Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

Does anyone know if NJ World still bills on the 1st of every month regardless of when you sign up? Just trying to make sure I have the money in my account so I don't have to worry about anything come Monday.

Re: 1990 and 1991 Watch List

Yeah, I'm EASILY in the most convenient time ever to be doing this. Very much so. It used to be very hard to find a lot of the 90s stuff in high quality (or even reasonable quality!) and I'm still blown away whenever I look at the New Japan World archive because there's a lot of stuff on there I se...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Given the sheer amount of guys they are likely going to fit in on the show Anniversary has the potential to be a real clusterfuck. Or it will be similar to the 2014/2015 ROH/NJPW joint shows, which were 8 of the best shows the company has produced in years. I'm stoked that they finally found a way ...

Re: 1990 and 1991 Watch List

That's a remarkably complete list. I can't think of anything I'd add, at least off the top of my head.

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

Anyway, I really don't get where people are coming from with this. I'd like to hear about this "character progression" we didn't get that people would like to have seen. Specifics. Do they want a gimmick change or something? Naito changed gimmicks because his career had plateaued and he was going n...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

I think it's the most well built match in wrestling right now. Cocky Okada gets taunted out of the Dome last year, has to start from scratch, become a "man" by going through Fale, winning the title back, and the epic performance from both a kayfabe and non kayfabe perspective vs Tenryu (saving a ma...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

I am genuinely curious what the people who aren't super hyped for this match need to spice it up for them. I mean you've got almost four years of history built into this thing, all of the previous matches between the two have been terrific (even the WK7 match, which I don't love as much as a lot of...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

As a newcomer to New Japan (I hopped on board with Wrestle Kingdom 9 and pretty quickly became a NJPW World junkie) I find it fascinating that there are people who are fans of the product but who are nonetheless apathetic about the Okada/Tanahashi main event. I mean, considering how great every one...

Re: ROH Final Battle 2015 Discussion Thread

Through an error with my DirecTV wireless internet receiver gimmick, I got this show and was for whatever reason charged $5.99 for DBZ Battle of Gods instead. Thought AJ/Lethal was very good, I enjoyed Cole/O'Reilly a lot and the rest of the show ranged from solid to good. Easily the best live PPV R...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

You know what's the problem with this 6-man tag title? Once you enter the division, it'll be impossible to get out, Gedo will keep it as separate entity just like every other division. So, on one side it'll attach some meaning to certain mid-card matches, but at the same time it'll cement some wres...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

The bright side of this new NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Championship is that it's a title that AJ Styles & The Young Bucks could actually hold. I mean it's probably not going to happen, but dammit, they're so great that they deserve a title of some kind! I'm at the point where I can't tell if...

I don't think the New Japan cameramen would have been as fond of ODB's rear end.
