    Yeah tidbits about t-shirts don't really belong in the New Japan World thread so I've merged it out into a general discussion thread.

    Cool shirt but the stranger things logo seems a bit out of place with Jay White as a skull.

    excluding his omega/meltzer commentary, because im sure that's gained traction and you heard about it, he just absolutely sucks. He calls everyone kid, even badasses like War Machine who shouldn't have that label. In the first three matches he's said mark 2-3 times. He says stuff like "put over" and other insider shit just to appeal to the lowest common fan and to make himself sound like a vet and smart

    i liked the truth commission man you dont need to prove you're smart to us

    Don is marking out bro.

    That sounds bad. I’d rather take the commentary track I can’t understand over that

    Is he done with New Japan though now he’s in bed with TNA?

    He claims he'll be sticking with New Japan on air and TNA off air.

    Kevin Kelly and Don Callis make JR and Josh Barnett's work seem amazing by comparison. And needless to say, I'm not high on that duo. But I'm no good at Japanese or Spanish commentary. Never worked for me personally.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    I think Kevin Kelly and Don Callis are miles ahead of unenthusiastic/know nothing JR and Josh "I can catch wrestle real good" Barnett.

    Fwiw, I think Callis' smarky commentary sucks but most people who watch on NJPWWorld are likely going to be the internet hardcore smark type anyway. JR/Barnett works for the casual AXS viewer. But I do like Callis' positioning as an annoying heel commentator.


    Japanese commentary is always the way to go. They pretty much just call it like it's a sporting event.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    I agree Callis and Kevin Kelly >>> JR and Josh Barnett.


    When available use the Englsih commentary for the undercard, then switch the Japanese after intermission (if one) or the first big match. Viewer experience is much better that way.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    Can't agree. I'll take a lack of enthusiasm and JR being drunk over Callis being more obnoxious than Matt Striker at his worst.

    It's a rough foursome altogether though. They need Don West.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    That being said, for WK, if you listen to Japanese commentary, you're going to have to put up with the obviously out of place commentary from Hollywood JURINA. NA NI???????????????? SUGOIIIIII!!!!!

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    Didn't really notice her that much on commentary. Although, she let of a few loud moans on commentary that I was like WTF at.


    I think Kevin Kelly makes the duo fine to listen to though when Callis isn't full "look at how smart I am". They can be good at times and have nice chemistry, especially in Okada matches where Callis just hates on him and Kelly responses are kinda funny at times. Barnett can be fine and he buries the Bucks so you must love that.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    Barnett in the modern landscape isn't terrible and miles ahead of the others who are in fact very poor. The Japanese commentary when I could understand a little more are okay but I wouldn't say they don't have faults, especially Milano when he's on commentary who tries too hard to get himself over and Nogami is good but at times has a bit too much of Michael Cole in him where he relies on catchphrases a bit too much. Chono though is always the man when he guests on commentary for bigger shows, he's a great commentator. His presence just sitting at the desk is more than most of the wrestlers. There was a member of AKB48 who guested on commentary at WK9 and she wasn't "bad" but was a bit overwhelmed by all this and too shy. There was an emo band called Breakerz that guest commentated the main event and the lead singer was actually pretty damn good, must have been a legit fan. (The whole band did Tanahashi's pose with him on his entrance too)

    After you watch enough to know what's going on the commentary is ambience and a complete non-factor in terms of needing to know specifics. Even with their flaws, the Japanese guys add a ton more than the English broadcasters who are so bad they actively take away from matches to me and would rather watch it with no commentary at all than having them kiss Omega and every ROH goof's ass constantly.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    Kelly/Callis and JR/Barnett are just both bad teams. I can’t speak on the behalf of Barnett because the only show I’ve listened to him call was the USA Special and he was atrocious, but he also had to help out JR on numerous occasions so I can’t properly asses based on that. JR had a bad 2017.

    Kelly/Callis have chemistry together and Callis has moments of greatness but he can get Striker-y and gross. Kelly is not one of my favorites. Never sounds sincere to me and he can reach levels of annoyance not even the likes of Cole ever get. Kelly was worse than Callis with Omega. Kelly yelling about all of his haters going to hell bothered me more than the mark slips.

    I dare Kelly to tell me to go to hell because I don't like Omega to my face. I'll knock him on his ass faster than Nick Gage pisses liberals off on Twitter if he ever tried to talk that bullshit. Geek.
