2010 Recommended Puroresu Matches

So are you just getting into Japanese Pro Wrestling and you have no idea where to start? Well I am compiling that matches of 2010 that I thought are definitely worth checking out.

If you have seen any of my past reviews, well I have altered the rating scale since then to the current scale I am using now.

My current version, and hopefully last version, of the rating scale is based on a grade point average, no matches are compared to those that happened before, but more of what I have just witnessed in the ring. Every 20% can be considered a star in normal sense, if you wish to look at it that way. So in a loose sense 20%= 1 *, 40= 2**, 60%= 3***, 80%=****, 100%=5****

I, Charles Schaeffer, am joined by Sean Carleton, Joshua Shibata and Hanan Kat in putting these matches on the list, if you see something that is not on the list, but you think it is definitely worth a view, please post it below in a comment and we will put it in consideration.
