    Dave hinted on NXT Japan. He also said it will be misinterpreted and be a big story to Japanese wrestling fans, not American wrestling fans. If it was some sort of talent trade with WWE, I feel like that'd be big news to American fans. He also mentioned they've tried to buy Japanese companies.

    Can't see it being the Stardom story. I don't know anyone outside of geeks on Reddit or Twitter who feel like New Japan should have women's wrestling. Isn't it accepted that women are equals and they typically have their own companies?

    I've been out of the loop with New Japan since G1. Outside of KOPW and these road to shows it's been pretty quiet.

    It's really hit me this week though. Surreal feeling right now.

    Yeah f--- you for school and life. Rly tho

    Loved the show! Liger retirement was fun, undercard flowed well. Only bad match was the Nakanishi 6 man.

    GOD vs Finjuice - 3.5 (ended up being good)
    Archer/Moxley - 4.25
    Ospreay/Hiromu - 5
    Naito/Jay - 4.75
    Ibushi/Okada - 5

    Gonna be hard to top the matches tonight, but it should be even better top to bottom. We lucky af.

    Has anyone been keeping up with the New Japan Cup? I want to watch the tournament matches but my NJPW World subscription isn't active currently, and I'd rather just wait until the first of the month to activate it so I don't get charged for it twice in a matter of 10ish days

    @WrestlingBros the (indy) wrestling scene here in Bahrain is slowly growing and expanding. It is still in the progression and development stages, but things are moving smooth. We just had our third public show on Friday. This video is from the second public show which was last month. One of the wrestlers we have, the first actual Bahraini pro wrestler was trained by Jay Lethal in Florida few years ago.
