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

THE STUFF IN THE TUBES:
>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.
>Shoot 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.

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 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

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 the death of Misawa 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 worki…

Men and women's promotions in Japan have a long history of being separate and there's been success like AJW in the 80s and 90s so it's not surprising that it's been unsuccessful no matter how much wrestling journalists not named Dave Meltzer say that NJPW should have a women's division because what works outside of Japan in the US, Mexico, UK, etc. doesn't work in Japan because there's not a long history of that there.

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 will also be posted in this thread should there be any.
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.

> COVID-19 and its effect on UFC and pro wrestling continued to dominate the news this past week. WWE is recovering from an outbreak that caused changes to the taping schedule, a number of rewrites to television and numerous big names taken off this past two weeks of television. For WWE, skeleton crews led to the lowest rated Smackdown of the FOX era and by far the lowest in 18-49 when it comes to overall realistic rating the show has ever done. Raw over the past two weeks has done two of its four lowest marks overall and in 18-49 in history.

> AEW, set a record low, but bounced back due to the heavily hyped Fyter Fest series of shows. Somehow, AEW has avoided, at least based on what has come out, any positive tests but did have a heavily hyped Jon Moxley vs. Brian Cage match moved back due to Moxley’s wife, Renee Young, being part of the WWE outbreak. But even with both companies presenting special shows, each declined in viewers and 18-49 this week when NXT in particular with the Keith Lee vs. Adam Cole double title match, should have hit a high point, and AEW with a loaded show, and a Chris Jericho vs. Orange Cassidy match built for weeks, should have been up as well.

> WWE has not said anything, either in memos to talent, or the media, about its outbreak. Based on different reports, anywhere from 30 or more individuals with the company have tested positive, although the only names released officially are Young, who did so on her own, Kayla Braxton, and producers James Gibson (Jamie Noble) and Adam Pearce. The list of talent that hasn’t been at the Performance Center since the outbreak includes Dana Brooke, Carmella, Naomi, The Street Profits, Velveteen Dream, Austin Theory, Daniel Bryan, Finn Balor, Liv Morgan, Mandy Rose, Natalya, Nia Jax, Otis, Tucker, Mojo Rawley, Shorty G, Raquel Gonzalez, Sheamus and Sonya Deville. Of those, Bryan and Sheamus both appeared on Zoom on Smackdown from home so it was clear they were scripted originally for the show and didn’t come. That could be by choice, given Bryan’s wife is pregnant and he’s had issues with his immune system, or other reasons. Dream and Theory were both named in recent allegations.

> WWE officially has said there is no change in Dream’s status, and he was in an auto accident but had been not been on the show while he was in the middle of a program with the Undisputed Era, and his name was never mentioned in commentary during a Dexter Lumis match where he was part of the storyline. WWE hasn’t responded to any questions on Theory, whose name has also not been mentioned on commentary or his absence when Seth Rollins and Murphy been on TV been acknowledged.

> Natalya is known to have not tested positive but was pulled for precautionary reasons. Brooke, Carmella and Naomi hadn’t been booked on television prior, so they all just simply may not have been used. Jax also doesn’t appear to have a program going right now, although was the one to “injure” Charlotte Flair so disappearing from television right after wouldn’t seem to make sense either.

> Ric Flair spoke to Wrestlinginc.com and explained his decision to continue working the tapings after the outbreak. “The WWE is doing everything and following every guideline possible,” Flair said. “The testing and all that was conducted as professionally as it could possibly be. Three doctors. Organized. Yes, people had to stand in line, but that was because of so many people being tested. But nobody was together. Everybody had a mask on. “I would scrutinize anybody that said otherwise at the highest level. I was tired of hearing the bullshit. (Mark) Carrano, Ace (John Laurinaitis), Vince himself, I could go down the list of people that are making sure that everybody’s life is at the best possible place while they’re there for the event.”

> Regarding the outbreak itself, noting he worked shows that several others backed off from working who were decades younger than him, and without his health history which includes blood clots in his legs and well as heart issues …

>PWInsider reports that the criminal trial of Luc C. Vu, who was arrested after the death of Matt ‘Travis’ Palacios, has been postponed to October 19. The trial was set to happen on July 20, but the New York Criminal Court has been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Vu was charged with reckless driving, failure to yield to a bicyclist, failure to obey a traffic device, driving left of pavement marking and failure to exercise due care in December 2019.

>Travis was riding a bike path in East Harlem around 2:30 AM on November 9, 2019, when he was hit by a dump truck driver. The driver made an illegal U-turn onto the Willis Avenue Bridge. While Travis was rushed to the hospital, the damage was too severe and he was pronounced dead on arrival. He was 25. It’s unknown if Vu knew he hit Travis or not. He was driving for D&A Contracting LLC in Parsipanny, NJ, which fired him when he was arrested.

