Osaka-jo Hall
Osaka, Japan

Watch: NJPW World

Meet our previewers

John Carroll: John is Back on Their Bullshit™, aka on their way to another anime convention as you’re probably reading this. They will again host a Japanese Pro Wrestling panel and try to convert the otaku masses into DDT stans via yakitori champions and Konosuke Takeshita. Go check out their Twitter @toshanshuinla if you want to see how that went and if they’ve lost any money gambling since this con is in Atlantic friggin’ City (note: yes).

Alex Wendland: VOW’s utility player. No longer has a beat, but you might recognize him from the golden era of NXT coverage…or was it the coverage of the golden era of NXT? Probably both. Anyway, now he fills gaps in the schedule because he’s too busy and NXT happened to stink when he first got real busy. Related: don’t buy a house. Twitter for nonsense and retweets: @AlexWendland

Rich Kraetsch: VOW founder, co-owner and ½ of the Voices of Wrestling flagship podcast. Also recommends you avoid buying a house unless you want to spend every free moment working on a garden. Follow him on Twitter @VoicesWrestling.

David Finlay, Shota Umino and Tomoyuki Oka vs. Hirai Kawato, Katsuya Kitamura and Tetsuhiro Yagi

John Carroll: Okay, seriously, who did David Finlay piss off to get stuck in this spot he’s in? He’s not supposed to be a young lion anymore (even though he never beats anyone but other young lions and Gedo that one time….) but here he is jerking the curtain with the young lions. I don’t even know anymore man. As far as this crop of babies goes, I think we’ve all kind of turned the corner on them in the last few months. You’ve got the two big lads Oka & Kitamura, you’ve got Kawato who is the wily veteran of the group now, you’ve got Red Shoes’ kid trying extra hard to prove himself, and now you’ve got Yagi (unfortunately not a baker or a fisherman) as the new guy. This is the highest number of native young lions we’ve had simultaneously in quite a number of years, which is exciting on its own and bodes well for the future. In the meantime, this match will probably have a lot of dropkicks. Prediction: Finlay, Umino & Oka

Alex Wendland: As always, this will be a fun 10 minutes and be exactly like the other 12 six-man tags the young lions have opened shows with. Just for fun, David Finlay should wear his old black trunks and go full young lion–maybe even win with a Boston crab. More than that, I hope Finlay runs through this match like a freight train to separate himself from young liondom for good. Should be a fine opener. Prediction: Finlay, Umino & Oka

Rich Kraetsch: The literal children of NJPW…. And David Finlay. Boy, does he stick out like a sore throat mucking it up with these guys. It looks even worse when the likes of Umino and Yagi start getting involved in openers as you can make a case that it’s now two or three generations of young lions that have come into the company since Finlay. I’m all in favor of David Finlay, Young Lion Killer, if that’s a route they take but him just being “a guy” in the whirlwind of NJPW’s up and coming talents is an odd spot to be in. Figure something out with Finlay because he’s wasting away. Prediction: Finlay, Umino & Oka

Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Jushin Thunder Liger, Manabu Nakanishi and Satoshi Kojima vs. Tiger Mask, Tiger Mask W, Togi Makabe and Yuji Nagata

John Carroll: It must be a big show, so it’s time to play How Can We Waste One Of The Greatest Talents In The World Today?? I get it to some extent — Ibushi is flakey and not committed to showing up for more than once in the proverbial blue moon, so you can only do so much with him, but at the same time this is really the best you can do? Another random 8-man tag with the 3rd generation guys and the junior elder statesmen? Why not put him in a singles match with somebody you’re not pushing and let him show a little more of what he can do here? You’re telling me a fifth team in that NEVER 6-man clusterfuck was so important that we couldn’t do Tiger Mask W vs. Zack Sabre Jr. or something and give this show another match that would be guaranteed to own? You’re the second-biggest company in the world with access to loads of special talents on your big shows, but instead of actually, y’know, doing something with them you stick them in random multi-man tags where they’ll get roughly 2 minutes each to do something, if we’re lucky. I just don’t get it. Anyway, who cares about this match. Prediction: Nagata, Makabe & The Twin Tigers

