  1. In the observer, Dave said the two stardom cards this weekend will be separate full priced ppvs rather than a combo package. Can anyone confirm or deny?
  2. Another presale code for United center: AEWDANCE Presale begins 10am local time today through Sunday. General on sale is Monday.
  3. Barstool sports account tweeted it with like 30k likes. Problem with going viral.
  4. I know the unfortunate news about ryo mizunami but she would be perfect. Maybe they can do something with legit leyla? Britt needs a shooter.
  5. Threatening to pull future ads = all bad. Hopefully this doesn’t snowball more.
  6. Anyone planning to go to the rampage show at United center, first presale code for tomorrow at 10am local time is PWTUC
  7. On WOR Dave said Moxley petitioned for a major new japan star for All Out. Tanahashi will already be in LA a few weeks before and they certainly talked it up last night.
  8. I’m with the side that says hangman losing is their pivot and we’re getting punk vs omega at All Out. Also Mox is off the card in LA now, seems just like a trade. I hope if new japan sells out they increase capacity. All they have to do is open more sections, but they’re so conservative. Did I miss it or there just wasn’t any follow up to the lucha bros transport situation? Andrade had no heat but it’s not like he’s done anything. Also, I’d say thunder rosa’s first official match against a unique young act is somewhat intriguing, but they sure never wanted to mention it throughout the show. Anyway, thought the show was great fun as usual.
  9. Tomorrow they’re posting the utami vs syuri match edited in half on YouTube. Hope it gets shared a lot.
  10. That was a year long storyline about who is the real leader of the bullet club. I really, really, really don’t want any storylines involving evp’s and power struggles and all that. I’m sure one day they will feud and the past will be brought up, but I’d prefer them to make that as un-meta as possible.

  12. There’s a number of Japanese toy sites that carry those figures, such as https://www.goodsmile.info/en/products/search?utf8=✓&search[query]=Wrestling&commit=Search#searchResults However, the figures like Andre, Nakamura, Asuka, and Hogan are licensed by wwe, and I believe part of the arrangement is that they can’t be sold to US addresses. I tried ordering the Nakamura one from like four different sites, and you add to your cart and go through all the normal processes, and then once you enter your address it says something like “I’m sorry, we are not allowed to sell this item to your country.” So ebay is the only way to go afaik.
  13. I’m cross posting this from the podcast thread. More people will see it here and I probably should have posted here to begin with. Highly recommend listening to the whole thing. Kenny omega on wrestling observer radio was very interesting. Two hours and he’s quite intelligent and honest. Only caught three quarters. -Kenny says when looking on who to mold himself on to do American tv, instead of ric flair it was Mr. perfect. Of course mr perfect has incredible matches with Bret hart, but he also wrestled hulk Hogan and ultimate warrior and Texas tornado and they are all good matches, and he makes them all look good. And mr perfect had Bobby heenan, omega has don Callis. -He compared nakamura and callis as guys who have outside interests bigger than wrestling, so that gives them a different perspective when they come to wrestling. They don’t mimic stuff from the last like other wrestlers who are just all about wrestling. -Complaining about commercials. He was watching the show the other day and noticed all the commercials were like these wacky slapstick commercials with silly music, but the match is a street fight, and then the fans have to get zapped right back to that with that in their head. -He wants rampage to be more for women wrestlers, but that doesn’t mean it will be that way. Everyone (male and female) is fighting really hard for the limited spots. -In the beginning they would have scheduled meetings and hash things out. Now if someone has an idea, they discuss it with the people the idea is about, then they discuss it with Tony, then they continue discussing it as weeks for by. -Talking about long term storytelling. You see tv shows that get cancelled and then years later they come back. If you leave stories open ended you can always return to them. He has open stories with hangman, ibushi, styles, white, tanahashi. -Dave is saying all the matches can be done in the United States because the way the crowd is, when any of these guys come out a large amount will react like this is huge, and then that makes everyone who doesn’t know them feel like they are seeing something special, which makes the tv audience think it’s a big deal. -omega vs Okada 5 “already happened in their minds” and they would have made it like a cool final ending. It could happen in the future and as Dave says they’ve never done that match here and everyone wants to see it. -He held back so much in the jungle boy match so they can take the rematch to a completely different level. -He’s at peace with winding down his career so he just wants to make his opponents look great. -Talking about how in new japan they see guys like goto and say he’s too old or ishii could just never be champion, and Kenny is like they’re awesome let’s just get behind them and give them big wins. Naito should’ve been way stronger champion. -For g1 they have unspoken rule, they don’t want to drop out of the tournament. They have to have amazing matches but they can’t get too injured. It’s just like the playoffs for a sport. I still haven’t listened to last half hour.
  14. I selfishly hope the announcement is the first California show, like a major show in LA. Since New Years is a Saturday and it’s right between ppvs I could definitely see the announcement being the first tnt special (regardless of location). We shall find out!
