Lumberjack Match: Go Shiozaki vs. Genba Hirayanagi 9:01

Takashi Sugiura & Naomichi Marufuji & Atsushi Aoki vs. Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima & Kento Miyahara 22:08. A very acceptable main event that at least gave you a sample of everything you wanted to see. Sugiura vs. Sasaki had bad ass striking, Nakajima took it to Sugiura with his kicks, Sugiura brutalizing Miyahara with some wicked elbows, Aoki was energetic. They didn't stick with any combo that long, and never did anything outstanding, but they kept the pace high and the action quality through quick tags. Miyahara is showing some definite improvement, as he's actually developed something of a moveset to go with his effort, and was definitely more entertaining than Aoki here. Nakajima was pretty clearly the best in the match, but everyone contributed in their own way. Marufuji was the biggest disappointment as he was hardly involved, but it seemed as though they were protecting him, particularly from taking much impact as he avoided pretty much all the strikes that were thrown his way. His initial segment with Nakajima was the counter laden tease it should have been, but Marufuji was never really involved in anything that could be classified as otherwise. ***

GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Title Match: Naomichi Marufuji & Atsushi Aoki vs. Atsushi Kotoge & Daisuke Harada 25:31. A really promising match. Quickness, athleticism, and teamwork all the way, all done fluidly with perfect timing. The match built through the use of better and better quick and athletic offense, though never anything amazing. Aoki had one of his better matches here, taking a lot of pressure of Marufuji, and the OPW team did really well, especially Kotoge who was their featured performer. The big spot was Kotoge taking innovator Marufuji out with his shiranui kai (also one of Kotoge's favorite holds) then double teaming Aoki including the thrust kick plus Death Valley bomb. You didn't truly believe the Osaka Pro team would win, but the match was worked so it didn't appear out of the question. ***1/2

Takashi Sugiura & Naomichi Marufuji & Atsushi Aoki vs. Yoshihiro Takayama & Bison Smith & Jun Akiyama 22:08

GHC Junior Heavyweight Title Match: Kotaro Suzuki vs. Eddie Edwards 29:40. I watched Kotaro's defenses against Nakajima, Ishimori, and Marvin prior to this, as those opponents sounded more interesting and credible (in NOAH terms) to me. None of the matches surprised me in the least (well, I was surprised at how much worse the Nakajima match was than their '09 draw) or showed me anything to make me expect a match or performance of this caliber. This was like an entirely different Kotaro. He has been channeling Misawa to try to keep his memory alive, but all of a sudden, for one night, Suzuki was capable of delivering a late 90's Misawa Budokan main event against an Edwards who was playing Kobashi or perhaps Akiyama. And not only wasn't it a strict homage, it really didn't even feel derivative or "dated" (apart from the few Misawa moves Suzuki always does). Tonight's match was like a new Budokan main event that had the attitude and effort to deliver a hardcore, technically excellent blow away epic from start to finish, but actually felt modern, fresh, and was genuinely surprising in many ways. It's true it didn't tell a great story and did rely on the moves (in between the sequences where Suzuki tried to pit his elbows against Edwards ruthless chops), but that's the best late 90's All Japan as well. It actually worked better here in that they were pulling off these counters to huge moves for more or less the first time, so you were always on your toes. They came up with some awesome spots such as Edwards die hard suplex on the apron, Edwards codebreaker off the top, Edwards trying to suplex Suzuki to the floor but Suzuki holding on so both went crashing, Edwards turning a Tiger driver off the apron into a Frankensteiner, Edwards hitting a Frankensteiner with Suzuki standing on the top, and so on. They weren't merely blowing through the spots, but rather they either spread them out effectively and/or used them to make it look like the match was about to end only to reset to keep things going for several move minutes. With the fast start and their never slowing down in terms of effort and intensity, this certainly did not give the appearance of a match that was going 30 minutes. They paced it effectively and did a nice job of struggling for and a great job of countering the big spots, including Suzuki landing on top for Edwards die hard off the top. By all means, this is not only Kotaro's best defense, but the best match of his career, and one that's different than any other match I've seen from him. ****1/4

NOAH Green Dome Maebashi SP 2/26/11 The Navig. Saturday in Maebashi taped 2/19/11
-3hr. Q=Perfect. 2 DVDs

