  1. I don't know if this is the place, but when it is uploaded onto New Japan World, the Kyle Fletcher vs Robbie Eagles match from tonight's Tamashii show was a hell of a match.
  2. They're there, just written below the photos (I.e., Rocky, Lio Rush and Eagles for Chaos)
  3. I think this might be the best place to ask, if not maybe someone can point me in the right direction, but KC Navarro has recently been announced for a local here in Melbourne. I'm completely out of the loop with US indies, does anyone have any recommendations of matches or promos to see of his?
  4. If I had a top 5 to watch, I'd go with: - Robbie Eagles vs El Phantasmo - 26/5/22 - El Desperado vs Robbie Eagles - 29/5/22 - El Desperado vs El Lindaman - 24/5/22 - Hiromu Takahashi vs YOH - 25/5/22 - El Desperado vs DOUKI - 28/5/22 And of course the final. Block B was stacked with the good match ups compared to Block A.
  5. The Sapporo double-header has me more interested than the Osaka show. Catch 22/Just4Guys team gel really well together, really enjoyed their Junior Tag League match. Ospreay and Taichi had a really good match in the 2020 G1, and I think Ospreay has improved a lot since then so this one will be interesting as an Ospreay loss could continue his further descent into madness/establish Taichi as a solid leader, and an Ospreay win could be the start of his road back to Omega. Also excited to see what Umino can produce against Naito, the Umino/Narita/Tsuji/Uemura (Oiwa too but he's obviously further down the line) I think will form the core of NJPW's main event scene over the next decade so its time to start injecting them into high profile spots. Hiromu and YOH had a good match in the Super Juniors, so I do expect much more of the same. I'm assuming winner of Ishimori/Wato in Osaka will challenge the winner (Hiromu I'd say). Still, I love Okada/Takagi matches, I would love another Takagi run with the World title this time with bigger & vocal crowds, he was one of the few bright sparks during the COVID era and deserves a real run.
  6. Posted a lot already about WK17, so final thoughts after Dash and letting things settle. Now for New Years Dash thoughts
  7. My apologies for any randomness,I've been drinking a lot tonight watching this one haha. Anyway claimed paid crowd number was about 26k, on par with the last Wednesday Wrestle Kingdom which was Okada vs Omega
  8. Don't know if it sways your decision but the Feb US show is not included in the monthly fee and is extra. But this show is definitely worth the subscription fee. Agree with TheVileOne, if there is a fault with tonight it's the stream quality. If NOAH can get a perfect hi-def stream on their app, why can't New Japan?
  9. Gino is king Having a blast so far with the show!
  10. For me, it's their attempts at comedy and pandering to their twitter friends. I much preferred Chris in the Mike Tenay role instead of a play-by-play or colour guy. Also at times I think they unintentionally bury some guys, like Wato for example. In saying that, when they're on, they're on. I actually like Charlton's dramatic monologues like for Ospreay during his G1 entrance (some don't).
  11. So Gino Gambino was at the English fan event organised by Kevin Kelly & Chris Charlton today. I really hope he's back on commentary, I'll watch in English if he is (I can't do Kevin/Chris on their own anymore...)
  12. As someone who doesn't watch NOAH regularly, I felt this show was dragging until the tag team title match, which I really enjoyed. I thought Kiyomiya vs Kenoh was a war and absolutely great. Normally I struggle to get into Kenoh matches, he's one of those guys I just have an irrational dislike towards. I'll probably stick around and watch more of the January shows if they're on Wrestle Universe and see if NOAH can replace All Japan on my watch list, just wish Japanese commentary was an option.
