Naito's road to winning at the Tokyo Dome is probably the greatest story told in the medium of wrestling.

>Match ends
>Before he can even recover his composure he roughly grabs Okada's hair
>Won't let go as the ref is trying to pull him off
>Ref gives up, realizing he's not trying to hurt him
>the camera zooms in on his hand as Naito slowly, hesitantly, and finally is able to let go

Peak kino.

Besides Dunn just being retarded, I think this can be partially chalked up to how big monitors are now. Back in the day, you could have a wrestler and a square CRT comfortably in the same shot without a stupid viewing angle. With the bigger flatscreens, it's harder. Still, Dunn could also not be fucking retarded about these shots and the "mid-video cut to the crowd watching the video" shit.

When did this shit start?

Around 2009 or 2010, a lot of shit became overproduced then too. Thats when scripts got super heavy and strict, people would post for 10 seconds in a locker room before someone approached in a backstage segment and all that stuff.

There's got to be a better way though, like picture in picture so we can still see the match. Commentary always goes "There's [wrestler] keeping an eye on this match!" anyways so we know what they're doing.

clearly, Tanahashi is the false prophet that has blinded the masses with garish costumes and lightshows, while the stoic yet honorable and humble Shibata is there fighting for the honor of the sport that was defiled by Tanahashi

on another note, Shibata would've made a great member of Ringkampf

yeah iirc Texano jr grabs some little shit dog from somebody in the front row, throws it at Psycho Clown, then straight out of Kinnikuman since Psycho is a face he has to rescue the poor dog, which then leaves him open for Texano to kick him in the shin

I want to say it might have been that outdoor show AAA Sin Límite - Reynosa - Lucha Libre AAA - Marzo 2015 which also had this great scene of a storm behind Murder Clown
