Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Finals, KENTA/Shibata & WWE SummerSlam Review

The Naito thing feels like another example of people approaching booking from different angles. I think NJPW business will pretty much keep booming no matter what, but I think the Naito story has just been a major fumble from a storytelling quality perspective. It’s like if Thanos just killed all th...

Re: VOW Flagship: TripleMania, G1 Climax Final Stretch, SummerSlam Weekend

I think a lot of people who aren't enjoying KENTA's current output (I'd count myself in that realm even though I enjoyed the Ibushi match) were probably not the biggest fans of him in the old days either. Like, I loved his aura, loved the way he carried himself, etc. But even in NOAH I would never c...

Re: VOW Flagship: AEW TNT Debut, NJPW/ROH, TripleMania & more!

I think being along for the ride for a buzzworthy promotion is fun, and it's always cool to see companies do well, but as a NOAH ride or die I've learned that people are just going to shit on your favorite promotion for jokes even when it's really good inside the ring. I do think that people need to...

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

Plus the year before that was the Naito v Ibushi G1 match which was Ibushi’s first match since taking off the Tiger Mask W mask. So idk the guys might be out to lunch a little on Naito’s In ring in the G1. All of the big stars have a great match out of the gate because the first night of each block...

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

Pretty interesting comparing NOAH's strapping the rocket to Kaito to AJPW's situation with Miyahara. It's easy to forget that most fans thought that at the time, Miyahara might not be ready for the big time. But AJPW's hand was forced and there was really no other option, and it happened to work be...

Re: VOW Flagship: Dominion, KENTA, Dragon Gate & more!

One of the things I'm a bit puzzled by is the point that the Jericho/Okada match "felt different". In terms of Okada taking a beating, I think stuff like the Suzuki draws were probably better at conveying that level of physical beating. You're right in that they sort of cut off the classic closing s...

Re: VOW Flagship: BOSJ Finals, Dominion, TakeOver XXV & Aoki

High end spotfests are cool and fun Yeah honestly I think Ospreay is at his best when he's just doing stupid flip shit. He should basically just be doing Teddy Hart shit. He more runs into problems when he's trying to do the "dramatic match", trying to do the NJPW main event style (or, even worse, ...

Re: NOAH - Who is NOAH's savior??

Tweeted this, but someone inside the wrestling business who very likely attempted to book KENTA told us last week that NOAH had talks with KENTA a while back but money was an issue. Had also heard that KENTA to NJPW was basically all about money, they just offered him much more than any other oppor...

Re: VOW Flagship: BOSJ Finals, Dominion, TakeOver XXV & Aoki

Wrestling is at it's absolute best when the line between reality and fiction is slightly blurred. We all love getting worked a little, identifying with a character, rooting for a person. Underdog runs in WWE resonate because we actually do think that performer is being held down. Someone like Nick G...

Re: VOW Flagship: BOSJ Finals, Dominion, TakeOver XXV & Aoki

Are we absolutely sure Ospreay is going to be in the G1 this year? And that's why he "couldn't lose to a junior"? Because he's going to have to either lose to Dragon Lee or go into the G1 with the junior title. So Ospreay is going to lose to a junior no matter what. If he was going to lose to Hirom...
