I like how 2 Japanese people winning 2 Royal Rumbles only merits top-line coverage on the front page of the leading wrestling magazine in Japan.

Reminder that the next New Japan Cup show timing is a bit weird for those in the eastern US or Canada as it starts at the exact moment the clocks change from 2 to 3. Take advantage of the early start (11 PM for those on the west coast) and watch. Naito vs. ZSJ looks like the best Cup match on paper tho the undercard's a bit weak with Suzuki and Naito taking the night off and no Ibushi teaming with the BC as his cup match is tonight



NEW JAPAN CUP
March 11th at 2:00 EST/3:00 EDT/8:00 GMT
Baycom Gymnasium, Hyogo


Yuji Nagata and Tomoyuki Oka vs. Ren Narita and Tetsuhiro Yagi
Shota Umino vs. El Desperado
Elgin, Juice, Finlay, and Henare vs. Bullet Club (Fale, Yujiro, Chase, and Loa)
CHAOS (Goto, Ishii, and YTR) vs. Suzuki-gun (KES and Kanemaru)
Hiroshi Tanahashi and Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Suzuki-gun (Taichi and Takashi Iizuka)
CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada and Chuckie T vs. L.I.J (SANADA and BUSHI)
New Japan Cup Rd 1:YOSHI-HASHI vs. Kota Ibushi
New Japan Cup Rd 1:Tetsuya Naito vs. Zack Sabre Jr.

Orienteering with Napalm Death?

Napalm Death is super left wing so it's not surprising he'd call a move that even if it is a name of Stewart Lee routine

Yeah it was more the Orienteering when I first saw it, then I remembered that it was a sport and reread the word and it was not what I initial thought it was coupled with napalm death. Looking up the Stewart lee thing helps explain it.

My bad.
