Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Owens win was used as a device to kick off whatever Trips/Steph story they have cooking. Owens winning the title was secondary. You can'r re-do that moment, and it's a shame. I like him and i'm happy for him, but I'm highly skeptical of all of this, and with good reason. Again, we'll expand on the ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

New Japan makes most of their money from fans in Japan that buy tickets for shows. To say they should merge the divisions so Twitter warriors can be excited is one of the dumbest things I've ever read.

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

Well Marufuji and Nakajima were back for this show and it didn't draw any better than the junior tournament semis.

Re: Super J Cup 2016

Did Taichi single handedly ruin the 2016 super j cup? He performed well and his antics got over live. It's not the tournament story any of us here wanted told though, that's for sure. western eyes, western eyes, western eyes! The show barely had 3000 people. It wasn't what anyone wanted to see.

Re: WWE Cruiserweight Classic

I don't see any way two Japanese guys advance as the entire tournament concept was to show how global the company is. In theory they'd want a final four with different reps from each country. I think the winner will have to be a signed guy who speaks English since HHH is gonna be front and center p...

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

My baseless guess would be that while Jado is booking, he doesn't have control over who is booked. Do they use any freelancers at all these days? I imagine it's part of the ongoing purse-string-tightening. NOAH stopped using guys like Strong BJ, Yankee Two Kenji, Masato Tanaka and others about a ye...

Re: WWE Cruiserweight Classic

I don't think the final 4 will be guys that will be on Raw next month but I do think it would be a mistake for the winner to not be one of them. Given who's left I'd have TJP win. Will be interesting to see who wins between Tozawa and Dorada too.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Really interesting that Bobby Fish is getting a NEVER Title shot as Shibata. That should be an awesome match, but it seems to have come totally out of nowhere. I know that Shibata is wrestling Kyle O'Reilly at Field of Honor so maybe they are setting up some sort of angle there? Fish beat Shibata a...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

SUSHI is perfectly fine in his role. Not everyone is suppose to be pushed. He's the Captain New Japan of All Japan. The guy is practically set for life or as long as All Japan exists.

They don't have a rookie to put in the role of someone getting pinned all the time either.

I'm not sure Gedo and Kidani would think it's much fun to see fans vote for Naito and Tanahashi heavily over Okada.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

As for the second part, I want this feud capitalized on, period. Good to see they are headlining LG with it, but I was surprised that there is nothing on any of the Destruction cards. All of this is moot of they do something big at KOPW. If they don't, they are in danger of pissing away a hot deal....

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The spearhead of the NOAH/NJPW stuff is Shibata. Shibata is still the NEVER champ. He still has a belt to defend. Not sure why this is such a hard concept to understand. Not to mention when you have Nakajima eating pins to Quiet Storm how will NOAH fans take Nakajima seriously enough to do anything....

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

So wait, is "Special Singles Match" basically non-title? Is Okada not defending the IWGP Heavyweight Title against Bad Luck Fale? Is Michael Elgin not defending the IWGP Intercontinental Title against Tetsuya Naito? Okada is not defending against Fale. Elgin vs Naito will be an IC title match if El...

Re: Super J Cup 2016

The thing with Marufuji is he won the last 2 Super J Cups and went on to become a heavyweight and win the GHC HW belt and lots of other things. KUSHIDA winning this one tournament is a shrug for him. He applauded him but not shaking his hand isn't that much of a shock or slight. KUSHIDA will get BUS...
