Lord Tensai misted John Cena and it felt fucking HUGE at the time. LORD TENSAI.

Before this weeks Braun segment you never felt that.

They'll build a little heat just to put someone related to the actual money feud over instead of actually building him.

The last thing any future star needs is a feud with Bray. They need more big dudes.

He should try to grow like 3 inches and 10lbs of muscle before he goes to the main roster. Instantly the future.

Such an awful situation, and all for a meaningless spot - hopefully it'll wake some other wrestlers up (Kotoge, ffs) and they cut that shit out. It's not necessary.

Ishii thankfully already switched to doing the Goto-style headbutts, where he connects with the collarbone/neck rather than the head.

I think that he needs to hit the gym for definition of muscles more than gaining weight. What I hope is that they get him a mouthpiece (Heyman?) and never let him speak. Keep the mystery vibe intact.

I'm not really sold on Aleister Black yet.

Almas kind of carried him in his Takeover match and yesterday he had a 1 move squash match.

Ember Moon should really take note of how his character doesn't suddenly change from his ring entrance to his match though.

Ishii needs to change his ways now. Seriously. Even if he's changed styles, I don't think any headbutts are healthy for him.

I always assumed it was because it's Japan and that's the culture.

If you can do a top rope dragon suplex I don't think they have any banned moves.

Exactly that. With the promotion led by the style Tanahashi laid out for so many years, guys like Ishii and Shibata kicking the shit out of each other really stood out, for better or worse.

I'm not usually in the habit of questioning particularly dangerous workers in a dangerous profession. It's a crazy world and Shibata really embraced his persona. If he's in too rough a shape, hopefully they can save him from himself.

It's kind of interesting that Bryan mentions in his book that he was thinking about quitting wrestling along with a bunch of other people after the Benoit murders, but he didn't and in fact he kept doing the diving headbutt.

Okada on Shibata

Today, as soon as questions about Shibata came up, Okada - who did not appear for a post-match interview after the Ryogoku event - choked up and said: "I think Shibata is a ridiculously earnest person. That's why if we were to make another promise, I believe he would try to uphold it. 'Let's fight again' is the promise I'm making here today, so the message I want to send [to Shibata] is: 'Please keep that promise.'"

If you give him to Heyman, you run the risk of a bray situation. Black is a crowd favourite with his gimmick. Prints money

There was an angle in All Japan where Misawa pretended to get a broken neck injury during a huge tournament, and everyone assumed it was real even though it wasn't, sooooooo
