  1. Really hope we get something over Smith. I’ve heard a lot of rumors(the selling his body for cash stuff is the most interesting imo) and hope we get to hear about him more.
  2. Summer Struggle Night 5 Preview: Main event: NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship tournament: Los Ingobernables De Japon (Shingo Takagi, BUSHI & SANADA) vs Suzuki-Gun (Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado & DOUKI) LIJ have to be the hot favourites in this eight team tournament for the NEVER 6-Man Championship gold. After all, BUSHI, Shingo Takagi and EVIL looked to be dominant champions until EVIL defected to BULLET CLUB and vacated the gold. With SANADA teaming effectively with Shingo in recent events, it seems as if Cold Skull will slide neatly into a no doubt championship worthy team. Yet Suzuki-Gun’s devious ways and outright brutality are not to be overlooked. After Minoru Suzuki won an all out brutal war against Yuji Nagata in Korakuen Hall on July 31, the King stated that he had brand new plans in mind; could they come in the form of NEVER glory? 5th Match: NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship Tournament: CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada, SHO & Toru Yano) vs BULLET CLUB (Yujiro Takahashi, Jado & Gedo) CHAOS take on BULLET CLUB in the night’s other tournament matchup. When Jado’s presence in the corner of Gedo and Yujiro Takahashi was looking to pay dividends on July 31, Toru Yano evened the odds for the CHAOS side, and we now have a formidable trio with some very different wrest;ling philosophies combating BULLET CLUB. Will it be the disparate approaches of the CHAOS team winning out, or the united (and corrupted) vision of Yujiro and tag team legends Jado & Gedo that advance in the NEVER 6-Man tournament? 4th Match: Hiroshi Tanahashi, Kota Ibushi & Yuya Uemura vs Suzuki-Gun (Zack Sabre Junior, El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru) Golden☆Ace continue a long standing issue with Dangerous Tekkers in the fourth match of the night as the two teams engage in non-tournament six man action. Friday in Korakuen Hall, another lacking performance by Hiroshi Tanahashi led to a frustrated Kota Ibushi leaving the Ace alone on the floor as he walked out, adding fuel to the fire that this once dream team might have turned into a nightmare. With a 6-man tournament match coming up the next night, can Tanahashi turn his fortunes around tonight? 3rd Match: Satoshi Kojima, Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma vs CHAOS (YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano) The CHAOS side of Ishii, Goto and YOSHI-HASHI get a tune up match for Friday’s tournament battle against Makabe, Honma and Taguchi’s one night substitute Kojima here. The CHAOS trio will be grateful for the chance to develop some combinations without the tournament pressure, but at the same time, coach Taguchi will be able to take notes and be relatively fresh for Friday. 2nd Match: Master Wato & Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs Yota Tsuji & Ryusuke Taguchi Tag team action in the second match of the evening sees some interesting factors at play. Wato is in his first direct tag team matchup with Hiroyoshi Tenzan since Tenzan came in support of Wato at the New Japan Cup finals in Osaka Jo Hall. That night, Wato was making his in-ring return after Mexican excursion; an excurion Yota Tsuji hopes to make some day, albeit as a heavyweight to Wato’s junior status. It should make for an interesting mix of styles in Korakuen. 1st Match: Yuji Nagata vs Gabriel Kidd The night kicks off with singles action as Yuji Nagata takes on Gabriel Kidd. After main eventing in Korakuen on July 31, Nagata will start the evening on August 6, but will continue fight with his all, and teach some valuable lessons to Gabriel Kidd. For the promising young Briton, a learning opportunity, and one to send further messages to the man he really wants to compete with in singles action: Togi Makabe.
