Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Also when you lock in a cross armbreaker I feel like the match should just end, otherwise it seems like you're using a move you can't execute properly. Yeah, this kinda bothers me too. Granted, it's wrestling, a lot of wrestling moves if applied for real would kill a dude, this and that, but the ar...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

Maruyama challenges for the junior belt on the Fan appreciation show on 12/17. I have not compared the numbers, but I am fairly certain that Maruyama is the guy who have had the most title shots of anyone in All Japan this year. Gaora belt, Asia tags, Bang! tv battle royal and with another Bang tit...

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

So, the Global League final is Go Shiozaki vs Kenoh. Thoughts?

Re: VOW Flagship: Zayn & Owens, Power Struggle, Bound for Glory, Dragon Gate & more!

Hiromu Ambrose is a perfect analogy. When you said it the image of Dean with that hotdog cart popped into my mind immediately. I remembered when he was in FCW and could be taken at least somewhat seriously as a crazy person but then WWE did what they did and he's just a guy who does wacky comedy now...

Re: WWE Cuts 2017

I'm a big Summer Rae apologist, I think she could've been used so much better. She really did love wrestling, and most importantly she loved WWE style wrestling and she sought to excel at that - she could've been used as a manager or somebody like that. She was no Manami Toyota between the ropes bu...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

This is definitely a detour from what is mostly being discussed and it's a recurring issue with NJPW but this Jericho thing really got me thinking about it again. How is it possible that a company like NJPW is going through all the trouble they are to expand into the US still use automatic Google tr...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

I watched the Yokohama show on FITE. I was pleased with the streaming, as my internet has sucked for the last few days but there wasn't one hiccup during the show. I was baffled with their theme song muting though. For example, they can't play Joe's song but they've always played Suwama's. So what t...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

9/10 Korakuen show was just awesome. Iwamoto vs Suzuki was a great opener. It had some backstory to it, Iwamoto being in love with AJPW and having no respect for the TRAITOR Suzuki who dared to abandone them is a great angle (same exact story with Okada/Sato which is also great). However it was stil...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

Well probably seeing an Akiyama/Omori tag win. Kind of wait and see for Okabayashi for the tag league I'm guessing as well, unless someone has news on the severity. What do you guys think if more probable, Doering defeats Suwama, or Suwama defeats Doering leading to Doering and Kea winning tag leag...

Re: VOW Flagship: Neville, Jimmy Jacobs, KOPW, HIAC & more!

I totally agree with Joe: Taichi/Kanemaru and Despy/TAKA as the SZKG tags was just wrong. I really don't think War Machine is leaving though, as they sworn revenge on KES on their post match promo. Thankfully they did not ask for a rematch and just said they'd win the Tag League, so they'll probably...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I see there is another Lions Project show on 16th November with the next round of Young Lions' cup and then two more rounds on the Korauken Road to TOKYO DOME shows in December. Unless i have missed a round that makes me wonder if the final might feature on the dome. As a pre-broadcast treat for NJ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I mean, Yuma's a Junior. I don't think there's much to be upset over here. I'm still very curious about how the NJPW/AJPW relationship is gonna pan out but if I had to bet it's gonna just be some AJPW guys working these shows. I really liked all the YL Cup matches. They seemed to let the guys do a l...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Any news on ticket sales for KoPW, Evan? It is going to be very interesting whether this one sells out or not (or maybe it already did, I haven't followed the news recently), on one hand I would say this is a stronger show than Sakura Genesis and last year's KOPW as well, on the other though - Nait...

Re: Evolve (WWNLive)

You know, whatever this is, I have to say it's a good idea to acknowledge the real situation the company finds itself in while promoting these shows, as if they didn't do it, everyone would've just ended up talking about this over anything else that could take place in these shows anyway.

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

I was surprised with quite a few of today's results. Eddie retaining was a small surprise, but I didn't think Storm/Yone and Harada were going to win their matches at all. Apparently Okabayashi and Nagai announced their intentions to join the Global League on this show as well, so... good news, all ...
