Re: Hayabusa passes away at 47

I doubt if Meltzer's bio on him will be like this but we will see. http://fmwwrestling.us/Hayabio.html I remember coming across an earlier version of this and the website as a whole 10 years ago. Really shows how key he was in FMW. Bahu is incredible. I had him on my podcast today to talk Hayabusa ...

Re: wXw - Germany's biggest promotion

There has been a change in management in Big Japan which is why they didn't consider his Germany booking which sucks so much, but it sometimes happens in wrestling. Still...may be the first time ever that I'm mad at Big Japan.

Re: Wrestle-1 thread

In a perfect world Yuji Hino would never lose the belt, but since that's not the case I can see Ikemen winning the belt because he was the first guy that Hino layd hands on when returning to W1 and he immensly popular.

Re: Wrestle-1 thread

Can't say this too often: I love how W1 creates its own hoss division. Yuji Hino made the product 100% more interesting to me and I firmly believe he will be a great champion.

Re: wXw - Germany's biggest promotion

Thatcher will be in Europe during Carat so he'll probably in it. David Starr is there too, but I think he will be an alternate.

Also Angelico did an interview recently and said he will work wXw in March. :)

Re: Wrestle-1 thread

Another lesser talked about point about this promotion: They have a steady stream of young girl fans in attendance (not yet DDT & DG levels but its there) which I guess will be a underrated point to their success in the long run as they have a couple of hunks(lack of a better word) on their roster ...
