    Which Puro Wrestler's do you loathe

    Back many years ago (like 10-15 years) I had an unusual dislike for KENTA, but got over it when I got back into puro 4-5 years ago. Can't really think of anyone I loathe these days. I do find Makabe and YOSHI-HASHI really uninteresting though. Don't really watch much outside of New Japan (time constraints) these days however.

    Those days were amazing. And to think we nearly banned her when that happened. Pretty sure Scott himself came on and apologised.

    NJPW World Tag League 2018

    Noticed Kanemitsu at ringside tonight doing young lion duties, how long as he been back doing this? Hopefully its a sign he'll be back soon after his 2 year injury lay-off. Really fun show tonight, shocked by some results but the last few tag league matches were a lot of fun.
  5. With my limited exposure to Eagles coming from MCW these past 12 months, I kind of feel he is miscast as an edgy heel, hence the trying too hard. He works so much better as a face, atleast he has at every local show I've been to. I kind of think he'd be a better (or worse depending how you feel about him) teaming with Ospreay given their history if Ospreay had any interest in the Jr tag belts. Still hope he can find his rhythm in Japan though.
  6. It's way too early to tell, but of the young lions, I really like Tsuji. He's already a heavyweight, so hopefully he keeps getting better and doesn't end up like another Hirasawa. Kanemitsu got pretty big at the Fale Dojo too. I think he's back in Japan now, but no idea if he's at the dojo again. New Japan have never announced his retirement, so maybe he is? Ayato Yoshida is obviously an outsider they see something in. Is he training with the young lions now? Thought I heard Kevin Kelly mention something along those lines last night.
  7. Hiromu is the only guy at the moment that when I watch I feel this guy is going to be an absolute star. SANADA comes close, but I always kind of wonder if New Japan hesitates a little with guys they don't develop themselves. EVIL at best feels like a future Ishii, but let's see what he does with the Jericho opportunity. Maybe after excursions, one or two of the current young lion crop will show something. In other news, apparently last night Ospreay cut his match short after a bad neck landing and was rushed into an ambulance. Hope he's okay, was kinda looking forward to him vs Taichi as something fresh.

    NJPW G1 Special in San Francisco

    Still no diagnosis (that I can see), but maybe this is a positive sign.

    NJPW G1 Special in San Francisco

    Latest Hiromu update is that he can sit and talk with conciousness, but no statement as to the extent of the injury. Keeping my fingers crossed for the guy though.

    I might catch a bit of flack for this, but the one guy I never got was CM Punk. And I can't even explain why. Maybe I could just never make a connection to him or his work? I can see why people like him and acknowledge some great matches he had (I.e. Cena at Night of Champions) but there's just something unexplainable why I just don't like/get him. I just don't enjoy his work all that much.

    NJPW G1 Climax 28, LIVE AT THE BUDOKAN! 7/14-8/12

    Thanks guys for the answer. I did EVIL and would like to see him do well, but do agree SANADA will be the star. I just found him an odd choice for the Japanese fans to get behind, but not that I'm complaining. Really looking forward to night 1 as I'll be there! Seeing Tanahashi vs Suzuki live is going to be something else. Also really curious about White vs Okada. Picking an upset win for White to finally set some internal conflict in CHAOS.

    NJPW G1 Climax 28, LIVE AT THE BUDOKAN! 7/14-8/12

    Hi, random lurker, very rare poster, but I have a question: How/why is EVIL so popular with the Japanese crowd? I like the guy, but the reactions he got on the G1 announcements were right up there with the top guys and I saw on Twitter some results from random Japanese fan polls about who they want to see in the finals, he was battling out with Tanahashi as the fan's choice to take on Ibushi in the final. I guess he could be a real dark horse in his group

    Puroresu General Discussion for 2018

    Melbourne show was probably 85-90% full (Festival Hall is generally a 3000-3500 seater depending on configuration) and crowd was pretty much hot for everything. Cody got massive heat doing the Omega terminator pose. Awesome seeing NJPW live at home and doing awesome

    Purotopia Catch-All Thread 2014

    Wow, when did Araya decide to come back?
  15. Meltzer gave the main 5 stars. I'm not sure if I liked this one or Invasion Attack Okada/Tanahashi back to back. I think I need to watch them both next to each other
