Purotopia General Discussion: 2017!

To clarify - and I put this in the main thread - it technically isn't New Japan but their parent company who just found out and they are the ones who nixed the deal.

NJ obviously was willing to bring him in (assuming he was on his best behavior)

Apparently the whole talk at BOLA was for Riddle not to pull a Sydal.

So who are we fantasy booking to tag with Cobb now? I'll start and finish by saying Keith Lee

You'll get Sami Callihan.

So for all this time I assumed Taichi was lip synching during his entrances and that was part of his gimmick. But he's actually singing? Mind. Blown. Lol

Based on AJPW's recent "Road to the Real World Tag League" main event I take four of this year's top teams in the tournament will be Suwama & Ishikawa, Miyahara & Yoshitatsu, Zeus & the Bodyguard and (potential underdog winners???) Naoya Nomura & Yuma Aoyagi.

Also Doering vs Yoshitatsu from today's show has gotta be (on paper) one of the lamer TC main events in Korakuen history.

probably will suck as a match but a good bellwether to see if Yoshitatsu has any commercial juice. not going to run out of my way to see it.

I've been keeping an eye on the results from NOAH's global league.  Maybach is the only wrestler to not get a win during it.  Was a little surprised by this.  Wasn't he higher on the card not too long ago?

This year’s WSTL looks like fun. List of teams:

Kento Miyahara & Yoshitatsu (FREE)
Suwama & Shuji Ishikawa (FREE)
Jun Akiyama & Takao Omori
Zeus & The Bodyguard (FREE)
Joe Doering & Taiyo Kea (FREE)
Naoya Nomura & Yuma Aoyagi
Daichi Hashimoto & Hideyoshi Kamitani [BJW]
Manabu Soya (W-1) & Black Tiger VII (FREE)
TAJIRI & KAI [FREELANCE]
Ryoji Sai & Masakado [LAND’S END]

Not expecting MOTYC stuff, since when is the last time AJ’s tag league produced that, but there are at least a lot of fresh matchups.

He's been intentionally getting double count outs and stuff I believe.

That Tag League is wonderfully WAR-esque. What is the difference between FREE and FREELANCE though? And what is LAND'S END?

Holy shit. I know inflation and all that, but that's still huge. Good for them.

On the first, nothing.

on the second: Land’s End seems to be Ryoji Sai’s fed, which is almost entirely made up of Z1 guys and I’m not really sure if it’s a work splinter group or a vanity project or what.

 

EDIT: I double-checked and Land’s End has fewer Z1 guys than I thought. It’s Sai and a couple of Z1 dudes and then just a grab bag of weirdos. Sai is apparently the owner.

Anyone else get the feeling that Eddie is retaining the GHC belt whether it's Go or Kenou he's facing after the upcoming tournament final?

seen some matches of his when he was Daemon. not that good. unusual character though. sort of feels like he should be in DDT.
