    Satoshi Kojima declared to challenge for NWA World Heavy Weight Championship against Hiroyoshi Tenzan. The title match has not been set yet, but their feud has already began. At NJPW Korakuen Hall show last weekend, Kojima took on tag team match against Tenzan. After the match, Tenzan attacked Kojima with NWA title belt.

    Kojima got really angry what Tenzan did. At backstage, he said "Hey, why did you hit me with your belt?". And Tenzan said "You lost NJC first round. You said you will win NJC then you will challenge me. But you lost. So you are not deserved for this title. I don't know Tencozy thing. I can beat you.".Tenzan is also angry because Kojima lost NJC first round.

    Yes. he is angry, but why did he attacked Kojima with NWA title belt? It is too much. Kojima said "It is same thing as Rob Conway! You sell out to the president of NWA Bruce Tharpe?". We can say Bruce Tharpe may be putting the strings behind the scenes. We have to keep eyes on their feud.

    NJPW started their internet streaming service called "NJPWworld" since last December. The owner of NJPW Takaaki Kidani is positive to buy tape libraries of other promotions. A fan asked Kidani on twitter "I want you to buy tape libraries of FWM, UWF International, SWS, WAR and other promotions for NJPWWorld.". Then Kidani replied "I really want to do it."

    I think Kidani wants to put more resources on NJPWWorld. In order to increase their subscribers, he is considering to but the tape libraries of other companies like FMW and UWF. One of the big problem here is that it is not clear who own those libraries now. It is one of the reason why no official DVDs of FMW,UWF, and WAR things. But I hope NJPW will get more tape libraries.

    The latest edition of Chris Jericho's podcast "Talk Is Jericho" has been released. At this time, Samoa Joe who left TNA appeared as a guest. They did not only talk about Joe leaving TNA but also life in Japan which they have in common. They both wrestled in Japan for early his career. Jericho came to FMW, WAR and NJPW. When he came to FMW and WAR, he joined "Fuyuki-Gun" with Kodo Fuyuki, Jado and Gedo. His name was Lion-do. He keeps in touch with Jado and Gedo.

    In his podcast, they talked funny stories in Japan.
    Jericho said
    Jericho : First time I started working for Tenryu's group. I came down to the lobby (of hotel) at 10 o'clock. Lobby at 10 o'clock. Asai, Ultimo Dragon said to me "You are late". I said it was 10 o'clock. No, 10 o'clock means 9:30. I was like that kind of a very meticulous, as you said machine. you be here this time, and show up this time and if you do that, it's the easiest place to work. You show up on time and don't do stupid, you can stay there forever.
    There are many funny stories about Japan. I liked Jericho's Hot Cake story. Yeah, if you come to Japan and want to order hot cake, you have to say "Hotto Cakeiki!!!".

    NJPWWorld has NJPW documentary series. There are inside stories of Hiroshi Tanahashi, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kazuchika Okada, and YOSHI-HASHI. and latest series is about Tetsuya Naito. He talks about his life, and his father also appeared & talked about his son.

    What I am impressed the most is the story about his first day of NJPW. He passed NJPW Tryout in 2005. And when he first went to in NJPW dormitory, he met Yoshitatsu. Yoshi said to Naito "I am the head of this dormitory.". Naito thought "Wow! he is Yamamoto!(is real name of Yoshi)". Of course he know Yoshi because he was big fan of NJPW.

    Then he met Togi Makabe. Makabe said to Naito "Hey, what is your hairstyle?". Makabe was angry. As you know, the hairstyle of Young Lion should be buzz-cut. But at that time Naito had long hair. He knew Young Lion should shave their hair, but he thought somebody shave after he enter the dormitory. He said Makabe was really scary. He wanted to run away.

    In this documentary, Naito visited Animal Hamaguchi Gym where he trained before entering NJPW. Animal Hamaguchi Gym is the best prowrestling school in Japan. They made a lot of famous prowrestlers like Michiyoshi Ohara, Shinjiro Otani, Satoshi Kojima, Takao Omori, Wataru Inoue, Tomoaki Honma, YOSHI-HASHI, Shingo Takagi, Takaaki Watanabe and more. He was raised by great wrestling school and Dojo.
