Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Very good K Hall show today. Chris Charlton on the English commentary adds so much for me and i hope we see/hear more from him in 2019. There were two new Young Lions at ringside and i think they are from Fale's dojo. https://itelemaluwritings.com/2018/09/12/fales-pride-young-lions-join-njpw-dojo/ A...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

the two K Hall shows were very good but the team Okada/Tana v Bullet Club main events didn't quite reach the level i had expected. The third of the matches (2nd Dec main event) was stellar and should be essential viewing from this tour.

So Excalibur will doing commentary with Kevin Kelly the last 3 nights of the WTL
wonderful news! Excalibur would be an excellent addition to the English language team.
I really like that New Japan are trying out different options and with their base in LA this one makes particular sense.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The WTL is plodding along in it's usual way but today's show had a match worth going out of your way to watch in Zack Sabre jr & TaiChi v Sanada & EVIL. Plenty of heat between ZSj & E and a nice pace throughout. I'm really enjoying this Suzuki Goon (odd) coupling. I think perhaps the targeted limb w...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Night One was a solid show with the welcome return of quality English commentary. With the length of the tour ahead everyone was being quite sensible (apart from Adam Page who took a disgusting bump to the outside late in his match). I particularly enjoyed ZSj's interactions with Narita as the young...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm not feeling much excitement for the Tag League but with the abundance of shows there will no doubt be some good stuff to pick through. In particular Tana and Okada tagging and seeing how that develops. I see a number of the recent ROH Global Wars matches have uploaded on to new japan world and i...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I thought the jr tag league was good. Considering i was sort of dreading it what with no Hiromu, Marty, Ospreay and events seeming to work against it. Team CMLL were poor and i could have done without their involvement. They didn't seem to have very good decision making with respect to what works in...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

don't skip the chaos v BCOGs multiman on today's show. A fantastic match which told so many stories and had a molten hot KH crowd. Can't remember a match i've enjoyed more this year.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Some really great marque matches there and also some good stuff on the 'road to' shows and Destruction undercards. Ayato Yoshida returns for multiple shows which is interesting and i guess they must see a lot in him. He's got a few singles matches (as has Henare) on the televised shows. Beretta, Chu...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I do not exchange one box of elgin against two of evil, by example. I might be misunderstanding you but do you think Elgin is twice as valuable to New Japan as EVIL? Wow no i would not give my own tastes so much power ;) just sayin i prefer by far elgin to evil. :) I was considering the value of th...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The two recent UK shows have been uploaded to NJPWworld. Having Kevin Kelly on commentary is a massive step up from other REVPro footage they uploaded previously but the audio levels aren't best. Oka excursion gimmick is pretty over the top but i think learning how to get the most it will be a great...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Honma's return match has been uploaded to world and it's not only an emotional watch but a particularly well worked match. The post match stuff is on the New japan Youtube channel with English subtitles and that is equally heart warming. Really interested to see how Honma is going to be booked from ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Is it just me or has the quality of the Young Lions' matches fallen away since the turn of the year? I know we lost Kawato San to excursion and Kitamura to injury or firing or some other third thing but the recent Lions Project shows haven't done much for me. Umino can be the sole reason to watch t...
