  1. OWE just had their first show in Japan yesterday. Ikemen showed up which connects him to two groups involved with AEW now (OWE and DDT). Whoops. WWE switched back to JSports this year. They were on DAZN from 2017 to 2019.
  2. Their new name is Active Advance Pro Wrestling or 2AW. Last show under the K-Dojo name is 5/26 and they officially become 2AW on 6/2. http://www.k-dojo.co.jp/news/20190413news/
  3. Also: Since it was mentioned above, the new emperor's reign starts on May 1st (Heisei to Reiwa). And it will also mean that we are getting a super Golden Week this year in Japan from April 27th to May 6th. Fukuoka is usually packed during the Dontaku Festival but I don't know how the extended break will affect attendance this time around.
  4. Dontaku Day 1: Lee/Ishimori Cobb/Taichi Okada and Ishii/Evil and Sanada Goto, Juice Robinson and Mikey Nicholls/Jay White, Fale and Chase Owens R3K with Rocky Romero/Bushi, Takagi and Naito Makabe, Yano, and Ospreay/Tama Tonga, Tango Loa and Hikuleo YOSHI-HASHI, Liger, TM IV, and Taguchi/Suzuki, Kanemura, Desperado and TAKA Honma, Umino, and Narita/Henare, Tsuji, and Uemura Dontaku Day 2: Sanada/Okada Evil/Ishii R3K with Rocky Romero/Bushi, Takagi and Naito Lee and Ospreay/Ishimori and X Goto, Robinson, Nicholls and Honma/White, Fale, Owens and Hikuleo Makabe, Yano and Liger/Tama, Tanga, and Jado Cobb, YOSHI-HASHI, TM IV, Taguchi and Henare/Suzuki, Taichi, Kanemaru, Desperado, TAKA Umino and Narita/Tsuji and Uemura
  5. Hakata Star Lane closed down from 4/1. The 3/31 shows were the last ones. There was a Big Japan show in the morning, a Tokyo Joshi Pro show in the afternoon and the DDT show finished things up. From the posters I've seen, I guess bigger groups will start using Acros Fukuoka as the go-to place for smaller shows.
  6. Picked these up at the last Hakata Star Lane show. Staff said the UWF card (10/10/84) was the first ever show at Star Lane.
  7. Last joshi at Hakata Star Lane (there are other photos after the initial tweet). https://twitter.com/lostinube/status/1 11300736734651187https://www.cagematch.net/?id=1&nr=227590 It was the first time for me to see a full Tokyo Joshi Pro show. The one thing that struck me is that have you can basically split their roster into two groups: tall and short. The other thing was that it seems like they are training the next generation of Sakura Hirotas so that joshi cards all over Japan have something to fill that comedy match slot. Big difference between the semi-main and main event and the rest of the matches although Maki Ito seemed pumped to be doing a show in her home area. Aja Kong is of course, Aja Kong. Liked the main event. They kept it special by being the only match to go outside. Sakazaki is really popular.
  8. Some photos of the last DDT (and last show period) at Hakata Star Lane. Not embedding since there is a Danshoku Dino photo in there. https://www.cagematch.net/?id=1&nr=227616 It was the first time going to a DDT show for me. Fun if sort of longish show (for a Star Lane show). The comedy match segment went on for a long time. I think it's the first time a lot of people are going to see Batten Bura Bura, a comedy worker for Kyushu Pro who is sort of their go to guy for doing interaction with celebs and whatnot. The three way tag was announced at the beginning of the show as a falls count anywhere and they went into the entrance area as a treat for fans. The main was good but since Takeshita and Sasaki are headlining the NY card it didn't seem like Ikemen had a chance. Oh yeah, Bull James was there and no one really cared. https://twitter.com/lostinube/status/1113008017853767680
  9. EVO is in Fukuoka this year and if Kenny is covering all three days for ESPN I don't think he's going to make it to the DDT show. It's not impossible but it would be difficult. Were the DDT show in the evening, it would sound more plausible. The DDT show is streaming live from 1:00 JST today and if you become an official member you can watch it for free. You don't have to purchase a membership, just join at the bronze level.
  10. I believe that that is the last Dragon Gate show in Hakata Star Lanes so I bet the crowd was amped.

    Woo..thought Osaka was going to melt down and lose it after she blew the three championship points in the 2nd set but she recovered her composure to pull it out.
  12. Dammit. Star Lanes is where I've gone to see shows the most. It's close to Hakata Station and could be configured for groups of various sizes (generally only NJPW and Dragon Gate use both sides of the hall these days). I can't even think of where they will run smaller shows from now on.
  13. It's part of the Jumbo Ten Match Challenge Series (Gagne. Kimura, Bobo Brazil etc). 2 out of 3 falls but the third ends with a double pin.
  14. NJPW doesn't have anything scheduled from Feb 13th to the 21st so him being at EVO shouldn't be an issue.
