Naito doing this is always the best
Not gonna lie WK12 will be the best ppv of next year unless dominion kills it like it did this year.

I still follow/watch raw/sd every week and even tho its getting wayyyyy better than the beginning 3/4 of this year, its not going to get to NJPWs level by next year

Is Ishii not in a match yet? That'd be pretty disappointing if he just does some filler stuff, his matches are always one of the highlights of Wrestle Kingdom for me.

I think WWE's always gonna be worse than it could be as long as it's this overexposed and has the Roman inevitably cloud hanging over it. I don't even really hate Roman either but man

I love Ishiis matches but isn't he becoming more of a gatekeeper right now?


Roman's matches are getting slowly better and better though, him and cesaro on monday was incredible. they need to get rid of brock lesnar tho

You're probably more up to date on NJPW than I am, I'm a pretty casual fan of it. I'd rather see Ishii vs Suzuki than Goto vs Suzuki at least though because I've never managed to get myself to care about Goto

I think Roman has pretty much always been a good wrestler but it's underwhelming how all roads lead to Roman main eventing Wrestlemania vs a part-timer every year. I want to see Styles, Owens, Zayn, or hell even Braun close a Mania sometime.

I stopped watching after G1 but have only slightly kept up on the WTL and whatever WK12 promos they're doing, but yeah goto is such a fizzle.

I think they're on a 'record-breaking' thing right now so unfortunately we'll probably see roman main event again for the 4th time or whatever :|

best non-gimmick nxt match I seen recently. As good, if not even better, than zayn/nakamura.

Cole has to be hurting after that chair spot though...
He seems to be taking far more extreme bumps in NXT than when he was in ROH

i wish i bought wwe stock when i was looking at it early last year

USA deal ends soon i think, if they got someone like fox that would double their pay

Ronda is a huge draw, and the quality of everything is going up

that rumble was great (also wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than last years disappointment)

That men's rumble tonight was one of the three best rumbles ever. Nakamura winning by itself would've been cool but the whole match was structured really well and it was entertaining as hell from beginning to end. Easily the best rumble since I got back into wrestling in 2011.

The women's rumble was cool too but a little more uneven. I think it went about as well as it could have went considering half of the entrants were either bad or rusty wrestlers. Surprised at no Nikki Cross/Peyton Royce though.

Overall probably the most fun I've had watching a main roster WWE show since Wrestlemania 30 tbh

I was super excited for the women's match but had really low expectations and they surpassed it. We kept trying to do the math on who'd actually be in minus the champs and figured that there werent even enough even if they had all the nxt women come up. The ring rust was super apparent, but since i had calculated that in my excitedness i also enjoyed it lol.