  3. New Japan Cup USA Preview: Originally planned for the first round of the New Japan Cup in Japan when it was first announced in March, Karl Fredericks finally takes on KENTA one on one in the opening round of New Japan Cup USA. Since the Japanese version of the New Japan Cup was postponed, Karl Fredericks has undergone a significant transformation, leaving behind the Young Lion black trunks and coming into his own with a new appearance and attitude. Although that new attitude was brought into check by Jeff Cobb at the season finale of Lion’s Break Collision, Fredericks is nonetheless in peak form going into this bout with KENTA, and with strong personal motivation. The influence of Katsuyori Shibata on Fredericks is no secret, and KENTA’s betrayal of his former best friend to join BULLET CLUB almost one year ago is still fresh in the young ‘Alpha’s’ memory. Throughout Lion’s Break Collision, Fredericks was insistent that the faction system at play in New Japan Pro-Wrestling was not for him, and that he wouldn’t be rushing to join a group for acceptance in the same way that he feels his first round opponent had. Can Fredericks score the biggest win of his young career and move a step closer to IWGP United States gold? Or will it be KENTA stamping his authority on NJPW STRONG? Originally scheduled to face Togi Makabe and David Finlay respectively when the New Japan Cup was originally announced for Japan, Jeff Cobb and Tanga Loa now face off in the first round of New Japan Cup USA. A former six time IWGP Tag Team Champion, Tanga Loa’s singles record is of bigger question; believe it or not, this will be Tanga Loa’s second ever singles match in NJPW, and the first in three years (for the record, that first match in New Japan Cup 2017 against Yuji Nagata ended in a loss). For his part, Jeff Cobb is on fine form, having scored a hard fought victory over Karl Fredericks in the main event of Lion’s Break Collision’s season finale. Already with NJPW tournament experience after last year’s G1 Climax saw him to a respectable eight points, Cobb is defeated one on one in NJPW thus far this year between new Beginning USA and Lion’s Break Collision, and he’s looking to ride that wave on the way to a Tour of the Islands for one half of GoD. The only pairing in the New Japan Cup that isn’t a first time meeting, Chase Owens and David Finlay’s sole singles meeting was nevertheless way back in 2016, and ‘Big Match Debbie’ has progressed a long way since his defeat to BULLET CLUB’s Crown Jewel all those years ago in Iwate. That said, his proudest achievements of World Tag League 2019 victory and the IWGP Tag Team Championships have been attained with Juice Robinson at his side. With the Flamboyant One injured for the time being and taking the every man for himself format of the New Japan Cup into account, Finlay must deliver in only his second singles match since returning from shoulder injury in late 2019. Appropriately enough that singles contest was a battle for the IWGP (United States Heavyweight Championship against then title holder Lance Archer; Finlay now gets a chance to reset and start another drive for the red and gold. Owens is no opponent to be looked past however; the canny in-ring style and ability to bend the rules in his favour could make Owens the dark horse of this tournament; don’t forget that in last year’s New Japan Cup a victory over Juice put Owens on his own path to challenge for the United States title last spring. Both men will be highly motivated to move on in the cup and leave a solid mark on NJPW STRONG in the process. Our final first round matchup sees ROH’s Brody King face off against Tama Tonga. NJPW fans were first introduced to Brody King during last year’s Best of the Super Juniors tour, where his incredible size, strength and power made his lucha influenced style and high flying ability all the more impressive. Now on STRONG King has the opportunity to make sure his name is on the lips of every NJPW fan once more. Standing in his way is Tama Tonga. The fourth BULLET CLUB member in as many first round matchups, Tonga is no doubt intent on ensuring that the Cup, and subsequently the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship, makes its way to the faction by any means necessary. Should the ‘Good Bad Guy’ himself make take that spot, so much the better for Tonga.
  4. Five years later and it’s been great. Still thankful for the opportunity I was given. Have absolutely loved being your longest tenured moderator.

