NJPW The New Beginning 2020 *contains Wrestle Kingdom 14 SPOILERS*


Recommended Posts

Looking forward to both, more so Jon Moxley vs. Minoru Suzuki. That's a match I've wanted to see since Moxley joined New Japan Pro Wrestling.

😍 This leads to a Taichi/Okada main event. Can't wait.

And going off of the NYD tag match, both EVIL/Ishii and particularly Goto/Shingo will be lovely.

On the other hand, those NJPW in US shows can kiss my ass. I'll watch the Zayne matches out of curiosity, with a close eye on the Rock 'n' Roll six man.

Will be interesting to see how many tickets they end up selling in USA and if they manage to fill Osaka Jo Hall with that hot card.

I think the Durham Armory only seats 900 so not going to be big sales there.

what's a Gabriel Kidd?

UK guy that was accepted into LA Dojo by Shibata on some RevPro show, this happened like 6 - 8 months ago. I think he was on some Japan shows after that near the ringside with other young lions.

He wasn't good when I saw him but that was like 2-3 ago when he was still 18-19 years old. I'd guess that if he didn't improve then Shibata wouldn't have taken him.

The Japan shows look fun.

The USA shows look breathtakingly dull.  I’m not sure these even qualify as glorified as house shows.  They’re just house shows.  I guess if you want to see Tanahashi, Ibushi, Nagata, or Kojima run through the motions in person bad enough, then it’s worth it, but I couldn’t imagine paying good money to see them beat the Bullet Club B-team and some Young Lions.

If this is what the US expansion was all about (and without TV, this is pretty much all it’s ever gonna be), you wonder if it was even worth it.

I’ll go to any shows they run in the Bay Area but I’m certainly not traveling. The cheapest tickets are $30 and the shows won’t sell out so just go with those. It’s gonna be a good quality show, but yeah, definitely nothing to write home about.

Apparently Osaka Jo Hall is already sold out 😣

I guess that's going to be a mega show with the Olympics playing with the schedule. In fact do we know when other things are set to happen like G1 etc.?

My friend went to Lawson to buy tickets and they were all sold out. It's possible that only the 2nd floor seats (the ones in our price range) were sold out.