Alex Wendland: I’m not as upset about this as some people are, because this is what Kot…Tiger Mask W is. He’s unreliable on a long term basis, but at least he shows up for bookings he commits to. Even though he had that incredible match with Okada that sold out the building, Tiger Mask W is a cartoon tie-in in 2017. That was the ceiling, and it shouldn’t be the ceiling until Okada actually turns into King to promote the new Tekken. These would universally be better matches if they were broken up into singles and tags, but, as you’ll see, NJPW is getting as many people on the card as they can. Prediction: Tencozy, Liger & Nakanishi

Rich Kraetsch: The inexplicable case of Kota Ibushi—just a guy on the undercard in a silly Tiger Mask—continues. That this guy is happier in this role versus being in the main event mix is perplexing but, well, that’s Kota Ibushi. Part of me wishes for him and Tiger Mask IV to make a go of things as a normal tag team and maybe get into the IWGP Tag Titles mix. Anything to prevent Ibushi from being just another piece of a “get everyone on the card” eight-man tag at the beginning of the show. One more thing on this match: the optics of Jushin Thunder Liger—fresh off his final Best of the Super Juniors tournament—returning to the ranks as just another guy is a tough pill to swallow. He’s old as dirt but can still go. Time remains undefeated but it feels so empty and so shallow all the same. I don’t know that there’s anything you can do for Liger to look and feel more important on a roster with as much talent as NJPW has these days but still, I’m left wondering if there are more opportunities for Liger than this. Prediction: Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Jushin Thunder Liger, Manabu Nakanishi and Satoshi Kojima

NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship Gauntlet
Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI, EVIL and Sanada) (c) vs. Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Hangman Page and Yujiro Takahashi) vs. Chaos (Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano and YOSHI-HASHI) vs. Suzuki-gun (Taichi, Yoshinobu Kanemaru and Zack Sabre Jr.) vs. Taguchi Japan (Juice Robinson, Ricochet and Ryusuke Taguchi)

John Carroll: SPEAKING OF LITERALLY WHO CARES…..look, I get the idea behind these NEVER belts is they’re supposed to be fun and wacky, but that doesn’t mean they need to change hands on every friggin’ show! I’m down on my knees begging you to just let LIJ have them for a little while, Gedo; let it actually mean something when these belts change hands again! But I know you won’t do that, so let’s just assume it’s CHAOS’ turn. As for the match itself, if you saw the one at Wrestle Kingdom you should know what to expect. One or two of the segments at most will get some time and a chance to be good, the reset will take like 3 minutes and you’ll forget you even watched it. Prediction: CHAOS

Alex Wendland: Woof, there’s a lot going on here and it all seems pretty irrelevant. That said, every faction other than CHAOS is sending out their also-rans for the gauntlet–though I’ll hear an argument for Juice, Ricochet and Taguchi. Actually, I hope the rest of the teams all come down with the flu and this match is just CHAOS against Taguchi Japan. That’d be best for business. Prediction: CHAOS

Rich Kraetsch: NJPW Gauntlet matches are usually awesome so I’m looking forward to this. The problem: I don’t really care who wins. That’s the crux of the NEVER Openweight Titles. They are fun, you can do a lot with them, they are versatile, you can create wonky, silly teams and give them a run with the title. Ultimately, though, it’s completely meaningless who wins or loses them. I advocated a few weeks ago for Taguchi Japan to become THE team synonymous with the titles and they lost ‘em a few days later. They could just as easily retain them again on this night. The gift and the curse of the NEVER Openweight Six-Mans Titles. Prediction: Taguchi Japan

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship
Roppongi Vice (c) vs. The Young Bucks

John Carroll: We haven’t seen much of the Bucks in New Japan this year, which is a double-edged sword; on one hand, I think a lot of people have been getting pretty tired of their act, but on the other I would still take them over another Kanemaru & Taichi match every day of the damn week (and twice on Sundays). The Bucks have felt super stale to me so far this year when I’ve seen them; I think the straw that broke the camel’s back for me was watching them in there with one of the best wrestlers on the entire planet, Tetsuya Naito, at the WOTW NYC PPV, and somehow still wrestling the exact same Young Bucks match as always! Naito may as well have been a mannequin! But on the other hand, they’ve at least been out of NJPW for a while that it does feel sort of fresh to have them back. And their New Japan act is toned down enough compared to their out of control ROH stuff that you can usually get a better actual match out of it, for whatever that’s worth. Their match at WK was good with a creative structure (Beretta takes himself out of the match so it looks like they have no hope, but then Romero gets the flash pin anyway), and I would expect more of the same here. I would assume the Bucks are winning here to set up another rematch at the G1 US shows next month, cause otherwise I have no idea what the junior tag title match at that show would even be. Prediction: Young Bucks

