Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Guess Akiyama decided he wanted to pull a Gedo move. You can give Miyahara that accolade all you want, but me scoffing it off next to Kawada is just something I'm gonna be doing.

Hellboy though. All about that debut.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Business being stagnant, or maybe even in slight decline, should probably be a sign that you shouldn't go for record breaking runs with your guy at the moment.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

I mean, Akiyama got demoted from president because he wasn't trying to expand further. This is just further indication of it as a booker. Also it doesn't help that Miyahara is practically their only draw. I still think they need to go all in on someone. Jake Lee was hot for the Champion Carnival. They could go back to that for the Royal Road tournament.

Jake Lee wasn't hot for the CC. He basically killed his own push with his performance. Which wasn't bad by the way, but it was never the "I'm next in line" leap that it had to be. And the fans didn't take to him as the next star either, he was kinda over but not "kid's got next" over. If they really want to give Kento 3 or 4 more successful defenses, Lee still got time to turn things around I guess.

Nomura came out of the CC as a bigger star, which I think was why he got a more consistent push out of it. And why he should've won that title match as he was the only legit new option All Japan has at this point. 1.3k at Korakuen ain't bad either for AJ.

This also goes back to the bizarre booking the TC had in 17' and 18' with a bunch of short (crazy short in 17') title reigns that lead up to Zeus finally getting the strap...only to lose it in less than 90 days.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

I’ve been finding AJPW kinda stale lately, whereas I think NOAH is on the upswing, I really enjoyed the N-1 Victory (check out Nakajima/Michizuki, Marufupji/Sugiura, Kenoh/Mochi) and we still have to see the two final shows with Kenoh/Nakajima, Sugiura/Go, Sugiura/Kenoh, on the Osaka show there are Sakuraba, Marufuji and Mutoh too which is cool.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

I thought Ben-K's defense against YAMATO was as dull as dirt, so I hope this one's a lot better. Ultimo Dragon has now joined the DG roster full time as well.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

Ultimo signing is massive. It's all come back around to this. Losing the wrestlers Dragon Gate did over the last year, then by 2019, Ultimo Dragon comes home. Kind of hoping for him to make a faction and call it something with Toryumon in the name.

Maybe he will. R.E.D has made him their new target and Ryo Saito, Super Shisa & K-Ness (as Darkness Dragon) ass came to his aid and will team with him against R.E.D at the October 8. show. So there could be a chance.

Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

The Oudou Tournament started today for All Japan. Jake Lee and Naoya Nomura both advanced. Here's the bracket:



Also we have a new ZERO-1 Champion. The show drew 857 in Korakuen but Hino/Sekimoto didn't main event, which is an odd choice if you ask me
