Re: VOW Flagship: XFL, Prichard, Kofi,Honor Rising, AJPW

Regarding the Miyahara/Omega comparisons, I think Joe (I think it was Joe) was right on that it comes down to exposure, but I think it also has to do with Kenny's affiliation with the Bucks and Cody. There are always going to be weirdos who hate anything involving those guys and will let that effec...

Re: Wrestling Omakase #86: Puro Blowout (Baba show, NJPW, AJPW, TJP & DDT)

I totally forgot about the aborted 2012 AJPW comeback, thanks for that added bit. Explains a little more why Mutoh tried him again in Wrestle-1, though he probably should have found him a better gimmick.....

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I went ****1/2 on Naito-Taichi, which is probably nuts but I don't really care. I absolutely loved the match from beginning (here I mean when the bell rang, as I do think the angle beforehand went too long) to end and was going absolutely nuts by the time it was over, so if that's not a four and a h...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

The battle will not be won with in-ring action. AEW will succeed, if it tells stories that build some members of their roster to legitimate stars that are must see and continuously draw crowds and viewers. And that may force WWE to finally step up their game at developing new draws on their side. i...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I don’t think Tanahashi is losing to Jay White and I’ll tell you why: Chris Jericho in his post match promo at Wrestle Kingdom said he wanted to challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Title next. He then started listing publications he wanted to report this news and he mentioned Tokyo Sports, Weekly Pro...
