-It’s the first night of the tournament to crown new NEVER 6 Man Tag Team Champions. We are live from Tokyo at Korakuen Hall.
– The card for Jingu Stadium is starting to come together. Also the announcement of the KOPW 2020 Title, this could be a great show leading into the G1 in the winter. But tonight, it’s NAGATA vs SUZUKI!
As of checking today the 2019 J Cup isn’t up on New Japan World yet, but the Royal Quest show from last week in London is, so that’s what we’ll look at today. I’ve actually managed to avoid all spoilers for it, so this will be a complete surprise to me. I’m fully expecting J Cup spoilers though, mainly because this show happened after that tournament concluded, but I’ll refrain from writing them here in case you are also holding out to find out what happened (Kind of weird from New Japan actually, you’d think that they’d upload the shows in order because watching this show kind of ruins the J Cup?) If everyone else could please kindly refrain from J Cup spoilers in the comments then that would be nice as well, just in case we have some readers here who are waiting to watch it and don’t want it spoiled. Cheers!
The big match on top of course will be Kazuchika Okada Vs Everyone’s Favourite Angry Old Man Minoru Suzuki, in a match which I am mightily excited for!
So let’s quit my jibber jabbering and watch some chuffing wrestling!
Rev Pro: New York
Date: April 5, 2019
Location: New York Hilton Midtown, New York City, New York
Commentators: Andy Boy Simmonz, Kevin Kelly
I’ve seen these guys twice live and had a good time with each of the shows so this was a must for the list. I don’t really follow their stories all that closely but I know enough of the names to keep up. This show will have a mixture of British wrestling and New Japan so it’s going to be quite the combination. Let’s get to it.

[Preamble: Hello, fellow Doomers! I’m Franco Victor, freelancer and fellow contributor to New Japan coverage on the BOD. I’ll be working around Norrissey’s G1 Climax reviews as well as pitching in for the Night Threads. To wit, I submit to the Blog a review on the recent Main Event at the Great Pirate Festival in Yokohama, only posted to NJPW World a few days ago: feel free to reach out with feedback and what you might want to see from Night Threads.; thanks!]
Odds are you’ve heard of Axxess. It’s the big fan festival put on by WWE every year over Wrestlemania weekend where you can see memorabilia and meet wrestlers etc. However, there’s another version run independently from WWE called WrestleCon, which offers a bunch of wrestling shows but also a huge convention with hundreds of wrestlers and vendors selling autographs, merchandise and photo ops for pretty reasonable prices. You can also just walk up and talk to almost anyone you want (line permitting of course) and have a chat (some longer than others).
