King of Sports: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Discussion Thread

Theres no way theyd have Dain keep the OWA over Omega. No way. Omega might not be there but hes easily the bigger star and the moves innovator.

Actually, Dain has used it longer than Omega. Omega didn't start using the OWA until 2011, but yeah, Dain would have to change finishers if Omega ever goes to WWE.

Huh. I was sure Omega was the innovator, though I suppose its possible they both came up with it without realizing the other had.

 

Still, with all respect to Dain, Omega is by far the one to get the move over and the one most associated with it. There's no way they'd keep it with Dain over Omega.

 

Hell even if they did, Omega has enough of a repetoir to not be an issue. Croyts Wrath, Aoi Shoudou, or he could elevate V-Trigger to finisher status.

Yeah, Dain used it on the indies way before Kenny did. Kenny used a modified version of the Aoi Shoudou. It was like a Cross-Legged Michinoku Driver (Which ironically was part of the 2k18 New Moves Pack). Then, he switched to the OWA in 2011. I agree that with you that Kenny will have the OWA if he ever goes to WWE.

Can't say I blame Naito. Look how Balor, Anderson and Gallows have been reduced too. The only reason WWE would want Naito is to eliminate a threat to them.

Or because some people on their roster think and know he's awesome

True, but honestly, WWE has done this before: Sign someone away from whatever company to eliminate a threat.

 

Good on Naito to stay loyal to NJPW

Yes, Naito has had a rough year following his WK12 loss, but it is becoming somewhat clear that Naito is filling the Nakamura role in the main event scene. He will probably elevate the Intercontinental championship time and time again. This is, in itself, cruel irony seeing that this is the championship that took away his main event spot at WK8.

 

And now it might very well end up defining him... Or he defines it.

Anyone thinks it's funny that Naito hated the IC-title and what it stood for and now he's basically the IC-guy who is popular but is not going to be the world champ?

 

Or is that just me who thinks that's a thing?

I'm really not a fan of this Naito/Jericho match and I don't really want to see either be IC champ at this point. It'd be cool to see Jericho retain and face other guys. but then I remember he'd only wrestle two more times max this year (and one of those times will be against Naito).

Kinda feel like if Omega wasn't a thing Naito would be a more massive player
