    On another forum people are saying the mystery wrestler is Oka - the young lion.

    I love how they embrace all of this stuff! Liger should do something at the World Cup!

    I think the most irritating thing about the whole saga is how Rev-Pro have completely ignored any questions about the whole thing. Its not like they have said 'this is why and we 'get' why people would feel a little cheated' they literally just IGNORE questions from the fans they are (apparently) trying to draw to their product. From a business perspective it is extremely shoddy. I don't even mean apologise just give people a bit of respect and be professional in these things. It disappoints me because Rev-Pro have really let themselves down with this display. Especially as a promotion which has a fairly good reputation, it is this type of shit that makes people think a promotion isn't professional or serious about building their brand. I want Rev-Pro to succeed but this isn't the way you go about interacting with potential new fans (or not interact in this case). If it was any other type of business it wouldn't be acceptable. If a customer queries the product they are getting the expectation should be that the company explains the position and/or offers an apology if things aren't as they were sold. That is a reasonable way of conducting business. Simply going 'la la la la la' *fingers in ears* may in the short term be a strategy but people don't forget when they feel cheated. On the plus side I am looking forward to the main event and Nagata match. Tiger Mask will be fun as I haven't seen that character live. I will give the Rev Pro guys a go and see what they can do, no harm in that I guess.

    You can hardly compare David Starr to Rey Mysterio to be fair. Mysterio is a HUGE name across the world, not some relative no-name indy wrestler from a small part of the US.

    Again I will state the point, I bought tickets on the basis it was a NJPW show not Global Wars. I am much happier now but RPW's issues are theirs not anyone elses. I don't believe we should just be grateful. If you bring a brand you better do it right. 'At least we have these shows in the UK' is all well and good but come on do it right! I am sure they will be good shows but lets not blindly defend a company which has been completely unprofessional in its approach to the situation. A simple tweet in response isn't that difficult. I don't mind people from RPW and other companies being on the shows as long as its sticking to one match or maybe two exhibition type matches where they get their faces in front of the audience. Just looking on twitter I am not the only one that was miffed at how these shows came about to have so many GW type bouts. I 'took the time' to see what I was 'getting'. They put tweets out clearly indicating that these would be pure NJPW shows and not Global Wars type events. I don't research The Foo Fighters when I want to see Metallica because I don't expect to turn up to get half a show of both! Not taking an issue with you at all. I have had my share of that shit on here over the years. I just don't believe in defending poor showings from people/companies.

    I was furious after the initial announcements for the MK show vs the Manchester card. Not just a little irritated but furious! On reflection though I am not as pissed as I was about the card though I am a little miffed as to why Manchester get the additional match... Umino vs ??? - I suspect we will get Liger here though it may well end up being a indy talent from the UK. Liger would be awesome as I have always wanted to see him live. I doubt Tanahashi is going to be on the shows or they would have announced in advance so that would be my ideal second option. Yujiro & Ishimori v Aussie Open - I don't know these guys. Ishimori is brilliant and Yujiro is well, Yujiro. Want to see this purely for Ishimori though he should have been put against Ospreay in a singles. Taichi, Desperado & Iizuka v Switchblade, Yano & Gedo - Nice six man which is to be expected and actually similar to many of the other non-big-events that NJPW put together. Sticking all of those I am less interested in into one match isn't a bad thing. Tiger Mask Vs. David Starr - WhoAreYa! Seeing Tiger Mask live will be fun, I have wanted to catch him wrestling. I don't know this David Starr. Walter Vs. Yuji Nagata - Not big on indy companies so not sure about Walter but I hear he is fairly decent. Nagata is a legend so should be decent. Chris Brookes Vs. Yoshi Hashi - I hear very mixed reviews about Brookes with a lot of people saying he is the shits. Kanemaru Vs. Will Ospreay - Will be an okay match though Ospreay should really be against someone with a lot more 'wow' than Kanemaru. Minoru Suzuki and Zack Sabre Jr(c) Vs Tomohiro Ishii and Kazuchika Okada for the British Tag Team Titles - If they don't phone it in it should be a great match. Just worrying that this is purely there as a backdrop to the main event the following night. I am particularly disappointed at the total unprofessionalism from RPW though with no responses to any messages/emails that have been sent by myself and other people I know about the disappointing state of N1. Not a good look for the company and not endearing them to a larger audience.

    So basically the MK fans are fucked. They get a semi decent main event that will end in Ishii getting pinned by Suzuki. Then Manchester get two HUGE matches (on paper). I am furious. Lop-sided booking at its worst. Whoever booked this needs firing.

    Oh good ol Under-faker and Legion of Doom aka. Ricky Knight at the local shows! I look back with good memories!

    The promotion for it indicated it was an actual NJPW tour though. 'Strong Style Evolved' kinda gave that impression. They have even said in twitter posts that this is NOT a Rev-Pro/NJPW tour but may have some RPW talent on them. I may be wrong but the whole way it was promoted gave us a wrong impression.

    I think the main point for Westlondonmist (I might be wrong) is that the UK shows seem to be lacking of any real significance and the fact they can't be bothered to get the main players over for the event isn't going to endear some sections of the paying audience. The UK is the WWEs second biggest market outside of the US (or was?) why they wouldn't go 'all out' for these shows, nobody knows. I am hoping they announce Tanahashi in the final slot just to appease fans for not having Ibushi, Omega, Bucks, Naito etc.
