Two out of the three major Japanese promotions are far from prime condition right now. All Japan is lacking a lot of guys since the Mutoh exodus and a real clear direction and Noah hasn't been the same since Misawa died and just like AJPW lack direction. Both these companies are falling behind while New Japan is pulling ahead and growing bigger whilst companies like Wrestle-1 are establishing themselves and smaller companies like Dragon Gate and DDT are taking ground as well. But something all these promotions need going forward is new stars, aces as they are called over there to carry the companies and draw crowds. This is particularly clear in NOAH and AJPW, who have a lot of older guys, but a lack of young guys to step up. NOAH has top guys like KENTA and Morishima but who has the potential to step up after them? All Japan is currently headlined by Akebono who ain't a spring rose himself, as far as younglings go they have Shiozaki I guess (31years) and the injured Soya (28) but do they have what it takes? New Japan has made Okada into a star and they seem damn focused on making Naito one as well.Dragon Gate's entire storyline right now is focused on young guys "taking over" with the Millenials and CIBA (some greenhorn impressed CIMA and was gifted with the gimmick of...mini CIMA) as well as young guys like Tozawa and Shingo. I'm not that into DDT to claim to know anything about that roster. And Wrestle-1 have Sanada who was All Japan's top prospect before the exodus. If you're a puro fan, who do you see the companies building around in the years coming? Who will become aces or otherwise top stars for their respective companies?
