Re: G1 CLIMAX 28

Block A leads me to believe that White is retaining in San Francisco, otherwise, all champions are in Block B and I don't picture NJPW doing that. It's difficult to read the direction they're going with the US title though... if Juice wins at the Cow Palace I don't see anyone in the B-block that wo...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

PuroDream uploaded the SamuraiTV broadcast of the 5/26 and 5/27 BoSJ matches. Some have been clipped to fit a 2-hour window but it's got full production and commentary. Flip vs Tiger ACH vs YOH Kanemaru vs Ishimori BUSHI vs Ospreay Desperado vs Scurll Sabin vs Lee KUSHIDA vs SHO Hiromu vs Taguchi Th...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

AJPW TV being a thing is weird to get used to, lmao. There was a liveshow today in Okinawa that had a decent Aoki/Maruyama title match and another one tomorrow with Akiyama vs masked Yohei Nakajima. There are 8 shows making tape this month but none of them will have Survival Tobita capturing the GAO...

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

Weekday events, starting with Tuesday's house show and the next Korakuen, are getting $10 discounts for each hour passed since the show started. So if you show up 3 hours late before the main event starts, you can get in for about $10. The next Korakuen looks fairly stacked but goddamn..... Also in...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Assuming none of the teased matches get pushed back to Cow Palace (which they can probably do, Dominion is almost sold out already) this looks pretty good. Only match that I don't care about is Goto vs Elgin/Taichi. I'd rather Juice have won that belt and unify with the US Title but it'll be alright...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Tomorrow is low-key stacked. I just remembered the BoSJ reveal + The Boner Rising on top of everything else.

Bold last-minute prediction: Jericho challenges Okada.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

At least with this tour, they've been booking a lot of singles matches as lead-ins to title matches so I really think we'll get Taichi vs Elgin as a singles match w/ the winner fighting Goto at Dominion. Maybe on a re-formed Dontaku undercard or a Road To show. I'm not sure what the flight path/sche...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm feeling pretty excited for this Dontaku tour. I'm excited that they're throwing all the titles on the line (something I wish of every/almost every tour) with a bunch of random special singles matches littered throughout. This is how you at least make these ludicrously spread-out tours interestin...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm actually really high on the Page/White match. Its flaws with the atmosphere, length, and layout are apparent but I still kept with it and enjoyed it even when it slowed down to a bunch of selling. Individual parts were sold badly but the exhaustion and WILL TO WIN(!!!) I thought were well done. ...

Re: Worst Finishing Moves

I don't like EVIL having a STO as a finisher. I always thought it was a weak looking move to have as a finisher. I generally agree about the STO - even Ogawa's looked like he was glomping someone. But EVIL puts so much force in sweeping the leg and pushing you down that it looks like absolute hell ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Better late than never for Suzukigun to live up to their potential, eh? Assuming Taichi keeps wrestling as a more straight-and-forward bruiser, Suzuki keeps clean, and the Kanemaru/Desperado team remains constant than Suzukigun could be called Actually Good. To get it out of the way: I hate the book...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

I've seen both 3/3 and 3/7 thrown around as dates that the All Japan streaming service would launch. The website says "Details will be announced as soon as it is decided at any time." Anybody know the actual date? Is it up already? Theirs is not the easiest site for a non-Japanese speaker to naviga...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

It's very TNA to announce that the Triple Crown will be defended at a Border City Wrestling show they are recording only to suddenly retract that it was a TC defence. Did they not ask AJPW if Moose vs Joe could be a title match? Probably had guaranteed Joe Doering would be going over and figured th...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Point-blank this New Japan Cup field is terrible. With the roster NJPW has, putting Taylor/Taichi/Archer/Smith/YOSHI/Yano in it is pitiful. If you're going to include the NEVER as an option for the winner to choose at least include some juniors, God. Anyways, if we're going off the normal booking pa...
