Totally random idea, does anyone else think that Kojima should have last CC instead of last G1?

Booking wise, NJPW would demand he be protected or never lose via pinfall. 

 

Daisuke Sekimoto wants to face Tanahashi. Probably might be him and Kento vs Tanahashi and Honma.

One more thing, about this: The animosity between Sasaki and Choshu adds a layer I hadn't thought about to Nakajima working Power Hall this July. Which I'm glad he did, because him/Kitamiya vs Kamitani/Nomura (NOAH's young Kick/Beef team vs Big Japan's much younger Kick/Beef team) would be on my Tag MOTY list, if I made such a thing. It also scores very, very high on my "I'm uncomfortable loving this, because brain trauma is definitely happening" scale, and has one of the more "was that a planned stoppage or is he actually knocked out?" finishes I've seen lately. So YMMV.

Noticed .gif on twitter that I think sums up whole match pretty well:

New Power Hall show has hit the internet and Nomura/Nakajima are on opposing tags again. It is 4vs4 so naturally they get less time together, but it kinda works as a "teaser" for eventual (I hope) another big match between them.

Riki Choshu retires at 26.06.2019 at "POWER HALL 2019 ~ NEW JOURNEY BEGINS" at the Tokyo Korakuen Hall.

Mutoh wants to get back in the ring next year. Great Muta in New York in April 2019.

Will he keep doing Power Hall shows after that date?

Depends on the backers. Choshu is appearing at pro wrestling masters too.

The show below will have NOAH and AJP wrestlers. Same backers.

My God, Kotaru Suzuki is lucky to be okay after this bump:

He pretty much immediately got up after that bump (thankfully right into the finish).

Okay, sorry for the double post but I am losing it at Gota Ihashi opening the latest Power Hall show after the controversy from his last appearance. And it's against Fujiwara. LOLOLOL. I love all of this.

Suzuki appears to take it all on his shoulder and arm, so for a dangerous bump, he was probably totally fine.

Who do we all want Choshu's final opponent/s to be?

I guess if he wants to go down in a big singles match against a new guy like Tenryu did he could job to Kaito.

The Suzuki bump is ridiculous. The really sad part is you can tell from both guys movement it’s exactly what they planned. Bookers should be handing down fines to convince guys to stop doing stupid shit like that.

Naoya Nomura pinning Riki Choshu would be nice.

Nakajima should pin him because of his lineage but Kiyomiya has been heavily featured on the last couple of Power Hall shows.

NOAH looks like they are fully behind Kiyomiya so it would probably be "best for business" if he pinned Choshu.

Looks like a botched air raid crash or whatever you call that move Takao Omori does (Alex driver?). Either drop to knees or cradle the head, dudes.

They did same spot in their earlier match as well, only difference was that Suzuki didn't lift him up for tiger driver so this looks a bit cooler. So I doubt that this was botched.

It’s completely intentional, you can tell from the setting and execution. No delay, no fumbling to grab the head. That’s what makes it all the more nutty.

At some point agents have to step in and say hang on a minute boys. There’s a million other things you could do which might not result in paralysis. It adds nothing and just looks like a botch, it’s hard to even class as a spot as it’s so awkward. One less stupid bump per match would go a long way in life in the ring and beyond.

Watched the most recent Power Hall last night with a bud and as the cameras panned over the crowd I noticed one of my friend's music buddies in the audience. He and a friend apparently travel to Tokyo now for every WK but are taking in a bunch of shows before that. Super jealous and surreal.

The aforementioned Kitamiya/Nakajima vs. Nomura/Kamitani match was superb even if it did feature a very disgusting finish. I want to see more out of those two Strong BJ guys.

We also checked out a few other matches including Takeda vs. Kodaka from BJW this year. Just about the most insane death match as a sprint matches I've ever seen. Kodaka absolutely never should've hit the double knees off the ladder if he was going to lose. It was really fun and never had a dull moment but questionable logic at best. Unless you're dead set against deathmatches, I recommend checking it out though.

Well NOAH also does shoot headbutts every few shows and people get occasionally dropped from stiff kicks/punches that you start to wonder if they are that good at selling or they have been legit knocked out. Even that Nakajima/Nomura finish from earlier Power Hall show, I'm pretty sure that I have seen one of Nakajima/Kenou matches end like that too.

Basically I think that NOAH approves of this shit and thats how they see wrestling.

DDT's Naomi Yoshimura was diagnosed with a cervical sprain after taking a move wrong from Daisuke Sasaki at last night's show. Apparently the show was held up 45 minutes while they got him out of the ring. He should be okay going forward but his KOD title match with Sasaki is off.

NOAH? Agents? Uh, sure. They do basically what they want.
