NJPW Dominion 2021

All sorts of craziness happening in New Japan these days as Will Ospreay has vacated the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship.  Though the real reason seems unknown (NJPW said it was due to a neck injury, but rumors on the interwebs indicate the gaijins are unhappy with the way the company has handled the COVID situation), we have a main event of Okada vs. Shingo to crown a new champion. 

Away we go.

-Tetsuya Naito vs Great-O-Khan (4/26)
-Toru Yano vs. EVIL (4/28)
-Rappongi 3K vs Suzuki-gun (4/28)

New Japan Cup 2021 USA

Thanks everyone for the great feedback on the Sakura Genesis review.  With a little time until the Dontaku 2021 shows in early May, I figured let’s give the New Japan Cup 2021 USA version a shot.   Plus I know we all enjoy a good tournament around here. Winner of this tournament gets the sweet looking trophy and becomes the first ever Strong Openweight Champion. 

Away we go.
