>Watch AJPW Raising an Army Memorial Series 2020: Day 3 at 5:30am EDT / 10:30am BST in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo

AJPW concludes its short Raising an Army Memories Series 2020 tour with the third and final day from Korakuen Hall before Real World Tag League 2020 kicks off next month on November 18. After the Triple Crown and GAORA TV Championships were defended last week on Day 1, today’s show will see AJPW’s other three championships on the line with the World Tag Team, World Junior Heavyweight, and All Asia Tag Team Championships being defended. In the main event, Violent Giants looks to continue to solidify itself as one of AJPW’s greatest tag teams after surpassing Toshiaki Kawada and Akira Taue of The Holy Demon Army’s 10 combined title defenses in August. They’ll face the up and coming Enfants Terribles’ Shotaro Ashino and Kuma Arashi looking to become champions for the first time AJPW after jumping from the now folded Wrestle-1. Here’s the lineup for the show:

AJPW World Tag Team Championship Match: Violent Giants (Shuji Ishikawa & Suwama) (c) vs. Enfants Terribles (Shotaro Ashino & Kuma Arashi)

AJPW World Junior Heavyweight Championship Match: Koji Iwamoto (c) vs. Atsuki Aoyagi

All Asia Tag Team Championship Match: Purple Haze (Zeus & Izanagi) (c) vs. Francesco Akira & Rising HAYATO

Tag Team Match: Evolution (Dan Tamura & Hikaru Sato) vs. Hokuto Omori & Yusuke Kodama

Ten Man Tag Team Match: Wild Menso (Takao Omori & Black Menso~re) Masonobu Fuchi, Mitsuo Momota, & Ryuki Honda vs. Yoshitatsu Kingdom (Yoshitatsu, Ryoji Sai & Yusuke Okada), Ishikiri, & Chikara

Six Man Tag Team Match: Kento Miyahara, Yuma Aoyagi, & Daisuke Sekimoto vs. Jake Lee, TAJIRI, & Masato Tanaka

Welcome to this years puro thread! Continuing from last thread >>6243531

THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>NJPW Strong airs weekly on Fridays at 10pm EDT / 3am BST in English in /wooo/tube 2 - http://taima.tv/r/wooo2 and in Japanese in /wooo/alt 2 - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt2. Replays air on Saturdays at 4pm EDT / 9pm BST also in /wooo/tube 2.
>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and shows promotions outside of Dragon Gate and 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.
>Shoot Style Tube is on Sundays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST also in /wooo/tube, which usually feature classic Japanese Shootstyle wrestling shows and matches from the past and present.
>DG Tube shows replays of recent Dragon Gate live events and PPVs when scheduled - http://taima.tv/r/mondainightryu

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. They recently joined the streaming bandwagon over at https://dragongate.live

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. CyberAgent owned DDT and NOAH have merged under one corporate umbrella CyberFight and they, like NJPW have a great streaming service over at https://www.ddtpro.com/universe

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 also joined the streaming sensation sweeping Japan rig…

to avoid the misinformation: takanori fukuda is the president, idk who the booker is but i've heard it's shuji ishikawa but that sounds extremely absurd to me, yoshitatsu is not doing commentary.

Dave Meltzer's star ratings are now posted in their own thread, so look for it.

> The WWE draft, held on the 10/9 Smackdown and 10/12 Raw shows, with a few lower picks at other times, saw most of the talent stay with their brand, with a few switches. The champions all stayed with their brand aside from a trade of tag team champions, with Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods (who beat Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro for the Smackdown tag titles on 10/9) going to Raw and The Street Profits going to Smackdown. They had both on television on 10/12 and they simply switched belts. There was an unmistakable series of trades of people of similar level, but the key take is that of what appeared to be the company’s three hottest acts, Roman Reigns & Paul Heyman; The Mysterio family vs. Seth Rollins & Murphy, and Bayley vs. Sasha Banks, Smackdown got all three. Perhaps one could argue that Raw did get The Fiend & Alexa Bliss combination.

> Perhaps the most talked about aspect was the split up of The New Day, with Kingston & Woods moving to Raw as tag team champions and Big E staying a single. The idea is to get Big E away from the act and make him more serious for a singles push. Historically, WWE has broken up tag team acts in the draft before and while there are exceptions, most of the time they find out the combination of parts was more effective than the parts individually. One would suspect E getting a major singles push, which was talked about weeks ago and somewhat started. The idea is to get him out of the comedic mode. There is a logic to it even though, because the New Day has been established together for so many years and have been popular, there was going to be a negative reaction breaking them up without a storyline leading to it.

