They barely have enough to go 2 nights, even then the title has to be main event both nights. 3 nights, Jesus, you don't even have the IC anymore to take up 1 night. 

Ospreay defending his World Title on one show, Shingo on another and then a Unification match on night three?

Doubt I'm going to keep my subscription going that long, to be honest. All the interesting NJPW stuff seems to be happening in other companies. Nothing they are doing themselves is interesting to me at all.

Even the story of Ospreay declaring that he's still Champion, which is an angle that I've always enjoyed, is leaving me cold. Possibly because I'm not too fussed about either Ospreay or Shingo.

I've watched one show in a month, and even that was just to see the new Young Lions. NJPW desperately needs a major angle to shake things up.

They seem to have no appetite for the other native talent, nor do the others want to move. Can’t remember the podcast I got this from, but they see how others work as different from then, there’s apparently a difference in how dojo’s teach how to hit the ropes that they see as wrong if done different. Culturally they just don’t want otter Japanese talent if they can avoid it

Yeah. The likes of Okada had to retrain at the NJ Dojo to be considered one of theirs.

KENTA, Ishii, Taichi, Sanada, BUSHI, Honma have all had to deal with the outsider stink that handicap them compared to those homegrown.
