Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Devitt
Taguchi
Liger
Tiger Mask
KUSHIDA
BUSHI
Taichi

so yeah not many and even less that are around the title pictures. Liger and Tiger Mask are the old generation and KUSHIDA/BUSHI/Taichi are the new generation so it only really leaves Devitt and Taguchi as their current generation of Juniors. The depth really shows if you look at the list of Jr. champions from the past few years with outsiders Ibushi, Ki, Omega, Romero, Shelley, Richards, Koslov all having title runs, most multiple title runs. The outsiders they bring in are great though but yeah their Jr. division is a weak point internally but they're signing new guys like KUSHIDA and BUSHI for the next generation of Juniors along with Takahashi who they already have too.

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

they are working for All Japan currently. But all of them are Free agents so is safe to say that in some moment they will appear in New Japan

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

They might use them as freelance talent but I'd be surprised to see them sign any of them to contracts and use them full term.

Do you think they will do a partnership with TNA again or was the last time too much of a trainwreck?

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

Doubtful, b/c wasn't that under the term when Inoki was still in control and his son was responsible for the partnership with TNA? New management might want to keep their company separate from anything else out there right now.

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

What HayleySabin said. They're cutting down on the reliance on outsiders too as evident by the Toky Dome card. The only advantage of dealing with TNA is giving their younger talent experience abroad but TNA barely gave them that. Not like TNA have stars that New Japan could bring over to draw.

Re: Beginners Guide To New Japan

This went up on the NJPW official English facebook the other day.

"New Japan Pro-Wrestling would like to ask you ;

It is illegal to put, on the site (YouTube etc.), the videos of the matches in the events of New Japan Pro-Wrestling, without the official approval of NJPW.
The official video images of the matches are available on the NJPW YouTube channel and the official site of TV Asahi.
Except for the above official ones, all others uploaded by the third parties are, in principle, illegal.
Please do NOT upload, do NOT watch and do NOT give any positive comments incl. “like it” to such illegal ones through Twitter etc.

Thank you."

Yup. I can understand why they are annoyed but that won't stop me from watching the full length ppvs on youtube. Hopefully they don't go all UFC on us all.
