  1. Liked the main event, but hats probably due to the fact Asuka won. I’m thinking we’re getting a Rousey-Flair-Lynch three way at WrestleMania.
  2. The match you’re referring to happened in the 80s I think. Inoki vs. Vader where Inoki took that German was on the 1/4/96 Tokyo dome show.
  3. https://411mania.com/wrestling/all-japan-promoter-owner-motoko-baba-passes-away/ Motoko Baba (Giant Baba's wife) has passed away.
  4. Is it just me, or have WWE actually gotten the bug guy push to be accepted with Braun Strowman? I've been hearing though that WWE thinks Baron Corbin has a much better upside, or so WOR says. Braun though should be a main eventer. As someone said, the real main event for next year's WrestleMania should be Roman vs. Braun. The crowd alone for that match would make it worthwhile.
  5. The Destroyer basically was the start of gaijin being accepted as faces, and the Funks completely destroyed the concept in the late 70s. Hansen was also a gaijin that got cheered, but the Funks were super over as faces in the late 70s and early 80s. It might have tapered off a bit when Terry had his first retirement though.
  6. He never took it down for some reason. I used to download all my AJPW videos from there all the time. I might have to create a YouTube account and upload all of them. I have over a 1000 videos. Some of those I downloaded off YouTube. Then again, I'll probably get copyright dinged. I think the http://ditch.lcwe.com URL still works. Check that.
  7. Is it just me, or has Kawada not aged well? Maybe that has to do with the weight loss.
  8. This might be of some interest. http://theditch.biz/misawa.html
  9. Makes me wonder how much that Argentino court case will overshadow the remembrances
  10. The IWGP heavyweight tag belts will be defended against the Tag League tournament winners if recent history is any indication.
  11. Should remind everyone that the Viernes Espectacular CMLL show tonight is starting later due to Mexico ending DST earlier than the US.
  12. Same here. If Cavernario picked up English, which he seems to be doing, he'll be straight. I hear he's studying accounting in university so he'll definitely be set for after wrestling.
  13. I'll have to check these out later. I'll retract my ground game needs work comment on Volador though. I agree with you on the execution but no payoff critique on Volador.
  14. I find it interesting what you say about Volador. He's a very excellent flyer. But from what I've seen of him, his ground game needs a lot of work. But what do you means when you say "bring out the worst tendencies of anyone he's wrestling"?
  15. Which one is which? Can you explain the CMLL fiefdoms? Just for those of the uninitiated.
  16. Well, I figured that. They seem like the sponsors hired them and not the company itself. Do you happen to know their names at all?
  17. Perhaps the ring girl regulars don't fraternize with them as much.
  18. I think they hold up the fall cards for the Friday shows as well. They give off the vibe of they really don't want to be there.
  19. Have to keep in mind that other countries have different laws. Japan is really strict when it comes to weed as mentioned. Sydal's career in Japan is pretty much done.
  20. So I wonder if all of the Negro Casas homoerotic stories are true? Considering the looks on Dallys...
  21. So did I miss anything, other than the cruiserweights?
  22. Over-enthusiatic Liger is awesome. I think it was during one of the Takahashi matches he was going all Attitude era Lawler commmentary with Yujiro's chick at ringside.
