Ricochet is here!

But not to wrestle. The One and Only enters the ring to speak to the NXT Universe. “Now every place I have been around the world”, Ricochet made sure they remembered him. He knows everyone was talking about him after Wrestlemania and TakeOver: New Orleans. NXT is about taking over, and Ricochet intends to take over the brand that redefines sports entertainment. Maybe he’s confident, maybe he’s cocky, but each time he’s in the ring, Ricochet proves he’s the One and Only. And the one and only thing on his mind: no, not socks, it’s the NXT Championship. But the Velveteen Dream appears first.

The Patrick Clark Experience returns to NXT TV and the fans welcome him with an ovation. “No, no, no,” Dream says. Dream doesn’t understand who is giving Ricochet this authority to be in the ring. What gives Ricochet the right to ask for a title opportunity? Taking over? How about taking a step back? Dream wants to set this straight: The One and Only? Fans duel, “One and Only!” “Velveteen!” Ricochet “makes this look good.” Yes, he does make “this” look good. But Dream must tell Ricochet that there is one and only man, there is one and only Experience. “And guess what? You’re looking at him.” Ricochet can jump around all he wants, but no matter how he flips–or flops–make sure you land at the back of the line, behind Dream.

Behind Dream? Dream thinks he deserves a shot? Ricochet knows he’s the new kid, but he knows all about the Velveteen Dream. He got the NXT Universe to say his name. He even got Aleister Black to say it. Though Dream might not remember that since it was after getting his head kicked off. Don’t get cute, because if you keep running your mouth, #DreamOver will be your reality. Ricochet won’t run his mouth, he’ll just run circles around Dream. Dream is good, but he ain’t Ricochet. Ricochet knows Dream acts like this is his show, but enjoy that while it lasts because Ricochet is going to steal the show. Steal Dream’s show? Steal Dream’s spotlight? “YES! YES!”

The NXT Universe believes in Ricochet, fine, but Dream says he can try. “Understand this: anything that you can do, The Dream can do better.” Ricochet dares Dream to prove. The mics drop, and the fans chant for a fight. Dream takes off his jewelry, and tries to sucker punch Ricochet, but Ricochet is ready with a step. Ricochet winks and Dream slithers away. When will this #OneAndOnlyExperience happen?


EC3 VS Raul Mendoza!

The man known as Ethan Carter III makes his singles debut on NXT TV, while the Cruiserweight Classic competitor wants to finally have that break-out moment. Will Raul ruin EC3’s moment by making one of his own?

Fans already chant for EC3 at the bell. EC3 and Mendoza tie up, Mendoza getting a waistlock then headlock. Mendoza slips out of the back suplex then runs to headscissor EC3 down. EC3 powers Mendoza to a corner, rams in shoulders then whips him corner to corner. Mendoza gets out to the apron and forearms EC3 back, then springboards for a missile dropkick. Cover. ONE, but Mendoza keeps on EC3. EC3 reverses the whip into a facelock STO. EC3 puts Mendoza back in a corner for a mudhole stomp, then backs off at the referee’s count. He returns to club Mendoza in the chest, then whips him to the ropes. EC3 flips Mendoza over with a clubbing clothesline, then stalks him to a corner. He brings Mendoza up, whips him out then in, and gives another clubbing clothesline.

EC3 snapmares Mendoza then gives the neck snap, and fans cheer. He drags Mendoza up but Mendoza jawbreakers back. Mendoza throws hands, but EC3 shoves him, only for Mendoza to forearm and enziguri on the rebound. Mendoza fires up, but runs into an alley-oop snake eyes! EC3 gives Mendoza a strong knee lift, then fireman’s carry to the TKO!

EC3 covers, EC3 wins!

Winner: EC3, by pinfall

The Top 1% is on top tonight with his first 1v1 win. Will he continue climbing up until he is truly the top 1% of #NX3?

On-stage interview with EC3.

After falling short of the North American Championship in TakeOver’s ladder match, how important was it for him to win tonight? Losing at TakeOver? So what?! Adversity makes a man, and he IS a man. EC3 has the mind of a genius, the body of a deity, and has precision skill in the ring. “The only thing you’ll see out of me going forward is victory after victory after victory”, repeat, to make NXT become NX3. Fans chant along, “NX3! NX3!” He is the best here, there and anywhere, he is THE EC3.


NXT shares exclusive backstage footage from last week.

Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan encounter Pete Dunne after all three men fought off The Undisputed Era. The brawlers make it clear that they were only fighting Roderick Strong, Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly because of their own vendetta. It wasn’t to help the Bruiserweight, because honestly, they really, really don’t like him. But the three can agree the common enemy is the Undisputed Era. Three on three, what does Dunne say? Dunne nods “Yes”, which is good enough for them. Will the Bruiserweight and the brawlers work well together against the united Undisputed Era?


