This week on Wrestling Omakase it’s a deep dive through the highlights of the entire AJPW Champion Carnival and more! John is joined by returning guest Thomas Fischbeck and first time guest Gerard Di Trolio as we go night-by-night through the best matches of the entire Champion Carnival, all the way from Night 1 through the last two block shows at Korakuen Hall! Hear our picks for the best matches of the tournament, as we give you plenty to pick and choose from if you haven’t seen it up till this point.
Plus, some takes on whether or not one match in particular (James-Okabayashi) was indeed the Match of the Year candidate it’s being hyped up in some places, yet more debate about Jake Lee’s potential stardom, and much more. That takes up the bulk of the episode before we move into a brief overview of some major matches from the past week of NJPW’s Dontaku tour, including Ibushi-ZSJ and the junior tag team title match. Finally we wrap things up with a full review of DDT’s 4/28 Max Bump Korakuen match-by-match and a look ahead at the King of DDT tournament and Tokyo Joshi Pro Korakuen coming up. It’s a packed episode!
