    Yeah I don't understand why NJPW wouldn't work with AEW, especially when those guys are a huge reason that NJPW has become as popular as it is now

    This is a monumentally horrible decision. Apparently Wrestle Kingdom being four hours was also a directive from the new management.

    That old Dave quote about wrestlers there feeling very different on October 1st compared to September 1st feels very relevant today. I'm distraught lol, can't imagine how the guys there who've built this up feel.

    well the AEW announcement did temper a lot of the matches on the Wrestle Kingdom card, announcing just before was a d-ck move

    How? The same audience is paying attention. The matches didn't get the time they needed, end of story.

    Dave is now saying that NJPW is more open to working with AEW if it means keeping Kenny

    I think the rally went really well...Jericho & Pac are HUGE gets and Omega is basically confirmed too on the new BTE.

    Anyone else planning on going to Double or Nothing?!

    Man, I've been thinking about this a lot lately. The Bucks were getting over big in ROH, got bigger during the Hardy's matches, sustained that momentum for over a year, and even though they wanted to do it anyway that Cody tweet to Dave about selling out a 10k arena puts a lot of this in perspective

    Does Jericho go to New Japan without Omega/Okada taking over the wrestling world? How much of this would change if Adam Cole stayed in ROH? Maybe @Epitome can clear it up, but the Bucks weren't slotted in the main event spot until after he left, right?

    Omega/Okada, All In, and the birth of The Bucks are definitely the pivotal points in all this right now lol. Unbelievable how hard they worked for so long.

    Just realized man, if Bucks/Jericho turned down huge WWE offers that means this is real, real money and TV is guaranteed. Bucks signed for years! It's happening.

    Edit - apparently girls are getting equal pay? They going hard

    Aside from Omega losing (which was probably gonna happen anyway with Tana's movie and storyline) every other result was expected before January 1st. Cody was a guaranteed loss to Juice, Bucks were gonna lose in the tag, and Ospreay was going to beat Ibushi with his story.

    I heard Hangman dropped the pin on the pre-show? That would have been a sign, but nobody really expected that they all would be gone from New Japan.
