G. Badger's Puro + More > Naomichi Marufuji in NJPW 2009-2010

Posted 12 June 2018

So, I got hyped on Naomichi Marufuji after his fantastic job during the Champion Carnival and Triple Crown challenge. Generally speaking, I am lukewarm on him. Sometimes, he's really a treat to watch as his execution and timing can be impeccable. Other times, his execution is spotty and over ambitious. Additionally, depending on what time period you're wa...

G. Badger's Puro + More > 2018 Best Match Watched Contenders & more

Nevertheless, he still kicks ass and is still the Dangan!vs Yuji Nagata (03/19/11 NJPW): NJPW Cup 2011. This be a badass bout without a doubt. There's no commentary so, you can hear every strike land. This was as brutal as Electric...

G. Badger's Puro + More > Spotlight: Eddie Guerrero in NJPW 1996

Posted 28 May 2018

Eddie Guerrero was one of my favorite wrestlers that I never really saw enough of. I caught him sporadically in WCW and tuned out the WWF very shortly after the Radicalz stuff. I always wanted to see his ECW and Japan work. Even more appealing about his time in Japan was that he wrestled in costume as Black Tiger! I was and still am a big fan of the NJ Jr...