    A Fight

    Fire is in the eyes of the BMF Champion here tonight. He stares now at the Universal Championship that FDS holds, reality seemingly setting in for the former champion. He nods for a brief moment, seemingly calming down as FDS was speaking. Slowly he picks his microphone back up, looking into the eyes of FD as he speaks. “Madness? You want brutality? Bloodshed? Okay....okay, okay, okay, okay, OKAY YOU’RE ON!” Flynn now is nodding his head like a mad man, frantically pacing back and forth before continuing to speak. “The Crimson Gold, is the premier strap on Carnage and in my own professional opinion in the entire damn world. But this, this BMF Championship, it represents the man who’s willing to go the distance to truly hurt his opponent to win a match. Pain and suffering is something he inflicts and no one wishes to actually challenge him. Yet here you stand, tall and mighty fresh off conquering and defeating me, seemingly begging for more. You are either an idiot or a madman. It doesn’t really matter because at Summerslam you’ll be a deadman. You won’t take everything from me FDS. I will do everything it takes to keep my BMF Championship. Anything.” “As for the match stipulation. I want to punish you. More importantly I promised to beat some respect into you at King of the Ring and I clearly failed at that. Well that’s ok because I’ll make sure I do it this time. Summerslam, for the BMF Championship, Flynn vs. FDS IN A TEXAS DEATH MATCH.” Flynn tosses the microphone before raising his BMF Championship high above his head. FDS now, with a sly smile raises his Universal Championship, clearly mocking but also showing Flynn that he has no intentions of backing down. Their Summerslam rematch set, and the stakes have been raised. Who will survive the Texas Death Match.
  6. It should be the Diamond Championship.

    A Fight

    The camera opens to the Carnage crowd as we are coming off one of BPZ’s biggest events of the year. The audience is buzzing and everyone in attendance is excited to begin building to another huge event in Summerslam. Quickly, the camera cuts to the stage where we are greeted to the slow, menacing walk of the former Universal Champion, Jeremiah Flynn. His hair his wild and he looks like he hasn’t slept in days. He carries his BMF Championship in his right hand however the loss of his Universal Championship must weigh heavily on the man who’s held said Championship for 450+ days of his career. He reaches the ring, where he climbs to the top turnbuckle, his eyes peering across the thousands in attendance tonight. He reaches the center of the ring where he stands staring at the hard camera. He doesn’t make a move for a solid twenty seconds before finally removing a microphone from his boot. He stands there holding the microphone for the longest time, frozen, unable to speak. The fans sit in anticipation as Jeremiah seemingly is struggling to even get a word out. He begins to frantically pace. The writing is on the wall, the former Universal Champion is seemingly a broken man. Finally, after what feels like an eternity, he speaks. “I lost.” Jeremiah pauses now, lowering the microphone once again as now an applause rains down. He nods approving of the show of appreciation from the crowd before continuing to speak. “Last night..... last night FDS hit me hard and I didn’t recover. Last night FDS kicked my ass. Last night FDS TOOK MY UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP FROM ME. Congratulations to FDS. You are now the fifth man ever to hold the Crimson gold. More importantly you are the second man ever to defeat me for that belt, and that I know for a fact is no easy task...... but..... heh.” Flynn lowers the microphone again, taking a moment to think before speaking again. “FDS you are testing me. When you defeated Nebakos to became the Number One contender that was you finally utilizing all of your talent to the fullest. Yet when I came to shake your hand, you left me high and dry. At King of the Ring we beat the living hell out of each other and even in defeat, you refused to shake my hand. That’s ok, I can take a hint but you weren’t done there were you? Because I saw what you had to say after the match. FDS wants the real Jeremiah Flynn back. The same man who for the last two years put nearly every man he competed in this ring with in the fucking hospital. Just ask your boys Raven and KENJI what it’s like to face that man. Ask them what it’s like to get in the ring with the “Painmaker”. What you are asking for isn’t a wrestling match. ITS A FIGHT!” “So if you want to fight me, then why don’t you just get your ass out here right now. You can come alone, you can bring FD-GUN, I DON’T GIVE A DAMN ANYMORE. LETS FIGHT YOU SON OF A BITCH.” Flynn drops the microphone, looking up to the stage as he has requested a fight with the new Universal Champion here tonight.!

