2023 Puroresu General Discussion


RIPPA

Recommended Posts

So Aoyagi v Nakajima was some tasty puroresu. Nakajima murdering Aoyagi, with the people going bananas as the champ fought from underneath. I can’t imagine anything in the first week of January being able to match the 12/31 Yoyogi main event.

AJPW 

Spoiler

Nakajima won the Triple Crown. He will do his run all in his own Fighting Spirit Style.

Nakajima reverse nomimated Kento for as his next challenger. So Nakajima(c) vs Kento is next for the Triple Crown, at new years eve.

Backstage, Nakajima bought up belt renewal, for the Triple Crown.

H.Omori appeared after Nakajima's backstage promo...

All info from X.

Of the active guys who are a title away from completing a Japanese major company Grand Slam (Nakajima, Jake Lee, Minoru Suzuki, Go Shiozaki and Kazuyuki Fujita), who actually has a chance to do it?

The funniest scenario would be if Fujita somehow ended up in AJPW and beat Nakajima for the Triple Crown.

Depends on if either Lee or Nakajima go to NJPW later, amd if NJPW ever wants any of those guys.  Suzuki (55) is getting older by the years and is less likely to win the IWGP World HW. 

Fujita never. Shiozaki never.

 

AJPW entered in Nakajima and H.Omori for the Strongest Tag Determination, without Nakajima's permission.

Post covid, the industry moved away (again) from renting the Budokan. The Puroresu industry is also smaller than it was pre-covid, except for Stardom's growth. 

The only real flaw this year was the lack of angles, very angle low year. Hard to be invested if you needed angles to hook you in.

They had Muto and Nakamura talking to each other with giant WWE logo in the back. Shayna was there too.

Abema Charts for WWE are out there, for both Raw and Smackdown brands.  Only really mini charts in the sense that not everyone is on those new charts.

Nakajima switched to doing the Northen Lights Bomb as his main finish.

Next year somebody will be hired by AJPW, will it be Nakajima or someone else? 

 

With the exception of NJPW and maybe Stardom, every other promotion in Japan is small scale organization or indy or indierized.

I’d bet Ren Ayabe, personally. They could use some juniors, though.

It's Dec. Some AJP stuff..

A Triple Crown match will be held on Dec 31st. Nakajima (c) vs Kento. The Triple Crown match on 1.3 has been changed up to unknown. 

Masanobu Fuchi celebrates his 50th anniversary debut and 70th birthday next year, on 1, 14. A whole card for him.

Well I guess looking for some kind of positives... it was executed well and it probably means less Yujiro in tournaments.

Yujiro is the guy who eats the pins. He'll always get horned in to protect everybody else in the stable.
