Finally, we have some idea who Tanahashi will make his V1 defense of the IWGP Heavyweight Title against but won’t know until 1/30 at Korakuen when Togi Makabe and Satoshi Kojima go to war in a number one contendership match. Kojima is the man who dethroned Makabe at Sumo Hall in October, which has grated at Makabe ever since. Makabe considers himself the number one contender after beating Masato Tanaka yesterday but Kojima wants a rematch against Tanahashi. Whoever wins that bout will face Tanahashi at February’s big show, “THE NEW BEGINNING”, on February 20th at Sendai Sun Plaza Hall.

NJPW, 1/30/11 (Samurai! TV)
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

1. IWGP Heavyweight Title #1 Contender Match: Togi Makabe vs. Satoshi Kojima

NJPW “THE NEW BEGINNING”, 2/20/11 (WPW)
Sendai Sun Plaza Hall

1. IWGP Heavyweight Title: Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) vs. Winner of Makabe/Kojima (1/30)

and on the US tour will also established a new IWGP Intercontinental Championship, a playoff will be held

Great cards for Fantastica Mania. NJPW needs more Danshoku Dino.

NJPW Ultimate Crush 5-02-03
GHC HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
Kenta Kobashi (c) vs. Masachiro Chono

The mega stars of 90s AJPW & NJPW finally collide. Its something like Undertaker/Sting in USA. Great psychology and epic ending. A lot better than Misawa/Chono. ****.

A couple of rumblings out there:

-Meltzer apparently said the real attendance at the 1/4 Tokyo Dome show was 18,000. After seeing a picture of the Stadium during the main event, that sounds about right.
-There is a chance that starting next year, the traditional 1/4 show will happen somewhere other than the Tokyo Dome. It will still be a large venue, but not the size of the Dome. Makes sense since they haven't been able to really draw there in years.
-Another rumbling about NOAH going under. Take this with a grain of salt as it has been reported to go under for over a year now, but business has definitely not been ideal for the company as of late (by that I mean 2006).

That is why you see a boost in the media "voting" in terms of NOAH, this year will be a make or break that is obvious. There is a big push to get people interested in the product again, and this generation just has been the hardest in terms to please.
Quite frankly with how things are I believe it will be at least another 5 years before interest even reaches a smooth peak, again, that is if it even does. That is the way things happen, interests come up and down, just depends in what people are into. Right now "combat" sports in Japan isn't one of them.

Their main issues lies on no one to get behind, and this for wrestling/MMA/Sumo all together. No real strong champions, look at NJPW for an example their strongest champion ever is Shinya Hashimoto and no one has even gotten close to touching his reign with defenses. Japan sort of needs that type of wrestler(s) in my opinion, not a one, tow defense champion, but someone who has the it factor as well.
Look at Sugiura and how much he gains with each victory. Though this year will tell how much of an impact Sugiura can bring.
Everything other than baseball/soccer sort of looks bleak now. There is a line out that no one has really found yet that perfectly blurs traditional and new, to gain interest.

Dome thoughts:

Okada looked *absolutely* awful in his match. He stunk it up anytime he was in the ring, looked weak, and his strikes have gotten worse. WTF? He couldn't even do hold the bridge on his German Suplex. Sugabayashi's comment on that he had a long way to go and that he was gonna go back to the states probably was to threaten him to get better.

Absolute highlight of that match was Takayama hitting his best Everest German in like 6-7 years, which was embarrassing because Okada totally gaffed his. The bridge and execution was absolutely picture perfect.

Other than that...

Strong Man/Nakanishi owned in the opening match and their interactions with Bad Intentions were great. Beer Money's participation in the match felt out of place, but I think their job was to bump so Strong Man could recover. Anderson: Beer Money, Nakanishi, Strong Man, Tokyo Sports, FUCKKK YOUUUUUUU!!!!!!1 Fun stuff.

CMLL + Liger match was okay. It had all the trademark spots, but it felt disjointed. The side turnbuckle pads threw off the CMLL guys and so did the lack of crowd interaction.

Tenzan/Iizuka was nothing special, just okay. Iizuka going wild during his entrance is always fun to watch though.

RVD/Yano wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, weapons covered up a lot of its flaws. Yano's extremely stiff umbrella shot to RVD's chest was hilariously funny.

Nagata/Suzuki was all sorts of great fun. Very cool opening video package on top of that.

Devitt/Ibushi went longer than I thought it would, but it ended up being a very good and enjoyable match.

Goto/Okada vs. Takayama/Sugiura. Well I already made the comment on Okada, but the rest of the match was okay. Unfortunately, Okada was in the match a lot so yeah... Goto and Sugiura's exchanges were absolutely great and Takayama kicked all sorts of ass.

I hope no one is forced to watch Hardy vs. Naito. Hardy botched a leapfrog and he was so slow and terrible in the match. At one point, it looked like he had a pocketknife in his pants and it was uncomfortable enough that he had to throw out.

Nakamura/Go was disappointing, but it was alright and what I expected it to be.

Makabe/Tanaka was intense and the ramp table spot was cringeworthy. I don't think Makabe is going to be wrestling at the ME/UpMC level for more than 2 years.

Kojima/Tanahashi was a good match. I was surprised and very happy with the amount of effort Koji put into it.

They had Borash announce for almost all the matches and it was huge error. He announced the Junior Heavyweight match as the Heavyweight title match, which caused Devitt to facepalm and he totally mispronounced Nakamura's name. He's such an amateur. Ughh....

Okada probably ended up looking worse than Hardy, honestly.

Meltzer said that there were 18,000 fans in attendance and watching the opening dark matches, the card, + Tanahashi celebration seems to confirm it. Eagle shot makes the attendance look better than it is.

I've downloaded a lot as of late, but is there anywhere I can purchase Puro DVDs from the UK by any chance?

The Best of Lioness Asuka vs. Kyoko Inoue :

JD 4/26/1998 (TWF Title)
Lioness Asuka vs. Kyoko Inoue - ** 1/2.
NEO 5/6/1998 (TWF Title)
Lioness Asuka vs. Kyoko Inoue - ****.
JD 10/17/1998 (TWF Title)
Lioness Asuka vs. Kyoko Inoue - *** 3/4+.
JD 1/24/1999 (TWF Title)
Lioness Asuka vs. Kyoko Inoue - *** 3/4+.
JD 8/29/1999 (TWF Title vs 3WA Title)
Lioness Asuka vs Kyoko Inoue - **** 1/4+.

Wow, one of the best, stiffiest and also most less known joshi feud of all-time. Nice spots, great combination of Asuka's stiff kicks and Inoue strong lariats & monster bumps!

@up - so bad, that there wouldn't be another 4/1 Tokyo Dome show...

I finally got the event as well the other day, I don't have a Blu-Ray burner so that is what it has not been capped.

But anyways I do have a couple recommendations from this event to go on my top list this year.
Devitt vs. Ibushi, Nagata vs. Suzuki and Kojima v. Tanahashi. Not sure on my ranking scale but they will be on the list.

--------
Also got to add from Zero1, Daisuke Sekimoto and Ikuto Hidaka I enjoyed a lot. Hayashi vs. Monoru from 1/2 was pretty good as well. All in all a good year so far, a few rotten egg's can be found already as well, but nothing is ever perfect.
