Yeah, I wouldn't mind an extra junior heavyweight to fit on my roster. :D

 

I called dibs ;)

Yamada to AJPW...

 

Remember the new rule going forward, where you can only pick up one free agent (sign one guy for a show/tour) every 24 hours going forward.

Are you sure? I requested Keichi Yamada be added to the Free Agent list more than 24 hrs after I picked up Terry Boy. I'm pretty sure AJPW and NJPW were waiting for me to pick up Ymamada and cut one of my guys. What am I missing here?

Either way, that doesn't change a whole lot for me since AJPW picked Yamada.

A mistake on my end.

 

Wait... isn't Yamada=Liger?

 

If not, who is he?

MY mistake, as well! KeiICHI Yamada is Liger. KeiSUKE Yamada is one of my Osaka Pro drinking buddies (which is why it would be kind of a dick move/I would be all butt-hurt if somebody else snagged him after I requested he be added):

The man who would be Black Buffalo actually had a dark match on the IWA Death Match Tourney card (twenty years ago last week):

 

Keisuke Yamada & Keizo Matsuda defeated Yoshihiro Tajiri & Taisuke Tagami via pinfall (11:44)

 

It was while researching Tajiri that I found out my old drinking buddy (although he himself doesn't imbibe) was already active in '95.

 

I am genuinely curious if SirEdger or LowBlowPodcast were trying to steal him from me, or if they were after the guy I want to cut to make room for him.

 

Also, if I do get him, I maybe need to figure out a different gimmick for him, since Black Buffalo is pretty Osaka-specific (Orix Buffaloes Baseball Team).

Sorry about the mess.

Cheers. And... I guess All Japan and New Japan (and UWFi and FMW) can fight over who gets Satoshi "Joe-Joe Lee" Kojima, whom I am cutting to make room for Black Buffalo. (I think he'll keep the name for now, it can be a heel thing, supporting another city's team).

I was wondering when somebody was gonna grab him. I wonder if there's anyone on your roster he might be able to form a tag team with down the line. Maybe someone who has spent some time in Europe, like Kojima has?

Well, there are a couple like Manabu Nakanishi, Keiji Muto and of course, Hiroyoshi Tenzan. I guess my better option at the moment would be to jump ahead and form The Bull Powers now rather than wait in January.

The WWF picks up Tatanka. 


I picked him up in the draft, but happy to drop him...

Oops missed that. He's still yours if you want him.
