NOAH 04/02/2005 April 2nd 2005
[G266]

Date Added: Wednesday 19 October, 2016

This is probably one of the most slept on DVDs in Noah's golden period. There are four matches and each is worth watching.

First, we get Miaswa, Kobashi & Akiyama vs Marufuji, KENTA & Hashi. This was a very intense mentor vs pupil match where even Hashi was electric in his performance. A highly recommended and perhaps great match.

Next, is Ricky Marvin vs Kotaro Suzuki in his Tiger Emperor gimmick. I'm not sure where the masked persona came from but, Noah liked to throw gimmicks on him so, I would not be surprised if it was for just this hair vs mask apuesta match. The highspots remain amazing even a decade or so later. The first watch is really something and I would highly recommend this. It goes a little long on a rewatch but remains fun stuff.

So part 2 starts with Kobashi, KENTA, and Marvin vs Misawa, Kanemaru, and Sugiura. There were terrific exchanges with every pairing and the outcome was always in doubt. Fans of 6 man matches will need to see this match. I thought it was great!

Finally, we have Akiyama vs Hashi. This is unlisted but, is on the DVD. It is a continuation of Akiyama toughening Hashi up. This is Hashi at his peak, if there is such a thing. More importantly it shows Jun as a generous and smart vet wrestler in the vein of later Tenryu. A nice way to wrap up the DVD as it calls back to the first match of the disc.

For the cost, I would say this is a must get item for someone into early Noah, or even someone just getting into puro. It's exciting, believable, and tells a simple but effective story all in 1 disc. Great stuff!

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
