  1. Will Ospreay is as good of a worker as there is, has been for the past three years. He has achieved that position through hard work and commitment and absolutely deserves his current standing.
  2. It’s got nothing to do with it. There’s a pecking order and a system within Japanese pro-wrestling. It’s simply Ospreay’s time for this shot/series. It’s not a slight on Shingo or indicative of his future.
  3. It has to be said that Mox and Kenny were having a helluva match for that style until the stretch. Everything died run-in on and was mute without crowd heat. Damned shame. I’m no fan of the cinematic but I enjoyed the hell out of the street fight. Great piece of film making and everyone looked a million bucks.
  4. So we are back to the singular glaring fact; don’t attempt things you can’t deliver on. It’s so painful to see them screw this up so badly. Your most hyped show in company history and confined to the history books as a punchline
  5. I can’t for the life of me understand why they didn’t have a seperate ring set up in the stadium and do it there. There must have been limitations for placed on them and they must have been fully aware of them. In which case a straight no rope barbed wire would have done the job just fine.
  6. Given the pyro from the turnbuckles I’m pretty sure that ending was intentional. As this is pro-wrestling I’m not surprised this was someone’s idea, what surprises me is that they somehow didn’t suspect every man and his dog shitting all over it. I mean seriously, how does that not drive punters away?
  7. As Uncle Dave said, it’s not a landmark but it might as well be given the history and location. All that back stock, would be a crying shame not to see someone try to take over.
  8. Surely the most depressing news of the pandemic. The time spent prior to shows being mesmerised by the sheer amount of puroresu books and magazines https://www.nikkansports.com/m/baseball/news/amp/202101090000663.html?__twitter_impression=true
  9. Steady Gordi, you know there’s a percentage of people who will actually believe that. Put some more sarcasm in there wouldya!
  10. Not really. We are living through a golden period of great workers and superior Athletes. The first Okada v Omega has basically become the template for today’s ‘great’ match. Storytelling, callbacks, length, that match will go down as one of the most important in history for multiple reasons. You can kinda take that as a measuring stick now working up to the 70 min forth match. It’s all subjective of course, apples and oranges. Dave’s just as critical as always, the standard is just that much higher. I’m sure if he went back he would probably push several matches higher up the scale but h
  11. It’s been a boozy ny. The point stands even if my brain doesn’t
  12. Anyone that thinks Omega v Ibushi won’t happen again is either not paying attention or has no grip on reality. It’s not if, it’s when
  13. Sigh. There really is nothing like the New Years puroresu glut. Jan 2 always a soft spot for me as it meant two trips to Korakuen followed by beer and steak. It’s really hard to get fired up about anything due to all the restrictions, but the AJPW tag title match on jan 2 is top of my list to look forward to.
  14. Thanks for that Gedo. NJPW honoured their relationship with ROH. Past that it’s been pretty well established that Meij didn’t want to do business with other groups. He’s gone now, the door is wide open. Once world travel begins again you can guarantee Gallows and Anderson, FTR, Omega etc will be taking dates in Japan. I guess Omega just happened to do Okada’s routine tonight? He doesn’t do anything by accident.
  15. Let’s just roll out the vaccine and start looking forward to Tokyo dome, jan 4,2022 already
