Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

This is definitely what Jim Crockett Promotions looked like in its dying years.

Re: VOW Flagship: Okada/Suzuki, New Beginning, Elimination Chamber & more!

I enjoy how 31-year-old Jay Lethal was referred to as a "good, aging veteran hand."

Makabe's show isn't having English commentary either.

Some people act like this is a bad thing.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Coming off of those two grueling title matches, Okada looks the strongest and most dominant that he ever has. Who will be the man to defeat him?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I found it interesting that Joe wrote in his New Beginning preview "Like Nakamura, Naito draws money without the title anyway and doesn't need the extra rub."

Do people think that Okada's drawing power would be diminished without being champion, in a way that Naito's is not?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread



People suggesting Okada was told to tweet this by somebody higher up. I just found it funny.



Now this, bonus.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Alright, people need to calm the fuck down with NJPW drawing like 1.6k people in Korakuen today. IT WAS JUST A ROAD TO SHOW, AND A ROAD TO NEW BEGINNING SHOW I MIGHT ADD. FOURTH SHOW IN KORAKUEN IN 7 DAYS. If it was like 1000 people, I could understand why people are scared, but guys, just please c...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

So Omega says that it's looking like he'll be in NJPW for at least one more year. Very suspicious about the vagueness used there. Kidani said that NJPW: USA is scheduled for 2018. I give NJPW too much credit for Omega to not already be locked down long enough to be an integral part of that. That wou...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

If they wanted to do that, they'd probably have to combine the two shows again. With most or all of the titles on the line, I think they'd be able to do a respectable number. However, The New Beginning isn't really a blockbuster tour for NJPW, it's somewhat of a come-down from Wrestle Kingdom. I don...

According to the ticket websites, we're down to the cheapest two seat categories at this time.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Absolutely not. I would expect a setup of Korakuen Hall size, max. 1,500 give or take 300.

Let's just say that chief executives of companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars are rarely humble.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

"I can really see that New Japan is going to end up being like Crockett Promotions in trying to fight [WWE] and lose. Everybody else is going to be gobbled up by trying to be friends [with WWE] and lose. That's the direction for however long this is going to be, probably the next 3-4 years." - Dave...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Considering that and all the costs involved of flying in equipment and talent, I would have to imagine that these shows will be money-losers unless they jack up ticket prices and/or clean up at the merchandise table. You were talking about having important matches to put NJPW's best foot forward, bu...
