The Weird, Random or Interesting Things That Fit Nowhere Else Thread


Recommended Posts

Seems weird to wear the dress of a different culture to me, but then again, it's just fabric and not like it's part of some routine to ridicule Chinese.  Would be curious to see how strongly Lam practices his own culture, as he rises to defend it.

 

 

As always, Twitter is to blame for this.

 

Meanwhile, the Chinese are confused over the matter, and who can blame them?

To anyone wondering who the woman in my avatars is (her name is Io Shirai) and why I use her pictures, watch this:

Also, in case that wasn't impressive enough, since Mayu Iwatani (the woman she suplexes into oblivion) is rather thin and light, here is Io suplexing Viper (a damn good Scottish wrestler who has made a name for herself in Japan over the last couple years), who is literally twice her size (if not more), and her feet are off the ground, therefore she can't jump to help with the suplex, this is pure strength:

As I'm completely ignorant on the subject, how different is Japanese wrestling compared to something like WWE?

The most popular style of wrestling in Japan is called Strong Style.  It has a greater emphasis on striking, and especially the participants rarely try to dodge or block strikes, instead opting to take them then return strikes in kind, as a kind of test of resilience.  In the past 10 years or so different styles from around the globe have filtered into the WWE (as well as promotions from around the globe) so you see elements of Strong Style and Lucha Libre, and Catch as Catch Can in WWE (and everywhere) so the differences are not as pronounced.  WWE's style is still generally slower paced and more methodical than Japanese Strong Style overall and especially when compared to something like Mexican Lucha Libre or Japan's Dragon Gate (which ises a blend of Strong Style and Lucha Libre).

 

As a basic guideline:

 

WWE Style - Slow, methodical, deliberate, lots of playing to the crowd

Lucha Libre - Very quick, athletic, and chaotic

Strong Style - Lots of striking and tests of toughness

Catch as Catch Can - Extremely technical, lots of counters

 

Here's one of my favorite matches ever to showcase what strong style looks like:

 

 

Here's a women's match from 1993 to show that women in Japan have been going just as hard as the guys for decades (whereas in the WWE women's wrestling has evolved beyond hair pulling and lingerie matches only somewhat recently. WARNING: Not for the faint of heart (it gets real bloody)
