Puroresu General Discussion for 2019

Recommended Posts

They don't even currently have weekly TV in Japan, do they?

That's a large mountain to scale.

They want to be number 2 but know there's no way to overcome NJPW.  They're going to focus on merch sales first before expanding attendances.

They're going to be budget minded hence the reduction of renting buildings and reduce paying to recycle streamers. 

NOAH could pay to get back on NTV but nothing like that has been mentioned yet so far.

To be honest, I think I've only watched one or two NOAH matches total from the last several years, so I have no real reference to how good or bad the shows are now.

I did watch Marufuji vs Sugiura from last year coming off his CC run and TC match. But I immediately pretty much forgot about wanting to see more right after. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“Yuji Hino is now in NOAH”

me: better start watching NOAH I guess

”Yuji Hino has signed with Zero-1”

Me: well that’s that I guess

Zero-1 shows show up online and they have occasional stuff air on TV. I think 3 or 4 shows this year in one form or another.

Where do they usually end up like PuroresuDream or Daily Motion?

Puroresudream twitter puts up the z1 stuff cause it's niconico stuff and some samurai stuff, eventually ends up in other places of note too. Ends on nefarious SOVIET sites as well. *cough*

The new NOAH logo is here and it’s controversial to say the least.

They updated the site.

I was right about the colors chosen and the dropping of the bird and boat. I like it.

Seems there's a MMA guy and others not yet added to the roster.

Pretty great poster, I’d say. Striking and visually dissimilar to the maximalist posters of the other companies.

I think that logo looks whatever, but it really works well with that poster. If they'll manage to constantly deliver such high quality posters then I won't complain.

NOAH has also added a slogan, which I've seen generally translated as "fighting, with aesthetics." I get it, but I prefer to imagine the roster engaged in a kind of debate club, or removing the comma and suplexing Aquinas.

Baba used to say something similar in the 80s.

I'm sure that will sell some tickets.

They also kinda hinted at what his last match might be:

I'm just hoping Jushin is part of War of the Worlds again this year

Liger has put so much time, sweat, blood, and tears into this business. Such a storied career, it'll be sad to see it come to an end, but the man deserves a beautiful sendoff. Looking forward to seeing what he'll do between now and January, and there will be tears in the Tokyo Dome next year. One of the best to ever do it.

Sucks to see Liger go. Legend.

Can't wait to see him show at the PC as a guest coach within the next 2 years.

Am I the only one who thinks they could do worse than to make the ring mat look like the "O" in the logo?

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Kishin Kawabata match.
