Re: Wrestle-1 thread

Hiroaki Murase is leaving. Heard rumors about Kono leaving as well, but please take it with a grain of salt.

Anyway Mutoh's role as chairman is somewhat being a figurehead, even if he gets paid from being part of W-1. A spokesman of sorts.

The new era begins soon.

Re: Wrestle-1 thread

They're alternating between 5 and 3 shows a month right now. Surely the end is coming? Well the contracted roster in general is cheap besides Mutoh and and Soya and Kono. They do keep overhead cost down by not renting many buildings or producing many shows. Anyway wrestle-1 only exists really as a ...

I don't expect the sub niche joshi market to exist in 20 years.

The King's Road guys lasted decades breaking each other's necks, so I can't imagine this will be more damaging?
Most of them workers worked in pain. Lot of ex noah and Ajpw guys are really broken down.

Re: Wrestle-1 thread

Looks like Mutoh might withdraw from W-1. Feeling he is not fitting the theme of W-1.

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

He never really paid off those debts and they increased annually. Any profit that was made in those years went to the workers or building fees. Dave Meltzer had the wrong number but it wasn't big as he said it was. They got resolved of any debt when they shut down the first Ajpw ltd in 2012. That's ...

Yes, the debts from that time is where most of the debts came from. Mutoh was fiscally conservative later on.

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

Only Shirashi did, yet it had to be done. He cleared the debts from way back when Mutoh ran the first Wrestle-1. Most of the current Wrestle 1 talent don't come from Ajpw but Tajrii's failed WNC and Wrestle-1's dojo. Only 8 workers are from Ajpw or worked there via contracts in the past. Soya is the...

Black treasure island is magazine only. The site only mentions what is going to be in it. They're notable for breaking info about business and companies debts problems and hires. Elloziam, as for teaming up with Ajpw, if they do, Go isn't the big dog in Noah. Fans don't like really like him there e...

No real interest in this card for me. Waiting for the day the bookers get sacked and I never liked Roh.
