As noted in the CR News at http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/11/24-1/american-network-to-broadcast-new-japan-pro-wrestling-in-2015 and at the Canadian site the Fight Network at http://fightnetwork.com/news/52253:njpw-to-air-on-axs-tv-in-2015/ AXS TV is the latest to pick up TV rights to NJPW which is a good thing with GFW run by Jeff Jarrett showing the Wrestle Kingdom PPV with Jim Ross on commentary.

Fight Network has a Japanese Audio Podcast as noted on the forums and does go over the recent NJPW news at http://fightnetwork.com/news/52039:nov.-2014-edition-of-japanese-audio-wrestling/ Here was also the news of Jim Ross at http://fightnetwork.com/news/51928:gfw-announces-jim-ross-to-call-njpw-tokyo-dome/ while here is the GFW video and press release at http://globalforcewrestling.com/jimross/

For a great review of episode 2 and 3 on AXS a review podcast is nicely done at http://fightnetwork.com/news/53805:review-a-wai-njpw-on-axs-tv-episodes-2-3/ giving extra input since Mauro used to work for the Fight Network and the reviewers worked with him in the past.
