    Choshu's WJ Pro Debut card announced

    This is the line-up for the March 1st WJ Pro debut show. The card looks pretty bad, and it is actually running AGAINST the NOAH Misawa vs Kobashi GHC title match. Bah.

    Anyway, here it is:

    - Riki Choshu vs. Gen'ichiro Tenryu
    - Hiroshi Hase & Kensuke Sasaki vs. Don Frye & Mr. X
    - Shiro Koshinaka vs. Atsushi Onita
    - Road Warriors vs. Todd & Mike "The Crushers" (yeah, this one really sounds like a classic)
    - Yoshiaki Yatsu vs. Yoji Anjoh
    - Tomohiro Ishii vs. Takashi Uwano
    - Masahiko Kochi vs. Tomoaki Honma

    yup...

    Nikkan Sports says "Mike Shane & Todd Shane."

    The Shane Twins, former NWA World Tag champs?

    How old is Yatsu now anyway? He's one of my all time favourites, and I'm sort of looking forward to his match with Anjoh, but I get the feeling that he's like 50-something now.

    WJ is like an old folks' promotion or something.

    Yeah, Ron Niemi from NWA Florida & IPW Hardcore announced about a month ago that the former NWA Florida, IPW, and NWA World Tag Team Champions The Shane Twins, Mike & Todd were signed to compete for WJ Pro

    Doesn't look like much of a good card to me. WJ will probably have a better gate than the NOAH show though just because it is its first show. After that... (sounds of a bomb dropping, you get the idea )
    You love me, you love me not, but you definately respect me!!!!

    Choshu has had how many months to come up with something and this is the best he could do? Ego's run amok.

    The Koshinaka vs. Onita match will be a garbage death match.

    Kenzo Suzuki will also supposedly be competing, no word against whom, though. This promotion looks more like 70's All-Japan style brawling.

    I read over at puroresufan.com that the show was just down right bad. Stuart said the crowd was quiet and didn't react much. Reports said that the Road Warriors looked awful. So basically I can see this promotion not doing to good. But knowing me I'll get the tape once it comes out so I can see how bad it is.

    Tenryu jobbed in UNDER TEN MINUTES?!?!?!

    My lord, what is Choshu thinking...the Death Match sounds awful too, Koshinaka is really bad now. Maybe Omori\Suzuki and Yatsu\Anjoh were decent, but overall the show sounds really poor.

    There's no question that it was terrible
    On such a big night for Puroresu in general, most of it was a let-down, minus the NOAH card, which I hear was a tremendous success
