  1. Even his final "major" feud against Kikuchi and Kanemaru was phenomenal. Don't think anyone besides Lyger ever had so many memorable rivalries.
  2. In light of his impending retirement, just figured I'd pose a question with lots of acceptable answers: Who, in your opinion, was Lyger's best opponent? Much as I love the Benoit matches, my favorites were always his big 96 and 97 title matches with Ohtani. There was a chemistry between the two of them that really warranted a longer feud with a more definitive conclusion but I also realize they were making room for Takaiwa (hmmm) and Ka Shin (HMMMMMMMMMM...). Anyway yeah who's yer favourite guy he fought a lot?
  3. Yup, the "I'm 54 Years Old" brainbuster variation that was suspiciously identical to his usual brainbuster. And yeah they had access to enough "O-50" guys to have a decent division---Tenryu, Choshu, Fujinami, Grab Hamada... I seem to even recall Abby's name being mentioned although that might just have been a beautiful dream I had at the time.
  4. I remember in like 2004 NJPW teased a O-50 (Over 50) title to compliment their U-30 title. Not sure how seriously the idea was ever considered but I recall Tenryu being the favourite for first champ.
  5. Weird so does that mean he's gonna come in and hold the GHC title for a year again while Kaito and Kenoh get put on ice? Would have been much more excited if he was going back to AJPW to feud with Kento.
  6. Suwama vs Bob Sapp sounds more exciting to me than Sugi vs Elgin
  7. On that note, I just watched the Miyahara vs Jake final from the Oudou Tournament.
  8. If Soya had stuck around I would have loved to see a run where he breaks up Wild II and teams with Suwama as the ultimate hoss team.
  9. Quality demands recollection. I also remember the crowd being really dead despite tons of action and smartly worked down periods so hopefully they have a livelier audience this time around.
  10. The last time this match happened it was AWESOME. Thinking they'll all have their working shoes on for this one.
  11. With Jake Led and Naoya Nomura both so clearly in the main event scene, the question remains: do we need to start worrying about Yuma Aoyagi?
  12. Maybe Dradition or someone can give us Hase vs Steamboat in 2020
  13. Nice, glad to know he's still holding it down. I remember he had a GHC Open weight Title match with Gone that went like 30 minutes and somehow sorta made sense.
  14. Miyahara vs Nomura. Uhhhhhh yeah great match. I'll take Miyahara over any NJPW guy any day of the week. Contentious opinion but I also know I'm not alone. Random question: anyone know when Scorpio's last match in Japan was? Did he work anywhere besides NOAH in those last years? I always appreciated the effort he put in during his heavyweight run in NOAH. Shame he never got a shot against Kobashi during Kobashi's monster run.
  15. Nomura pinned Miyahara again today in a six man. Dunno if this means he's winning the Cup or just getting a title shot before the tournament or if it's just AJPW randomly beating Miyahara. I feel like Nomura could credibly hold the belt now in any case. Feud with Jake Lee while the new crop of young guys develop.
