Ha! From all accounts, two top performers walked off the flagship show last night. They felt the night's booking, and the plans after, didn't respect the work they put in to elevate their titles.

Workers walking off the job due to poor treatment ALWAYS makes me smile. 💕

Of course, I can't think of Oedo Tai without thinking of Hana Kimura and being crushed.

All over again, every time. I'll never forgive the producers of Terrace House, and I may never forgive the Japanese people.

She'll be remembered as long as I live. 🌸

Show thread

Former World Wonder Ring STARDOM star, Kagetsu—member, then leader of Oedo Tai during one of the stable's most fondly remembered periods—has transitioned! :heart_trans:

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.)

Holy SHIT. was fucking 🔥 tonight!

Next week looks even better somehow, and I WILL BE THERE, LIVE

It's Wednesday. You know what that means.

starts in a few! I'll be chatting in the r/SC Discord (a well-moderated, friendly place): discord.gg/E58d5t6ucS

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

As amazing as things are over at right now, I still miss Kenny Omega.

My biggest hope for Forbidden Door is that Okada mains and goes over, and in true Shin Nihon style, "Devil's Sky" hits and Kenny walks down to challenge the Rainmaker at the next event. *wistful sigh*

I don't think I'll live-toot tonight, but I'll be talking about it in the r/SquaredCircle Discord!

Let's watch some ! 😀

AEW: Dark 

Y'know, I still really love Diamanté; she's a strong, exciting performer and not THAT terrible a promo or pre-tape. She even worked decently with Ivelisse 😝

AEW: Dark 

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.

Boost if you know, or think you can guess, why there's a move called a Pelé kick.

AEW Rampage 

Samoa Joe will be one of my favorite wrestlers pmuch always

I was lucky enough to see Swerve at WrestleCircus many times.

He's still every bit as exciting to watch. Every damn time. (I miss the Chaka Khan, tho)
