China is like an extremely difficult market to penetrate. Not to be confused with Chyna.

Not really, WWE only does well internationally because they visit these places once or twice a year. The arenas would end up being half empty like in the US eventually.

Overall I'd say Japan is a hotter market right now, which to be fair... Mexico doesn't have that "huge star" seriously. After Perro Aguayo Jr's untimely death, their biggest stars seem to be El Texano... and what? Johnny Mundo? Fenix and Penta?

I legit am very unknowledgable of current Lucha Libre stars so if I'm wrong please inform me I'm very genuinely interested.
AAA had the biggest televised wrestling match this year with Dr Wagner Jr vs. Pyscho Clown drawing record numbers of viewers for a mask vs mask match.
Ultimo Guerrero vs. Atlantis a few years ago had 1 million dollar gate

WCW fans who can't let go of the past are killing pro-wrestling today. There I said it.

Re: WWE Japan...A Good Idea?

It will only help NJPW to leach off the popularity from WWE. And the last thing WWE wants is another competition. So no its not happening as long as Vince is head of company.

Re: WWE Japan...A Good Idea?

I wonder if there are smarks in Japan that praise everything the WWE does?

That'd be amazing, you know?

"Gotta make Okada strong, lol"



I'd be so happy, honestly.

Just in the storyline department NJPW is fundementally flawed as shown in this thread that's opening many eyes about NJPW being overrated - https://www.wrestlingforum.com/genera...feud-year.html
Nope. Japanese culture wouldnt put up with this shit. Just watch their shows, their movies, their sports. Hell just checkout their gameshows. Theyd be bored out their fucking minds seeing D level actors talk about wanting to win the title over and over again.

I think anywhere there is a different audience can help you try things with a character. I look at Juice Robinson, Trent? and Tanga Roa as guys that have improved in Japan.

Re: WWE Japan...A Good Idea?

well the larger percentage of low standard wresters in the WWE is pretty high and compare that to Japanese wrestlers that start wrestling at a younger age and are more athletic than most WWE wrestlers it would be a cop out to the Japanese audience to see shit like Seth Rollins ( a Kenny Omega ripoff) or Baron Corbin who is just garbage and there is the Miz ?, I say if the WWE got serious in Japan then NJPW will smoke em out of the water.

Re: WWE Japan...A Good Idea?

The thought of the move isnít really to take over Japan from NJPW itís more to stop their expansion into the US. The WWE helping say All-Japan would possibly make NJPW not send Okada, Omega and others to ROH because they have more competition at home. It seems to me thatís they did in the UK when World of Sport was announced. They went signed some guys to WWE contracts and made some partnerships and shut that down before it even got started. That would be same thinking in Japan to strike a blow at NJPW without really acknowledging them as a threat.
