Kaito Kiyomiya will face Kenoh in the main event of NOAH's Sumo Hall show. Kenoh beat Sugiura in the N-1 Final. They drew 2600 for that show which is awesome for them.
Here's what they have set up for BJW's show so far. This doesn't do anything for me whatsoever but we'll have to wait and see what they do with Strong BJ. Elgin is facing Marufuji at Bound For Glory so tbh I'm not sure if he'll be booked for this one or if NOAH gets to him first. Who knows.
Dragon Gate comes back in November with their English commentary. Lenny Leonard is finally available and seems to be just as hyped as me.
That's awesome. Lenny Leonard is fantastic, easily one of the best, if not the best commentator today. November must be a big month for Dragon Gate to bring back the English commentary instead of Final Gate.
Also, Ben-K vs Mochizuki sounds tremendous. I thought their match at Champions Gate last year were a top match, so I want to see what they can do her with Ben-K improving even beyond then.
All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto
English commentary for Dragon Gate is GREAT news. Love it.
You clearly follow BJW closer than I do, is there any kind of backstory whatsoever to Sato/Daichi? It feels completely thrown together to me and not exactly the spot Daichi should be put in right now.
I mean, they have history since Daichi's first few years of his career in Zero1. They've faced each other a whole bunch of times over the years, and have had a couple of singles matches - were of course Sato won - but I do agree this title defense has been hastily thrown together.
Maybe there's more backstory between them that I'm unaware of, but as a rivalry worthy of a Sumo Hall title match? Nah. Specially in 2019 when him and Daichi are far from big rivals and the Big Japan vs Zero1 feud has had other participants.
Even if the point of the match is to put Daichi over, he has zero momentum, hasn't been booked as a strong challenger at all AND there's other people that should be getting that spot at this time.
