According to Chris Charlton there is no immediate danger to his life and the headline was clickbaity so seemingly things are okay! 

Tenryu is one of my all-time favourites so very happy to see that.

FMW-E is probably finished. I wasn't too interested in it, too much more indy for me even compared to the other previous versions.

 

We should have known they were in trouble after they put all their eggs into the rocket basket.

Was a glorious basket at least. That one show they did indoors with explosions and nobody could see through the smoke was 10/10 stuff.

I'm still mad that Dick Togo went from a really fun NOAH Junior League run in January 2020 to turning up in New Japan alongside EVIL.

Ditto!

NJPW starts tonight's Korakuen show with Hiromu Takahashi pumping up the crowd, which is allowed to cheer for the first time in over two and a half years. And then the first match is Bad Boy Tito vs Minoru Suzuki. KAZE NI NARE!

I don't really care if there is cheering or not but definitely an emotional moment. There is a shot right before the Kaze Ni Nare where these two fans nod at each other like they've been waiting a while for this.

All the wrestlers seemed pretty amped up all night. O-Khan and Wato got pretty good reactions. LIJ is still very over.

The show was also being streamed live on Abema TV so that might have played a part in the overall atmosphere.

I had major chills for Kaze ni Nare, sounded louder than a pre-COVID full Korakuen. 

After this, I wouldn't mind if they just ran half Korakuen with chanting, may not look as good but my god what a difference it made. A fun main event was made so much better with a mega-hot crowd.

Thing about Wato/O-Khan already noted

You can see the two fans I mentioned at the five second mark.

Korakuen is absolutely the best place for them to have done this. It was a Monday night show so you're definitely only getting the hardcore fans there who were ready to make noise.

Especially as most of the time they are drawing what, 4-500 in Korakuen at present.

Are Tito and Che getting work with NJPW or just Tito? I'd like to see the Wolf Zaddies get some action in NJPW or Strong.
