  1. Yeah, I legitimately worry about the guy. That's all I'll say.
  2. Okay, I had to check. It's a close call, but it's ブンブン on his singlet, which is technically correct, but when's he moving, it definitely looks more like ブツブツ (boots boots). However, if he wants 100% "boom boom" accuracy, he should make it ブーンブーン, with the extended vowel, or even ブームブーム, which would appear to be the most accurate of all. Also, something tells me if it were phonetically wrong and said "boots boots", Yano would have told him, or at the very least they would make a in-ring bit out of it, and hilarity would have ensued. I'm going to give all the parties concerned a pass on this one. Crisis averted! ギリギリセーフ!
  3. The third match and the main event are both great examples of how fucking fabulous CMLL can be if the stars magically align and they manage to book matches with none of the typical slackers and/or dead weight in them. 4 almost perfect trios, if you ask me. Neither were matches of the year, but both extremely satisfying to watch.
  4. Yeah, that match was fabulous. It's pretty obvious that Kawato-san and Flyer are nowhere near the level of the other four, but somehow that made the match even more enjoyable, because it veered close into going off the rails a few times, but never did. A wild ride, and a few minutes here and there of some simply incredible stuff.
  5. Oh man, so sad to hear this.
  6. Well, I must say, I'm happy to be very wrong in this case! Wild, man, wild.
  7. As far as PCO goes, I'm holding out hope that somehow, some way, Villain Enterprises (Scuril/Brody/PCO) have a 6-man match at Dominion, and they go full-bore on the PCO entrance and schtick, and the Osaka crowd goes bonkers. It doesn't matter if the ROH 6-man titles are on the line or not (but that would be a reason to have a match), they just need 3 willing opponents who will go crazy with them. Regarding Knife Pervert II, I'm assuming at this point it's Oka coming back from his UK excursion. The British flag and the broken Asahi bottle are either perfectly logical or total ruses. So, my other guess is Mark Haskins, whom Juice works together with in ROH. Could be more storyline-driven and perhaps a case of Juice putting in a good word for him or something.
  8. Are they all from Malta?
  9. As for the finals, I'm going to assume Shingo vs. Ospreay is indeed the most obvious...and the most awesome! No problem with that if that's where they're going. Gresham clearly has the interest from New Japan, so I expect some breakout matches for him. At least, he will continue to impress. Titan is one of CMLL's real standouts this year, so they're catching him at a truly pivotal moment in his career. Matches with either Ishimori or Dragon Lee (or both, thank you very much) would likely be incredible. Maybe this tournament is finally Marty's proper send-off? He came in this way, goes out the same way. Makes sense.
  10. They've covered pretty much all of it so far, from day one until last week.
  11. If there's anyone who's long overdue for being a full-on heel, it would be Go Shiozaki. I'm sure it really suits him well. I admire Kaito for taking his lumps from two of the most sadistic wrestlers in the industry.
  12. Charisma is not a problem in his case, he's got plenty of that. The rest is a bit suspect, although it seems that he's fundamentally pretty solid. If you've never seen him, he's worth a look because he's such a goof. A good goof or a bad goof, that's up to the viewer.
  13. Indeed! Hey there, gordi! He may be semi-retired, but man, he can still go!
  14. TMDK worked really hard in NOAH, and by the end of their time there, were one of the highlights of the promotion at that point in time. I have no idea what happened in NXT, I expected a lot more...it wasn't only the injuries, they also somehow just couldn't connect. I'm assuming Nicholls was still tight with Rocky Romero, as he and Shane Haste/Thorne often appeared on Talk'n Shop, despite working for a different promotion. Thus, here we are. Honestly, TMDK always seemed far more suited for New Japan's style to me, but I certainly can't blame them for wanting to give it a go in the WWE. Mikey's always struck me as far better as a tag partner than a single, but we shall see. At the very least, it's a fresh start.
  15. When it comes to those All Japan Junior block rankings, they actually are quite accurate in terms of ranking the overall quality of the wrestlers involved. 1st and 2nd place in Block A, 1st, 2nd and 3rd in Block B, all great workers...AND THE REST. However, Okada is really promising and just starting to look comfortable in the ring; Maruyama is fun to watch and looks to be getting more focused and in shape in recent months. He's a reliable hand that they can slot anywhere on the card. For the record, I consider Atsushi Aoki to be one of the truly underrated wrestlers of the last 10 years. At times, he can be a god damn wizard in the ring. Sato is also a guy who could blow your mind if you come across the right match. He's also a bit of a loon, in a good way. Those two have been holding down the fort in All Japan as far as juniors go for years until Iwamoto came along.
