    9. World Tag League – Final:

    I'll throw in my predictions in a little bit.
     
  2. Isn't Archer doing fairly well in NJPW? Saw some of his work in FCW and he was one of those big guys who neither impressed nor killed my buzz so to speak. Entertaining to watch but nothing I jumped up for. Saw him in a big tag match at We are Pro wrestling love as well (My first foray into Puro.)
     
  3. Oh, yeah, he's been having a big upturn recently, capturing the IWGP Tag Team Championships 2 months ago with Davey Boy Smith Jr. He's a major part of the Suzukigun Stable, and a top gaijin(outside of Japan) talent in NJPW. I'd say he's probably in the top 3 in that catergory, behind MVP, Karl Anderson. He's MADE for the strong style, so his matches are quite good.

  4. Okay good for him.

    I'm more into Dragon Gate and I am looking to get a hold of some of their Japanese material. Mostly been able to find some matches on Youtube but I am looking for some full shows. I am a huge Dragon Gate USA fan so I kind of slid into the Japanese promotion as well. Big fan of guys like PAC, Brodie Lee, Ricochet, Gargano, Tosawa, Chima, Low Ki, Yoshino and the rest on the Dragon Gate roster. Ricochet had a hell of a year in Japan last year.
     
  5. I like DGUSA, but I still think NJPW is the #1 company in Japan, I mean, I love their main event right now. They have a lot of great talent there, and I'm hoping for an Okada/Nakamura showdown in the future, that would make a GREAT match.

    NJPW has full shows usually uploaded, especially now that they have UStream iPPVs.
     
  6. I'd get into NJPW if I had the time. At the moment I am doing master studies and I already follow WWE (RAW, Smackdown, Main Event & NXT), Impact and TNA Xplosion, DGUSA and Evolve and Ring of Honor. Maybe when I end up with a vacation or something I'll try get a hold of some NJPW.
     
  7. Yeah, I'd suggest to you Wrestle Kingdom first, whatever one's the most recent when you get to watch.
     
  8. I'll check it out once I get time. Which of the American feds is your favorite? By the fact that you love Daniels I'd wager TNA right now?
     
  9. Actually, I'm torn between the three major companies. I mean, they all have positives and negatives right now, I just like Daniels above any talent currently out there. Mainly because he's been consistantly awesome.
     
  10. Understandable. :Cornette: kinda chased me away from ROH but with him gone now it might step up again. My fav show to watch currently is NXT. Triple H was a genius when he revamped it and made it into their developmental territory. Best hour of wrestling currently on TV in my book.
     
  11. I'm a Karl Anderson mark, would love to see him get a World Title next year, defeating Okada.

    As far as Tag Team scene goes in NJPW, it's just awesome. I don't watch that much, ocassionally, but a lotta names get opportunities, and they really prove why they deserve it. Kudos to Archer and Smith for what.
     
  12. Yeah, Karl's doing great, I think he may get that title reign mid of 2013. He's looking like he's getting that push.

    Anyways, predictions.

  14. Looks like I was 4-4... with the 8-man tag not getting announced, XD.

    Damn... this is why I like NJPW, there's a lot of unpredictability
