Ishikawa is the Union guy, btw, and so is Fukuda.

Re: Big Japan - The promotion of MEN

Kohei's truly awesome, he's been one of my silent favorites for a decade now. Probably the best brawler in Japan now that Takayama and Ikeda are basically semi-retired.

Nagata's already been in AJPW for an awesome run, he needs to do it again.

Kensuke vs. Yuji in a wild, minimalistic brawl masterpiece from Wrestling World 2004. One of my very favorite company matches ever.

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

- Meh, he's been pushed as a main eventer a couple of times and hasn't really been accepted as a world champion. Not saying I dislike Go but it's starting to get to that crunch time for him. He reminds me a bit of Japan's Orton in a lot of ways and that's not a good status to have. They really need...

Re: Does Ryusuke Taguchi have go away heat?

This current gimmick is arguably the best (or the most interesting at least) Taguchi edition in over a half a decade.

Re: Dylan's Southern Indie (or is it Indy, you decide) thread of doom (SCI, Empire, PWX, et.)

To answer Chismo, the best stuff I've seen from 2015 Southern indies that is on tape would be Rave v. Styles (on vimeo for rental or purchase, but well worth it in my view, and it was outstanding to watch live), Rave v. Adler 1/16, Rave v. Matthews from AWE on 1/29, Rave v. Matthews v. Fry Daddy fr...

Re: CZW thread - Layin' the Law, Once Again

Frankie Pickard's short 'n' sweet matches with Sykes and Glamrock need to be checked by people. Pickard impressed me in that glorious Gacy match so I decided to check him some more, I didn't regret it.

Re: Kota Ibushi - Geek or Legit Draw?

Yeah man, just look at DDT audiences, for example in Korakuen it's basically 80% women, both young and old(er). I really dig it. Long gone are the days of white shirt/black suit/black tie corp-worms occupying best seats of Budokan.

Re: Kota Ibushi - Geek or Legit Draw?

While he can be hit or miss, especially when his legs get worked, he's usually a top notch babyface who sells tremendously and creates such awesome drama with great facial expressions. His big spots are awesome, he moves and positions himself in a manner that makes him look very presentable. I under...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

To get this thread going a bit more: What type of program/angle does All Japan need to run in your opinion to drum up more business? Or anything else that they need to do to boost themselves a bit. - They need to find someone for Kento as a generation rival, that's why Sanada needs to be signed. - ...

I don't think anyone has contracts with ZERO1. I don't think ZERO1 can afford lawyers.