Alex Wendland: To the American audience, it seems like the Young Bucks never went away (because they didn’t), but they’ve been pretty absent from the NJPW scene for months now. It’s pretty obvious that the Bucks will be a key to NJPW’s success stateside, but first they’ll need something to bring over here. Perhaps it will stay as the Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship (though I’d advocate for renaming it the IWGP North American Tag Team Championship), but it would be smart to essentially separate the Junior and Heavyweight belts by an ocean. The divisions have only kept NJPW from booking fresh tag matchups across the division. How is Trent Baretta a junior anyways? He’s like six inches taller than Rocky. Moving on…send the Bucks back to the USA with a title they can use to build the brand in a new market. Prediction: The Young Bucks

Rich Kraetsch: C’mon, who didn’t see this coming? You think New Japan Pro Wrestling is going to run two shows in Los Angeles and not have The Young freakin’ Bucks as their champions? You’re crazy. Prediction: The Young Bucks

IWGP Tag Team Championship
War Machine (Hanson and Raymond Rowe) (c) vs. Guerrillas of Destiny

John Carroll: I think this is your sleeper match of the night right here. War Machine have gotten over pretty well in New Japan so far, especially when Hanson starts breaking out his dives, and they’ve been a good fit. Meanwhile, GoD have been great since the World Tag League last year, if not a little earlier than that. We’re finally getting these two teams up against each other without any of that 3- or 4-way bullshit, and I think both teams are excited at the idea of having a chance to really deliver here. I’ve liked their exchanges in six- and eight-mans leading up to this, too. Don’t skip this one, it could end up being a banger of a match. I could see it going either way, but I’m gonna give the slight edge to GoD regaining their belts, just because I think they’ve earned another run with the gold given how good they’ve been in the past six months or so. Prediction: GoD

Alex Wendland: War Machine have been incredible in NJPW since debuting with ROH earlier this year. Along with Silas Young, they did more for their stock internationally than anyone else on that tour. Even with their much-ballyhooed improvement, Guerrillas of Destiny haven’t really done much for me outside of a couple of matches. There isn’t much juice to either tag division outside of War Machine right now, though, so it’d be smart to keep the momentum where you’ve got some. Prediction: War Machine

Rich Kraetsch: For those who followed War Machine’s brief NOAH run in the fall of 2015, you knew how well the duo fit into Japan. When the made their way to NJPW for the 2016 World Tag League you knew it was only a matter of time until they were a regular team in the company. There’s something about the look and feel of their matches, their entrance, their ring attire that connects with Japanese audiences more than their American counterparts. That’s not to say War Machine wasn’t a big deal in America, they absolutely were, but if given the right massaging, they could become an all-time legendary duo in Japan. A big step in that direction would be a convincing win here. War Machine dispatched GoD at Honor Rising 2017 in a straight two-on-two match and defeated them in a triple threat at Wrestling Dontaku. Can they make it three-for-three? Prediction: War Machine

Cody vs. Michael Elgin

John Carroll: From a sleeper match candidate to a literally go to sleep candidate, it’s Cody and Big Mike! Sorry Michael, I think you’re great (and you were in one of my favorite matches of the year so far!), but I am completely unable to get excited for a Cody Rhodes match in New Japan. His style just does not work in this company at all, so unless your idea of a fun match is Cody doing his exaggerated 80s heel schtick to an audience of completely silent Japanese people I don’t think there’s much to be excited about here. I dunno who is winning this either; I would like to say Elgin, but with Cody probably winning the ROH World title a few days later it would be pretty nonsensical if ROH sent him to New Japan just to do a job right before that. But hey, Delirious has done dumber stuff before, so I guess you never know…. Prediction: Cody

