New-Ring-Road

March 27th - Not a great photo, but the light was terrible as I headed home. This curious matt-brown box with a bright white light on top puzzles many folk heading east towards Chuckery on the New Ring Road in Walsall, just by Queen Mary’s School. It’s an environmental monitoring pod which takes climatic and and air quality measurements, and logs them. It features a host of sensors - the white light is a particulate analyser, shining light through the air and measuring the floating contaminants. There will be wind, temperature, humidity, and various chemical sensors humming away in what is actually a vehicle trailer. The triangular cowl on the front is covering the towing hitch.

This is a fairly expensive piece of kit, being used to tell us what anyone in Walsall already knows; the air quality here is terrible - particularly next to a badly designed junction where traffic is often static.

No shit, Sherlock.

Road to Wrestling Dontaku Night 9 - 5/1/2016; More on Kamaitachi in ROH; Admin Note

*** ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE *** - I am being called out of town at my shoot job, so the Wrestling Dontaku results and notes will be up late on Tuesday. Also, I am attending the Global Wars PPV so that post will be late too more than likely.

Strong Style Story Podcast Episode 8 NOW LIVE!

The final Road to Wrestling Dontaku spot show happened today, at Oita Event Hall.  Ricochet, Matt Sydal and Will Ospreay joined the lineups today, and all were on the winning sides in their matches. Results:

  • Teruaki Kanemitsu TLD Hirai Kawato  (10:00)
  • Ricochet [FREE], Matt Sydal [ROH] & Ryusuke Taguchi d. Rocky Romero, Trent Baretta & Gedo [CHAOS] (Sydal > Gedo, Air Sydal, 9:20)
  • Kazushi Sakuraba & YOSHI-HASHI [CHAOS] d. Yoshitatsu & Captain New Japan (YOSHI-HASHI > Captain, Butterfly Lock, 10:05)
  • Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi, Jushin Thunder Liger & Tiger Mask IV d. Katsuyori Shibata, KUSHIDA, Jay White & David Finlay Jr. (Nagata > White, backdrop hold, 10:51)
  • Kenny Omega, Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa & Yujiro Takahashi [Bullet Club] d. Hiroshi Tanahashi, Michael Elgin, Togi Makabe, Tomoaki Honma & Juice Robinson (Omega > Robinson, running knee, 16:32)
  • Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, Hirooki Goto & Will Ospreay [CHAOS] d. Tetsuya Naito, SANADA, EVIL & BUSHI [Los Ingobernables] (Ishii > BUSHI, Vertical Drop Brainbuster, 17:02)

Kamaitachi debuted last night in Ring of Honor, in a losing effort against ACH, but was said from reports to be a great match. According to Dave Meltzer and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Kamaitachi (Hiromu Takahashi) is indeed done in CMLL, and has relocated to somewhere in the northeastern USA, and will be an ROH regular for the time being. So there is every possibility he still could be part of the Global Wars/War of the Worlds scheme, and indeed an outside chance of working Best of the Super Juniors.

Next up is Wrestling Dontaku, this Tuesday 5/3/2016 from Fukuoka Convention Center, which will be live on NJPWWorld. Lineup:

February 13th - I see the new offices for Walsall Housing Group - the hived-off housing association that owns almost all of Walsall Council’s former social housing stock - are nearly finished. This inelegant, six and a half million pound edifice has undergone a protracted construction; the glass units forming the frontage were faulty and fogged up soon after placement, the manufacture being faulty. It’s notable that some panels are still cloudy. This ill conceived building seems to be fully lit at night, presumably at no small expense, and is completely devoid of public transport support. This could be considered an oversight considering WHG’s tenant profile.

That money would have built a lot of decent homes.

‘Missing Link’ road project placed on the political agenda

A massive new road from the Ring Road at Greensborough to EastLink looks set to become Melbourne’s next big transport project, with Treasurer Tim Pallas declaring it “innately” makes sense.

Adding to Victoria’s already crowded infrastructure agenda, Mr Pallas revealed the state’s independent major projects adviser, Infrastructure Victoria, would be delivering a verdict on the “North East Link” proposal by the end of the year.

“If you look at the way that most modern cities operate, this idea of an outer suburban high capacity freeway network I think has a lot of merit to it,” he told The Melbourne Press Club. “Innately, I think there is some sense in it.”

The project – often referred to as the “missing link” – has been the RACV’s top transport priority for years. The roads lobby group argues completing the Metropolitan Ring Road would dramatically cut congestion and connect freight centres around Dandenong with the Hume Highway.

  • IWGP Intercontinental Championship: Kenny Omega [Bullet Club] © d. Michael Elgin (One Winged Angel, 22:56)
    - Omega succeeds his 1st defense

Hiroshi Tanahashi challenged Omega post-match, and got attacked for his troubles. Naito taunted Ishii some more as well.

Yesterday, Ring of Honor announced another matchup for Global Wars on 5/8/2016 from Chicago Ridge, IL. This time, in a rematch from last year’s War of the Worlds event from Philadelphia, PA, the IWGP Heavyweight Champion Tetsuya Naito will face reDRagon’s Kyle O'Reilly in a non-title match. Here’s the updated card:

  • Women of Honor Pre-Show Match: Kelly Klein v. Crazy Mary Dobson

While we await the announcements of whom will be competing in the upcoming Best of the Super Juniors XXIII tournament, we know the names of two who won’t be. KUSHIDA in his podcast yesterday said Kamaitachi will not be taking part. Kamaitachi has not been on CMLL cards of late, and indeed is said to be in the USA taking indie bookings right now. Meanwhile, CaraLucha has announced former NJPW excursionee Mascara Dorada will be taking part in their event on 5/21/2016, the start date of BOSJXXIII, so he’s out. I expect the lineups to be announced pretty soon, however.

