This week on Wrestling Omakase we’ve got a wide variety of Japanese wrestling to talk about, both men’s and women’s! John is joined by returning guest Taylor to break down five full shows. First they discuss Dragon Gate’s latest big show from Tokyo’s Ota Ward Gym, Dangerous Gate, a bit of a mixed bag of the show and John’s return to DG after quite a while away. What was the highlight of the show, and what matches didn’t quite work as well? Then it’s time to discuss two Korakuen Hall shows from the DDT family, both on 8/25: Tokyo Joshi’s BRAND NEW WRESTLING 3 with a big tag title match main event, a wild brawl featuring Su Yung and Yuka Sakazaki, and much more, and DDT’s Summer Vacation Memories, with a ladder match for the Extreme Title, SANTINO MARELLA, and more. Plus we discuss the breaking news that All Elite Wrestling’s Kenny Omega will be returning to DDT after five years at Sumo Hall in November. Our last shows are the first two nights of STARDOM’s 5STAR GP from Shin Kiba 1st Ring featuring a lot of very good but short matches and a couple very strong main events. Finally we wrap things up with your questions on all of the promotions just listed. A fun trip all around Japan, this week!