Alex Wendland: Poor Mike. He’s having a career year (rolling 12 months) in the ring AND putting together a nice indie promotion back on the home side, yet here he is straddled with Cody R on the second biggest show of the year (and he was in the Rambo on the biggest show of the year!). Big Mike can’t catch a booking break to save his life, but his work has been stellar. I see Mike bringing out the best Cody has to offer and, as a result, the match settling in at right about ***3/4 . And still, Big Mike won’t catch a break from the book. Prediction: Cody

Rich Kraetsch: Cody R’s NJPW proper (excluding ROH/NJPW) matches so far: def. Juice Robinson, def. Jay Lethal. That’s it. Two singles matches, two wins. Unbelievably, he’s probably going to make it three wins after Dominion. Even though Elgin is only a few months removed from challenging for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship, I fear he’s doing the job for the one and only Cody R. To call Cody’s NJPW run underwhelming isn’t fair because you shouldn’t have expected anything in the first place. To me, Cody is being exactly what I and anyone who has really followed his career would have expected. He’s been fine. Just fine. Never bad. Never good. Never great. Never awful. Just fine. You’d expect more than just fine when you’re across the ring from Big Mike but the Cody vortex is strong. I expect this match to be… fine. Prediction: Cody

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship
Hiromu Takahashi (c) vs. KUSHIDA

John Carroll: Count me in the group that was super surprised to hear KUSHIDA won the BOSJ, as it just feels way too early to be going back to this match again. This feels like a classic example of booking yourself into a corner, because I think it would be ridiculous to take the belt off the freshest and most interesting act in all of Japan this soon, but at the same time do you really want KUSHIDA jobbing three times in a row to the same guy? I know he has his critics, but Ospreay really should have won back-to-back BOSJs and gone on to lose to Hiromu here. It’s just not the right time to do this match again, especially on a show that’s so overloaded with Wrestle Kingdom rematches anyway, and I really think this is one of the biggest booking blunders Gedo has made in his entire run. Anyway. Who do I want to win this? Hiromu. Who do I think will win this? Unfortunately, KUSHIDA. Prediction: KUSHIDA

Alex Wendland: I should be hotter for this match, shouldn’t I? There’s bad blood between these two, KUSHIDA is coming off of an incredible redemption story following an awesome match with Will Ospreay in the BOSJ finals and Hiromu Takahashi has been a much-needed explosion of dynamism in the juniors division. Yet this match feels rushed. Not the story, mind you, that’s been ebbing and flowing for a long time. But the space between Takahashi’s destruction of KUSHIDA and KUSHIDA challenging for the title again doesn’t seem like enough. I don’t think KUSHIDA should be the one to unseat Takashashi, but I don’t know what else you do with KUSHIDA if he doesn’t. There’s at least one great idea for what to do with him, but I don’t think it’s the right time to take the belt off of Hiromu. Prediction: Hiromu Takahashi

Rich Kraetsch: You’re nuts if you aren’t looking forward to this match. KUSHIDA’s redemption story throughout the Best of the Super Juniors was fun to follow and it was capped off by a no-dobut Match of the Year contender and one of the most emotional junior matches you’ll ever see in KUSHIDA vs. Will Ospreay. Watch KUSHIDA in that match and tell me you aren’t dying to see him get at Hiromu. KUSHIDA was a man possessed in that match, throwing stiffer shots, harder blows than he ever has before and ensuring that no matter how many things Ospreay threw at him, he wasn’t going to let this opportunity slip. Now that opportunity has come… will KUSHIDA complete his road to redemption or will Hiromu do away with him once again? I’m conflicted in both what I would do and what I think NJPW is going to do. It seems too sudden for Hiromu to drop the title but KUSHIDA’s done so much to come back from his embarrassing loss all those months ago. You’re going to have him scratch and claw his way back to the top only to lose again? My heart and my mind are leaning KUSHIDA right now with Hiromu eventually getting the title back. Prediction: KUSHIDA

NEVER Openweight Championship – Lumberjack Deathmatch
Minoru Suzuki (c) vs. Hirooki Goto

John Carroll: Speaking of booking blunders, why in god’s name is this third from the top over the Junior title match?! All year long you’ve been establishing the junior title as a higher priority, to the point where it semi-mained some shows this year, and then you put this stupid match for a stupid belt no one on the entire earth cares about over it? Uh. Why? Cause of the dumbass lumberjack gimmick no one wants to see in New Japan anyway? Okay, I know I’m sounding too negative here; their match that Suzuki won was pretty good, and this could be good too as long as the gimmick doesn’t overwhelm it. But seriously, if you care who has this dumb belt that makes one of us. Prediction: Minoru Suzuki

