Since the fed has this big sold out show in Yokohama, Japan. Does anyone think they will tweak the product or just give 'em the same stuff we in the states get.

I'm no Purosmark but I have seen a few Japanese matches, they seem to work a different type of match. Of course not all Japanese matches are the same, but you know what I'm trying to say, it seems more intense but yet old-school. The crowd seems to be more educated, like if a guy is using psychology and targeting a leg the whole match, the Japanese audience seems to pick up on it, where as most WWF fans are to busy yelling for "puppies". They also seem to pull finishes out of nowhere, just a secondary one. Which seems to make thier main finisher alot more affective and cool when they do whip it out. (Sort of like if Austin used the million-dollar dream more than the stunner)

So are they gonna feed our Asian brethren Benoit-Tajri or do they get Godfather-Gunn.

I would assume that the WWF is gonna give them everything we're tired of. I figure the Japanese audience would be more appreciative of that stuff since they dont get to see it as often as we do.

For instance, I'm sure they'll see every finisher, hear every catch phrase, and see everyone's little comedy spots in every match. I think they'll be drowning in Sports Entertainment.

As far as the more workrate/psychology based style they're used to, I'm sure they'll also get to see a lot of the good workers in watches we dont get to see very often.

Then again, that's a lot of ISH to pile into one show, so what do I know.

Sorry about that. When rap stations play the un edited versions of songs that contain profanity, they edit out the bad words themselves by playing them backwards. I guess they do that because playing the offensive word backwards probably sounds better that a BEEEEEP noise or a split second of silence.

Anywho, when they edit the word "shit" like that, it comes out sonding like "ISH".

You know those damn tickets were too expensive (200 bucks) and they were sold out too fast. I hate it when they keep saying the show is in Tokyo when it in Yokohama. About 30 minutes away but still, thats like calling Oakland San Fransico. At least I got the chance to see Beniot for free a month ago. Maybe I will run into a few of the guys in Ropponggi (I always see wrestlers there), but the schedule is so tight they might not leave whatever hotel they are in.

Any chance of the WWF having a few legendary Japanese wrestlers on the Yokohama card? That'd be cool. Maybe they could even do a little cross-promotional WWF vs. Japan card at some point like WCW did with Starrcade.

Only problem I see with that is that Vince would naturally be inclined to have the WWF come away with the final victory.