Genba Hirayanagi vs. Kentaro Shiga 12:17

Kotaro Suzuki & Taiji Ishimori vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima & Satoshi Kajiwara 11:19. Good story match setting up Nakajima's GHC Junior Title shot against Suzuki on 3/5/11. Nakajima hurt Suzuki's neck with a couple big suplexes early, forcing Ishimori to go alone for the majority of the match because every time Suzuki would start to recover, Nakajima would run over and put him right back out of action with a cheap shot. Nakajima injured Suzuki's arm with a sliding kick when Suzuki put it on the ring apron to try to drag himself up, and later kicked him off the apron when he finally got into position to tag. They were thus able to hold off the big Suzuki vs. Nakajima confrontation until the end of the match, and they gave us a nice little taste of things to come before Suzuki predictably pinned Kajiwara. Nakajima stared Suzuki down after the match. Beyond the story, it was a good match because everyone was energetic and wrestling like they cared. It might not have been their best moves, but everyone was active and putting forth an effort at all times. ***

Atsushi Aoki vs. Yoshinari Ogawa 16:22. Good, focused technical wrestling match; one of those matches that's dated, but at the same time a refreshing change of pace. These two sometimes seem to exist outside the flow of your generic spot oriented tag match because they want to work body parts and do submissions, but against each other they can do their thing. In this case, Aoki worked the arm while Ogawa worked the left knee. I liked the start where Aoki jumped Ogawa, but Ogawa fled until he was able to stand his ground and clobber Aoki when Aoki followed him into the ring. The match wasn't stressful, but was generally pretty well thought out and executed, doing a great job of building to a submission finish. The problem is after Aoki's armbar failed, Ogawa did big damage by posting Aoki (but Ogawa is the one with the bad arm) then pinned him in his backdrop hold. So, in the end, while there were some nice counters, you really felt like all this focused body work was a great big nothing. The match was part of a series of singles matches to set up Marufuji & Aoki's GHC Junior Tag Title defense against Ogawa & Marvin on 3/5/11. Ogawa & Marvin won both pairings on 2/16/11, so this win established their dominance regardless of whether Marvin completed the sweep. **1/2

Naomichi Marufuji vs. Ricky Marvin 10:28. Ogawa stayed at ringside, but wasn't the least bit shady. In fact, he even alerted the ref to the fact Marufuji had rope escaped. They started fast, but ultimately did a little bit of everything and a lot of nothing. These two can work together, but it was just so short that they didn't know where to take things. Ultimately, it was quite a nice half a match, but you weren't convinced by it ending, nor by how it ended. I'd bank on these two in a long jr title match for sure, but this was really just a tease. **3/4

GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Title Match: Naomichi Marufuji & Atsushi Aoki vs. Yoshinari Ogawa & Ricky Marvin 23:51

GHC Junior Heavyweight Title Match: Kotaro Suzuki vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima 24:09. Nakajima has rarely ever let me down, but I was left scratching my head here. I really liked their 10/15/09 draw, which was a methodical match, but one that had a very strong storyline. This was just methodical. I never really had the sense that the match had any direction, or that it was flowing. Nakajima had a new look with ugly baggy workout pants, and was playing more of a heel role. Suzuki tried doing Nakajima's match, but Nakajima himself never seemed truly comfortable because he wasn't really doing Nakajima's match. The results were more miss than hit, but they have enough pure ability to overcome a lot. Nakajima dominated early, but Suzuki finally caught a kick and turned it into a Dragon screw. The knee never became a theme this time, in fact there really was no theme. It was more a Kensuke match where they just loaded up on hard hitting. There was a great very audible elbow exchange and an impressive duel of Kotaro's elbows against Nakajima's kicks. Nakajima hit some damn impressive thrust kicks to Kotaro's jaw, and Kotaro's elbows were great when they connected. The sequences weren't anything special though, and the timing or execution was capable of going off. I enjoyed the match, but I kept waiting for it to approach their capability, and for my money it never did. ***1/4

Jun Akiyama & Naomichi Marufuji vs. Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima 18:10

