Good to see that Nagata is getting somewhat of a spotlight again as the next challenger for Nakamura, even if it's just a filler feud. Should be a good match at The New Beginning in Sendai.

I wish La Sombra stays a little longer this time. Maybe a G1 participation. I like what he brings to NJPW's heavyweight scene, and he has some star power too.

Has there been any news regarding TMDK in NJPW? Don't follow news closely but I'd love to see them do more with NJPW. They really impressed me at WK9 and I don't have much reason to watch NOAH.

Nagata was GHC Champ in NOAH he lost the belt over the summer to Marufuji.

Suzukigun invaded the NOAH show last weekend and attack Marufuji. TMDK try to make the save put KSE block them. Suzukigun are doing a bunch of NOAH shows this week.

Hope it leads to more in the long run. Those guys can go. I hope they get something similar to what Kota ibushi gets, or Omega before he signed a deal.

I believe KES tweeted saying they were facing TMDK for the GHC tag titles coming up, so it looks like the NOAH guys and the Suzukigun guys are going to feud big time. Super excited. I'm betting we see TMDK in the World Tag League next year from this lead up

From the first AXS TV show, I would say that Ranallo and Barnett will be very good representing the brand, and their style of commentary is exactly what I would like on a NJPW wrestling show.

I didn't even realize it was on yesterday and I have AXS TV. I only realized when I was on my site trying to finish catching up on LU and it had the weekly episodes of all things wrestling, so I saw the NJPW logo and I'm like I didn't know they ran weekly shows, let me watch. Then I realized it was the one from AXS TV and I'm like shit! How'd I foget. I'll finish it later though because I'm at work now. Love the fact that they have the English commentsry.

Ranallo is a fantastic commentator and has a vast knowledge about wrestling. I hope this deal with AXS eventually leads to him commentating NJPW PPVs. JR and Ranallo would be a fantastic team IMO.

I would actually prefer that Barnett and Ranallo commentate future NJPW PPVs for long term purposes. They are both way more knowledgeable than Ross, and I believe it would be good for them to estabilish a more distinguished voice for their product.

Maybe Barnett won't be as available from time to time since he's still an active fighter, but I think if they can pull it off, it would be for the best.

I do look forward to Marufuji/Suzuki very much. Is this one worth a shot? I mean, Kojima and Marufuji are both good, but both also have a rep for turning some uninspiring performances from time to time.

Watched NJPW on AXS TV. I liked what I saw and enjoyed the commentary. I hate the way they say Okada's name though.

So stoked NJPW is on TV in North America. Add that to the list of wrestling promotions I'm watching. I love it!

There's a dude that works in a local gaming store here, and he always wears an old CM Punk hoodie, but seen he was wearing a NJPW hoodie, with the Bullet Club T-Shirt. He's a pretty cool dude, had a conversation with him about Paul Heyman once.

Super Crazy, talking to +LuchaTV, talked about the recent changes in Japan with his home promotion of NOAH and CMLL’s ally NJPW. It’s been reported NJPW bought some percentage of NOAH – NJPW was looking to expand and NOAH was looking to continue to exist – and Super Crazy describes both promotions as one united company, with the politics and people in charge of NOAH very different from when he started. He said all the NOAH foreigners are being booked thru NJPW, and implied NJPW’s Jado was booking for NOAH now. Super Crazy said Jado likes him and he’s going back in March, but Crazy also talked about going to CMLL and many offers he’s gotten elsewhere (AAA, Lucha Underground, even bringing up WWE.) You can probably do CMLL and NOAH now, but Super Crazy didn’t appear to be looking for regular work elsewhere when he was a regular in NOAH.
