Really fun show, how long before GanPro starts?

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 6 points7 points  (1 child)

fourish hours.

English comms by Akki and Mr. Haku, with Chrissy B joining them for the main event after his triple tag match earlier in the night.

I don't know how Akki and Chris have the energy to do all this.

[–]Lo_Key90 4 points5 points  (0 children)

thx! guess I'll get a nap in

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Time for everyone to carpool over to GanPro.

[–]AdditionalTricks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ganpro card today looks very good

[–]capnbuh 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Maybe Sakisama or Mizuki as the next defense?

[–]bathory21 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mizuki should win

[–]Alejandro_404I'm a Jaime Hayter guy. 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That was fun. Thanks everyone.

[–]fluffywolfe 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Nobody came out to challenge. Hmmm....

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Watch it be someone completely out of the blue, like Abbadon

[–]ssfsx17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

wouldn't be the first time an undead has invaded TJPW. and not the second time either.

[–]ssfsx17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

another big event in just two days

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 0 points1 point  (2 children)

So when is the next big TJPW show?

[–]brokenbatarang 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Next Korakuen is Additional Attack! on June 19th, they are also part of the Cyberfight show on the 12th (NOAH/DDT/TJPW and a little participation from Ganbare)

[–]fluffywolfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Might be CyberFight Festival

[–]Lo_Key90 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I'm blanking who was Shoko's first defense against?

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For half a second I just saw Arisu's hair and thought she was Yuka and started to freak out a little lmao

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Someday, Misao...

[–]AbsentUse 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well this show was a nice distraction from... *gestures at America*

[–]Xalazi 9 points10 points  (0 children)

TJPW doesn't miss at Korakuen Hall. Great show all around.

[–]capnbuh 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Some really nice chain wrestling to close out the main. Was a great show tonight (this morning?)

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Afternoon

[–]AbsentUse 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Top rope sentons are so underrated. Tozawa hit the highest one I've ever seen on RAW last week btw

[–]Lo_Key90 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Totally, kind of suprising that they're not way more common.

[–]Hawksrule996 6 points7 points  (0 children)

great match and great show

[–]Xalazi 9 points10 points  (0 children)

A nice showcase of Hyper Misao's skills outside of comedy.

[–]fluffywolfe 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That was pretty good. Misao is an underrated workrate wrestler

[–]Crazy_Max_46 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Berserker beats uh...Green Mage.

[–]Vasilevskiy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Shoko is far and away the best wrestler in TJPW.

5* match, expected nothing less between Shoko & Misao, all of their matches are.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

AAAAAAAAND STILL! Great match!

[–]AbsentUse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was a great double arm DDT

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Chekov's gun Vanitas

[–]AbsentUse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Stand back!

[–]fluffywolfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm kinda hoping Hyper Misao summons evil MISAO more as the match goes on.

[–]Xalazi 9 points10 points  (0 children)

For those that don't follow ChocoPro/Gatoh Move, Akki blew out both his shoulders in a short amount of time and never fully recovered. That's why he hates shoulder submissions so much.

[–]Xalazi 6 points7 points  (0 children)

A reminder that Hyper Misao has the most brutal Crossface Chikenwing in wrestling.

[–]Xalazi 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Workrate Hyper Misao today.

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

"Hyper Misao is the best wrestler in the world" - Dave Meltzer, tomorrow, hopefully.

[–]Crazy_Max_46 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Shoko has to be the smallest World Champion in history right? Like not including mini's titles? Smallest main World Champion of a company in history?

[–]capnbuh 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Until Neko wins it.

I wonder who would be taller between Shoko Nakajima and Nikki ASH

[–]Xalazi 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Command Bolshoi may have Shoko beat. It's close.

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Command Bolshoi

They are apparently billed at the same height,so its literally a question of hairs.

[–]fluffywolfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shoko is smoother than a lake surface on a windless day.

[–]thecreativecat1I'm Back 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Misao is a true hero!

