    This week Wrestling Omakase's third annual Year in Review series continues! Each week from now until the end of the year we will recap the 2019 of a specific promotion, promotions, or type of wrestling, covering all their major shows and moments and giving our picks for the major award categories. It's a great way for you to catch up with wrestling you may have missed this year and identify matches you may want to watch or rewatch before doing your end of the year awards voting! What an eventful year it was for joshi pro wrestling in 2019. You really had it all: major purchases, WWE poking around trying to get NXT Japan started, the most exposure they've gotten in the west in years, and of course just flat out awesome shows and matches put on by outstanding promotions. Here to help me break it all down are Luke (@oystersearrings) from @apricotpod and VOW contributor Taylor (@tamaimbo), as the three of us discuss everything from macro topics like the future of joshi in an increasingly corporate-dominated scene to individual shows, matches and wrestlers. The promotions we cover, in order, are: STARDOM, Tokyo Joshi, Sendai Girls, SEAdLINNNG, Gatoh Move, Marvelous, Ice Ribbon, Actwres girl'Z, OZ Academy, WAVE, PURE-J, YMZ and Diana (well, we lament that they never make tape at least). Of course, some companies get much more attention than others, but the sheer number of promotions we were able to cover in some form or fashion truly makes this an amazing episode. Once we finish going company-by-company we head into our joshi awards, including a detailed look at our Top 10 MOTY lists for all of joshi pro wrestling that's one of the highlights of the episode. Finally, we wrap things up with a gigantic mailbag. It's a huge and packed episode of Omakase covering all things Japanese women's wrestling, this week!

    This week on Wrestling Omakase it's Jake ([@oatgan](https://twitter.com/Oatgan))'s pick for winning our 2018 Champions Fantasy Draft, and he chose to have us watch a rather infamous show: FIP Everything Burns 2017! At his behest we're also joined by the hosts of the now ex-podcast Everything Evolves, Aaron Taube ([@aptaube](https://twitter.com/aptaube)) & Aaron Bentley ([@aaronlikethecar](https://twitter.com/aaronlikethecar)). Journey back to 1/8/17 and the early days of the FloSlam era of WWN, as Gabe promised a new era would begin for this long-running indie promotion. He also promised an EDGY~! new direction, which results in a LOT of cursing on this show. This show is very strange, only running about 2 hours and 15 minutes but featuring nearly as much talking as wrestling. It also features a weird mix of guys who have popped up all over the rest of WWN/the indies in general after this (Austin Theory, Fred Yehi, Sami Callahan, Jason Kincaid, etc.) and guys who have barely been seen again (Teddy Stigma! others!). We talk hecklers, PLANTS, cursing ring announcers, and much more. Plus, we answer some of your questions, discuss how the Aarons are feeling just a couple days after announcing the end of their own podcast, and more! It's a weird trip back to a weird time for US indie wrestling, this week! Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

    This week on Wrestling Omakase we talk DDT's return to running shows in front of audiences and Big Japan's 25th Anniversary Show! John is joined by returning guest Thomas (@rasslinratings) as the two talk a little about Coronavirus lockdowns (but not a lot, we promise....) and the controversial decision from virtually every promotion in Japan (save NJPW, which might be coming soon) to start running full shows in front of audiences again. We then turn our attention to two shows, one from one of the first companies to come back and one from a company that never actually stopped. First it's DDT Judgement from Korakuen Hall on 3/20, featuring a double title match main event with one that got a mixed reaction from our two hosts (one loved it, one not so much) and another that both were in stronger agreement on. Then it's Big Japan's 25th Anniversary Show from 3/16 in Yokohama, as John has a HOT TAKE to fire off about a match on this otherwise not super-interesting show. Plus, we take a brief look ahead at some other companies' upcoming comebacks: AJPW's 3/23 Korakuen and STARDOM's 3/24 Cinderella Tournament show (also from Korakuen).
