>Yano Dome is closed for another year. RIP


THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EST / 8pm GMT in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and shows promotions outside of Dragon Gate, NOAH and current NJPW. Join in as everyone argues why their favorite fed is superior and Yanopost, Anopost, CIMApost and dance like Keita until your tummy is full from all that snackpine.
>DG Tube is on Thursdays at 8pm EST / 1am GMT in Mondai Night Ryu - http://taima.tv/r/mondainightryu and features the latest and classic Dragon Gate shows. Other stuff is featured here from time to time as well. (like cheesy 80s films or the mega marathon before Kobe World)
>NJPW on AXS TV is also on Thursdays at 10:50pm EST / 3:50am GMT (10:20pm EST / 2:30am GMT if Impact! is uploaded) in /wooo/tube and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt showing recent matches on tape delay with English commentary by Jim Ross and Josh Barnett. Replays air on Fridays at 11:45am EST / 4:45pm GMT in /wooo/tube.
>Besides /wooo/tube and /dg/tube, MokoTV provides IPTV feeds that are now blown wide open and you can watch whatever is airing on Samurai TV, Gaora, or G+ in there, at least until it's fixed by the Chinese pirates. http://taima.tv/r/mokotv

Outside of Puro Tube, there's usually a few puro marks in the chat that can help fill you in on storylines and find you matches. Just show up outside of big shows like Raw, and you'll find someone in there to help you out. Puro matches also show up in the playlist, so scroll around to find them. NJPW, DG and DDT live events are regularly streamed in the tubes, check the schedule for details.

>THE MAJOR FEDS:

NJPW: Oldest and largest promotion in Japan. Owned by Bushiroad and is booked by Gedo. His booking gets the tubes riled up sometimes (all the time), but the match quality generally makes up for it. In the midst of something of a revival, and although you may argue that it is already drawing to a close, they are still doing good business at the moment. They run one of the largest shows in wrestling, called Wrestle Kingdom, every year on January 4th at the fabled Tokyo Dome. Most every show they run, large and small, air in the tubes. They have a slew of foreign wrestlers on their roster right now. They also have a wonderful streaming website over at http://njpwworld.com/

Dragon Gate: Almost certainly the second largest promotion in Japan. Born out of the Toryumon promotion, which was the brainchild of Ultimo Dragon, their style is a mixture of classic puro, cruiserweight/junior heavyweight sprints, and lucha libre. Stable warfare is a huge part of the promotion, with most every wrestler in the company being aligned with a unit in some way. Though it is a big promotion, they retain a grassroots feel, with wrestlers selling merch before and after shows, and running many shows out of community centers and gyms. Most of their large shows air in the tubes, and footage is also posted here. They also have a show that is filmed monthly in their little studio in Kobe called Prime Zone which is wacky, fun, and full of Mondai Ryu schemes.

DDT: Indie promotion gunning for the second-largest-in-Japan spot alongside Dragon Gate. Founded in 1997 by Sanshiro Takagi (a big Stone Cold Steve Austin fan), they have taken the western sports entertainment style to the next level with ridiculous matches and outrageous gimmicks, like violently gay wrestlers, promos done in PowerPoint before matches, championships specifically for dark matches, and blow-up dolls and ladders winning titles. Despite the goofiness, there is tons of talent there, with names like Kota Ibushi, HARASHIMA, and Kenny Omega having been regulars at one point or another. They have released ddtuniverse, which is like NJPW World. A streaming site for all your DDT needs. The other companies that work alongside DDT also have their stuff on there. They, like NJPW have a great streaming service over at http://ddtuniverse.com/

AJPW: Still rebuilding from the glory days of the 80s and 90s, when icons like Jumbo Tsuruta, Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Toshiaki Kawada, Stan Hansen, Genichiro Tenryu, and Akira Taue loomed large. They were nearly killed after Misawa formed Pro Wrestling NOAH, taking most of the roster with him, but after a decade and a half of turmoil, they are doing fairly well right now, thanks in no small part due to the efforts of Jun Akiyama. The 80s/90s classics are a must-watch for any new puro fan, and their current product ain't bad either. They recently announced a new streaming website is currently in the works, and more will be mentioned and revealed in the coming months.

NOAH: Founded in 2000 by Misawa after leaving AJPW. Was arguably the best fed in the world for a few years, featuring the Four Pillars of AJPW and new faces like KENTA, Naomichi Marufuji, Go Shiozaki, and Takeshi Morishima, but since Misawa’s death in 2009, they have taken quite a nosedive. It was being booked by Jado, but has since been sold. NOAH is now working on rebuilding. They are currently working a lot with (skeezy) Japanese indie wrestlers such as YO-HEY and Hayata. Some very talented foreign wrestlers, including Zack Sabre Jr. and Chris Hero, have worked for them as well.

BJW: Founded in 1995 in the midst of FMW’s deathmatch craze, Big Japan became their successor much in the same way CZW became the new ECW. Famed for being the first promotion to use lighttubes in deathmatches, as well as tons of other crazy shit. Over the last few years they have begun toning down the blood and carnage, and have awesome Strong and Tag Team divisions with many talented wrestlers, but this is still the go-to promotion for deathmatches in Japan. They recently joined aboard the streaming train and unveiled BJW Core, which is their streaming service. It is found over at http://bjwcore.com

Currently doing a script for a bio video on the history of Pro Wrestling NOAH. I'm currently wanting to make it a five part series:
Part One: Building the Ark
Part Two: (first show in 2000 to Kobashi winning the GHC Title in 2003)
Part Three - The Blazing Sail (2003 - Misawa winng the GHC Title in 2006)
Part Four - The Perfect Storm (2007 - Kobashi being released in 2012)
Part Five - Shipwrecked (2013 - present)

This is what I got for a script so far on part one:
When people talk about Japanese wrestling, the main company you will hear people mention is New Japan Pro Wrestling. But even going further, you'll hear people mention FMW or All Japan, and even the niche DDT and Dragon Gate. But there's one that doesn't get mentioned as much, Pro Wrestling NOAH. I will be discussing the beginning of the promotion's history, it's rise, and decline. And now, to board the ark.