Road to Wrestling Dontaku Night 8 - 4/28/2016; Kamaitachi in ROH on 4/30/2016 + Speculation

Strong Style Story Podcast Episode 8 NOW LIVE!

Road to Wrestling Dontaku continued today, from Sendai City Sports Park Sun Arena:

  • Tiger Mask IV d. Hirai Kawato (Chickenwing Facelock, 6:42)
  • Jay White d. Teruaki Kanemitsu (High-Angle Boston Crab, 10:07)
  • YOSHI-HASHI, Rocky Romero & Trent Baretta [CHAOS] d. Yoshitatsu, Captain New Japan & Ryusuke Taguchi (YOSHI-HASHI > Captain, Butterfly Lock, 12:21)
  • Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi & Jushin Thunder Liger d. Katsuyori Shibata, KUSHIDA & David Finlay Jr. (Nagata > Finlay, backdrop hold, 11:20)
  • Kenny Omega, Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga, Tanga Loa & Yujiro Takahashi [Bullet Club] d. Hiroshi Tanahashi, Michael Elgin, Togi Makabe, Tomoaki Honma & Juice Robinson (Omega > Robinson, One Winged Angel, 15:26)
  • Tetsuya Naito, SANADA, EVIL & BUSHI [Los Ingobernables] d. Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, Hirooki Goto & Gedo [CHAOS] (SANADA > Gedo, Skull End, 18:24)

Here’s a piece of news I didn’t see coming: Kamaitachi will be debuting in Ring of Honor this Saturday 4/30/2016 at the Civic Center in West Warwick, RI, as part of their Conquest Tour. Apparently, he’s replacing Roderick Strong, who had a personal matter come up, in a match vs. ACH. As mentioned a few times, Kamaitachi has not been booked in CMLL recently, and it was just announced he will not be part of Best of the Super Juniors either.

ROH has been wanting to work with CMLL for a while, as they are both mutual partners with NJPW. It’s been unknown for a while if CMLL was even aware of ROH or their interest. Meanwhile, on Kamaitachi’s end, the most recent tweet on his account read “ Gracias!México!! Hasta luego!México!!” along with a group pic outside of a residence, featuring Raijin & Fujin among others. 

So it’s entirely possible Kamaitachi is done in Mexico, at last. It’s also possible Kamaitachi may be appearing during the Global Wars/War of the Worlds shows and the “Kamaitachi won’t be in BOSJ” is smokescreen - remember, he wasn’t announced as being part of Fantasticamania either. Stay tuned.

The final spot show for Road to Wrestling Dontaku isn’t until Sunday 5/1/2016 - remember, tomorrow was supposed to be Wrestling Dontaku. Oita, where Sunday’s show is taking place, was also affected by the earthquakes, but evidently not enough to cancel the show at Oita Event Hall. Ricochet, Matt Sydal and Will Ospreay are booked for this show as well, as they were meant to be at Hinokuni too. Card:

  • Teruaki Kanemitsu v. Hirai Kawato
  • Richochet [FREE], Matt Sydal [ROH] & Ryusuke Taguchi v. Rocky Romero, Trent Baretta & Gedo [CHAOS]
  • Yoshitatsu & Captain New Japan v. Kazushi Sakuraba & YOSHI-HASHI [CHAOS]

Road to Wrestling Dontaku Night 3 - 4/20/2016; Match Added to Global Wars; This Week’s NJPW on AXS

Night 3 of Road to Wrestling Dontaku, from Nagano Saku City General Gymnasium, is in the books. Results:

  • Yoshitatsu & Captain New Japan d. Ryusuke Taguchi & Teraki Kanemitsu (Yoshitatsu > Kanemitsu, Pedigree, 8:42)
  • Jushin Thunder Liger & Tiger Mask IV d. KUSHIDA & David Finlay Jr. (Tiger > Finlay, reverse double armbar, 9:02)

Only real match of note is TenKoji getting a win, in their final match before they (and Toru Yano) head to Pro Wrestling NOAH for the Global Tag League from 4/21/2016 - 5/4/2016.

Another match has been announced for the Global Wars ROH/NJPW PPV on 5/8/2016 in Chicago. The Addiction (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) are scheduled to face off against Cheeseburger and his unlikely mentor, Jushin Thunder Liger. They’ve had an angle since last year’s War of the Worlds cycle, where Liger taught Cheeseburger the Shotei, and lo and behold it’s gotten Cheeseburger over, in both the USA and in Japan - his shirts at the Honor Rising shows sold out, despite not being on the tour, after a well-received run in the pre-show New Japan Rumble at Wrestle Kingdom 10.

This week’s NJPW on AXS episode (Friday night at 9pm EDT/8pm CDT) concludes the cycle of shows from Dominion on 7/5/2015 from Osaka-Jo Hall. In this episode, Bullet Club’s AJ Styles defends the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada. Great match. Jim Ross and Josh Barnett are your hosts. This is the last episode on the schedule for now, but surely that won’t remain for long. AXS TV also shows live MMA fights, as well as concerts at times, and we are heading into festival season (Coachella’s first weekend just happened) so some pre-empting may be inevitable.

The next show is on Saturday, from Tokyo Korakuen Hall, and will be shown live on NJPWWorld. The NEVER Openweight 6-Man belts will be defended here, and the first of two Elimination matches will happen as well.
