    --------------

    Initial thoughts, why is the 'newly made star' in one Dontaku show but not the other? right back down the card you go Zack.

    The 2nd night is much stronger than the 1st night of Dontaku. I know why they spread the shows out to get more ticket sales on the 'road to', but really feels like a waste to not have matches like Juice Vs Goto and Switchblade Vs Finlay main eventing nothing shows and then Dontaku N1 is THAT weak.

    Samoans getting involved in the Team Kenny Vs Team Cody feud now.

    Re: NJPW Wrestling Dontaku Tour

    That's the main problem with New Japan, there is rarely single feuds outside of the title matches. It does really hurt wrestlers momentum at times *cough* Juice *cough*.


    Night two of Wrestling Dontaku looks pretty interesting. KUSHIDA vs Ospreay should be good like their other matches. And the main event, Okada vs Tanahashi. Even if it's a bit predictable, I'm looking forward to the match.

    I mean, that kinda started with Owens getting dragged into things by Kenny and then GoD putting Cody in his place at the Long Beach show. I get the feeling from how things are playing out that Tama and his boys don't really give a fuck about the drama but they view Cody as more disruptive to the group dynamic so would rather align with Kenny than let the Bullet Club's fate be left out of their hands entirely. I've fantasy booked a version of the feud in my head that see's Kenny and Cody's shit come to an end and winner act like their victory gives them the leadership position in the Bullet Club only for the BCOG's to pull the rug from under them and reveal the new leader - whether it's Tama, a new signing or whoever, but no matter what it ends up being neither Kenny nor Cody.

    Looks like there's gonna be some good stuff on this tour but I'm glad that these seem like cards I'll be able to cherry pick matches from rather than having to watch the full cards for because it means I can fit more stuff outside of my regular three promotions into my watch schedule.

    Re: NJPW Wrestling Dontaku Tour

    There's a rumor going around that Kitamura has been retired by NJPW a-la Bryan Danielson due to his head injury. A lot of people are talking about it and it seems like the injury was more scary than we thought. Either way, it's bad news for him.

    That’s really unfortunate for not only a promising talent, but New Japan. He wasn’t great but he was exciting and could have been a big asset for the company. Meanwhile this is third notable forced retirement in the company for the last year and a half.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    At least they had a good plan B in mind for Kitamura

    Bone Soldier got a special video hyping his return. Brilliant.

    The gap in time between Nicky creating the worst wrestler in the world thread and the announcement that Bone Soldier is returning is hilarious.

    Friday The 13th Strikes again



    Also that main event was awesome. Some great development for Jay White and his position with CHAOS.