Dakota Kai VS Vanessa Borne!

Captain Kick took offense to the vivacious Vanessa insinuating the Queen of Spades traumatized her. Whether she’s afraid of Shayna Baszler or not, Dakota defends she isn’t afraid of Vanessa. Will the kicking Kiwi give Vanessa a reason to fear her?

The bell rings and fans are on Dakota’s side. She and Vanessa tie up, Vanessa gets the headlock but Dakota powers out. Dakota follows Vanessa and dropkicks her down, then already runs around the world, only to miss her corner kick. Vanessa headbutts Dakota down, then climbs up to give Dakota a facebsuter. Cover, TWO, but Vanessa keeps on Dakota with stomps and ax handles. She demands the fans cheer, but the fans only boo. She kicks Dakota low, to take her on a Moonlight Drive!

Cover, TWO, and Vanessa is already frustrated. She goes after Dakota’s arms in a half-surfboard, but the fans rally for Dakota. Dakota fights her way up but Vanessa just drags her back down. The fans keep rallying, and Dakota stands up again. Dakota arm-drags Vanessa off, then ducks to roundhouse! Another roundhouse, then a scorpion kick puts Vanessa in the corner. Dakota fires up then runs around the world, for the Kiwi Kick!

Vanessa sits down, Dakota adds a running knee! Fans fire up, and Vanessa staggers. Dakota runs and gives Vanessa a sunset backstabber!

Cover, Dakota wins!

Winner: Dakota, by pinfall

Captain Kick conquers Vanessa, but her fears come back to haunt her! Shayna Baszler appears!

The mere presence of the NXT Women’s Champion makes Dakota tremble in the ring. Shayna smirks as she walks down the ramp and joins both Dakota and Vanessa in the ring. Dakota cowers in a corner as Shayna draws near. Shayna doesn’t bother bullying her, she goes after Vanessa!

Vanessa is in the Kirafuda Klutch, and taps out to no avail. Dakota is too afraid, she slips away instead of helping Vanessa. Shayna just glares at the cowering Kiwi while she chokes Vanessa out. Will there be anywhere for Dakota to run and hide from Shayna’s #ReignofTerror?


Backstage interview with Dakota Kai.

The fleeing winner is congratulated but clearly she’s shaken by Shayna’s appearance. Why does Shayna have such power over her? Dakota can’t explain it herself. Shayna goes after Vanessa, and Dakota just froze. Oh no, Shayna walks backstage now!

NXT Women's Champion "Bully Baszler" intimidating Dakota

“C’mon, do something!” Shayna eggs Dakota on, but Dakota can only tremble. “That’s what I thought.” Shayna leaves, and leaves Dakota feeling afraid and ashamed. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Crazy Nikki Cross is laughing from the shadows!

The loony lass laughs and laughs, will she be laughing all the way to a title shot against Shayna?


War Raiders VS Heavy Machinery!

Ray Rowe & “War Beard” Hanson made their NXT debut by wrecking Tucker Knight, Otis Dozovic, Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss all at once. Sabbatelli and Moss broke up as a team but Tucky & Dozer are still together and looking for payback. Which duo will destroy the other in this truly colossal collision?

Rowe and Otis start with the bell, and Rowe dares “Doze” to do something. Otis gives a forearm, so Rowe gives back one. They brawl, and then Tucker and Hanson jump in! It’s a full on fight between all four men. Heavy Machinery turn the tides, then whips War Raiders at each other, but Hanson reverses and Rowe rucks Tucker with a forearm. Hanson goes at Otis and they collide with bodies, but Rowe’s shotgun knees send Otis into the corner. Rowe tags Hanson in, and Rowe whips Hanson in for the splash. Hanson then becomes a human weapon as Rowe lifts him, for a spinebuster senton! War Raiders fire up as Hanson tags Rowe back in. Rowe feeds Otis to Hanson’s knee, then Hanson feeds Otis to Rowe’s roundhouse.

Otis staggers to a corner while Rowe tags Hanson back in. Hanson whips Otis but Otis reverses into an overhead suplex! Fans rally while Hanson and Otis are down. Hot tags to Rowe and Tucker, but it’s Tucker who rallies with right hands. Yet Rowe stays standing! Until Tucker dropkicks and hip tosses him! Tucker fires up but Hanson comes in, to DIVE on Dozer!

Tucker goes after Rowe but Rowe fights back, Ace Ten Mao! Rowe tags to Hanson, and they pick up Tucker, for FALLOUT!

Hanson covers, War Raiders win!

Winners: War Raiders (Hanson & Rowe), Hanson pinning

War has come to NXT, and the Raiders are on a roll! After taking down one of the literally biggest teams in the division, is it only a matter of time before Hanson & Rowe wage war on the NXT Tag Team Champions?