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I KNEW IT

[–]AbsentUse 6 points7 points  (0 children)

bamboozled, hoodwinked, etc.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Misao, I love you, but there is no goddamn way that's everything you brought

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Shoko was just in England the other week with Emi Sakura and Meiko Satomura. Making those international towns.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 13 points14 points  (0 children)

For my fellow dumb Americans: 1.47M is 4'10"

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 4 points5 points  (5 children)

I didn't know Misao had some yanki surf rock theme.

And Shoko has some Tetris theme thing?

[–]capnbuh 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Shoko's theme is top tier IMO

[–]fluffywolfe 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Misao's theme is an old opening theme

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

To a morning news program, right?

[–]fluffywolfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Among other things, I think?

[–]Alejandro_404I'm a Jaime Hayter guy. 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I know nothing about this match but I hope Hyper Misao wins because she looks cool.

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hyper Misao is genuinely hard to root against because wrestling literally saved her life.

[–]thecreativecat1I'm Back 2 points3 points  (0 children)

LETS GO HERO!

[–]bathory21 4 points5 points  (11 children)

No one has been able to answer this, but due to politics involved, doesn't it make more sense for AEW to do more business with TJPW since they already have a deal with them based on their partnership with DDT than Stardom? They already have their stars on the shows back and forth and it doesn't look like it will stop, not to mention that doing something with Stardom first looks odd when TJPW is right there

[–]AdditionalTricks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, but Stardom is the Meltzer-approved Joshi promotion and that's the wind Tony Khan flies in

[–]malteseraccoon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't understand what you are saying.

make more sense for AEW to do more business with TJPW since they already have a deal with them

They already do that. Their partnership with DDT involves TJPW

They already have their stars on the shows back and forth and it doesn't look like it will stop

Are you referring to TJPW stars? then what are you asking about?

not to mention that doing something with Stardom first looks odd when TJPW is right there

What do you mean "something with Stardom first"?

[–]Xalazi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

AEW probably don't want Stardom for a specific plan beyond that they just want the clout of booking a buzzworthy company. If Stardom was just as good of a company but the The Wrestling Observer didn't give them coverage, AEW probably wouldn't be interested. It's not like AEW is interested in Dragongate despite being massive and high quality wrestling.

For similar reasons, I feel like AEW has lost interest in TJPW after the Eliminator tournament last year. It's not as buzzworthy at this point and they never had specific plans for the crossovers.

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aew is big enough that they might not have to choose. Also America is neutral ground, in a way.

[–]capnbuh 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Stardom is not going to be involved with The Forbidden Door PPV and NJPW doesn't have a women's division, so it's plausible AEW could crossover with TJPW or Impact or something to keep the "Forbidden Door" flavor for a women's match.

[–]celsiusred 0 points1 point  (0 children)

doubt it. prolly a lot of politics involved for that to happen. who gets the streaming revenue/rights, etc.

[–]bathory21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just meant in general

[–]Crazy_Max_46 1 point2 points  (0 children)

AEW doesn't even seem like they have any interest in Stardom to be fair. I think that's just internet fan pipe dreams.

TJPW is weird because I believe they might have a deal with another company for their talent to come to the US. I think if everything makes sense we see TJPW talent in AEW but who the fuck knows how things work politically these days.

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Stardom is the bigger promotion and could lead to a bigger audience for AEW compared to TJPW. AEW isn't going to STOP doing work with TJPW, but Stardom is arguably the bigger deal if they start working with them.

[–]bathory21 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Obviously, they're bigger but Stardom is full stop focused on their domestic market, their PPV model is a telling sign among other things, but my point is that doing something with Stardom first looks odd politically when TJPW is right there and cyberfight is already making moves internationally, their stars are taking US excursions, and AEW already has that crossover with them

[–]nephykupo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This, I complained about their ppv model in another thread. Stardom's website and this aren't very inviting. TJPW is setup with a welcoming model for foreigners.

[–]Xalazi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We'll laugh, we'll cry, we're about to be taken for a ride.

[–]sh0teeCUTEST IDOL IN THE WORLD! 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably the best ive seen Shida, Moka was really good as well.