The birth of NOAH can be traced sadly, with a death. On January 31 1999, Giant Baba, the founder and owner of All Japan Pro Wrestling, died. Leaving his widowed wife, Motoko to run All Japan, but she had help. With her was newly made company President, Mitsuharu Misawa. Misawa was the Ace of All Japan. During the 90's, All Japan was at it's height with Misawa, and three other wrestlers in a planned Four Pillars booking style made by Baba. Misawa...Toshiaki Kawada...Akira Taue...and Kenta Kobashi...Baba planned to run All Japan with these four as the stars of the company.
There was a flaw however, what about after they age or get worn down? What of the 2000's? There were foreign wrestlers like Stan Hansen or Steve Williams that were stars, but for native talent, the only one that had potential was Jun Akiyama. Misawa's first plan as President was to prepare Akiyama's path as a pillar. That plan, like many others he had, was delayed. Mrs. Baba was very conservative when it came to wrestling. She didn't want to expand or adapt to the new directions going on in the wrestling world at the time. Misawa wanted to take a company that had an American Territory atmosphere, and prepare it for the 21st century. He made his mind, he had to leave.

On 5/28/2000, Misawa was removed from his position by majority vote of All Japan's executive board. It was an unpopular decision for the wrestlers, and it also did not help that contract renewals in All Japan were done in mid-June. Two weeks after Misawa's removal, All Japan's board meeting saw five board members resign. Co-Vice President Mitsuo Momota, Chairman Akira Taue, and directory members Kenta Kobashi, Kenichi Oyagi, and Yoshihiro Momota. The next day, Mrs. Baba released a two-page written statement, claiming Misawa "took no responsibility and abandoned his duty." The statement, most likely made to persuade the All Japan wrestlers siding with Misawa to stay with All Japan, but it was all for naught, because when it came time to renew contracts, the only wrestlers to re-sign their contracts to stay in All Japan were the wrestlers Mrs. Baba mentioned in the statement that were rumored to stay to keep Giant Baba's wish to keep All Japan alive: Masanobu Fuchi, and Toshiaki Kawada.
Misawa would have a press conference in front of 100 reporters and photographers. He announced that this new promotion that he would lead would have it's first show in August at the Differ Ariake, and answered many questions about how he's indebted to Giant Baba and wishes Kawada to do well in his decision with All Japan. The following day, he officially named the company: Pro Wrestling NOAH. A reference to the story of Noah, who built an ark and put two of every animal in the world on it, before God destroyed the world by flooding it, and start the world anew. Nippon TV, the television network that was with All Japan since it's foundation in 1972, cut ties with All Japan to join NOAH. August was approaching, and Misawa had a roster, a television deal, a headquarter, and partnerships with Independent wrestling promotions like FMW. The Japanese Wrestling fandom awaited for NOAH's first show, but how will it go?


What are your thoughts on this project? Any corrections or grammatical errors that need adjustment? Any places with a lot of great information on NOAH's history?

Interesting idea for a project. I think Misawa's death and the fallout should be its own part as it played a major factor in the fall of NOAH.

Pretty sure NOAH gets mentioned at the same level as any of those promotions, with the possible exception of AJPW, because of their 90s stuff. I've seen people on leddit talk about NOAH for example but never FMW or DDT

Found an interview with a Japan-born puro buff & IWC pioneer, found his insight on the native perspective pretty fascinating & worth sharing:

Q: Are there things about Japan/ puroresu that you think westerners have a hard time understanding?

>A: Oh, where should I start...
>I believe any form of entertainment is heavily influenced by the culture of that particular country. You probably can't enjoy puroresu as much as people in Japan do unless you know the language and culture of Japan. Not just the certain aspects of the matches, but also broadcasting style, angles, interviews, the way media covers the angles/matches, etc. I believe the same goes to lucha libre. Even in the U.S. and Canada, pro-wrestling used to have different style in each territory.
>When Rikidozan opened the JWA dojo, he brought a lot of customs and "undocumented rules" from sumo, which was based heavily on the "nenkjoretsu" (seniority-wage system) and what we call "taiikukaikei" (sport team system/mentality) of Japan. Unless you understand these two, plus the stronger hierarchical society, it may be very difficult to fully enjoy puroresu. Even I have difficulty explaining them to non-Japanese sometimes. I believe these factors had a huge impact on the popularity of the feud between Fujinami and Choshu, Tsuruta and Misawa, and Misawa and Kawada, as well as the promotional rivalry between Inoki and Baba.
>I've been SLOWLY working on my PuroresuWiki and planning to add more to the Glossary of Japanese terms category so that I can provide some more cultural/social info in order to help others understanding puroresu better.

Q: Have you had much contact with fans / message boards in Japan? English-speakers have almost no idea of what "smart" Japanese fans think.

>A: Yes, but we usually don't like completely breaking kayfabe among the fans either. Well, at least in my generation...
>Here's a big difference between Japanese and Americans. I believe this has something to do with the last question too. Let me over-generalize a little bit. Americans want to make everything clear even when they don't need to. They have to take sides on every freaking thing which exists on this planet. On the other hand, Japanese like making things blurred even when they have to make up their minds to draw a clear line. If you try to make everything clear, they think you don't belong there. I'm not saying which society is better or worse. Just a difference of the culture.
>Many Japanese fans enjoy discussing puroresu like it's a real sport by keeping the things blurred. I guess you can say it's the suspension of disbelief. Of course, things have changed over the years due to UWF/MMA and the infamous books by Peter Takahashi. There are, however, still some message boards whose rules prohibit breaking kayfabe in the discussions. Of course, there are ones in which people enjoy acting like "smarts", but they seem to be younger generation. Let's say, it's something like "yeah, we know that, but why do you have to mention that when we are enjoying it just fine?"

Q: Maybe this is something you didn't deal with much in rural areas, but why is there so much tolerance of yakuza activity in such a clean, orderly society like Japan? That is what I am most confused about.

>A: Good question. I wonder why too. But then, I wonder if Japan is really "a clean, orderly society". Eh, maybe compared to the US, it probably is. There is one thing I've been wondering, however. As bad as the existence of yakuza is, Japan might have had higher crime rate, especially in the individual level, without yakuza. Unlike the US, drugs and guns are controlled by yakuza. What if yakuza didn't exist? There may have been a lot more "ordinary" people committing crimes. Again, I'm just wondering and hypothetically speaking here.

