REEEEEEEEEE GET OUT
Does the yakuza really run NJPW?
>The Dynamite Kid states in his autobiography that Antonio Inoki was once slapped around by a Yakuza member backstage. Inoki, realising who was doing the slapping, thanked him for the honor.
>In 2012, Pro Wrestling NOAH was embroiled in a scandal when it was revealed that the Yakuza strong-armed people into attending NOAH shows when attendances were falling.
If they were ever revealed to had a hand in NJPW, it could lead to shutting down the company.
All meme-ry aside, was Cena-Punk the definitive feud of Cena's career and the "Reality Era" or w/e they wanna call it? Cena-Orton was always pretty bland an the matches were never memorable, I guess you can argue Cena-Edge but the Punk matches were better, and so were the promos imo.

1993 WWF is such an awesome and underrated year.
>Lawler vs the Hart Family
>Doink the Clown
>Bam Bam Bigelow
>Shawn vs. Marty
>1-2-3 Kid vs. Razor Ramon
>Flair vs. Perfect, Loser Leaves Town
>Debut of Raw
>Raw in the Manhattan Center (BASED)
>Randy Savage on commentary
No it sucked.
WWE business collapsed in 1992. They put the title on Bret, then when business was down they put it on Hogan out of desperation. Then they forcepushed Lex Luger out of nowhere and botched it completely. Throughout all this they were pushing an immobile shitter, Yokozuna, as the top heel with a Japanese menace gimmick that was 30 years out of date.
In 24 years time I wonder what excuses will present day 10 year olds come up with to call 2017 an awesome and underrated year.
Remember when WWE marks tried to say this match was better than Okada/Omega I?
itt: dimes personified
No eihän nää kusipäät ymmärrä mitää perkele mitä pitäs tehä
So this match will not have a clean finish obviously right?
>Make Roman the face of the company
>Raw loses 1/3 its viewers
>House show numbers are in the toilet
>WWE can barely turn a profit, even with record high revenue
But hey, at least he worked the smarks, right?
is she a draw?

I'm 35 so do the math about how old is was because I sure as fuck can't remember, but I don't remember any kids at school who liked bret Hart at all. I'm in the greater Toronto area so maybe it was different out west where men are men and cows are nervous, but they're too busy snorting meth and drinking gas out there to buy merch or donate dimes so they don't count.

Nia Jax is officially /ourgirl/
I'll start. I really like Chase Owens and think he's a good addition to the Bullet Club. He has decent charisma, is a solid (if unspectacular) wrestler, and his finisher is pretty based.
Another would be WWF Dino Bravo when he was gassed the fuck up. I doubt most of the board even really knows of him, but I know they wouldn't have liked his matches.
He got shot in the head in his living room by the mafia because of some shit going on with the cigarette smuggling he was involved in.
I don't know what that is, I just know him from New Japan as part of the Bullet Club. He seems to usually be the job guy in multiman tags if they are losing.
