I haven’t watched as much wrestling as I would have liked this month (which is still too much wrestling by most people’s standards), so this is sadly another New Japan heavy list. It’s not as fun doing that, as I imagine most people will have seen these matches, but I do also suspect it happens because, well, NJPW puts on the best wrestling.

We’ve got a main-event of SHO vs Dragon Lee, a technical battle between Gresham and Taka plus the continued warpath of Shingo Takagi. You’d be mad to miss it.
