The first part of our conversation with Makoto Abe was hugely popular a few weeks ago, and while he’s still the source of wanted aggression from EVIL,
Abe’s still putting in the work in bringing you every single NJPW event on the road and on the screen.
I can focus on getting the job done here
–So we have two Japanese ring announcers in NJPW. Yourself, and your senior, Kimihiko Ozaki.
Abe: Yeah. Ozaki is the same age as NJPW itself, 49, so five years older than me.
–What sort of things did Ozaki teach you.
Abe: Oh, the NJPW way of doing ring out counts, counting along with the referee, things like that.
–Is it safe to say you’re kind of a mix of the AJPW and NJPW styles?
Abe: Yeah, I’d say so. Plus I take some stuff from the announcers I used to hear as a kid. After I got a taste for the job and fell in love with it,
I went and did more homework, listened to some of the classic calls. Guys like Kero Tanaka.
–Tanaka is a real legendary figure, of course. He left NJPW in 2006,
but came back to announce the title match at our 40th anniversary event between kazuchika Okada and Tetsuya Naito, and for Jyushin Thunder Liger’s farewell.
Abe: He was a real trailblazer, I think.

–What was the biggest surprise to you coming into NJPW?
Abe: I think the size of the operation, when it comes to the number of wrestlers, and the number of employees.
And everybody knows their role and can do it properly and effectively.
That means I can really focus on my job, whether that’s ring announcing or putting the ring up and transporting it.
–A lot of the wrestling world is about doing half a dozen jobs at once.
Abe: Oh yeah. I’ve had to sell merch in the past as well,
or I’d be at the timekeeper’s table calculating the merch take for the night so I can provide a report the next morning (laughs).
Of course that means you can’t put all you have into any aspect of your work.
