This week on Wrestling Omakase it’s one promotion we discuss a lot and one promotion we haven’t talked about in a long time, as we cover NJPW and AEW’s recent big shows!

The Wrestling Omakase Patreon is your best source for coverage of Japanese wrestling, from yesterday and today. Going on right now is our exclusive daily coverage of the New Japan Cup, as John is up on the Patreon each and every day breaking down all the tournament matches! Follow along with our in-depth match breakdowns and reviews, pick ’em updates on what people predicted beforehand versus what actually happened, plus notes from the undercards that you’re probably skipping! Plus, you always get instant access to all of our archived content, including our many 1 Match episodes covering everything from Omakase patron requests, Tokyo Dome main events and famous rivalries, our exclusive Retro Roulette & 5 Matches episodes, ANIME OMAKASE, and more! You can get all of this right now for only $5 at

John is joined by returning guest Chris Samsa (@TheChrisSamsa) from Sport of Pro Wrestling for a packed show. They start out discussing adventures in vaccinations and more before getting into some macro thoughts on AEW, discourse, differences between wrestling promotions and how they’re covered and a lot more. They then head over to New Japan for full reviews of the March 4th Anniversary Show headlined by Kota Ibushi vs. El Desperado (including lots of thoughts on the very controversial topic of title unification) and the March 7th New Japan Cup show, along with some brief thoughts on other Cup matches so far (head to the Patreon for full reviews!).

Once they’re done with New Japan they head back to AEW for a full review of the Revolution PPV, breaking down every match from the main show in detail. They discuss spots that worked and didn’t work, hilarious misfires (and not just the one at the end of the main event!), way too much interference, why AEW works better as a TV product than a supercard one in general, and a whole lot more.
