  1. I've heard it said that in 2000 when The Rock and HHH were feuding, Rock would stick to the bullet points in promos and segments, but Triple would be unprofessional and fly off the handle. Are there any clear examples of this on WWF TV?
  2. I don't know if this has been asked before here, but what are the bloodiest matches in the mainstream offices in Japan (NJPW, AJPW, NOAH)? Besides the obvious Hase-Muta and Nagata-Sasaki.
  3. Had to revive this thread. I don't watch WWE at all anymore, but this was an asswhoopin for the ages. The welts!!
  4. Wait, is THAT why I haven't heard from Koji in years? What the hell did he do? While we're on the subject of news from the past, I just came across this match from NOAH Departure at The Egg. I read on Wikipedia that All-Japan worked with them on this show. Does anyone know what led to them working together? Did the old widow stepping down and let Mutoh right the ship have something to do with it?
  5. I'm leaving this link here under the assumption that everyone here has NJPW World..... http://njpwworld.com/p/s_series_00121_1_10
  6. Hell yeah! After I watch the NJ Cup tonight, I'll definitely watch this.
  7. Saw the official Muta thread, so I thought I'd start one for my favorite of the Three Musketeers. Chono was my favorite ever since I saw him on a tape I got as a kid when he beat Rick Rude in the G1 Climax, but when he became Yakuza Chono it really shot him up in my eyes, and it pissed me off when he was treated like a ham-and-egger in WCW. Not even in a "oh he deserves a push" way, just doing more than he did there. I came across this clip of him telling Chins McMahon that the ring smells like shit, which is funny considering that NJPW is cleaning the ring in the middle of shows now.
  8. Watching Nakanishi vs Giant Bernard from the 2008 G1 Climax. Does anyone remember what this SXW was? Google searches are pulling up next to nothing.
  9. I'm digging the Tenryu love here- looks like I'll be binge-watching his matches this weekend. So I'm reading this article about TJP getting released from WWE, and someone in the comments section made mention of some backstage differences with Prince Devitt. Did these two have heat in New Japan?
  10. Sir, can you guide me in the direction of said Nagata/Taue match?
  11. I just watched Nagata vs Yasuda from Strong Energy 2003. How the fuck did Tadao Yasuda ever pull off an incredible match like this? Yes, he still sucked, but seriously, you can't fuck up a Yuji Nagata match- he was like Flair, able to carry any stiff to a passable match. And just like Flair, the crimson flows in this match.
  12. So, I'm watching Toru Yano vs Tajiri from the 2009 G1 Climax. My memory of Shin Nihon Puroresu in 2008-11 is a bit cloudy because I only got to sparingly watch it. Now, I know Yano was a midcard heel around this time, but when did he start to transition into the prankster that we know today? And was this why Iizuka turned on him?
  13. I reckon I'd start this thread in lieu of Greg Robinson being a fucking moron and getting cut by the Browns for his marijuana charge. Seriously, you're making an NFL salary, more money than any of us will ever see, and you're out here trying to trap? AND you suck as a lineman? So this thread will be the host for future imbeciles like him.
  14. I'm watching youngboy Naito in his debut match. He lost by submission to Takashi Uwano. I don't remember this guy at all! Was he any good? It's hard to tell from just his opening squash of a Young Lion.
  15. Except I doubt NOAH would use them to treat rising stars like WWE did to The Wyatt Family at Wrestlemania 32. I'd like to think that they'll be more like the NJPW daddies.
  16. How does everyone here watch NOAH or All-Japan? I know that AJPW has a streaming service, but is it worth the money? What about XWT?
  17. I feel like an idiot for not knowing this, but in the DEEP SLEEP TO LOSE match between Tenzan and Iizuka at WK5, who was it that prevented Crazee Bouzou from using the Iron Glove on Tenzan? Also, I don't know what needs to happen, but NJPW World seriously needs to start having overdubs for the themes on old matches if they're not going to use the original themes because of copyright issues. It takes away from the big moment when, take for instance, Chono beat Mutoh to win the inaugural G1 Climax.
  18. They put GOD winning the titles on NJPW World. I'm thinking that the full, edited shows will be up this weekend.
  19. I'm watching this match from the 2006 World Tag League. I'm always down to check out anything from one of the Three Musketeers, but can anyone give me a bit of background on RISE, and what matches from this faction I should check out? Also, is it just me or does Nakamura look like Goto here?
  20. I was working a local indy here in Tucson, and we all agreed that while Greg The Office Boy is totally in the wrong- Jim Cornette been telling y'all- Mercury is just as wrong for the way he approached it, because you just don't do that in the wrestling business if you want to get employed elsewhere when leaving a promotion. I'll never abandon ROH, by the way.
  21. What if CM Punk followed through with the part of The Pipebomb where he thought about taking the WWE Championship to Shin Nihon Puroresu? This was 2011, so Nakamura, Tanahashi Goto, Shibata, Nagata, Kojima and Makabe were in the main event picture, so there's a lot of dream matches (well, I don't know about Makabe.....)
