Fascinating. Came out of it as a big Maki Itoh but also much more knowlagable in general about wider Joshi. Hoping to see more Miyu Yamashita soon.

Plus Korakuen is just excellent. I've been in the Hammerstein and this was more iconic for me.

Re: Wrestling Omakase #45: Fantasy Draft Vol. 2 (WWE women/joshi)

Sweet! Thanks. On Taylor's card the main is my clear favourite match, so no question that delivers. I'd have been tempted to switch up a couple matches so we got Maki Itoh vs Alexa Bliss for that personality clash and then Jungle fighting up against Charlotte. Haven't got into Wave yet so Rina is a ...

Re: Wrestling Omakase #45: Fantasy Draft Vol. 2 (WWE women/joshi)

Off the top of my head I think John takes it but I'll need to see the full lists and cards. That main event though. I knew Hana would go first round, might not have taken her first myself but top two for sure. She's so damn versatile. Her vs Miyu Yamashita feels like something you could build years ...

Re: Wrestling Omakase #43: Fantasy Draft Vol. 1 (WWE/NJPW)

Alex probably had my favourite card, Suit had the sneaky card that might have the highest match quality top to bottom.

Re: VOW Flagship: Fastlane, New Japan Cup, WrestleMania Card

I loathe public trans with the fire of a thousand suns but honestly with a little intuition and access to Google Maps Tokyo was dead easy to get around. I think you guys would be fine there, all the signs are in English so you know where you're going. It's not that hard.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

i will probably be proven wrong tomorrow , but there can only be one reason that Okada is bringing back the cobra clutch ... To use it against the NJ cup winner and "master of submission", ZSJ :lol: To be fair, it's entirely so he can ripcord someone out of it for a Rainmaker in a main event. He's ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Kudos to the main page for bringing to my attention Zack's name for that move, "Orienteering with Napalm Death", which is a reference to leftwing stand up (and personal favourite) comedian Stewart Lee. And in the same week as Lees former double act partner Richard Herring ran into Will Ospreay on Tw...

Re: Nihon ni Ikimasu: A series about traveling to Japan for wrestling

Does the author still post here? Am finally going to stop procrastinating and organise a trip to Japan. Was hoping he would continue his articles, particularly around the purchasing of tickets for shows. The author is John, the host of wresting omakaze. Hit him up on Twitter @toshanshuinLA , sure h...

Re: Nihon ni Ikimasu: A series about traveling to Japan for wrestling

This was superbly useful in sorting transport and picking locations. However if I went again I'd stick just with a hotel. I wound up getting a dose of legionella at my airbnb and it wiped out one day of the trip (powered through the rest) and killed my appetite for weeks. Beware air conditioning iss...

Re: Rob's Guide on How to Progress through PROGRESS

Brilliant guide, thanks for putting it up. Been using it to navigate through the promotion and I'm now up to chapter 22. Got to the point where I'm not skipping anything barring Riots matches for obvious reasons. I'd followed a lot of this talent for years, from the Leaders in their infancy to Drago...

Re: VOW Flagship: Elimination Chamber, Honor Rising, CHIKARA Name Game & Your Questions!

It's funny that you actually laughed at Dan Moloney and didn't believe that he was real given that he even apppeared in the WWE UK tournament as one of those guys that nobody knew. Aside from that, fun as always. Yeah, some fun entries in that game but also to be fair a bunch of guys who aren't Chi...

Re: Wrestling Omakase #33 & 34: History of STARDOM & WWE 2003-07

Thanks for this guys. I was jonesing to see more after the Mae Young Classic and had Stardom World recommended last Sept and watched every match since. By Jan I'd seen them live at Shinkiba 1st Ring and followed to a second show at Shizuoka. Still, despite basic understanding of Io and the Thunder R...
