2022 Puroresu General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to 2023. Most things going on now are setting up for that year and it is also the year covid restrictions orders by venue or companies may be lifted.

i think AJPW may have the best ring now, would be lot better next year if there was no logos on the AJPW canvas.

Few of the other promotions rings have adopted white canvas these past few years and other NJPW elements like boarders or even the moden fight turnbuckles style.

I wish they resigned N.Nomura and book him to appear rarely and finish the other AJPW players off with his new super move.

Yeah, I’m disappointed he’s not booked for the big show. Dude should be back in the title mix.

I do think that if COVID hadn’t scuffled things, he’d have been in the Oudou tournament finals.

Keep in mind Covid restrictions 

Attendance figures for each Japanese organization, January to August 2022
1. New Japan: 170,199
2. Stardom: 53,196
3. Dragon Gate: 46,079
4. Noah: 34,097
5. DDT: 24,393 (19,502 + CF Fest: 4891)
6. All Japan: 21,090
7. Big Japan: 16,717
8. Tokyo Joshi: 14,364
9. Ice Ribbon: 9408
10. ZERO1: 9088

If it was up to me, I would added the cyberfest numbers to Noah instead because their belt mains the show and they're CyberFights main brand.

Amount of Shows that several promotions had run this year

NJPW - 139
Stardom - 77
Dragongate - 107
Noah - 60
DDT - 88
All Japan - 44
Big Japan - 94
Tokyo Joshi - 44
Ice Ribbon - 75
ZERO1 - 40

Okay, this njpwworld billing on the first of the month shit has me scowling at my email in the dark.  I had been thoroughly enjoying it since 8/17 but now I feel like this is some gotcha, porno website bullshit.  I was planning on keeping the service but now I just feel bitchy and mean-spirited about 8 bucks even though I used to blow 20-30 on old time DVD bootleg sites like puroresudvds and IVP 19 years ago.  I don't give a goddamn if there are 30 reddit threads about this explaining to only sign up on the 1st.  I just wanted to listen to my radio, get lit to the bone and reconnect with puro.  I ain't Silas Stingy but iffin I didn't clutch my coinpurse.

 

Night Flight streaming was also fucky 5 years ago and I'm still holding a grudge.  Same deal where service stops immediately at cancellation.

 

Now I'll get back to scrutinizing a portion of Kengo Kimura's œuvre.  I've also been loving double arm and side suplexes and every time Riki Choshu does a bodyslam.  I also love that video what just came out on youtube compiling Tenryu kicking dudes in the head.  Sakuraba in Noah is the drizzlin's.  Fujiwara looked better a couple months ago.  Fujiwara also didn't wear a t-shirt in the pool.  Funaki has Eric Roberts hair.  Obligatory "cop shit his pants" reference and we're done.

It sucks but it's just how it works in Japan. AJPW.TV, Dragongate Network, Wrestle Universe, Nico Pro, BJW Core, they all do it.

Some context for Ice Ribbon's totals, too... 43 of their 75 events were at their dojo, which is currently configured to max out at around 55-60 fans due to COVID setup, not the actual building capacity of 110. And of the 43, 7 were no audience streaming specials (two Club Ice Ribbon specials, and each match of Kiku's five match trial was it's own individual show).

All things considered, ninth is pretty dang good!

I was just asking about brother's health in one of the AEW threads. Heartbreaking. One of the best to ever do it and not many worked better in the moment with emotion and reactions specific to their circumstances. Kick out, Tenryu! Watching he and Fuyuki vs. Yatsu and Nakano from '91 right now.