  12. Summer Struggle Day 4 Main event: Yuji Nagata vs Minoru Suzuki Singles record: 7-4 Nagata After weeks of intense battles in and out of the ring, Yuji Nagata and Minoru Suzuki will finally meet one on one once more in Korakuen. After a seven year singles match cease fire in their long running rivalry, Nagata and Suzuki met one on one in the first round of the New Japan Cup. A hard hitting instant classic matchup, Nagata finally got the pinfall over the King, sending Suzuki crashing out of the Cup at the first hurdle. Suzuki is not the type to let a loss of that nature slide, and in subsequent tag team matches got ever more brutal in his attacks on Blue Justice, who only responded in kind. Backstage, Suzuki repeatedly insisted that a singles match be made, and that a place and date be set for ‘Yuji Nagata’s public execution’. A time and place is now set, as July 31 and Korakuen Hall will see the 12th singles matchup between these two strong willed veterans; but Nagata is far from willing to accept his ‘execution’. He once again takes aim at the King this Friday, and is determined not to miss. 5th Match: Los Ingobernables De Japon (Tetsuya Naito, Hiromu Takahashi & BUSHI) vs BULLET CLUB (EVIL, Taiji Ishimori & Dick Togo) In the fifth match at Korakuen Hall this Friday, LIJ and BULLET CLUB trios once again clash, as questions continue to circle around the condition of Hiromu Takahashi’s shoulder. On Sunday at the Summer Struggle opener, Ishimori struck the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion with Bloody Cross before making his championship challenge official. The next night, the Bone Soldier’s vicious offense, combined with the after effects of a brutal war with EVIL Saturday at Sengoku Lord, had Takahashi submitting to the Yes Lock, and screaming in pain, before being taken for evaluation by NJPW trainers. Hiromu’s match with Ishimori now official for Summer Struggle in Jingu on August 29, the question remains whether the champion will be in a fit state to take the title match in the first place, and whether Ishimori will push the Time Bomb to breaking point in the hopes of winning the title via forfeit. Meanwhile EVIL and Tetsuya Naito is also confirmed for Jingu Stadium, and Naito is set to turn up his ‘no tranquilo’ aggression for the double IWGP Champion to yet further heights. 4th Match: CHAOS (SHO & Kazuchika Okada) vs BULLET CLUB (Gedo & Yujiro Takahashi) SHO and Kazuchika Okada team up once again to face Yujiro Takahashi and Gedo in the third match of the evening. After Okada submitted Takahashi in Nagoya with the Money Clip hold, Takahashi has refused to accept the result, or to let go of his issues with the Rainmaker. Pushing hard for another singles match, he has certainly adopted the BULLET CLUB mantra of ‘by any means necessary’, on Monday night in Korakuen Hall enlisting the aid of Jado and his kendo stick to lead to victory. Takahashi will be wholly focused on Okada Friday, but one has to wonder whether the Rainmaker will be wholly focused on the Tokyo Pimp. We are fresh off Okada’s monumental announcement of the KOPW2020 title, and one has to assume that Okada will want to put himself in the running for the championship of his own creation. Will his mind be elsewhere Friday, and can BULLET CLUB capitalize? 3rd Match: Yuya Uemura, Master Wato, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Kota Ibushi vs Suzuki-Gun (DOUKI, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, El Desperado, Zack Sabre Junior & Taichi) Yuji Nagata and Minoru suzuki meet in the main event Friday, but underneath, hontai and Suzuki-Gun are still waging war. Golden☆Ace have been trying to build a case for an IWGP Tag Team Championship rematch with Dangerous Tekkers for weeks now, with little success. Facing constant criticism from ZSJ and Taichi, even Kota Ibushi has called into question the current motivation and ability of his legendary tag team partner. Hiroshi Tanahashi badly needs to turn a corner Friday, while Master Wato seeks to make a similar mark on Yoshinobu Kanemaru. Can he state a strong enough case for a future singles bout? 2nd Match: Great Bash Heel (Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma) vs Los Ingobernables De Japon (Shingo Takagi & SANADA) On Sunday July 26, SANADA and Shingo Takagi formed an impressive combination indeed to defeat YOSHI-HASHI and Hirooki Goto. After SANADA’s long held partnership with EVIL came to a vicious end when the King of Darkness defected to BULLET CLUB, a new combination might be found in Cold Skull and the Dragon. They’ll test their mettle against former IWGP Tag Team Champions in GBH tonight. It isn’t just tag competition that’s on Shingo’s mind however. Can he find a new challenger for the NEVER Openweight Championship before Jingu? 1st Match: Gabriel Kidd, Yota Tsuji, Ryusuke Taguchi & Satoshi Kojima vs CHAOS (YOSHI-HASHI, Toru Yano, Tomohiro Ishii & Hirooki Goto) Eight man tag team action will kick things off from Korakuen Friday night. After missing three nights of action, Yota Tsuji looks to hit the ground running in Korakuen Hall, while Gabriel Kidd will not be one upped!

