They could have chosen any name and they choose the name of a promotion that massively flopped and has a terrible brand image/reputation.

K-1 sounds cool. Wrestle-1 does not. That's all that matters.

I had to do a double take when Mutoh named his new promotion Wrestle-1. Hopefully this version will do better than its predecessor.

In wacky NOAH news: Suguira has challenged Onita to a death match. The location: Taue's house.

WRESTLE-1 is a fine name. It's not like anyone is going to get it confused with the old promotion.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

To be honest, lately I've been following NOAH more than any other promotion mainly due to so many of my countrymen doing tours for them. I gotta ask though, what the hell happened to Yoshinari Ogawa? Former GHC Heavyweight Champion, 2-time tag team champion with motherfuckin' Misawa, trained under the great Giant Baba yet he seems to be relegated to enhancement talent. He loses to guys who are on their first tour of Japan, why isn't this guy held in the same regard as Misawa, Kawada, Kobashi and the like?

I won't lie, I'm not much of a puro diehard, I pretty much know of all the name guys in Japanese wrestling history and then whatever's been going on the last year or so. Was Ogawa just not over enough? Is he not big enough?

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

It's certainly not too unheard of for Veterans to be spending their last few years working in the undercard with younger talent (hell, Taue's been doing it for most of the past decade). A respected vet losing to Gaijin is different than normal NOAH booking, or normal booking up until fairly recently, but having a smaller talent roster will cause that kind of thing.

Ogawa's GHC title win is pretty controversial; he ended Akiyama's long-due reign in under 5 minutes with a small package. Many feel he only made his way up the card due to his friendship with Misawa. He isn't held with the same regards as Misawa or Kawada because he spent a lot of his early career as a Jr. Heavyweight in All Japan, which wasn't known for its Junior division like New Japan. His time as a top card singles competitor didn't last too long, but he had a stellar tag team career with Misawa. I believe he suffered a neck injury a couple of years back due to a botched move by the late Bison Smith. Considering he's been around for 20+ years, its probably best he is used to help the younger talent at this stage of his career.

I don't have a problem with the WRESTLE-1 name as long as it's not like the previous incarnation.
