Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The only argument I could see for putting Tana v Kota on KOPW would be if NJPW wanted to heat up Ibushi for the rumored Omega match at WK. It would make sense to have Ibushi pin someone BC related at Power Struggle( maybe Fale?). You can get to Omega vs. Ibushi even after Ibushi loses at PS. Rememb...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm confused about when Tanahashi vs. Ibushi is going to happen. Meltzer apparently "confirmed" it is happening at KOPW, which makes no sense to me. I can't find the confirmation anywhere (NJPW's Japanese or English sites, STRIGGA, Charlton, etc.) so I am skeptical as I think that is a perfect Power...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I guess I'm one of the few that's for the most part fine with Suzuki-gun antics. I don't mind them as they are totally unlike anyone else on the roster and serve their roles as heels that eventually get their comeuppance. The chaotic element they bring to their matches is something different and I l...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Someone on r/njpw said Meltzer confirmed "Switchblade" vignettes are for Sami Callihan. Where do you see him fitting into NJPW?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Apparently Matt Riddle & Jeff Cobb are going to be in the Tag League. Great news. What stable do you think they'll end up aligning with?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

This may be a dumb question but what happened to Marty Scurll in NJPW? Have they just not brought him back for another tour. I know this season is kind of a shadow period for juniors in general but Marty did great and he hasn't been in the promotion since Long Beach I think. Update. He's back in Oc...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Uh, no. He's referring to the propensity to have Junior Tag Team Championship matches be multi-team affairs. Two years ago, there were 4 teams fighting for the strap at Wrestle Kingdom IIRC. Ok that makes more sense. I think that is going to be the case as well. Taguchi Japan vs. Bucks vs. Suzuki-g...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm shocked the Bucks are out. This has to be a situation where they're getting the title shot against the winner and NJPW didn't want to do the predictable bit of having them lose in the final - like the year Omega skipped the BOSJ. I would expect Dragon Lee and partner (Soberano?) in as a team, b...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I think the simplest reason is that NJPW doesn't need to fly in every foreigner talent for every tour - honestly the way the roster is right now, they don't even need every Japanese guy for every tour. And ROH probably has some restrictions on who Scurll can lose to, so for example he couldn't have...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I don't see the Bullet Club splitting up for the same reasons most of you have gotten at - merch money, global notoriety, etc. NJPW probably realize that Bullet Club is by far one of the most recognizable names in wrestling, more so than Omega as an individual. Having him leave them would be a mista...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Makes me wonder what we are going to get as the main event at Power Struggle if they are doing Tanahashi vs. ZSJ now. Perhaps Ibushi vs. Tanahashi? I still think we are going to see Suzuki vs. Tanahashi at WK12, so I am not sure how they sandwich Ibushi in-between two SZKG matches for Tana, unless ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Tiger would be interesting and he could pick up a win earlier in the night to help his cause. I still have no clue what we will be getting at the Dome for the Jr. belt.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I was thinking that Omega would lose the US Title to either Elgin or Juice, more likely Elgin. And then Ibushi would beat Tana for the IC Title, and then Omega/Ibushi would be for the IC and could co-main. The problem with that though is what does Tana do? I guess they could do Suzuki/Tana for the ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

My current best WK predictions are Ibushi vs Omega semi-main and Tana doing the honors to the rising star in EVIL. I have no idea where the NEVER title may be headed next, though. I think Tanahashi will be facing off against Suzuki at Wrestle Kingdom- one of them will lose their belt between now an...
