NJPW с американска телевизионна сделка

Recommended Posts

AXS TV пуснаха видео реклама, в която рекламират новите им шоута за 2015. В рекламата са включени кадри и от най-голямата японска кеч федерация New Japan Pro-Wrestling (@1:33 нататък). Във видеото NJPW е описана като "new series", което намеква, че става дума за поредица, а не единично шоу. Засега не се знае повече по въпроса. Предстои да видим за какво точно става дума.

EDIT - Слуховете са, че става дума за 13 епизода със стари мачове (от 4-ти януари 2013 натам) и коментаторите ще бъдат Mauro Ranallo и Josh Barnett.
 


AXS TV преди години излъчваше ROH, но тогава беше по-малка телевизия. Сега е по-голяма, но все пак не е особено голяма телевизия и е достъпна само в около 37% от американските домове с телевизионни приемници.

Building on the success of the AXS TV FIGHTS Friday night franchise, AXS TV has acquired a 13 episode series from Japan’s largest professional wrestling promotion, NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING (NJPW). Premiering Jan. 16, 2015, NJPW will air on Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT leading into the network’s weekly live MMA, Muay Thai, and kickboxing broadcasts. Airing for the first time ever in the U.S., the hour-long weekly series features the most exciting matches from NJPW’s Japanese broadcasts and pay-per-view events.

Former UFC Heavyweight champion and NJPW veteran Josh Barnett and famed combat sports commentator Mauro Ranallo are providing English language commentary for the series.

Founded in 1972, NJPW has established itself as the premier wrestling organization in Japan and the second largest and fastest growing wrestling promotion in the world. In recent years, NJPW has gained international recognition, winning the Wrestling Observer Newsletter “Promotion of the Year” award two years running and boasting three-year reigning “Wrestler of the Year” Hiroshi Tanahashi. The series premiere features Tanahashi defending the promotion’s prestigious IWGP Heavyweight Title against his long-time rival Kazuchika Okada in front of 29,000 fans at the Tokyo Dome.

“With this acquisition, AXS TV FIGHTS now offers one of the most diverse combat sports and sports entertainment programming line-ups on television,” said AXS TV FIGHTS CEO Andrew Simon. “There is a strong relationship and influence between professional wrestling and MMA, and with the addition of Josh Barnett and Mauro Ranallo as our commentators, we’re confident this new venture will be a crossover hit with wrestling and MMA fans alike.”AXS TV’s NJPW episodes were produced by and purchased from TV ASAHI CORPORATION.

Шоуто дебютира този петък:

 

Между другото:

The best one hour pro wrestling TV show I ever saw was a 1986 episode of World Wide Wrestling with a Flair vs. Windham match. It is now a very distant second. The 3rd episode of New Japan on AXS is like nothing I've ever seen before. Story telling, announcing, post-match, how it led to the next step. I defy anyone to not connect with that show. I'm told the episode I'm talking about debuts January 23 at 10 pm (they are running a two hour block the second week). Will repeat 1/30 at 9.

Страхотен първи епизод. Целият епизод включваше единствено мачът между Tanahashi и Okada от Wrestle Kingdom 7. Много добра работа на коментаторите Mauro Ranallo и Josh Barnett. Striker и свинската глава могат само да си водят бележки как се прави. Форматът като цяло много ми харесва и единия час мина страшно бързо. Като прибавим и интервюто на Tanahashi преди мача, което hype-ваше самия мач, нещата изглеждат много добре. Нямам нищо против всеки епизод да следва тази формула.

Абе, съжалявам за офф-топика ама пичага, ти имаш ли мнение, за която и да е федерация, в което да не храниш JR? Сигурно и футбол като гледаш натякваш на всички как Боби Борисов е много по-голям коментатор от "свинята"...

^ Ти изобщо слушал ли си му коментарите през последните 10-15 години, или само говориш наизуст? Разбирам, че WWE са ти промили мозъка с това тяхното натякване, че тоя смешник е най-добрия коментатор ever, но за мен той е най-прехваления коментатор ever. Дори не е смешно колко е неадекватен в последно време.

Е, все пак е преведено на английски, а и идеята на поредицата е по скоро "да се запознаеш с японците". chinese.gif

New Japan Pro Wrestling’s highlights show on AXS-TV has been renewed with a multi-year after surprisingly strong viewership, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

Season 3 will run from August 4th – December 11th on Friday nights (taking a week off for Thanksgiving). AXS-TV is looking for NJPW’s show to air weekly in 2016, regularly featuring matches taped only 3-4 months prior.

New Japan’s weekly show has been a surprise hit, averaging around 200,000 viewers – making it the #4 most watched national wrestling show in the United States. RAW, Smackdown and Impact do better numbers – but [great] NJPW matches from last year are drawing more viewers than Ring of Honor on Destination America and Lucha Underground. Throw NXT into the mix and there really is a lot of good wrestling out from a diverse group of promotions.

Mauro Ranallo and Josh Barnett will be back for Season 3. For 5 weeks starting in October, they’ll call the action on matches from Wrestle Kingdom 9 only previously broadcast with Jim Ross and Matt Stryker on commentary.

Това последното ще е интересно да се чуе като разлика. Гледаемостта също ми идва доста изненадваща - само аплодисменти за целия пакет, но дано наваксат с таймлайна на продукта.

LEGENDARY WRESTLING COMMENTATOR JIM ROSS JOINS AXS TV’S ‘NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING’ ALONGSIDE JOSH BARNETT STARTING MARCH 4

‘NJPW’ Airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on AXS TV

LOS ANGELES – January 19, 2016 – AXS TV today confirmed legendary pro wrestling commentator Jim Ross will join AXS TV’s hit series ‘New Japan Pro Wrestling’ (NJPW) to call play-by-play commentary alongside NJPW veteran and former UFC Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett beginning Friday, March 4 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. In Ross’ first episode, he and Barnett will call the action for matches from Wrestling Dontaku 2015.

NJPW, which premiered its 52-episode second season on AXS TV Jan. 15, airs Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. This season features episodes highlighting matches from the 2015 New Japan Cup, Invasion Attack, HINOKUNI, Best of the Super Juniors 22, Dominion 7.5, G1 Climax 25 and more throughout the year.

A WWE Hall of Famer, Ross was known as the voice of WWE for nearly two decades, bringing his incomparable broadcasting talent to hundreds of TV and pay-per-view broadcasts for the organization. No stranger to New Japan Pro Wrestling, Oklahoma native Ross also called the first-ever, live English-language broadcast of NJPW with Wrestle Kingdom 9 in 2015.

"I'm excited to join the AXS TV team in presenting the amazing athletes of the New Japan Pro Wrestling brand,” said Ross. “I'm a major fan of NJPW and look forward to joining Josh Barnett to form the best broadcast team in the genre. Business just picked up!”

"It's a dream to be able to sit next to the legendary Jim Ross and call the incredible wrestling action of New Japan Pro Wrestling,” said Barnett. “I've listened to his commentary throughout the years and I'm glad to have someone as distinguished as him to work with in the booth."

“Jim Ross is unquestionably one of the best announcers in the history of professional wrestling. He is a true legend and we look forward to leveraging his unparalleled experience to continue to make NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING on AXS TV the best wrestling show on television,” said AXS TV FIGHTS CEO Andrew Simon
