I would've creamed my pants over that match. Would've been a great tag leading into Wrestle Kingdom. Have Ishii beat Makabe again as the outcome, or Honma beat Elgin.
Now that I would pay to see, on top of my usual NJW fee.

Nakamura doing an open challenge for IC title at WK.

Go Shiozaki will debut and answer the challenge.

a WrestleKingdom rematch. They had a very unremarkable match at the 2011 show. Will be interesting to see if this is better if it happens. I'll be delighted for Shio to get a chance to perform on that stage.

In case anyone didn't see this - me and AJ Styles having a very fun chat in Germany. Lots of New Japan talk.

The fact that RPG Vice vs. reDRagon is the main event of tomorrows Korakuen, and not Sydal/Ricochet vs. Young Bucks, leads me to believe that the bucks are going over Sydal/Ricochet. The only reason i can come up with, to why that match isn't the main event, is that they don't want Young Bucks to close the show. But then it's just reDRagon closing instead, unless RPG Vice wins the main event.

Or maybe i'm just looking too much into the match order.

Perhaps just respect for the champions, since the matches all feature pushed teams this time around.

That could very well also just be the case.

Another point i was thinking about, was the fact that the tournament concludes at Power Struggle. That almost guarantees that the winner challenges at Wrestle Kingdom. So wouldn't we pretty much be able to pencil in reDRagon vs. Ricochet & Matt Sydal for Wrestle Kingdom at this point?

There's a chance RPG Vice could beat reDragon but lose to the Dragon Gate boys, leading to a multiman match, as they've done the past two years at WK. I don't think the match order for the semi finals has much to do with the outcomes here though.

http://shop.njpw.co.jp/

There's a button on the side that says click on it for overseas shipping and it will re-direct you to tenso. You can use them or any other site that provides a forwarding service from Japan. I don't know who is the cheapest in terms of shipping and fees so ask around.

You can also order from http://www.njpweurope.com/ if you live in Europe. They ship internationally too.

Any shirt that has a marketing partnership you'll have to get from the Japanese NJPW shop just as a note.
