    Is this right that Go and Fujita had a match in front of no fans where they stared each other down for 30 minutes before making contact? or are they exaggerating on the VOW flagship? That sounds absolutely horrendous if true.

    I think it was 32 minutes in total. I thought it was very good myself. There was something oddly intresting at seeing the two stare at each other for that period of time. It's probably the best half of the match too.

    Haven't watched it, but the first 16 minutes apparently they don't even move. Then Fujita walks from one corner to another.

    Apparently they did something similar in a tag match earlier in the year for like 15 minutes also.

    No, I'm not really sure why either.

    Comes off like people are clutching at straws for some wrestling to praise at the moment for a match that has staring as it's main selling point to be talked up like this.

    Agreed, how little else do you have to do to sit through that and not fast forward

    I think people grossly exaggerated their "5 star" claims for it. But I thought it worked for the most part. It's not something you can ever do again though.

    Re: The Official Puro Discussion Thread

    It's just disingenuous people trolling and trying to seem smarter than others by liking it. It objectively sucked to start off with 30 minutes of not moving, however from a booking perspective it was smart because it got people talking about it and Fujita vs Go in a main event wasn't going to be a big draw or talking point outside of a certain niche and ultimately it got more famous than it ever would have as a real match. I look at it as a publicity stunt more than a match, though by the end some stuff was actually good and liking the second half is much more understandable. No justification for the first half however.

    Also I think they should have went all the way with it and just went the full 60 draw instead of ending it 2 minutes short for hilarity's sake.
