Did you put your clock back a week?

My main takeaway from that is that Marty has a brother called Geno. Geno Jannetty.

Get some coin out of them too! Vice Canada make it don't they? Try and blag a holiday over there out of it. 

Pillman's mam (Mary) was Welsh btw. Reckon there's room for us on that plane?

So, they got in touch with me around August, had a phone call with the producers with them basically picking my brain about who the best people are to talk to, the best way to tell the story, stuff like that. They didn't ask me to be on, at least not yet.

I assume you just pointed them to the Graham family as "its always his idea"

In one of the more unexpected news announcements doing the rounds a few places are reporting that Meiko Satomura is relocating to the UK and working as a trainer/wrestler for NXT UK. 

 

I'm not aware of the details (language barrier), but she seems to have been been working with Chigusa recently. I surmised it was either a relaunch of GAEA or Marvelous. A couple of videos at the bottom of this page, though admittedly they are from earlier in the year. Her own Sendai Girls promotion seems to do little if anything these days:

Everyone reporting it is quoting from the same Google Translate of the same Tokyo Sports article, so I think there's a risk of some poor machine translation, or missed nuance going on there.

If she has signed, she was the main name being attached to NXT Japan - it could be that they want her working in an existing Performance Centre to teach her the ropes of how they want the eventual Japanese one (if such a thing ever comes to fruition) to operate.

I very strongly suspect that it's a bit of a non-story, though.

This seems to make the most sense. It's not like an awful lot is happening with NXT UK right now, but NXT Japan was absolutely going to happen before COVID nipped it in the bud, and I suppose they want to give it another shot.  Heard Daisuke Sekimoto and Jiro Kuroshio's names in the discussion when the rumors started to brew and I guess Kairi's going to play a role there as well now. It's dodgy enough, but no more so than it was ten or twelve months ago when the word started going around

Just casting my mind back to the GAEA girls documentary. Chigusa & by proxy Satomura, pretty much beasting trainees. That'd go down well today wouldn't it (rhetorical question).

I know people who have trained with Satomura far more recently, and say that while it wasn't exactly easy, it couldn't have been further removed from GAEA Girls. I've seen it suggested that the filmmaker put them up to being more aggressive than they ordinarily would be for effect - I can't remember if Satomura herself alluded to that, but it's someone who has worked with her that told me. Can't speak for Big Chig, though!
