    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    They did the same last year made a bunch of cuts and then announced record profits I expect the same again at the next call whenever that is.
  2. An ankle injury the morning of the show I think

    Most unselfish top guy

    His last title reign was there because they lost most of their tv, Kobashi was injured and marufuji+ Rikio had failed. Yes he held it for a year but that was because he was the draw. Noah outsid eof the big markets used sold shows often to people who weren't caught up on wrestling in 2007 they wanted to still see Misawa and Kobashi etc not someone like KENTA. To establish himself as a proper champion not a transitional one so that when he lost it to morishima it as you say meant more. A 400 day reign still seems a little excessive to me but it does make sense.

    WWE Elimination Chamber 2021

    Across two companies but because nearly everyone went from one to the other I think taue counts. He lost the triple crown in July 96 to Kobashi. He beat Rikio for the ghc title in November 2005. Mochizuki went from final gate 2011 where he lost the dream gate to CIMA and then won the title again in 2017 Vs YAMATO. There are probably some others I could come up with but really the point @Stiva Made stands, ten years is a very long time to go between world titles in the same company without long injury layoff or a return from retirement. Especially in a promotion that has as many title changes as WWE.
  5. I think it was at X8 vs flair when afterwards he held up his fingers one by one to count off his victories was the an early mention of it, but yeah the orton match is the first one where it is an important point in the build up. what is that 2005/6?

    The phrase "beginning to roll out" implies that it will not all be there upon launch

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Sort of like the Baba image on the curtains of AJPW shows in 2001/2 or the photo of misawa at the June NOAH shows but instead it is a giant statue glaring down at everything from the entrance ramp all year round. All wrestlers are required to bow to it while entering and talk to it as if Vince is really there during promos.

    Best of 2020

    This is about difficult as 2020 was the year when I watched the least wrestling in years, probably since I started watching wrestling in 2009 I just didn't care about anything even the promotions I actually like and would normally watch (AJPW, NOAH, BJW). I think I watched 3 matches from June to the end of the year. Those being the cc final, Kenoh Vs kiyomiya and shiozaki Vs nakajima from the same show. All three of which got a lot of praise both of which I thought were *shrug*. That is the same way I have thought about all wrestling apart from one match since march. That match being shiozaki Vs fujita from march, if you have watched that match you know if you don't know anything about it it really helps going in blind. That was a very long and roundabout way of saying Moty: fujita Vs shiozaki for actually entertaining me despite the lack of crowd. They did something with it that would be impossible to do with a crowd. There were some I remember with crowds, kiyomiya Vs shiozaki January and suwama Vs kento march I both remember being great but they feel like from a different world. As for wrestler and promotion, I guess NOAH and go shiozaki pretty much by default. Haven't watched anything this year yet, I honestly don't know if I will for a good while yet. I still read about wrestling but in terms of watching anything there is no drive for me to care to. Is anyone else in the same boat as me where they haven't watch much at all?

    WWE TV 12/14 - 12/20 *vacated space*

    Shuji is still fine in tags but his singles matches have not been consistently any good since the second Kento TC match in 2017. He just feels so tired to me, especially compared to his partner SUWAMA who despite being in AJPW far longer and being a lot slower than he used to still feels like he has more to give. As for Styles I haven't seen anything of his since the Nakamura match at mania and he looked lethargic to me then, if it is worse now then it would strike me as sad.
  10. Nothing concrete as of writing so I didn't want to make a dedicated thread but there is a lot of noise on twitter talking about Pat Patterson having passed away.
  11. Jarrett as well in 98/99?
  12. According to cagematch, McIntyre has defended twice on TV once Vs Big show and once in a tag in June with r truth Vs lashley and MVP. Neither of which were the main event. For the other belt Rollins defended against rusev in September in a no contest. Not exactly the memorable matches you were after. Last big one would be Lesnar Vs Kofi maybe? But that wasn't exactly much of a match.

    Backlash 2020 - The one with the GREATEST MATCH EVER

    I second this opinion brilliant write-up

    WrestleMania 36

    I haven't watched the shows or anything but something stood out to me. Did HHH not have a match on either night?

    AJPW video quality

    The really high quality versions of the matches are the ones released on DVD or shown remastered on the G+ tv channel. these are very select shows or compilation DVDs, I cant remember if Hansen Kobashi 93 was on any of the Kobashi DVDs, I know 91 and 96 are but i will try to find 93 for you. most of them if released will be out there available to buy in japan the UK or the USA. I know highspots has one of the Kobashi DVDs with the high quality videos but that one doesn't have the 93 match edit: have had a look the 93 match does not appear anywhere with the HD version which is a bit odd considering in famous nature. The main event of that show is available but that was for a Misawa DVD not the whole show being done in HD. As for the 90 Vader match the longest version I could find was the one on NJPW world which is about 18 minutes long.
