In September of 2020, Pro Wrestling NOAH debuted on Fite TV. On partnering with Fite, the company was introduced to a whole new audience. Over the next couple of months I will be writing blogs to help new fans get to know a little more about the company.
Recently, I got the opportunity to interview Stewart Fulton, who provides English commentary for NOAH on Fite TV. Here he gives us his top matches for new fans to watch, his break out star of 2021, and his opinion on what Keiji Mutoh winning the GHC Heavyweight title means to wrestling as a whole.
Q: For fans new to NOAH, how would you say NOAH differs from other Japanese wrestling promotions such as NJPW?
Q: For fans who want to watch NOAH matches from the past, which matches would you recommend fans to watch?
Q: Who are the 3 top names in NOAH that people new to the product should check out instantly?
Q: For fans unaware of Keiji Mutoh’s history in wrestling, what in your opinion does a legend like him bring to the NOAH product at the moment?
Q: How important do think Keiji Mutoh’s title reign is to wrestling as a whole and not just in Japan?
Q: For fans who want to learn more about the history of NOAH, how do you recommend they go about it?
Q: Who is your breakout star of 2021 going to be, the one that fans must watch?
Q: How much of a honour was it to be able to call Keiji Mutoh’s title win?
Q: How did the opportunity come around for yourself to do commentary for NOAH on FITE tv?
Q: What do you do personally do to prepare for calling an event?
I would like to take this time to personally thank Stewart for taking the time out to answer my questions and give us a great insight into NOAH, as well as his work as a commentator. Pro Wrestling NOAH’s popularity continues to grow since its partnership with Fite TV, and there’s no doubt that 2021 will be an amazing time to jump on board as a new fan of the promotion.
