Would make sense if O'Reilly is going to NXT since my understanding was he was slated to move up to heavyweight, so ZSJ could fill that spot. The junior division is so stacked right now anyway, and I kind of like the idea of him at the NEVER level working with guys like Ishii.

Is there any reason Taichi is teaming with Kanemaru instead of Taka now or is mixing up tag teams in stables like that normal?

Desperado got hurt and they replaced him with Taichi then the team of Taichi and Kanemaru beat RPG Vice to earn a shot.

crashed early and misssed the card announcements.

Everyone assumed ZSJ wasgoign to be the one to beat Shibata for the RevPro belt when it was assumed the matchwould take place in England. Not sure if that's still the case with a jr making his debut now.

Another possibility would be Suzuki as he's working across from Shibata on the next Korakuen just as he did the Makabe show.

have a hard time believing they'd push a guy who looks like that as a heavyweight

Not shocking given the recent booking but it's still weird to see Tanahashi in such a secondary place on a poster compared to Okada and Naito.


Spermgod posted:

yeah he could probably bulk up and go to heavy in the future but I can't see that now. They're placing a greater emphasis on the jr div post raid anyway and nothing wrong with having a stacked BOSJ.

Same but that is what he has told people.

At least Devitt was shredded and had a bodyguard/faction.

Thauros
Jan 29, 2003



Yeah and even Devitt was never really promoted out of the jr division. His win over Tana (due to heavy interference) and IWGP title shot against Okada came while he was still jr champ and the guy he put over on the way out ended up being Taguchi.

So, I'm going to be in Japan when Sakura Genesis happens. I'll be in Hiroshima when it happens so I'm not flying up to Tokyo to see it but are there sports bars or something that'll be showing it like you get with WWE shows in the US/UK?
