Oh man, that totally f**ks up my holiday travel plans. How the hell am I gonna be in Syracuse for Christmas, Philly for ROH, NYC for my brother's birthday (12.28) and Back to Boston for New Year's. Man...
After seeing Kojima's work in MLW, I'm not sure if he'll bring his "A Game" to the United States. If he is that could be a stiff-tacular match. I'm not high on Homicide but in that style, he can bring the right stuff that Kojima can turn into a must-see match.
Eh, of all the promotions in Japan, All Japan is probably the least interesting. How is that a supershow?
Kojima is probably the most talented heavyweight they have, but I find him to be vastly overrated. Who else are they going to bring in? Kendo Kashin is deathly dull, Kaz Hayashi has been extremely lazy this year, Muto hasn't had a good match for ages and Arashi is appalling. At least Honma and Miyamoto are coming, but they'll need good opponents. There was no mention of Kawada coming over in the press release, so there goes my reason to attend the event.
I would have preferred a ROH-NOAH 'supershow'. There are much more possibilities with that. I guess Muto is more desperate than Misawa.
So, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase was on TSN's Off The Record today. He was part of a 4-person panel that included an NHLer and they discussed the lock-out and other topics. DiBiase came off really well. Smart guy.
