2016 Indie Puro Match Recommendations: October

It’s time for the second month of these recommendations. Overall it wasn’t as strong as September was in the match quality but there were numerous bangers. Lots of good stuff from the guys you’d expect and some matches that took me by surprise which landed them on this list. If you didn’t read the September edition, I will explain how this list works. Very good matches are ***1/2, great matches are ***3/4 and excellent is **** +. These are the best matches of Japan for the month minus New Japan of course.
