The purchase of Ring of Honor by Sinclair Broadcast Group will be analyzed, particularly in how it will effect any potential restart of a work agreement between TNA and ROH. In the middle of New Japan's upcoming Osaka show is a particularly historic tag title match. I'll let you in on the what, who, and why of this tag match on Wednesday. K-1's current heavyweight kickboxing champion Kyotaro is set to make his pro wrestling debut at All Japan's upcoming Sumo Hall show. He is the second K-1 fighter behind Yuichiro Nagashima. I will go over the significance of both men going to pro wrestling as well as the possibility that more Japanese kickboxers and MMA fighters will turn to pro wrestling in Japan in the future. There appears to have been an altercation between All Japan wrestlers Yoshikazu Taru (TARU) and Nobukazu Hirai that has left Hirai in the hospital. Is it real or a work? I'll go over the situation, give my thoughts on if it's legit and what it may mean for the future of one of my favorite wrestling stables, the Voodoo Murderers. Manabu Nakanishi was injured this past weekend during a tag match on a New Japan card, but dodged a major bullet despite the injury. As for how he dodged a bullet (without giving too much away), let's just say that he didn't end up the way Misawa did. And with Slammiversary this coming weekend, you'll get my picks for the show and another rant on the show's poster.
