>Watch NJPW Summer Struggle 2020: Day 5, 6, 7, and 8 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 5:30am EDT / 10:30am BST in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt

EVIL’s defection from Los Ingobernables de Japon at the New Japan Cup finals in Osaka-jo Hall sent shockwaves throughout New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Among the controversies caused was the fact EVIL was a NEVER 6-Man Openweight Tag Team Champion at the time, along with LIJ teammates BUSHI and Shingo Takagi. At the post-Dominion press conference, the King of Darkness made it very clear he had no interest in retaining his title, and the 6-Man titles have been vacated. As a result, new champions will be crowned in Korakuen Hall in the August 6-9 Summer Struggle events, with an eight team tournament taking place. This will be the first six man tag team tournament to take place in NJPW since 2011, who will become the 21st NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions? Here are the lineups for the shows:

>Day 5 - Thursday

*21st NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship Tournament First Round Match: Los Ingobernables de Japon (Shingo Takagi, SANADA & BUSHI) vs. Suzuki-gun (Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado & DOUKI)
*21st NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship Tournament First Round Match: CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada, SHO & Toru Yano) vs. BULLET CLUB (Yujiro Takahashi, Jado & Gedo)
*Six Man Tag Team Match: Golden Ace (Hiroshi Tanahashi & Kota Ibushi) & Yuya Uemura vs. Suzuki-gun (Zack Sabre Jr., Taichi & Yoshinobu Kanemaru)
*Six Man Tag Team Match: Satoshi Kojima & Great Bash Heel (Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma) vs. CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii & YOSHI-HASHI)
*Tag Team Match: Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Master Wato vs. Ryusuke Taguchi & Yota Tsuji
*Singles Match: Yuji Nagata vs. Gabriel Kidd

>Day 6 - Friday

Conventional thinking. If you're using the word "need", then it's Ibushi-heel all the way. On creative alone, it's something that needs to be seen at some point. We know what an Okada heel looks like because that's pretty much how he started. Either way: That team is not working. At all. Maybe if Golden Lovers never existed this would be cool, but the team needs to dissolve and I doubt it's going to be amicable split storyline wise.

That was interesting that Ibushi was very slow to try and save Tana there, and seemed to even consider it when Tekkers was telling Ibushi to attack Tana with them.

Tekkers' backstage comments have been about how Tana is an old fart that is weighing Ibushi down and Ibushi should cut the dead-weight; their title match where Golden Ace lost the belts was pretty much entirely Tana being destroyed.

Could we be headed towards.... Ibushi-gun?

Now that they have officially been forced to concede the Wednesday Night War to a wrestling finishing school? The pro wrestling equivalency of a bunch of pre-debutante teenage girls learning how to bake specialized desserts and sew lace. Do they move nights permanently? Will Cody add spitting water from a water bottle to his gimmick to go along with his sledgehammer as a coping measure? Will he get a big "I hate HHH" tattoo on the other side of his neck? Does /wooo/tube have to pay back the sponsorship money?
What's next?

just because she wasn't accepted into ddt the first time doesn't mean she was laughed out. One does not equate to the other. Especially given whose in charge. That's my point. Far more likely possibilities: 1 She didn't at the time have the constitution for it and they wanted her to toughen up. 2 She was too young and lived too far away (Hokkaido),

>Watch AEW Dynamite with /wooo/ in /wooo/tube - http://taima.tv/r/wooo and /wooo/alt - http://taima.tv/r/woooalt at 8pm Eastern//1am London. Dynamite will be be preceeded by a replay of AEW Dark. On tonight show:
  • AEW World Championship bout Jon Moxley vs. Darby Allin.
  • Chris Jericho debates Orange Cassidy. Moderated by ???? Rumoured to be "Eazy E" Eric Bischoff. Hey remember last year when Vince hired Eric to save Smackdown? Time flies
  • FTR & The Young Bucks & AEW Tag Team Champions Adam Page & Kenny Omega vs. The Dark Order
  • Cody & Matt Cardona vs. The Dark Order (John Silver & Alex Reynolds)
  • Big Swole vs. an opponent of Britt Baker's choosing
  • MJF's campaign to become AEW Champion continues.
>Jon Moxley defends the AEW World Championship against Darby Allin
The AEW World Championship will be defended on tonight's episode of AEW Dynamite with Jon Moxley defending the title against Darby Allin. Moxley and Allin put on a winning performance as a tag team on last week's episode of Dynamite, beating Ricky Starks and Brian Cage. Despite only just returning to action, Allin will get a shot at Jon Moxley's title on tonight's episode of Dynamite. MJF will challenge the winner of this match at All Out.

>Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy will debate with a special guest moderator
Chris Jericho's patience is wearing thin and it's clear that the "Demogod" wants to shut Orange Cassidy for good. Before their rematch next week, Jericho and Orange Cassidy will debate each other on tonight's episode of AEW Dynamite. AEW have also announced a mystery moderator for the segment. It is heavily rumored that the moderator will be former Executive Director of WWE SmackDown, Eric Bischoff.

