Well that's.... a good run of cards.

It's almost like I expect one bad card due to law of averages but Gedo and Jado just don't care about that rule.

could be making it up but i'm sure YTR does the RVD mannerisms because he beat him on one of the TNA/NJPW crossover shows somewhere between 05-07 maybe one of the tokyo dome shows, and then stole the gimmick and continued to use it for 10 years

e: ok 2011 and he lost but still stole it

It's not that kind of test.

Man September 7th is a long time away.

On the plus side my NJPW withdrawal has led me to check out the archives a bit. The two recommended Vader matches I've watched so far were disappointing, but Liger vs. Sano was good and shockingly violent for what I expected in a jr. match from 1990.

I love that ZSJ has included Labour as his Faction affiliations.

I hope YTR punched him in the dick at least.

Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA

Those cards feel a bit middling to me, only a couple exciting match ups per card.

Ladies and gentlemen,
start your engines.



It's cool that my first live NJPW experience is gonna be Kenny defending the US belt against Juice and all, but part of me was hoping that Tana/ZSJ would be Kobe's main event just so I could be the one hapless foreigner in a ZSJ shirt surrounded by a sea of GO ACE

Thauros posted:

yep, I assumed Okada was gonna face EVIL there and they'd go back to having an IWGP title match on that tour. You'd think they'd want a non all gaijin title match on that show for additional support

So that would mean the Evil match is the only IWGP title defense left this year. Kind of surprised, but Okada's earned an easy schedule the back half of the year so it's fine. This is their soft off season now anyway.

As for the Kobe show, here's hoping for a good house but that seems like a tough sell. Juice has momentum and he's cool, but headlining a 6000 seat show? Seems quite early for that. Would be a major feather in his cap at this stage in the game if that somehow sold out though.

Suzuki and KUSHIDA are missing the Kobe show to work the ROH show. I think this is the first time Suzuki wrestles in the USA? I know he wrestled in the UK last year but I can't find any record of him wrestling in the US.

Minoru Suzuki heads to the US so he can bully Ken Shamrock some more. And maybe work a Ring of Fascism show.

It's in Las Vegas. For whatever reason, it's only been announced on the Japanese NJPW website, and not their English website or ROH's site.

ROH is Sinclair, and Sinclair is trying desperately to become State Media by locking down local news markets so they're ideologically compatible with Trump's strongman policies.
