Hello chums, WH and I are set to record the third episode of Japanese Audio Wrestling next week. With that in mind, and Damian Abraham's challenge of 'explain Japan' from a few weeks ago ringing in my ears, I think it'll be good to turn over a few minutes to hearing from you guys. We might not spend too long reading lists of questions but will have a Question of the Month deal, so only the best one or two questions will be picked... That is unless we only get one or two questions, in which case we'll read them all.
So, have a question, about Japanese wrestling or about Japan in general? Post away, or if your Q is a bit more pithy, send it to Chris.charlton or @whpark9 and we'll A it.

Is there a way to learn japanese without taking classes and everything? I learned english just from watching wrestling and through movies/videogames and it was pretty quick and easy. This approach doesn't work at all when it comes to japanese - I watch alot of puro and still have no clue. I'm not talking about being an expert - I just want to understand what the hell the wrestlers are saying. When I watch lucha I atleast understand a third or so, but here.. Very frustrating. I will regret my decision of taking german university class instead of japanese for the rest of my life.
Chris and I are going to the big New Japan show on October 8th so we'll probably do a review of that show sometime next week. We'll also answer your questions on that show so please be patient. Also keep the questions coming they're much appreciated!

you briefly mentioned Prince Devitt in the latest show how big a star is he in Japan? Do you think he will ever win a heavyweight title? How is he received by the Japanese fans? Is he over? and finally before he went to Japan his name was Fergal Devitt why the name change? Why Prince? as Ireland doesn't have a monarchy seems a strange name just wondering thanks for the recent show was very informative and interesting keep up the good work.
