King of Sports: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Depends how behind you are but matches defo worth going out of your way to watch since the G1 Finals are:


-Tanahashi vs ZSJ at Destruction in Hiroshima

-Omega vs Juice at Destruction in Kobe

-Okada vs Evil at KOPW

-Ishii vs Naito at KOPW

-KUSHIDA vs Ospreay at KOPW

-BUSHI & Hiromu vs Dragon Lee & Titan at a Road To Power Struggle

-Beretta vs Omega at Power Struggle

-Tanahashi vs Ibushi at Power Struggle


I'd highly recommend watching most of King of Pro Wrestling and Power Struggle really.

So im thinking EVIL/Sanada in block A and either K.E.S./War Machine/G.O.D. from Block B with LIJ taking the whole shebang.


But god do I want the Best Friends to win.

According to the Twitter of Hiromu Takahashi, Darryl Takahashi Jr., the son of his stuffed animal pet and his stuffed animal pet’s wife Carol, was born on 12/3
Here's the video Hiromu put together for him:

World Tag League Finals spoilers:


The angle they did after the Omega match was great. Was legit shocked to see blood. Wasn't legit spoiled to see Jericho, though, because I got spoiled on reddit. Some stupid ass title like '[NJPW Spoiler] Title challenger finally appears'. Gee, I wonder what that could be about.


Anyways, it was really cool and it served it's purpose because by the time the crowd saw Jericho they were cheering him and by the end they were booing.

Anyone who says that the heel and face dynamic should be abolished clearly did not see that Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho angle. That was old school wrestling 101 and I loved it.


Question: Kenny Omega was a heel before this angle, right?
