Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

Ishikawa vs. Jake Lee was such a perfect first defence! I loved everything about it. Jake really stepped up to the plate.

Re: 2017 Rookie Tracking

Would it be a push to suggest Kid Lykos for this? It depends how you consider ATTACK! as a company, but he's come into prominence since September making a statement in Fight Club: PRO and PROGRESS, the first you could argue having bigger visibility (he only started with them this year), and the lat...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

Bird vs Haskins is a fantastic match for both guys. Bird is really raising his stock and this is a next tier guy for him to go against. Haskins meanwhile needs a big performance and a strong win which he'll get from this.

Re: G1 Climax 27

That is such an interesting stat. I actually had to re-read it a few times because I couldn’t believe it. Without giving it any thought I would have guessed that more often than not the G1 winner has won at the Dome. I can’t believe that nobody has ever cashed in the briefcase successfully. That rea...

Re: Big Japan - The promotion of MEN

I'm not a DM obsessive but I'm very impressed by the main event of this card. Not many Japanese companies are willing to hand the keys to young wrestlers and tell them to do what they do best. And that reflects up and down the card. Yeah, its not exactly a super card of in-ring work, but if you wan...

Re: Big Japan - The promotion of MEN

Like I said, I have no feel for the DM stuff. I’m talking purely for me and my tastes it’s a weird card. I have a morbid curiosity in the Daisuke/Okapi vs Ito/Abby match but I’m not expecting it to be particularly good. Just giving my opinion on why it’s weird to me.

Re: Young Lions idea

Komatsu and Tanaka haven't been in Mexico for a while, they've been in Jersey and working ROH ..or, I suppose, barely working. :/ Sadly ROH hasn't really been any better with the handling of NJPW excursion talent, than TNA were. For all the flack TNA got for their pathetic handling of Okada, ROH di...

Young Lions idea

Curious what people think of this, but it’s something I think there is a real opportunity for now that we have a zillion Young Lions in New Japan. Traditionally all the black trunks YL’s are NJPW Sekigun – i.e. they team with guys who aren’t in a particular faction. Nowadays that of course would be ...

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

I think NOAH is in a pretty good place right now, especially relative to where it's been for the past couple of years. I would have put the belt on Kotoge, because he's very over, but I can see that they would want to nurture him for a bit longer, maybe give him a nice performance in the Global Lea...

Re: Big Japan - The promotion of MEN

The Sumo Hall card is weird. I have no feel for the DM scene so I have no idea if that's a good main event or not. But Strong BJ being lumped in with Abby/Ito is a waste I think, and I don't buy Kawakami as a credible challenger for Hideki at all. It'll probably draw great and I'm hardly their targe...
