King of Sports: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Discussion Thread

The Talk is Jericho episode with Jado and Gedo will be posted Friday.

I want to listen to this but man Jericho is annoying.

His plugs and intros are annoying but I like his actual interviews. I stopped listening to TIJ, for a while. Recently listened to a few episodes of it, on YouTube, where the intro was cut out. It was much easier to stomach because it took out the part where he's the most obnoxious

– It was announced at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show that New Japan Pro Wrestling has finally acquired the merchandise rights to wrestling legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger, who is expected to return to WWE NXT in the near future. Jushin Liger was originally a Japanese comic book character in the 1970’s and the creator, Go Nagai, owned the merchandise rights. After 25 years, NJPW has finally negotiated a deal where they now own the Liger character.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, here is the latest news on NJPW Wrestle Kingdom returning to US PPV. At this time, Jeff Jarrett has again shown interest in promoting the show on US PPV. Jarretts GFW promoted the show last year and did a very good job promoting the event, but talks have slowed on the New Japan side. New Japan reportedly wants to do more shows with Ring of Honor, and there has been interest from the Ring of Honor side to promote New Japan PPVs. ROH has a big advantage, as they have TV to hype the PPV events, and already have a deal with PPV providers to run live PPV events.

The Young Bucks recently applied for and were successfully granted a trademark for the phrase “Superkick Party.”

 

According to filings, the ‘word mark’ for Superkick Party was filed by Matthew Massie (Matt Jackson) for “goods and services including clothing, namely tops, bottoms, t-shirts and hats.” The trademark was registered last week; the Bucks have used the catchphrase for themselves for a few years now.

 

Reports had also surfaced earlier this year that noted WWE started allowing wrestlers to perform the superkick more frequently in matches. In addition, they named a WWE Fury video “Superkick Party” to take shots at the team, apparently stemming from the Bucks turning down a WWE tryout in 2014.

Yeah, it's a pretty lackluster addition. Thought it was the guy that was in The Naturals but it's not.

He has vacated the KO-D Tag Team championship he held in DDT and there is no timetable for his return.

 

The full card for Power Struggle on November 7th has been announced:

 

Jushin Thunder Liger & Tiger Mask IV & Mascara Dorada & Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Yohei Komatsu & Sho Tanaka & Jay White & David Finlay
