Final Gate 2013 looks very nice indeed. Yamato & Doi vs SHINGO & Tozawa?

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

Surprised the IC Title will Main Event. It's their biggest and most important show of the year so it should be natural that its main evented by the World Champion Okada against Naito. I wonder how close the voting for it was.

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

I posted this in another topic which was a response to Nakamura/Tanahashi main eventing over Okada/Naito, but does anybody really wish they would of done Okada/Nakamura, sort of like a winner takes all match like Hogan/Warrior? Both titles on the line, you could of planted the seeds of Chaos sort of falling apart in the process, two guys fighting for "leadership" - plus to me those are your two biggest stars at the moment.

Eh, maybe that's the plan for WK9 - I'm pretty slow on the uptake so I know you guys who have followed this company for a while probably have ran that thought through your heads. I mean the thought of that match being done that way makes me nut myself.

20,422 for Tana/Nakamura
11,886 for Okada/Naito

I don't know why anyone thought anything different would happen. Naito's been given shit all to do after his G1 win and it's been over 2 years since Tanahashi and Nakamura had a singles match.

As for Okada and Nakamura there's been no built at all to it. Tanahashi is by far the biggest star out of the Aces that New Japan has too so it wouldn't be a match between the two biggest stars. That's the main event you are getting this year. Or if you believe Okada is bigger than Nakamura well Okada/Tana has been done to death to the point where we have Tanahashi not being able to challenge for the belt as long as Okada has it. You'll get your match in 2014 or at WK9.

Okada Vs. Nakamura is what I've wanted to main event WK9 for at least six months now. Nakamura is the best in the company when he's on, and he's been knocking off high-value challengers all year. Title Vs. Title would have been great, and their singles match from the 2012 G1 was one of my favorites of the year. I'm sure they would have delivered in the spotlight.

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

Naito/Okada not main eventing leaves a bit of a bad taste but not a surprising one. Whatever. Top 2 matches aside I'm super eh on the card. Doesn't look like Ishii will be on the card as he's unlikely to be an X and and he was Yano's partner on Sunday. Fuck that shit. KES vs Anderson/Gallows is a strange pairing too but the match should rule.

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

This is a HUGE bitchslap to Okada. Like, ANDRE THE GIANT level of huge. They better turn this into a storyline with Okada going rampage/jelaous on Nakamura.

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

It's not really a bitchslap to Okada considering he main evented Tokyo Dome last year and just about every Sumo Hall show this year. It is to Naito though.

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

IC Title main eventing? Not surprised really but disappointed. Also, with Tana/Naka being the main event, expect LolTanawins.

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

Yeah, if this is an indictment on anybody, it's on Naito. This is very different from Punk not being on PPV main events because of Cena. This is the fans choosing the Tanahashi/Nakamura match over your big moment.

Though, if I can speak for myself, I blame seniority, charisma differences (on average), and... well, it's been a while for both matches, but while one gained momentum, the other one got hampered by Naito's injury (worst time to get an injury in a long time, IMO).

This wouldn't have been so much of a problem if the IC title wasn't on the line. That just makes it feel weird, so expect either a Naito (complete) heel turn, or a jealousy story line (as mentioned before).