Q: It seems clear that Japanese fans believed wrestling was real when it started, and now they all know it isn't. Here in the US, goofy gimmicks and a hostile press exposed kayfabe decades ago. Did anything specific happen to break kayfabe in Japan?

>A: Similar to the US, there were always people who criticized it for being fake, all the way back to the Rikidozan-Kimura match. Still, I believe the ratio of people who believed it was "real" over those who thought the otherwise was much higher in Japan. As far as I know, major papers such as Mainichi, Asahi, and Yomiuri haven't covered puroresu results since the Rikidozan era. All sports papers still do, however.
>In modern day history, the biggest impact was probably the second version of UWF, which would eventually evolved into the MMA in Japan. I still don't think that was the biggest reason for the decline of puroresu popularity. I believe the failure to create a true crossover star was as much as the UWF/MMA if not more. After all, we haven't had a real star since Inoki and Baba.

Q: Why did "gaijin" remain such an important part of puroresu, even after WW2-related hostility faded? Was it about having enough great foreign wrestlers so that Japanese promotions would be seen as world-class?

>A: I wouldn't say "world-class"; to this day, neither All Japan nor New Japan has recognized its own version of the "world heavyweight champion". They never claimed to be the top of the world (although in the eyes of many fans, they really were). But at least they meant to be "international". Also, having gaijins would provide more variety in the bookings. I believe Rikidozan set a pattern by bringing different gaijins for each "series" (tours), having them beat the prelims and mid-carders just to get beaten by Rikidozan at the end of the tour. That way, those gaijins can always have a fresh comeback to Japan several months later. Usually, the gaijins were heels and Japanese were hometown heroes. This style continued until the mid-1980s.
>So, what changed? It's hard to pick one factor. Between the late-1970s and the early 1980s, some gaijins became so popular that they could no longer be booked as the heels (the Funks, Mascaras, Backlund, Steamboat, Hogan etc.). Still, they were always "gaijins" anyway. The rise of Riki Choshu in the early 1980s brought the hot feuds among the Japanese natives and showed a possibility that the promotions may not always have to rely on the gaijin talents.
>Another thing was the national expansions by WWF and JCP in the US, which limited the gaijin stars available to the US. Both companies always wanted to keep their top stars on their own tours, and the guys who used to wrestle in Japan could no longer be there. The so-called "world" champions stopped defending their titles outside their companies. On the other hand, some gaijin talents who were not signed by WWF or JCP (or decided not to) started wrestling in Japan almost every series. This might have lessened the line between the natives and gaijins. For example, some Japanese guys started teaming with gaijins regularly (Tenryu & Hansen, Kobashi & Johnny Ace).
>One more thing. This may be just my opinion. At least in puroresu (not in lucha libre or American style), the best match between two Japanese is always better than the best match between a Japanese and a gaijin. I think those great feuds among the natives in the 1980s and 1990s showed that.

Q: Was wrestling from the US widely watched in Japan? I know it has aired in Japan in one form or another for a long time, but it's hard to tell whether it was really that important.

>A: I don't think so, at least not in the pre-internet days. Magazines always had coverage on the wrestling scenes from North America, but in terms of the video footages, not much. New Japan and All Japan often showed matches from other countries especially when Japanese stars toured in those countries or NWA World Heavyweight Title was changed hands, but that was about it. Once a while, they might show a TV studio squash involving the wrestler(s) who would come to Japan for the first time, but it was rare. TV Tokyo, a minor network, used to air a weekly show in the 1980s featuring the cards from North America, but it didn't last long. The show also brought the controversies because they often showed the regulars of New Japan or All Japan and brought conflicts with other networks that had contracts with those promotions.

Q: Did you start watching US pro wrestling after you moved in '87? If so, how did you feel it compared to Japan?

>A: I couldn't wait watching the US wrestling. As soon as I got here, I checked the TV Guide and looked for it. What a total disappointment it was. Immediately, I was embarrassed to admit that I was a wrestling fan. We were always told that the US was the "mecca" of pro-wrestling. Historically it was, and maybe it still was then and is today.
>But imagine this. Here I am, growing up watching more realistic stuff from the early 1980s in Japan where it was treated more as a sport compared to the US, and what did I get? The infamous mid-1980s cartoony WWF, GLOW, etc. All the free TV shows were filled with squashes and interviews, which meant nothing to someone like me who didn't speak much of English. Plus, some of those shows were taped at small TV studios, which was unbelievable to someone like me who was so used to watch arena cards broadcasted live on TV. Looked so cheap. Well, it was the late 1980s, and wrestling in this country was already something to laugh about anyway...
>Speaking of the interviews, it is another big difference between Japan and the US. In Japan, we had a belief that real warriors show what they have in actions but not in talking. It changed over the years, but traditionally, samurai should keep their mouth shut. Here in the US, fighters had to talk before they actually show what they were supposed to do. Most of the time, they talked way too much AFTER the match when they were supposed to have fought tough matches and be too tired to talk. It took some time for me to realize that's just a difference in the cultures.
>Similarly, another cultural difference was the gestures and reactions. I've heard some people say Japanese were boring/bland, but to us, Americans are over-reacting and loud. Soon after I came to this country, I learned that that's how Americans were, but I couldn't connect that to pro-wrestling for a while and kept wondering why they had to talk too much before, during, and after the matches with a lot of facial expressions like they went insane. Again, I had to learn that's how Americans are in general. Until I got better idea and sense of the language and culture of this country, I never knew what was so great about Ric Flair. I still don't think he is the greatest, but now I understand why he is/was so popular here (I guess he was a great worker, but to many Japanese fans, he didn't look very realistic, especially compared to other world champs such as Race and Bockwinkel) and eventually became a fan myself.

Basically they treat it like any other entertainment show. Keep in mind that kayfabe magazine were also a thing in the West, up to relatively recently, even though modern day online and crowds are unbearably smarky

I'd presume it's the general Americanization of booking & presentation. The top stars and most successful bookers of modern puro are Sports Entertainment marks, which isn't even a knock; post-defense promos serve a defined purpose, Gedo & Jado were just versatile enough to utilize it. The puro companies that stuck to the traditional puro company way because that's just how you run a puro company are the AJPW's & NOAH's of the world that people get depressed just thinking about.

