He was only released earlier this year. Had to wait out those 90 days.

In other words, yes. I love that his re-debut will be jobbing out to AJ Styles.

Tanahashi & Shibata teaming together all tour is just gross. There's been a lot of chatter that Shibata/Nakamura will be working to a rematch at WK, which makes a lot of sense. I was shocked to see the IC Title match get put on Power Struggle.

And to think the only hatchet burying we thought would ever happen with them would be into someone's back

In a world where so infrequently can nice things be had, it feels foreign when it happens.

I'd floated the idea a little while ago that Jarrett brings in his first Global Force signing to face Yoshitatsu at Wrestle Kingdom. This teaser opens that door wide. I'm eyeing Samoa Joe, who finished up with TNA at Bound For Glory.

Hirooki Goto challenging Tomohiro Ishii for the NEVER Openweight Championship and Jushin Thunder Liger going after Chase Owens' NWA Jr. title have both been made official for Power Struggle. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Liger pick up the gold, as he's MASSIVELY over in America.

Good for them, but man, it is so gross that it was an all-gaijin final.

... and in Canada, too.

GFW is hiring English-language commentators, who presumably would be in line for the gig when Global Force starts running shows of their own. Will be interesting to see who they get.