  14. Alex Costa Final Entrant in North American Championship Qualifiers! Following an impressive showing against Sameer in the Intercontinental Championship match at King of the Ring, Alex Costa has been named the final entrant and shall take on JoshsNow on August 4th in a chance to go on to Summerslam and be crowned the next North American Champion. With that being said we here on Carnage are ecstatic with such a stacked field and the matches all of these individuals will put on to call themselves champion.
  15. Summer Struggle Day 2: Main event: Los Ingobernables De Japon (Tetsuya Naito, Hiromu Takahashi & SANADA) vs BULLET CLUB (EVIL, Dick Togo & Taiji Ishimori) Another six man main event tonight sees an unchanged BULLET CLUB squad of EVIL, Dick Togo and Taiji Ishimori take on an LIJ team that sees BUSHI substituted out for SANADA. Naito has EVIL in his sights, while Taiji Ishimori made his feelings very about Hiromu Takahashi very clear Sunday. At the Korakuen Hall series opener, Ishimori laid out Takahashi with Bloody Cross after the bell before declaring that he would be challenging for the junior gold. In response, Hiromu would state backstage that while he hated the way Ishimori made the challenge, he’d be more than happy to accept. Still, whether either championship affair becomes official, much ground needs to be laid by prospective challengers. Meanwhile, SANADA should have some very interesting interactions with EVIL in this match. EVIL’s shocking defection to BULLET CLUB destroyed their two time IWGP Tag Championship team, and Cold Skull will wants answers of his own from the King of Darkness. 5th Match: CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada & SHO) vs BULLET CLUB (Yujiro Takahashi & Gedo) In a rematch from Sunday, SHO teams up with Kazuchika Okada to take on Yujiro Takahashi and Gedo. Okada has mysterious plans in mind for the future to move onto, but the question is whether Yujiro and Gedo will let him. Yujiro has pledged that he ‘will not give up’ when it comes to getting jealous revenge; what does he have in store? 4th Match: Master Wato, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Kota Ibushi vs Suzuki-Gun (Yoshinobu Kanemaru, DOUKI, Taichi & Zack Sabre Junior) More eight man tag action for Suzuki-Gun sees them make a slight change in the lineup as DOUKI comes in for El Desperado to take on Wato, Tenzan, Tanahashi and Ibushi. Sunday, it was Suzuki-Gun standing tall as Tenzan was forced to submit to a vicious armbar. Can Golden☆Ace rally tonight and stake a strong claim for the IWGP Tag Team Championships? 3rd Match: Yuji Nagata & Yuya Uemura vs Suzuki-Gun (Minoru Suzuki & El Desperado) El Desperado moves from eight man tag action on July 25 to teaming with The King in Korakuen on the 26th. Despe will look to take hard hitting frustration out on Young Lion Uemura here while Nagata and Suzuki will no doubt have their hands full with one another as they seem inseparable en route to a singles contest at some point in the near future. 2nd Match: CHAOS (YOSHI-HASHI & Toru Yano) vs Los Ingobernabels De Japon (BUSHI & Shingo Takagi) Shingo Takagi again butts heads with CHAOS and YOSHI-HASHI tonight, albeit this time with Toru Yano in the Headhunter’s corner as Shingo teams with BUSHI. What’s next for Takagi and the NEVER Openweight Championship? Could his next challenger come from his opponents tonight? Or perhaps even his junior heavyweight teammate? 1st Match: Ryusuke Taguchi, Satoshi Kojima & Togi Makabe vs Gabriel Kidd, Hirooki Goto & Tomohiro Ishii The trio of Taguchi, Kojima and Makabe stick together for the third night running in our opener, as they face Gabriel Kidd, Tomohiro Ishii and Hirooki Goto, in this match while Toru Yano teams with YOSHI-HASHI in the second. Kidd and Goto worked extremely well together in their tag bout at Dominion, and effective teamwork could make the difference when it comes to Kidd impressing his veteran opponents, and Togi Makabe in particular, into a potential singles contest.
