Re: Official Japanese Wrestling Discussion Thread

So I was just taking a look at New Japan's upcoming schedule. They have Dontaku on May 3rd but also Toyonokuni on April 29th. This doesn't seem to be a 'road to' show so what is it?

Rosters are stacked. I'd bet they are trying to create two big money shows to showcase all talent. One headlined by Naito/Juice and the other headlined by Omega/Ishii and Okada/Fale.

Long term they probably want to build up to Heavyweight, IC, Never and Jr. Heavyweight titles headlining separate shows depending on their size.

Its stretching apart cards for extra profit, like WWE having a PPV every 2 weeks. This has been their idea for a couple of years. It's horrendous for anyone wanting a worthwhile card, but whatever.

Pretty much. Pretty smart. Gives other guys some shine. Right now the roster is stacked so it makes sense while the talent is there.

I enjoyed Fale's NJ cup main event, so I'm interested to see what Okada can pull out of him. Fale can be ok when he wants to be. Could be his chance to prove he can go to that next level.
