Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I've heard since before the G1 that New Japan were looking for a junior tag partner to team with BUSHI. All this talk of divisions merging was always really off base to me. GOD is more than likely winning the belts back at KOPW and I'd be willing to bet Goto and Ishii/Tacos will win the tag league. ...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

Wait. Is Soya back in AJPW? He showed up at Korakuen and challenged Omori to a match. I'd be very down for Jake and Sai teaming/working together. Jake works so much better as the bully on top in matches and it would allow him to get a little bit of his own shine away from Kento. It also would give ...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Not showing TPJ was a pretty horrible idea because the majority of the audience that watches RAW or goes to live shows hasn't seen any of the CWC. They have no idea who anyone is. I'm at a loss at to why anyone would think it was a good idea to not have the champion at least walk down and do a stare...

Shibata's been pulled from the rest of the tour. See you at KOPW PK man.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

As a BUSHI fan I'm pleased he finally got his title win, even if I don't think his reign will make it past Power Struggle, if that. Then again Gedo's booking hasn't been anywhere near as predictable as last year- so he might surprise again. Nearly everyone thought Okada vs Naito was set in stone fo...

Re: DDT - Home of Danshoku Dino

Kota Ibushi has been announced for the big 12/4 Osaka Octopus show. That's the show where the winner of the general election will face the KO-D champ who will probably still be Shuji Ishikawa. The last election numbers that DDT posted were as follows. I'll post the top 5. 1. 300 votes Danshoku Dino ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm not sure what people expect from crowds that don't really know the ROH guys either. Hope no one is expecting a hot crowd for Cole vs Will or the tag title match. They can't react to people that they have no clue about. As for BUSHI it's not his fault he was booked like a complete dork for most o...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

He missed house shows before the G1 last year so it's not the first time New Japan have taken him off shows. It's a big issue if he misses his title defense against Fish on Saturday. They can take him off the rest of the Destruction tour after and he can get some time off until KOPW. Could be a stin...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Sho and Yohei are very much shacking up with Sakai. Not saying it can't be one of them or both of them but I'm 99% sure it's not. Kamaitachi is more of a name you'd say for the time bomb. That's around the time he can be expected to come back. With someone like Rush they don't need to tease him with...

Re: Being Punked by Punk

The thing is UFC has always tried to say they aren't like PRIDE and then they went and booked something that would bring a tear to Sakakibara's eye. Then you have Punk who had an issue with part timers taking his Mania spot and then he goes to UFC and does the exact same thing there. Tom Lawler's po...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Let's get it kicking: Who's the new pareja that showed up at Korakuen?

To me it looked like the person was wearing padded clothing to throw you off. There's been rumors about New Japan bringing in someone to team with BUSHI for a long time now so I would go with the thinking this guy is a junior.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Kitamura and Oka are going to need to actually compete with some guys with pro wrestling experience if they want to break out of the boring grappling phase of their careers. I'm no expert on wrestling training, but it seems to me that if NJPW continuously pairs them off with each other it will be d...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

NOAH cannot exist without SZKG. They simply do not have a big enough roster of guys to fill shows out without them. That's why I don't think the time bomb is Suzuki. Not to mention how will SZKG work when Sugiura is still the GHC champ? New Japan wouldn't be coming in to save NOAH from them. They'd ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Shibata vs EVIL looks like likely for KoPW. Shibata can win or lose that match. Then he'll have O'Reilly at Power Struggle. We get Shiozaki vs Shibata at WK because I doubt Suguira will make it out of 2016 the GHC champ. It looks like Nakajima will beat him. The title match won't be until the very e...
