This week on Wrestling Omakase we talk an eclectic mix of wrestling. I’m joined by returning guest and my longtime wrestling travel companion Bryan Quinlan (@IMNOTQUINLAN) as we start in the land of World Wrestling Entertainment, breaking down a pretty decent Fastlane show and some of the more confusing aspects of the Wrestlemania build-up. Once that’s out of the way we turn back to the New Japan Cup to cover nights 4-7, featuring an impassioned defense of SANADA (who took a verbal beatdown recently from a sister VOW network podcast), mixed thoughts on an Ospreay-Archer match everyone else seemed to love, lots of love for Ishii-Taichi and Tanahashi-Taguchi, and being slightly disappointed by a still great Ibushi-ZSJ match. Finally we wrap things up with thoughts on a recent match from STARDOM, Momo Watanabe vs. Jungle Kyona from about two weeks ago in Nagoya. All this and more, this week!
