Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Gonna call my shot. I think Okada wins this and the swerve of it is after Naito has proclaimed being double champion as his goal all year Okada uses the G1 victory so he can try to be double champion and they get to the same destination just using the opposite route.

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Climax Blocks, WWE Stomping Grounds & NOAH

I am 100% convinced Ospreay is beating Okada. Their next big show after G1 is Royal Quest in London. Okada is defending the title there. He is the block with 2 Brits. The Sabre match is a 3rd from the top in Ota. The Ospreay match is the main event in Korakuen Hall which is the building that gets th...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

I have a question about the tv deal that has yet to materialize. WWE and mega corporation NBC/Universal spent years of PR work to make WWE seem like a good place for high dollar advertisers which in some way sorta justifies the tv contracts they got. But again it can not be understated the amount of...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I don't know man. The Roman/Dave thing seems odd to me. Dave in his weird Dave way is really just saying that what Roman had sounded scarier than it actually was. I'm not an oncologist, but the fact that Roman went through a cycle of prescription medication and was fine in what could really be measu...

Re: Over The Top Wrestling - Ireland's #1!

I think it was the Meltzer said what account on twitter that said indie fans better start getting used to 1980s WWF house show finishes real quick. And he's right. With everyone on these shows either signed up to WWE UK or AEW or the NJPW/ROH alliance you are not getting guys laying down for a compe...

Re: VOW Flagship: AEW, Jay White, PAC vs. Kzy, EVOLVE & more!

Were people saying it was medium effort PAC in the match vs Ospreay because I just watched it and the match ruled?

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I may be reading too much into this, but Dave's, let's be nice and say, subdued reaction to Kota Ibushi signing full time with NJPW over AEW might be an indication of where the coverage of those two promotions may be headed.

Re: VOW Flagship (2/7): Call for Questions

I know people have been waiting for New Japan to shiv ROH in the back for years now, but with AEW now working with AAA and no one ever considering that possibility between NJPW and CMLL can we now put to bed any notion of New Japan working with AEW?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Naito has stated his goal is be dual champion. On twitter Chris Charlton posted a Tokyo Sports article where Naito says he wants to enter the NJ Cup and if he can't then the IC belt is a shackle. I'm calling my shot. They won't let Naito get a shot at another title since he has one. Naito is able to...

Re: Pro Wrestling hot stove

Dave reported that the Best Friends are heading to AEW and New Japan is not happy about it since they had a verbal agreement with Trent.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

They couldn't get the Japanese guys Visas because the United States government is not functioning at the moment.

If that continues until April these cards your looking at will be the card you're getting at MSG.

Re: VOW Flagship: AEW Rally, Wrestle Kingdom 13 & more!

When you were talking about the matches NJPW need for all these big shows I figure that London is the easiest. Either Will or Zack beat the IWGP Champ in the G1 and boom you have your main event.

Re: Most Improved

Jay White on January 4th and Jay White today is an immense difference.
