I'm sure there have been worse lucha matches than this one, there had to have been

But I haven't seen them, so this is still the worst one I've seen

STOP DOING HEROIN

I can't decide if the broken-down Villanos or Pepe Casas shambling around the ring is the most depressing part of that match

Didn't one of the CMLL anniversary shows last year also have a match where nobody on either trio team was actually able to move?

TNA has had nearly every major NJPW star come through there at one time or another.

And has misused nearly all of them. Tana looked good here though.

I looked up Tanahashi in TNA and immediately saw he wrestled Styles at Final Resolution in 2006 and it was only 10-12 minutes but excellent until it gets TNA'd. When you think about how much talent TNA had and the working relationships they managed to get, it's absolutely stunning how much work they put in to gently caress it all up.

Tana's old and broken to the point he's being a bad teammate to Kota/Kota's having to do more work to compensate for it, or risk himself at a disadvantage

Tana brought it on himself by not tagging in Kota when he was hurt and instead trying to fight off SZG due to his pride

The story is great and it's amazing that it mirrors but is different than Page/Omega

Which makes sense because Kota's partner is 5 years his senior, Kenny's is 10 years his junior. Kota's is in denial about the fact that he can't do it all on his own any more, Kenny's in denial that his partner CAN.

Also Taichi and Zack invited Kota to join Suzuki-gun and I have never wanted anything more

But for reals though this is quickly turning into the best ever example of 'two singles guys given a tag title run so they can then feud with each other'

Nagata back then was a better wrestler than all three members of this disastrous BC team combined. That said, I'm not worried about Jado getting involved in the match since it'll be over by the time he's snailed his way to the ring.

Caught up on the ten-man from this week. Not epic but it’s nice to see the storytelling. Taichi blithely punking Tanahashi on every move was heartbreaking.

Oh, and if Jay White did sneak back into the country, he’d be clearing a two week quarantine just in time to substitute in for Jado in the first round of the trios tournament.

I would be all for Jay White feeling like BC was slipping away from him so had to come in and win the Trios belts.

If they replaced Jado with Togo it'd be half decent. Gedo can still go and Yujiro is fine as a tag guy and Dick might be the best wrestler in the company.

I don't see any result other than Goto/Ishii/Y-H

i certainly wish he was but i'm not surprised.they've basically divided the japan based bc into two teams (those guys and evil/togo/taiji) and they've been kept to different feuds since that ishimori challenged hiromu

The other Chaos trio winning would be funny if only for Okada to look at his trios belt and think 'what the gently caress is this poo poo'.

I had that happen, I also couldn’t get any videos older than like mid last year to play - tried bringing up the BOSJ finals between Hiromu and Ishimori, just got a black screen 00:00 empty player, as though it’s not finding the source file but successfully loading everything else

I got the newest NJPW fanclub magazine through my letterbox this morning and it includes a photo diary from a few roster members about how they spent lockdown. Ibushi's is all him working out. Taichi's is all him playing video games and drinking. Taichi defeated Ibushi in their post-lockdown match. What kind of message is NJPW sending people?

Spending a whole lockdown working out goes against the spirit of lockdown life. Taichi is proving that just going with the flow is the key to success in life.

Taichi is such a natural talent that he can beat Ibushi without even trying. The Holy Emperor is truly blessed
