New Japan Pro Wrestling Thread

Post by Madzimum Thrill on Mon Jun 26, 2017 5:38 am

Kizuna Road Night 7 was earlier today. The only important match is the main event, a NEVER Openweight Title match between Minoruk Suzuki (c) vs Yoshi-Hashi. Suzuki won the title from Yoshi's CHAOS stablemate Hirooki Goto, and Suzuki/Suzuki-gun has been making life difficult for the CHAOS midcarders since then. This is a pretty natural matchup, Suzuki is a huge bully and Yoshi-Hashi is the little brother type guy of CHAOS. PM me and I'll set you up

Also news related to the upcoming G1 Special out of Long Beach, California involving Ring of Honor spoilers

Spoiler:

Cody Rhodes won the RoH World Title at Best in the World. The Okada vs Cody match is the first time the IWGP Heavyweight and RoH World Champions have faced each other. in a match, with Cody having the opportunity to become the first guy to both hold both titles in a career and hold both titles at the same time.

Ya know, I haven't actually decided if that would be rude or not yet. We're still doing the picks over there and I'm not sure if we should be splitting/if they'd even want to split like that.

>Kizuna Road N7
>Suzuki vs Yoshi-Hashi

Fuck, I love how much Suzuki can make things look like a brutal fight. Dude works holds and lays in strikes in a way that not many guys really do anymore

Kizuna Road Night 8

Similar set-up to the other two shows so far. Basically house show cards with a title main event. This one is Kushida defending the IWGP Junior Heavy against BUSHI. Nerd Note is that BUSHI is Kushida's original Jr Heavy rivals after he became the ace, who won the title off of him with heavy cheating, as opposed to Ospreay not being able to beat him even on his best day, and Hiromu basically throwing bombs at him and outclassing him until Dominion. Kushida's probably been Poison Misted more than anyone too. Should be a good match Very Happy

Sanada's been wrapping up Taguchi in the Paradise Lock every time LIJ and Taguchi Japan lock up, Taguchi finally turned the tables on him and.... fuck I lol'ed

At the last Kizuna Road show, Tanahashi pushed him out of the way as a "Let me show you how to do it, kid" way and started doing it and... realized he didn't know how to apply the Paradise Lock either

Garlic Fucking Junior

G1 Special Night 1 Spoiler

Spoiler:

Kenny came out with towel in hand during the Cody/Okada Title match and tried to make Brandy throw it in. Broooo, you called it, I thought that was a dramatic spot and thought nothing of it, but you were like "does Cody actually care about Kenny?" and now it started Cody/Kenny drama

205 Live is so garbage though. Too much product.

I just love that these two guys were going to be the Cruiserweight Classic finalists and one was going to be the winner (Ibushi was the obvious winner but ZSJ was probably the realistic winner because Ibushi doesn't like being tied down, man), but they were both like "Nah" and now they're in the fucking G1 instead of contemplating quitting 205 Live like Austin Aries

So night 2. I'm guessing Omega v Suzuki will be worth watching, but haven't heard anything about any of the matches?

Yeah, the only must-see is Omega/Suzuki... and even then... Mad

Night 2 G1 match thoughts

Spoiler:

- Juice v Kojima was good, and I loved that Juice won :')
- Elgin/Tonga was good as well, I really liked that they played up Tama's maneuverability vs Elgin's slow power
- Sanada won over EVIL, FUCK YEAH . I think Sanada is better than Evil and has potential to be at least an IC Champion (could even be a Wrestle Kingdom main eventer, but I'm not sure he has enough charisma for it) but because he's an outsider and Evil is homegrown, they've pushed Evil stronger since the formation of LIJ while Sanada earns his stripes and the trust of the office. Go to the G1 Finals, Sanada. Fuck'em all up
- Okada/Yano was Yano's best match since a G1 match against AJ a few years ago. It's still a comedy match, but the crowd got pretty into it
- Is it weird that I'm disappointed with Omega/Suzuki even though I thought it was a really good match? The story sort of went the opposite direction that I wanted it to. They played a nervous semi-babyface Omega overcoming bully Suzuki and Suzuki-gun cheating (I popped huge for the Bad Luck Fale babyface run-in), but I think their styles really didn't mesh too well (besides Kenny's knees). It was sort of more of a cartoon match and I was hoping for more of a Suzuki/AJ Styles ace-of-the-faction fight.

G1 Night 4

BAD LUCK FALE Evil or Very Mad

Spoiler:

Tama Tonga

Spoiler:

jumped Omega before their match started, got on the mic and started asking if he was the leader of the Bullet Club ("what the FUCK is the Elite?") and hit him with a Balor-style Pele Kick during their match.

More trouble in paradise for the Biz Cliz?

Elgin v Okada

Spoiler:

might be the second 5-star match of the tournament

I was dying for Elgin to win, thinking he'd be a badass title challenger for the interim between the end of the G1 and Wrestle Kingdom, but no dice

I am so into Tama Tonga now after I just dissed him a few days ago. Holy shit. I have been waiting patiently for the Elite vs Bullet Club feud. Fuck yeah.

I'd totally be cheering for the Bullet Club in that feud

Gimme GoD, Cody, Fale, that 7-Foot Meng-son who's young-boying, and maybe some Junior sadded vs Kenny, the Bucks, Scurll, Chase Owens and maybe a Heavyweight or two from somewhere

The Elite are just Kenny & The Bucks. Marty would maybe be their lackey but he'd likely just not be involved is how I see it.

Kenny wagging his finger "no" at the guy in the Rainmaker t-shirt begging for a 2 Sweet made me lol.

In case you don't know about it, this website - http://thelionmarks.com - translated a lot of promos etc into English.

There wouldn't be a lot of places The Elite could go without other members with just Kenny and junior tag team. GoD and the Bucks couldn't even feud over a title.

But the whole point of The Elite was Kenny wanting to focus on those three. It wouldn't make sense to become a stable.