The Street Profits get some exercise.

They work out the old school way, and are still coming for those NXT Tag Team Championships by any means necessary. They won’t let TM61’s cheating win slow them down. Can Dawkins & Ford pick up where they left off and go after the titles?


Kassius Ohno VS Tommaso Ciampa!

The Psycho Killer has no remorse over the betrayal and the beatings he’s given Johnny Gargano. He doesn’t even care that he almost ended Gargano’s career. But the Knockout Artist vows to make him care, even if he has to beat it into him. Will Ohno KO Ciampa? Or will he suffer a similar fate to Johnny Wrestling?

The referee has to keep Ohno back as he enters the ring. Ohno waits for the bell, then goes right at Ciampa. They tie up, and Ohno backs Ciampa into the corner. Ohno honors the break, and sees Ciampa’s sucker punch coming. Ohno uppercuts Ciampa out of the ring, then follows to elbow and boot Ciampa against barriers. He keeps on Ciampa with more elbows, then puts him in the ring. Ciampa slips back out, but Ohno wrecks him with the wrecking ball dropkick! Ohno has Ciampa on the ramp, and rocks him with a right hand. Ciampa slips back into the ring but Ohno follows. Ciampa kicks and punches back, then bumps Ohno off buckles. He stomps and whips but Ohno reverses, then suplexes Ciampa up on the rebound. Ciampa hits the mat hard, then Ohno adds a big back senton!

Ciampa goes to the apron but Ohno follows again, only for Ciampa to sweep the the legs! Ohno hits the mat and apron, and Ciampa adds a running knee! That knee brace is an added factor to the impact, and Ohno reels to other ropes. Ciampa stomps away on Ohno, and only stops because his rage boils over. Ciampa checks his black eye, then taunts Ohno while stomping on his ankles. He digs his fingers into Ohno’s face, then stomps more. Ohno staggers, but Ciampa rocks him with a shotgun dropkick. The Psycho Killer tells Ohno that Gargano is not worth wasting emotions on, then digs his fingers back into Ohno’s face. He lets go at the referee’s count, but then wraps on a chinlock. Ciampa squeezes, but Ohno rolls, only for Ciampa to roll through.

Fans rally for Ohno while he endures, but Ciampa adds torque to the hold. Ohno feeds off the fans’ energy, and stands up. Ciampa shifts to a cravat and drives in knees again and again. Ciampa chops Ohno, then chops again, but Ohno blocks the third to give a swift right jab! Ohno runs in for a bicycle boot, then a forearm, then another boot. He grinds his boot into Ciampa, and the fans fire up. Ohno whips Ciampa corner to corner but Ciampa revesres again, only for Ohno to boot Ciampa down! Ohno stands on Ciampa’s face, giving him a taste of his own medicine. He sits Ciampa up to trap an arm and grind his elbow into Ciampa’s bad eye. Ohno drops a knee on the eye, and Ciampa screams in pain.

Ohno stands on Ciampa again, then brings down the knee pad. He drops the exposed knee on Ciampa’s bad eye! Ciampa gets to a corner, and boots back, but Ohno rocks him with a right! Ohno grabs Ciampa with a cravat, and asks if Ciampa can see him with only one eye. Ohno then yanks Ciampa off the top rope for a floating cravat!

Ciampa flails, holding on with a body scissors, but then Ohno sits out for a cravat bomb! Cover, TWO, and Ohno is shocked. Ciampa rolls away while Ohno stands up. Ohno glares down at Ciampa, and asks “Is it worth it?!” before booting Ciampa in the face. Fans are chanting for Ohno as he boots Ciampa again. Ciampa rolls behind the referee, then gets a sucker punch. Ciampa clubs away on Ohno with lefts and rights, then undoes his wrist tape. The referee knows he’s going to choke Ohno with that, so he confiscates it. But that only allows Ciampa to dig his fingers right into Ohno’s eye!! Ohno rolls to the ropes, but Ciampa is on him with forearms and haymakers. Ciampa runs, but Ohno boots him! Ohno runs, but Ciampa dodges the High Tension elbow! Ciampa takes aim, and hits the Psycho Wizard knee!

Cover, TWO!! Ciampa is shocked, but the fans are cheering. Ohno survives, and the fans rally for him, but Ciampa grinds his foot into Ohno’s chin. Ohno fires up and stands up, to knee Ciampa back. Ciampa boots back, then spins, but Ohno counters elbow with elbow! Then he elbows Ciampa’s face, and spins, only for Ciampa to clobber him with a clothesline! Ciampa brings Ohno up and turns him around for a swinging facebuster. Cover, Ciampa wins!

