HUSTLE-3 news

No your NOT seeing things! That is indeed Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Mick Foley posing in front of the HUSTLE-3 banner! Some BIG changes have been made to the show to include the three WWE/WCW greats:
Main Event: Shinya Hashimoto & Naoya Ogawa VS Kevin Nash & Scott Hall
Triple Crown Title: Toshiaki Kawada VS Mick Foley (!!!!!!)

The Triple Crown change comes as a HUGE shocker to myself! Though now it seems Kawada has more of a chance to retain the title. But what happened to Goldberg? Hopefully this last minute change delivers, though I don't expect the main event to be outstanding. Hall and Nash were suppose to work HUSTLE-2 back in March but didn't happen for some reason. And it's lucky that DSE are covering the tab as having these three American greats together with Bill Goldberg could easily break the budget of most promotions.
On a related topic, Mark Coleman, Dan Bobish, Giant Silva and Yuji Shimada made an appearance at a recent Fuyuki-Gun show and got major heat from the indy crowd. Shimada announced a big six-man hardcore match for HUSTLE-3 involving Masato Tanaka, Tetsuhiro Kuroda & Tomoaki Honma VS Sabu, Kintaro Kanemura & The Gladiator.
I still wonder why they stick Tanaka back in these occasional hardcore matches when he works so hard to try and lose the hardcore stigma he's stuck with. I also wonder when the heck they plan to have the Tanaka-Ohtani grudge match before everyone loses interest or just plain forgets about it.
