Just looked over the full cards for the New Beginning shows. Are they really doing Yano & The Briscoes vs. Fale/Tonga/Yujiro on BOTH Osaka & Niigata, or am I reading something incorrectly?

from my reading of Chinese wordings I can only decipher that the nigaata match is a non title one ...

Late to the party but holy crap Kamitachi and Dragon Lee was great. I am cursing myself for not following Lucha at all because they are amazing. What is the matches I should watch in regards to them?

If you want one of those Nakamura shirts you don't have much time to order and you'll have to use a forwarding service as they're only going to be available on New Japan's webstore just as a warning. They won't be sold after February 16th.
Can you link me to that page? I can't find the shirt.

Much appreciated to you both. Will have to watch that at the end of the week. (After I catch up on Dragon Gate and main event from the last Stardom show).

Kind of strange they're doing the NEVER 6 Man match twice -- even with the 2nd night being a non title affair.

Also, I'm very stoked to see Finlay v White as well as reDRagon stretching out and pounding down on Saku.

And how will Goto handle getting booed on 2/11?

Speaking of Goto, he has just been added to the RoH show in Vegas on 2/26.

I gotta be honest I'm pretty jacked up for Goto vs. Okada after the Kouraken Road to New Beginning show. This heel aggressive Goto just wanting to beat the crap out of Okada is giving me heat to a match I really didn't care for (despite the fact I know the match will be well worked). From the moment in the tag match where he made Nakamura tag in Okada and the heat he received for it, I was sold. Goto being an aggressive dick is absolutely great.

Also the Niigata card makes me think Naito & Evil are going to challenge Honma & Makabe for the tag titles.

Once again we have a hot and heavy feud between Okada and his title challenger involving brawling and such. And once again the challenger comes across as a heelish dick. LOVE IT!

Hmm...if your thoughts for the next tag title challenge is correct, I'd root for LIdJ to win over GBH.

Yet Okada just stays calm cocky and cool. It's amazing television.

The only other thought stream I could see that going is LI against whoever the trios champs are. The fact Los Ingobernables haven't lost a tag match since the tag tournament doesn't seem by accident.

I don't know where you're seeing either of those directions for the Ingobernables? It looks like they're building to either Naito/Elgin or EVIL/Elgin to me.

Naito/Elgin seems the immediate program for Honor Rising. I'm more thinking in regards to Invasion Attack based purely on win/loss record.
