Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread




I get the feeling that 2017 is going to be a year for the history books in a way even 2016 can't claim to match.

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 11

Do you think NJPW did the quick back-forth KUSHIDA/BUSHI title change to make it more ambiguous as to whether or not Takahashi wins at WK11? If KUSHIDA had held the title all year long, it would seem fairly obvious that Takahashi is winning to break his title reign. But since KUSHIDA just won the ti...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 11

Every bit of booking leading up to today indicated to me that Hiromu was losing to KUSHIDA at the Dome and today's result just solidified it. Shame, because they're going to have to heat him up again when they could just push forward now and make him a star. Very reminiscent of WWE. I'd gladly take...

Take a look at that newest follow. What a coincidence. Have to assume he's on payroll.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Mike Johnson confirmed the G1 talk today. Long Beach Convention Center seems to be the building of choice. I was listening to MLW with Court Bauer and Kevin Sullivan, Sullivan brought up a guy named George Carroll as someone who apparently is heavily involved in NJPW's international plans. You guys...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

So since this is the catch-all thread, the translation from Kidani's comments today re: having a dojo in Los Angeles and also potentially running some G-1 nights in the US is pretty interesting. And if they can't find a good venue in LA, they could easily slide into Vegas. For others who may be rea...

Re: Wrestle Kingdom 11

We already know that WK11 is going to have more robust Japanese TV broadcasting than any NJPW show in recent memory. TV Asahi (huge station, channel 5 in Japan) aired a 55-minute long edited version of WK10 on 1/5 last year from 1:30am-2:25. They're doing it again this year, but it'll go from 55m to...

Re: Wrestling Kingdom 11

Would it be possible for the mods to alter the title? Not that it really matters, but it's bugging the perfectionist in me.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

What I suspected would happen seems to be coming to fruition: although it will likely be a great show with the level of talent involved, it's not as "sexy" for the casual NJPW fans or first-timers as last year's was (mostly because that had Nakamura vs. AJ). And that's too bad, because, if Jim Ross'...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Shibata's against Goto in a tag match at the WTL Finals. You may be able to breathe a sigh of relief regarding Cody R.

Though I have been arguing that it wouldn't be him anyway.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Some Japanese people on Twitter are speculating that G.O.D. will beat G.B.H. and then do the whole "We have no challengers!" thing, only for Killer Elite Squad to return and challenge. That'd be pretty great. Also: https://twitter.com/SoDuTw/status/807002893828194304 Televising WK11 on AXS either li...
