NJPW Match Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

Would appreciate some help here.

 

Our promotion is bringing in NJPW workers in conjunction with ROH for our next show.

 

Fans are asking what matches they should watch to "study up" on these guys to get excited for the event.

 

What are the best representative matches you can suggest to best showcase these guys?

 

- Okada
- Tanahashi
- Nakamura
- Watanabe
- Karl Anderson
- Kushida & Alex Shelley

 

Thanks!

The odd match lover in me really wants to see Booker T vs Okada.

Booker won't be wrestling.

 

New Japan guys will all be competing against BCW guys in a series of sort.

I can't find a Youtube or Dailymotion but direct them to the Nakamura/Minoru Suzuki match from (I think) last year. Somebody has to have a file.