GHC Junior Heavyweight Title Match: Kotaro Suzuki vs. Taiji Ishimori 19:18. Really erratic and inconsistent match. They have some great spots that led to intermittent brilliance, but neither has any idea of how to utilize their moves and the match stagnated between their showing off. It started great with a damn fine Lucha opening including Kotaro turning a corbata into a headspring, but then they did lame WWE style weardown. Ishimori tried to exchange elbows, but Suzuki's were clearly better so he didn't try to strike with Suzuki anymore. The match was better anyway when Ishimori was turning a Tigerdriver into a huracanrana or hitting a reverse Frankensteiner or a "no touch" tope con hilo over the post, or any number of his spectacular signature moves. Suzuki's offense couldn't compare to Ishimori's highspots, but Ishimori's secondary offense isn't impressive at all. He either does something truly amazing or ridiculously pedestrian. Still, I feel like he provided most of the entertainment value. Suzuki is the more well rounded wrestler, but the problem is he's not solid and can't carry a match, so it was all pretty random and unfocused. I can't say it was better than the 3/5/11 Kotaro vs. Nakajima match, but probably the entire top 10 most impressive moments would be from this one. ***

GHC Junior Heavyweight Title Match: Kotaro Suzuki vs. Ricky Marvin 21:34. Finally a Kotaro title match where there's actually something going on. Marvin has always been considered a tag wrestler, and has been almost completely overlooked as a singles title challenger (he's been with NOAH since 2003 and this is just his 3rd challenge). He had a lot to prove here, and really delivered. The match was consistently good from start to finish, which none of the previous matches in this Kotaro reign can come close to saying, but what's more impressive is this occured more because Marvin was thinking than because he's work was excellent (though it was). The match was actually well structured and showed that Marvin can carry a singles match. They started off with some nice Lucha, but where the Ishimori defense then degenerated into lazy rest holds, Marvin immediately shifted the match to the body, attacking Kotaro's knee. The knee attack included a kneebreaker off the apron and wrapping Kotaro's knee in the guard rail and hitting a dropkick to it off the apron. Marvin was able to move in and out of the knee attack, really move on, without it feeling false or being a detriment to the match. He told a second story where he was able to remain in control by countering all the favorite moves of his former GHC Junior Tag Title holding partner. Suzuki tried his bit blaster, but Marvin hit a sliding dropkick. Suzuki tried a 619, but Marvin again dropkicked him. Suzuki got a measure of revenge stopping Marvin's tope with his shotei, but his advantage was short lived and Marvin hit a spectacular super quebrada over the guard rail. Suzuki almost came back countering Marvin's superplex, but reinjured his knee on the landing. There were some pretty sweet spots from the top rope in this one, including Marvin stopping an avalanche style move and hitting a reverse Frankensteiner off the 2nd and Marvin hitting an avalanche style Liger bomb. The match was nearly excellent, but I really disliked the whole lazy Misawa bend where Kotaro takes the entire match then hits a couple big elbows and the Tigerdriver for the win. I was really wishing that Marvin would have won by the end, but in any case he showed me a lot that I didn't know he was capable of. ***3/4

14th GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Title Decision Match: Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki vs. Yoshinobu Kanemaru & KENTA 28:13. These guys wrestled like they meant it from fron start to finish. An intense start pitting KENTA's kicks against Kotaro's elbows slowly segued into neckwork after Kotaro withstood a series of DDT's highlighted by Kanemaru diving off the top to deposit Suzuki's head on the apron. Though Aoki tried numerous armbars after making the hot tag, the pace not only managed to increase from here, but to continue to escalate for the remaining 2/3 of the match. Aoki, who certainly shows he belongs here, and Kanemaru are surely quite good when given the opportunity, including an impressive finishing run, but it's Kotaro who has ascended to the pinnacle of his craft this year with Marufuji constantly broken, and his ability to take up that mantle and shape KENTA's brutality and aggression into flowing wrestling sequences that makes not only this featured pairing, but even the match as a whole, rise well above the standard all out junior moves exhibition. ****

GHC Heavyweight Title Next Challenger Decision Match: Takeshi Morishima vs. Go Shiozaki 23:06. Although Morishima has toiled since his GHC Heavyweight Title run in 2008, Go beating him to earn his title shot was meaningful because he'd never done it before. Morishima had defeated Go in their first three meetings, and the last 2 had been draws. Unfortunately, this was wrestled like a draw. Morishima was kind of sluggish and seemed winded halfway through despite it being less than half the pace you'd associate with him, with Go was selling long the whole way while Morishima stood around. The offense was impressive for heavyweights, but it lacked the fire and emotion that should go along with such an important match. Everything was well done, but it wasn't really pulling me in. Morishima countered a few things early then Go hit them later, but the match wasn't really building, and the finish was a bit silly with Morishima kicking out of a surprising emerald flowsion only to immediately succumb to a lariat. ***

