King of Sports: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

NJPW star Kenny Omega put on one hell of show at Sunday's NJPW Dominion but he also made history when he became the 13th man to ever headline shows at Tokyo Dome, Nippon Budokan, Sumo Hall, and Osaka-jo Hall (four of Japan's biggest wrestling venues), and the first to accomplish the feat in 15 years!

That video was awesome. As underwhelming as Cody's been in the ring his mic skills are undeniable. And Kenny's are completely off the charts.

 

Speaking of, did anyone watch the free interviews on NJPW World with Kenny, Okada, Naito and Tanahashi? The Kenny one was awesome, I only watched his and Naito's in full and then like half of Okada's.

Tana could get a solid match out of Gunn, but if they're planning to make a big first impression amongst the US Market I don't think that's the main event which'll reel in new subscribers (provided the IC Title headlines one night).

 

Same goes for Okada/Cody, though to a lesser extent seeing as Cody isn't 53.

Thats the third ever 6 star match in history right? Feels awesome that my favourite wrestler holds 2 of those three. I desperately want them to put the belt on Omega after a third match, he practically turned face just from his performance alone, with Kazuchika selling the entire thing so beautifully.

Big Dick Dave going wild, I love it.

Maybe, I think he said some of the Flair/Steamboat matches were like from 5 1/2 to 6 stars.

So what's everyone's thoughts on Dominion? I thought it was better than Wrestle Kingdom. I thought Bucks vs RPG Vice, Takahashi vs KUSHIDA and Omega vs Okada were all better than the Dome matches. Tanashi vs Naito I thought wasn't as good but was still great and Suzuki vs Goto was worse than Goto/Shibata.

Lmao yeah. I already had the 1st BC shirt (and they didn't have a medium for Kenny's) so I got Cody's

Also, I have a question, are the G1 US Specials not airing on NJPW World here in the US? I just keep hearing how it's gonna air here on AXS TV.

I know the first special airs live on AXS TV and the other one on tape delay, so I would guess that at least the second one would air live on NJPW World in the states.

Is hot topic an American store or are they elsewhere around the world? I don't think I've seen one in the UK.

All over the place in America, no sure about outside the states.

Never really considered the answer to this question. But, I checked the website, and I think it's a US/Canadian store. The drop-down menu for finding a location only has US and Canadian listings.
