Champion Carnival 2019

Recommended Posts

Block A looks fantastic, with the exception of Valletta.

Someone try to convince me that Block B doesn’t look dreadful. I guess Jake Lee takes it.

Completely unfamiliar with almost every outside in Block B.

No Akiyama makes me sad.

Yoshida is Cyber Kong, that's not a good thing. Redman is apparently pretty good, was Owen Grey in NXT. Big guy. Sam Adonis is evil American Heel in Lucha, I have no idea if he can wrestle.

Adonis is all character work. He struck me as a basic bitch who's pretty uncoordinated when I was watching him at his popularity height during the Panther feud. High potential for it to be pretty ugly in Japan.

Yeah, sub out Adonis and Cyber Kong for Akiyama and Hino and you’d really be cooking.

Still, in Block A, every combo of Kento/Shuji/Mashimo/Zeus/Okabayashi has the potential to be great, and James and Aoyogi aren’t slouches.

Makes me think what he'll do with his character there. I doubt that many Japanese wrestling fans care one way or another about Trump. Maybe comedy heel?

He also got banned from RevPro (I think) for using a bunch of homophobic slurs in a promo, so fuck him.

If a brother can't rely on cheap heat, what is he to do?!

Learn to wrestle like a heel. He could get really cheap easy heat over there being that character. Just support the Brexit and he's instantly a heel with of that audience.

He's Corey Graves brother, so fuck him for that, too.

My read on Adonis is he basically did the same thing he did in Mexico where people aren't so bothered about PC (or at least people who go to wrestling shows) and transposed a very successful formula to a crowd who REALLY care about that. Which strikes me as careless, but I forgive him for that. He's a Brian Dixon guy (whose crowds are not 'modern Britwres crowds' and more working class family audiences) so I think he'll be fine - good, even - out on the spot shows where no real action needs to happen, but as soon as the lads put their working boots on he will get eaten alive.

I quite liked Cyber Kong, for what it's worth. He stood out in Dragon Gate. Maybe not so much here.

We are notably missing KAI, Akiyama, Hino, Sekimoto, maybe even Kohei Sato. 2 of those 5 and we have a real tourney.

First show looks great and it airs on the last day I teach so I can relax and watch it.

Finalist for B block will obviously be chosen in this match:

-. Champion Carnival - Block B: Jake Lee vs. Joe Doering

Block A final show at least offers more credible options:
-. Champion Carnival - Block A: Zeus vs. Shuji Ishikawa
-. Champion Carnival - Block A: Kengo Mashimo vs. Dylan James
-. Champion Carnival - Block A: Kento Miyahara vs. Yuji Okabayashi

I'm guessing that Miyahara vs Okabayashi is the decider, though.

That first night is jacked. I may have to utilise my sub and actually watch that live. The next two korakuen shows are loaded and there’s nothing better in korakuen than AJPW at the best of times.

They haven't officially released the live schedule yet for April, but I'd be surprised if they aren't.

Word is Mashimo was injured during his FREEDOMS match today. Hopefully nothing too serious. Apparently Akiyama had previously announced that he’d substitute in case of injury.

This first show is gonna be great:

-. Champion Carnival - Block A: Shuji Ishikawa vs. Yuji Okabayashi
-. Champion Carnival - Block A: Kento Miyahara vs. Kengo Mashimo
-. Champion Carnival - Block B: Daichi Hashimoto vs. Takashi Yoshida
-. Champion Carnival - Block B: Naoya Nomura vs. Jake Lee
-. Champion Carnival - Block B: Suwama vs. Joe Doering
  

also, Mashimo has been active since his injury so I guess that’s good.

I'm definitely glad he's not hurt badly, but I have to confess that a small part of me was kinda hoping it was just bad enough that Akiyama would take his place for one more last Carnival.

Now I’m reading that Mashimo is out with a torn rotator cuff, so idk.
