    2014 G1 Climax

    I think Tenzan's spot was originally meant for KENTA before WWE snapped him up.
  2. Is this sort of thing encouraged? Are they expected to go to bars and bring women home? Do female wrestlers do this sort of debauchery as well?
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTBn8CVPE94Nakamura is now one of top wrestlers in Japan, Yamamoto/Yoshi Tatsu is now in WWE and Taguchi is still about, but what ever happened to Nagao?
  4. YouTube is your best bet. Channels like JoshiHub, Joshi Shows and purowookie upload a lot of the new stuff as well as classics. And there are plenty of other channels that have the essential Joshi matches.
  5. Hey, I've been doing my absolute darndest to get more people to check out Joshi, they just never seemed interested...
  6. The card for Yokohama Arena looks absolutely miserable.
  7. Aside from that leap from the mat to the top rope he used to do in his junior days, nothing out of the ordinary.
  8. Devitt is going to WWE, though. And KENTA is still in very good shape and motivated.
  9. I'm praying like hell he's jumping ship to NJPW instead. I don't think I could handle WWE giving him a semi-racist gimmick and having him be a lower-midcard jobber.
  10. Dontaku consistently being the most uninteresting major NJPW show every year...
  11. I'm tired of the modern joshi style being shit on. What exactly is wrong with it? If you say too many big moves and spots then don't because 90's Joshi had A LOT of that too. Kana is very shoot and mat-based but in a way she's a female KENTA (and I'm a huge fan of his) in how she doesn't always know when and how to sell offense correctly and in doing so makes her opponents look weak when they aren't supposed to. I'm gonna have to know why you think Arisa, Io and Yoshiko are inconsistent workers because I'd say they are the most consistent going today, and even when they don't have GOOD matches, they're hardly bad. Saying only one wrestler is worth watching in an already weak niche of wrestling that struggles to gain new fans is not good, and is only going to scare people who are interested in modern joshi away. Watching modern joshi expecting it to be like what it was in the 90's isn't realistic nor fair. The scene is completely different now. Demographics change, styles change, etc.
  12. Kana. That is all. Nobody else comes close. Must get real boring watching Kana wrestling herself.
  13. Arisa is the best woman going currently in wrestling today, IMO. Kana is great too but some overrate her a little bit.
  14. Fale and Shelton in the semifinals? What a fucking joke. Nakamura is obviously winning.
  15. Santino has a wrestling school? ...why?
  16. I've always wondered if NJPW would take him in if that were to happen. He'd probably have to be a junior again since their heavyweight division is pretty stacked and he's only 5'8", but the talent is pretty much all in the heavy division. I wouldn't want to see him just carry guys like the Young Bucks to half-decent matches. Maybe AJPW would be more likely since he was originally with them pre-NOAH exodus. Maybe he'd even just retire...
  17. Arisa Nakajima and Io Shirai also had great years in the Joshi circuit. But there's no way they'd even get picked.
  18. The Yamada vs Toyota Hair match hasn't stood the test of time, wrestling-wise. IMO there was some sloppy work between the two and some questionable selling. But only a Korakuen crowd could've made this match what it was. The heat was insane and made this match an emotional affair, and a classic.
  19. IIRC, JWP shut down temporarily in 2002 and then came back in 2004.
  20. It was an amazing match. You didn't think so?
  21. Happy Meiko finally won the award after she was snubbed of it by Aikawa the past two years, but the fact that GAMI and that Saki Akai girl were nominated yet Arisa and Io were ignored just shows Tokyo Sports shouldn't be taken seriously.
