In Topic: Comparing 7/93 Misawa-Kawada to Tana-Naito from Friday

14 August 2017 - 07:30 PM

Interesting observation about Naito's more theatrical character work. I guess that'd be true up and down the roster (although I'm not sure what Okada's supposed to be). It's not like Kikiuchi was bringing a stuffed cat to the ring.

 

And this was a good one to watch, particularly if you find yourself let down by the body of Okada matches. I'll take Natio/Tanahashi over Okada/Omega every time.

Takayama is paralyzed, and this match might be party of the reason why.
 
Was it a good enough match to justify Takayama's current condition? No.
 
Was it a good match? Not really. Takayama was pretty awful at professional wrestling.
 
I don't know, man. Wrestling is awful.

We've had some shitty gimmick posters and people who were too weird to tell whether they were working or not but this one takes the cake.

 

Neat. What did you think of the match?

In Topic: Kazuchika Okada vs Satoshi Kojima (NJPW G1 Climax 07/27/17)

Why was Okada acting like a bad guy all of a sudden here? If this is the beginning of an actual tendency on his part, I welcome it - it's not clear to me what his character is supposed to be, and some cheating would help his matches make some sense.

 

If not, it came off like a contrived way to pop the crowd for one night.

 

It wasn't 'all of a sudden'. In an interview leading up to G1, Okada said that the third generation wrestlers don't deserve a spot in the G1 and that they're boring to wrestle because no one believes that they will win, so naturally he is positioned as a heel when faced against Kojima.

 

Oh, interesting. Didn't know that. I withdraw my objection.
