According to the Wrestling Observer, NJPW had the chance to return to AXS TV for their new US television deal but turned it down due to them wanting their weekly show to be on a service or channel with a bigger reach.

Also the deal with AXS TV would have been exclusive while their current deal with Roku allows them the ability to have their weekly show air on multiple platforms.

The report noted that NJPW wants to be on a bigger network and their deal with Roku is not exclusive, so it gets the company in the US market while not locking them down the way they would be if they signed a deal with AXS TV.

NJPW aired on AXS TV from 2014 to 2019, exiting the channel when their TV deal expired after Impact owners Anthem Sports & Entertainment bought AXS. The company premiered on Roku last week, with new episodes airing Thursday at 5 PM.

Good for them. So far they only have wrestle kingdom 2020 matches on there. I wonder if whatever they're producing going forward is going to summarize the current storylines and feuds.

Great. How's out again.

No. Not really.

Soooooooo, another Jr. Heavyweight Tourney for the belt for Taiji Ishimori to win back?

Ishimori is somehow the most boring full time Jr which is weird because when you see him live he's like 4 feet tall but shredded. He's like that child bodybuilder except he's a grown man. Time for SHO or Despy to ascend the ranks, please. Probably will be stuck with ELP as the champ though until Hiromu comes back for the cardboard belt

Doesn't help that he's also lost a step in his ring skills ever since he suffered a serious injury a couple years ago.

According to Fightful and Fanbyte, Marty Scurll worked at NJPW's set of tapings last month for their weekly Strong series.

He did a storyline angle segment with Rocky Romero that hasn't aired yet.

The source told Pratt, "They weren’t trying to hide him. I thought we were going to be the company that wasn’t booking these guys to get some buzz. They’re going to get buzz alright, but probably not the kind they’re looking for. And it just reeks of letting things slide because these people are all friends or whatever. I really just think fans should know his involvement beforehand, so they can choose to tune in or not.”

The finish to the IWGP US title match between Moxley and KENTA was very interesting.

SPOILER: show
Moxley beat KENTA via the Death Rider and retained his title instead of dropping it as everyone had speculated would happen.


This week's Strong show was the best one so far in series history.

AEW & NJPW partnership got a lot more interesting after tonight's show.

Night 1 of Castle Attack was a nice show overall. Only matches really worth watching were the final two of Ishii vs. Jay White and Okada vs. EVIL. The rest were all right but nothing worth catching if you missed the show.

Ishii vs. White was simply amazing while Okada vs. EVIL was one of EVIL's better matches since he turned heel and split from LIJ.

Mox retaining the belt was predictable. He’s a much bigger star than KENTA. It’s why they put the belt on him in the first place.

at thinking Moxley retaining was predictable.

NJPW's been trying for months to get that US belt back in their hands for their Strong shows since its been severely hampering their plans for Strong during this coronavirus pandemic.

Them deciding to keep the belt on Moxley the first time he's able to wrestle on Strong means they have some bigger plans for this AEW-NJPW partnership than some originally speculated.

Iíve been calling it for fucking months. KENTA is a 40-something older Japanese dude who worked for NOAH and his best years are behind him. They werenít going to use the hottest non-WWE talent available to put over that guy when they could knight someone for their US expansion. If they wanted the belt off Mox, they could have just stripped him and had him come back when he was available. Use some common sense, dingus.

This is like when people were surprised Okada — you know, the biggest star in the promotion — beat Naito at WK in 2018. When you have a long reign like that, you don’t use that as a drawing point just to have it end at the first chance you get.

Gedo is not as stupid as people on the internet.

They've been building up KENTA for months to be the one to take the belt off of him. This was before any "forbidden door" got opened. Maybe watch the actual shows instead of commenting on stuff you don't know about since you made it clear before you don't watch NJPW and the tirade you had about losing all respect for them because they committed the sin of working with Impact.

NJPW doesn't really do belt stripping if the person is not injured. Moxley's first reign ending via a belt strip was only due to a very unforeseen circumstance at the time. They didn't want to do it again with him which was part of the reason why they suspended the 6 months defense rule for all their belts early into the coronavirus pandemic.

No, theyíve built up KENTA for months to be a heel that loses to Mox before he drops the belt to guy they really want to use. Thatís why KENTA lost. Itís not a grand shocker. I am evidently right because of what actually happened, not what a bunch of dweebs on the internet speculated would happen.

Donít give a shit what New Japan does or doesnít normally do. A typhoon is unforeseen circumstances yet coronavirus is something completely normal? Fuck off with that shit. If they wanted the US Title off Mox it would be off Mox. Stop being such a mark.

Lol, doesnít matter if I watch or not. I was right. You canít really discredit my opinion when itís the correct one.

The typhoon stuff was the reason NJPW gave since it happened too close to the date of their King of Pro Wrestling event and neither Moxley nor Zack Sabre Jr. were able to travel to Japan in time for the show because of travel issues with its aftermath.

Them stripping the belt was also due to them being unsure if Moxley would be able to compete at Wrestle Kingdom 14 or any events leading up to it due to his AEW commitments and didn't want to delay their WK plans for the US belt at the time.

The coornavirus stuff is different because NJPW announced early into it that no title stripping would be happening to any of their champs because of the pandemic. Plus they were not going to do back-to-back title stripping for Moxley since the last time they did it, it didn't really benefit Lance Archer nor Juice Robinson.