>FTR and The Elite face The Dark Order
We have a massive 12-man tag-team match on tonight's episode of AEW Dynamite. FTR will team up with The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and Adam Page as they face The Dark Order, led by Mr. Brodie Lee, in tag-team action. The Dark Order haven't really been having a good run of late and this match will be top priority for them.

>Matt Cardona's in-ring debut on AEW Dynamite
Former WWE Superstar Matt Cardona (fka Zack Ryder) made his debut on last week's episode of AEW Dynamite, coming out to save his good friend Cody from a beatdown at the hands of The Dark Order. Cody and Cardona will team up tonight to face John Silver and Alex Reynolds in what will be Cardona's in-ring debut on AEW Dynamite. Cardona recently revealed that he has signed a short-term deal with All Elite Wrestling and will be looking to make a lasting impression tonight.

God damn I LOVED everything about that Dark Order vs FTR/Elite tag match.

Dark Order genuinely felt like they have endless numbers, and no matter how hard the faces tried they just couldn't get through them all. The match itself was really good, and it was absolutely booked the right way to set up the coming split.

God damn that finish by Brodie looked great too.

Hangman is probably the most improved person since AEW began, I remember early days he had a lot of detractors, and people were pissed at how much he was pushed, but he's such a good face now.

  • WWE NXT Tag Team Championship bout: Imperium vs. Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly.
  • WWE NXT Women's Championship #1 Contender decider: "The Nightmare" Rhea Ripley vs. "My NXT womens' top heel can't possibly be this cute?!" Dakota Kai
  • Bronson Reed vs. "Help me, I'm Shitposting" Shane Thorne
>Pat McAfee rolls in to NXT tonight
> Time to talk Bay Bay! Pat McAfee is ready to clear the air with Adam Cole and is headed to NXT tonight hoping to do exactly that. The last encounter between McAfee and Adam Cole resulted in a heated exchange and the former NXT Champion shoving one of the radio host’s producers. Triple H joined “The Pat McAfee Show” a couple days later and reiterated Cole’s apology in an attempt to ease tensions between the two. Now, McAfee will take a mid-honeymoon break to try and relieve some of the drama from his professional life and bury the hatchet with Cole. Will the former NFL Pro Bowler be able to mend the relationship, or will another war of words break out with the longest-reigning NXT Champion in history?

>Keith Lee to face Cameron Grimes
> Cameron Grimes had big plans for the most recent episode of NXT. He wanted to take out NXT Champion Keith Lee and end the month of July with the title around his waist. Instead, Lee sent Grimes to the moon with a devastating Spirit Bomb. Grimes suffered a jaw contusion as a result and went off in a WWE Network exclusive. Grimes called Lee a “coward” and promised to teach the champion a lesson about respect. Will Grimes be successful?

>Rhea Ripley faces Dakota Kai for the chance to challenge Io Shirai
> Dakota Kai arrogantly declared herself the No. 1 Contender to Io Shirai’s NXT Women’s Championship, but Rhea Ripley isn’t about to let her to the front of the line without a fight. The two will square off tonight with the winner earning the right to challenge Shirai. Kai’s intentions have been clear for weeks. She kicked down the door with a vicious boot to Shirai’s face after her defense against Tegan Nox last month. The Captain of Team Kick delivered déjà vu last week when she again attacked Shirai, this time before they battled in tag team action. And once again demonstrating her self-interest in transparent fashion, Kai bailed on partner Candice LeRae during a tag team match, leaving her in the lurch for a loss to Shirai and Nox and announcing she was done “jumping through hoops” for a title opportunity. But Ripley, a former NXT Women’s Champion, took issue with Kai crowning herself as No. 1 Contender, defiantly staking her claim to face Shirai. Will Kai finally earn the chance she feels entitled to, or will Ripley come one step closer to becoming a two-time champion?

>Imperium to defend the NXT Tag Team Titles against The Undisputed ERA
> The Undisputed ERA is trying to get its groove back, and they’ll look to do so at Imperium’s expense when Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly challenge Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner for the NXT Tag Team Titles tonight. Since bringing the age of Imperium stateside and becoming champions, Barthel & Aichner have remained largely unthreatened — until last week. Before Imperium could address the NXT Universe after defeating Ever-Rise, they were assaulted by Fish, O’Reilly, Adam Cole and Roderick Strong. With no championship gold for the first time in more than a year, The Undisputed ERA channeled their frustration directly at Aichner & Barthel, and now they’ll look to take their titles. And as if that isn’t motivation enough for Fish & O’Reilly, they’ll also be looking for retribution from this past January at WWE Worlds Collide when they fell to Imperium in Eight-Man Tag Team action. The Undisputed ERA have already made history as the only three-time NXT Tag Team Champions. Is a fourth reign imminent, or will the age of Imperium continue on the black-and-gold brand?

Getting a massive kick out of the fact that the nerds on circlejerk think that a guy who's been a dominant heel for 2 years in NXT is now getting knocked out by a football player.

