Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Surprised they didn't go the Ishii/Goto route but not overly disappointed, I think both of them are well above the tag belts. I'm happy for GBH to win them and I still don't think they ever should have lost them to GOD in the first place. Hopefully this leaves Ishii free for an IC belt feud after W...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

https://twitter.com/WhatCulturePW/status/806129091275608064 Again, Cody is booked in Liverpool the day after Wrestle Kingdom, they're hyping it up as a big deal. If he's working the Dome, how is he supposed to get there on time? It would be very difficult. And even if he could, if he's going to work...

Okada, Hollywood, big announcement. I suspect that we may be finding out about what that job was in 23 hours.

Re: Promotion of the Year

New Japan has recovered from concerns about its future earlier this year and the match quality is excellent. I'm not sure how much its grown as a company business wise/popularity wise, so I'm still going with WWE. https://twitter.com/enuhito_eng/status/774567497756319745 Profit increased to 410 mil...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

NJPW announced The New Beginning 2017 will be split into two shows, Osaka (as usual) and the other one this year will be Sapporo, in Hokkaido Prefectural Sports Center (capacity ~5500). Japanese wrestling twitter from that region is very pleased, as they generally only get one NJPW show a year - G1 ...

Re: VOW Flagship: Hell in a Cell 2016, NOAH Sale, Power Struggle & more!

Let's take a look. G1 N13 (Tanahashi/Maru, Okada/Ishii) - 5270 Dominion (Okada/Naito) - 9925 (Jo-Hall, down a little from the reported number the year prior) New Beginning (Okada/Goto) - 5180 Power Struggle 2015 (Nak/Anderson) - 5128 G1 N8 (Okada/Goto, Nak/Ishii) - 4593 ----------------------------...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Guerrillas of Destiny (c) vs. Ishii & YOSHI-HASHI for the tag belts is third on the card at Power Struggle. I don't think I've ever seen the IWGP Tag Team Championship featured so early in a show.

Maybe Gedo has startlingly realized that the Guerrillas of Dead Crowds are not good.

Any talk on the Stardom situation in this, or are you waiting for it to pan out and be official before discussing it on the pod?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Power Struggle sells out 12 days in advance with Naito (c) vs. Lethal main. Another feather in the cap of Naito as a draw, and will likely be his 7th 5000+ attendance show main-evented this year, same number as Okada.

Re: VOW Flagship (October 20): Call for Questions!

If NJPW had a show in the United States, what do you think would be the best-drawing singles match to main event? You can use anyone from NJPW and anyone from ROH who wrestles in NJPW regularly.

Re: Hideo Itami Injury, Okada's Year, King of Pro-Wrestling & more!

I see what you're saying. Also have to factor in that it did cannibalize whatever small PPV money they were generating both in Japan and abroad. For example, G1 used to cost $120 on USTREAM, now it costs about $8 - $9. I know the major shows were offered via PPV in Japan as well, and I am aware tha...
