I'm already excited for this. I hope he will do similar to Inoki and have Pro Wrestling and MMA in the fed.

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

The trade off for Devitt to AJ seems good, at least. It was fun going into the ME not knowing AJ's moves aside from the Styles Clash...which brings me to another point. How can anybody take him finishing people off with the Styles Clash seriously when Tanahashi uses it as a setup for an actual finisher? I will take it more seriously if he actually does Devitt's DDT before it but it's still a joke.

He defeated Okada after Yujiro's Tokyo Pimps, Devitt's Bloody Sunday, and his Styles Clash. That's three finishers, two before the Styles Clash. Let's not jump to conclusions.

Plus, Tanahashi's styles Clash is so shitty that no one could possibly take his version seriously, anyway.

That wasn't really my point. No way he's going to gang rape everybody before his finishers in every match.

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

I can't see Styles changing the finisher he has used for the past decade. It's just one of those cases where a move is more devastating when performed by somebody else. A lot of people use the lariat, but not everybody finishes matches with it. Okada does.

NJPW matches aren't so much about sudden impactful finishes anyway as they are about logical builds to a finish of the match, such as Nakamura utilizing his knee until the opponent is finally unconscious. By ideal wrestling logic, even if you use a "finishing" move at the beginning of a match, the opponent should have enough to kick out of it, unless it's marketed as a complete killer move.

The finisher in many cases is simply the move that you prefer to use in order to put away a defeated opponent. Shibata has often used a regular kick to the chest as the finish after choking out his opponents with a sleeper hold.

Maybe Tanahashi will stop using it though, maybe not.

Marvelous

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

Judging by the Dontaku booking, one thing is sure - we won't be getting great **** matches from Styles, not in this enviroment. It's obvious he's automatically positioned beneath the Top 3. They present him as a skilled gaijin, but not skilled enough to go over the big guns clean, he ain't no monster like Vader, Norton, Sapp or Lesnar to maul through the roster. Therefore he needs major assistance from his unit to win big matches. Now, that's fine and all, I'm a big Styles fan, but in that kind of booking, you could easily put Karl or Fale on AJ's place, since your Bullet Club guy wins by cheating anyway. Don't know why they bothered with AJ in that case, because New Japan fans are way more familiar with Karl, for example. But AJ brings few more international eyes to the product, I guess, so that's the point, and at the same time the management is confident enough that domestic numbers will not suffer.
