Thoughts leading into this show
There is a lot of tag matches on this show but they are still setting up the Okada vs Tanahashi match that will headline the tour. I’m also really looking forward to the Minoru Suzuki vs Tetsuya Naito match, of course. Minoru Suzuki is amazing and seems to be getting better every time I see him wrestle and Tetsuya Naito is easily one of the best wrestlers in NJPW today, if not the world. The Never Openweight Championship Match should be a good opportunity for Taichi to really show NJPW fans what he’s made of as he’s facing the much stronger and much more hard hitting, Hirooki Goto.