Alex Wendland: Good god, why? This match has three of my least favorite things in all of pro wrestling: Suzuki-gun, Minoru Suzuki and lumberjack matches. Please make this match short. Perhaps just long enough to use the bathroom and make some tea (since I’ll be watching this in the early morning, perhaps out on my hammock). I actually like the NEVER belt. I think NJPW needs a solid midcard title since both the main belts have so much cache (not a bad thing!). But please, please, please…not a lumberjack match. Prediction: Hirooki Goto

Rich Kraetsch: I fucking love that every stipulation match in NJPW is a “death” match. Chain match? Nope… CHAIN DEATHMATCH. Cage match? HELL NO, IT’S A CAGE DEATHMATCH. This one is the most hilarious though as your standard, run-of-the-mill, dudes standing on the outside lumberjack match is billed as a LUMBERJACK DEATH MATCH. For those scoring at home, this is (per Cagematch.net), the 5th lumberjack death match in NJPW history and the 10th lumberjack match. The most recent—Prince Devitt vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi at NJPW Destruction 2013—was an awesome match with nuclear heat in the arena. I would temper expectations going into this one. It’s not that I don’t think Goto and Suzuki could have a great match, I just don’t know how invested the crowd is in anything Suzuki-gun does right now. When Devitt and Tanahashi needed lumberjacks to keep things in the ring, it was at the height of the Devitt-led Bullet Club. A team that generated gigantic heat by daring to use western wrestling tactics (weapons, run-ins, referee distractions!) to win matches. Now that those have become so commonplace in NJPW, it’s hard to be really excited about seeing Suzuki-gun neutralized. I’ll probably spend more time telling myself this is how EVERY Suzuki-gun match should be as opposed to really caring that they can’t interfere on this night. One way or another, I expect this match to be better than people think. It may not be a Match of the Night (I mean, jeez, let’s look at the matches remaining) but it could be the sleeper Match of the Night. Or, Suzuki-gun finds a way to interfere anyway and I go cry in a hole. Prediction: Hirooki Goto

IWGP Intercontinental Championship
Tetsuya Naito (c) vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi

John Carroll: Of course there’s one big giant question surrounding this match: what is Hiroshi Tanahashi’s condition? It feels like we end up asking the same question every year around this time and every year he comes through anyway, so maybe we should just give him the benefit of the doubt. If he’s in any condition to perform at his usual high level, this should be another outstanding match, similar to their excellent WK match (that had the misfortune of being on the same show as that Okada-Omega match). You’d also assume Tanahashi is taking the belt here, both to bring a close to the “Naito abusing the IC belt” storyline with Tanahashi rescuing it from his clutches and to free up Naito ahead of the G1 and WK season. If Naito-Okada is your Dome main event next year, he’s gotta drop this belt soon. But if Tanahashi is NOT in great condition, I could see Naito retaining here and losing the IC belt to someone else at the G1 US shows next month. So that’s the big X factor, whether or not Tanahashi is healed enough from injury. I’m not going to bet against him. Prediction: Hiroshi Tanahashi

Alex Wendland: I don’t know what to think about this match. I feel the malaise towards this that some people feel towards the timing of the main event. Naito’s antics with the Intercontinental belt have been hilarious and #goodcontent, but it feels like time to move on soon. Tanahashi has been hurt, obviously, and with NJPW injuries and injury reports the way they have been, who knows what’s legit and what’s worked? To me, this feels like a booking corner. Beating Naito goes against Tanahashi’s fading star gimmick, but Naito really needs a conquering hero and they’re running out of time to find one before the G1 if it isn’t going to be Tanahashi. I’m going with Tanahashi going for another ride and pinning Father Time once more when he pins Naito. Prediction: Hiroshi Tanahashi

