Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Meltzer has a long piece in the Observer this week analyzing Kidani's NJPW USA plans. He's clearly extremely skeptical, and based on the situation as it currently stands, it's for the best. To get a real lay of the land and learn about what it would take to make money as a touring company in America...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I don't really buy what Kidani said about feeling personally insulted or anything by the Jan '16 raid, nor do I think that it was the true impetus for NJPW's July LA shows like he said. Definitely not. I think he's trying to develop an ECW Heyman-esque "us against them" mentality among the fans and ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

NJPW on its own may not be able to contend with WWE's biggest money offers at this point in time, but I'm quite sure that abundant dollars would come out of Bushiroad's coffers if that meant the difference between losing Omega and keeping him. I think money is going to be less of a factor in any fut...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

All of this adds up to the immediate competition being ROH, not WWE. We all saw this coming, except for ROH, who helped open the door for all of this. Years of handing exposure to NJPW stars in America, on their biggest shows and on TV. NJPW flat out stealing some of them (Elgin, KOR). NJPW got O'R...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Don "Cyrus" Callis confirmed on the Killing the Town podcast that he is taking over NJPW English color commentary. Never listened to his commentary for ECW or things like that, but he's got a good voice and he claims to be a big fan/follower of the product, so I hope that he can provide the story nu...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread



Both New Beginning cards getting English coms treatment, apparently. Just waiting for that there dedicated English interface (that should've been out before WK11 to really capitalize on the western interest, but I digress).

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Him stepping down makes absolute sense, because after this match it was either rematch and he wins the title or he loses momentum. Now New Japan wants to be build some anticipation for him. I really think that in this time they should make him tour the world, because I don't think he can get any ho...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I made a thing. If you enjoy it, like, and subscribe, I will make more things like it. I probably will anyway, but it'd be nice.

If my calculations are correct, when this year hits 2017 (which it has), you're gonna see some serious shit.

So... while everyone else throws some stars around, I feel like saying that I'm really looking forward to New Year Dash tonight.

There hasn't been an intermission at the last two WKs. They've just been doing the video package with the big shows schedule from February through August and that's it.

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 11

I hadn't thought of it like that, but now that you mention it, it does seem that way. Would not be surprised if that was the case at all. That's the thing - you don't need to be pulling so many of these guys away, especially the ones who are disgruntled and not actually that good for the NJPW envir...
