Sorry I couldn’t make it out there guys. I’m in a huge amount of pain right now but New Japan is giving me all the best treatment and taking great care of my health.
I’ll do my best to continue the G1. https://t.co/pSVsh82sqW

Daniel Bryan Comments
Daniel Bryan says he needs to go somewhere he’s never been before in a YouTube video after last night’s PPV:
Rocky Johnson “Soulman” To Be Released October 19th.
An article about Rocky Johnson’s memoir was posted by CBC here.
“Few people know anything about the man named Wayde Douglas Bowles, but this book will tell you everything you need to know. Born August 24, 1944, he grew up in Amherst, Nova Scotia; but he disappeared from the face of the earth in the summer of 1965. At the same time, a man named Rocky Johnson appeared, seemingly out of nowhere,” Johnson writes early in the book.
“I was both of those men. In July 1965, I became a professional wrestler and changed my name to Rocky Johnson.”
Darby Allin on How Skateboarding Prepared Him For Wrestling
Darby Allin took part in an interview with Chris Van Vliet where he said skateboarding prepared him for wrestling:
“Skateboarding is so much worse, god it destroyed me,” Allin said when asked about his transition from skateboarding to pro-wrestling. “The difference between skateboarding and wrestling is a skateboard slam, sometimes you’re there by yourself and you fall and you’re like ‘ah, that hurt’ but in wrestling there’s a thousand people like ‘yeah, good!’”
Tommaso Ciampa Says He Wants “Goldie” Back – 4 Months Out From Neck Surgery
I’m 4 months out of neck surgery… what an absolute freak.
Send your prayers and well wishes to Adam Cole.