Not nearly as interesting as the other dump and TBH you've probably heard it all before but this was Ditch's last ever Puroresu Pulse before moving on to other actually-paying things & after 200 issues of reporting puro's worst years ever I feel for him:

>Section 4- The Greatest Illusion In Wrestling History

>The best of Kings Road, the best of shoot-style, arguably the best of joshi, Strong Style, hardcore and lucharesu: that's what we think of as the hallmarks of puroresu in the 1990s. After ten years of buying tapes and DVDs, I'm still finding new 1990s matches to enjoy, and in some cases the matches would easily be MOTYCs had they taken place today. Regardless of your specific wrestling preferences, as long as you can stand Japanese announcing there's something for everyone from that decade. Thanks to commercial releases, far more footage is available than was for the 1980s. With the all-clean-finishes mindset and the development of the "lots of nearfalls" big match style, the '90s are more accessible to new fans. From a business standpoint, there were more dome shows and more 10,000+ gates than the decades before and after, perhaps combined.

>That's why it's so hard to accept that the 1990s are when things completely fell apart for pro wrestling in Japan. But it's the truth.

>Reason number one: television, television, television. All Japan and New Japan were pushed from primetime to the broadcast periphery. New promotions failed to find lasting support, even if they were drawing well. The famously great TV run All Japan had in '93 wasn't enough to save it from a time reduction at the start of '94. As a result, the stars of the '90s aren't household names the way those of the '70s and '80s were. The difference between Inoki and Hashimoto is the difference between Hulk Hogan and Randy Orton, and Hashimoto is by some measures the greatest draw in Japanese history. Wrestlers debuting in the '90s, such as Akiyama and Tenzan, had it even worse. With no ability to create pop culture stars, puroresu could only hope to milk as much as possible from existing fans.

>Reason number two: the talent decline. I've written in numerous places about Japan's demographics and how MMA stole away top athletes, so I won't rehash it. The bottom line is that there was a lot less cream in the '90s compared to the '70s and '80s, especially in the heavyweight ranks that matter.

>Reason number three: hitting the ceiling. The natural escalation of highspots and gimmicks reached essentially the limit. Hayabusa's Phoenix Splash, the Tiger Driver '91 and vertical drop DDT, the explosion deathmatch; it's hard to top those things from a "wow" standpoint. When you can't improve the highlights, it's tough to keep the fans coming back, especially when competing with real violence in MMA. In terms of regular sports I'd liken it to MLB and the NFL. Football has progressively bigger/stronger/faster/better athletes and a game that's more offense-minded as the years go by. Baseball, meanwhile, seems to chug along at the same basic performance level decade after decade (excluding the steroid era... which saw a rise in fan interest).

>Reason number four: Japan's Lost Decade. While Americans were scared of the Japanese economic machine in the '80s, that machine stalled in the '90s and is still struggling. There are competing theories as to why, and what could have been done differently, but there's no denying that the Japanese economy was not in good condition during the '90s. I don't know if payouts were worse for the big stars, or if ticket prices had a relative decline, so I can't point to a clear harm... other than that Japan was not able to compete with WWF and WCW for elite talent, whereas in the past they always got the best wrestlers in the world to pass through. Weaker gaijin have definitely hurt.

>The end result of those factors was obvious by 1999. Fewer great matches, fewer exciting storylines and feuds, and by that point the joshi, hardcore and shoot-style promotions were dead and/or decimated.

>If all that is true, how was puroresu able to have all those epic battles, sellouts, stadium shows and so on? One word: density. Specifically, population density. What wrestling fans remained were very interested in a wrestling style that was peaking, didn't have frustrating booking like the old days, and still had lots of incredible performers. Shows were worth going to even if you couldn't watch the TV shows leading up to them, and perhaps a lack of convenient TV actually helped make buying a ticket seem vital in some cases. Because tens of millions of people were a short distance from shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama and a few other big cities, promoters only needed to have a fraction of a percent of those people hooked in order to sell out. It wasn't like the '80s where two nationally known grapplers would go to a double countout in order to set up a rematch, meaning that promotions on primetime broadcast TV struggled to fill Nippon Budokan and didn't even try to use stadiums; fans knew they'd get satisfying outcomes in the '90s and so they showed up.

>Joshi puroresu was in many ways a microcosm of this. The '80s were the peak of joshi as a pop culture phenomenon, and the great '90s talents were drawn in at that time. '90s joshi is generally considered better from a work perspective, and they did more big arena shows (including the Tokyo Dome in '94), but they replaced screaming teenage girls with a mix of women and standard male wrestling fans, so the crop of future stars was diminished. The joshi talent level, match quality, and highspot escalation all reached a point of decline and/or diminishing returns in the mid-90s. Add in a big financial scandal in AJW and the bottom absolutely fell out for joshi by the late '90s. The attendance decline, from 10,000+ several times a year, to 5,000+ as a "good" attendance for big events, to struggling to fill Korakuen, is a progression that we can unfortunately expect for the big heavyweight promotions. Hopefully they avoid "yay we got 1000 people!" near-death like current joshi, but I wouldn't count it out for 5-10 years down the line. There's even a parable about relying too much on crossovers and dream matches, but considering that I want *more* interpromotional stuff I'm in no position to expound on that.

>Over the years of writing Puroresu Pulse, I've spent a lot of time taking aim at booking mistakes in New Japan and NOAH. Inoki pushed New Japan to the brink and drove away a huge portion of their fanbase; NOAH failed to cultivate the future. But none of that mattered in the face of the external forces beyond their control. No TV, economic stagnation and few recruits were enough to doom the industry to at least some measure of decline. The good times of the 1990s couldn't possibly last forever.

>Let's be thankful that the times were good enough for us to still be sifting through '90s footage in 2011. My aborted “I Love The ’90s” could literally have gone on for five years. For as much as I’m down about the present and future of puro, I continue to be astonished at how incredible the past was. A lot of great wrestlers and great matches don’t yet have the respect they deserve, and I’ll keep plugging away in the hopes of changing that.

Dated 9/26/2011. So 3 months before Okada returned & made Puroresu great again.

Like why does seemingly everything have to go back to TV execs being evil or just plain dumb? Does post-90's lucha have a similar problem with TV?

