vs. Ayato Yoshida [IMG]


AJPW, 05.05.2020
Tokyo Korakuen Hall

Final: Block A winner vs Block B winner

Block B kinda has a defacto semifinal in Lee vs Davey Boy Jr. I liked they saved the young kids match for the end though, should be in front of hot Korakuen crowd. Block A is wide open.

Almost every day has at least 1 match that sounds interesting. The loss of Nomura hurts Bock B a fuck ton though.

With Wrestle-1 shutting down next month, does a new federation form from the ashes or is it everyman for himself ?? If everyone is a free agent who is the most attractive to sign with New Japan or any of the bigger groups?

Se after 18 months and people saying Kento kept winning because he had to surpass Kawada's record....he fukking lost the Triple Cown to SUWAMA on his 11th defense. He only tied Kawada and beat every young promising guy that could've gotten over

What a fucking JOKE. Couldn't believe it when I read it this morning. Makes no sense at all. I didn't even know they were having shows with fans as it is. :LOL:

NOAH had a show at Korakuen today in front of no fans. The main event between Go Shiozaki & Kazuyuki Fujita went 57:47! Wild

No. But I only have so much space in my plague shelter.

Once I have built my rocketship, we may all start anew on Mars. Cool?

I think it’s less of who goes to New Japan and more who returns to AJPW and who goes to NOAH. As Wrestle-1 was the result of an exodus from AJPW like NOAH, although unlike NOAH it’s shutting its doors. And I don’t know if AJPW would welcome those stars back.

If NOAH accepted them, they would be known as the promotion for former AJPW stars, which is not a bad identity to have. It’s something fresh for them and moves them from beyond being known for Misawa, Kobashi, Marufuji and KENTA.

NOAH and being a promotion former AJPW stars. Hmmm. 🤔

Yes. Obviously they were with Misawa, Kobashi, et al. But that era is mainly known for Misawa/Kobashi/Kawada and stellar junior heavyweight action (at least in the West), not as a promotion for former AJPW stars even though that’s what the roster was made up of when it first started.

What I’m suggesting is that NOAH would be more firmly establishing itself as a place for AJPW castoffs, as a kind of second AJPW wave, if they absorbed Wrestle-1.

I am little bit confused by which era you are talking about. Also assume you are thinking some other company while talking about juniors in that light but I think we are way passed those times for that notion to be reality.

Era meaning when NOAH first started out – early to mid 00s.

The juniors were the other notable thing about NOAH mid-00s, with Marufuji, KENTA, etc.

Alright. You mentioning Kawada with them confused me.

I'd say any 'junior' effect post 2000 would be mainly stem from Dragon Gate but I get your point.

Yesterday Shotaro Ashino announced All Japan will be his base going forward since Wrestle -1 is closed. Should be a fresh opponent for Miyahara.
