Here are some note from Steve corino which addresses some of the differences between America and Japan.

Notes from 2005 shoot interview with Steve Corino -$1.2 million was missing from the Zero-One bank account, and the company was 4 days from going under when they reorganized in 2004. Lots of people invested: Ohtani, Nakamura and his father, the ring announcer, etc. Corino says that Hashimoto was facing a lawsuit over the money, and that his girlfriend (Kodo Fuyuki’s widow) was somehow involved. -When Zero-One was in trouble, Choshu decided to rejoin New Japan.

One night while Corino and Spanky were walking on the street, a very drunk Choshu picked them up and took them to a bar. Choshu offered to take them with him to Newapan, especially because he thought Corino could do more as a serious wrestler. They turned him down, deciding to be loyal. Then, Nakamura said he was trying to go to New Japan and Corino was shocked. (Of course, Nakamura ended up helping Zero-One stay afloat so Corino was able to keep doing tours). -He got in a legal/financial scrape because of an ex-girlfriend and had to put $13,000 in an escrow account. Nakamura gave him the money for it, and Steve was able to repay him when he (Steve) was cleared a year later.


Choshu and Kawada don’t call any spots, they just expect you to know in advance what’s coming next. (Which in Choshu’s case is easy, and Steve had no problem with it). One time, he was told that the finish would be whatever and whenever Choshu wanted.

On working in Japan: A heel needs to stay on top of a babyface because they’ll start coming back if you give them too much time/space. Most of the match isn’t called or planned, especially the opening minutes. The goal is to make sure it looks competitive rather than cooperative.

On Japanese-style stiffness: Ohtani does a ‘big punch’ spot and wanted to make sure Corino sold it. Corino asked Masato Tanaka about it, and Tanaka of all people said it was dangerous. Sure enough, Ohtani landed a hard punch just below the ear that had Corino wobbling. Also, on his first couple tours Corino was eating some elbows where the wrestlers were driving through rather than stopping when the blow made contact; they lightened up eventually.

He said that Kohei Sato did a running elbow where the point of the elbow made contact, and kept doing it until Hashimoto took one and made him stop. Takaiwa would always stiff wrestlers he hadn’t worked with before.

Young wrestlers would get in trouble for selling a loose shot. Ohtani’s finger-biting spot hurts so much you can’t do a fakey “ow ow ow” reaction.

Corino spent months learning Japanese style in the Zero-One dojo, because he figured that was where he could earn a living.

Respect for Corino. Corino used to be one of the guy's in charge of an indie promotion called the PWF, and I used to be a columnist for one of their sites. I used to go to a lot of the local shows that they had, and I was sorry to see it go. Then they started having a US version of Zero One called World 1.

Vince and the higher ups @ the WWE have quarterly meetings with stock holders, he pitches to them what their future programming and merchandising plans are.

Since the company makes buttloads of money the stockholders usually just go with what he sells them.

Vinnie is a spin master, most Billionaires are.

The WWE also anwsers to TV networks' Standards & Practices for their weekly programming, but they have more leeway with Raw seeing as it's live.

All USA network can really make them do is utilize the 5 second delay for live TV and penalize them later if they voilate FCC regs, but cable is more lax with the rules than broadcast TV.

Smackdown! & Superstars (is that show still on? lol) are taped in advance and edited heavily before airing.

Seeing as how the company has taken a more PG approach to the weekly shows, I doubt they're having problems with censorship right now.

When it comes to storylines, Vince has the final say so, so in that respect he doesn't answer to anyone.

If he doesn't like what the writers hand in, it ain't happ'nin.

Wrestling matters...TNA just started using that line last Thursday and I'm already sick of it...It's pretty obvious they're using that line as a shot to WWE for them not "acknowleding" the wrestling part...Wrestling matters, give me a break...

I was surprised that Chyna didn't look like absolute crap, seems like she's been care of herself recently.

The last time I remember seeing her she was an absolute mess.

She prolly got her shit together when she stopped hanging out with Sean Waltman.

TNA star Hulk Hogan got physical during his appearance at the CWI independent show on Saturday in Brantford, Ont. Dot Net reader Adam McFarland reports: "Hogan came out at the end of the show to save Brutus 'The Barber' Beefcake from a double team from The Nasty Boys. Hogan came out to 'Real American,' wearing his yellow shirt and red bandana. The place popped huge for Hogan.

When he got in the ring, he tore his shirt off and pointed at both of the Nasty Boys for the "YOU!" bit, and then punched one of them to knock them down and threw the other off the ropes to deliver the big boot. He threw a few more punches and tossed Knobs out of the rings while Brutus put Sags in a sleeper for the win. Hogan addressed the crowd and then had a pose down with Brutus. Hogan was way more physical than I was expecting him to be with the condition of his back."