I can deal with or even perfectly live in peace with so many screwed up things on this planet that people are up in arms about these days, but entertainment decay in general not just wrestling pisses me off to no end. I obsess about it so much I guess I'll have to get off my ass and actually try to learn how all my favorite decaying entertainment businesses work and why they got so fucked up over the years past all the usual reasons I've seen over the years. And no it's not just internet being a colossal leech on all other media, even if that's a big reason it's probably far from the only one. The usual explanations never made total sense to me and there's probably so many weird socio-economic reasons why all my favorite shit growing up not only crashes but failed to recover and get back anywhere near its former glory.

I'm still leaning towards WWE letting Bryan wrestle again just to avoid something like this.
Ideally IMO Okada-Ospreay becomes a title match so that he can already tie it & get it over with, and KENNI~ wins the NJC & the title. Seems like the best reason for losing his US belt in the first place. What happens after depends on if you wanna rush into Okada/Naito Dome Wars III or hold it off until 2020.

Yeah, it's pretty odd. I could understand them wanting to wait to see how long he'll be out before announcing anything, but it's been 2 weeks & nothing's been said yet.

Also, if the recent house shows are any indication, it seems like Kzy's slowly forming a new unit with Genki & Susumu. My guess is they'll either formally announce it shortly after the Korakuen show, or wait until it's close to DoA.

So today was the beginning of the 2 day Champions Gate event in Osaka & so far:

>Punch Tominaga won the Brave Gate from Yasushi Kanda, following a mistimed red box attack from Shingo. Kanda will get a rematch at Memorial Gate at Wakayama
>Big R ended his losing streak by pinning Gamma with the Shot Put Slam in a tag match with Ben-K against Mochi & Gamma
>MaxiMuM retained the Triangle Gate against Tribe Vanguard in what was said to be "a heck of a match."

Finally watched Kzy vs Mochi. Damn, that was one hell of a match. Maybe my memory is fading me, but has there ever been a match that actually ended in those typical flash pin sequences? I never seen an exchange like that before for a finish.

Alright, Day 2 of Champions Gate has finished:

>T-Hawk & Eita defeated Genki Horiguchi & Susumu Yokosuka to retain the Open The Twin Gate Championship. Kzy decided to challenge with Genki after the match & the two will face T&E at Memorial Gate in Wakayama
>Big R picked up another win, pinning Zachery Wentz with the Shot Put Slam
>Kagetora came out wearing MaxiMuM merch, seconding the group.
>Masaaki Mochizuki defeated Ben-K via ref stoppage to retain the Open The Dream Gate Championship. Ben-K looked great against Mochi & was caught in a Triangle Choke when the ref stopped the match. Big R challenged Mochizuki for the Dream Gate following the match & the two will face off at Wakayama for the title.

So far, here's the card for Memorial Gate:

>Punch Tominaga (c) vs. Yasushi Kanda (Open The Brave Gate Championship)
>T-Hawk & Eita (c) vs. Kzy & Genki Horiguchi (Open The Twin Gate Championship)
>Masaaki Mochizuki (c) vs. Big R Shimizu (Open The Dream Gate Championship)

Also, all 4 title matches from the two Champions Gate shows will be played on /dg/tube this Thursday.

Does anybody have any strong opinions or interesting trivia about Takeshi Rikio?

I'm fascinated by just how much of a non-entity he is. It's been almost 10 years since I first saw his name flicking through title histories on Wikipedia, and reading about the end of Kobashi's reign a few weeks ago is literally the second time I'd ever seen it. That's insane. For most of a decade I've considered NOAH's homegrown boys Kenta, Go, Marufuji & Morishima with Sugiura as a late-blooming outlier yet this motherfucker predated all of them? And ended Kobashi's reign to do it? And went NOWHERE?!

He just wasn't that good. He had a really good match against Taue though and his tag team with Morishima produced a lot of good stuff. Classic example of someone pushed too much for their own good.

His beginning work was his best. He won the Tokyo Sports rookie of the year, got over as an underdog which is amusing, considering he was big. His career can be summarized as being like Mikey Whipwreck. Over, but not enough to be a proper World Champion.

In terms of drawing, NOAH just never produced good young talent. Rikio was over, until he won the title. Marufuji was super over, but they couldn't get the heavyweight strap off him fast enough. They did everything right with Morishima and to a lesser extent Go, but neither of them really became stars capable of replacing Kobashi and Misawa.

I have to wonder if from day 1, NOAH fans took it as less of a continuation of All Japan, but rather a nostalgia show, which could feature new talent, but they were ultimately only interested in reliving the glory days of the 90s.

I'm happy that my boy El Desperado, with Yoshinobu Kanemaru, who I really like, are Tag Team champs. My only criticism is that they won it too early right after Sho and Yoh just won it from the Young Bucks.

Apparently Akebono just recently woke up from a 10 month coma following a heart attack, firing which he lost 150lbs. He also apparently needs a wheelchair most of the time, although he can walk short distances.

He's a HOSS kiwi whose name was starting to get out there like...3-4 years ago? Zero-1 Champion, AJPW Tag League spot, EVOLVE's last Styles Battle tournament... then he just kinda dropped off the radar as quickly as he'd blipped. :(
According to cagematch he was MIA for the first half of 2016, and for the past few months too. So either he's injury prone or non-committal (presuming the two absences weren't mutually exclusive situations).

Alright, final card for Memorial Gate in Wakayama is out:

>0. Yuki Yoshioka vs. Oji Shiiba
>1. BxB Hulk, Yosuke♡Santa Maria & U-T vs. CIMA, Gamma & Problem Dragon
>2. Dragon Kid & Kaito Ishida vs. Jason Lee & Shun Skywalker
>3. Open the Brave Gate Championship Match: Punch Tominaga (c) vs. Yasushi Kanda
>4. YAMATO & Ryo Saito vs. Shingo Takagi & El Lindaman
>5. Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino, Ben-K vs. Kzy, Susumu Yokosuka, Genki Horiguchi vs. T-Hawk, Eita, Takashi Yoshida
>6. Open the Dream Gate Championship Match: Masaaki Mochizuki (c) vs. Big R Shimizu

Show should be a lot of fun & the main event is likely gonna be fucking amazing, but sadly, Memorial Gate is usually never aired live & won't be seen until later this year on DVD.

Also /dg/tube will be tomorrow at its usual time.

