NJPW: Invasion Attack
April 5, 2015
Ryogoku Sumo Hall
The current IWGP champs are as follows:
IWGP Heavyweight Champion: AJ Styles (2/11/2015)
IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion: Kenny Omega (1/4/2015)
IWGP Tag Team Champions: Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson (2/11/2015)
IWGP Jr. Tag Team Champions: The Young Bucks (2/11/2015)
IWGP Intercontinental Champion: Shinsuke Nakamura (9/21/2014)
NEVER Openweight Champion: Tomohiro Ishii (2/14/2015)
The Bullet Club has gone FULL 1997 nWo-style on the championships in New Japan. Tonight, all four of their championships are on the line. New Japan Cup winner Kota Ibushi meets IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles in the main event, Kenny Omega defends his IWGP Jr. Heavyweight crown against Mascara Dorada, Rocky Romero and Baretta take on the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Champs the Young Bucks, and Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson battle over the IWGP tag belts with the Kingdom from Ring of Honor. SO MANY POSSIBILITIES FOR CHANGE.
NOTE: If you’re looking for a hardcore puroresu fan perspective for this show, unfortunately you’ve come to the wrong place. I am at best a casual fan of New Japan, but the World Pro Wrestling show on AXS is peaking my interest in what they are capable of doing, so that’s why this recap is happening. That being said, I will do my best to not assume anything or hopefully make you roll your eyes at my ignorance as I hope that doesn’t show through all too much.

I am totally in the mood for some puroresu.
Sorry for the delay. I hate to always have the same old story for being SO incredibly late with these things: school, work, and trying to have a life in between those two all getting in the way. And we begin! Read the rest of this entry
WWE.com Legacy on Demand Showcase
Since we can’t get 24/7 here in North Carolina just yet, I’ve subscribed to WWE’s online on demand service which is FILLED with stuff to watch that I haven’t ever seen. Not from just WWE, but from other territories and companies over the years much like WWE 24/7 offers, only it’s online.
I’ll be taking requests from people who want something reviewed/recapped, which I’ll work on completing a mix bag of matches like you’ll see here once a month. Just put your requests in the comment section. All I ask is no PPV matches and NO MORE THAN ONE EPISODE of the weekly programming (Raw, Wrestling Challenge, Superstars, House Shows) at a time. Believe it or not, I will get around to the PPV matches AND I just don’t have the time to do a bunch more programming than I’m already doing. I hope you all understand. So without further ado, here we go with my first edition. Read the rest of this entry
