Global Localization: How Big Can NXT Get in the Pro-Wrestling Industry?

Pro-wrestling companies based in the United States having working relationships with pro-wrestling companies based in other countries is nothing new. ROH works with NJPW, a Japan-based company that has existed for 46 years and is continuing to grow. However, NXT has the potential to become the most international professional-wrestling promotion in the industry since World Championship Wrestling. WCW was not as recognized worldwide as WWE, but WWE usually focuses on only their own expansive roster and only has events outside of the United States on occasion. In the 1990's, WCW simultaneously had a working relationship with not only NJPW, but also AAA, one of the biggest pro-wrestling companies in Mexico. WCW and NJPW co-produced many PPV events, WCW took part in an NJPW-produced supercard in 1996, and the two companies traded talent on a regular basis. Meanwhile, WCW co-promoted a lucha libre PPV with AAA in 1994, and booked AAA talent for WCW events frequently in the mid-1990's. Out of all of the companies that defined themselves as being of worldwide status, WCW best represented that definition.

Now, NXT has positioned themselves where they can potentially be established in the same manner that WCW was as being a true GLOBAL promotion. At the 2018 Business Partner Summit, NXT producer Triple H introduced "Global Localization", his plan of creating NXT brands in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America. This plan began taking shape with NXT UK, and with the birth of this brand began relationships with PROGRESS and ICW, two major companies in the UK. This relationship enables NXT UK to present fans outside of the UK to names that they are familiar with as well as talent that they currently are unaware of but should know about. Not only does this legitimize NXT as a global brand, but it also gives PROGRESS and ICW increased exposure as well.

As the NXT brand continues to expand globally, NXT could be used to provide the unpredictability that pro-wrestling fans enjoy, and opportunity that all pro-wrestlers desire. With NXT currently having an NXT North American Championship, the NXT Championship could be elevated to world title status. The blueprint of NXT could be different from traditional pro-wrestling governing bodies, where the main brand stands at the top of the heap, while the affiliates are treated as the minor-leagues. In NXT, each territory could be treated as an equal. The next NXT World Champion could come from NXT. They could come from NXT UK, where Pete Dunne is making an impact. Or they could come from one of the other NXT brands than will be created as a result of the Global Localization project. NXT could feature a form of surprise and excitement that has not been seen in the industry for quite some time.

I look forward to seeing the Global Localization project continue as NXT expands worldwide. I currently reside in Japan, and there many promoters and talents here who would be a great for WWE/NXT. It is only matter of NXT coming into contact with those people. Like I had mentioned in my blog post about WWE shining the spotlight on independent wrestling, every time NXT expands to a different area, people with knowledge of that pro-wrestling scene will need to brought in if the Global Localization project is going to be a success, which of course WWE has the resources to accomplish.

[ZERO1][PREVIEW] 10/08/18

ZERO1 comes to Pachinko Tamasaburo Itoigawa in Niigata on October 8 with two great matches.

In the first match, Yoshikazu Yokoyama will face Chris Vice. It will be a very interesting match, as Yokoyama puts his unorthodox style up against Vice's strength.

In the second match, Shinjiro Otani & Tatsuhito Takaiwa will face Ikuto Hidaka & Syouki Kitamura. Having had made his debut this past February, Kitamura will be a part of pro-wrestling's bright future. The other three competitors are bringing an impressive amount of tag-team experience into this match, with Otani being a former NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Champion, Takaiwa being a former NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Champion, and Hidaka being a current co-holder of the NWA Intercontinental Tag Team Championship.

Hikaru Shida Celebrates her 10th Anniversary with, "REvenge"

On October 9, Hikaru Shida will present her own event, "REvenge" which will celebrates her 10th anniversary in the pro-wrestling industry. At this event, Shida will face former GHC Heavyweight Champion Naomichi Marufuji. In a match between the two last year at a Hikaru Shida-produced event, Shida came out on the losing end. It will be very interesting to see what takes place during their rematch.



During Hikaru Shida's 10-year career, she has wrestled in many top Japan-based promotions, including WAVE, where Shida has been Regina Di WAVE Champion. While in WAVE, she wrestled talents who are familiar faces to many fans outside of Japan, such as Asuka, and Hiroyo Matsumoto (a participant in this year's WWE Mae Young Classic.



Hikaru Shida has also wrestled overseas in UK-based promotions, Mexico-based CMLL and AAA, as well as the US-based SHIMMER Women Athletes, where she has wrestled current WWE Superstar Ember Moon (then known as, "Athena").



As mentioned earlier, the October 9 event is not the first one to be produced by Hikaru Shida. She has been producing events since 2014, and wrestled Asuka on one of them that year.



This year's Hikaru Shida-produced event will take place at the legendary Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. It will be her first event there, so "REvenge" will be Shida's biggest show yet. Tickets can be purchased here.

[Sendai Girls][PREVIEW] 7/11/18

Sendai Girls comes to the Rakuten Seimei Park Miyagi in Sendai on July 11 with two great matches.

In the first match, DASH Chisako will face Manami. DASH can take punishment in the ring just as well as she can dish it out, and at only 13 years of age, Manami will be a part of pro-wrestling's bright future. So it will be very interesting to see what takes place during their match.

In the second match, Mika Iwata & Chihiro Hashimoto will face Cassandra Miyagi & Heidi Katrina. Miyaji and Katrina are the current Sendai Girls Tag Team Champions. Katrina's career began in the UK, but since last year, she focused her career on Sendai Girls, which apparently has been paying off. Miyagi, along with being talented as a wrestler, is also talented as performer, presenting a persona that reminds me of the late Luna Vachon. Iwata has seen a lot of tag-team action over the past year, and recently faced the Champions quite a few times with different partners. With her impressive strength, technical ability, and speed, Hashimoto is the most similar to Meiko Satoumura out of everyone who Satomura has trained, and will surely be a great partner for Iwata in this match.

Sendai Girls comes to Ito-Yokado in Hirosaki-shi, Aomori Prefecture on May 6 in celebration of Children's Day with two great matches and a special pro-wrestling class. Admission will be FREE.

At 11am, Mika Iwata & Ami Sato will face Cassandra Miyagi & Heidi Katrina, who are the current Sendai Girls Tag Team Champions. Iwata has seen a lot of tag-team action over the past year, and recently faced the Champions in a match with Alex Lee as her partner. It will be interesting to see how she fares this time against Miyagi & Katrina with Sato in her corner.

At 11:30am (as well as at 2:30pm), there will be a Children's Pro Wrestling Class. This will be an excellent opportunity for young fans, because Sendai Girls has been responsible for training many of the talented members of its roster, including former Sendai Girls World Champion Chihiro Hashimoto, current Sendai Girls Tag Team Champion Cassandra Miyagi, and former Pure-J Openweight Champion DASH Chisako.

At 2pm, Manami & Chihiro Hashimoto will face DASH Chisako & Cassandra Miyagi. This will be a reunion of sorts as Chisako and Miyagi were briefly a team in 2017 and even had captured the Sendai Girls Tag Team Championship. They were never defeated for the title- it was vacated when Miyagi suddenly ended her partnership with Chisako.
