    I think that's what they call a work in progress I'm currently reading Chris Charlton's book about the history of New Japan so I might watch some matches as I read through the years as a companion piece to the book. I've always wanted to check out the 80s tag matches.

    5 of the six year's I've been regularly watching I have Okada in my MOTY. For someone openly critical of Okada for years that comes as a surprise.

    Haha that sounds like me with Shawn Michaels. You criticise them and then you look at your list of favourite matches and they pop up everywhere.

    Okada is better than Michaels and I’m super critical of both.

    Come at ME now.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    1990's Michaels or 2000s Michaels?

    I think those comments show the value of consistency rather than only delivering in a couple big matches a year.

    Re: NJPW match of the year by year

    The best New Japan match of 2008 to me is either Yoshie vs Nakanishi from PREMIUM, Minoru vs Taguchi from the BOSJ, or Yoshie's matches with Nagata and Goto from the G1.
