It looks like Akiyama's "Mysterious Partner" is Hideki Suzuki, as he introduced himself by that name while bursting in on a Yusaku Obata/ZERO1 press conference today. The letters "IDE" were also visible on the silhouette they showed at Korakuen.

Hell yeah. I can definitely get behind an Akiyama/Suzuki team.

Nomura vs. Nomura and Aoyagi/Lee/Iwamoto vs. Sai/Mashimo/Takeshita are very exciting matches. The rest of the undercard multiman stuff I have a hard time caring about, although I'm looking forward to seeing DARK NIGHTMARE do their act as a team even if I don't think the match will be all that good. Everything else has a pretty high ceiling, I'd say.

Oh boy, 11 Matches sound like really much. Well, makes sense considering the 5 hours this show will be broadcasted on GAORA. In the worst case, the crowd will be out of air during the last matches, which might make or break the World Tag and the Triple Crown Title matches.

In Addition, 5000 Fans at Ryogoku would be called a success in my opinion.

I know Mutoh isn't in the best health with his knees but i thought he might work a big show like this in a limited role in a 6 or 8 man tag match.

This may be a dumb question but does Terry Funk have some heat with Akiyama or All Japan ? He hasn't worked an All Japan show since 2013. I love Dory's loyalty but he's in no shape to even step in a ring. I fear for his safety sometimes.

Terry is not healthy enough to wrestle and probably costs more considering he's had stints in WWE.

I'll definitely check out this show when it hits the Archive. Some very fun multi-man matches and the title matches in there as well.

It was your standard press conference.

To the surprise of no one, Kento rocks a suit like a pro. The other NexTream guys as well but they did not make tape.

Kashin is officially Akiyama's partner for the tag league
He's also apparently being stalked by Japanese movie monsters

Akiyama seems to have a great sense of humor with his interaction with Kashin and Sushi in these You Tube vidoes I wish there was a translation. What's the deal with Kashin and the Sceptre???

Kento picked up his first win over Suwama yesterday in the build to the Sumo Hall match. Counting the royal road tournament match, Suwama is now 8-1 in wins over Kento leading into November 27.