  16. Main event: Los Ingobernables De Japon (BUSHI, Hiromu Takahashi & Tetsuya Naito) vs BULLET CLUB (Dick Togo, Taiji Ishimori & EVIL) A rematch from last week’s New Japan Road card in Korakuen headlines the first night of Summer Struggle. Much can change in a week, however, and the background to this trios match has been significantly shaped by the events of Sengoku Lord. In Nagoya, Hiromu Takahashi proved he is not only the equal of any heavyweight champion, but the clear better of EVIL. A visual pinfall with Time Bomb II over the double IWGP champion should by rights see Hiromu walk into Korakuen Hall with three belts tonight, but Dick Togo saw to it that the King of Darkness retained. Post match, Taiji Ishimori appeared to pick the bones of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, and it seems clear that the Bone Soldier is moving to challenge for the title for the first time since last May. Takahashi not only seeks to reassert his superiority over EVIL, but to also get some revenge on Dick Togo for last night’s interference and Ishimori for his post match attack. For former champion Naito meanwhile, the chance to make a case for a Dominion rematch. It was this that was on El Ingobernables mind more than rescuing teammate Takahashi last night in Nagoya, as he stared down the King of Darkness and stated that the ‘IWGP rental period is over’. After EVIL responded that revenge would be his, Naito will have to make actions speak louder than words, and state his case physically tonight. 5th Match: CHAOS (SHO & Kazuchika Okada) vs BULLET CLUB (Gedo & Yujiro Takahashi) After their combined efforts were foiled by Kazuchika Okada in singles action in Nagoya, Yujiro Takahashi and Gedo now formally team up to take on Okada and SHO. On paper, and on current form, this should be a breeze for the CHAOS tandem, but one never knows just what BULLET CLUB have up their sleeves. Meanwhile Okada and SHO seem to have their eyes on bigger things. SHO wants a singles contest with SANADA after a submission loss last night, but will need to prove himself in action tonight. As for Okada, will we learn more about his ‘controversial’ idea for NJPW? Maybe a win will put him in a sharing mood. 4th Match: Master Wato, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Kota Ibushi vs Suzuki-Gun (Yoshinobu Kanemaru, El Desperado, Taichi & Zack Sabre Junior) Eight man tag action is third on the Korakuen agenda. Golden☆Ace seek to continue build their case for an IWGP Tag Team Championship rematch against Dangerous Tekkers, while Master Wato will continue his issues with Yoshinobu Kanemaru. Kanemaru finds himself reunited with regular partner El Desperado tonight; how will Suzuki-Gun’s masked master react after his loss to NEVER Openweight Champion Shingo Takagi last night? 3rd Match: Yuji Nagata & Yuya Uemura vs Suzuki-Gun (Minoru Suzuki & DOUKI) Ever since a hard fought victory for Yuji Nagata over Minoru Suzuki in the New Japan Cup, Suzuki has been hell bent on a rematch, going as far as calling for the ‘public execution’ of Blue Justice in the form of a singles contest. Their issue will continue to erupt tonight, but the addition of Yuya Uemura in Nagata’s corner adds some interesting spice. Since back in February, Uemura has been targeting the King, and will no doubt seek to test himself in similar form tonight, whether or not that’s the smartest gameplan to bring into this tag team bout. 2nd Match: CHAOS (YOSHI-HASHI & Hirooki Goto) vs Los Ingobernables De Japon (SANADA & Shingo Takagi) It’s