Though not quite as excellent as Kotaro's 1/29/11 defense against Eddie Edwards, the ROH wrestlers have clearly been Kotaro's best opponents during this reign, perhaps because they have the most to prove in Japan. Strong & Suzuki really developed the match, countering each other back and forth from the opening exchange of pinning predicaments until the finish. They worked really hard, wasting no time and were focused and consistent in their story telling. It was a brutal match with Kotaro really laying in with stomach elbows then working his offense around the injury including a gutbuster off the middle rope. Meanwhile, The Master/Messiah of the Backbreaker injured Suzuki's back with a side suplex on the apron and unleashed everything in his sizeable arsenal arsenal including a side suplex on the top turnbuckle. The match was fast and intense, just going back and forth with nifty evasions and brutal shots and breakers. If there was a flaw, it's that it was so good so fast that they kind of didn't have anything better for the climax so it felt as though it just ended. ****

Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki & Taiji Ishimori vs. Yoshinobu Kanemaru & KENTA & Genba Hirayanagi 20:54. I know this is a small warehouse, but this didn't feel like a main event. They meandered through the first half doing slow paced and methodical wrestling that wasn't exactly junior style. It was worthwhile when they worked over Kotaro's back, which was bandaged from his excellent title defense against Roderick Strong on 6/26/11. Kotaro vs. Kanemaru was the strongest and most consistent pairing, setting up their junior title match on 7/10/11, but as much of it happened early on with Kotaro getting to be the main seller for his team, it didn't exactly reach the heights they are capable of. KENTA was quality, but was basically going through the motions and getting by on talent alone. Ishimori (and Marvin), you can always count on for an effort, but Ishimori logged the least ring time for his team, although it was pretty much all in the 2nd half when they realized they were juniors, and his offense went along way toward making the match. Aoki was a total non factor, and the less said about Genba, whose big offense was the kiss, the better. **3/4

Takuma Sano & Taiji Ishimori & Atsushi Aoki vs. Yoshihiro Takayama & KENTA & Genba Hirayanagi 13:40

Jun Akiyama vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima 10:35. If you are excited by one of the best workers of the past half decade playing jobber to a guy who has had sporadic moments of interest, effort, and enthusiams since 1998 then this is the match for you. I didn't expect a ton from this match, but given Nakajima lasted close to 20 minutes in their previous outing on 7/5/08, I expected him to have progressed to something beyond 10 minutes and never even being competitive after the first by 2011. Nakajima blitzed Akiyama while he was entering and had a big run of his blistering kicks until Akiyama turned the match, essentially for good, by stopping a pescado with something that was supposed to be a kick or a knee but may not have connected. Nakajima got 3 or 4 moves in the rest of the one-sided sprint. For some reason the fans were actually into it. Granted, the quality of the work was pretty high, and it was somewhat exciting if you were under the impression Nakajima was going to withstand Akiyama's lengthy assault and actually, um, do something, but ultimately it was just a waste of talent. **1/4

Takeshi Morishima vs. Kensuke Sasaki 14:32. The lifetime series was tied at 1-1-1 with Morishima winning the previous contest, so you knew Sasaki was going over here. Sasaki gave one of his better and more considerate performances of the year though, making sure Morishima was at least in his comfort zone and looked good throughout this offense oriented sprint. There was some of Sasaki's brutality, but both were more focused on emptying their arsenal. It was a brutal and exciting heavyweight match that was impressively fought at more of a junior pace despite their size. There wasn't much in the way of selling, but it was excellent spectacle. It wasn't nearly as long as their previous best match, 9/6/08 where Sasaki wins the title at Budokan, so it lost something. However, it was the same style and somehow more successful because Sasaki executed his high spots in a lot more coordinated manner, so they were truly able to impress with their combination of power and pace. ***1/2

