This week on Wrestling Omakase John is joined by returning guest Aaron Bentley from VOW podcast Everything Elite to talk an eclectic mix of topics! We start things out with some general talk on AEW and how both NJPW and ROH have dealt with the aftermath of the Elite leaving before turning our attention to STARDOM’s 5/16 Korakuen Hall show. As a gigantic Momo Watanabe fan there’s no one better suited to help us eulogize her amazing Wonder of STARDOM title reign, so we talk both her latest match with Arisa Hoshiki as well as her reign in general. We also talk some of the undercard matches and promising young talent in STARDOM as well. Then we talk New Japan, namely the first six nights of the Best of the Super Juniors, with praise for some wrestlers and some vitriol for others. Finally, we wrap things up with AEW talking the future of the promotion in general and a quick preview of the Double or Nothing card, as well as thoughts on the big story from the past week, PAC-GATE. All this plus your mailbag questions on all of these topics and also Tokyo Joshi Pro and more, this week!
