Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

STRONGHEARTS is finally coming to Big Japan

And they are facing two of the biggest cunts in Kazuki and Aoki

Osaka's show looks fucking amazing, I hope it gets a nice attendance.

Fucking Ultimo Dragon

Hope they pull the trigger on Ishida and let him and Doi win the twin gate. Kick Boy is awesome.



Joe Lanza on the Voices of Wrestling Patreon is confirming that Dragon Gate will be introducing English commentary at the Kobe World show on July 21. The color commentator will be Larry Dallas. Who is play-by-play is not known yet.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

I hope it isn't Matt Striker. PAC vs Ben-K should be radical in the main event and I'm really digging the Twin Gate match on paper. That championship was the best match on last year's Kobe World card; gonna be hard to top.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

The rumors are that for play-by-play they are looking to get MLW announcer Rich Bocchini. And that the original plan was for them to use Lenny Leonard (as he's got some experience with Dragon Gate from the DGUSA days) but that he couldn’t make the date.

Updated card for Kobe

Dragon Gate "KOBE PRO-WRESTLING FESTIVAL 2019", 21.07.2019
Kobe World Memorial Hall


- Two-on-One Handicap match: Choi Hong-man vs. Ryo Saito and "Hollywood" Stalker Ichikawa
- Open The Brave Gate Championship: Susumu Yokosuka (c) vs. Flamita
- Open the Triangle Gate Title: Yasushi Kanda, Takashi Yoshida & KAZMA SAKAMOTO (c) vs. Strong Machine J, Strong Machine F & Strong Machine G
- 20th Anniversary Special Match The Premium: Ultimo Dragon, Masato Yoshino & Dragon Kid vs. Masaaki Mochizuki, Shuji Kondo & Takuya Sugawara
- Open the Twin Gate Unified Tag Title, 3 Way Match: YAMATO & KAI (c) vs. Eita & Big R Shimizu vs. Naruki Doi & Kaito Ishida
- Open the Dream Gate Title: PAC (c) vs. Ben-K

I hope that maybe Kzy, Genki Horiguchi & ''Brother'' YASSHI is added to the Triangle Gate match maybe. Outside of the Brave Gate title match Natural Vibes is seriously underrepresented at the event.
