That the Misawa/Omega comparison is off because the All Japan tag title was a main event title and the IWGP Jr. Title means nothing?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Were you screaming to the high heavens when Misawa lost the tag belts then won the GHC Title a month later? (This happened to my knowledge at least twice) or when that same scenario happened to Misawa on a near year to year basic in mid 90s All Japan? This isn't some brand new booking technique. If...

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

Paul told him to stop being that guy. They didn't hire him to be a geek. The very next he went out and literally murdered Tyler Breeze for 15 minutes. He was KENTA again until he got hurt. And he'll be KENTA again when he gets back. He'll be pissed and folks will be fucked. Pretty sure Tyler Breeze...

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

Explain. Go watch a KENTA match from pre WWE. Then watch KENTA in NXT. Not even remotely the same guy. Paul told him to stop being that guy. They didn't hire him to be a geek.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

As a old timey wrestling fan, it's never a good idea for a promotion to stay stale and not produce newer stars. These departures will force Gedo and company to possibly do what Vince did at the start of the attitude ear. He pushed everyone to the Moon and whoever got and stayed over, became a semi-...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 (Official Discussion)

Anyone know where I can watch some wrestling where a guy takes a couple dragon screws and is never able to walk again for the rest of his life? I think that would really improve my experience as a viewer. No but if I looked real hard I could probably find you some wrestling where a guy takes a coup...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 (Official Discussion)

Really wasn't a fan of the show outside of Shibata/Ishii and AJ/Nakamura. I wnated to like the main event but really wasn't into it until the last couple of minutes. GBH/G&G was fine and Naito/Goto wasn't bad or anything but the rest of the card wasn't very good. I didn't have huge expectations for ...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 (Card & Pre-Show Discussion)

Main page on NJPW World has a graphic saying the show starts at 16:00, which is not 3 AM EST like the schedule says, but rather 2 AM. Just wanted everyone to know so they don't potentially miss an hour of the show.

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

Is the pre-show gonna air on World? If so, what time does it start? Half hour before the show? It'll air live on World, starts an hour and fifteen minutes before the show. Alright, thanks. Does the Rambo take place earlier or later on the pre show (usually)? Assuming it doesn't take up the entire t...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

All Japan announced they're running Sumo Hall on 11/27. First time in about three years. Spoilers from today's show below. After what has been described as a hot match, your new TC champ is Suwama. Zeus, Shuji Ishikawa, and Kento Miyahara all came out to challenge him and it seems a challenger will...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Also, maybe contacting Meltzer would do some good, including mentioning that a bunch of other people are having problems as well (maybe include a link to this thread). He tends to report on this stuff, especially if it happens after a big PPV. I also believe that NJPW higher ups talk to him or read...