GHC Junior Heavyweight Title Match: Kotaro Suzuki vs. Yoshinobu Kanemaru 18:32. A more mature match that looked and felt different than their previous ones. It had a strong storyline of Kanemaru working the back, cutting off Suzuki's comebacks by abusing the back, which ultimately forced Kotaro to counter a back move to get his offense in. They showed good patience here, not that it wasn't an exciting match but the match never felt forced or formuliac, it didn't have that we are just getting our moves in feel. It was mainly Kanemaru making the match, but both men were quite good. Kanemaru was dominant, but it didn't feel like that was because NOAH spent the 2000's inexplicably booking him as if he were 1990's Jushin Thunder Liger minus the losses, or because he was the challenger who was jobbing, it was all about the back because they established the back right away with Kanemaru taking it to the floor and whipping Kotaro into the guard rail, suplexing him on the concrete then slamming him off the apron. From there he'd cut Suzuki off with a superplex or turn a dropkick into a Boston crab, and it wasn't until Suzuki shifted his weight on a superplex that he got it going. Suzuki didn't have quantity on offense, and generally the match was less spectacular than expected, but he had enough quality that it didn't seem like they went home too soon. ***3/4

GHC Heavyweight Title Match: Takashi Sugiura vs. Go Shiozaki 29:48. This was pretty sick. You don't want to wrestling Sugiura when he's in the mood to make Kensuke Sasaki look like a pansy. They did an insanely brutal, fiercely intense match from start to finish. Sugiura was thriving on the barbarity, pretty much wanted Shiozaki to fire back harder so he could hit him even harder than that. Shiozaki may be a chop master, but eventually he had to concede that standing toe to toe with Sugiura was a losing battle. Changing the style wasn't as easy as it sounded, but he faired a lot better when he used his suplexes and bombs and used his quickness and athleticism. Sugiura stopped his early tope with a wicked elbow to the mouth, but Go finally turned the match by suplexing Sugiura over the top rope onto the apron. Still, Sugiura was just a bull, and when Sugiura wasn't standing there beating him down, he threw his body around pretty well, just charging and burying a knee or shoulder. It was generally a pretty big beatdown for Shiozaki even though the entire match was built around exchanges (which finally ended when he went down), and it was pretty much willpower alone that allowed him to not only survive but somehow regain the title. ****

5th NTV G+ Cup B Block: Ricky Marvin & Rocky Marvin vs. Atsushi Kotoge & Daisuke Harada 13:45. Rocky was a nice addition. He heeled it up more than Ricky, but was certainly skilled and motivated, which is exactly what NOAH needs more of. The match was mainly a showcase for Kotoge & Harada, so the Marvins took a back seat offensively and concentrated on setting them up. It got off to a big start with dives, intense striking, and as it was short continued at a high level throughout. The teamwork of both teams was excellent, with everything being nicely choreographed and well timed. Kotoge is more athletic and showy than Harada, so he was most at home in this faster paced and highlight oriented match. He may be the first guy I've seen finish a tope con hilo by sitting on the guard rail and more or less posing. ***1/2

5th NTV G+ Cup A Block: Yoshinobu Kanemaru & KENTA vs. Tatsuhito Takaiwa & Osamu Namiguchi 15:09. I couldn't believe how one-sided this was. I mean, you knew Namiguchi wasn't going to be allowed to do much and was doing the job, but even Takaiwa wasn't competitive. That pretty much killed the match because Kanemaru & KENTA didn't have to work with Takaiwa & Namiguchi since they weren't getting any offense in, and they didn't have to work hard because they weren't really in a match. So basically you had Kanemaru & KENTA on cruise control going through their strikes and high spots. It wasn't poorly done, but there's a certain laziness to this sort of match, and certainly a lack of drama. **1/2

5th NTV G+ Cup B Block: Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima & Satoshi Kajiwara 18:50. A little better than expected due to Kajiwara improving to the point he could carry the early portion. The first half was pretty much Aoki taking Kajiwara's junior style offense. Aoki ran around or whipped Kajiwara into the ropes to facilitate the action, but had no real offense of his own beyond striking. Nakajima made some nice contributions, and the timing was on with neat little spots such as Nakajima leapfrogging Aoki's kneecap dropkick. The second half eventually featured the pairing everyone wanted to see, Nakajima vs. Suzuki, and it was the same sort of spectacle they displayed in their title match on 3/5/11. Suzuki had taken the first half off almost entirely, but had all the offense for his team, using some of his biggest moves on Nakajima, who came right back with his powerful kicks. Beyond the effort, what this match had that the Kanemaru & KENTA win didn't was a sense of urgency, a meaningfulness to the victory, especially with Suzuki vs. Nakajima because scoring the win over your rival meant that much more. ***1/4