That's disappointing to hear, kinda have to wonder what's the point if they aren't gonna offer a livestream then

Anyways, speaking of Dragon Gate, so looking at huge main event in Korakeun Hall on 4/6 is an Oedo Style Elimination 5 vs. 5 match with Genki Horiguchi, Punch Tominaga, Susumu Yokosuka, Kzy, and "brother" YASSHI vs. Shingo Takagi, Eita, T-Hawk, El Lindaman, and Yasushi Kanda, so 2 questions, what's an Oedo Style Elimination and also when the hell did YASSHI leave Antias?

And I guess a 3rd question I should add now, how likely will YASSHI betray everyone?

the last show before the 3 matches from the first strong climb show that was uploaded was the feb 12th house show. that was uploaded on march 6th.

they do not upload full shows. every match is it's own separate video. the entrances on the korakuen shows uploaded to core are cut out as well.

When did the NJPW tradition of stars wearing t-shirts to show that they don't care about the tag match that they're currently in start? Is it a relatively recent thing? I never really thought about it much but now it seems like a pretty shitty thing to do to the fans that are in attendance.

Suzuki-Gun vs LIJ was really solid, but that's about it.

there was a funny/awkward moment just now in post-show interview where ZSJ said something to the effect of "when im champ ill defend it all over the globe, in Britain in front of my boys, in America, in Mexico, actually no, fuck Mexico." Which made Taka immediately go "oh no, don't say that! Stop it!" and cut ZSJ with his own promo.

If this isn't part of some elaborate work to get him int the ring with Negro Casas I'mma be fairly peeved.

Also do you mean he cut off ZSJ with his own promo? Or that he cut one ON him?

I think it might be a reference to him working Mexico last year. He faced Negro Navarro in Lucha Memes (yes that's the name of the company) and the whole story was that Zack came in as this guy hyped up for his trechnical prowess and this old lucha maestro tied him into half a dozen knots with holds that Zack had never even seen before, so the story was that Zack kept getting pissed off and eventually started striking instead which lead to him losing.

Neat little character consistency to have him want to stay away from Mexico after that if that was the intent.

I rewatched it to get it more accurate and he said ‘Suzuki-gun is gonna take over Britain, then America, not Mexico, Mexico can fuck off’ Taka said ‘ohhh don’t say that’ and Taichi starting shushing, Sabre adds ‘what? You wanna go to Mexico?’ Then taka says ‘stop it’ and starts his own promo in Japanese

Felt less planned and more, “let’s not piss off CMLL”

I'd much rather we get Okada-Ibushi at Dominion and then Naito-Okada at WK13 if they're going the rematch route. Save Naito's big win for WK, let Okada win the G1 and then pick him. Doing a Natio-Okada rematch at Dominion feels too soon, especially since their WK12 match didn't set the world on fire

They could also have Ibushi win the G1 and have him face Okada at WK13. Or have Kenny take the belt off Okada and do the GL blowoff match for the belt at WK13, though I doubt they'd go that route.

Already seen it. And everything else online from his SA tour. Even the Chile/Peru stops.
The way I saw it he loved the experience & wants to go back. IIRC he even said he wants a rematch with Navarro to the press backstage at the show. So I read it more as b8in someone (my immediate presumption being the similarly-built similarly-styled similarly-cheeky CMLL guy who's been defending Mexico's honor lately).

Also I'll argue that's an oversimplification of the story of the Navarro match. Zack got out-grappled true ("knots" being a particularly apt description of Negro's style) but as I remember it that just made him grapple more aggressively. Strikes compliment his submissions. IIRC the very finish was him finally cinching in HAYSTOWBBTTLTIMOPWLUATH and Navarro reversing it.

It wasn't just that Navarro match though.

He got his shit destroyed by Daga as well, who out wrestled, out struck and out violenced him.

I really hope his comment was a nod back to his loses in Mexico which were easily some of the best matches I've seen him in, almost enough to make me stop hating him for the wrong reasons (wrestling style/match quality) and start hating him for the right ones (him being a massive heel cunt).

Red Shoes' son gonna get manhandled. I like how Lion's Gate has become a place where New Japan books indie dudes to work with their young boys. Same show's got Nakanishi vs Oka, Nagata/Yoshida, and Hiro Saito tagging with Tenzan.

Also, Wrestling Hi no Kuni is basically LIJ vs SZKG: The Show. Undercard is standard, but then you have BUSHI vs Despy, Hiromu vs Kanemaru, SANADA/EVIL vs KES, and Suzuki vs Naito back to back as the top 4 matches on the card.

That's Daisuke Sekimoto. He's one of the top stars of Big Japan Pro Wrestling (BJW) Strong World Heavyweight Division. BJW was known as a deathmatch company for many years, but in the past ~5 a heavyweight non-deathmatch division has become a major part of it, a 2nd top belt.

I'd recommend almost any match in which he tags with Yuji Okabayashi as Strong BJ; the best are usually against teams like Twin Towers (Shuji Ishikawa & Kohei Sato) amd Yankee 2 Kenjuu (Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto); there's also a really great one from a little over a year ago against Hideki Suzuki & Takuya Nomura. He's had various singles matches for the BJW Strong World Heavyweight Title, against guys like Okabayashi and Hideki. An under the radar gem I'd recommend is Sekimoto, Masato Tanaka, and Takashi Sugiura vs Okabayashi, HARASHIMA, and Yuji Hino from 6/30/15; an incredible trios match with some of the best on Japan's indie scene at that time (and now, even if Okabayashi is injured and Hino is just now getting back into the swing of things from his). Also Sekimoto and Okabayashi have had some great matches in All Japan over the past couple of years; I'd watch Sekimoto vs Zeus, Sekimoto vs Miyahara, Okabayashi vs Zeus, and the Strong BJ vs Big Guns trilogy.

Good to know that VoW nonsense was just fucking nonsense. There was always gonna come a time where CIMA isn't needed in Dragon Gate outside of big shows, so no shit he's gonna spend his time focusing on OWE between it all.

So in an update to the Dragon Gate Network, the very first DG show, "Toryumon Comes To Japan" has been added. The only thing from the show that's cut from the show is the TV studio segments & the intro, with Ultimo Dragon's appearances & Tokyo Go remaining intact.

Here's an overselling CIMA from said show.

So, this happened:

>Interesting thread going on Takagi’s Twitter. He’s usually all banter and complaining. Today he thanked everyone for their support and praise during the CC.

