(Editor’s Note: You know you’ve made it as a website when you get an exclusive interview with a stuffed cat. PWH contributor Erich Pilcher worked out this entire interview. Through all of or efforts, due to his connections online to NJPW, we’ve concluded that this presence of Daryl Takahashi on Facebook is in fact an accurate account, and therefore have brought you this exclusive interview with the LIJ star.)
It is safe to say that NJPW has taken the wrestling world by storm. With it’s athletically sound wrestlers and strong style approach; NJPW has become a top global pro wrestling entity. NJPW also has a diverse group of stables. The Bullet Club and Los Ingobernables de Japon are arguably the top two stables.
LJI with its bizarre group of G1 winner Naito, SANADA, BUSHI, EVIL and Hiromu Takahashi have become a major player globally. One member has taken the world by storm. Daryl Takahashi is the companion of Hirmou. Since joining him, Daryl has become a global star.
During the G1 tournament, Daryl was savagely beaten by Bad Luck Fale. Many thought this was the end of the pro wrestling world’s favorite companion. Daryl however showed resolve and came back stronger than ever (Not even a recent attack in ROH by the Young Bucks and Cody could keep him down).
Daryl sat down with PWHaven to discuss Lij, his relationship with his stablemates, his thoughts on The Bullet Club and more.
How did you meet Hiromu Takahashi?
Ahhhhh. I meet Hiromu in most special way. I was once homeless kitty who live on streets of Osaka. Hiromu find me eating old udon out of trash and pick me up. Nobody picked me up because I was so dirty and smelly. Hiromu rescue me and promise to make Puroresu superstar. He change my life forever and feed me fresh udon. Also watermelon.
How have you enjoyed your time with Takahashi and LIJ?
I llike LIJ. We are all strange. NAITO Strange, but nice. HIROMU strange, but love me. BUSHI very, very strange, but is kind. SANADA strange, but secretly like me. EVIL is strange, but he stay away from me. I am scared of EVIL. They all feed me good food, except EVIL. I think he jealous of my soft kitty body and pretty face.
What did you think of Naito winning the G1 Tournament?
I was so proud of Mr. Naito for winning G1 Climax! Who else could have won?! Nobody in New Japan is better! Although, my friend, he is lucky his friend Daryl was not in the tournament!
Will Naito keep his Challenge Rights to Wrestle Kingdom?
Naito will continue to hold his right to fight in the main event of Tokyo Dome… As long as he doesn’t give me a challenge!
How do you feel about the Bullet Club and Bad Luck Fale?
YOU DARE ASK ABOUT BAD LUCK FALE AND BULLY CLUB?! I HATE CHUBBY FALE AND HIS STUPID HEAD TATTOO RACING STRIPE! ALL OF BULLY CLUB IS JOKE ME AND HIROMU LAUGH ALL NIGHT LONG AT THEM!! I hate Club and Fale and they will be dead soon.
Why do you think The Bullet Club has it out for you?
Club is after me and LIJ because they know we better and make more money than them! They are no longer champion sales in New Japan Pro Wrestling!! Plus, we all have bigger private parts than all of stupid Club.
Who are you angrier at, The Young Bucks or Fale?
Who I hate more, Bucks or Fale?? Bucks are pretty, but they just hurt my neck and tell me to suck it. FALE RIP MY WHOLE BODY IN HALF THROW ME IN THE AIR AND STOMP ME INTO NAITO BACK!! I WANT TO DO PEE PEE IN FALE BEARD! I WIPE MY BOTTOM ON HIS GLASSES!!
Would you be willing to take Kenny Omega on in a one on one match?
Kenny, Kenny, Kenny. Hmmmm. He challenge me to match? But I ask how his knee really is? I only want a match when he is ready… and when he is ready I WILL EMBARRASS HIM IN FRONT OF JAPAN AND ALL THE WORLD! MR. GLOBAL STAR WILL FALL TO THE DARYL CLUB!
What does the rest of the year hold for you, Takahashi and the rest of LIJ?
The rest of year for me and LIJ is bright and long. We will eat all the foods together and win all championships together. Hiromu will bring home belt-San again so I have nice shiny pillow. Also at WRESTLE KINGDOM, NAITO BECOME CHAMPION OF THE WORLD. Hopefully EVIL will be nicer too.
Anything to add?
I would just like to add that I love my fans and they are all cooler than Bullet Club. I am also scared of bird mask Marty. Please add me on the FACEBOOK page, so you can praise me!! Also WILL OSPREAY I WILL CLAW YOUR EYES OUT OF YOUR BODY AND YOU WILL NEVER BE CAT LIKE ME THAT HIROMU LIKE SO GO AWAY. ALSO FALE SHUT UP WITH UNDERBOSS GLASSES I AM NOT BUY THEM FROM YOU. BECAUSE I HATE YOU!!
P.S HIROMU THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME SO HAPPY IN LIFE I LOVE YOU FOREVER MY BEST OF FRIENDS!
