We’ve made it! After what feels like years, it’s time for me to close out World Tag League by reviewing the all-important final. Who will seal that hallowed spot at Wrestle Kingdom? That’s not something that you can earn by just walking through the curtain and demanding to be added to the match… Anyway, unlike the rest of the tour, I’m going to review the whole show because why not? We’re entering Dome season, so I’m in an excellent mood. Let’s do this!Continue reading
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
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
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!
There are seven tournament matches on this show. SEVEN! Are you kidding my New Japan? I sat down assuming it was going to be another three or four match job, a quick review before bed. SEVEN! Jesus Christ. Well, better get on with it.
Night six of World Tag League and I suspect I am never going to catch-up with this damn tournament. Still, I reviewed every match of Best of the Super Juniors, the G1 and Super Junior Tag League, so I’m sure as hell not going to fall at the final hurdle. Plenty of people want to read out of date reviews of a mediocre competition, don’t they?
I’ve been harsh on World Tag League so far, but you know what? It’s not been horrible. With that endorsement ringing in New Japan’s ears, let’s see what went down on day five.
Day four and there’s still not much to say up here. It’s World Tag League, you know what you’re getting yourself in to. Plaster a smile on your face, grab yourself a beverage and try to enjoy it as much as you can.
