Night five of Super Juniors is a mixed bag. No-one is getting pumped about Bushi vs Tiger Mask, while Ishimori vs Flip could go either way. The most intriguing contest going in was Will Ospreay vs YOH, which will mark YOH’s first ever main event. It’s a chance for the youngster to build on the promise of his opening performances and prove he’s the real deal as a singles wrestler.

It’s the latest example of the company being able to take advantage of the outstanding popularity of The Bullet Club as New Japan made the surprising decision to allow them to book Cody vs Omega. When you throw in Scurll challenging for the ROH Title and The Bucks for the Trios belts, it’s a Club focused show. Not that all the credit belongs to the BC members. I’m sure lots of people were tuning in for Silas Young vs Kenny King…
