Thoughts leading into this show

This will be a fun show with the headlining match being the return of Satoshi Kojima in an 8-Man Tag Match. I’m a big Kojima fan but I’m not sure if this should be the main event, I suppose we’ll see what NJPW have planned. I am looking forward to the semi main event with Will Ospreay teaming with Beretta, Yano and Ishii to take on The Bullet Club. This is probably the “Road To” show that I’m looking forward to the least but I am excited and intrigued to see Satoshi Kojima return.

HINT: NJPW charges at the beginning of the month, like mist Japanese subscription services, so your best time to subscribe is early in the month. NJPW World is ¥999 per month which is less than the WWE Network and about the same price as Netflix.
