  1. PAC!!!

    I finally got around to seeing some Pac on youtube.

    Pac vs Penta Zero Miedo - TNT
    What a cool little match; I guess this is when Pac and Penta earned eachother's respect. They basically beat the crap out of eachother in a tiny little ring. Pentagon's strikes are so precise and loud that halfway through the match, I start feeling sorry for Pac and wondering if this match is supposed to be a new Joe/Low Ki stiffness competition. I guess that it's both partly due to ring-size ...

  2. Triple H vs Goldust Part 1

    There's a bit of psychological breakdown in the introduction to this match, but the real highlight of these old Coliseum videos is the old lighting of the arenas. This event, Royal Rumble '97, took place in a pack'd Alamo-Dome and the brightness of the in-ring action makes the superstars appear truly larger-than-life. I want'd to see these matches again because the storyline was serious 'nother-man-putting-his-hands-on-my-wife sort of business and the participants really can't be ignore'd. On one ...

  3. B-Boy/Makabe 1-26-18

    This was a Solid-Steel Championship match with B-Boy defending. I can see how other viewers might have their quibbles with how this match went down, but for what I saw them pull off, I'm giving it a more than solid ****... I almost have to find that Danielson/Homicide match now, because one of these bad-hand-story matches left a bad taste in my mouth, iirc, and it wasn't Makabe/B-Boy. After a second-viewing, I have to give it to Makabe and B-Boy, they're a great match and I have to wonder if a re-match ...

  4. Wrestle-1 Tag Notes (Kondo & Doi vs T-Hawk & El Lindaman 2018/9/2)

    I'm still not used to Japanese "indies"; truthfully, nothing is like it was when I first started watching puroresu 20+years ago. Because this match was awesome, I wish I had known what names to search for to find Wrestle-1 and take it seriously.

    Really interesting dynamic with one real veteran and his hoss partner against two worthy but incapable babyfaces. The Strong Hearts seem'd to be on the green side of the fence, at least character-wise, with T-Hawk being the weakest ...

  5. Makabe/Sonico (plus B-Boy~!)

    So, beginning with the triple-threat - things went in B-Boy's favor and it happen'd by surprise just when Makabe was down and out of earshot. It was a short match, not the epic we'd hope'd for, but with that sort of camera work, no one really minds (I think it was a tournament match anyways, but please don't quote me on that). What I pick'd up from the match was this: B-Boy uses his stiffness to his advantage (not just to please the audience), Makabe pretends to be a British mat-technician who bumps ...
