Puroresu General Discussion for 2018

That Kenoh might leave is really based on circumstantial evidence at this point—

Spoiler

he dropped the title

—but still, losing Ishimori is a blow, losing both would hurt an awful lot. And it had seemed the company was trending in the right direction.

Have loved Ishimori's time in Impact, especially this year, so I'd be glad if he stuck around there somewhat regularly still.

That’s not much to go on. I was assuming he had more info than that.

1) I hope this is an indication that Kawada's on better terms with wrestling. To whatever extent he wants to be around the business, I hope he can manage it.

2) Book Taichi.

That is not a title I’d expect to see a western wrestling promotion use.

Kawada said he will book 6 matches. Might use Joshi as well. He wants Marufuji to show up and older workers. He stressed old vs new and other genres of wrestling styles. Sounds similar to pre 2005 AJPW.

Plans to hold a show every two months.

That would be awesome. Who else is freelancing or not really locked in right now that should show up? I didn't even know Honda was still wrestling, FFS.

Allegedly, Ibushi is still a freelancer.

Well Ishimori just announced that he is leaving NOAH so sounds like a perfect timing?

Kawada certainly could use the star power. It seems like he wants Marufuji to fight somebody else, at least if the first two people he wants publicly are him and Honda and wants a styles clash thing happening, but that would be a great match. Ibushi too. Hell, if Kenou is leaving, there's another head for the gathering.

Mutoh hit his final moonsault on Kono today. Mutoh aims to come back eventually.
Soya won the W-1 title.

Has there been any further word on the AJPW streaming service? Like will it have pre-split stuff?

Must say, that was a bomb-ass moonsault. I'd buy it finishing a match; short, fast, and impactful. Congrats Keiji

NTV owns the footage before pre split AJPW/NOAH.  They would have to work out a deal to use the footage but that's more likely to happen with NOAH service.

Starts somewhere before Champion Carnival or so they say.

Wait there's gonna be a NOAH streaming service? (Still catching up on Puro since I finally got Fire Pro on the PC)

If they don't have it running by the Carnival, announcing it was a huge mistake.

If NOAH launches a service with AJPW's NTV content... Hot damn. The back catalogue alone would be worth it. I know they've shown some pick up in business since that start of the year, but I'm not sure they're going to have enough interest in the current product to do this. I so wish they'd work out a deal with their American partner Impact to put the stuff on the Global Wrestling Network and promote the hell out of it in Japan. But probably because I'm already giving them 8 bucks a month.

I'm currently at four wrestling streaming services. I'm not sure I can afford much more.

How easy are these streaming services to sign up for and cancel?

A NOAH service would have Pre split AJPW, JWA, NOAH, maybe Fortune Dream and whatever they bought out from IWA Japan while back.

Now if they would just tell us the link to the service so I can actually bookmark it to sign up...
