Seen this match before but pretty freaking cool to own this on a DVD set. Jun Kasai, you are INSANE 😈 #prowrestling #prowrestlingfan #japanesewrestling #deathmatchwrestling #junkasai #crazymonkey #bigjapanprowrestling #jakinumazawa #barbedwireboard #razorbladecross
I don’t have a lot of information about this match. It was in the depths of YouTube and appears to be at Toryumon Japan. If I had to guess, based on the names, this was the finals of the NWA World Middleweight Title Tournament which was between Magnum TOKYO and SASUKE (The Great Sasuke) Pretty fun match, took place around 1999, lots of fun technical exchanges along with some high flying as was typical for students of Ultimo Dragon and Sasuke. If you’re not aware of Magnum Tokyo, check him out, a real lost gem of a talent during the early Dragon Gate/Toryumon days. ————————————————————————- #MagnumTokyo #Tokyo #MrEgoist #TheGreatSasuke #GreatSasuke #Sasuke #SasukeSpecial #Toryumon #ToryumonJapan #ToryumonGym #UltimoDragon #DragonGate #DGPro #DG #japanesewrestling #japaneselegend #indywrestling #independentwrestling #supportindywrestling #wrestling #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre #kingsroad
Masato Tanaka vs. Mike Awesome Literally some of the wildest matches I've ever seen in my life. Hard-hitting, fast paced, exciting, brutal, with each wrestler usually taking several psychotic bumps per match. I love their feud and how it's gone through multiple promotions & countries. Are there any other collections of matches quite like these? Any feuds between two wrestlers that I should check out that can compare to the insanity that these two displayed? Let me know! #ecw #extremechampionshipwrestling #wwe #fmw #tna #mikeawesome #masatotanaka #aiw #war #wrestling #japanesewrestling #puroresu #indywrestling #hardcore #hardcorewrestling #extremewrestling

#Repost @_sasukespecial_ (@get_repost ) ・・・ #SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 7: Tomohiro Ishii vs Kota Ibushi at NJPW’s G1 Climax 28, Day 10 Easily the best match of the G1 Climax for me, these two brought it like I hoped they would. Absolutely brilliant no selling and stuff striking along with each men’s unique factor they brought into the match. Ishii can’t seem to go a singles match without stealing the show or close to it. Ibushi had a stellar G1 as well, much better than his previous showings and Ishii got whatever he was lacking out of him in this match. Fantastic match, both guys are crazy good, check it out. ————————————————————- #TomohiroIshii #Ishii #StonePitbull #141 #KotaIbushi #Ibushi #GoldenStar #GoldenLovers #Choas #TheElite #NJPW #newjapan #newjapanprowrestling #g1climax #g1climax28 #japanesewrestling #japaneselegend #wrestling #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre

Kazusada Higuchi has been trying to display his place as DDT’s Big Man ace but Shuji Ishikawa has other ideas.

i like how each of both Jericho & Naito ‘s characters opposes each other and they are showcasing it all on this segment 😂😂 “Jericho-saaaan, TURANQUIRO!”
There's something unique about old-school Japanese deathmatch wrestling. The crazy gimmicks, the violence, the lo-fi aesthetic of cameras in the 90s. I love it. All of it. From the good to the bad, and I wouldn't have it any other way. . . . . . #fmw #iwa #bjpw #pool #deathmatchwrestling #deathmatch #90s #puroresu #hayabusa #mikeawesome #onita #ecw #deathmatches #aesthetic #vintage #violence #wrestling #japanesewrestling
#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 1: Katsuhiko Nakajima vs Takashi Sugiura for the GHC Heavyweight Championship at the GHC Global Junior League, October 4th, 2018 Well. This is it. Noah took back its top spot this year, out pacing NJPW for me. Their Global League was consistently fantastic, and every title defense was better than the last. Sugiura gave us the performance of a lifetime at age 48 and just returning from heart surgery a year prior to this match. He’s my wrestler of the year for sure. Nakajima on the other hand completely reinvented himself in a YAMATO like character with a more sadistic edge. This match was the two rivals giving it all they had. Nothing topped this match for me. The intensity, drama, striking, technicality and brutality. None of these things could possibly come close to me. Please go check this match. If you only watch one match from this list, make it this one. Have a great new year, cause it’s been a great one for wrestling. ————————————————————————- #TakashiSugiura #Sugiura #KillingMachine #KatsuhikoNakajima #Nakajima #TheAggression #GeniusOfTheKick #ProWrestlingNoah #NoahTheReborn #NoahTheLive #NoahGHC #GHC #GlobalHonoredCrown #japanesewrestling #japaneselegend #wrestling #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #indywrestling #independentwrestling #supportindywrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre #kingsroad
#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 2: Isami Kodaka vs Masashi Takeda for the BJW Deathmatch Heavyweight Championship in a Giga Ladder, Light Tubes and Glass Board deathmatch 6/20/2018 This match was as close to violent poetry in motion as we’ll ever get to. The absolute best deathmatch of the year from two of the best deathmatch wrestlers. Masashi Takeda, the new age Jun Kasai prodigy facing off against The Deathmatch Samurai, Isami Kodaka. Both men are incredibly technically proficient as well as violent and tough. Their MMA experience brings another new element as the two of them knock each other silly with strikes. This match was quite possibly the best deathmatch I’ve ever seen, and even if you’re not a fan, please go watch this match, you might understand afterwards.

