The G1 Climax, NJPW's annual heavyweight round robin tournament and its biggest one of the year, returns for its 28th edition. 20 wrestlers split into two blocks of 10 wrestlers each where they will face one another as they try to accumulate the most points in their block with 2 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. The two wrestlers with the most points in their respective blocks at the end of 18 days will face each other in the final on the 19th and final day of the tournament. The winner of G1 Climax 28 will receive a briefcase, which is subject to being defended, guaranteeing an IWGP Heavyweight Championship match for Wrestle Kingdom 13 in Tokyo Dome on January 4.

But I hope people aware its tv ratings aren't that big. Mostly in the 1.0 range. Meanwhile there's tons of shows in Japan at 20.0

Sumo has fallen but is still bigger than MMA which is bigger than Pro Wrestling.

Im already aware NJPW makes lot of money again but it' still not mainstream in Japan.

I don't really know what your point is OP. But anyone who tells themselves that NJPW is as mainstream popular as WWE are kidding themselves.
Who cares anyway? Does popularity of a product really dictate whether it's bad, good, worth watching or worth talking about?

Recency bias will do that, but its not a glowing beacon that NJPW is doing well. Its made worse that the top three are an entire generation earlier and were immensely bigger names. Remember that a lot of people voting on that would have voted for the current crop just because its what they are watching and possibly even they don't know the previous rosters.

Thoughts on America's Most Wanted? I honestly think they're consistently one of the better parts of early TNA.

inb4 people shitting on Braden Walker. That whole debacle is as much WWE's fault as it is Chris Harris's.

But man that 6-Sides of Steel match between AMW and XXX will forever be one of the top 10 greatest matches back when TNA shown promise.

So as we all know some African Americans in WWE like the New Day and Titus O'neill arent happy about Hulk Hogan coming back. Also some other African Americans like Bobby Lashley don't mind Hogan and pretty much forgave him. As we all heard there's a rumor that Hogan will crown Bobby Lashley as the first African American WWE Universal Champion. So the question is, if given an opportunity to work with Hogan, do you guys think that fellas like Titus or The New Day would change their tune regarding Hogan?

I mean, it's gonna be the elephant in the room every time Hogan is in a WWE ring.

Just like when the rumour was that Rousey didn't want to work with non-whites, suddenly you check every time she's in the ring, is it true?

And now with Hogan: if he's in the ring and WWE just keep black people out of that segment, just to stay clear of any awkwardness, it's still gonna look very curious and avoidant. But put him in the ring with a black person, and suddenly it's hey, is this person being made to give Hogan props, is this a tense situation, are WWE acknowledging Hogan's past or trying to sweep it under the carpet? They're kinda fucked either way, but you kinda should be fucked if you try to disingenuously rehab a racist.

Honestly the best thing WWE could do, if they're bringing Hogan out, is to give New Day a live mic and let them say whatever the hell they want, which'll probably be in line with the statement they made, "Okay, you're back, congrats, we've not forgotten or forgiven what you've done, we're gonna keep doing our thing" or whatever they wanna say. But it would have to come from them - the dumbest thing WWE is doing so far is trying to shape the story themselves when their own guys are saying "that's not how it is".

Dave Meltzer's star ratings will also be posted in this thread should there be any.
Wrestling Observer Live airs Monday to Friday at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST and Sunday at 6pm EDT / 11pm BST in http://taima.tv/r/wooo2
Use this thread to post news as it comes through. Do not use the old thread for anything new, try and move discussion to here instead.

> ROH and MSG reached an agreement to drop legal action in exchange for getting their date back. The description was that MSG had no intentions of taking a lawsuit bullet for WWE. When asked by the New York Post how things changed, Koff said that MSG were the people to ask. Essentially after the legal situation got started, MSG called and offered them back the date.

> WWE is looking at promoting Hogan’s redemption by doing charitable things.

> While not shown on television, at the arena, they aired a video on the late Bruno Sammartino, all-time wrestling hero in Pittsburgh. The crowd cheered this video loudly, as one current wrestler after another sang the praises of the man who was the childhood hero to some, and their parents childhood hero to many others. Except when Reigns was shown. It didn’t matter what he said. The dye has been cast with Reigns. Daniel Bryan can endorse him and the fans will boo the guy they’d never boo. The Rock can endorse him and the same thing not only would happen, but already did happen.

> A major news story that has pro wrestling implications as far as ROH is concerned is that FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that he had serious concerns about the planned Sinclair Broadcasting Group’s purchase of Tribune Media, and that the merger would not be approved as things stand right now. “Based on a thorough review of the record, I have serious concerns about the Sinclair/Tribune transaction,” Pai said in a released statement. “The evidence we’ve received suggests that certain station divestitures that have been proposed to the FCC would allow Sinclair to control those stations in practice, even if not in name, in violation of the law.” The proposed $3.9 billion purchase by Sinclair of Tribune stations would give Sinclair stations in 59 percent of the country, or 215 stations in 102 markets. The law is that no single company can own local television stations that reach more than 39 percent of the country. To get the number down to 39 percent, Sinclair was going to sell 23 stations, but was structuring the deals where they would sell but still control the programming on those stations.

