Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

The anti-Okada Ace bandwagon stuff doesn't really work for me barring an exception. But Kento as the Ace of All Japan has gotten stale in my eyes. Just not that into him as I am a LOT of other people. Zeus is my favorite there too, so yeah, maybe I'm just bummed his reign wasn't as much as I had hoped. And he was always nipping at Kento's heels as who always cast a shadow over him. But Kento is hit or miss, even kind of always was for me when he was back in Xceed and I was like yeah, lets just stick with Shiozaki being the guy.

Yuji Hino push in any promotion though. I can always support this.

Kohei Sato vs Yuji Okabayashi for the Strong Heavyweight title has been booked for 8/25


I just said it yesterday but Daisuke's and Yuji's 2019 has been INSANE.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

For me main problem with AJPW is that they don't really have strong secondary program or strong undercard. With NJPW when I get bored by Okada I still got something happening with IC or Jr. Heavyweight titles. Their tag team stuff is way better than NJPW's, but at the same time it is mostly dominated by same guys who are regular triple crown challengers/winners.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

The tag division in AJPW is kind of their defacto mid/upper midcard when we realize it. The would be other singles championships don't really hold the same kind of weight, even if I've been wanting the TV Championship (for years) to mean more than it actually does.

Legends match.

For some reason it kind of reminds me of a match I saw from 2011, where it was I guess aces vs champions from various promotions

CIMA, Jushin Thunder Liger & Keiji Muto vs. Masato Yoshino, Suwama & The Great Sasuke
