    The card game corporation Bushiroad bought NJPW. https://www.facebook.com/PuroresuSpirit

    You guys know more about Japanese wrestling than me, but this is a big deal right? What does this mean for the grand scheme of things?
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    It said it the end that it benefits the talents. Maybe we will see something new.

    The situation from NOAH was a shock to me.

    ANMU's GHC Jr tag title defense against Kotoge & Harada on the Great Voyage in Osaka show is one of the better matches of the year so far. All four men worked hard, and made it feel like the outsiders from Osaka Pro could actually pull off the upset.

    Been a pretty shitty year for wrestling matches on the whole so far though, innit?

    Shingo Takagi vs Katsuhiko Nakajima:

    Can't believe no-one hasn't posted up that Okada (yes, the Japanese guy that was running round with Samoa Joe) is now the IWGP Heavyweight Champion.

    I knew about it and I was surprised of the transition! Also Goto is IC champ!

    Saw that too... IC belt seems to be getting passed around a bit from NJPW standards.

    Just find it amazing (probably from a "WWE/TNA" standpoint) that he is the main man now in NJPW. Must get hold of that match against Tanahashi cause from what I saw of Okada in TNA he wasn't much, mid card at best.

    I saw the match and it was good, more or less. I haven't seen Okada's stuff in TNA but he seems to be doing well in gathering heat as The Rainmaker.
