#WTFWednesday: Counting Sheep? Try Counting Pins


Japanese comedy is known to be one of the most mind-boggling, yet captivating, forms of entertainment out there. I'm sure you've all seen classics such as spa goers being launched in rocket chairs, or how MRI scans are done in Japan.

Well, even Japanese wrestling promotion NJPW gets in on the fun:




So while you amuse yourself at the absurdity of Japanese comedy, here's a couple of things that stood out:

  • Jushin Thunder Liger can't even make a proper pinfall. Seriously? You're not even hooking their legs! Jesus Christ, this is why you're being sent to NXT.
  • #LOLTanahashiWins. Like always, the Ace of New Japan kicks out at 1. Yes. He's not going to put you over, not even when catching the z's.
  • Togi Makabe kicking out on instinct alone is awesome. I suppose it's something ingrained into the minds of these wrestlers, having spent all these years on the ring. When someone lays on top of you, get that fucking shoulder up. That must suck for sex, though.
  • Poor Honma. :( Everyone's favorite Kokeshi master still loses, despite the fact that he was the only one awake when Liger tried to pin him. Poor guy can't catch a break.

And just because, here's another one of these pranks, this time featuring YOSHI-HASHI and Shinsuke Nakamura from CHAOS. Oh, I probably shouldn't have told you who's involved, because now you know what happens:





Never change, NJPW. Never change.