Winner: Ciampa, by pinfall

The Blackheart beats Ohno, and embraces every bit of heat the fans throw at him. They chant “You Suck! You Suck!” but that doesn’t change that Ciampa won. And that doesn’t change Ciampa’s ways, as he takes off that knee brace and targets Ohno. Ciampa cracks Ohno in the back with the brace, then reaches around the ropes to place the brace on Ohno’s face!

Ciampa pulls back on Ohno, a flashback to what Gargano did to Ciampa in their Unsanctioned match at TakeOver! He finally lets go and Ohno slumps to the apron. Ciampa shouts “Was it worth it” to fight on Gargano’s behalf?! He shouts that he broke Gargano’s body, broke Candice’s heart, and killed the fairy tale. Fans boo and jeer, but Ciampa’s job here is done. He takes his leave, and basks in the hate. Will Ciampa soon bask in the light of an NXT Championship match?



My Thoughts:

Another solid NXT tonight. Great to see Ricochet, and he has a pretty good back and forth with Velveteen Dream to set up this dream 1v1 program. They are going to put on an amazing match, and it could easily be an NXT Championship #1 Contender’s match. EC3 and Mendoza have a good match, but between EC3 being the new big star and Mendoza having jobbed before, naturally EC3 wins. He himself could easily find himself competing for the North American Championship again while Adam Cole and the Undisputed Era are busy worrying about Pete Dunne. And as I guessed, there will be a Six Man Tag of Dunne, Lorcan & Burch against Undisputed Era, to possibly set up for a bigger Six Man with British Strong Style officially uniting in WWE.

Dakota does great in both her match with Vanessa, and in continuing her frightened victim act. Shayna keeps egging her own, so it’s only a matter of time before Dakota snaps. In the meantime, it looks like Nikki Cross is ready for another go at the title. Hopefully it is soon so that she can get it out of the way and join the rest of SAnitY on SmackDown. Rowe & Hanson kinda give Heavy Machinery a taste of their own squash medicine, but it was damn fun to see it. Ciampa VS Ohno was a great match, really physical like we know they’re both capable of. Ciampa having no music is GENIUS, and he is primed for an NXT Championship match as the Heel to Aleister Black’s Face, and that will be even more intense.

My Score: 8.5/10

NOAH finished up their mammoth five day in a row event (14th September to the 18th September), fortunately no-one was injured, but both Hajime Ohara (neck) and Hi69 (knee) seem to be carrying injuries.

After losing the GHC Heavyweight Tag Title challenge against Naomichi Marufuji and Akitoshi Saito, Kaito Kiyomiya intimated that he would be interested in challenging for them again, but with another partner (i.e. Go Shiozaki). Shiozaki was seen watching Kaito Kiyomiya in the tag match against 50 Funky Powers in Hakata Stalene. Later in the tour he mentioned on Twitter about “shutting them up” and their GHC Heavyweight Tag Challenge

.Speaking of Go Shiozaki there was a very sweet moment that took place in Hakata, involving both himself and Atsushi Kotoge. When they made their entrance in their match against The Hooligans (Cody Hall and Maybach Taniguchi), a little boy could be seen dressed in a homemade “Revolutionary Cloak”. When Kotoge appeared the little boy and the little girl next to him (most probably his sister), did the revolutionary fist pumps (to the delight of Kotoge who joined in), and when he had gone, Shiozaki noticed, did it for half a second, and then went bright red (Shiozaki gets very shy when he has to do physical comedy, he also has a tendency to start giggling as well when others do it).
During the match, the brawl went into the crowd, and a little girl was upset by it and started crying. Go Shiozaki, gave her a hug to comfort her, and once back in the ring got The Hooligans in the corner, pointed to her and said “this is for you”, and proceeded to chop them.

Despite his claim to “bring the revolution to Hakata, and defeat the villains!”, Atsushi Kotoge took the Zwei Bomb from Taniguchi.

Naomichi Marufuji is still not accepting the challenge of The Hooligans, and gave a somewhat bad tempered promo in Ehime saying they were “a fool, a baldie” and “even though I am an asshole with a lack of sleep, I am going to crush you all. Come and line up with your heads bowed. I am not going to accept your challenge! I’m not in the mood!” Marufuji is still being obsessively hated by Kenoh, and he certainly has taken it from him on this tour, but the person the five days really belongs to, is Katsuhiko Nakajima, who utterly obliterated Takashi Sugiura and did the cocky pin on him. I don’t think anyone has ever at any time or anywhere ever done this…

Nakajima, being Nakajima, wasn’t finished there as he draped the belt over him, and then threw Sugiura out of the ring. When Sugiura had recovered and scraped himself off of the floor, Nakajima had gotten the microphone, and standing on the turnbuckle he told him that he would continue to plague him like he did today, he would plague him again tomorrow and the day after that and forever afterwards.

