Amazing OP, Seabs. More people should check out NJPW, for real. Such a great in-ring product. For the last couple of years now, they have been the best wrestling on the planet, in my opinion. I'm not a real big fan of the undercard. The cards are always stacked at the top end but with the shows being 4-5 hours long, it's pretty easy to skip the first two hours & not really miss anything.

I'm watching a show tonight with my buddy when he comes over after work, actually. The 41st anniversary show from 3-3-13.

I'm watching my first NJPW show (Wrestle kingdom 7) and i love it! I have some questions considering the NJPW:

- Not every show is broadcasted. How important is it to follow the results? Are there many title changes in these non-broadcasted shows or are the biggest matches held in the big shows?

- Does the NJPW use it's own roster most of the time or is there a lot of quests in the tours?

- Are there any gimmick matches?

Everything of significance is televised. The other shows are essentially house shows.

There's some guests but not a lot. Their own roster is very much the core of every show. A CMLL guy usually comes over per tour because of their partnership and I guess you might consider Ibushi an outsider. Marufuji is an outsider who came in for the last PPV too but it's not a regular thing. The core roster is very much the core.

Gimmick matches aren't as standard in Japan as they are in the US. I can't even remember the last time New Japan did a gimmick match actually. I guess it depends if you consider Tanaka's formulaic match to be a hardcore match as he does the same shitty table spot every time without getting DQ'd.

I should probably update the OP a little when I get time as I'm guessing it's slightly outdated by now. 90% of it and the profiles will still be valid though.

Tanahashi and Devitt at Destruction was a Lumberjack match: that's gimmick, right?

The shows in New Japan have stellar this year. I haven't seen the BOSJ yet mainly because of grad school.

I kind of hoping they get English subtitles soon. I am curious to what is being said during commentary, promos, and interviews.

Watch every ppv of course but don't miss out Invasion Attack and especially the G1 Climax tournament. Some of the best wrestling you'll see this year.
