Has anyone here ever played it? From what I gather it's basically an American reskin of an All Japan game, so like there's Misawa and Kawada and Kobashi and Hansen and a bunch of other guys, just under different names. Is it any good?

- They'll start training women as well as men and add a joshi division (they already copromoted shows with SEAdLINNNG and OZ Academy and the Blast Queen title is a ZERO1 Super Fireworks thing)

Is this the same Dan Madigan

quote:

In 2008, Madigan revealed that in 2004 he had pitched directly to Vince McMahon an idea to have Jon Heidenreich return as a Nazi stormtrooper named Baron Von Bava, who had been cryogenically frozen before being revived by Paul Heyman (a real-life Jew whose own mother survived The Holocaust), complete with Heidenreich wearing the red armband with the swastika and even goose-stepping to the ring. While WWE would eventually have Heyman manage Heidenreich, the pitch was considered so shocking that McMahon left the board room speechless and didn't return for the rest of the day. The pitch led to Madigan leaving WWE later that year.

Those commentary teams are incredible. Why the gently caress would anyone think Sonny Onoo would have any place in a wrestling commentary booth in TYOOL 2020 for fucksake? And a guy who had an idea so grotesque that he actually rendered Vince McMahon silent? Jesus Christ. I don't know if Fite or DDT are to blame for this but c'mon.

pretty fucking embarrassing to watch

I'd be stunned if this was a DDT decision; they have people that can do English commentary on hand in Japan (the Chris Brookes Produce show had Haku (DDT English Update guy) and Shota (Ganbare wrestler who's English is very good) on commentary, they also have Chris Brookes who's done it before in other places and would be available for the TJPW show and possibly the end of the DDT show as well depending on card order) and based on product knowledge and ability some combination of those three would make sense.

This just screams Fite TV: as far as I'm aware none of these people have any links to DDT and so why would they go for them over people with better product knowledge and a closer relationship? Could be wrong though.

It has the potential to be such a car crash. I'm trying to imagine Sonny Onoo commentating over the Dino vs Honda match I watched last night from episode 6 of their weekly COVID TV show. Someone with absolutely no familiarity of the product trying to explain the Space Tornado Danshoku Driver & Super Gongitsune 3. Or trying to sell Yoshiko. Fite could do so much better.

That'd be right. And if I recall from Janela's livestreams, he tried to do the same with Ultimo Dragon a few years prior. I think Sonny is the middle man for a handful of Japanese vets who come to America.

Living the gimmick, I thought he was only brought in because he was a friend/neighbor of Bischoff's and somehow managed to work his gimmick into a shoot.

I kinda liked Sonny Ono being around the jobbers in the CW division, he bought a little bit of flair to guys who needed it and made Ultimo Dragon look like a bigger deal by carrying around all his belts. Too bad he's apparently a leeching dickhead that costs more Japanese wrestlers work than anything else.

What is with TJPW’s card not being announced fully with there only being a day left till the event?

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

They do seem to announce some cards in advance, but it does seem odd not to do it more often.

Just going to quote this from the latest update on https://puro.news

"Atsushi Onita has expressed interest in participating in the AJPW Atsushi Aoki memorial show on 8/15.
He also offered to bring his Blast Death Match to ZERO1/Super Fireworks but new president Aja Kong said she wasn’t interested."

Because the idea of Aja Kong just not being interested in Onita's bullshit is very much something I can sympathise with.

plz remember that it was ~ME~ who told you that everything you like is actually really not good, because I knew all along.





I didn't know Aja got promoted, that's cool

pretty fucking embarrassing to watch

Yeah she’s part of the new Zero-1 management team; with the FIREWORKS PRO WRESTLING deal now being led by Aja and Megumi Kudo with the latter also training a Joshi division for them.

The wider story here is that Onita apparently screwed the new Zero-1 owner out of cash years ago and so he’s not overly happy with him so I imagine it’s as much him not wanting Onita involved as anything.

Watching DDT's Money in the Bag show from last month (I will never catch up) & I'm 15 minutes in & all I really have to go in is the Dramatic DDT blogs summaries & it's everything that kind of kept me away from DDT before (mainly the feeling that it's a promotion that improves when you can understand what the hell is happening) but somehow it's enough. It's weird, chaotic nonsense & I'm glad I don't have to try & explain what the gently caress is going on to anyone but it's making me smile.

Also finding out that Shinya Aoki has a voice almost as rough as Honma is a real shocker.

Dragon Gate knows what the people have been missing in quarantine, and it's convoluted bullshit!

First, the main event for the August 12th's Korakuen Hall show.

The Gate of Adventure 2020

▪️Road to Dangerous Gate Special 6 Way Match
YAMATO vs. KAI vs. Masato Yoshino vs. Eita vs. BxB Hulk vs. Big R Shimizu

The six neutral corner turnbuckle will have the numbers 1-6 hidden at random inside of them. The match will be competed under survival rules, with pinfall, submission, and over the top rope in play. The competitors will be allowed to open a turnbuckle in the order that falls were scored during the match. (For example, Yoshino throws Eita over the rope as the first fall of the match. Yoshino has survived, and gets to pick first. Eita will continue in the match until he scores a fall). The number draw is the number where the competitor will enter the 9/21 steel cage match. In the event that a competitor does not score a fall during the match, they will automatically be assigned the number 6 position. For advantages and disadvantages of entry position, refer to the rules for the steel cage match.


Leading to the cage match at Dangerous Gate on September 21st.

Tokyo, Ota City General Gymnasium
Dangerous Gate 2020

▪️Steel Cage 6 Way Match
YAMATO vs. KAI vs. Masato Yoshino vs. Eita vs. BxB Hulk vs. Big R Shimizu

The 6 competitors will enter in order based on numbers drawn on 8/12. 1 & 2 will start the match. 3 will enter after 5 minutes. 4 will enter 4 minutes after 3. 5 will enter 3 minutes after 4, and 6 will enter after another 3 minutes.
As per the usual steel cage rules, a competitor can escape the cage by climbing to the top and retrieving a flag. In the past, the match has started with all 5 flags available. This match will start with only 1, with 1 more added as the next competitor enters. The 5th and final flag will be added when the 6th and final competitor enters. As the 6th competitor will not join the match until 15 minutes have elapsed, they run the risk of only having a small number of flags available to aim for.

Further rules and risk stipulations will be announced.

It seems weird that the Weirdo Cage Match has 3 RED, 2 DG & 1 Toryumon guy. Has there been a reason for that?
