  1. Getting from London to the major south Wales cities is straightforward: go to Paddington Station, jump on the train, get off in Central Cardiff less than 2 hours later. Swansea is about another hour but the train is still direct from London.

  3. Hah, no, that's Ishin in the singlet & Fujiwara has the pants
  4. After more than a decade away he showed up on a handful of JTO shows in 2020 & wasn't heard from again until these AJPW shows. It's strange.
  5. Dragongate are running King of Gate at present, and as they always stream the first match of Network shows on YouTube, you can watch this fun match between leading Rookie of the Year contender Takuma Fujiwara and another member of the class of 2021, Ishin Iihashi (son of Ishinriki and Utako Hozumi). It's a fun little singles match
  6. I have gone about my first 3 or 4 hours of the day absolutely convinced today was Friday. Oops
  7. The first Freelance Summit NOMADS' show is on tomorrow 7pm Japan/11am UK/6am US East Coast. They have a fun looking card Momoka Hanazono vs Tae Honma Hikari Shimizu, Rina Amikura & Yuko Sakurai vs Kaori Yoneyama, Maika Ozaki & Makoto Hiroyo Matsumoto vs Kaho Kobayashi ASUKA & Yuu vs SAKI & Saori Anou Maya Yukihi & Rina Yamashita vs Miyuki Takase & Ryo Mizunami Being broadcast on Zaiko for ¥3,500 (or about $27) I'm senile and thought it was Friday today. So yeah it's tomorrow, not today
  8. GLEAT's G Pro Ver.25 has just ended. Top to bottom a really good show, standouts were Takanori Ito vs Yu Iizuka in the 2nd match & the G-REX Title match between El Lindaman & Shigehiro Irie. Holy shit that main event. Absolutely gnarly, Irie tried to kill Lindaman. But DASH Chisako vs Michiko Miyagi, Hirooki Goto vs Hayato Tamura, CIMA & Shingo vs BULK Orchestra of Kawakami & KAZMA and 60 Seconds vs T-Hawk, Issei Onitsuka & the debuting Jack Cartwheel are all really fun. Cartwheel seemed to work better here than when I'd seen him in PWG or GCW shows, & the crowd got really into his over-the-top flippy shit.
  9. Yes, & think how long PAC had to sit out for before they finally gave in & let him go. That must have been closer to a year.
  10. I really enjoyed Kanemaru vs Zayne on night 1. It just clicked for me far better than I thought it would. Also enjoyed SHO vs Akira for what it was, even if SHO shenanigans are tiresome. Ishimori is so hit & miss, when it turns it on he's good but boy he seems to turn it on less & less as time goes by.
  11. As far as we know, no, the 90 days clause does not go both ways. This is probably not legal but WWE would sooner grant you your release than have the independent contractor mirage challenged in court if a wrestler challenged it. But to challenge it would potentially put your career on hold as you face a very expensive legal battle against a billion dollar company, which is a daunting prospect for obvious reasons. So the status quo will remain.
  12. Doesn't really matter if someone else has more of a justification to walk out when they haven't walked out. There's no hierarchy here, literally anyone can just say "fuck this & fuck you". Of course if Sasha/Naomi really want out then all they have to so is walk into the locker room and start talking about unionising. Someone will rat them out.
  13. I've been loving Yuma Aoyagi a lot. He had an amazing Champion Carnival, & whether he's tagging with his brother Atsuki, with Kento Miyahara or in a multiman with some combo of the NEXTREAM boys I will be watching. Carnival Final & his recent title challenge from Sapporo (not seen it yet) will understandably garner the attention but I loved the short match he had with Takuya Nomura, & the 3/1 AJPW Tag Team Title match with Kento against Runaway SUPLEX was great. Poor Tall Saya for coming up against a guy having the half-year of his life!
  14. I am so excited to catch up on Josh Alexander & those Ishii Impact matches. Also, someone has recorded their own commentary over Riccaboni & Veda Scott which seems bad, but this is the only version of Speedball vs Bandido from WM weekend I can find. It's a really great version of the excessive indy spotfest, guys get their time and just throw everything they can in to steal the show. It's pure overkill but it's really fun overkill
  15. I voted for Starlight Kid because she has just been great since joining Oedo Tai (although originally I was super sceptical about her as a heel, she showed me). But if I'd a second vote I'd throw it to Dax, because the Tag match with the Briscoes was amazing, follow up matches with The Bucks was a lot of fun and he's taken every chance he's had in singles matches and proven that he's not "just" a tag guy, he's a great wrestler full stop who wants to be a Tag guy.