> In the dressing room after the Cow Palace show, after both Juice Robinson and Jay White apologized to Jim Ross, apparently Josh Barnett spoke to both of them, White in particular about why he was so upset about what happened. Ross, who had Barnett on his podcast, didn’t say anything negative about Robinson and White and blamed it on the crew that set up the ringside area for not hooking the barricades together so that they wouldn’t tumble over on impact. New Japan’s timekeeper in another whip into the barricades during that match ended up with the barricades smashing his knee. Ross is doing better, but was in pain all week to the point he couldn’t sleep laying down in his bed and had to sleep in a chair for a few days

We always point him out when watching the PPVs, "hey, guy and his mum are there!". His official name is Guy And His Mum.

I heard a story about how his mum is an executive at Mattel and so she gets them comped tickets, but I don't know if this is true.

There's also Turtle Guy, the guy in the green shirt with the really shitty goatee that has a constant facial expression of "WOW EVERYTHING'S GREAT, THIS IS FRIGGEN AWESOME!" mixed with possibly using dip. Either way he looks douchey and probably loves Roman Reigns.

More rarely is that guy who is over-the-top tryhard punky, with the rainbow mohawk and rave gear. He looks like someone cosplaying as a punk Riffraff and seems to be a massive mark. He absolutely is the stereotypical "fan trying to get himself over" too.

>I just heard not long ago that Howard [Finkel] is in really, really bad health," Lawler said. "Not good at all. He may have had a stroke. I'm not sure but I just know that he's not doing well."

>Finkel started working for Vince McMahon Sr. in 1975. He began performing ring announcer duties at Madison Square Garden shows in 1976 and he was soon the company's lead ring announcer. Finkel was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2009 by "Mean" Gene Okerlund. The Fink has a daughter named Anastasia with his long-time partner Megan McCarthy.

Damn, I hope The Fink can pull through.

I suppose, perhaps, we could begin discussing appropriate clips to show in a "FinkTube", should the need to have such a /wooo/tube block arise (hopefully much later than sooner)?

Pic related is what stands out to me the most. The odd phase in 1999 where The Fink was Jericho's lackey for some reason was gold.

I want to start a thread based around reviewing the gear or attire of wrestlers and factions over the years. Let's talk about wrestlers that you think have either upgraded or down graded their ring gear. What do you like? What don't you like? Apparently Scott Hall toyed with long tights at a house show or two in her s Razor Ramon days.

He has stated it was always a reference to Mallrats and Jason Lee, as he came up with the name before he really started growing the beard. Watch the AKA video WWE put out.

Was that really because she clashed with the look of the show though?

And I don't think the RAW/SD setup is that bad honestly, just kinda unimaginative which is weird because it's probably more expensive than "normal" sets of the past.

The biggest bad thing about it is the loss of real titantrons where the guys do their moves etc.

I can't believe WWE actually completely ripped off TNA when it comes to this. TNA had trons that were just still images or a very short gif years before WWE. It's such a baffling trend. I guess it could just be minimalism but I don't think it has any real purpose not even cost cutting. That kind of minimalism really blows in general in fiction, wonder how much of that kind of stuff is cost-cutting and if doing stuff "the old way" would cost much at all.

Remember when Warrior wore singlets for a short period of time. He wore one at SummerSlam in 93. This one is hideous especially due to the drawing of himeself on his own singlet.

My guess was blue shirt/trenchcoat biker Taker because that's when he typically wore his hair down, but he was wearing the bandanna at that point and this picture shows him coming with a baseball cap. I can only recall him wearing a cap during the Deadman Inc. period, but he had his hair cut by then.

So I have no real clue what version it's supposed to be. I'm glad the figures are starting to come with extra hands though, and a lot of the newer head sculpts are much improved over previous figures. Hopefully that means they're starting to use that face printing tech like Marvel Legends has been using.

Booking rant by George The Animal Steele - Thu, 19 Jul 2018 23:05:26 EST ID:igFlVQcW No.6106109 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Good booking is relative. In the sense not everyone cares about the booking or likes the same approach of booking. I still get assholes telling me when is attiude era is coming back, the same people who hate every other era and fed.

At one point did it had to make sense? Yeah, protecting guys and etc. But you got shrimps who lose like Dbry move over than the protected guys lol. Something obv changed.

But any WWE period would be bashed by a southern fan laughing at the Undertaker or SCSA never getting fired for good by the fucking owner at the same time. Or WWF fan bashing WCW booking.

There's feds at times like Noah (2001 to 2009) which booked terrible yet drew with just workrate moreso than AJPW by Mutoh who booked better even if their style was very low workrate.

And if we had to measure the booking that got most fans into the best, it wouldn't be the indies.

Don't forget tv slots and adversting matters as well. Which helped NJPW grow more, certainly not their booking of pisspoor tags and juniors divisions.

Charisma, mic skills, working the crowd matters. They're what fucking matters in the WWF 80s boom, WCW 90s and ATTIUDE era. They can override bad shit, and sadly most don't have those skills anymore to make a fed interesting.

I also firmly belive WWE fans want the bs back as well, bloated faction wars, interferences and lowblows etc, they still react to that.

Hachi machi, this was much harder to read than it was for you to write.

Yes booking matters. Late WCW had one of the most stacked rosters of all time with guys who could work a crowd and a mic, yet their popularity went to the dumps didn’t they? Why? Those guys who helped to build its popularity in the first place were still there. Hmm these little things we have to ponder 🤔

In the same tone, some of those TNA rosters were incredible and they used them to create some of the worst periods for a wrestling promotion that has been televised. Meanwhile, with a roster without depth has created a better show than that like 2012ish time nowadays. With wrestling I'd never say booking is the most important thing, I think there are many intangibles, some of which that a company can't even control, that make a show good, but if you can't have well written/booked shows, you're already in the hole.
