NJPW Kizuna Road (17/6/18) Review

I’ve been going back and forth on reviewing this show as it is headlined by someone I believe to be scum. However, there is a solid undercard to blab about, so I’ve decided to go ahead with it. Just don’t expect me to focus on the piece of shit.

NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors Night Four (22/5/18) Review

Night four and we’re back to the full production. We also have a big main event as we finally get a Hiromu Takahashi vs El Desperado singles match. Those two have been teeing off on each other for a while and have developed a bit of a blood feud. Let’s see what they go do one on one.

NJPW Road To Wrestling Dontaku 27/4/18 Review

Not Goto’s best look. Credit: NJPW

I understand New Japan splitting up their big matches onto multiple cards from a business point of view. More shows = more tickets = more money. However, when it comes to valuing my time, it’s an awful decision. Particularly when it means I have to sit through another card packed with nothing multi-man tags and Suzuki-gun antics. It’s a good thing I have Goto and Juice to enjoy.

NJPW Road To Wrestling Dontaku (24/4/18) Review

That will hurt. Credit: NJPW

In a lot of ways, this card is a mirror image of the one from the night before. While the matches have had a few tweaks, they’re hitting the same storyline beats, and in reality, it’s all about the main event – or at least it was. Because then they only went and added Ishii vs Henare. I’ve been calling for that since Tag League, suddenly, I’m quite excited.

Quick note: I’m going to change things up slightly and replace the pictures with NJPW’s post-match interviews. They’re an important part of the company’s storytelling, so it seems fitting.

NJPW Road To Wrestling Dontaku 23/4/18 Review

I like this move. Credit: NJPW

After a short break, New Japan is back with a long old tour. With business being up, those in charge have realised that rather than selling out one super card, they can instead sell out multiple decent ones. That’s how we end up with the Junior Tag Titles main eventing. Not that we should complain too much, we all love wrestling, right? More of it can only be a good thing.

NJPW New Japan Cup Final (21/3/18) Review

Not the orienteering holiday Tana had in mind. Credit: NJPW

I can’t imagine anyone was coming into this year’s New Japan Cup expecting it to be as good as it has been. There have been a handful of world-class matches combined with some great stories. In the undercard alone we got Naito vs Suzuki. Then the tournament saw the return of Tanahashi and the blossoming of Zack Sabre Jr. The question is, which one of those two is going to be hoisting that trophy and taking the title shot that comes along with it? Let’s dish out some stars.
