Re: The JOSHI thread

The STARDOM anniversary Korakuen show was okay, the last two matches are only really worth seeking out. Might be the best Viper match I've seen, but that's the magic of Io for you. It's seems like they're pushing Momo which is great, but Kyona is eating pins for breakfast at the moment. Fucking Basz...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

Fun chapter overall. Is it bad my favorite match was the Origin Banter Edition (still tremendous) vs SPPT? Well, aside from that weird, disingenuous "sorry for slutshaming" promo at the beginning. I'm sure Dahlia herself is fine with it, but it's just so tired. I don't follow a lot of wrestling twi...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

How do you guys think the faction situation is going to play out over the coming year? If you look at the New Beginning cards, there's a lot of guys on those shows even though the entirety of Bullet Club is missing. It also seems like they're finally using their young lions in a more regular capacit...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

It was implied to me that the NPS is going to be a bigger tournament this time, and therefore go most of 2017. You still have to factor in Laura Di Matteo, Alex Windsor, Dahlia Black and Chakara, who won the qualifier over Pollyanna in ENDVR in November. This makes me wonder the schedule Kay Lee Ra...

Re: VOW Flagship: Wrestle Kingdom 11, Roadblock: End of the Line & more!

Laughed out loud at the Roadblockendoftheline opening. Very much enjoyed the NJPW discussion. I think there's three sorts of fans online of NJPW - the hardcores, who are probably mostly into this, because we know most of it will be awesome, the anti-fans, who like you guys talked about have had eno...

Re: 205 Live, TLC, AJPW Sumo Hall, WON HOF & more!

Joe enamored himself with the BritWres crowd earlier this year but now the heel turn comes, by shitting on all the boys who made it past CWC. Brutal, but hilarious, with the compounded damage of mispronouncing Gallagher's last name (which admittedly everybody did before the CWC because the man neve...

Re: VOW Flagship: Goldberg, AJPW Sumo Hall, TakeOver & more!

Fair critiques: -The show is too long (it is) -They ramble and repeat points (we do) -Joe yells too much (I do) -They harp on Twitter fights that nobody cares about (guilty) -The ad reads are too long (not really anymore, but nobody likes listening to ad reads, nothing you can do about it, is what ...

Re: The BritWres thread (Big Daddy for HoF)

Better the devil you know, or the devil that might burst into flames in 10 minutes but let's you keep your car keys? The idea of WWE being terrified of ITV does seem a little weird to me. On the one hand they have money and an accessible TV channel in the UK, however their portfolio is shitty reali...

Re: Revolution Pro Wrestling

Sabre's had a real weird year for me. For my money he's had a whole bunch of high end MOTY contenders, but also has a similar amount of "dream" matches where it all just felt there.

Re: *NEW* ROH Thread. Keep it clean.

Just got home from the Liverpool show. Excellent venue with a great card with only one match that was actively bad (Dijack vs Joe Hendry) with the rest being from good to great. The building wasn't full with the upper tier closed but I would estimate about 500 people there. All three matches after ...

Re: The JOSHI thread

BY Ho won the tag tournament it seems apparently Io Shirai turned heel and turned on Mayu and Io also debuted her new partner in a mask at the latest show This would be more interesting if there wasn't a decent chance Io was gone by early next year. It just seems like an easy way of maintaining the...

Re: The JOSHI thread

I guess it's a moot point if Io's gone anyway, she'll either lose it in the next few days or in December. I don't have a problem Stardom using gaijin, as long as they're more like Storm and KLR and less like Chelsea or Blanchard. I guess it's more the over reliance on them, the Grand Prix showed tha...

Re: The JOSHI thread

It was rumored last month when 2ch noticed that Io started following Funaki and Triple H on Twitter. I thought it was just speculation anong the Japanese hardcore fans but it started to make sense when the WWE tryout with all of the indie women happened and the rumored start of the Women's Classic ...

Re: The JOSHI thread

Io Shirai is on her way to WWE in 2017, with Kairi Hojo potentially following if Stardom can't convince her to stay, according to the latest Observer. You had a good run, Stardom, RIP Fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk me. It's hard to think of three wrestlers that mean more to one company on the entire p...
