  All Japan Pro Wrestling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW) (全日本プロレス, zen nihon puroresu) is a Japanese professional wrestling promotion established in 1972.
In the beginning the PWF recognized a world heavyweight championship and several "regional championships" given as billing to foreign stars depending from which region they came from, but after All Japan joined the NWA, the PWF world title was downgraded to a regional championship.
Mitsuharu Misawa had been serving as company President and chief booker, but the two frequently clashed over how the promotion should be run, and in May 2000 Misawa and almost all the roster of Japanese wrestlers quit the company to start Pro Wrestling NOAH with Baba's original business partners the Momota brothers.

I think he meant that he didn't expect any of the wrestling that would be aired on this channel to be good, but I assume when he saw that there was going to be NOAH TV on there he figured that part would be good, which it is.
This Wrestling channel is just the showing the same sort of wrestling that you would get on a low budget local TV channel.

Pro-Wrestling NOAH was established in June 2000, having been formed after a mass exodus from All Japan Pro Wrestling after top star and matchmaker Mitsuharu Misawa had a massive falling out with then All Japan owner, Motoko Baba.
The NOAH in the brand name alludes to the Biblical story of Noah, in which the people and animals in the ark survive the flood and make a new beginning in the world, a story which was seen as a parallel to the wrestlers' departure from All Japan.
NOAH's strong emphasis on in-ring storytelling means that whilst there's little in the way of storylines, interviews and elaborate entrances, you'll certainly receive some of the finest wrestling in the world today.

 Pro Wrestling NOAH on Samurai TV: Navigation 3/23/03   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-11)
This is the sort of match NOAH *could* be having on a regular basis if they truly understood how to make the events of a match matter from week to week and series to series, as the previous generation had done so well.
But, a match like this is all too uncommon, and so any pleasure it creates is tainted by the thought that NOAH could be the best company on the planet, if only they knew what they had in their hands.
But such is NOAH booking - they pull off a fun, insane brawl like this and lay the groundwork for something great (not to mention relatively unique within the company), but instead do fuckall with it.
