Oh, you forgot there was a New Japan Pro Wrestling iPPV this weekend? We didn’t!
We previewed the show during our WrestleMania Weekend preview podcast and while it doesn’t look like the monster cards we’ve seen in recent NJPW iPPVs, Invasion Attack 2013 still has the potential to be a top 3 show of the weekend.
The most anticipated match is without a doubt the IWGP Heavyweight title rematch between Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada and we can’t help but be a little excited by Shinsuke Nakamura and Davey Boy Smith Jr. for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.
Here’s a rundown of the card and details on our coverage will follow.
