    New Japan Cup 2019 NJNB spoilers

    Today the first entrant was announced when Kota Ibushi returned and said he was staying in NJPW and entering the tournament.


    The winner will face the 68th IWGP Heavyweight Champion Switchblade Jay White in the main event of G1 Supershow in Madison Square Garden.

    Okada's winning the belt back in the Garden then, right? I wonder if ROH get desperate with the AEW thing chopping their roster in half, and they double down on the NJPW deal by putting their World title on Tanahashi or something.

    Tbh White winning feels like a devaluation of the title

    I would not be shocked if Ibushi won and they did a TanaKada tag title challenge at MSG

    I figured they would get to White being champ at some point but I don't think it was the right time yet. I don't know. He has grown on me and all but meh.

    Tana once said that so long as NJPW has Ibushi's, it has a future. Tana just lost and Ibushi agreed to be exclusive.

    Just saying...

    To be fair, Japan is closer to Australia than Florida is

    Somehow I missed that Shota Umino's in this. Too bad he's against Tanahashi. Wanted to see him make it to the second round. But Tanahashi is going to make him look great in that one match. That's a dream opportunity as a young lion.

    i like how tanahashi won his 3 matches all with different moves, neither of which was the high fly flow.

    okada/ishii was one of the best matches of the year, and i liked tanahashi/SANADA a lot too. those would be the two best matches of the tournament. the final was good but not at the level of the semi-final matches; plus that god awful dragon sleeper okada locked has to count against the whole match, it was so bad. SANADA needs to drop that move, it's embarrassing.
