They are apparently taping the majority of it in July, and then releasing it in large chunks. So there probably won't be a need for a thread, as multiple episodes will be dropped at once.

Yeah for sure, this is the overflow but there's going to be GDT like usual. There's only one show less for the MYC than there was for the CWC

In every dream home a heartache

I'm actually going to one of Stardom's Shinkiba 1st Ring shows on Sunday! It will be my first live wrestling experience on any continent let alone the first time I'll see joshipuro. Is there anyone I should look out for? I imagine these aren't important like the Korakuen Hall matches or any of their tours, but I'm still really excited.

Most people in STARDOM are pretty good. I'd say the real exception to the rule are the rookie matches, but I'm not going to really criticize them, since they are young kids.

As for people to look out for, Hana Kimura, Kagetsu, Queens Quest (HZK and AZM), and Mayu Iwatani are all good folks to watch.

Yeah, the upper card generally have memorable matches worth catching. Main event is probably gonna be a really good match, regardless of who's in it. They're good at that.

Evie/Dakota is a El Generico level babyface.

She tried with Billie and Peyton but WWE didn't pick her up. The likes of Ricochet not being signed is rightfully cited as one of NXT's bigger mistakes but Evie being signed then would have greatly helped with the post-Bayley hangover NXT has experienced.

You're dreaming if you think he'll pass up an 'insane in the membrane' line.

Either that or Lita will do it during the actual show.

Also looks like maybe the qualifiers from the NXT taping aren't going to be on the NXT TV show but just put up on WWE.com?

Happy to see Viper involved, the tourney needed a big girl to throw little ladies around the ring.

She's ok. She has the Nia Jax problem of being booked as a monster heel because of her size, but also not really being able to pull that off because she gives off the vibe of being too nice a person for that. That being said, her brief Shimmer run wasn't super great, but her work in Japan and England seems much better.

I was already actually planning to be in the Orlando area when the MYC is taping, so I'm going to the shows. I'm probably leaning either Evie/Dakota or Nixon Newell to win, just because they've signed contracts but haven't debuted on NXT TV yet, so it'd give them a good boost going in. Neither are really strong promos, but both are pretty great wrestlers.

Evie's been on NXT TV before as a jobber to Nia Jax, and I think Asuka as well. I'm leaning towards Kairi Sane, simply because she has way more hype built up behind her, and would probably need the win, because her English isn't that great.

Stardom's English PR team is hilariously bad. This statement comes immediately after them doing nothing but making GBS threads on Meltzer and other "dirtsheets".

quote:

While kairi wants to keep the elbow (I know that for a fact...and she said she might not be able to in WWE), but the WWE website and their creative and developmental have about zero to do with each other. So often times you will see stuff on the website that are "out of whack" with the real world of WWE. Hopefully in the end they let her use it. But I wouldn't take mention of it on the website as meaning that she can use it, when they specifically told her maybe she can't.

quote:

Kairi signed for less than she made in Stardom. And if you know half of what has gone on between WWE and Stardom (behind the scenes), they haven't done us any favors.

If I was Rossy, I would have replaced them by now.

In every dream home a heartache

I went to the Stardom Shining Stars 2017 in Shin-Kiba and for my first live wrestling experience, it was a blast. There's a lot of things I took away from it but it really does pay to see the whole theatrical experience in its proper setting. It wasn't a five star card, but sometimes all it takes is a fun time and I definitely want to go back. Some key thoughts:

- I kinda expected a lot of kids wrestling but I didn't expect as much dancing as I saw. The kids wrestling thing is okay but I feel too old watching it. The dancing confused me but this is Japan after all!

- 1st Ring is a small venue, and unfortunately not all the seats were sold, but it was intimate like a rock club show and I think it was all the better for it. I was able to get high-fives from a couple of the wrestlers and that made it all the more awesome. Also, if you subscribe to Stardom World and see a big doofy foreigner selling the moves with exaggerated facial expressions and occasionally taking photos, that's me. My wife accidentally got me a great seat. I was one of four foreigners at the show and two of them were wrestling the card. So I apologize for my big dumb face. XD

- I love the whole thing Hana Kimura is doing. She has an ice blue single contact lens going on now.

- Mayu Iwatani is way more skinny in person than her photographs let on! Also, the finish to the main event was kind of sudden after Yoko Bito roundhoused Hiromi Mimura, and even the crowd was kind of surprised.

I kinda feel bad for taking photos but the impulse was strong. Most of the photos look way better in live picture mode, so I'll just leave one shot here of Bito and Konami trapping Mimura in the corner! Go support your local promotion!

Band-aids don't fix arrow wounds


Quackenbush tried to do the Joshimania tour a couple years too early. You never realize how tiny these girls are until you stand next to them, I took pictures with Asuka and I'm over a foot taller than she is. Promotions like Ice Ribbon are a lot more about fan interaction so you'll tower like Godzilla.

Glad you had fun! You saw a weird transition period in STARDOM where Mayu was thrusted into their main star position and most of their gaijin like Kris Wolf are back across seas at the moment.

Eh, until they actually come out and say there's going to be a belt, I'd figure this is just whatever that publication is not understanding they're not going for one of the already created ones.

Or someone let slip some booking somewhere and the winner gets a shot at the NXT belt.

the MYC belt is going to look like the uk title except the mythical creatures are replaced by mae and moolah. If you can get past that it will look pretty "choice" or "ace".
