  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Daniel Makabe - Wrestling Genius ... and SONICO~! (plus, B-BOY!)

    I'm a big Daniel Makabe fan, don't ask me why. A lot of people are into him now, and he might be retiring so I'm going to review some of his matches. I was face'd with a plethora of awesome matches to choose from. He fights Hammerstone, Warhorse, and Alex Shelley - so there's not so perfect opponents that I like who Daniel gets to work different matches with. And then, there's matches with Kevin Ku and Cabana Man Dan, which I imagine could knock my socks off. I decide'd to check out a series of ...

  5. Rediscovering Jake Lee as NOAH-Superstar/NOAH Main-Event Renaissance

    Jake Lee was an All Japan guy who I really like'd seeing a few times back around 2020. He was one of Kento Miyahara's best opponents IIRC (I'm just a youtuber, not a real tape collector, so my watching is spotty at best). He was like a heavyweight version of KENTA when KENTA was on his rise to the top of worldwide fame. He had some heavy kickboxing leanings, but much heavier than KENTA could ever had hope'd for; so those roundhouse kicks meant something new in heavyweight strategy and against someone ...
