I've only said "I love you" to two people - Stone Cold Steve Austin, and a guy in a dark club who I mistook for Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Side note: a friend of mine got someone into NJPW by showing them the G1 through the eyes of Yano, and he was amazed and delighted and now he watches New Japan.

This is pretty similar to my story, in that WK9 was the first NJPW show I watched - and as stuffed with talent as that card was, I came away wanting to see more of Yano than anyone else.

"Daughter of famed wrestler and celebrity Kamen Rider fan will appear in the latest Kamen Rider movie.

Kamen Rider Build: Be the One opens in theaters on August 4th and will feature the daughter of Hiroshi Tanahashi, a 14-year-old junior model.

Tanahashi, a noted Kamen Rider fan, has appeared on variety shows and appeared in wrestling matches dressed as Kamen Riders. The wrestler also appeared in Kamen Rider Heisei Generations: Dr. Pacman VS Ex-Aid and Ghost with Legend Riders in 2016.

Tanahashi’s daughter will appear during the opening of the movie as the older sister of a young boy who Build saves from the Phantom Smash. She will also appear towards the end of the movie. Tanahashi’s daughter says she was influenced by her father was a kid, watching Kamen Rider Den-O during her youth. Tanahashi himself is pleased that his daughter is in a Kamen Rider movie and asks fans to look forward to her performance."

Finally nearly caught up. I think last time I posted I was about halfway through last year's G1 and since then I've finished that, watched WK12, the NJC, Sakura Genesis, Dominion, and notable bits and pieces from other shows along the way. I was planning to watch BoSJ as well but the G1 was already perilously close and I hadn't even watched Dominion yet so I'll just save it for after the G1. I'm I think 1 day behind (possibly 2 now, depending on timezones). I don't really have a ton to say other than wow a lot of cool poo poo has happened this year. I'm pulling for my boy Naito (clearly not an underdog favorite, according to that poll a page or 2 ago lol) to go 2 in a row and finally get his moment at WK13 vs Omega.

Other than that I'm hoping the positive updates on Hiromu lately keep going because he's quickly become my 2nd or 3rd favorite after Naito. Jay White's been impressive lately, ZSJ's run in the NJC was phenomenal and I hope he gets back to title contention at some point, and Toru Yano is a national treasure.

Scooby dooby doo.

Is it just me, or did the Night Four crowd seem hotter than the previous three? In listening to the crowd, it sounds like there were some gaijin out there being a bit rowdy (not, like, disrespectfully so, just loud enough to be heard), and the natives were spurred to cheer a little harder in response.

ok i think i've figured it out, so okada is coping with losing the title and this losing streak by trying to be happier, smile more, the balloons and everything, and its like this forced happiness thats loving with him right?

so all you need to do is replace yuna with gedo and tidus with okada, and there you have the newest version of the rrrrrainmaker

I think my favorite moment so far from this year's G1 is the sheer disdain with which Suzuki pinned YOSHI. Spitting as he does it, barely bothering to even stay on for the full three count. God I love him.
