Tanahashi Suggests Wager For Okada Match

Hiroshi Tanahashi has suggested an added wager to his match against Kazuchika Okada on 9/23. Tanahashi already has his January 4th Challenge Certificate on the line in the Kobe showdown, but he feels Okada isn’t risking anything important and has asked for an extra wager. That wager is Okada’s CHAOS stablemate, and innovator of having Resting Anxious Face, YOSHI-HASHI. Tanahashi has been courting wrestlers like Hangman Page and YOSHI-HASHI, possibly to form a stable. Okada has yet to accept the wager.

YOSHI-HASHI has no say in this wager, and is seemingly chattel. New Japan Pro Wednesday denounces this wager, and stands with the United Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948; Article 4 of which states, “No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.”

Fale Doesn’t See Bullet Club Reuniting

New Japan Pro Wrestling recently posted an interview with Bad Luck Fale to the company’s official site. Fale went in detail about the history of Bullet Club, as well as being one of the few long-term foreigners in NJPW. Fale says Bullet Club was born out of trying to legitimize Prince Devitt (now Finn Balor) as a heavyweight, and the group wasn’t exactly unified on AJ Styles or Kenny Omega running BC. While Styles eventually ended up endearing himself to the group, Fale makes Omega’s 2016 coup out to be the beginning of the Bullet Club Civil War. Fale heaps praise onto The Young Bucks, Tanahashi, Nagata and other New Japan talent, but when asked about Bullet Club reuniting, Fale was very clear on the current state of Bullet Club.

I don’t think that we’re ever going to come back together. Our views of how to take the group forward are too different at this point. The end goal for me is to still be here in ten years. Whatever happens to the Club, it’s not something I really think about. The end goal is for us to work together and still be here in another five, ten years from now.
