Puroresu General Discussion for 2018

Recommended Posts

NJPW's Sho and Yoh plus Ice Ribbon's Tsuakasa Fujimoto will take part in the next SASUKE/Ninja Warrior which tapes today and tomorrow and will be shown in Japan on March 26. Ibushi has been on twice. Tanahashi and Minoru Suzuki of all people, once. I know Great SASUKE has been on. DDT's Yuki Ueno and a host of others have been on in the past. No one's ever cleared the 1st Stage though. Ibushi was the closest and almost killed himself doing a flip on the Soritatsu Kabe/Warped Wall.

Correct. She competed on the women's only show KUNOICHI. Several female wrestlers have done KUNOICHI too. One of the most recent versions had Saki Akai from DDT. The original producers of SASUKE/KUNOICHI went bankrupt and the shows went on hiatus for a bit. SASUKE came back first after a year plus break and last year they brought back KUNOICHI.

So they had another Pro Wrestling Masters show this past week. This time Muto/Fujinami/Liger/Choshu took on a reformed Team 2000 of Tenzan/AKIRA/Hiro Saito/Super J taking the place of the injured Kojima with Chono.

Real Hero Archive has shut down. :(

I bought a hard drive and it was way more time consuming and difficult to download en masse than I predicted. I didn't make it far before I ran out of time. At least the word press is now linking to Drive downloads rather than the somewhat sketchy sites they originally were using. I fucked up and missed out on downloading HUSTLE.

NJPW is doing great business in Australia. ~3,500 in Sydney, huge merchandise business, their smallest stop did $200k, Okada getting deafening ovations, feedback has been all super positive, and more importantly this:

My PWO GWE podcast partner Stacey went and had a good time. Apparently  everyone on the show got massive pops except for Cody who had intense, absurd heat.

Dude has really come into his own the past 4-6 months. He's put in the work, was in the right place at the right time and is now enjoying the fruits of his labour.

Cody is a real reason to watch. He hasn’t just fallen into a hot stable/angle—which I thought at first—he’s made it so I don’t want to imagine how this would all look without him. 

This, from the Aussie tour, is also great. Fitting that the Kiwi in all black should be heckled, honestly.

Yeah, I bookmarked the archive with the intention to download, but it was a lot more hassle and time suck than i realized and I never really bothered.

Cody has absolutely blossomed into a legit star. He's only pretty good bell to bell, but he's become great at pretty much everything else.

Melbourne show was probably 85-90% full (Festival Hall is generally a 3000-3500 seater depending on configuration) and crowd was pretty much hot for everything. Cody got massive heat doing the Omega terminator pose. Awesome seeing NJPW live at home and doing awesome

This is not an "omg Shibata comeback imminent" post, but either he's doing the thing where you push your arms forward with the hand you've got tucked behind, in order to make your biceps look bigger, or he's actually filling out a bit and looking healthier, which is nice. (Tanahashi apparently is joking here that he made their secret meeting not so secret, because when you tweet that it's a secret it's... not.)

I'm kinda hoping that means he's about to retire so as to not ruin another set of knees, but that seems overly optimistic.

Mutoh says he will carry on wrestling. But will do his final moonsault with his old knees. So no more moonsaults post surgery.

If the surgery is a success he will be able to walk and run normally in the ring again.

New knees means he won't be frozen in the NBM pose forever after retirement. So many jokes of "That statue of Mutoh i so life like... no that IS Keiji Mutoh" will never be made!

Downloading from Google Drive in high quantities is awful, I downloaded all the Joshi Classic events he had and it created like 50 zip drives I then had to slowly unzip. Wish there had been an easier way.

Hopefully some of the archive is reposted somewhere somehow over time. 

This is perhaps the most Sanshiro Takagi thing in the history of DDT.

Kota Ibushi has liked three things in his time on twitter; that video is one of them.

Once I realized what was going on, I almost spit my my drink all over my keyboard.

Has Hoshitango been in any matches worth checking out? As a nearly sixty-year-old Argentinian sumo wrestler, he’s my favourite performer whom I’ve never seen.

I know I'm late to the party but DDT has a matinee show on live right now over at Universe. The hardcore match is about halfway done right now but the final two matches ought to be good stuff.

DDT Extreme Title – Hardcore +α Match
Yuko Miyamoto (c) vs. Shunma Katsumata

Special Singles Match
Naomichi Marufuji vs. Kazusada Higuchi

Special Tag Team Match
Konosuke Takeshita & HARASHIMA vs. Shuji Ishikawa & Daisuke Sekimoto

Zeus and Bodyguard beat Yoshi-Ken for the tags. Sai and Dylan James are the next contenders to face them.

There's a possible chance Sai and James might beat Zeus and The Bodyguard, the world tag belts have been changing hands at every defense recently.

Kondo won the junior league. I'm looking forward to Kondo vs Aoki. 

Also Nagata and Jun vs Omori and Nakanishi  for the All Asia tags.

The tag title booking has been weird. Makes me think Miyahara winning the TC next month or the CC is even more likely.
