I would like to add a little more to this topic and the position the companies are in NOAH seems to be very anti gaijin and I think that is hurting them at the moment. I did read an interview with Davey Raichards saying it felt to him that people didn't want him to be there While for other interviews with gaijins working in NJPW they have been highly comprementry about the staff there and the back room team everybody is in this together Its probably one of the reasons that NJPW is back at the top gain Also the streaming and youtube service NJPW is very helpful to internet fans
The other thing I might help is that the lower companies all seem to be in this together I do remember watching a BJPW/DDT/M-PRO card a special New Years one You will find that the companies at the moment will swap their top stars to help each other out I'm see Marifuji in DDT and I've seen NJPW using DDT wrestlers
It's just SUCH a shame that The Big Show has jobbed to almost everybody in the fed. It's a HUGE wasted opportunity. I've heard in a wrestling magazine that the WWE's booking of The Big Show was picked as the worst use of a giant ever.
