The EVERYONE IS LEAVING NEW JAPAN!!! Thread

That's true. Why aren't they like...the Gun Club? Are there clubs that just collect and talk about ammo instead of the guns?

I would like Devitt and his boys a lot more if they constantly referenced Fire Of Love.

I'm just saying that his initial heel run as TV Champ was gold. Go back and re-watch his matches with Rick Steiner for instance.  Then his team with Doc was is one of those unheralded teams of the 80's.

Rotunda's a guy who's a lot like Karl Anderson - really good wrestler, can perform good matches, but has all the charisma of a block of wood.

But he had Sullivan doing the talking for him while he played smug jock role to perfection.

INakamura entering The Rumble as The Authority's hired gun just makes so much sense. H looks so unassuming from a physical looking standpoint so no one will expect him to dominate Reigns. Playing him as a mercenary that wins the Rumble and then plays tweener champ by ignoring the Authority title would be amazing ... and thus will never happen

 

Is this how people are coping? There's always these fantasy scenarios when a good worker sells out but how can you remotely entertain anything remotely like this to happen?

The saving grace about Nakamura is that he's going to be entertaining no matter what.

 

So when they resign Jimmy Wang Yang and make him Ol' Hoss 'Nuk-ay! to be his partner on Superstars, it'll still be fun.

Very true. But you know WWE isn't gonna use Anderson that smartly.

That implies that Captain Mike IRS Wallstreet Rotunda was ever cool.

 

Captain Mike Rotundo of the Varsity Club was bad ass.  Fuck you thinking?

 

I guess if you find deeply uncharismatic, excessively sweaty, lumpy bodied dudes doing abdominal stretches for an hour to be bad ass. The matches with Rick Steiner were only decent because young Rick Steiner was willing to risk his life taking lariats.

Varsity Club Rotundo really had the jock asshole thing nailed down. That kind of intangible goes a long way in wrestling.