361/365 Daisuke Sekimoto Great year for this man. Mainly because of the critical acclaim his match with Tyler Bate un Fight Club Pro. Also he's going to WXW for 16 Carat Golf next year, so i think we will still hearing about Daisuke Sekimoto for a while. Maybe we'll see him back in a mainstream company. #daisukesekimoto #daisuke #sekimoto #bigjapan #bjpw #ajpw #alljapanprowrestling #ddtpro #ddt #japanesewrestling #puroresu #strongstyle #fightclubpro #kaientai #prowrestlingnoah #noah #wxw #westsidextremewrestling #16caratgold #indiewrestling #independentwrestling
ATTENTION : These images ain’t for the faint of heart! # Toshiyuki Sakuda vs Kenji Fukimoto 2/2. This was one of the sickest death match spectacles I’ve seen. On any other show it would he the most memorable match on the card, but not at Blood Christmas! Still this skewer spot came in a close second as the most memorable take away image from the show. Having attended a fair few underground art shows involving suspension performances and other forms of body modification very little shocks me, but when you’re seeing this kind of stuff live, mere metres from you with the whole audience shrieking and gasping at every moment, there is a primitive primal adrenaline rush that kicks in that is super exciting. Grotesque. But super exciting.
this is the match that is most anticipated by me out of any other matches on the WK card. besides how i’m sure these 2 are going to pull out a certified banger, the hype for the main event just didnt really get to me. (credit : @dbz_exclusives )

#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 3: Kzy vs Masaaki Mochizuki for the Open the Dream Gate Title at Kotoka Road to Final 2018 Dragon Gate had a pretty stellar year, and I’m sure it’s a little controversial that I’ve placed Kzy’s performance over that of Ben-K’s but I have my reasons. Mochizuki winning the title from YAMATO late in 2017 was a huge shock, YAMATO was on a roll, and Mochizuki, while still great was nearly 50. His defenses had been great, both Saito and Susumu’s matches were good but at no point did I really think they would best Mochi. Kzy on the other hand, was an up and comer who had been using a very tired gimmick for a while but recently revitalized it and beaten and pinned Mochizuki twice before this match. So it was set, Mochizuki would drop the title to Kzy. No. The match was frantic although it was a 20+ long match, Kzy tried to match the striking of Mochi with his own uppercuts but eventually the experience of Masaaki pulled through in an incredible win and an incredible match. Go check it out on DGnetwork. ————————————————————————- #MasaakiMochizuki #Mochizuki #SoulOfTheKingOfTheKicker #Kzy #BBoy4life #openthedreamgate #dg #dragongate #dgpro #japanesewrestling #indywrestling #independentwrestling #supportindywrestling #japaneselegend #wrestling #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre
360/365 Jushin Thunder Liger Legend isn't enough. Been watching Jushin Liger for so many years that it feels even weird to think how good he still is today. He's 54 but he moves the same as he did in 1995. One of the most influential wrestlers ever, defining the cruiserweight/junior style that is so popular today. And his theme song is fucking great. #jushinthunderliger #jushinliger #thunder #jushin #liger #njpw #ajpw #prowrestlingnoah #pwg #nxt #nxttakeover #ddtpro #michinokupro #japanesewrestling #puroresu #strongstyle #iwgp #juniordivision #juniorheavyweight #bestofthesuperjuniors #g1climax #tna #totalnontstopaction #indiewrestling #independentwrestling #wcw #nitro #worldchampionshipwrestling

