    Match was good but I was a bit disappointed to be honest, considering how much of a run ZSJ has been on lately. He was great in the NJC and has really felt like a major player and worthy contender lately. I didn't feel like this quite hit those heights. 2022 Okada is probably a big part of the reason why. I do like that it was under 30 minutes though.

    I liked the Sanada/Ospreay/Tanahashi segment. Ospreay's such a prick. Never been a huge Sanada guy but it's a damn shame he has to relinquish the belt so soon after finally winning a championship.

    Glad Cobb & Khan won the tag titles.

    I wish they would have pulled the trigger on ZSJ. So talented. Twice now they he has a fantastic run to win the New Japan Cup to lose to Okada in the title match. Granted those matches are always great matches but man let him have it.

    Currently trying to talk my wife into letting me go early and do a meet and greet with Suzuki and Davy Richards and get a signed pic and photo op.

    So Ospreay is coming to St. Louis with Warrior Wrestling. Not sure I can convince my wife to let me go to yet another show after doing Glory Pro Wrestling in a couple weeks and then Dynamite in June.

    What's interesting here it that NJPW has a show in DC in May that Okada is going to be at. You'd figure the winner of Ospreay vs Mox should be #1 Contender for the winner of Okada vs Naito at the Fukuoka Dome.

    Do they do Okada vs Mox in DC or is that for the rumored AEW vs NJPW show? It's easy to do politically since Mox is both an AEW and NJPW wrestler.

    I thought Ospreay was going after the US title though. I do like your thought process and would like to see Okada vs Mox.

    I also want Danielson in the G1

    He is but the logic behind that was he beat the champion in a singles match so a Mox loss wouldn't change that

    I was reading the results. Sounds like a really good show. I am sure some of the matches will be on AXS at some point. I don't have my subscription right now to New Japan World. I pretty much just restart it for Wrestle Kingdom and then cancel again. I honestly don't have time to squeeze in the shows most of the time. I am glad AXS tv has New Japan again so I can see some matches even if it is down the road a bit. Currently they have been showing matches from the New Japan Cup.

    Juice played the fans but saying he was done with New Japan and his contract was up and he was not going to wrestle anymore or at least not anytime soon.

    Ishii/Tanahashi and the main were really good, although I wanted different winners. Good to see Bad Boy Juice return and Good Brothers being back in front of a Japanese crowd is cool, they still feel like a big deal there. KOPW title feels like it's taking off as something more than just Yano's comedy gimmick now - Shingo vs. Taichi is a fun feud.

    There's a whole bunch of Ibushi tweets coming out that seems to be about NJPW exploiting him and pressuring him to return before he was fully healed from injuries. It's not exactly a secret how Japanese companies exploit their workers, but it's unusual for someone to be so bold about the accusations. He might be done with New Japan after this. Here's the mega thread:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/SquaredCirc...pw_megathread/

    Curious to get Morrison's take on this.

    So I thought Ibushi talking about wrestling being fake might get him blackballed, but now he has just dropped the one word you cannot under any circumstances say in his line of work which is Yakuza.

    I think we've seen the last of pro wrestler Kota Ibushi and hell he might take NJPW with him.

    Yep, just saw the post about mentioning the Yakuza. What a perfect time for AEW and NJPW to start their partnership Maybe Ibushi should get out of the country for a while.

    It seems like he feels like he's been jerked around by this Kikuchi guy since getting hurt during the G1, he feels there is a double standard between how true born NJPW guys are treated and the way guys like him are, and he seems to have a weird relationship with guys like Taichi.

    Japanese company embraces an eccentric free spirit type just once and he tanks the whole industry. Lesson there?

    Sounds like Kidani is siding with Ibushi so that's interesting, and seems like there might be some heads rolling in the New Japan office.
