If we're talking about positive experiences with foreign fans, I was leaving the Dome after the first night of Wrestle Kingdom this year and there were two drunk Brazilian guys practicing chops on each other and DASH Chisako walked past and complimented them jokingly. I saw them in the Hub next day and asked them if they knew who she was and they didn't and they were so happy when I told them she was a wrestler.

BROKE: Practicing DDTs on the playground as a kid after watching Attitude Era Raw
WOKE: Practicing chops outside the building as a grown-rear end adult after watching a NJPW show

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

Am I the only one who just assumed I could roll out of bed & watch New Japan today? And then I went on World this morning & looked at the schedule & shock horror, nothing until Wednesday.

This is a dark day.

Well they did just put up a Makabe/Ishii NEVER match from about 5 years ago on the youtube channel and that's pretty much exactly what you'd expect (plus ishii doing a diving senton off the top rope to the outside in the first 30 seconds of the match) so that might quell the craving for another day or two.

It's really crazy because I quickly accepted that they wouldn't be around for a while and was fine with it, even kind of enjoying a mental break from wrestling. But now it's 7 days between shows and I'm loving losing it.

I should’ve been in Germany with friends right now and wouldn’t have been able to watch whatever would’ve taken place this week in the regular world, but since that’s not happening, in Hell World 2020 I’m doing something else instead with said friends and very likely won’t be able to watch live anyway since I’ll be in a small cottage with no electricity in the woods

Butttt who knows maybe I’ll use up my phone’s battery and ignore my friends for a few hours so I can watch some beef slappin

Pretty much. The US talent all got themselves out to LA and they’re gonna run shows out of the dojo every Friday in July, I believe, with the LA dojo boys. First show’s main event is Rocky and Cobb vs TJP and Fredericks.

(that was a facetious answer, but honestly, Rocky has never been afraid of eating pins so I wouldn't be surprised if he takes this chance to get Karl over as a post-Young Lion threat)

I'm not sure how excited I am for the Lion's Break thing. On the one hand it'll be cool to see people again but without any belts or tournaments or anything there's no stakes and it's not like they can cover that up with sports entertainment bullshit. I'll give it a go but I'm not expecing to love it.

This is a good point, but on the other hand imagine Fredericks and Cobb chopping each other in the chest a million times.

I hope it's a spiritual successor to the old Lion's Gate Project shows. Those shows loving ruled & I missed them.

Look at that first LGP show, Ryusuke Taguchi defeated Kaito Kiyomiya, Taiji Ishimori defeated David Finlay, Yoshinari Ogawa defeated Jay White, Katsuhiko Nakajima defeated Juice Robinson, Yuji Nagata defeated Mitsuhiro Kitamiya

Think of much it'd loving slap if they just reran that show again today, same matches. Show 2 had Naomichi Marufuji vs Jay White & Juice Robinson vs Go Shiozaki, & also Yone & Taguchi were in a tag team together, how loving perfect is that?

New Japan, Coward Harold, bring back the Lion's Gate Project shows.

Totally low stakes but man. Nakajima vs Juice.

I mean at least they aren't running Florida. Assume they are doing it at the Dojo and it's presumably all LA based talent. Or at least west coast. Yeah they shouldn't be running anything but seems like America has just given up on quarantine and all that.

There's a Rocky interview/podcast with Chris Charlton and he does go into some of the stuff into putting these shows on, working with local government and also Japan. He also was super shocked to hear Chris say Yoshi Hashi was in a match of the night with Tenzan
