Crave a podcast that goes in-depth on the hotbed that is the Japanese pro wrestling scene? If so, the Eastern Lariat podcast from the MLW Radio Network is for you! Hosted by STRIGGA of Purolove.com and Cagematch.net and Dylan Harris of MLW's Lucha Talk, this bi-weekly podcast series explores the Japanese pro wrestling landscape with analysis, reviews and news on New Japan Pro Wrestling and beyond. Be introduced to new companies and their style of wrestling, insight on their business, wrestlers, rivalries, tours, big shows and much, much more.
Was it a Golden Week for New Japan and Big Japan? In this new epiosde the Eastern Lariat crew debates about the pros and cons of a very long Wrestling Dontaku tour, outstanding performances and flaws in New Japan's booking, foreigners in New Japan and the promotion being between needing and having. When previewing the Best of the Super Junior STRIGGA & Dylan talk about Will Ospreay's weird 2019 and they also give a preview and predictions for the tournament as well as a short Dominion preview. When switching over to Big Japan the main talking point is the big success of Endless Survivor on one side and this success being built on sand on the other. There's Okabayashi, there's Sekimoto, but who else?
