Takashi Iizuka is hanging up his boot, and despite (at best) being ambivalent about him, I can’t help feeling a bit emotional. Sure, I’ve spent the last couple of years moaning about his bitey ways, but that doesn’t mean I hate the old cannibal. He’s alright really. Let’s see him out in style!Continue reading “NJPW New Japan Road (21/2/19) Review”
Sweet baby Jesus, we’re so close to putting this fucker to bed! After this show, we only have the final left which brings with it an Ibushi match, so I’m looking forward to that. One last push and we’re done with World Tag League for another year. If we grit our teeth and think of Kota, we can get through it together.Read more
As mentioned in yesterday’s review, I’m trying my hardest to cut down on the rambling as I cover the last few days of World Tag League. It’s time to wrap this baby up and with the final having already happened, no one is craving 2000 words on night fourteen. So, here’s 1500! (That’s a joke… kind of.)
As I write this, the World Tag League final is occurring. Meanwhile, I still have three shows, including this one, to catch up on. It’s time to speed things up a bit. Brevity when talking about wrestling is not something I excel at, but hey, one should challenge one’s self. Let’s see how I get on.Continue reading “NJPW World Tag League Night Fourteen (4/12/18) Review”
I have nothing to say here. It’s another Tag League show, it’s probably going to be much like the others, but I’ve decided I’m going to review all the fuckers so I’m damn well going to. Now, let’s watch wrestling.Continue reading “NJPW World Tag League Night Thirteen (3/12/18) Review”
We’re drawing ever closer to the end of World Tag League 2018, and I shan’t be sad to see it go. It hasn’t been an awful tournament, but I do feel like I’ve put a shitload of time into something that has not affected my life either positively or negatively. That’s a bit sad, isn’t it? Oh dear. Let’s stop thinking and start reviewing.Continue reading “NJPW World Tag League Night Twelve (2/12/18) Review”
We have questions! Why has Chuck gone crazy, em, what’s the other one? Okay, let me rephrase that. We have a question! Why has gone Chuck gone crazy? Something tells me we won’t be getting the answer this quickly because NJPW loves a tease. Gosh and indeed darn it.Continue reading “NJPW World Tag League Night Eleven (30/11/18) Review”
We’re into double figures as night ten of World Tag League rolls into town. Well, it actually hit ten around a week ago, but it’s only just got to my flat. I’m going to stop blabbering and start reviewing.
We’re somehow onto night nine of World Tag League which is even more mental when you consider the rest of the world is at fifteen or something daft like that. That’s a lot of shows full of wrestling that most people are never going to think about again. I guess it’s different if you see it live. Or if you decide to write reviews about it all… on with the show!
Another seven-match show from New Japan. That’s a lot of wrestling to get through, or at least it feels like it. In reality, it’s quite a reasonable amount, and by New Japan standards these matches are kept quite short, so I shouldn’t be complaining. It’s unlikely anyone is about to wrestle a thirty-minute draw.
