King of Sports: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

NJPW came on last night and I got to see AJ Styles win the title. So much wrestling to watch right now between LU, AAA, CMLL, and now NJPW, if RAW were competing against any of these other shows on Monday I think I'd probably skip it.

pretty underwhelming show...that said only saw half via streams dying hxc all night

 

Will say while Main Event was not great, it had *censored*ing amazing finish (srs)

So I hear there's gonna be women wrestling in NJPW for the first time in 13 years, I believe?

 

 

"Bullet Babe" Amber O'Neal, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson are taking on Maria & The Kingdom.

Was expecting a big, fat, oily guy when I put his name on Google. I see he was once signed to WWE/FCW...is he that bad though?

oh god why

 

No, but seriously, has this NWA partnership brought one good thing besides something for Kojima and Tenzan to do and Bruce Tharpe? Everything NWA related I saw was mediocre at best. And that's being generous.

Can we just step back for a second and realize that Maria, the ditzy WWE interviewer, is the first female competitor in *censored*ing New Japan Pro Wrestling in over a decade?

KES were in NJPW waaaay before this whole "NWA partnership" began. They actually first teamed together in NJPW, so even if on-screen they represent NWA, they're more NJPW.

You gotta give her credit that she stay in wrestling after WWE. I believe Christy Hemme and Maria are the only ones from the 04 Diva Search that are still involve in wrestling.

I know. But they're constantly involved with the NWA and basically are the saving grace of the NWA Tag division

Yeah, but they were no contribution to NJPW by NWA, since they debuted in NJPW. If anything, they are yet another contribution NJPW did to NWA's dying and talentless brand, which I would argue offered next to nothing in return.

 

By the way, I wonder what NWA really gained, actually. It's not like they got much brand exposure or made some guys they can get behind for a rebuild to keep going on. I'm not saying it's completely fruitless and/or horrible, as I can see guys like Kojima, Tenzan, Liger and KES obviously adding something to NWA short term, but it has been kinda pointless and very mediocre. If NWA could have just found ONE younger guy that they could put against NJPW's top guys and not look like bush league, then they would have something close to a building block.

 

And NJPW probably could have used their veterans in another program. So for them, besides the weight that NWA's name still might hold in Japan, this stuff is borderline charity.

True.

 

I guess they got some more exposure and made people realize that they still exist.

 

And they got me to like Rob Conway. But that is a personal bias
