Sendai Girls (4.14.19) review

Sendai Girls   April 14 2019   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall. Sendai Girls tend not to name their shows so here we are. Let’s see what joys Meiko Satomura has for us. The main event here is Chihiro Hashimoto, who’s really strong, against Jordynne Grace. It’s a Hoss Fight in Tokyo!  … Continue Reading

Stardom Cinderella Tournament 2019 (4.29.19) review

Stardom Cinderella Tournament 2019   April 29 2019   We’re in Korakuen Hall, Tokyo. I am purely watching this because I saw a video of Toni Storm doing a Minoru Suzuki impression? Yes.

Stardom & Queen’s Quest Produce Golden Weeks Stars (5.4.19) review

Stardom & Queen’s Quest Produce Golden Weeks Stars   May 4 2019   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Shin-Kiba 1st Ring for an intriguing Stardom show where a returning Toni Storm challenges Momo Watanabe and Bea Priestley comes gunning for Kagetsu’s World of Stardom title that she’s held since June 2018.

Zero1 Jump Up Fly to the Future (4.16.19) review

Zero1 Jump Up Fly to the Future   April 16 2019   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Shin-kiba 1st Ring. Ikuto Hidaka is in the “studio” to provide expert analysis. Presumably this will involve eating seaweed and drinking beers. Unless he takes a different approach to company boss man Shinjiro Otani. The seat in the… Continue Reading

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors N1 (5.13.19) review

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 26 N1   May 13 2019   In the interests of full disclosure I have no intention of watching every single show of BOSJ as my time is somewhat limited. I’m specifically hitting this show because a) opening night of any tournament is usually good and b) there are… Continue Reading

AJPW Champion Carnival N18/Final (4.29.19) review

AJPW Champion Carnival Final   April 29 2019   I started watching this show on my laptop to test it out ahead of SSS16 weekend where it will be providing myself and Brother Mort with New Japan and Big Japan entertainment.

AJPW Champion Carnival N16/Block A Finals (4.25.19) review

AJPW Champion Carnival   April 25 2019   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall and we’re nearly done on this Champion Carnival tour. It’s taken me two days to get to this because of other commitments (and I went to see Avengers, sue me) but I’m here and excited. Today is the Block A… Continue Reading

AJPW Champion Carnival N15 (4.24.19) review

AJPW Champion Carnival N15   April 24 2019   We’re in Niigata, Aore Nagaoka. There’s a delay on the VOD for this one, which is a real pisser as there’s another show tomorrow and it’s the goddamn Block A finals. I don’t know the outcomes but I’m predicting Miyahara, Okabayashi, Lee and Doering all win.… Continue Reading

AJPW Champion Carnival N14 (4.23.19) review

AJPW Champion Carnival N14   April 23 2019   We’re in Sendai at one of the smaller venues of the tour with 320 in attendance. It’s not going to be one of the top nights of the tour if we’re all completely honest.   Standings:   BLOCK A Zeus [8] Shuji Ishikawa [7] Dylan James… Continue Reading