Really sucks what happened with Matt Travis but I hope he gets justice.

More like had their balls cut off now that Marty Scurll got #SpeakingOut'd. They were making moves like planning to bring back the Pure Title, rebooting the women's division with a new title, that Past vs. Present show after 18th Anniversary, etc. They were supposed to do empty arena tapings this month but the recent COVID-19 spike postponed that.

>>6418896
Not to mention AAA did a four episode limited series a few months ago with Lucha Fighter but yeah AAA and CMLL have been uploading older shows to Youtube, which is pretty cool. Mas Lucha has also been uploading a lot of matches and streaming live shows from indie promotions on Youtube as well.

MLW and NWA are both on the same boat where they aren't running shows but they don't have the kind of money to keep their wrestlers paid. At least with MLW they have a lot of content as they've been running episodes of Anthology and now are rerunning episodes of Underground that will last them till next year though NWA is screwed because Dave Lagana stepped down and there's been no word of his replacement yet. Maybe David Marquez or perhaps bringing in someone like Chris DeJoseph.

Dragon Gate's running shows with fans again, with a 3-way generational war still going on, they're about to do their big 6-7 PPVs & Masato Yoshino is still set to retire later this year. Oh & Ben-K is a fucking tank now.
NJPW is EVIL
IMPACT is about to bring a lot of people in at Slammiversary
AEW is solid

They never "forced" any of the women in the late 90s early 2000s to do it either. Just that they happened to heavily feature those women more.

>Raw live on June 29 drew 17,000 viewers. That's down 44,400 on the prior week.
>NXT live returned to the top 15s with an audience of 10,800 after many weeks out of the charts.
>Some unlisted WWE Specials drew 87,500 and 90,600 viewers on Saturday July 4 - but these were listed as Premier League-related content so take those numbers with a pinch of salt.

>AEW Dynamite drew 92,000 viewers for the July 1 episode that aired on July 3 (Fyter Fest week one).
>That's down 11k on the prior week as AEW continues to be inconsistent - in the last month it's gone from 67k > 133k to 92k.
>That 11.30pm start time is really hurting them - especially when Fite's offering live viewing with no messing around for £4/month

>Digging into the Showcase/Fight Network ratings some more then...
>Impact from Wednesday night - 13,900
(that's not counting their airing on 5Star)
>The WrestleTalk Showcase/Podcast double header drew 9,600 viewers each
Given that #15 for BT Sport drew 10,200, there's a very real shot that NXT UK lost to WrestleTalk

Too bad the stream was set to another event from a few weeks ago, so this one didn't happen
Better luck next time

I know this ties in to the #SpeakingOut stuff but I thought this deserved it's own thread

https://www.pwinsider.com/ViewArticle.php?id=137427

>PWInsider.com has been told in the wake of allegations against CHIKARA and owner Mike Quackenbush, an announcement is forthcoming that the promotion is shutting down.

>We are told by multiple sources that Quackenbush will also announce he is resigning at the head trainer of the WrestleFactory in Philadelphia, PA.

>CHIKARA was founded by Quackenbush in 2002.

>This is a developing story and we will update shortly.

It's over, after 18 years, the company has been shut down. Everything is falling apart. Lets celebrate Chikara in this thread. What was your favorite Chikara match/moment?

I watched Quack's statement and putting aside how he comes off, which is pretty much how he usually does, I'm glad he took responsibility and I believe what he says. The part where he talked about how remorseful he was for not protecting Steve "The Turtle" Weiner after someone called him a retard was sad to see.

>Huh, was the guy that would avatarfag with creepy pictures of nickelodeon children on here also Smark Henry under an alt trip or was that just another pedo on here?

No that was Tom Hardly.

Will Extreme Rules be the jump the shark moment for cinematic wrestling?

I feel like Extreme Rules is gonna jump the shark big time on the whole cinematic wrestling thing. WWE has this tendency where if somethings successful they just keep doing it until its ran into a ground constantly trying to repeat that success. The cinematic matches at Mania were pretty good and everyone was talking about the boneyard match and I feel the ones after Mania just haven't even lived up to that one in fact they've been massive downfalls in quality. Money in the Bank was just silly and lazy and the NXT Takeover one wasn't good. I feel Extreme Rules is just gonna be the one that sends it over the edge into shittiness.

If the loser is sticking around, all they'd really have to do to keep kayfabe on TV is wear an eyepatch or a color contact to signify a glass eye or something. And even then, that can eventually be explained away by saying he finally got a glass eye that matches or he got an eye transplant.

Pic related, it's WWE writers.
