On this week’s episode of Wrestling Omakase we shift back to Shin Nihon, once again being joined by returning guest Andrew Rich (@andrewtrich) of the Music of the Mat (@musicofthemat) podcast to break it all down. First, the two of them review all three NJPW Destruction shows (Fukushima, Hiroshima & Kobe), discussing all the major matches and angles on each. Is Gedo’s booking of the undercards getting lazy? Were these shows any good? Have we hit the absolute bottom of the barrel for the heavyweight tag team title division?
Once that’s wrapped up, we move on to previewing the upcoming Sumo Hall show, King of Pro-Wrestling. We discuss the entire card in detail, breaking it down match-by-match along with our predictions and thoughts on each. We also discuss the recent history of defending the Tokyo Dome title shot contract and whether or not it’s been a successful gimmick. Finally, we even look ahead to Power Struggle a bit. Don’t miss this week’s edition of Omakase!
