    omega/tanahashi is the most i've looked forward to a dome main event. fresh match up, will almost certainly deliver in the ring, atmosphere will be nuts.

    My guess on the rest of the card:

    NEVER Title: Goto vs EVIL or something like that
    Rev Pro title Ishii vs ZSJ
    US title: Cody vs Goto
    Tag titles: GoD vs Bucks

    Leaves Ibushi Scurll and Page with nothing to do though. Maybe a four-way six-man match or some shit. They should do Ospreys vs ibushi for the lulz

    Really hope Ospreay is good for that rumored ibushi match. Would like to see zsj/evil paid off here too. Juice and sanada both deserve a highlighted match, maybe triple threat with Cody for the us title

    didnt goto call out ibushi already? almost feels like theyre punting the ospreay match cause why else announce the cancellation of the never title match at power struggle and then rebook it with goto if ospreay could go sometime soon? do we think goto's call out is ignored or the title match happens between now and the road to the tokyo dome show?

    Fantasy booking is that it’s a way to get the belt on ibushi for Ospreay to challenge.

    yeah, i get that. so ibushi beats goto by the time the road to show is done so they can book the ospreay match for january 4th?

    ive never paid much attention to this time of the year for new japan before, are lower card singles title matches booked to take place this late, let alone a title change?

    I think Goto called out Ospreay and then said that he wanted Ibushi after but I could have misread the interview my Japanese is slipping.

    Well this is a bit of a Rev Pro spoiler, but we can add Tomohiro Ishii defending the Undisputed British Heavyweight Championship against Zack Sabre Jr to this card.

    love it, especially since sabre tapped him in the g1. if ibushi/ospreay ends up happening the middle of this card is gonna be fantastic.

    Ibushi/Ospreay (likely)
    ZSJ/Ishii
    Jay White/Okada
    Ishimori/KUSHIDA
    Jericho/Naito
    Omega/Tanahashi

    that's a nuts lineup. the junior tag match is nothing special but should be at least fun. heavyweight tag title match has delivered on this show recently, GoD are improving and i imagine will deliver again. maybe cody/juice, and i suspect juice will want to turn in a strong performance at the dome. could easily be the best wrestle kingdom yet.

    ospreay/taichi announced for tomorrow's tag league final for NEVER number one contendership. ibushi/ospreay seems even more of a lock now.

    What are the important matches to watch to build to the card? Haven't seen any NJPW since last Wrestle Kingdom but have a bit of time this month to get caught up before this event. Card looks great.

    I'd recommend the G1 Final, Golden Lovers vs Ishii/Ospreay, Okada vs Tanahashi from September, Jericho vs Naito from Dominion.

    If you haven't seen Okada vs Kenny 2 out of 3 falls that really should be on your list.

    It doesn't play a massive role in WK other than its the start of Kenny's reign. But it's a beautiful match

    Predicts:

    Tana
    Okada
    Naito
    ibushi
    Ishimori
    juice
    Zsj
    LIJ
    Suzuki-Gun

    Basically a goodbye to all the Elite Wrestling and WWE-bound talent.

    I was thinking that but then it’d be a full LIJ sweep

    They somehow commissioned a worse theme song than that shitty rap song from 2 years ago

    After watching today's main event I am so god damned hyped for this show now. Tana/Ospreay vs Golden Lovers was awesome. Best tag I've seen this year.

    it was a phenomenal match, loved every second of it tbh. that shot of Ibushi turning to see osprey had landed on his feet is the best bit of camera work in wrestling this year.

    watched the first road to show. gedo/okada was a lot of fun and the main event was great as a match and a tease for the dome.

    the shingo singles match was also really good.

    heck of a weekend. these road to shows with the main event tag i haven't seen yet but is getting MOTYC press, the awesome ROH show, FOTY candidate just happened on UFC prelim.

    That's interesting. It would seem he fully intends to be at Madison Square Garden unlike the rest of the Elite guys. Which raises all kinds of political questions between NJPW, ROH, and AEW that really comes down to how nice AEW and ROH end up playing together. No one knows the answer to that right now.

    I've enjoyed reading the build with Omega and Tanahashi. Two different kind of heroes with both thinking the other's ideology is a pretence. Looking forward to how they approach the match, either could put the black hat on or they could play it pure. Interesting. Tanahashi is a genius so I'm expecting a classic, that brain channeling Omega's ideas and athleticism, on this stage. Tanahashi wins though right? Ace vs. Alpha in the Garden for the IWGP Heavyweight title, that's the main event to garner the buzz for me. Or Tanahashi vs. Okada in the US.

    Okada beats Jay White. It's a bit too soon for White to get the win. Beat Okada in the Dome and you commit him to the main events full time. There's no need to rush that. Give him a NJ Cup win for his next bit of progression, getting his win back in the final maybe. Build has been great, the arc since New Year Dash has been meticulously class.

    Naito beats Jericho. Needs a big Dome win does Naito. Here it is. Jericho moves on to challenge for the big one, Naito loses it soon to Sabre Jr or White, and moves on to the heavyweight title later in the year. Can see Okada winning the G1, Naito beating the champ in it and winning his title match to set up Dome Part 3 and finally vanquishing Okada there.

    Ishii beats Sabre Jr. ZSJ will be challenging for the bigger titles in due course. Saying that, I guess he could win and still challenge elsewhere. Ishii winning would be big for his career whereas ZSJ has plenty of time to heat up.

    Ishimori beats KUSHIDA. Lock of the card? With Ospreay gone to HW, Scurll probably done soon to head to AEW and Hiromu out, the juniors need somebody else on the top level.

    Juice beats Cody. Also a lock. Simple storytelling for Cody's swansong. Hopefully be a good old school redemption story with Cody heeling it and Juice overcoming.

    Junior tag, probably LIJ? Will be a title change and Sho/Yoh won the first match.

    LIJ for the main tag too. Bucks on the way out, GOD could retain but the LIJ sweep with Takahashi joining them in celebration is the play.

    Ibushi vs. Ospreay should be bonkers. Insane opener. Ibushi should win since he has potential to be a main eventer and shouldn't really be losing to basically a junior. You never know though, he could be done immediately after. It's Ibushi.

    Crazy card, isn't it. Everything but the tags and Juice/Cody have greatness potential.

    can't think of a more loaded new japan card. you have some of the better full g1 shows from 2014 and 2013 but those are different things and you don't have the really big feeling matches. dominion has been outrageously stacked at the top the last couple years but still is usually light on the undercard. and this is definitely the best of the wrestle kingdom cards on paper, as good as many were.

    They've already sold more tickets than last year. If walk up is as heavy as they anticipate the show will likely sell out.

    Now I got to remember how I did the screencast to my tv. I did it with my iPad which I don't have anymore last time. Who is organizing a chat? Not me. I am going to do be doing good to get set up for the night and stay awake.

    Well Cewsh apparently has to work, so he's out. I figure Skype or Discord would be the best option.

    Yeah I didn't get my nap in. Oh well. Coffee in hand.

    I have skype by the way if that is the way to go. I forgot what platform we used last year. Then again there may only be a few of us around.

    That was a fun opener. Not quite RAMBO fun, but a good showing for all the dudes not on the card. Was a bit shocked to see The Elite go so early.
