I figured something was up by the way he was acting at the dome show.

I'm a fan of his so I'm sad to see him go but at the same time it's best for him because he is a shell of himself and I hate seeing people rip on him for being slow and immobile who never saw him in his prime. He was never on the level of the best of his generation peers but he had a lot of charisma and was a fun big man.

Maybe I'll reassess my opinion of KENTA as NJPW's top heel.

His twitter right now is him arguing with old dudes holding Daryl dolls, Naito fangirls giving him death threats, and all other types of LIJ fans who want him dead. I am entertained by someone taunting fangirls to come kill him to prove that they're true fans.

KENTA is challenging Naito for the NJPW Titles at New Beginning in Osaka.

Assuming he isn't murdered by a teenage girl or an old dude holding a Daryl Doll before then.

Not sure if I want to see Mox doing Okada's entrance or Okada doing Mox's entrance more. :-*

Meltz or some dirt sheet writer was saying that screws up the plans of NXT Japan but I thought NXT Japan was gonna be Big Japan minus the death match dudes?

That makes it less dumb but it's still very dumb and "New Generation of Bullet Club" raises a red flag. Is ROH gonna have their own crappy Bullet Club like their new crappy Los Incoregables?

I think it might have to do with the coverage the companies will get. The more coverage on TV over in Japan, the less space for NXT Japan there would be. I don't know what streaming in Japan is like, if it's big or not, but they're going to go with already established companies first. At least that's my thinking on it, and I could be totally off.

Sidenote: I hope "The Plumber" is an actual gimmick that Tama Tonga uses in the ring. Love to see him donk someone in the noggin with a plunger (or suction an opponent's face with the end of it).

I really don't see any channel especially network giving any company in Japan, WWE, NJPW or whoever another TV show especially a spinoff. Most of the companies are struggling. NOAH just got sold AGAIN.

https://www.tokyo-sports.co.jp/prores/noah/1708794/

It's now owned by the same company that owns DDT. AJPW is also in serious financial trouble (it always is though). Dragon Gate I don't think is healthy. Big Japan, Wrestle1, etc all have to be skating close to the edge.

Some would say this current NJPW USA Tour is lackluster but Yuji Nagata and Satoshi Kojima got to hang out on the beaches of Miami so isn't it a success for that reason alone?

New Japan wants to do another MSG show in August.

It'd be interesting to see what they will draw with people knowing that Elite guys are not going to be there. Presumably, Tony Khan will be like "Fuck off!" if they ask for any of the AEW guys to be on the card.

With that in mind, this should obviously main event NJPW's 2nd MSG show.

Officially confirmed NJPW WrestleDynasty at Madison Square Garden on 8/22.

With the Olympics being in Tokyo this summer and G1 Classic being pushed to Fall, I'm guessing this will be their huge summer show? I'm pumped. Hopefully, they can get a huge turnout.

Probably even more important than the 2nd MSG show is the news that NJPW is returning to its old primetime, network television timeslot in Japan.


Also WrestleDynasty is the same night as NXT Takeover: Boston so that raises a lot more questions about attendance. Under those circumstances, I wonder if it'd almost be better if they did the adjacent Hulu Theater at MSG that has 5k-6k seat capacity and packing it out instead of risking another G1 in Dallas situation.

I've seen a lot of confusion about this. They aren't going to be on Network TV. They with be on BS Asahi which is a satellite station. TV Asahi is the network station.

That's still great news, it just isn't as huge as getting on network much less Prime Time Network.

Well. I guess it's easy to see how dumb gaijin like myself can get confused over that.

It's still great news. And prime time network TV doesn't really equal a game changer as much as it used to do (coughFRIDAYNIGHTSMACKDOWNcoughcough)

Okada Vs Jay White, Ospreay Vs Shingo, and Tana Vs Taichi all seem like odd matches to waste on the first round but I guess they need to generate some excitement on those shows. Consider me pumped for MiSu Vs Yuji Nagata as well.


I don't know if anyone else watched the Nakanishi retirement show but his farewell match was about as good as you can get for a nostalgia guys Vs current stars match. They did a great job of reminding fans what made the NJPW Dads so great without overshadowing the current roster. Also fun and random as hell to see Tanahashi act heelish.

So after all the announcements for the awesome matches coming up in March, this happens

?s=20

DDT has made a similar announcement for cancelled shows in March, and I imagine we'll be hearing from the other feds in due time
