IWGP Jr Heavyweight Championship match – Will Ospreay vs Hiromu Takahashi
It came down to a very close Best Of The Super Jr’s this year with the final two days seeing the Block A final of Taiji Ishimori vs YOH (of Roppongi 3K with SHO and Rocky Romero) and Block B finals Kushida vs Hiromu Takahashi on day one. The two winners face each other on day two, with another stacked card of top talent, except Kenny Omega. I’m not here to go into detail about those matches here, needless to say the two days of bosj finals were packed with blow away matches but at the end of day 2 and after the final match of this year tournament Takahashi was the victor and in his post match speech said he doesnt really like the post Super Jr’s winning speeches, he then goes on to say how he is at the pinnacle of Jr Heavyweight wrestling. Hiromu puts over Liger for being “The Super Jr” then says his dream hasn’t changed and he still wants to hold the Jr Heavyweight title and the Heavyweight title at the same time but to do that he needs to challenge Ospreay at Dominion. Will Ospreay came to the ring and stated he has alreay beaten Hiromu twice and he’ll gladly accept his challenge. I hope the story here isn’t that Will is going into this match cocky and under prepared for this BOSJ winning Hiromu on a roll because I really like Will with this championship and feel the reign is making him somewhat but either way the match at dominion will be nail biting and ill be on the edge of my seat the whole time. I’m looking forward to this one a lot.
Bullet Club vs Tanahashi, Jushin Thunder Liger and Rey Mysterio
This match was set up when Marty Scurll and Yujiro Takahashi beat Tanahashi and Henare in a tag match on night two. After the match Marty continued to beat down Tanahashi when Liger, on commentary, had enough. Liger got in the ring and saved Tanahashi from any further beating, which Scull was not happy with. On Marty’s way out of Korakuen hall he challenged Liger, Tanahashi and any other legend and then stormed out. Later on commentary Liger hinted at a 6 man tag match teaming with Tanahashi and Rey Mysterio vs Marty, Yujiro Takahashi and a 3rd Bullet Club member, probably Chase Owens although this isn’t officially on the line up at the time of writing this but is more than very likely to happen.