At the end of the five day tour, having been thoroughly battered by Nakajima, Takashi Sugiura said tiredly he couldn’t keep up and says that he has had no choice but to get better, and rethink his strategy. I can only imagine that Sugiura is playing the spider and the fly…

“Black or white, this is a league.” (Hi69) 

The NOAH Juniors, despite being divided over Junior Global League, are all gunning for Kotaro Suzuki (Hitoshi Kumano says that he is going to “crush the beat so no sound comes out”). Kotaro Suzuki has dismissed even the freelancers amongst the NOAH Juniors as being “weak”.

The biggest build so far is Daisuke Harada vs Kotaro Suzuki, which will take place in Yokohama (Suzuki has already lost to the other “elder” of the Juniors, Hajime Ohara). Daisuke Harada in Kochi, delivered the message to Suzuki that he would beat him down, and then he would “tell you this”…Harada spoke silently to the camera and walked off. Kotaro Suzuki later said that he had no idea what he was saying, but would find out before they faced each other.

Suzuki has made unflattering comments about various NOAH juniors, Hitsohi Kumano is “heavy” and “bulging with fat”, and Tadasuke, due to “too much hair treatment” is “greasy”.

Kotaro Suzuki, known for being just as “slippery” as Tadasuke (maybe even more) has promised something special for his “vision of Korakuen” (he also posted a picture of himself and Yoshinari Ogawa out drinking and said they were “discussing strategy”), well, whatever he has planned, it is probably a lot better than what Tadasuke has promised, he says that he may have to “poison the rice of the winning candidates” if he doesn’t win.

Suzuki and Harada clashed in a tag match on the 18th September on the last day of tour with Harada getting in his face with the belt, and Suzuki playing the innocent after attacking him while standing on the ring apron.

There has been no rift between The Backbreakers, with Hitoshi Kumano defeating Hajime Ohara. Kumano said he had to win, even though Ohara’s neck was very bad.
Part of his reasons for wanting to beat Ohara was due to the comments made by Daisuke Harada when he was aiming for the GHC Junior Heavyweight championship a few months ago, Harada had basically said that Kumano was “below Ohara” or that he was his “subordinate”.

Between RATELS, Daisuke Harada is too busy to comment on Tadasuke beating him, and YO-HEY and HAYATA still appear to be friends (better description might be master and pet).

Junta Miyawaki is still to get his first win, but the boy has earned a lot of accolades with people praising him and saying he was “insanely good” in his matches. NOAH are really teasing his first win with many near pinfalls.  He has also been likened to a young Kenta Kobashi, which means that now in NOAH we have almost the Four Pillars for a new generation with Misawa (Kiyomiya) and Kawada (Kenoh) – now we just need a Taue.

NOAH have had very good attendances out in the provinces for this tour, not all venues have been sold out, but attendances have been very high. The promotion has a policy whereby they travel outside of the metropolitan areas (i.e. Tokyo, Osaka) and the big city areas and bring the show to the “provinces” (i.e. the countryside or the more rural areas on the edge of the suburbs). While this doesn’t always result in a full house (something a lot of people don’t seem to understand and they think its a reflection on NOAH ), what it does do is bring a company who unlike New Japan, All Japan, Big Japan etc doesn’t have a streaming service and\or a TV show, to people who wouldn’t see them otherwise. They have also attracted a lot of new fans too.

Global Junior League Scores (as of 18th September 2018)
Ikuto Hidaka: 6
Daisuke Harada: 6
Kotaro Suzuki: 6
Hitoshi Kumano: 4
Tadasuke: 4
Hi69: 4
Minoru Tanaka: 4
Hajime Ohara: 2
Seiya Morohashi: 2
Junta Miyawaki: 0

NOAH are back on the 29th September at Radiant Hall, Yokohama, bell sounds at 17.30


Quiet Storm has celebrated his own twenty years in wrestling on the 16th September, he debuted in 1998 (about a month after Naomichi Marufuji did) at roughly the age of seventeen, and while in America had spells with Ring of Honor, PWF and NYWC. Quiet Storm made his debut in his hometown of New York (he’s a Brooklyn boy I think). He came to Japan and trained with KAIENTAI DOJO, but had to return home due to a family situation. Aside from NOAH, his other affiliation is with Osaka Pro. He has been with NOAH since 2014.

His tag team partner, Mohammed Yone, presented him with flowers in the ring.