Rich Kraetsch: The writing’s on the wall for Naito to pass off the Intercontinental Championship and set his sights on bigger and better things — starting with this summer’s G1 Climax tournament. This IC run has been a fun-filled affair with flipping titles, broken face plates and a malaise towards all things corporate NJPW but it’s time to move on. Tanahashi winning now is perfect. It all but guarantees he won’t be a major player in the G1 Climax—an important way to let Naito and the loser of the main event stand above the rest of the field—and it helps solidify Tanahashi’s newly-developed Grizzled Delusional Veteran character. You just know Tanahashi is going to win this title and treat it like the biggest god damn deal in the world. They’ll need to send security to get his air-guitaring ass out of the ring for the main event. He’ll be going in the crowd FINDING towels to put his sweat all over. He’ll throw that thing into the passenger seat of his Ford Mustang, bring it to the bars tonight and spend the next few weeks telling everyone how he finally brought respectability back to New Japan Pro Wrestling. Nobody will have the heart to tell him it’s the 1B Title but that’s fine, that’s our new Tanahashi reality and it’s one I love. Prediction: Hiroshi Tanahashi

IWGP Heavyweight Championship
Kazuchika Okada (c) vs. Kenny Omega

John Carroll: Kenny Omega himself thinks this match is happening again too soon, and I totally understand where he’s coming from. He just had a match that, regardless of your personal feelings on it, is almost guaranteed to win MOTY for 2017, on the biggest stage in Japanese wrestling. Immediately you’re trying to top a match that is still recent enough to be heavily on fans’ minds with the dual disadvantages of it no longer being a first-time meeting AND being on a smaller stage to boot. That’s definitely going to be a challenge. I’m not going to necessarily say it will be impossible, but I think by the end of the night most people will feel the WK match was better. I think their best shot at having a match even comparable is to do something completely different; instead of a 45-minute main event again, do a 20-25 minute match that’s a sprint by comparison. A very different match has a better chance at standing out in people’s minds by the end of the year, without invoking feelings of severe disappointment when compared to the WK match. As far as the winner goes, I think this is Kenny Omega’s time. Omega wins the belt here, gets to head into the US shows as champion, and loses it to Naito in the fall (setting up Naito-Okada for Wrestle Kingdom, because Okada is winning the G1 again). Prediction: Kenny Omega

Alex Wendland: I kind of think we should skip previewing this. Don’t overthink things, just sit back and let this match happen. Kenny hasn’t really done anything since losing in his big shot on January 4 (lots of t-shirt Kenny), but he’s worked himself back into shape and I’m ready for another classic. There are lots of North America-related ideas for what to do with the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, but I don’t want any of that stuff to cloud what is my most anticipated rematch of the year (and possibly my most anticipated non-WK match of the year). The last time these two clashed was magic. How much of that can be recaptured? Prediction: I’m going to really enjoy this.

Rich Kraetsch: I totally get the complaints about this match happening too soon after the first one. However, at times we lose sight of this being a business. Given the booking of Osaka-jo Hall, NJPW needs to bring a big time match to the table and short of Naito/Okada, this is the biggest one they have. And guess what? It worked as ticket sales have been great. Sure, we want there to be a longer story told here, we want to wait for the right moment to strike again but that’s not always in the cards. Sometimes you need to sell a shit ton of tickets to a big building. More than the importance of Osaka-jo Hall in the booking of this match, I think NJPW’s arrival in the United States for July’s G1 Specials played a factor in the booking of this match. I said it months ago and I stand by it—Kenny is entering those shows at the IWGP Heavyweight Champion. While I don’t know if that’s the right call for the here and now, it’s a call I can absolutely see them justifying. But let’s ignore the business side for a moment and talk about this match. Yeah, there are other ways I would approach their rematch, I may have done this or that or moved it to this date in this arena blah blah blah — we’re getting a goddamn Kenny Omega vs. Kazuchika Okada match. We were blessed with one of the greatest spectacles in wrestling six months ago and, now, we get to see it again. That match is solidly locked in as my #1 Match of the Year. I just can’t fathom how these two can duplicate what they did on that magical night but should we put it past them? Okada has been next-level good in 2017 and Omega is probably the smartest wrestler in the world today. If any two men could improve on “six-stars”, it’s these two. Is it ideal that these two are wrestling again already? No, probably not. But, hey, the child-like wrestling fan deep inside me doesn’t give a shit. I have a chance to see magic happen again. Bring it on. Prediction: Kenny Omega
