Naito's going back to back. There's no way they don't put the belt on him at WK.

Win the Day!

No real surprises on the list. Kinda over Makabe's old ass in these things though.

Good news, there's English commentary for every show this year.

You're sleeping on EVIL v Okada. If memory serves, EVIL won their match last year in the G1. Could be an awesome one.

Win the Day!

Ishii vs Yano
Could be fun

Evil vs Okada last year, I had Evil winning when I watched the match and exactly the way I saw it happening.

I'm just not a huge fan of EVIL. He is a perfectly good midcard or tag team wrestler but he was carried by much greater performers in his best matches.

And holding up an Okada match as an example of how good someone is is faulty. Okada could get a 4 star match out of Carmella.

Yeah Evil has had some good matches but he doesn't really do it for me for some reason. But he's decent enough.

And oh yeah, I didn't realize we'd be getting Ishii vs. Yano. That should be interesting.

Here's a link to all the cards: https://www.njpw1972.com/30048


Here's the dates for most of the matches any of us might care about. I'm a glutton for punishment so obviously I'm going to watch every second of every match because I have no life. But matches of note:

Omega/Naito
Ibushi/ZSJ

July 19
Naito/Ishii

July 21

A vs. B finals


I have a feeling that Omega vs. Ibushi will also come down to whichever one of them wins will be the B-block finalist. I also have a feeling Kota is going to try to get banned from Budokan again.

Has Omega versus ZSJ ever happened?

I think maybe in a tag team match? But I can't remember them ever having a one-on-one match, at least not in NJPW

Looks like WWE flexed some muscle and got ROH kicked out of MSG.

Quote:While Ring of Honor planned to run a show at Madison Square Garden next year, it looks like that won't be happening.

ROH COO Joe Koff did an interview with PWInsider today where he noted that Madison Square Garden said they were backing out of the show after "communications from WWE." Dave Meltzer reported last Thursday that WWE was doing everything they could to stop the event from happening and that it was possible they would succeed in doing so.

"I’m not going to discuss beyond this statement because I am not going to litigate this in the press," Koff told PWInsider. "We had a deal with [Madison Square] Garden and they then told us they were backing out after communications from the WWE. We are not able to get any other dates in any kind of discussion.

"I’m expecting that our lawyers will be contacting all the parties involved and the best we can hope is that we can find a resolution, so we can bring the kind of energy and excitement that ROH and our partner New Japan to a bigger audience and to bigger arenas and to the fans of New York City."

Sinclair Broadcast Group CEO Chris Ripley first mentioned the show while speaking with the Baltimore Business Journal. It was planned to take place during the Saturday of next year's WrestleMania weekend, with WWE's Hall of Fame ceremony, NXT TakeOver special, and post-Mania Raw and SmackDown scheduled for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

AAA has also been planning to run Madison Square Garden. It's been several decades since anyone other than the McMahon family has promoted a pro wrestling show at the venue.