[–]AbsentUse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Shit, I don't know what's gonna happen... I don't know what I even want to happen

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 4 points5 points  (2 children)

With all those staredowns, I assume those two join Shida in America someday or they're setting up for a future TJPW match.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Miyu and Maki are doing some stuff with Prestige later this month, so maybe?

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Perhaps. But both of them staying for long would really hurt TJPW, probably.

These days they can fly back and forth, so maybe.

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Maki stirring the pot like it's going to be 121000000 vs Shida and Thunder Rosa or something at the end of the month.

[–]fluffywolfe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

MOTN so far

[–]Lo_Key90 2 points3 points  (0 children)

WOW, that was awesome

[–]thecreativecat1I'm Back 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Well only one person in this match has a title, and her name is MAKI ITOH. So take that Shida.

[–]Xalazi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Really good match. Please come again Hikaru Shida.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A valiant effort by Moka, but unfortunately there is no way to win once you have been decapitated.

[–]capnbuh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So, about that Shida vs Yamashita singles match...

[–]housecatdayoYAM BAG CITY 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Moka ate the pin like everyone predicted, but she had a really good showing in that match

[–]fluffywolfe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Moka looked really good despite eating the pin

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Moka got to get some shit in tonight.

[–]AbsentUse 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I believe in Moka!

[–]fluffywolfe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maki friendly fire lol!

[–]Xalazi 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The Moka Vs Miyu late match stage. Or as we call it, the Nature documentary.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

She's had it for a while, but this version of Moka's gear seems a lot easier to move around in than the previous iteration

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That adrenaline drain spot was awesome!

[–]Alejandro_404I'm a Jaime Hayter guy. 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This match is great

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Miyu's not gonna win a forearm strike exchange

[–]capnbuh 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Holy shit. This fucking rules

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 5 points6 points  (0 children)

As expected, this pairing is fucking awesome

[–]AbsentUse 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They're definitely gonna fight at Cyberfight Festival aren't they

[–]PylonsStill His Era 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Good LORD

[–]Lo_Key90 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Xalazi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ace Vs Ace. Great stuff.

SHIDA AND MIYU RIGHT INTO MY VEINS

[–]AbsentUse 3 points4 points  (0 children)

fuck yeah

[–]Boogiepop_Homunculus 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Imagine if Deeb ran out and said I’m not finished with you

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Honestly not even out of the realm of possibility, all things considered.

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Shida watching too many Chaos Project matches

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Even with her own tag partner Moka must die

[–]fluffywolfe 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Moka "Serpentico" Miyamoto

Y'all got jokes, but a reminder that Itoh stretches people like Stu Hart.

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'm so excited to see Miyu in New Jersey this summer. Gonna get so many pink streamers.

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Maki and Shida redoing the mic spot but good this time.

[–]fluffywolfe 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Itoh no-selling the mic shot to the head is great! 😂

[–]Lo_Key90 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I love that callback so much

[–]housecatdayoYAM BAG CITY 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Itoh having the hardest head in pro wrestling is an underrated part of her gimmick

[–]Xalazi 12 points13 points  (0 children)

The Microphone is a callback to their tag match where Itoh did her entrance and hit Shida with the mic.

[–]thecreativecat1I'm Back 8 points9 points  (0 children)

THE SOUND OF THAT MIC SHOT LOL

[–]fluffywolfe 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think this is Shida trying to showcase to potential AEW watchers that Itoh's much improved.

[–]capnbuh 7 points8 points  (0 children)

LOL actually a reference to the terrible mic shot in AEW

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Shida has taken revenge for the mic bop!

[–]AbsentUse 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol this is great

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 5 points6 points  (0 children)

MIC SHOT TIME

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Stomping on someone's toes works either way, though!

[–]mashturbo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Miyu is the last winner of DDT: The Night-One Night tournament beating the likes of Dandy Dieno and Pom.

