Might as well add Dragon Lee vs BotSJ winner.

I think that Dominion is too close to the end of the BOSJ tour for that match, they'll do it, but I'm just thinking safety-wise. Could do the title match on the G1 final.

It's not out of the question that Dragon Lee won't *be* the BOSJ winner, given how the blocks set up.

Yeah, but if he wins who challenges him?

Oh.

I'll have to keep a close eye on how the feud goes leading up to it, but Okada/Jericho is one of the most foregone conclusion matches I've seen announced recently.  With him being in AEW plus where he's at in his career I have a hard time suspending disbelief at the idea of Jericho having a chance.  But the other two matches sound really good so I have them to look forward to.

Oh.

I doubt Hiromu goes straight to the belt coming back, but it wouldn't surprise me it he does his "Comeback" match at the BOSJ Finals, Dragon Lee go over someone here, and them set up the match for King of Pro Wrestling or Power Struggle.

Ospreay challenged Dragon Lee after winning the BOSJ final but nothing updated on the NJPW site yet. Majority of the card is still unannounced other than the three matches we already know are happening.

They never update right after a card.  They'll update mid-day JST so we'll get it some time in the morning EST.

I could wait until the press conference and then we could talk about the actual match, or lack of one, but I want to hope right now. Shingo versus... Goto? That'd be nice.

I've been wanting Shingo to go heavy since he walked in the door (I don't believe he's under 220 anyway).  So yes please, give him Goto or some other bomb thrower that can go.

SHINGO V ISHII

If only Ishii wasn't stuck with carrying Taichi on Sunday....

 

I kid, Taichi's decent.

Hey, I said he was decent.  That's a damn spot more than you'd get out of me a year ago.

I'd like to see Shingo vs. the winner of Ishii/Taichi for the Never Openweight title, then moving to the heavyweight division.

He will probably beat the winner of Taichi and Ishii and hopefully hold that belt until people forget he came in as a junior. But nobody memorable holds that belt for long.

I like it as a springboard from junior to heavyweight.

NEVER Openweight Championship has grown on me for the Openweight criteria. Not big into it though. Probably has more value to say the IWGP United States Championship. Clearly the IWGP Intercontinental Championship is the most prestigious of the secondary straps.

Moxley/Umino, Kojima/Shingo, Tacos/Liger vs ZSJ/Suzuki, Tana/Juice/Taguchi vs White/Owens/Ishimori, Ishii/Taichi, GOD vs Sanada/EVIL, D Lee/Ospreay, Ibushi/Naito, Okada/Jericho. Odd use of Moxley, but that's a big match for Umino.

Oh and the main event is an Iron Man between Tenzan and Nakanishi of course. Out back on some mats setup by fans.

Shingo-Kojima has given me a heart erection. Feels like an unofficial G1 qualifier.

I want them both. We're down Kenny, Page, and Elgin for sure, while Tama has said he doesn't want to do it. Let Kojima announce that this is his last go, and you still have room to add Ospreay, Shingo, Cobb (if you want an ROH rep and don't want Rush dropping falls).

Anyway, I loved that Juice/Moxley was 50% punches and lariats, so I'm stoked to see Kojima and Shingo dispense with the punches while still upping that percentage.

Shingo throws good punches. So, you might see some.
