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

Are the Japanese fans really going to buy in to Styles? I can't see it personally, maybe that's just because I don't think especially highly of him. In any instance, them putting the belt on him just seems bizarre, but that's probably just me since everyone else seems to think it's a good idea.

new japan won't work with tna, something to do with having their champion jobbing to nobodies last time they had a working agreement and them hating vince russo for treating their guys like jokes. it's why they're coming to America and partnering with ring of honor.

if tna were sold, that should be a high priority for their new owner to fix their working agreement with new japan. both companies are similar in the fact that they have a stale main event scene. if they were to swap a few top guys to freshen things up it could do both some good.

If they were good and could transistion to Wrestling from MMA than this would be fine but their terrible.
Lulz, how is it the same? I don't see the Gracies main eventing shows or winning titles, or going over NJ stars, or getting anywhere close to it. They're undercard acts, and Daniel requested the IC title shot at Nakamura because he defeated him in a MMA fight back in 2003, they have history together. And all they did was going over Sakuraba and Iizuka, for fuck's sake. And guess what, Sakuraba's getting his win back in Yokohama, he's booked 1-on-1 against Rolles.

All this hyperbolic bitching is rather funny.

I mean, jesus fucking christ, do you even watch the shows? Legit question, btw. Do you even know that gaijins invading is one of the pillars of Japanese wrestling ever since its beginning?

The card looks pretty solid. Can't wait to see Okada-Styles in front of more than 15000(?) people!

TNA's relationship with New Japan also produced the worst Wrestle Kingdom in history. Let's all try and forget RVD vs Yano and the infamous debacle of Jeff Hardy vs Tetsuya Naito

I will never forget the legendary RVD/Yano feud that brought us YTR.

I think it depends on how he's positioned and most importantly if he can put on great matches. I don't think his time in TNA means anything to Japanese wrestling fans. TNA's international presence is greatly exaggerated.
