I couldn't sleep so I saw the late night replay of NJPW on AXS at 3am.

Barnett after Red Dragons hit the Chasing The Dragon
JR, that's gotta be the best heroin euphemism in pro wrestling history.
If Heenan was in his 30s and didn't give a fuck he would have said that. I'm not huge on Barnett as a commentator (love him in MMA, though) But that was fantastic.

That would be cool.

And Buff could make extra money while over there by banging lonely old Japanese broads.

Colby wrestling makes me feel old since I remember when Corino had him doing spots as a kindergartener.

Wonder how long before Omega turns up in WWE, or more than likely NXT. NJPW is very ECWesque as soon as one of a group of stars leave (Finn, Nakamura, Gallows and Anderson) they make new stars.

He will probably go by next year. But he was on that piece Vice did on the Young Bucks and Colt Cabana about making good money outside of WWE backing them up for not wanting to go.

They really should tour more. Japan is small, they could do good business in America now that they have a cable show. They would do better than TNA.
