Well, Wonder Carnival is pretty underwhelming.

In other news - a titan has fallen: Bodyguard out of the tag league, as his team forfeits their remaining matches.

He's old as hell for how he wrestles and roided out of his mind, so him getting any kind of injury isn't too surprising.

I want to see who AJP signs next year.

Yeah, I legitimately worry about the guy.  That's all I'll say.

So, I decided to get back on the AJPW.tv train, what are the best AJPW matches from this year.

(I saw most of the big stuff from the first couple months and I'm watching the Carnival Final right now)

I can come by with more recommendations later, but here's the stuff I thought was tops of the carnival:

Just the tippy top recommended matches:

Zeus vs Ishikawa (4/25)

Ishikawa vs Okabayashi (4/4)

Ishikawa vs Miyahara (4/14)

Zeus vs Ryouji Sai (4/14)

Zeus vs James (4/13)

Zeus vs Okabayashi (4/21)

Miyahara vs Okabayashi (4/25)

Lee vs Miyahara (4/29)

Zeus vs Miyahara (4/9)

Lee vs Nomura (4/4)

Suwama vs Lee (4/21)

Miyahara vs Aoyagi (4/17)

Suwama vs Nomura (4/28)

James vs Okabayashi (4/20)

Jake Lee vs Nomura (4/28)

I probably rated Ishikawa/Oka too high and James/Oka too low, but whatever, it's a good list.

I know I'm a big Miyahara mark, but damn, Miyahara/Aoyagi vs Lee/Nomura was really damn good tonight.

Likewise, I've been trying to branch out and watch more non-NJ Japan stuff, specifically NOAH and AJPW but YouTube kinda sucks in this regard unless there's a good account I'm just missing. Where is the treasure trove of modern, preferably free or cheap to watch modern puro?

OH HELL YEAH now let them invade NJPW already. 

Also hoping this final had a Doc & Gordy vs Misawa & Kawada feel but we'll have to wait and see...

Weird ass booking. VG losing would kinda invalidate their win, and Zeus and Sai just returning the belts to the guys they got them off of is kinda useless too. Also seems way too soon for another Jake challenge. Would have preferred Valletta, of all people, who has pinned Kento twice this year.

I take it this is Jake's win after the big tease with the last challenge. I think the fans will accept it, even if it's coming too soon after the last one.

I love purolove and cagematch, but do any sites do a good job of keeping track of upcoming cards, rather than just results? Puroresu Spirit used to be good for this.

CMLL is doing new years show (1/1), main event of it will be Kawato/Dulce Gardenia in hair vs hair match. Kawato is getting shaved 100%, but this will likely be his career highlight in CMLL so you might want to check out how he does in that spot.