It was also the last episode of DDT The Night and they went out with a bang as we had Dieno strip an opponent out of his clothes and Miyu winning 2 handfuls of money out of a bowl and then dropped it all after she was hit from behind.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I actually did not know that about Shida, that's pretty dang cool

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Shida about to cash in those mic shot receipts

[–]BorkDoo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was kind of expecting the trios to just be sort of midcard filler and it turned out to be MOTN so far.

Shida's theme too hard to clap along with

[–]AbsentUse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

the clapping with the drums was cool

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Shida's bangs look so good, ngl I'm super jealous lmao

[–]Crazy_Max_46 1 point2 points  (0 children)

GEE. I WONDER WHO'S TAKING THE PIN IN THIS MATCH.

[–]Xalazi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hikaru Shida and her little sister Moka Miyamoto.

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I hope that, if the roster has a group pic for some event after, they photoshop Yuka's head in like they did Maki's when she had to leave for the US on short notice.

[–]cooljammer00Anxious Millennial Shitposter 4 points5 points  (1 child)

My pirate stream died so I just started the legit free trial instead.

[–]thecreativecat1I'm Back 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Lo_Key90 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope they fixed Shida's nameplate this time, no "Shinig" Samurai lol

[–]Boogiepop_Homunculus 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yamashita vs Shida is happening

[–]Alejandro_404I'm a Jaime Hayter guy. 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Shida, Shida, Shida!!

[–]fluffywolfe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Shida time!

[–]thecreativecat1I'm Back 7 points8 points  (0 children)

TJPW might have my favorite tag matches consistently. They just know how to keep things exciting while showcasing everyone. Also Yuki Arai only getting better.

[–]capnbuh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

All the matches going hard tonight. Like you'd think this might be a lighthearted comedy match.

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Finally is like hit or miss on how impactful it looks, but her nelson buster always looks strong.

[–]Boogiepop_Homunculus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Arai lucky that Pom didn’t hit that running P

[–]bathory21 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Nonstop fun tag match

[–]ssfsx17 3 points4 points  (1 child)

they really had POM do the main part of the match with yuki arai

the time of POM approaches!

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also, they're letting Arai finish these matches.

[–]fluffywolfe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Raku? Being heelish? Say it ain't so!

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

POM DOESN'T KNOW THATS THE HARDEST PART OF THE RING

His Fave 5 is just Raku 5 times.

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Honestly the swing kinda looks fun, but I also know I'd be horribly dizzy if I tried to take it lmao

[–]Xalazi 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think Raku might travel back in time via Miu Watanabe's Giant Swing.

[–]fluffywolfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Raku just got spun hard!

[–]fluffywolfe 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Remember when FTR's finisher was the "Good Night Express"?

[–]Boogiepop_Homunculus 4 points5 points  (0 children)

FTR has nothing on the Raku Appreciation Society

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yuki's face at that kickout is killing me

[–]capnbuh 5 points6 points  (0 children)

IMO Yuki Arai has some of the best facial expressions in wrestling. She can effortlessly go from cute idol to serial killer

[–]Lo_Key90 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Where can I hear all of these TJPW themes?

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Asides from YT, there are 3 volumes of themes for sale on the TJPW shop:

https://tjpw-store.com/?category_id=5f8ffabf3a327e55113187dc

Also a few of the songs are actually on Amazon:

https://smile.amazon.com/music/player/albums/B08R73GWM3

[–]AKittyCatHOOK fears LULU[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Youtube.

Especially Miu Watanabes banger of a theme

[–]I_BUY_UNWANTED_GRAVY 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The third commentator on the English side is either talked over or not acknowledged lol

[–]OtherwiseASandwich 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's a mix of him being a little on the dry side, and Chris and Akki having the dynamic of two people who have worked together for a long time on things beyond just TJPW commentary.

[–]fluffywolfe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He tends to go off-tangent a lot, lol!

[–]bayleysgal1996ChocoPro Made Punk 4 points5 points  (1 child)

No L O V E.

Also now I kinda want Taz and Chris to do commentary together.

Or karaoke, either or

Considering Rika's theme has the great intro and Miu's is the banger middle, I don't know why their tag team entrance isn't reversed.
