    Yeah, that Suzuki match was really good. All the Okada matches have been. We've got the second Omega match coming up next weekend too^^.

    Ofc that's after my boy Ospreay wins his second BoSJ trophy.

    He pulled Fale into a 4 stars match...
    A rating most people would be thrilled with...
    And that is considered a lesser title defense during his run.
    :amazed:

    People thinks his reign is too long...
    But I love the storytelling so far.
    Right now...
    He just wants to show that he is indeed the true ace...
    And he will take on all-comers and styles to prove it.
    Eventually...
    That hubris will be his downfall...
    Which has been hinted at throughout his defenses...
    But until then...
    I hope he continues to rack up the wins...
    And in such spectacular fashion too...
    Because when he finally drops the title...
    It will make his opponent an instant superstar.

    I am quite excited to see KUSHIDA vs. Ospreay.
    KUSHIDA could really use a win...
    But I wonder if Gedo will pull the trigger...
    And let him challenge Takahashi so soon.

    I think Ospreay is winning.

    WCPW Fight Back is live. reasonable card. worth playing in the background since they are trying to get wrestling re-monitized

    KUSHIDA comes out on top.
    Gedo has been rather conservative lately...
    And he went with the homegrown talents once again.

    Yeah, sucks. But Kushida is awesome so I really can't complain about him winning. This years tournament was awesome all the way too. Especially the stacked group, don't think they ever had a less than good showing.


    And I did really like the sport with Scurll and Okada in the tag match, where he countered the Rainmaker with his umbrella. It was perfectly correct.

    I like KUSHIDA...
    But I am unsure of the timing.
    Is it really the best time for another bout with Hiromu Takahashi so soon?
    It may be better to let KUSHIDA be occupied elsewhere...
    Be credible again with a couple of wins...
    And then challenge Takahashi again.

    Still...
    Gedo has a great track record...
    He clearly knows how to book...
    And KUSHIDA vs. Takahashi will always be good...
    So I will continue to watch.

    WCPW just got banned from YouTube. The show "Fight Back" was removed and streaming privileges revoked due to "deceptive practices". The logo they used is basically the YouTube one.

    It doesn't matter what they are trying to do in a case like this. What matters is a random user could easily be confused.

    If I saw the WCPW logo I'd think it was some kind of YouTube related thing. And that's a problem. If WCPW then said something terrible on their stream, then the random user now thinks that YouTube are endorsing it. And that's a problem for YouTube, so YouTube are proactive about this kind of thing to protect themselves.


    This is very standard stuff. Don't appear to be pretending to be someone else, especially not your host and revenue stream. Intent doesn't matter.

    What was the point in engaging in any fashion with YouTube even if it wasn't serious or without their permission? WhatCulture as an entity was nothing without them. This was obviously a marketing angle but it got way too aggressive. They might disagree with the practice, but unspeakably stupid to bite the hand that feeds. Not to mention that to your audience and especially the talent may now have the impression that your promotion is bush league.

    Even if people were on their side and were still in the right, they look more stupid than YT does.

    GKJ your response is quite weird and reads like someone who doesnt know the full situation

    you say its stupid to bite the hand that feeds. they are in fact biting the hand that stops feeding. the demonitization of wrestling content has caused the shutdown of their free weekly show. they had a Mysterio match with over a million views that made $40. seems to me more like a protest against the cutting off of a serious revenue stream not just for WCPW but for any promotion big and small, hell even WWE

    also to suggest that audience and talent may look less upon them is bizarre, I cant see any fans or talent who think a source of revenue for pro wrestling being cut off is a good think. r/sc who is pretty mixed about WCPW is like 99.9% anti-youtube, pro-what they are trying to do. I dont think that makes them look more stupid than YT in any way personally.

    ill also let Adam's own words speak for him

    I'll take your word for it then.

    Much better than "Stand Up for WWE"

    Very late but I finally watched Okada-Omega from WrestleKingdom over the weekend and JFC it definitely lived up to the hype.

    I just started watching ROH and have been looking to watch NJPW, but the only NJPW I can find on TV seems to be older matches on the Fight Network. Any place I can watch the new stuff legally?

    There is NJPW World, which is their streaming service for ¥999. So just sign up for that and you'll have everything.

    All/most of the major shows have English commentary, if that's a thing for you. But the Japanese commentary is great so it's a non-issue really. They are probably my fav commentary team in all wrestling.



    There are also shows on the AXS TV channel, but I've no clue about it other than being a TV station. Those shows should be up to date with current in time for the american tour shows in July.
