Tonga I was told has not, and there is no word that he will, but my source expected that to change.

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

I'm glad Rocky got a great deal out of all this, dude makes me laugh. Working as a trainer for NXT is a good deal, but I'd rather see the Tensai and the Norman Smileys than just know that they work there. I'm really only excited for Karl Anderson, WWE's not the best booking Asian wrestlers (though T...

Re: NJPW/CMLL FantasticaMania 2016

Great, this will be my first time watching the event, any recommendations for matches from past events?

Re: SATOSHI KOJIMA APPRECIATION STATION

Thanks for putting this up, watching Kojima in WK5 was one of the main reasons I watch New Japan now.

Re: TNA 2015: It still exists, kind of!

I'd like to see TNA put effort into what made them great in the first place. The Main Event scene was cool and all, but it was the Women's and mid-card (X Division, Tag Teams) matches that made them so amazing. The X-Division was the reason they got all that buzz in the first place. They should also...

Will any of this be on NJPW World?

Re: WCW Thread

This will be 23 years on Sunday. Go to about 9 minutes in for the closing stretch. One of the biggest pops you ever heard. JR is so great in this. I'm not a big Ron Simmons fan, but this is one of my favorite WCW moments. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEFiVntlPNA As black guy who is a huge fan of...

Re: Let's bury the World Wrestling Federation....

Personally, I have no idea what WWE's doing anymore. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind being surprised if the company had any idea what they are doing. Why does Kan stay with the Authority and take Seth Rollins crap? Why hasn't Seth Rollins been able to get more clean wins in title matches to make hi...

Re: Roddy Piper dies at the age of 61

That man was way too young to have gone so soon, it's just a shame. Because of any number of things, it seems like a third of wrestlers that pass die of freaking heart attacks. Roddy was a great heel in his prime and he was always a gifted speaker. It's why he was a great heel manager, a fantastic (...

Re: WWE Battleground, Kobe World, G1 Climax & more!

Seafood Pro Wrestling eh? Well, Sharkboy has found lifelong employment.

On a separate note, wouldn't Goto be pre-New Day Kofi Kingston? Neither of those guys won the big one whereas Sheamus has done it a couple times.

Re: G1 Climax & WWE Battleground Preview, ROH Ratings & more!

Satoshi Kojima is one of my favorite wrestlers in the company. I've loved him since I saw him for the first time in WKV against Tanahashi. Right then, I knew that man was a badass. To find out he was in nWo Japan and see his earlier up to and including his title wins in All Japan and New Japan made ...
