Nagata is the best New Japan dad, but Kojima is the cool uncle who takes you for ice cream when your dad is being too hard on you.

Man has a point, ice cream is always being eaten. I wonder if he yells bakayaro before diving into a sundae the size of Ke' Monito.

I might be headed to Japan before too long, are there any big show coming up in the next few months? I know Dominion is usually a big deal and the G1 obviously, but I was hoping for something before that.

sakura genesis in early april, fantasticamania this month and part of next month with new japan cup and the new beginning in february. march is kind of dead.

Koji was the reason I watched nearly all of KUSHIDA's vlog thing on njpwworld., guy cracks me up.


Cranky Uncle Yuji is my fav NJPW elder, next to Gedo.

Ah, you can pick up a Suica card at Tokyo station (and any shop I think?? ) and you can use that like an oyster card on the subway, but also in shops to pay for things, and the vending machines on the street accept them too, in case you run out of notes or coins. When I spent my last 100y in the SEGA arcade by my hotel I was glad for this haha.
I also got the roundtrip ticket for the Narita express to take me from the airport to Tokyo station, which you can get for a bit cheaper if you are a foreigner and show them your passport when you buy.
I stayed at the Tokyu Stay in Suidobashi, which is right across from the Dome, and it cost me just under 40,000 yen for 4 nights incl. breakfast. My room had a microwave, mini fridge, washing machine, safe and free slippers. That's about 300, I was v happy with my room and you pay on arrival so you can reserve it right away.

I'm currently feeling very angry trying to book the same amount of days in London for Comic con rn...

I crammed in as much as I could in just around Tokyo but still got nowhere near all the things I wanted to do.

According to Killing the Town, Kenny Omega pushed for Don "Cyrus/The Jackyl" Callis to get the gig. He might push even harder now that Corino won't be there.

Jerusalem

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.


Kenny appeared on the latest Talk is Jericho (with Cyrus), thought it was recorded before the Tokyo Dome show. He has a lot of interesting things to say about how he got to Japan (and New Japan) and how he was booked, their ideas for his character, his interpretation of that idea etc and then the insanity of the last year after AJ left and how he frequently paints New Japan into a corner by promoting fights/matches they haven't booked.

I was listening to Cornette talk about the omega vs okada match and man I know it's old hat at this point to bitch about corny but dude really needs to update what he thinks about wrestling. Like first of all he spends 10 minutes bitching about omega no showing a show a decade ago. Then he rants about the ddt stuff, and when he finally gets into reviewing the match it's him saying there is too much selling and the match should have ended in a count out after the table spot. A count out on their biggest show of the year for the title in the main event. I'll give him credit for giving the match some credit but come on.

Yeah this is what I was talking about. I love how mad he gets about them doing stuff by the broadcast booths and trying to "knock the show off the air" it's like come on dude. I'm pretty sure the large company not being run inside of a chrurch lobby in the middle of nowhere is going to be ok and probably has some plans for technical difficulties.

I'll let you guys in on a secret, Cornette is putting on a character because he thinks if he poo poo-talks the Young Bucks and Omega enough it will generate interest in some kind of feud but Omega and The Young bucks have been approached by Cornette before to do some work together and they don't like him at all.

Considering that a feud with Jim Cornette would be a step down for them I don't blame them

Oh yeah I know that, and like I said it's old hat at this point to complain about what he says. But he still is an entertaining personality so I feel like it's worth talking about the silly things he says.

Edit: In lighter news, Tanahashi is an official New Japan Dad and has his own Young Boy Assistant in Oka which sounds like it would be hilarious to watch

Is an affair really something one would get buried for?

I don't know a ton about NJPW but Shibata is one of the three people I try to see whenever I can. (Ishii and Nagata are the others.)

Also, given that that's the stuff I'm into, anyone got some good youtube recommendations? NJPW or otherwise? I wish there was just a separate show for just the NEVER Openweight title so I could watch dudes go to war on the regular.

Big time. It's one of those cultural things where you can see your career seriously get derailed for a time. If you're young enough then you can bounce back from it, but Shibata isn't exactly young.

You're more likely to get buried for allegations of having an affair for example than you are are for allegations of domestic assault.

it's not really a privileged style in Tanahashi's NJPW. Shibata is a holdover from a different era (and even he works significantly differently than he did 10 years ago).

I mean, there's like two dudes that do kickmurder these days in the main scene. Ishii and Shibata, and Ishii is more...headbutt and eating you murder. None of the newer kids are doing it