Lol, thatís completely tangential and inconsequential to what Iím saying. Iím not disputing that they stripped Mox because of the typhoon. But they didnít have to. Iím not saying they didnít say they werenít going to strip Mox this time. Iím saying they could have if they wanted to.

You literally complained about my post about the typhoon while also saying how you didn't give a shit about what NJPW does or doesn't do normally.

They already stripped the title off of Moxley before and it didn't work out that well for them so why would they do it again just to repeat a similar outcome. Unlike WWE, NJPW doesn't like to change their plans or match card announcements unless it is completely out of their hand and even then they usually wait till near the last moment to make any official announcement. Once they made that announcement of no title stripping because of the coronavirus, they were sticking to it.

Because it doesnít matter why they do or donít normally do. If they wanted the belt back for US defenses they could have just stripped him. Youíre not making any sense, lol. If they wanted the belt on KENTA, you just announce that Moxley is vacating the belt but reserves the right to challenge so KENTA is now champion. But they didnít want to do that so they didnít.

Theyíre not at the mercy of this thing like itís a shoot, lol. It doesnít matter if they like changing plans or not. You actually have to be a bit of a mark to think your line of reasoning makes any sense.

Moxley is US Champ because New Japan want him to be US Champ. Itís that simple.

IC title match result from Castle Attack Night 2
SPOILER: show
Ibushi defeated Naito.

El Desperado, who won the vacant IWGP Jr. title match earlier, challenged Ibushi for both of his belts. Ibushi accepted and wants it at NJPW's Anniversary show later this week.

NEVER Openweight title likely taking over as the new "IC" or #2 belt in the company since its prestige has been built up by a ton over the past year.

No other belt would really fit as a #2 title based on NJPW's current structure and way of doing things.

NJPW revealed the full field of competitors and bracket for this year's New Japan Cup.



Okada vs. Shingo and Ishii vs. SANADA should be fantastic but the right side of the bracket looks pretty weak compared to the left side.

Ibushi is somehow the biggest heel in New Japan now. If the NEVER belt is filling the #2 belt slot then that probably means it's not going to be the two guys beating the fuck out of each other chanpionship anymore. That's three titles destroyed in one fell swoop.

I dont know if I agree there, looks like Ospreay / Sabre, Ishii / Nagata & White / Tanahashi in round 2 which seems pretty stacked compared to the left side. YOSHI / Finlay has potential to be better than expected. Heel Cobb / Heel Evil, Suzuki / KENTA, Naito / Yano and whatever combination we end up with from Okada / Shingo / Taichi / Goto dont really live up to the sum of the parts imo. Poor Naito looks like hes going to have to face EVIL for the 1000th time even though he pleaded not to have New Japan put us through it ever again while feels to me that the winner of Okada / Shingo seems pretty much set to win the whole thing.

Whats going on with Makabe lately? He's at all the shows but he very rarely seems to work.

Was looking at it more in regards to the first round matchups and the left side having more guys I like. The right side does get more interesting once it reaches Round 2.

In regards to Makabe, I'd assume its related to the big filming project he took a break from wrestling for late last year. Japan did have some serious coronavirus pandemic issues late last year so that might have messed up the filming schedule he was on. Plus he did mention it would be a while before he'd return to the ring.

Assuming a recent report from Fanbyte is true, NJPW purposely leaked Marty Scurll's involvement at their past tapings of NJPW Strong solely to gauge the fan reaction and backlash it would generate.

Had it not been that bad, they likely would have kept using him while if it was very negative, they could act as if they had listen to their fans and scrub all the plans they had for him.

Quote:

Almost immediately, someone with experience working for New Japan leaked more details of the story to me, sharing that Scurll had been working on-screen at the tapings, and how disappointed they were with the company about this situation. Today, podcast The Super J-Cast shared through their Twitter account that “per sources, Marty Scurll will not be appearing on NJPW Strong or any other New Japan programs for the foreseeable future.” My source from the initial report expressed that they believe this and the Fightful story were intentional leaks by NJPW to gauge what the fan reaction would be if they used Scurll.

Assuming all these reports are true, NJPW deciding to work with Scurll, even temporarily, is the most wildly ill-advised decision of their international expansion yet. While not using what they filmed with him is the most effective thing they could do as damage control, it won’t repair the full extent of the PR damage. The Scurll situation should have never happened, and that it did should raise some red flags for NJPW about its long-term international viability.
Also according to Fightful, a lot of talent involved in the recent NJPW Strong tapings were not happy that Scurll was brought it nor told beforehand of NJPW's plans for him.

Current rumor coming out of Japan is that Antonio Inoki might have passed away recently.

https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...assed_away_on/

Edit: The Observer's Jim Valley debunked rumors of Inoki passing away a couple days ago but hasn't confirmed if that's also the case for last night.

Great-O-Khan beat Naito via Ref Stoppage (submission)


Despy vs. Ibushi was amazing.
SPOILER: show

Ibushi won after hitting back-to-back Kamigoyes. First one got kicked out because he hit it too weak but nailed Despy hard with the 2nd one.

Night 2 of New Japan Cup 2021 tournament was great.

Suzuki vs. Honma was like last year's Suzuki vs. Nagata in terms of two old guys just beating the crap out of each other.

Juice vs. KENTA was very good and one of KENTA's better singles matches since he showed up in NJPW.

Shingo vs. Okada was amazing and current front-runner for match of the tournament.
