Right start again.

A few weeks ago i bought my first ever wrestling tapes.

However i want some help on my next choices.

I bought ECW Barely Legal, All star dream slam I and AAA when worlds collide.

My favourite was ecw barely legal loved the M-Pro Tag match and the main event(s)

I didn't know what to think of the other two i thought the AAA was interesting to see some young wwe superstars and i thought there was going to be riot when the main event was going on.

all star dream slam one i kind of enjoyed. I could definitely see why it is some wrestling writers ppv as it has 5 companies working together to make some great matches.

I especially liked the two on two matches where the pin kept getting interrupted and the match where the blonde girl did a juicer that Steve Corino would be proud of (Lot of heat in that match)

But i just couldn't really get into it maybe joshi just isn't for me.

What i want next is some advice on M-Pro and Toruymon (Have i spelled that right) as i heard that they are both very similar.

I am going to buy The Best of The Great Sasuke already.
and i also want to buy a tape with the best of Kobashi in it but which one there are so many.

Full tape listing is here www.simania.co.uk (Most of Kobashi's tapes are on Wrestler Compilations.

Your comments and advice will be much appreciated
Cheers

Just so you know, the blonde girl you're referring to is Akira Hokuto in her match with Shinobu Kandori. That was one of the most emotional things I've ever seen. Anyway, Hokuto is a WON Hall of Famer who retired in 2000. Also considered by many as the "female Mick Foley", for her unreal list of injuries, as well as a HIGH pain tolerance. Believe me, that match is the tip of the iceberg.

Anyway, joshi isn't for everybody, that's true. I'd recommend some Zero-One, personally, especially when Paul London was there (and hopefully will return).



After a quarter of a century on this planet, there's three things I know for sure...
1)Ain't nothing like a Dirty Pair marathon on New Year's Eve.
2)I'd make a fine Mrs. HHH II.
3) I'd make an acceptable Mrs. Orton.

Thanks Ringmistress, another thing about that match was the bump that Akira took on the table before hand.
Botched tombstone OUCH!

I'll come back in two days to comment on what has been left here

Interesting. I always thought Megumi Kudoh was more the female Foley than Hokuto. Hokuto is one of the greats though. She's currently active as Kensuke Sasaki's manager in New Japan. (At a recent show, she held off most of the Makai Club by herself)

If you're liking the MPro, one assumes you like the juniors. I'd recommend

Michinoku Pro - These Days (1996)
That match features a 5 on 5 match that blows the MPro 6 Man from Barely Legal out of the water. It also features the some really intriguing Brit-style wrestling with Johnny Saint. On the down-side, it features Dynamite Kid's final match in a 5 man tag team match. Also a mediocre main event with Hayabusa-v-Shinzaki. The 10 man is easily worth the price, though.

Match to See:
Taka Michinoku/Shiryu (Kaz Hayashi/Dick Togo/Mens Teioh/Shoichi Funaki vs Super Delphin /Gran Naniwa/El Gran Hamada/Tiger Mask IV/Masato Yakusuhiji

Super J Cup 1994
Anybody attempting to get into something beyond WWE Sports Entertainment usually gets this tape in one of their first buys. In short, it's the best tournament ever. It's quite worth it with two MOTYCs on it. It also features both of the WWE Champs in Chris Benoit (Wild Pegasus) & Eddy Guerrero (Black Tiger II) in prominent roles.

Matches to See:
The Great Sasuke -v- Jushin "Thunder" Lyger
The Great Sasuke -v- Wild Pegasus (Chris Benoit)
(Also will be featured on the Chris Benoit DVD)

WAR Super J Cup 1995
While not as good as the first Super J Cup, it is still very good.

Matches to see:
El Gran Naniwa -v- Damien 666 (Hilarious match)
Chris Jericho -v- Hanzo Nakajima
Chris Jericho -v- Chris Benoit
Jushin "Thunder" Lyger -v- Ultimo Dragon


The Chris Benoit DVD itself has a plethora of great non-WWE matches. But that's not due until next month.

If you have a DVD player, and can find it for a good price, purchase the Wrestling Gold series. The matches are hit and miss, but the commentary by Jim Cornette & Dave Meltzer is excellent.

Ah, yes, you're correct, Madman. Megumi Kudo is the TRUE queen of extreme. Before you write off joshi completely, Reddragon, you should check out some of the FMW women's stuff. Tokyopop has some FMW DVD's, I believe. Well, no matter where you can find them, you should check out Megumi Kudo's stuff. She really DOES have a high pain threshold, and she's pretty hot too!

Still, Hokuto gets compared to Foley because of the way she wrestles through injuries, like a severely broken neck or separated shoulder. So, I'd say both ladies are pretty damn tough.

ARSION, ARSION, ARSION... nuff' said.

Kudoh vs. Shark Tsuchiya in FMW, exploding barbed wire match was the craziest thing I ever saw. Kudoh is great.

And Toryumon is always fun to watch. It's probably got the best gimmicks and coreographed matches I've seen with lots of comedy but some SERIOUS ass wrestling. And if you ain't seen CIMA, Magnum Tokyo, YOSSINO ( NWA Welterweight Champion) and my favorite, Milano Collection AT, then you're missing some great shit.
