    Good, he sucks as a commentator, enjoy his translations and his writing but he's way too dorky to have on commentary and he spoils big matches for me. I've switched back to Japanese commentary now.

    Yeah, he seems like a nice guy and all, but he was pretty rough especially when it came to the big moment. He was like Ocelot in MGSV where even when big stuff happens he just couldn't turn off his exposition mode.

    I still stick with English comms because I like Romero as a personality but I think the commentary sounds extremely inauthentic most of the time and it just doesn't click with the product. I think Charlton's a part of that problem. He's happy to translate but he's also happy to give us too many history lessons and shit. He goes off on tangents and doesn't call what he's actually seeing. Just imagine if that happened in a football game or some shit. It'd be crap to listen to and wouldn't engage me. I think, even with a very basic and limited understanding of Japanese or none at all, the commentary team clearly get over the big moments of the match.

    Just translations is fine and might actually help.

    Ocelot's not a gimp though.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    I'm fine with the English commentary for the first part of the shows. Adds some intrigue to the match and you get to learn a few things but when it comes to the important stuff and it's time to shut up and focus, it can be very annoying. Glad they are just using Charlton for translations now. I'm sure he is more than happy sitting at ringside and doing that, so no harm.

    I think Rocky is by far the best commentator they've ever had, and a million times better when it was Kelly and Don on there. If I watch it with Rocky I'm never tempted to flip like the others but I generally think the Japanese one is much better. Kelly oddly sometimes seems to try to emulate them on big moments. Regardless, less historical lessons and letting matches breathe more is nothing but good.

    A few years ago I thought Kelly was good but then years of listening to him screaming out finisher names during counts has become so very tedious.

    At least you don’t have to hear him scream out V-Trigger anymore now that Kenny is gone.

    VEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE TRIGGERRRRRRRRRRRRR!

    Lately I’ve been using the Japanese commentary. I don’t understand a thing they’re saying besides the names of the wrestlers, but I enjoy their enthusiasm. When I do listen to the English side I don’t mind Rocky, and I never did mind Don that much tbh.

    Looks like fan pushback has caused Charlton to be reinstated as a proper commentator. Fuck sake.

    According to WON there’s been a push back from fans so he’s back on commentary again.

    Fans suck

    Yeah, fans do suck.

    I bet reddit had something to do with this reading the thread on there about him is pretty funny.

    Re: NJPW General Discussion Thread

    I hate to say it because I personally am not his biggest fan in big matches as said, but they did the right thing to bring him back tbh. The fan outcry was too much & things have gone too far South in the US to risk ANY possible resentment from fans, particularly foreigners.

    I think the Japanese commentary is better anyway so...

    So why did Ospreay's elevated music suddenly get fucked by music rights for the G1, I always figured it was New Japan that got that theme for Will in the first place.

    Pretty happy with that Card. Ishii is going for the kill against KENTA and I wouldn't be shocked to see with plenty of shenanigans him taking the NEVER Openweight Title that night.

    First live show in 14 years and I get to see this card. I honestly would've been happy with just seeing all my favourites in tag matches but this is very exciting.

    Hmm. It's probably due to his recent appearances plus his young lions competing. I think it might be too early to return but it's Shibata so...

    It could be something but yeah, it's probably just because he is making more frequent appearances (which is great in of itself). I'm not getting my hopes up.
