Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

I was actually banking on it being Lenny because of that. Too bad. Rich is decent, so it should be ok, but the novelty of English commentary is something.

This lack of Kzy is

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Been I Japan for the past week and I'm heading to Korakeun Hall right now to see a Seadlinnng show. I wanted to see Dragon Gate but I got the dates mixed up and ended up missing it. I really wish I could see the G1 here but I will be heading back home right when it starts.

Looks like it'll be Rich Bocchini & Larry Dallas providing commentary.

Holy cow, so much BEEF. (and not because of the cows, either.)

Hmm. Elgin returning to Japan so soon is interesting. A note I can't deny.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

So, Hino won the Fire Festival. He'll face the winner of the Sekimoto/Iwasaki (that for some weird reason was the other finalist of the FF) title match in August. I pray to Terry Funk that we get Hino vs Daisuke again


In All Japan, Kento retained over Zeus. At this point they have to make Nomura be the one to take the belt from him, anyone else would feel deflating...

Show's been sold out for weeks too, they had to put more tickets on sale. It's pretty huge for Big Japan considering their last Korakuen show did 600 fucking people :

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Lost a ton of interest with All Japan booking Kento as the big ace in Okada-like fashion. Winning the Champion Carnival as champ and now coming off his 6th title defense. They cut Zeus's run too short imo because I felt like that was a really big moment when he finally won.

For the record I like Kento but his matches are just too formulaic at times and don't seem to differ from one another. Also this recent defense against Zeus went 33 minutes so that's gonna be a pass.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Zero1 announced a special tag match for the 8/12 show (that has Daisuke vs Iwasaki for the belt):

Shinjiro Ohtani & Kohei Sato vs Yuji Okabayashi & Hideyoshi Kamitani




It's only July but both members of Strong BJ have STRONG cases already for wrestler of the year, by gawd.
