Imagine thinking

A) "yes, I want a new, extra-legal monarchy controlling the world and the intricacies of my life"

and subsequently

B) "and yes, I want someone like Vince McMahon to represent that new monarchical class"

Mostly this.

And as a related sidenote, the only thing I was meh toward about the John Oliver thing earlier this year was him using the "big up, mah nigga!" clip as evidence that Vince is shitty and evil.

It was clearly a joke meant to portray Vince as an out of touch old boardroom fuck compared to the streetwise young champion. It was a playful joke, complete with Booker T there to react to and cement the absurdity of the situation. Anyone genuinely clutching their pearls over it is making a mountain out of a cardboard standee of a molehill.

> ROH’s pulling its contract offer from women’s champion Kelly Klein, saying she breached her existing deal by disseminating e-mails with that information to Adam Birch (Joey Mercury), led to a story in Newsweek two weeks ago. For some clarifications on things sent out by Birch and B.J. Whitmer, Klein’s husband, who previously worked at ROH as a producer before taking a job with AEW, Klein had a $20,000 per year contract with ROH for 2019, which allowed her to work anywhere else but that ROH would get first dibs on her services. Klein, 33, had worked 19 dates before her in-ring year ended on 10/26 when suffering a concussion in a match with Lana Austin in Newport, Wales.

> ROH and Klein had been in negotiations on a new deal. ROH had offered her $50,000 for 2020, but the new deal would be exclusive, in the sense she could not work any independent shows in the U.S. or in the province of Ontario. ROH pulled the offer and Klein will remain under contract until 12/31. Given her concussion, and only two shows left, it is unlikely she will drop the title in the ring and no announcement has been made regarding it. “What really surprised me is we’ve always had great dialogue with Kelly in the past,” said ROH COO Joe Koff. “Issues could have been addressed. For some reason she chose to disclose a private e-mail that tarnished our image and was a clear violation of the contract.”

> Koff said that as of right now, Klein is still under contract and that if she was medically cleared, they would welcome having her defend the belt on shows between now and the end of the year. Of course that isn’t going to happen. But the far bigger issue raised in Newsweek were claims by Klein and Birch, and three others who were not named, saying ROH only has medical personnel at shows when required by local commissions and that Klein herself was treated by a doctor who worked for the local venue. Klein told Sports Illustrated that no medical personnel were at ringside or backstage at the event.

> ROH denied the story, with Joe Koff claiming that the doctor in question on the night Klein was concussed was provided by ROH, not the venue, and that inn commission states, they will use commission doctors, but for all other shows, they have medical professionals at the events. He claimed the company has protocol, that the doctors at the arena take the first look and the company monitors the situation. Koff noted that both he and Greg Gilleland, the ROH General Manager who has come under fire many times of the years, had texted Klein over the course of several days after the injury. And when her symptoms of a concussions started to occur, they booked Birch and Klein for an extra night in London before flying them back.

> Koff claimed that they have a concussion protocol, which they told Newsweek dates back to 2016. The protocol is said to be turning it over to their medical professionals. They also allow talent to use their own doctors and they would not be allowed to perform until they are cleared. Birch and Klein claimed there was no policy and Klein asked to see the policy in a November meeting with Koff, who told her they had one but it was not written. Klein said she wrestled another six minute after suffering the concussion and laid on the locker room floor for about an hour before getting any medical attention.

> Koff said he was told Klein didn’t realize she had a serious injury until some time after the match and that when given the choice of going to the hospital, she declined. Koff said he texted her and she told him he was fine as soon as he heard she was injured. ROH has paid for her medical treatment up to this point. Koff said told Sports Illustrated his intentions were to make sure she’s whole, which would indicate paying for medical treatment if she needs it after the end of the contract.

> Koff noted that T.K. O’Ryan, who had been out of action for months but was believed to be the wrestler who suffered from post-concussion issues that were thought to be possibly career threateni…

Even as recently as September, Fightful was saying Okada's treatment was the reason for why NJPW won't work with Impact: https://www.fightful.com/wrestling/report-njpw-s-deal-axs-tv-expires-january-2021

>They also don't want to partner with iMPACT because it adds nothing and will piss off their current North American partners.
Honestly, at this point, I disagree:
-Most importantly, Anthem could offer NJPW a stable weekly TV presence across the US, Canada and the UK (in addition to whatever crossover they want) which would only help them as they expand NJPW USA.
-NJPW isn't even using ROH talent anymore. and they're standing by Dragon Lee in the wake of the CMLL split.
-Impact would use Young Lions on excursion A LOT better than ROH. Plus I think Elgin & Moose returning to NJPW would be well received.

I totally understand that NJPW doesn't want to work with Impact. That's their prerogative. But the only publicly-stated explanations ("Okada's mistreatment", "they're loyal to ROH") don't hold up as valid explanations. And neither does the argument that "Impact has nothing to offer them"

NJPW can spurn Impact all they want. It doesn't necessarily mean, its a good decision, and it doesn't mean Anthem are the bad guys if they don't want to keep paying to broadcast NJPW on AXS then.

>We went a whole year without a new thread. RIP Hiromu thread

>Puro Tube is on Tuesdays at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST in /wooo/tube -http://taima.tv/r/wooo and mainly 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.
>DG Tube is on Thursdays at 8pm EDT / 1am BST 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 and recently OWE)
>NJPW on AXS TV is also on Thursdays at 9pm EDT / 2am BST in /wooo/tube featuring matches from latest shows with commentary by Kevin Kelly and Don Callis/Rocky Romero. Replays air on Fridays at 2:15pm EDT / 7:15pm BST (1:20pm EDT / 6:20pm BST if there are two episodes) in /wooo/tube.

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.


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 athttp://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 athttps://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. They, like NJPW have a great streaming service over athttp://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 also joined the streaming sensation sweeping Japan right now. Their website can be found over athttps://www.ajpw.tv

>Wrestle Kingdom is a two day show
For what reason?

Harold Meij explained why in a recent interview:

>Meij said there are a lot of eyes on Japan for the coming year because of the Summer Olympics and the demand for the product, they opted to do two Tokyo Dome shows in January. He added that he doesn’t foresee it being a yearly tradition of running back-to-back nights at the Dome.

Realistically though it's because January 4 falls on a Saturday and given how big NJPW is now, they can't fit every title match and big matches like Liger's retirement matches and Jericho-Tanahashi on one card so they're spreading it out over two day, which would make the event more profitable given they're selling more tickets and merch.

If Britwres was even done properly, they would have had talent to bring in when they lost bigger names. They didn't. Britwres was gunna die off at a slower rate than it did.

Sin Cara granted release

Yeah, they'd be great on Powerr. AEW not so much since they value workrate more.

Their promos saying they were better than the LOD etc pissed off the old timers (i.e. JBL and his ilk)