Like go ahead and convince yourselves that it's cool to have a prick heel be turned face because Pat AntiVirus beat him up. It's embarassing. Must suck to stan for the losing show all the time.

https://www.f4wonline.com/other-wrestling/georgia-police-looking-marty-jannettys-claim-murder-316926?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

>Columbus, Georgia, police told TMZ Wednesday they will be looking into a claim Marty Jannetty made on Facebook Wednesday that he killed a man when he was 13 years old.

>In the now-deleted Facebook post, Jannetty claimed that as a 13-year-old, he was working at a bowling alley buying marijuana from a man who took him out to the back of the building to sexually assault him.

>"That was the first time I made a man disappear," he said. "They shoulda looked in the Chattahoochee River..." before continuing to ramble about a Jamaican woman he was in love with. Jannetty is 60 so the alleged incident would have happened at some point in 1973.

>The department told TMZ they have some current active homicide investigations as a priority, but "the first step will be seeing if we have any missing persons or unidentified remains cases that match the limited information in the post."

>Jannetty has been known to make outlandish claims on Facebook frequently including a 2017 post where he had to later clarify he didn't want to have sex with a woman he once considered his daughter.

>The former WWF star was part of The Rockers tag team with Shawn Michaels and over three separate runs in the company, he held the tag team titles once with Sean Waltman and won the Intercontinental belt.

The first few posts are from this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter. For the full newsletter and much more get a subscription at http://www.f4wonline.com/
Dave Meltzer's star ratings are now posted in their own thread, so look on the board for it.
Use this thread to post news as it comes through. Do not use the old thread for anything new, please move discussion to here instead.

> For a number of reasons, as it turns out, the pandemic was the greatest thing for WWE’s business as they posted the most profitable quarter in their history. It’s not that they overcome the pain of the pandemic. They outright benefitted from it, with more consumer product sales, higher network numbers and the real difference maker, far lower costs to produce television.

> Profits quadrupled in the quarter, blowing away all estimates, due to saving $51.6 million in media costs. The vast majority of those savings was the lower cost of producing television the way they do it now in the Performance Center, no longer running live, and taping multiple shows on successive days as opposed to live Monday, Wednesday and Friday in different parts of the country with far more wrestlers, production people and costs.

> For one, taping two weeks had a time for each show, and taping shows on successive days, saved travel costs greatly. Producing a show in a small building greatly cut down on the production budget, not to mention the fewer production people and costs that were already lower were cut almost in half from there by generally taping two shows at a time. Plus there was savings on uplinks by no longer doing any shows actually live, as even when taped the same day, they never actually went live. The second positive was a huge increase in subscribers to the WWE Network. The number was 195,000 above what would have been normally expected as of 6/30.

> There are a number of factors involved here. One is that WrestleMania had so many people subscribing for free as compared to the past few years, that many of them didn’t cancel and stayed on as paying subscribers. Another reason, arguably the most important because ESPN’s PPV numbers for UFC were so much higher than previously, and AEW also set records in PPV, is that with sports bars are closed, and people are no longer getting together in large numbers for PPV parties. Thus, if you have let’s say five people watching a WWE show together, now maybe you’d have one or two, and if the others wanted to watch, they’d buy the WWE Network when they wouldn’t have needed to in the past.

> In addition, the WWE Network changed with two other factors. The free month gimmick where you could watch the PPV, and then cancel, has been dropped. There are no more free months. While they now have a free tier, the PPV shows and a lot of the programming is not available on that free tier. Plus with that free tier, that you don’t even have to sign up for, more people are exposed to an aspect of the WWE Network. The free tier constantly promotes the paid tier, where the most attractive content resides, like the PPVs, Undertaker’s Last Ride, and other new and old footage.

> All of this has led to more people becoming new subscribers, at least short-term. Total views of at least one minute of different programming on the network were up 55 percent from last year even though the subscriber average number for the quarter was down 1.6 percent due to the gains coming late in the quarter.

> For what it’s worth, when Vince McMahon was asked about the increase, he passed to Jayar Donland, who had none of those answers aside from the new free tier. “There are a few things going on,” he said. “I am not going to touch of anything specific on the free version. But obviously, launching that is a contributor. But I just think, in general, our promotion across our platforms. We are doing new things across the digital and social ecosystem, as well as with our TV partners. You would have been able to sample content on ESPN or FS 1 driving back to the network.”

> It should be noted that the ESPN shows were before WrestleMania, and WrestleMania paid was the lowest for any WrestleMania in several years, so that has to be largely ruled out as a key factor.

> “We talked about some of the compelling content we have had, everything from Undertaker’s Last Ride, and we are an attraction business,” said Donlan. “ I think we have had some really fanta…

He could have had an operation to help with the pain, but he had a "this is how God made me" mindset or something and went with alcohol instead, if I'm remembering correctly.

Fuck AEW

Cody said AEW wasn't going to "bloat" the AEW roster with ex-WWE talent. There's now a lot of ex-WWE talent in AEW. Discuss.

Nothing hurts starpower more than actually being on WWE TV.

Ryder deserves a shot more than anyone. He grabbed the brass ring and WWE killed him for it.
