Former World Wonder Ring STARDOM #wrestling star, Kagetsu—member, then leader of Oedo Tai during one of the stable's most fondly remembered periods—has transitioned!
His new name is Yu Ishino, and I couldn't be happier for him. He reportedly returned to his home town of Osaka to further trans rights and advocacy, because kings rule. 👑💪 (It's in the job description, after all.)
Why have the smarks never really taken to calling it "Shin Nihon"? You'd think the overlap between "inquisitive fanboys", "weebs", "pedantic fucks", and "wrestling fans" would look like a kindergartner's poorly proportioned daisy
One of my very favorite things about Dark is that it really is a B- or C-show. It's easier to do direct crowd work with the smaller audience; Taz and Excalibur get to pop each other on commentary without other folks in the booth, without cracking wise to a live TV audience; Brian Pillman Jr. can give a misogynist promo that actually makes him pretty heel, and . . .
There's no upside to that last one, actually.
