This week on Wrestling Omakase it’s time to talk three gigantic Japanese wrestling shows! John is joined by returning guests Taylor (@tamaimbo), Thomas (@rasslinratings) and Jack (@packerman120) to break down all the shows from this past weekend. We start with New Japan’s Power Struggle show from Osaka, as we talk all the major matches and angles on the last major show before Wrestle Kingdom. We discuss a somewhat controversial final segment setting up the double title match, Hiromu Takahashi’s incredible return, BUSHI and Will Ospreay putting on a banger, the finals of the Super Junior Tag League, another awesome Naito-Taichi match and more! We wrap up New Japan talk with a quick look ahead to their next US show in San Jose as well as the new matches booked for both nights at the Tokyo Dome.
Then we head over to the Dramatic Dream Team for a long review of their gigantic Ultimate Party show from Sumo Hall! We talk all fourteen (!) matches from an incredible card, including a great Ironman Heavymetalweight battle royale, some very cool undercard sprints, the Tokyo Joshi girls stealing the show, ANTONIO HONDA SILENCING THE HATERS (and that Kenny Omega guy actually looking alive again), HARASHIMA rising up for olds everywhere and much more. Finally we wrap things up with a shorter review of BJW Ryogokutan, a more mixed bag of a show that still featured a ***** match (in two of our opinions)! Hear about the many ups and downs of the final Sumo Hall show of the weekend! A packed show full of puro goodness, this week!
