  1. .I think NJPW might be seeing AEW as another UWFi and expecting it to fold, then they bring all the guys back to put new stars over. AEW should just embrace the infamy and work with NJPW's competitors and try to bring them up, or go after some NJPW guys like SANADA.
  2. He had a great run in the New Japan Cup this year and got over with the NJPW crowd. He's been splitting commentary and wrestling until he got hurt this summer. He was on one of the hottest streaks of his career until the injury. I suspect he'll be part of WK this year in a 6-man match or rumble.
  3. A big reason why I don't want AEW Punk is it will kill any chance of AEW Colt. Colt > Punk in 2019.
  4. It was Lance Storm who always ate there, do they even have Cracker Barrel in Canada?
  5. How much of a draw would Kenny and perhaps other AEW talent be for DDT? Would it be enough to get them to a clear #2 in Japan?
  6. You put it on week 1 TV to steal the show. That show is just as important as any of the PPVs.
  7. Col.Debeers could work , have him be a white nationalist in a Truth Commission type unit. stuff like Duke the Dumpster wouldn't work today.
  8. AEW is just running Wed, they're going to need AEW House Shows on the weekends if they don't partner with folks. I think they'd be better off partnering with indies to scout talent.
  9. Having big stuff happen at house shows will make AEW stars more of a draw on the indies, help the indies, and while it will get spoiled, it will make AEW seem less predictable, which is something you really need to succeed these days.
  10. Sinclair subsidizes ROH- as it provides them cheap TV. It's part of what keeps them afloat- and part of what kept them from being too ambitious a few years ago.
  11. MLW had him in for at least a one-off. Had a really good match with DBS Jr.
  12. Even if AEW stops being able to get sellouts in the biggest markets, there's going to be a lot of secondary markets like here which will lap up AEW. I could see them being able to draw say, 7,500 to the Greensboro Coliseum. That's not bad.
  13. If DOUKI is really no longer with NJPW, he might be a decent friend for Davey Boy if he ever needed one due to the Suzuki-Gun connection. DOUKI would be a good fit in MLW. Saw a comment that kinda made sense to me- MLW might be the new World Class in how it is, there seems to be a bunch of similarities. Contra is like Devastation Corportation, and we have Von Erichs.
  14. I think AEW and NJPW (MLW has a chance of joining this group) might be sucking the travel dollars away, and are consolidating the indie market. The mid-sized indies are probably going to be the biggest losers of AEW's formation, alongside ROH (but ROH may have TNA-like powers of zombie survival due to Sinclair)
  15. The one vs Minoru/Iizuka in WTL last year was awesome. Fans had a buzz thinking they might get something good and they did.

    NJPW G1 2019

    I think they get inconsistent, or they've changed her character- sometimes she acts all innocent, but at least when she first started coming out I remember her taking part in some of Taichi's antics. I do think she really gets pro wrestling, which puts her up above most valets.
  17. While I'd love it, doesn't Taichi hate traveling to the US? I can't see it for that reason.

    I'm sure Jay is capable of a plan B- look at his US match against Hangman Page when no one cared for his heel shtick there.

    Naito fangirls call me a cabron and spit at me. ^_^ I got a feeling if Shibata can return, his return will be a tag at WK , something like Shibata/Tana vs KENTA/White (assuming White doesn't go after Naito's IC)

    Zack needs IC run more than a NEVER run. Lieutenants usually are IC-level contenders, and Zack is the Lieutenant in SZKG.

    As someone who really watched KENTA for the first time- I felt he was one of the worst guys in the field not in the overweight Tongan division. He wasn't terrible or anything, but few of his matches did much for me, and I'm kinda dreading him being in a prominent role the rest of the year. I wouldn't mind using him to build up guys like Henare though.

    Naito fans think he's never sniffing IWGP again. They're at Roman wins the Rumble levels of anger. I don't blame them, and I love Jay White. I would have been fine with Jay waiting a year so Naito could get his moment.

    At least Ishii was a junior once a long time ago.

    Basing most of this on his ROH excursion run where he was a pretty good babyface. He's good looking and I'm sure he could switch up his style heavily.
