What Wrestling Should You Watch This Week (2/10/20)

Monday 2/10: All Japan Pro Wrestling

(Streams live at 9:30 PM EST on AJPW.TV)

Far and away the biggest story in All Japan in recent years has been ace and current Triple Crown Champion Kento Miyahara, who is currently the 500th day of his fourth reign with the title. Beginning with Miyahara’s defeat of Zeus in a 2018 Match of the Year contender match, this reign boosted interest in AJPW and re-centered the Triple Crown as one of Japanese wrestling’s most important titles. Miyahara heads into his 10th title defense at this Korakuen Hall show against Yuma Aoyagi, the 24-year-old rising star who has been one of a handful of names pitched to possibly dethrone Miyahara and end his current world-beating run. Elsewhere on the card, three other title matches: Violent Giants make the first defense of their newly reclaimed World Tag Championships, Dragon Gate’s Yokosuka Susumu makes his first defense of the AJPW World Junior Heavyweight Championship, and Jake Lee and Koji Iwamoto of Sweeper make their fourth defense of the All Asia Tag Championships.—Nigel Spudes

Tuesday 2/11: DDT BOYZ -Valentine Edition-

(Streams live at 3AM EST on DDT Universe.)

The BOYZ are back in town, and just in time for Valentines Day! BOYZ is DDT’s fan-service focused brand that does shows for exclusively female audiences, (Emily Pratt did a great article about it over the summer) and I am incredibly excited for this Valentines show. The card promises several tag matches, a BOYZ Assessment game, and a singles bout between bonafide dreamboats MAO and Yuki Ueno. Thanks DDT!— LB Hunktears

Wednesday 2/12: AEW Dynamite

(Airs at 8PM EST on TNT and FITE.)

How does AEW plan to top the emotional rollercoaster that was Cody Rhodes getting whipped on live TV? By letting two dudes who’ve had their eyes poked out scrap at each other. Santana’s post-ocular trauma promo was every bit as good as the AEW’s best to this point, a sober, intense moment in a feud that’s had its fair share of hiccups, and the match should be a blast. Also on the card, Riho defends her championship against Nyla Rose in a rematch of the first championship match. AEW’s women’s division is simultaneously the most interesting and most frustrating aspect of the company, with little difference between the champion and her challengers in terms of how they’re being presented. The first match between these two was exciting if a tad sloppy, and there’s no reason to suspect that this will be any different. Also, Hangman Adam Page will probably continue to drink, and his friends in The Elite will probably continue to make fun of him behind his back rather than trying to figure out what his issue is. Just like real life!— Colette Arrand

Thursday 2/13: Pro Wrestling Basara

(Streams at 5AM EST on Nico Pro.)

Formerly an offshoot of DDT, Pro Wrestling BASARA amicably cut ties with its parent company and became an independent promotion at the beginning of 2020. This is its first show as an indie, broadcast on Nico Pro a month after it aired. DDT’s Masahiro Takanashi appears in the opener, and the main event has a defense of the UWA World Trios Title. — Nigel Spudes

Saturday: GCW Run Rickey Run

(Streams at 8PM EST on FITE for $14.99.)

Joey Janela returns for his first match since he started with AEW makes this a pretty big show for GCW. Nick Gage taking on Rickey Shane Page for the GCW World Title makes it an even bigger one. — LB Hunktears

Sunday: NXT TakeOver Portland

(Kick-Off Show starts at 6:30 EST on the WWE Network.)
