Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The director of USA operations says there will be a major announcement made at Power Struggle. Any guesses?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

NJPW one-upping in itself in "we have a gigantic roster" with a five trio gauntlet match for the NEVER 6-mans at Dominion.

SANADA/EVIL/BUSHI defend against Taguchi Japan (Taguchi/Juice/Ricochet), CHAOS (Ishii/Yano/YOSHI-HASHI), SZKG (ZSJ/Kanemaru/Taichi), Bullet Club (Yujiro/Hangman Page/Fale).

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The Junior has gone over the NEVER strap at least twice recently that I can think of; Destruction in Tokyo and NB in Osaka this year. Given Osaka is LIJ-country, they'd be best placing those guys in very high positions. Though, I wonder who will face the NEVER Trios champs. I doubt it'd be Taguchi ...

Re: Ryogoku Sumo Hall Seating Chart

Googled "Sumo Hall Seating Chart." Hope it helps. 2F Special is probably one of the first six rows on the second floor.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

As of next weekend, NJPW's World Pro-Wrestling TV highlights show in Japan is being moved back an hour to 2am on Sundays and doubled to 60 minutes long, the same length as in their prime but not at 9pm on Friday nights like they had in the '80s and early '90s. A good victory of NJPW, but there's sti...

Re: VOW Flagship: Ring of Honor 15th Anniversary, Ishii/Omega, Wrestle-1 & more!

Disagree on the minor stuff "doesn't matter" stuff with regard to Gedo's often questionable booking of undercard things. A truly elite booker makes everything as good as it can be because everything matters. I don't watch Dragon Gate, but I've heard that the person who books it is pretty much Japan'...

Kenny vs Tanahashi sold out on the day of the show, though at higher ticket prices than the Cup final.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

NJPW uploaded all of Tiger Mask W's NJPW bouts (yes, all 2 of them) to their YouTube, in both Japanese and English commentary. It's labeled NJPW Free Match and the video description says "More amazing matches from the NJPW archives coming soon FREE on njpwworld.com every week!" https://www.youtube.c...

Re: VOW Flagship: Elimination Chamber, Deserving Titles, New Beginning & more!

Slight correction: The New Beginning in Sapporo did not sell out/fill the building.

Notice the few excessive sections of tarping on the upper levels near the stage.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Didn't he help with the Dome preshow on Periscope? I don't recall that. I know he was at the festival with his kid the day before and the commentary guys just happened to cross paths with him while they were doing the Periscope, but nothing like that. You made it sound like he was on payroll or som...