Current champions

  • GHC Heavyweight Champion: Takashi Sugiura
  • GHC Junior Champion: Daisuke Harada
  • GHC Heavyweight Tag Champions: Naomichi Marufuji & Akitoshi Saito
  • GHC Junior Tag Champions: Minoru Tanaka & Hi69


Atsushi Kotoge will be holding his own fan event, further details to be announced (this is not a produce)

Comedy wrestler Kikutaro (who returned to Japan to have ear surgery), announced that before he leaves for America, he wants to appear in NOAH(he was once a regular in SEM, where he memorably teamed with KENTA, who had him thrown out of the building afterwards, Kikutaro made his way back in though), and a match has been arranged against Atsushi Kotoge for the 4th October at Korakuen Hall. Kotoge has asked Kikutaro whether he wants to join the “Revolutionary Army”. What should be a very funny match, will be broadcast on Samurai on the 11th October (FYI: Fuji TV no longer exists, it is now “ForJoyTV“)

Naomichi Marufuji and Doug Williams will be having what will be their last match ever in IPW on Sunday the 23rd September. Their history was made not in NOAH or even in Japan, but in Europe. You can read about their history in an article I have written, “Farewell Europe

Hajime Ohara, (who quite rightly is called “NOAH’s treasure”), has taken part in more municipal activities in Kawasawki by lecturing the Staff Hygiene Committee about exercise that can be done at the office and at home.

Thanks to Metal-Noah who very kindly sent me a copy of “Heir to The Ark”, Naomichi Marufuji’s biography, English translation has started, and can be found here. This is a work in progress, and I hope to update it daily. The book is ranked #3 on the Japanese book charts. TOUR TIDBITS

  • Tadasuke used a chair on Seiya Morohashi (which is unusual for him).
  • Whilst in Shikoku, a big crab turned up on Hi69’s cigarette packet (its probably HAYATA shape-shifting)
  • The ceiling was so low in Hakata Stalene that people’s feet and heads grazed it.
  • Naomichi Marufuji watched “the youngsters” going off together after NOAH arrived in Kochi, and said “the old man is going to bed”
  • Tadasuke announced to Kotaro Suzuki “Hey, Fool! I am today’s NOAH Junior!” (and Kotaro Suzuki beat him down in ten minutes with the Tiger Driver)
  • Naomichi Marufuji wrapped Yoshiki Inamura in Atsushi Kotoge’s cloak, and forced him to do the “Revolution Pose”, right in front of Kotoge.
  • YO-HEY’S rambling promos include him having all his teeth knocked out (he hasn’t), and likening himself to a 16th century Japanese warlord, a champion stallion racehorse which was put out to stud (don’t ask) and then forgetting what he was talking about. He is still convinced that he will be facing Yoshiki Inamura in the finals of Global Junior League, despite the fact that Inamura isn’t in Global Junior League.
  • Yoshinari Ogawa took Atsushi Kotoge’s cape and used it to wipe his boots, much to Kotoge’s horror.
  • Ehime Pro did an opening exhibition at Noah’s show at TEXPORT Imbari
  • Yoshiki Inamura getting good reviews.
  • Go Shiozaki went to shake hands with Kotoge, but Kotoge drew his hand back, wiped his head and walked off (Shiozaki, notorious for giggling, couldn’t keep a straight face)
  • NOAH have had a crack down on people filming at the event, Atsushi Kotoge said “Heroes obey the rules”.
  • Masao Inoue is holding another bowling event, wrestlers participating will be Atsushi Kotoge, Kaito Kiyomiya and Tadasuke
  • On September 17th, Atsushi Kotoge, Kenoh, Katsuhiko Nakajima and Masa Kitamiya went to a sports bar and spent until the early hours watching classic Four Pillars era All Japan (the match Kotoge photographed on the TV was Mitsuharu Misawa vs Kenta Kobashi on the 21st October 1997. When this match took place, Kotoge and Kenoh would have been 12, Kitamiya 14 and Nakajima 9).
  • Cody Hall and Maybach Taniguchi now have a finisher called “The Hooligans Bomb”.

  • On the long drive back from Tottori to Tokyo, (about nine to eleven hours), Takashi Sugiura photographed Masao Inoue at the urinal (twice), and then predictably, things got even worse when Marufuji filmed Inoue eating an ice cream on the bus, and then pausing to look briefly at a passing woman. Between Marufuji and Sugiura, this turned into Inoue thinking about “licking” women…

Lets just end this newsletter here until next week.

Mitchell’s NJPW AXS TV Results: G1 Climax 28, part 11!



NJPW G1 Climax 28 cover

NJPW and AXS bring us the B Block finals! Will it be Tetsuya Naito of one of the Golden Lovers who qualifies for THE G1 Climax 28 Finals?!


This coverage of the G1 Climax 28 will be as broadcast by AXS TV.

Gifs can be found on



  • Tetsuya Naito VS Zack Sabre Jr; ZSJ wins.
  • Kenny Omega VS Kota Ibushi; Ibushi wins.


NJPW and AXS set the scene for this final night of B Block action!

