Episode 116: New Japan & Big Japan in Golden Week

Was it a Golden Week for New Japan and Big Japan? In this new epiosde the Eastern Lariat crew debates about the pros and cons of a very long Wrestling Dontaku tour, outstanding performances and flaws in New Japan’s booking, foreigners in New Japan and the promotion being between needing and having. When previewing the Best of the Super Junior STRIGGA & Dylan talk about Will Ospreay’s weird 2019 and they also give a preview and predictions for the tournament as well as a short Dominion preview. When switching over to Big Japan the main talking point is the big success of Endless Survivor on one side and this success being built on sand on the other. There’s Okabayashi, there’s Sekimoto, but who else?