> Trying to use logic to explain the draft is a waste of time. Such as, if acts can be drafted together, why did Raw pick Woods & Kingston and not Big E when it was specifically stated acts will be drafted together and in the WWE’s own listings of who can be picked, The New Day was listed as all three together. But that wasn’t the only act broken up. Lucha House Party was a similar situation, with Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik moved to Raw while Kalisto stayed on Smackdown. So in this case, they had spent weeks building up the split and feud with Dorado and Kalisto with Metalik in the middle, and dropped it cold without so much as one match. Heavy Machinery was also broken up even though they were supposed to be grouped together. Tucker is a very good athlete and talented, but he’s going to have a very difficult time as a single. Plus, with his size, it looks silly to put him in a jobber role because he’ll make the heels look small. There was no reason to break them up, also because even if the idea is of Otis as a single, they actually had good believability as best friends, and Otis is far better playing off Tucker as the straight guy than on his own.

> A few acts, Elias on Raw and Lars Sullivan on Smackdown, returned after lengthy absences. Elias had surgery for a torn pec and they did an accident angle where Hardy was accused of running him over, but it was later said to be a guy with red hair and a red beard (Sheamus). But Elias returned as a heel and blamed Hardy nonetheless. Sullivan had major knee surgery, and it got infected at one point keeping him out even longer. But he has been ready for some time and they waited until this week to bring him back.

> There was controversy on Sullivan because of tweets he made before he was in WWE on a bodybuilding forum. Even though they happened before he was with WWE, and WWE was aware of them long before and had said all was okay, when they resurfaced when he was on the main roster, WWE fined him $100,000, which was a real umber. He also apologized toa number of wrestlers as well before suffering the knee injury. Riddle was still being used and pushed after the lawsuit was filed against him, but that was also a situation the company had investigated and known about for more than one year. Plus, the company itself was being sued. But they did stop cold the mentio…

This is some pretty incredible revisionism to try lay the blame at AEW and WWE's doors.

Wrestling on the indies was fast paced and included lots of high spots before AEW even existed, and that style definitely didn't spawn in NXT.

These threads are always dead af man. What happened to all the buzz about Roman's epic heel run? Why not just have a 'WWE weeklies' thread at this point? Maybe NXT still deserves its own thread cos there's a war going on brother, but every RAW and Smackdown thread is absolute piss.

Watch Wrestle Princess with us next Friday. Every title is up for grabs and pretty much everyone who watches will be there to answer questions, unless you have something specific you want to know now.

Also don't expect high workrate from everyone up and down the roster. You got your good workers in Miyu, Yuka, Mizuki and the likes, but then you have some absolute stinkers like Raku who is probably the worst worker on the roster (out of all the members of the roster, shes the most idol-ish and it shows, although her sling blade does look good).

Why did you stop watching in the first place? I had a massive falling out with "pro-rasslin" and months after fell in love with this, entertaining, character based promotion, completely different than most where everyone takes themselves too serious. This is the fun I needed.

There is a lot of post processing that needs to be done on things like soap operas and film to get the correct color tone you want, the right level of contrast etc etc. Soap operas use high contrast with lower gama to make eyes sparkle and pop under the lights, along with a slight motion blur effect to keep things hazyish.
Editing makes a difference too. When you have the ability to get all the coverage you need with as many camera angles and takes as you want you can make some super cinematic looking shit. Insert shots, reactions, whip pans and rack focuses etc etc.

The dance they had was shot as if it was live, and probably only had a few takes. You can tell by how red Jericho gets before the end. The audio is also not quite live. They probably had wearable mics on with limiters to cut background sounds out, with the music played off to the side. You can tell they edited it back in over the vocals later.

That was actually good though and was done as humiliation of Aces & 8s like the funeral they did for Nash (I think) years before that one. The musical was just a clownshow that barely tied into anything or accomplished anything.

>the point is if TNA could do it, why can't AEW
Just because ya could don't mean ya should, which has been the story of Chris Jericho since the pandemic started. Also why the fuck would you wanna copy TNA, especially the shit that didn't draw a dime?

Is he kind of the perfect example of how WWE can’t establish or even sustain talent anymore? Just watched his debut on Smackdown and he was over like rover. We all know about the Sami match. How do they consistently seemingly try to fail like this?

I see your point about current talent but to be fair, the internet blowing up the way it has over the last 10 years with youtube/dailymotion and social media making it easier to watch indie wrestling makes the fact that wwe being athlete based rather than entertainment based understandable to a certain degree. The fans see more in ring elsewhere, they demand more in ring in the major leagues. And the super cena era is an underrated factor in how wrestling died even more since 2001.

WWE doesn't want to establish talent. It just wants to suck up as much talent as possible in it's midcard churn.

>there's no obvious shitter in WWE

Reigns is still Universal Champion

When is the last time a WWE heel actually explained themselves?