It all comes down to this! The Best Bout Machine lost to Tomohiro Ishii and Toru Yano in a row, though one was in part thanks to Tama Tonga. However, the IWGP Heavyweight Champion is still one win away from being in his third consecutive G1 Climax Finals. That win must come at the expense of Kenny Omega’s best friend, Kota Ibushi, in this Golden Lovers dream match. Ibsuhi could take the entire block with his own win, but there’s also last year’s G1 Climax champion. Tetsuya Naito can make his own repeat appearance if he defeats Zack Sabre Jr, who would love to play spoiler with his submission style. Who will meet Hiroshi Tanahashi in the G1 Climax 28 Finals?!


Tetsuya Naito VS Zack Sabre Jr!

The charismatic leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon takes on Suzuki-Gun’s Submission Master, a familiar match up from this year’s New Japan Cup. Naito takes his time with his attire, as usual, but ZSJ is patient. The referee finishes his check of both men, rings the bell, and we begin.

ZSJ rushes Naito then throws him out. He pursues but Naito slips back out to then troll ZSJ with a game of cat ‘n’ mouse. ZSJ grows frustrated and starts kicking railing like his mentor, Minoru Suzuki. Taka Michinoku calms Zack down and gets him back to the ring. Naito tells ZSJ to return, saying time is of the essence. ZSJ returns but Naito speeds things up. They both run and dodge, then Naito Tranquilos! But ZSJ grabs the arm for the armbar! Naito gets the ropes for the ropebreak and ZSJ mocks Tranquilo before letting Naito go. Naito takes his time returning, to again troll ZSJ. Red Shoes counts but Naito waits to return at about 10.

Kenny Omega VS Kota Ibushi!

They may not always have been a team, but the Golden Lovers have always been friends and rivals. The Cleaner is the IWGP Heavyweight Champion, but the Golden Star won’t give up his own desire for that belt. A dream match becomes reality, but who will live the dream of competing in the tournament finals?

Winner: Kota Ibushi, by pinfall; Ibushi earns 2 points, Omega earns 0

The Golden Lovers dream match ends with Ibushi scoring a victory over the IWGP Heavyweight Champion! With this, Ibushi wins the B Block and qualifies for THE G1 Climax 27 Finals! Ibushi meets Hiroshi Tanahashi for that chance at the title at Wrestle Kingdom. But because they’re great friends, Omega celebrates with Ibushi before letting him take the ring alone.

Ibushi speaks.

“Kenny, Matt, Nick,” and everyone in the Elite, “Thank you very much.” Ibushi thanks all the wrestlers in NJPW, too. Ibushi still lives in the G1 Climax, and vows to win the finals the very next day. He keeps things short and sweet so that he and the Elite can all leave together. Can the Star surpass The Ace to then give us a sequel to this amazing match? Or will The Once in a Century Talent score his third G1 Climax championship?


Backstage interviews.

The Golden Elite are all together, as Omega notes that he somehow made it here on his own power. He admits he doesn’t like that he lost, especially as champion. But losing to his tag partner and best friend, Ibushi, and knowing he goes to the finals to face Tanahashi, makes Omega happy. Omega gives his full support, and will be in Ibushi’s corner. Ibushi accepts his friend’s support, and is himself very happy. He can’t believe he won. It doesn’t seem real yet. But Ibushi has made it to the finals, and again vows to win it all. He’s been focused on that single goal, he just has one match to go. Was tonight’s dream match a preview of Wrestle Kingdom? Or perhaps something sooner rather than later?



My Thoughts:

An amazing night, especially factoring in the context of the incredible action. Naito VS ZSJ in a New Japan Cup goes the same way as the match in the New Japan Cup, but naturally escalated up. Naito was well-prepared for the submissions and got the ropebreak quite a few times, but in the end ZSJ wins out. Given the points, it makes sense to keep Naito out of the running. It adds drama to Omega VS Ibushi, because then it becomes another “win and you’re in.” Actually, B Block parallels A Block in that respect, as Jay White was the third man who could complicate Okada VS Tanahashi, until he lost to Evil. But Naito is fine not going into the finals again, as fans still love him, and there’s plenty of unfinished business with other wrestlers, such as Chris Jericho over the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.

Then Omega VS Ibushi is definitely worthy of a block finals. The story was already there with them being such close friends and tag team partners. The counters, the back and forth, it was so great. Ibushi benefits the most from winning here because he was perhaps the underdog against the IWGP Heavyweight Champion, and now earns the right to challenge Omega even without the G1 Climax contract for Wrestle Kingdom. Of course, Tomohiro Ishii has a similar claim he can make, so Ibushi can wait for one of the bigger NJPW events to give us the epic sequel.

