  1. great brutal review and also a stage school is basically what it sounds like: a private school at which aspirant actors, singers, dancers, etc. go to to have their talent nurtured away from the screaming riff-raff at a normal school. it generally pumps out soulless nobodies with odd exceptions.
  2. it's a problem for people like us who follow long-term storytelling (which I guess is not everyone, or even half of the people watching) but it does seem to help the houses. bit of a bind. you are right. last few years in G1 i look at Budokan/Sumo Hall and it's there.
  3. oh and Eddie. christ, what an era.
  4. Liger's best opponent in my humble opinion was Mad Bastard Sasuke, but Otani, Kanemoto, and Sonmurderer all good shouts. I thought he had good matches against Taikawa/Black Tiger too.
  5. the less-than-ideal execution (you can't say it wasn't foreshadowed hugely, this not a swerve) says to me that there was a different plan that was axed along the way. tango to everyone on the stables thing. a couple of them need to die, pronto. i was reading my write up of G1 26 and apart from Jay White being on a push we're pretty much still the same as it was. EVIL and SANADA getting gatekeeper jobbed. Naito the bridesmaid. Ibushi will-he/won't-he. Something different lads. You have the talents at your disposal.
  6. Mikey Nicholls back is something I never thought I'd see after his flop NJ Cup. Then again, seems pretty all-hands on deck.
  7. damn they're doing it like some 80s AJPW tag league, kind of into it, and yet am taking this time out to recuperate on New Japan
  8. Just watched Kento v Jake, best since G1 for me!
  9. Seen it now, great show, feel hyped again.
  10. looks like a super show today, heard nothing but raves. watched the main angles and - and it's not a competition, enjoy all art if you like - it reminds me that when they turn on the angle tap/faucet they smash it harder than their contemporaries.
  11. the world: hey sevendaughters what do you care about in wrestling these days? me, hooting lustily: SOME GUY WHO USED TO WORK RICKY KNIGHT'S SPOT SHOWS AND HIS MUTE VALET another good show.
  12. how seriously do AJPW take the tag league these days? is it a holiday tour? cos that line up is great and i have free time coming up.
  13. I'm not actually super-familiar with Eli Drake but I liked that his shtick was "I am a babyface" and the crowd were like "yeah! a babyface! let's cheer him!" this was a good hour of wrestling telly. tv has generally been a boner-killer for me when it comes to watching wrestling of late (the last 15 years) but this and MLW get it right.and probably make little money.
  14. I thought I had become one of those Japan bores because US wrestling failed to get me excited anymore. AEW is interesting in terms of power balance but I can't say I am super into it. I watched Powerr just now and thought it was great. Really fun. Promos. Spontaneity. Personalities. I would have saved the main for down the road. They were really doing a great job of hyping it that they could have stretched the build out some more. Will be watching more. Instantly my US #1 promotion based on regular TV.
  15. you're all crapping on that main event but they developed some sick photos during it
  16. Rusev being with Hogan while there's a wife-fucking angle going on is high level
  17. the show was fine, NXT is always fine isn't it, but you could feel the desperation and worry in it. Like when Raw or Nitro were on top in their respective wars they had this strut about them, like they were the big dogs. feel like in two years we'll be burned out as hell.
  18. top post updated. I am expecting Liger v Suzuki to be an angle of some kind, don't think they'll give that away mid-card beneath potential MOTY contenders.
  19. Probably a dull list to most here - I'd probably say Ishii is a reliable old stager who delivers (and Japan has a lot but he is king amonst them), Kota Ibushi is about to hit the star level his talent demands, Shingo Takagi is probably going to break through in a non-parent company in Japan faster than Sanada because he's just that good, and probably Okada to round it off. I realise this is NJPW heavy but they have a lot of extremely good wrestlers (Tanahashi will always have my heart, I became a big EVIL fan this year, and I think my friend Neil is right about Jay White) though there are a lot of super talents across Japan (I like Ben-K, Kitamiya, N Nomura, Zeus, Shuji Ishikawa, and Kohei Sato a lot). Outside of Japan I'd have trouble forming a list as I don't see a whole lot (busy, not snobbery) but I like what I see of late from Cody, the Lucha Brothers, Pete Dunne, Drew Gulak, Cavernario, and a few others.
  20. surely you know Yuki Ishikawa, @Control? Battlarts? Shooty tendencies.
