    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    No, of course they aren't going to do it but it's a bold statement and a signal of positive growth for NOAH.


    Anyway, here is my thoughts on the last three matches.

    Singles Match
    Moose vs. Takashi Sugiura: ***½
    It was way better than I thought it would be. It was mostly down to Sugiura but Moose was good as well. Very stiff and had some great moments. If this is the Moose to come, bring on more Moose

    GHC Junior Heavyweight Title Match
    Daisuke Harada (c) vs. Minoru Tanaka: ****¼
    Really good match. Everything was very good. It was technically wonderful. Harada delivered his strikes well. Very compelling all throughout the match. Minoru Tanaka is 45 years old wow what a performance.

    GHC Heavyweight Title Match
    Eddie Edwards (c) vs. Kenou: ****¼
    Really good match from both men. Kenou with some nasty kicks and taking some unbelievable bumps. Especially that dragon suplex on the apron. Ouch. Edwards pulled his heart into this match but it wasn’t enough. Great match. Good crowd.

    cannot for the life of me get that NOAH show to load on the google drive, just keeps erroring.

    The people behind the google drive have helped raised $7,702 to contribute to Takayama's medical costs which is awesome.

    Does that for me some times. Just go back to it an hour or two later. But the show is worth the wait, it's pretty good.

    As I understand it the traffic has gotten so high with the archive it errors out. Sometimes I just download the show & delete it later.

    I'm pretty sure I said the same thing to Zero when I saw Tanaka for the first time at an AJPW show. Great guy.


    ---


    Just watched DG Final Gate. Pissed that T-Hawk's won the tag belts. Hate that guy. Hate that CIMA and Dragon Kid's fantastic reign got cut by injury and T-Hawk gets a rub from it. Fuckers Though I guess they'd have just dropped it here to the same team anyway. Ah well, at least Mochizuki is still champ and Naruki Doi has a belt once more also.

    Dragon Gate's had a very good year. Minus anything involving T-Hawk. Fuck that guy. Stalker Ichikawa makes up for it, though.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    This is probably one of the few years I didn't actively hate DG. Much like during BxB Hulk's last title reign & then Shingo after his heel turn, Mochizuki has made the DG Title worth watching. I really enjoyed his Susumu match especially. Huge step up from YAMATO as champion and I enjoyed most of DK/CIMA too. Eita's an excellent pro wrestler and both Ben-K & Big R are great guys. In general there's much more variety on the roster than years past it feels like. (Thankfully Yosuke's properly been depushed as well though there's still a lot of time in some DG matches where it feels like the moves are just moves & they don't matter, it's not as bad as it used to be)

    I wish Super Shisa wrestled more.

    Real Hero Drive is the best way I assume.

    Real Hero Google Drive or IPTV package with GAORA + buying PPVs. iHeartDG provides promo translations etc.

    RH Google Drive has a ton of puro. Always worth a look.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    Yass cheers lads, just started Final Gate, I know a couple of faces from ROH shows I've watched in the past but I'm basically going in blind here haha. The state of this Skywalker fella though, big green and orange outfit really doesn't go

    As much as I hate his look, Skywalker actually is quite good, really stood out to me. There was a guy in leopard print shorts and trainers as well? Very weird to see people wrestling in trainers haha but he did look decent as well. The other two guys I didn't really click but I assume this is a young lion kind of match, just to get them in front of a crowd so in that respect, good on them, decent wee dark match.

    CIMA has to be the biggest babyface on the roster, letting the kid into the ring even though she's wearing the oppositions shirt haha!

    DDT D-King Grand Prix Day 1 Card is looking pretty damn good. I'm looking forward to it.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    I started with the Peter Pan show but that's a long show. I think start with the recent DAMNATION show. I think Shake could give you a better reference though.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    1,598 for NOAH at Korakuen for Kenou/Kiyomiya - Huge number for a fresh champion & fresh off being a young boy challenger. Is this comeback for NOAH for real? NOAH the LIVE!

    Both that and Gotoge vs Nakajima/Kitamiya got strong reviews live, the show seems pretty good on paper as a whole. Can't wait to watch.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    Hope it's the turning around. NOAH has shot up in my list of favorite wrestling promotions in the past year or so. But they did this last year and the attendance tittered off. Just hope this year, they can keep it up and gain people's interest.

    Just jump in. It's pretty much easy to get into DDT as soon as you start watching. Just start from the first show this year and go onwards or whatever.


    Well done to NOAH for the attendance. Hope the trend continues with Kenou on top.

    Mike Bailey vs Shuji Ishikawa and Jiro Kuroshio vs Konosuke Takeshita from the D-King Grand Prix was really good. Haven't watched the whole show yet but I'll get round to it.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    Been hearing nothing but good things about NOAH for the past few months so I'm thinking of taking a look at some recent stuff on the RealHero drive, I really liked Nakajima from the time he showed up in New Japan in 2016, and watched that awesome match he and Brian Cage had last year some time. Any specific show from the last few months I should start at?

    NOAH The Great Voyage 2017 In Yokohama could be a good starting off point but I would just recommend the 22/12 Show. That was really good with two MOTYC's.
