King of Sports: New Japan Pro-Wrestling Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I just realized...the IWGP Heavyweight title is the only Championship that Okada has ever held in his career. That certainly makes him one of a kind

*Censored*, that sucks. I noticed he grabbed his knee when he fell out of the ring in the Rush match but I didn't think it was anything that serious. Wonder if they changed the finish because of it, the match did end kinda abruptly, I thought.

 

 

'At least 6 months' doesn't sound good as far as the G1 is concerned.

I think the Bucks will join Kenny and split from the Bullet Club, if anything the Elite sells merch, along with the Bullet Club, seems the best way to keep both factions together but now apart.

Tama loves the Elite, though! FTE!

 

Anyways, got *censored*ing spoiled on the post main event shenenigans from some douchebag on youtube who posted a video called 'KENNY OMEGA FIRED FROM BULLET CLUB IBUSHI SAVES' or something like that. What an awesome segment, though. Jay White vs Kenny was really great too and so was Tanahashi vs Suzuki, hope Tana recovers until the Australia shows, or just take him out of that altogether and let the man rest!

I think we got spoiled by the same vid.

 

Maybe they'll even go their own way and Bullet Club gets scattered across the roster in three factions, led by Cody, Tama and Kenny. I don't know.

 

There's only one man that can bring the Bullet Club together - Mr. Juicy Gino Gambino!

Strong Style Evolved tickets sold out in 20 minutes. Ho-ly-shit. I did not expect that at all. I think this proves New Japan could sell out a 10k arena in the US. Over 4.5k tickets sold to a non WWE show with no matches announced is incredible, let alone in 20 minutes.

I don't see Young Bucks vs Golden Lovers at all, I think in the end the Bucks will stick with Kenny and also they wouldn't book two Juniors against two Heavyweights. Although with the Bucks losing the straps it might be time for them to join the big bois...

 

But yeah I think Naito vs Jericho is pretty much a lock and I think we'll either see Golden Lovers vs Cody & Hangman or Cody vs Kenny.


Ok, that was the best BTE episode yet. My heart skipped a beat at the end.

 

Shut up.
