I admit it... I'm a puroresu virgin... but I'm *so* curious about it.

What are some of the best matches a beginner could watch, and how do I go about getting them?

#2 Posted on is where they tell everybody to go first. I'd check out Michinoku Pro's "These Days" show. It's awesome. For some more coolu junior stuff, check out the Super J Cup 94 and 95. For non-junior stuff, see if they have any Best of whatever year. That'll probably be good.

I'd second the recommendation for Highspots. That's where I get my stuff.

Also, there are so many different kinds of puro that any recommendations really should depend on what kind of style a person like: traditional (All Japan, New Japan, Noah), garbage (FMW), lucha (Mickinoku, Toryumon), joshi (AJW, Arison, Gaea) and so on.

for a few years, the only puro tape i had ever seen was the j-crown 96 tape, which i got from a friend. i had heard nothing but good about michinoku pro, and that catered to my light-heavyweight love. so i forayed into the world of buying vids online. was the first place i was sent to, and i ordered "the best of michinoku pro part 1 - 1995 to 1997" and BOY, did it rock. it has the famous 10 man tags, as well as 8 or 9 other matches. it's cheap, too. so if you're a light-heavy-kinda-guy.. is a good place. there are many more, but yah. my story is done.

Some independent shows have vendors peddling puroresu. I got my 6-hr joshi tape from an ECW show.

I'm pretty tired of the "Whodunit?" where someone is ambushed and there's a mystery about the culprit. At least they didn't drag it out this time.
