Thoughts leading into this show

Kenny Omega has said in an interview before that he loves to work with Ishii but he doesn’t get too many chances outside of the G1. With Kenny being IWGP Heavyweight Champion he will get the opportunity to work with many different people on the NJPW roster as long as he holds that belt. I’m really looking forward to this championship match as thier G1 match was soo good. The build continues with Tanahashi and Okada in the semi main event but one match I have my eye on is match 4, Ospreay and the Best Friends vs Chase Yujiro Takahashi and Kota. I’m sure, being the fourth match on the card, they won’t get a hell of a lot of time but I’m very excited to see Kota in the ring with Will Ospreay. Also, the 8-Man tag with LIJ facing Suzuki-gun, I’m looking forward to seeing ZSJ facing off with SANADA after the G1.

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.
