The thing that seems suspicious about the visa thing is the fact that Omega flew into Orlando last year for CEO where he and Xavier Woods had a grand ol' time playing fighting games.

Look, what Sinclair thinks politically is something that I don't bother with. It's really how I approach any company. I didn't stop eating at Chick Fil-A because I don't agree with the one guy's opinion on marriage. If you really break down what you enjoy by how they agree with you politically, I just don't want to get into that end of things. It didn't work for Elaine in that episode of Seinfeld about abortion rights and I just keep away from that. But I don't blame someone if that does bother them. It all comes down to the person and how they feel themselves.
If I did that, I'd basically have to cut all US based wrestling out entirely.
Seriously :lol: :lol:

He visited family in the US earlier this year too.

It's spin/PR. Do you think it's a smarter move to admit Kenny didn't want to do the shows? Honestly as best policy or favor optics?

Tourist and work visas are not the same.

Would reflect bad on the Bucks fan wise as they are tied at the hip with Kenny and it prompts many follow on questions.

Yes I know and Visa don't take a year to process. These supposed Visa issues implies he has some sort of criminal record.

I just found it odd that he hasn't worked a US show in so long and was a bit evasive earlier this year when Dave and Bryan asked him about it. Also, I would imagine travelling to the U.S. for non-work reasons would be treated differently.

It is. If these ISSUE were so bad or acute he would still be refused.

Anyway that's all mute. There's no issue.

I can travel to Canada to visit and be fine, but if I want to go to Canada to play a show and make money then I have to fill out the proper paperwork.

Just like last year (if I recall), War of the Worlds will be streamed on NJPWWorld, but it will not be available to those outside of Japan.

Excited for tonight especially getting to see Naito,Tanahashi and Goto live for the first time. Scurll/Sydal, Bucks/LIJ and Ospreay/White are the three matches I'm most looking forward to.

Real fun show live. Highlights were the Osprey/White match, War Machine live and everything with Marty Scurll. Given everything that went down, I feel like they would have been better off flipping the main and semi-main. Like at Final Battle, the crowd was pretty tired by the main event and the three guys, while doing a good job, just weren't the right fit for the main event of this show.

Great seeing Tanahashi, LIJ and Goto live for the first time. Wish Goto had a better match to showcase himself, but what can you do?

This show was very good, then finally pulling the trigger on Marty Scurll and kicking Adam Cole out of the Bullet Club before he leaves RoH the company was great. I was also amazed how awesome the contest between Will Osprey and Jay White was. White's going to be a star as soon as he gets back from his excursion. The rest of the matches on the car were pretty cool and it was a good show overall.
