Anyone else been watching the New Japan Cup 2015 these past few weeks?

 

Kota Ibushi ended up winning the entire thing earlier today.

 

Cody Hall, son of Scott Hall also had his first few matches in NJPW this past week during those shows. He's obviously very raw in the ring but he didn't do too bad.

Looks like the Kingdom is back for another short tour in NJPW.

 

After The final day of the New Japan Cup 2015, i was kinda expecting to see Honma vs. Shibata on this card but maybe they are saving that for later.

I always thought Ibushi was winning, but I found it weird that he challenged for the IWGP title, thought he would want revenge against Nakamura. Oh well, maybe they're saving that rematch for when they want him to actually win a title.

 

Nakamura vs. Tanahashi on this week's AXS TV show. I only wish the show was more current, but the plan is to get there, so I understand. I love Ranallo and Barnett, hope they become NJPW's voices full time, even in PPVs.

 

ps.: Also, never forget this masterpiece.

I am thoroughly enjoying Ranallo and Barnett calling these NJPW matches from 2013 and what-not. Very educational for me who has just started watching NJPW since WK9.

Wrestling fans around the world have been buzzing since the announcement that New Japan Pro Wrestling talent will be appearing on Four Ring of Honor shows in May of this year. The first two nights in will be “War of The Worlds” and will take place Tuesday May 12th and Wednesday May 13th, 2015 at the legendary 2300 Arena deep in the heart of South Philadelphia Pa. The May 13th show is SOLD OUT but there are still tickets available for the May 12th event. The 3rd and 4th nights will be “Global Wars” on Friday, May 15th and Saturday, May 16th at the historic Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto, Canada.

 

Tickets are still available for both nights in Toronto but they are going fast! New Japan Pro Wrestling will be represented by their very finest at these massive events. We will be announcing the full roster of talent at www.rohwrestling.com. The first confirmed NJPW Superstar is:

 

Hiroshi Tanahashi

 

The former seven time IWGP Heavyweight Champion is coming back to Ring of Honor. Tanahashi is viewed by many as one of the absolute finest wrestlers to ever grace the squared circle. This May, Tanahashi will return to face the very best of the ROH roster with the goal of proving the he is still the very best on the planet.

 

In addition to being a former IWGP Intercontinental Champion, Tanahashi has also held the IWGP Tag Team Championships on two occasions. His record setting seven reigns as IWGP Heavyweight Champion puts him at the top of the list as potentially the greatest IWGP Heavyweight Champion of all time in the illustrious history of the organization.

 

Regardless of Tanahashi's opponents at the ROH events, Tanahashi will without a doubt be facing the very best. Whom do you want to see him face? Let your voice be heard. Take the social media and let ring of Honor know which ROH stars you would like to see the legendary Hiroshi Tanahashi face!

 

Very few tickets to these historic events remain for these events so get your tickets now! Don’t miss these epic once in a lifetime shows.

Okada was also announced. I do hope they bring someone new though. I've been saying for a while that Hirooki Goto would be a GREAT ROH Champion, and it's not like he's doing much on NJPW, so it would be a nice thing for both companies.
