When they announced USA shows they said that it'll feature guys who are not on this show. I think that Ospreay is doing something in UK during this period so entire USA tour will be basically on Juice/Finlay and Best Friends? The fuck?

Edit: Ishii and Nagata are not on these shows, so thats in USA?

Where are my Ishii/Nagata and Cobb/Goto matches?!?

Yeah, forgot about Cobb/Goto as well. So probably for USA: Juice vs Beretta, Finlay vs Chucky, Nagata vs Ishii, Cobb vs Goto. Actually not that bad.

Add to that: SHO & YOH and the Killer Elite Squad aren't on any of these shows. Neither is Ospreay (like you mentioned) or Marty Scurll. Neither is Hikuelo. You've got the young lions like Kawata and Oka too, but they're both on excursion in different countries. Robbie Eagles too, but who knows if he is even considered to be on the New Japan roster these days. Maybe ROH loans out some talent to pad out the card? I don't know.

I'm for sure not driving two hours if those are the marquee matches. The ONLY match I would drive that far and spend money to see live is Nagata/Ishii, and that's only because Yuji Nagata is one of my favorite wrestlers and he got me into the Japanese scene waaaay back in 2003/2004.

Sounds like both of these are, indeed, coming to America.

What do I need to do to get matches against heavyweights? Is the question that I'm sure Kushida asked many times, and looks like the answer was "leave" :D

*as he promptly gets placed on 205 Live

*205 Live is not a knock on the wrestlers comprising the CW division, but its been stated before, the division is completely unnecessary when wrestlers of similar weight (Bryan, Rollins, Balor, AJ) have never been part of the division. More of the 205 roster should be intergrated into Raw and SD.

Did you see the stuff with KUSHIDA breaking down crying at the press conference when Tana asked him a question?

He got really emotional. And was saying stuff like "I don't know why I'm crying, I'm happy with my decision"

If he's happy with it than that's all that matters. I'm disapppointed this means the end of Time Machine. For having never teamed before the Super Juniors, I thought he and Sabin looked really good together. First Shelley, now Kushida. When will Chris Sabin stop being left high and dry?

How would being integrated into already full rosters help them?

To help eliminate the stigma to WWE audiences of the CW division being beneath everyone else

That won't happen until WWE treats 205Live as its own entity like NXT instead of attaching it to SDL tapings which puts it in the same boat as Heat/Velocity/Main Event/etc.

Added Road To Cards that look somewhat interesting. Weird thing is that they have first MVP match (I think every other appearances together this year had third man on their team) and Shingo/Kanemaru, Bushi/Desperado singles matches on shows that won't be streamed. And I'm not sure if last elimination match will be streamed or not since they haven't updated their schedule yet, but I think most of them get streamed.

Sure, but I meant that more in NJPW's context. He probably would have loved to get this match last year or year before, but he gets it when he is leaving.

Road To makes me want to watch Bob Hope and Bing Crosby movies. 🤡 Patty cake, patty cake...

White vs Tanahashi is intriguing as fuck. Before WK I would have said you absolutely don't' pull the trigger on Jay yet but, with the MSG show coming up and his clean win over Okada, I think this is the time to do it.

They just don’t get it. Tanahashi should book the USA shows.
