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

What Meltzer has to say:

There is a major shakeup in Pro Wrestling NOAH. We don't have a lot in the way of details right now but should have more as the night goes on.

The gist is that Kenta Kobashi was fired, apparently because his salary was so high and the company is in such financial distress. Right now the rumor is Jun Akiyama, Go Shiozaki, Kotaro Suzuki and Yoshinobu Kanemaru and others may not sign their contracts for 2013 out of loyalty to Kobashi, who along with Mitsuharu Misawa, were the two people who really built the company.

The potential fall of NOAH only opens my mind to where the talent of the promotion will go after it. Including the loyal talent like Morishima & KENTA. Those guys outside of NOAH would be surreal.

If NOAH ceased to be altogether I would guess that a few guys would get together to put something new together ala Tajiri's SMASH or Kensuke Office. Barring that past Marufuji probably finding a quick gig in New Japan I have no idea where any of these guys go. Got a weird feeling that KENTA would end up in Dragon Gate but beside my gut I have no reason to think that.

Allow me to translate:

Logic d. Pro-Wrestling NOAH via Burning Exodus (Kobashi, Akiyama, Shiozaki)
LMAO!

R.I.P. NOAH. I guess it's time to see which promotion will rise up next



Marking for: Roman Reigns

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

Holy shit. It was obviously going to happen soon, but I didn't see Kobashi getting fired.

Agree that the thought of some of these guys (Go, Akiyama, Suzuki, Nakajima, Morishima etc) wrestling out of NOAH is awesome. It's just my personal bias but I really want some of these guys in New Japan, NOW! They're being wasted in NOAH as it is.

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

Wow, NOAH! You used to be my favorite fed in Japan, but firing KOBASHI just like that is just too much. Fuck you! Major FUCK YOU! That's it, I have few shows downloaded, and I'm gonna watch those, but I have no intention to follow them in 2013 whatsoever. Glad to see Akiyama, Go and Kotaro being loyal to Kobashi. That's class.

Options for Team Exodus:

- Diamond Ring: the most likely option, Kenskay is great friend to those guys, and this is a chance to build D-Ring
- ZERO1: they're gonna wrestle more often here, I reckon
- AJPW: this is very possible, Mutoh is such a suave businessman, and he will waste no time, he's gonna try to sign them ASAP

Logical areas to visit. K-Office/Diamond Ring & SMASH getting some more talent boosts could really put them in a strong position to rise up. Especially K-Office. Go from being purely developmental to more of a full time promotion.

KENTA in Dragon Gate would be beyond surreal. And odd. Not gonna rule it out. Who knows what could be in store with the fall of NOAH.

Absolutely. I wanted one.

I wonder if any of this talent would think about AJPW too. I know I'd be open to it. They could use some new faces over there. It would peak my interest. NJPW is obvious. I'd go ape for the majority to start working there. That roster is stacked as it is. Could be the ultimate dream match destination with this turn of events. KOBASHI AT WRESTLE KINGDOM~!

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

The big guys will go All/New Japan. Hopefully not too many of them go New Japan because their roster is immense enough and doesn't need too many heavyweights adding to it. They need the Juniors though. All Japan is the next best option but they aint too good financially either so they'd be limited on how many big contracts they could add to the roster. They're the only 2 promotions who tours full time with the type of budget that could bring some big names in. Guys like Suzuki and Shiozaki wont just work ZERO-1 or Diamond Ring shows for example because there isn't enough money in it for them. Besides Diamond Ring have only had 2 televised shows all year so that's not an exclusive option for anyone. Wouldn't expect many of the Jr.s to end up in Dragon Gate besides maybe Ishimori if he follows. There'll probably be enough guys left behind for them to carry on for the short term holding on to whatever's left. It's not surprising, promotions don't just suddenly implode and this has been coming for a long time.

Ishimori for Dragon Gate. Right right. I can see that. If anything, I'd love him to be picked up by NJPW for their Juniors division.