My Score: 8.9/10

CMLL Anniversary

We saw at the anniversary show, in predictable fashion, Rush and Cavernario defeat Volador and Matt Taven in the hair vs hair match. Everyone knew what the result would be which helped kill intrigue in the match because as discussed before, if CMLL was willing to hair Rush lose his hair it would be against LA Park and if he were to lose it against anybody else it wouldn’t make sense. So Volador and Taven lost 2 falls to 1 and at the end of the match, as a way to weasel out of it Taven turned on Volador as if it was his plan all along but they weren’t going to stand for it. I wonder how much Taven had his head shaved, I suppose we shall see on the next Ring of Honor live event. The show was pretty close to a sell out containing 16,000 fans.

The Co-main event saw Pentagon, Fenix, and Diamante Azul defeating LA Park, his son, and Caristico 2 falls to 1 in what was a very good match. LA Park, for a man who is very large in his older age can still put on some very good matches and held his own in their with the much young Fenix and Pentagon and the always entertaining Caristico. The match before that which was the Kaos Klan vs Los Guerrero’s for the trios title. This wasn’t in technical terms a very good match, but it had heat on it. One of the issues was the finish was a complete let down and out of nowhere. Not in a good way either, sometimes out of nowhere finishes are good if they’re done during hot moments, but this one was just a standard pin with feet on the ropes.

CMLL Friday Show/Future

The top three matches for this show will feature a rematch with Kaos Klan and Los Guerrero’s. This is the third time this match is happening in a short span so I wonder if they will have Los Guerrero’s win here after potentially swerving the fans at the Anniversary show. It was a weak finish and wasn’t a good match so I have to imagine that they’re going to put forth a better performance this time. However, a lot of the men involved are much older and broken down so they need the pomp and circumstances more. We also have a lightning round match between Mistico and Negro Casas so that should be something. They must be going for a program with them.

In the main event we have, Atlantis, King Fenix, and Diamante Azul vs Rush, Cavernario, and El Terrible. I wonder if my theory about building a program with Rush and Atlantis for next year starts and if maybe they move towards Fenix and Cavernario. I can only imagine how good those singles matches would be. LA Park worked the Arena Puebla show with Rush in the match. This was a very good match, perhaps an anniversary show standard.

There was a lot of instances in the match where Park and Rush had a show down one on one in the ring. It was a very long match and very good. Rush won with a low blow and Park then cut a promo after the match challenging him hair vs mask again to which CMLL cut his mic. But it magically turned on when Rush got the mic. Park was upset and left. They are promoting LA Park and Hijo Del LA Park vs Rush and Cavernario next week for the Monday Puebla show. So it looks like they’re going back to this well for financial purposes, who knows if the hair vs mask match will ever happen.


AAA has announced their big October Show, the Antonio Pena tribute show, and it has a pretty big card, with the main event being Jeff Jarrett vs Dr. Wagner Jr in a hair vs hair match. I’m almost positive Jarrett is losing that match especially if they’re building towards Park vs Wagner at the next Triplemania. Wagner is gonna need to have more hair grown out to make it a viable match on paper. He doesn’t have much hair so why would the fans buy his hair vs the value of Park’s mask? I feel like there’d be so much more intrigue with Psycho Clown vs Park mask vs mask, but it all depends on when and who Park wants to lose to. Everyone seems to agree that it has to be to Rush whenever the time is.

Also on that card which we’ll preview more in the coming weeks, Park will team with Psycho Clown against Murder Clown and Kevin Kross. So something is going to have to happen in the coming weeks that pairs Kross with Murder Clown because they were just attacking each other during the last encounter with Wagner and Jeff Jarrett. A three way tag match for the tag titles will happen and Bandido and Flamita will actually get their chance. There was rumblings wondering if AAA would remember the stipulation on the Triplemania show. There’s also a four way match for the women’s title. More info in the coming weeks as the card gets built on the TV tapings.

AAA on Twitch 9/21

We will have a women’s match to start the show, which seems to be typical featuring, Keyra, Lady Maravilla, and Starfire vs Faby Apache, La Hiedra, and Lady Shani. We get a six man tag team match next which will be action packed featuring, Emperador Azteca, Demus, and Ciclon Ramierz vs Aerostar, Argenis, and Nino Hamburguesa. The next match is a three way tag match between Texano Jr and Escorpion vs Maximo and Mamba vs El Hijo De Dr. Wagner Jr and Golden Magic.

The co-main event is another six man tag between, Laredo Kid, Tayrys, and Hijo Del LA Park vs La Parka, Pagano, and Joe Lider. Any match with Joe Lider and Pagano is bound to be crazy. The main event sees LA Park teaming with Electro Shock vs Psycho Clown and El Hijo Del Fantasma. The theme of this show is Lucha Libre Elite vs AAA. They’re playing up an invasion storyline. They have another show on September 30th but I will preview that one next week.