>He followed up by saying anyone who wants to see matches like that shouldn’t come to a DG show.

>Of course, he got lit up with if you don’t like you should go somewhere else comments.

>He replied that you shouldn’t be mad at him, but mad at the others. If they aren’t fighting with purpose, there can only be stagnation. He also wondered if there was any promotion that would put up with his bullshit.

>His complaint is, he doesn’t feel anything from the new generation. He wants a clash of ideals, to fight for whose ideology is the right one.

>He also said he has grown to love DG in his 14 years of service and his goal is to reform it. This is all in character. 😄

>YAMATO with a reply now. Says when he has wrestled elsewhere it has just made him appreciate DG more. But, maybe Takagi has a complex and wrestling giants is therapeutic.
>They became wrestlers for a reason. Careers and life are short so you should do it without regret.

>If you haven't gotten your tickets by now you're gonna have a tough time.
The only tough time people are gonna have is finding seats that aren't ass for less than $80. New Japan SEVERELY overpriced this show and they're definitely not gonna get anywhere near selling out unless a supercard is revealed.

Pic related. Every blue dot is a seat still for sale. Floor seats are $150 minimum. First ring of the deck is $120. Second ring is $100. Third ring of seats start at $80, then go down to $50 about midway up. Corner seats are $40. And for some reason, all the seats in the red circle are only $40, yet rows behind them are more expensive, and the section directly in front of them is $120. Keep in mind as well these are all the prices +$14 Ticketmaster fees. They're either going to have to reduce prices or announce an ultimate mega card to get anywhere near selling out.

Red ring is likely obstructed view, lighting rigs and/or video screen probably is partially in the way.

Also yeah, I checked lats night and just now and there's still a lot of floor seats available, and even more of the $120 tickets in-between floor and bleachers. When booking a 10k seat arena NJPW should have slightly lowered prices compared to the 1k or so arenas they ran in Long Beach. Instead they raised prices with even more tickets to sell and so they probably will only draw between 5k and 6k.

If I can get time off from work I'll definitely go to this, but I'm wondering if I should just buy a nosebleed seat and expect them to shuffle the nosebleeds down closer to make the arena look fuller on the day of the show.

>Red ring is likely obstructed view, lighting rigs and/or video screen probably is partially in the way.
I thought that too, but then by that logic the seats directly behind and ahead of them can't be $80 and $120 respectively and be obstructed view. Especially not that wide a range of seats. I've been to the Cow Palace and the seats marked aren't that far from the seats behind them, nor are they exceedingly higher up or lower between one or two rows. So unless they set up lighting gear directly in that area, I can't see what would obstruct the view to warrant a $40 price.

>Today we would like to make several announcements.

>Dragon Gate President Takashi Okamura is stepping down from his position due to illness.
>Domestic operations will continue under a new company+ Dragon Gate Entertainment, Inc. Dragon Gate Senior Management member Toru Kido will lead Dragon Gate Entertainment operations.

>Nobuhiko Oshima (CIMA) will assume the role of president for Dragon Gate Inc. This branch will focus on Shanghai, China. T-Hawk, El Lindaman, & Takehiro Yamamura will be Dragon Gate Inc. roster members and will compete for the Shanghai based OWE promotion. While this will decrease their appearances in Japan, we hope fans will continue to support their efforts while they undertake this new challenge.

This is wrong. CIMA is president of Dragon Gate Inc (not Dragon Gate Entertainment), and his job is basically going to be heading up the Chinese operations of DG.

No, it's likely to have a stable roster of people who know what they're doing. Essentially they need to make sure OWE has some experience behind it, so they're sending CIMA, T-Hawk, Linda and Yamamura to make sure it's not just raw Chinese recruits.

For some reason, I have a feeling they won't be talking too much about that whole thing again.

But yeah, everything that happened in DoA makes a lot of sense. But honestly, Shingo taking over ANTIAS, Big Ben winning the Twin Gate etc. was all for the best. Much more interesting than just "T-Hawk, Linda & Eita run ANTIAS to mostly apathy."

None of this denies the likelihood of the CIMA issues being true, if anything creating a made up position and fucking him off to china just reinforces this

Well, Jae's been answering some questions to clear things up & going off of what he's said:

Yamamura isn't cleared, at least not yet. I guess he's going to China to work on his recovery with CIMA. T-Hawk & Lindaman will be going with the other 2 to China/OWE, but they'll all stop by in Japan whenever they get the opportunity, similar to CIMA just wrestling in Kyoto for Dragon Gate a few days ago.

Look, if people still see validity in those rumors, then there's nothing else to say other than "let's see how it plays out." Who knows? Maybe the VoW story is true. I have my doubts, but hey, anything can happen.

One thing I really hope that comes out of this is Eita finally getting the motivation he desperately needs. With T-Hawk & Lindaman going to OWE for now, him being the #2 behind Shingo now in Antias & slowly being passed by Ben-K, Kzy & Big R, he really needs to deliver in the King of Gate tournament.

So why'd they take the belt off Kenoh? Did he just not want to sign and that's why or was NOAH retarded and figured they were fine without him?

I mean, the place was small, but when Kenoh was champ, he got the first legit sell-out show in quite a while for NOAH. Putting the belt back on Sugiura was kinda dumb. The fact that they were pushing Go recently too before this fuckery with Nakajima is alarming too because the fans can't get behind go. It was apparent with his title reign too. I mean did they not want Kenoh as champ when he does his outside appearances? Like I legit don't understand why they took the belt off Kenoh.

No one knows. If you believe anything people say you're fooling yourself, it's just puro smark twitter rumors.

But if we were to believe that, Kento absolutely does not want to work with Nakajima in any form. Nakajima is apparently open to working with Kento. There's been rumors of bullying as well as rumors of Nakajima/Diamond Ring wanting to hold back Kento

It's fun to believe but it probably doesn't hold much weight and we might see Nakajima/Kento this year or next

I'm questing for the origins of the Van Vader name/gimmick and found an episode of the Stone Cold Podcast where Big Match Leon claims the fans at Sumo Hall were so mad during his debut that "they lit their pillows on fire before throwing them at the ring".

Can't find a supporting source anywhere. Is he bullshitting or did it actually happen? Any stories of it happening elsewhere?

