Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 41: Alpha and Omega

New Japan’s Power Struggle PPV is in the books, and it had HUGE implications on the card for WrestleKingdom 12. Sleeve Assassin (@SleeveAssassin) returns to break down the card along with Captain Jack (@JackHeartless).  They discuss a dream partner for Kitamura in the proposed Power & Glory 3K, the fantastic rise of Roppongi 3K, the return of the Young Bucks, the company’s imminent return to the US, crafty vet Tanahashi, the continued build to Naito/Okada, the reveal of Switchblade…and oh yeah, CHRIS JERICHO returning to NJPW to challenge Kenny Omega!!

Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 39: You Can Leave The Bubble At Any Time…

This week, Captain Jack @JackHeartless welcomes comedian/writer Erik Barnes @ErikWBarnes LIVE in studio to talk about the negativity wrestling fans are heaping onto Dave Meltzer, The Wrestling Observer, and by extension, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.  As regular attendees of American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, CA, Jack & Eric discuss both the negatives and the wonderful quirks that make PWG such a unique promotion, while also trying to encourage WWE-only fans to venture outside of their bubble.  There’s even more great wrestling out here, honest!

Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 37: The Ultimate Victory of Billy Ostrich!

This week, Captain Jack Heartless (@JackHeartless) welcomes Joshua Gavin (@TheLumberJew) back to the show!  They talk about the ongoing WWN drama, including the emergence of @LeakyGabe, Rich Swann’s uncanny mastery of impressions, a head-to-head comparison of EVIL and Braun’s chair-throwing prowess, and Will Ospreay being great as usual.  Oh, and there’s a review of NJPW’s King of Pro Wrestling PPV in there, too.  We liked a lot about it.

Enjoy!

Here it is…the home stretch of the best tournament in pro wrestling!  After 28 hours(?!) of tournament matches, Captain Jack Heartless (@JackHeartless) wraps up his coverage of G1 Climax 27, with help from special guest Owen Reynoldson (@owenreynoldson).  They give you the Top 5 from Nights 13-19, the Top 10 G1 matches overall, the tournament MVP, and plenty of speculation about what it all means as we begin the Road to WrestleKingdom 12 on January 4th, 2018!

Captain Jack’s Armbar Emporium Ep. 32: NJPW G1 Climax, Nights 7-12!

Captain Jack Heartless (@JackHeartless) & Sleeve Assassin (@SleeveAssassin) waste no time this week, and jump right back into the best tournament in pro wrestling, the G1 Climax!

Much like last week, they watch every tournament match from nights 7 through 12 in both blocks so you don’t have to, and each gives a Top 5.  Some of the choices may surprise you!

Tangents include why Okada may be having the Best Year Ever, how Nakamura and AJ leaving made the G1 grow, who will upset Kenny down the stretch, Ibushi’s apparent death wish, and our impending trip to meet Stan “The Lariat” Hansen!  Holy crap!!
