Sorry the cross reference with the Inui thread on the Sasuke 29 forum where he sent me a picture through twitter that was a "surprise" for ANW. No one can make heads or tails of it.. LOL
Pretty sure that isn't an ANW surprise. The picture was definitely taken at Midoriyama, and since the Sasuke 29 taping is really soon it's more than likely an obstacle test for Sasuke 29.
I think they'll probably bring back the Barrel Climb and/or the Rapid Descent.

I first thought Inui was photo shopping it.. I'm still confused overall as to what that picture was/is. I'm curious when that announcement will be and what the content is. TBS, Inui (Folcom) had a meeting (again check around the same date of that tweet and go backwards) with Comcast. I was hoping to hear that it was directly tied to Sasuke but no.. it was ANW. Then that photo showed up. It's clearly Midoriyama but it was tied to ANW. They test all kinds of stuff all the time there and plenty of time to take it down whatever it was. We still have a few weeks until ANW's final tapes.. but I'm really curious wtf that was.
They're looking for testers if anyone lives in the area or is planning to attend but not competing.
Happy Saturday, ninjas! We are starting the search for Vegas finale testers!! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to test these obstacles! You must be available June 17 - 22. Most of the testing will be done at night to avoid the Vegas sun. Must be over 18. Please message me names and contact info. Thank you kindly!! : D
Kerry Collins posted one in the comrades group but I can't see it since Im not his Facebook friend! Bogus! Almost 3 weeks out and they are starting already is kind of crazy but smarter since last time they were still waiting for paint to dry the day before lol.

Sabrina said testing was starting on the 17th (ish) so they need to get the course up probably a week ahead of time. That being said, they had 1 week to set up a regionals course and 2 week to set up the finals, so it'll be a time crunch for sure.

Let me guess strat, the paint drying a day before was during tester day? I know the sides of the rumbling dice in baltimore were being painted in the morning of testing day. Wasn't even up on the supports when we were going over the rules on the obstacles (it was dried and on the track by the time all of us got that far, well aware of that lol )
