Its not hard when you have sites like Wiki, Cagematch, Puro Spirit on Facebook etc etc. I don't how you guys would have survive watching Puro in the 80's and 90's in that tape trading era.

You sound very "these young brats these days don't know anything"-ish. People like to understand what they're hearing. Not a hard concept to grasp, and of course now that we got first tastes of NJPW with good English commentary, we want more. It's not like they're saying "SHOW SUX NO ENGLISH", they're just saying they would enjoy to have commentary in a language that's easier for them to understand, so they can have a fuller experience. And no one here, no one, is saying the only reason they don't watch is because commentary is in Japanese, and that they absolutely need it.

Well there are those people out there with the "Can't watch it because its not in English" mentally. I started watching in 2002/2003 so im that old (27).

Honma and Ishii had an awesome match today. I think it might be my persoanl MOTY so far. The emotion from the crowd was off the charts, the wrestling was hard hitting, great stuff.

Anyone else been watching the New Japan Cup 2015 these past few weeks?

 

Kota Ibushi ended up winning the entire thing earlier today.

 

Cody Hall, son of Scott Hall also had his first few matches in NJPW this past week during those shows. He's obviously very raw in the ring but he didn't do too bad.
