best match he has ever seen in his life. Match rating - Strongly, strongly, strongly recommend
  4. Hi folks, Long time no post for me here, but I thought I'd announce the recent launch of the Puro Pourri Podcast, in which myself and my friends George and David delve into a thematic look at pro wrestling in Japan. Our approach is a combination of serious discussion and complete irreverence and we are hoping that the show will be something of an alternative to the numerous podcasts out there that focus mainly on up to the minute reviews of modern puro in all its forms. We'll be tackling different themes in a series of episodes which will form what I suppose you could term volumes. So far we've recorded 7 episodes, three of which will be up on Soundcloud by the end of today. We've also submitted it for Itunes approval. The first three episodes act as an introduction to each of us as hosts and our fandom, with each of us going into detail about the first puro matches we ever saw and rewatching them afresh, The forthcoming volume will cover invasion angles in Japanese wrestling, with particular reference to the New Japan vs UWFi feud: what it symbolized, how it played out and how influential it has been. Expect obscure references to English lower division football and pop culture wherever necessary, alongside our more analytical discussions. Episode 1+2 are available now at Soundcloud, with episode 3 following later today: https://soundcloud.com/the-puro-pourri-podcast You can find us on Twitter @puropodcast and on facebook @puropourri. We'll be using this thread to publicize all future episodes. All feedback and support is of course more than welcome. Cheers! -Daniel
  5. After a couple of high risk moves that end up outside the ring, they settle into an extended sequence where Kikuchi sits on the mat like Baby Huey. Hashikawa throws kick after kick, which K completely no-sells with a "ho hum bored now" look on his face. It goes from awesome to amusing to when-will-this-end. Then you come back full circle and start to wonder if Hashikawa can actually come up with a strike that will work. Sadly, nothing comes of it. Eventually, Kikuchi gets bored and stands up. He no-sells a few more strikes, and then they move into a plodding your turn-my turn rest of the match. I found most of this one to be a bit of a snoozer. The out-of-nowhere kimura submission that ends the match is pretty great, though.
  6. This is one of my favourite joshi matches. I can't really do it justice. Joshi fanatics will tell you GAMI isn't that good, but I love her. Tall, awkard girl with a big belly and completely sullen and melancholic face that is like carved from a rock who can go like a motherfucker is an awesome wrestling character. Lifelong undercarder pushing beyond his limitations vs. established star is one of my favourite match types and GAMI does some really brilliant wrestling here. Gami uses her lucha technique and just totally outclasses Hyuga. Really, there wasn't a single move in this bout GAMI did that didn't rock. Includes the most memorable use of a face rake ever. It's a Hyuga match so it also has the fast pace, brutal skull crushing knee attack moves and headdropping suplexes for you workrate addicts to sink your teeth into. Still, GAMI.
