This promotion is mentioned a lot in the Non-WWE/TNA thread. Does it have a weekly show? Does it have PPVs? Who is it aimed at? Made for adults? Where does one watch it? Are subtitles available?

So who is winning this tournament? Going by Chris Charlton's tweet all 8 are still alive in Block B and from Block A Osprey, Ricochet, Lee, Taichi and Hiromu are still in it tied on 8 points.

I watched a Few Episodes and is quite good.

Wish was on Aussie TV
Yep. I would pay an amount just to see that show each week if possible. Wouldn't be a bad idea for NJPW or DirecTV to try and get it on Netflix or some other paid on demand video streaming service.

I bit the bullet and signed up for Global.
It's very good and now most monthly big events have English commentary.
Very hard to navigate though.

Is Naito retiring the belt a real possibility? It's an odd title in terms of where in the card it is. It's a secondary title for main eventers.

So is the stipulation just about the physical belt itself or the championship itself?

which stipulation do you mean?
If Naito wins the belt will be retired. I'm not sure if it's the belt design that will be retired and replaced with a new belt (mainly because it's so banged up from his disrespect) or the championship itself. Like will it just come out with a new design?

Nah, I haven't heard anything about the championship being retired. I think it's more a new one to replace the messed up one, could be the same, could be a redesign, but I think the plan might be Tana winning and being presented with a new one. His injury might put that up in the air but still seems like the direction.

Was just watching the press conference and Naito did say he would retire the belt if he wins, but it's not some official thing, just what naito is saying. Also threw some shade at nakamura. Man, I would love to see that match now.
