Re: NJPW/CMLL FantasticaMania 2016

Virus vs. Dragon Lee ruled. HYPED for Dragon Lee/Kamaitachi tomorrow. Hopefully they get more than 7 minutes. Also really regret watching the Nakamura/Cavernario/Taguchi/Stuka tag straight.

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 (Official Discussion)

New Japan having switched more to the Sports Entertainment side of things, is the whole reason why their business has been up in this decade. Remember when New Japan was "pure sport"? That was also when their business was terrible and they couldn't draw any fans. Because very few care about that (o...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Naito, Ishii, Honma, Makabe, Yano, Shibata, Sakuraba, KUSHIDA, Liger, Ibushi (not a fan of his before he became a heavyweight but he won me over) and also Nakamura and AJ if you're counting them. There's also a plethora of other wrestlers who I think can have very good to great matches in the right ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Ibushi getting injured in the KUSHIDA match made his transition to the heavyweight division a lot easier for them to book since he had a couple of months off. It's something that really sticks out in Omega's case. I will note that this could've easily been avoided if KUSHIDA has never lost the belt ...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

I was out of the All Japan loop for a while so I hadn't seen that another Oudou Tournament show had made its way online months ago. Akiyama/Shiozaki, Ishikawa/Omori and Hino/Zeus all ruled and I popped big for the 3.1 count in Hino-Zeus. Also watched the Akiyama-Akebono Triple Crown match which was ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

While I really like Omega (despite being underwhelmed by his NJ run so far), it'll be really idiotic if he dethrones Nakamura at TNB, because by golly, he just lost the Jr. Title on the biggest show of the year. Like Gedo cares about logic. Omega magically powered up and went from having three King...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm sure they could talk him into it if they cared enough to do it just like they did Devitt. Difference being that Devitt always had WWE as his end goal. That's not what he was saying any time he was interviewed about possibly going there. It was always "I'm not sure, I have it really well here, I...

Omega was with WWE and hated it. I find it unlikely that he'll return

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

NXT (at least on a weekly basis) isn't very good but it is very efficient. They are a developmental after all, and manage to get a lot out of guys with limited skillsets. Gedo hasn't showcased nearly as much ability as HHH and Ward.

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 (Official Discussion)

Wrestle Kingdom was a bad show but a good reminder I got World for Choshu matches and not idol wrestling. Nakamura-Styles was the only good match and unfortunately didn't live up to the expectations. Rumble was fun until jadowonlol. Okada-Tanahashi was one of the worst matches I've ever seen, if not...

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

Finally watched MiSu-Marufuji. Decent match but nothing special, was mostly just them trading dull strikes in the middle of the ring and reducing selling to making goofy faces. Suzuki's Rope Hung Armbar somehow manages to be the most contrived wrestling move today. Then you get a bunch of rope runni...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 10 Card

Okada didn't progress as a character, he regressed and then went back to status quo after two months.

Only way this could happen is if Choshu got the book again.