Tozawa-juku from the beginning was just meant to be a comedy undercard unit & I don't think Dragon Gate ever expected them to be as over as they were. They ran with AraKen & Iwasa as Twin Gate champions for some time, but I wish the unit got a bit more.

CIMA, El Lindaman, T-Hawk & Yamamura gave an interview promoting OWE. There's also some talk about the situation between CIMA & Dragon Gate.

>They are building an arena to do the weekly shows in. Scheduled to be done in mid June. Won’t be the Shaolin Temple.
>Priority is Shanghai, then Asia, but they want to accept any offers the schedule allows them to help promote the OWE name. That includes Japan and potential appearances for DGE (Dragon Gate Japan).
>There’s some talk about the philosophical differences CIMA and Mr. Okamura had in the past. It’s mentioned that DGUSA was ended (left inactive?) because Okamura wanted to focus and solidify business in Japan.
>CIMA was named successor last year but it wasn’t announced because he still had things to accomplish as a wrestler. Separating the companies became a topic after the first OWE show.
>CIMA was going to go alone, but T & Lindaman asked if they could go. He tried to dissuade them because it’s a huge risk but in the end they decided to be crazy and go for it. Yamamura still has a ways to go, but once he is ready he will join the “band of dumbasses”
>T-Hawk has no regrets towards Japan. It’s all or nothing to make this work so he has to be all in. Not that All In. He seems excited and really motivated/stimulated.
>Lindaman had his first solo plane ride on that trip to Australia last week. He’s didn’t bring a blanket and was cold. ....
>CIMA apologized and really regrets the way things got announced and how he left without saying anything. With Dead or Alive, they didn’t want to make an announcement that would take attention away from the show.
>He & T had to leave immediately because they had the Shaolin Temple show on 5/7. (The one that will be on Twitch this weekend). With KoG starting and needing to be the new start for DGE, the timing just didn’t work out to do a full press conference.
>He gave his neck, knees, and his shoulder for DG, he’s prepared to give everything else he has for OWE.

So there you have it. Doesn't sound like there's massive bad blood between CIMA & Okamura, but at the end of the day, they had their differences & CIMA wanted to take on a new challenge. The fact that wrestling in DG Japan isn't off the table says to me that this wasn't as hostile as the DG/Toryumon split.

Bruh, that Sekimoto/Umino match from Lions Gate ruled. I get the feeling that they booked Shota to be in there so much because Daisuke is an outside guy, but that's fine because it made for a great underdog match that actually had an air that he had a chance despite being outclassed in size and experience. Place goes nuts when he hits a German on Daisuke, it's awesome.

I have brought this up a few times but now with some of the talent going to China with CIMA and some units looking thin now, especially Antias, you think Dragon Gate could consider bringing other guys from smaller companies to help fill out the roster, like say bring in Hercules Senga, Tsutomu Oosugi, Ken45, or Daichi Sasaki from Michinoku Pro, Tank Nagai or Kaji Tomato from Kaientai Dojo,, Ultimate Spider Jr. or Takoyakida from Osaka Pro, or even bring back LEONA from Dradition, just to give these guys a bigger place to showcase

I mean granted, Dragon Gate probably prefers using their own guys to build up anyways

It was a pretty bad flop, but a lot of it couldn't be pinned on SaiRyo. A lot of circumstances was just out of his control & he never had the belt long enough to see if it would've worked out.
It's a shame too, because his work in 2005 vs. Blood Generation was fantastic & he's likely never gonna get another run as Dream Gate Champion.

Random thought but I wish people would shut the fuck up about "I wish X went to New Japan". Fucking hell it's almost as much as "I wish X went to WWE" now. Don't people understand that you can't have a company full of main eventers? If all your favourites are in a single place half of them have to lose. You don't get to see them all be champions.

his mma record is predictably shit but he fought almost every MMA legend in their prime (and most of the time while they were on ridiculous amounts of roids) and he was a tough motherfucker. renzo gracie, ken shamrock, wanderlei silva, rampage jackson, anderson silva all beat him. ironically one of his few MMA wins is against bob sapp - not because he won the fight but sapp got DQed for slamming him.

there's a match from NOAH circa 2001 that's just otsuka & hashimoto vs misawa & ogawa in a tag match and they actually just stiff the fuck out of each other for 15 minutes. it rules.

anyway i'm 99% sure that .gif comes from a 1998 tag match with Otsuka & Hisakatsu Ooya vs Yuki Ishikawa and Bob fucking Backlund. i don't know why he was there either. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EOVaD3j9cw

Pretty much everything has been stellar that I've seen, although I skipped most of Ospreay & Scurll because I think they're shit and a couple of Kanemaru matches because they're good but too samey when you're binge watching the tourney.
Hiromu was the stand-out performer by a long way though, so if you're short on time just check him out then catch up on the rest. Best days are any block B days

It's a marathon, not a sprint man. They've been doing a decent job building guys like Shun, Big Ben & Kzy, but none of them are at the level of popularity of guys like YAMATO, Yoshino, or Doi yet & they don't wanna put them in the position of a Kobe World main event until they are absolutely ready.

So it seems like Shingo said what a lot of native DGE fans were thinking yesterday & he got quite a bit of support for his comments.

Also, for the 2nd time this month, a fan attacked Eita at a house show. Apparently, some angry Dragon Kid fans have not only been trying to assault him, but have been making threats towards him over Twitter.

Shingo Takagi has a plan to reform Dragon Gate:

>Takagi has a plan for reform after he wins the title. He will firmly install himself as player ace, as well as take over as company president.
>Broken down veterans will be released. Rookies that can’t keep up will be sent overseas with no assistance and will have to fend for themselves.
>Anyone from other promotions that lives up to his standards will be brought in to replace those that don’t.
>Run Ryogoku
>Discounts for middle school and younger kids
>Open door policy for wrestlers from other promotions
>Reduced ring time for veterans
>Rookies that don’t progress stay on NEX
>Take steps to get away from the “pujoshi” fan base
>Ship Shimizu & Tominaga overseas.

>>6092881
That's true, but Jae talked about how the pujoshi fans can be loyal, but can drop the product on a dime & the turnover rate every 3-5 years tends to be pretty high. With the angle they're doing, Takagi is looking at moving away from that & establish a more loyal fanbase for Dragon Gate.
