Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Great job Seabs. I hope that the article will convince fans who are unsatisfied with WWE or TNA will check out NJPW as it is the best wrestling promotion right now.

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Thanks for the post OP. Literally JUST started watching NJPW. Starting with Wrestle Kingdom 7 and am excited to follow it religiously.

Still getting used to the commentary I cannot understand - but like you said, once the match starts, the commentary is out of my mind. The wrestling is great quality. I'd love to get more in depth with the rivalries, stories, and background stories. Thanks for this informative post!

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Awesome AWESOME post! I've been looking to get into NJPW since they do so many crossovers with CMLL. That and I'm in love Muto Bear.

(i really want the Muto Bear shirt...but in US dollars, it's 59 bucks...)

He uses the GENIUS strategy of CRADLES to beat guys much bigger than him. He also does a lot of flips and is NOAH, not NJPW signed.

That he's the worst wrestler alive today and I'd rather watch 24 hours of Mason Ryan than 2 hour of Marufuji. He's got nothing to do with New Japan thankfully bar the rare guest appearance. Hopefully he got them all out of the way last year with G1 and the title match. I wouldn't condemn my worst enemy to sitting though Naomichi Marufuji matches. If I haven't all ready established my stance, I fucking hate him.

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Thanks, awesome work.

Watched a few matches that featured some of my favorite wrestlers (MCMGs, Ki, Ibushi, Romero), and devitt caught my interest from his tag match with the MCMGs.
Didn't pay attention to the rest of the company till i heard all the hype about the "King of Pro Wrestling" show.

My favorite wrestlers are becoming Nakamura & Okada (dat entrance music).
Get a good laugh from Iizuka and his antics especially when he beat down the commentator and took his shirt in the middle of a match.

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Awesome work, Seabs. Particularly love the Ishii profile.

Two little things:
One, is Low Ki missing, or is he finished now?

and two, I do believe it is 'Kengo' Mashimo, not Kendo.