#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 9: Minoru Suzuki vs Hirooki Goto in a Hair vs Hair match at NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 12. I’ll be perfectly honest with you. Looking back at it, Wrestle Kingdom 12 was pretty disappointing. Was it still a fantastic show? Yes. It was no Wrestle Kingdom 11 or Wrestle Kingdom 10 though. Thought the surprising chemistry between Minoru Suzuki and Hirooki Goto led to my Match of the Night for Wrestle Kingdom 12. Incredibly stiff, back and forth bout, Suzuki was in prime form and Hirooki Goto transforms into different styles so effortlessly between everybody. What really sold me was the ending, I never, in a million years, thought Suzuki would shave his head. But it happened and it happened in the best way possible. Wonderful match, not even my favorite match from NJPW yet though... ————————————————————- #MinoruSuzuki #Suzuki #Pancrase #KazeNiNare #SuzukiGun #HirookiGoto #Goto #Aramushi #NJPW #newjapan #newjapanprowrestling #japanesewrestling #japaneselegend #mma #indywrestling #independentwrestling #supportindywrestling #wrestling #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre

#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 36: Konosuke Takeshita vs HARASHIMA at the DDT Grand Prix 2018 in Nerima. If anyone has seen the classic these two put on last year, they know this is going to be a fantastic match. This match has a major difference though, while their first match was a well paced story driven classic, this match was a frantic, limb targeted 15 minute scramble. HARASHIMA is basically DDT’s Tanahashi, and Takeshita is their Okada. He’s young, fresh, deceptively strong and very over with the fans. While HARASHIMA is a wily veteran who can take it to the best of them, and while he’s a fan favorite, he isn’t afraid to show a darker side. The match is great and really stood out among a stellar series of matches including Ishikawa vs Sakiguchi and Endo vs Kuroshio. Great match, just another reason to watch DDT. ————————————————————- #KonosukeTakeshita #Takeshita #TheFuture #HARASHIMA #Samato #DDT #DDTGrandPrix #DDTPro #DramaticDreamTeam #japanesewrestling #japaneselegend #indywrestling #supportindywrestling #independentwrestling #wrestling #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre

#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 28: PAC vs Masato Yoshino for the Open The Dream Gate Championship at Fantastic Gate 2018. One of the most recent entries on the list, this match had one unique purpose, show us that PAC is back. Yes he already had a singles match against Flamita and although that was good, this match was great. Yoshino is among the most consistent guys in Dragon Gate today and putting him in the ring with a work horse like PAC could only lead to good things. A super fast paced match with some fantastic heel work from the Bastard, this match didn’t really seem to let up until the bell rang. Great match, I wish I had some footage to show you from it but, all the video I could rip either have awful music or a massive watermark.

#SasukeSpecialsMatchesOfTheYear ***** Number 25: Konosuke Takeshita vs Shuji Ishikawa for the KO-D Openweight Championship at DDT Judgement 2018. Ishikawa put on several insane matches this year and this one is among my favorites as he tried to take the KO-D Openweight Championship from the young but extremely talented Konosuke Takeshita. Everyone who thinks DDT is just comedy or can’t watch it because of the other stuff should seek out this match and the others I’ve mentioned on the list. It’s easy to avoid the stuff you don’t like and appreciate the stuff that is truly great and this match certainly is. ————————————————————- #ShujiIshikawa #Ishikawa #IndieBigDog #KonosukeTakeshita #Takeshita #TheFuture #DDT #dramaticdreamteam #ddtpro #japanesewrestling #japaneselegend #indywrestling #independentwrestling #puro #puroresu #strongstyle #lucha #luchalibre #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #wrestling