been a busy few weeks for Shingo Takagui, as the fighting NEVER Openweight Champion successfully rebuffed both SHO and El Desperado in a two week span. Now finally back in possession of his championship gold, it seems hard to imagine that The Dragon won’t be looking for his next challenger, especially with the big stage of Jingu Stadium looming large at the end of August. The other three men in this tag team encounter are all seeking to create their own narratives as a busy Summer Struggle tour gets underway; possibilities in Korakuen are plentiful. 1st Match: Ryusuke Taguchi, Satoshi Kojima & Togi Makabe vs Gabriel Kidd, Toru Yano & Tomohiro Ishii Action in the Summer Struggle series kicks off with a rematch from last night in Nagoya, Gabriel Kidd teaming with CHAOS’ Toru Yano & Tomohiro Ishii to face Ryusuke Taguchi, Satoshi Kojima & Togi Makabe. For some time now, Gabriel Kidd has been asking for a singles contest with Makabe, as he seeks to battle the vicious ‘Unchained Gorilla’ of yore. Makabe has some respect for the young Briton’s style, but won’t be taken lightly, and will be teaching some violent lessons tonight in Korakuen.
  17. Who gives a fuck about Isiah Carter anymore I could of swore he retired.
  18. Main event: IWGP Intercontinental & Heavyweight Championship: EVIL vs Hiromu Takahashi Hiromu Takahashi’s long held ambition has been to carry the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship into a main event title match against the IWGP Heavyweight Champion. At Sengoku Lord on July 25, he lives his dream, but in nightmarish circumstances. Through the New Japan Cup, Takahashi had targeted victory and an Intercontinental & Heavyweight Championship match with Tetsuya Naito, a bout that fate denied him and fans back on March 3 at the now cancelled Anniversary Event. That plan was derailed when he was defeated by Kazuchika Okada, but a bitter defeat turned into utter despair for the Time Bomb as EVIL defected from LIJ to join BULLET CLUB, before bringing in Dick Togo as the difference maker to take the double IWGP gold from Naito. Hiromu Takahashi not only had his dream match taken away from him, but saw the destruction of a long held bond with EVIL; one that stretches long before fans came to know who the Time Bomb and King of Darkness were. EVIL’s betrayal cut Takahashi the deepest, as he reacted with an emotional breakdown at the end of the evening in Osaka Jo Hall Sunday. Now Hiromu heads to challenge the new champion, a monumental task and a the biggest match of the Time Bonmb’s career, at the shortest of notices. Can Hiromu take the element of wild surprise? Or will his emotions get the better of the Junior Heavyweight Champion in Nagoya? At New Japan Road on Monday in Korakuen, BULLET CLUB scored a victory over LIJ, with a Dick Togo wire assisted choke being the difference maker. Post match, EVIL showed that he could easily put his challenger away before saying he’d save his finishing blow for Nagoya, promising to ‘send (Takahashi) to hell’. The frustrated challenger certainly has the deck stacked against him Saturday. 6th Match: NEVER Openweight Championship: Shingo Takagi vs El Desperado In the semi-main event, Shingo Takagi defends the NEVER Openweight Championship for the second time in two weeks as he takes on El Desperado. Desperado has been one of several junior heavyweights wanting to take advantage of the NEVER title’s openweight status of late. After SHO came up just shy of putting The Dragon away in an intense battle at Dominion, it wasn’t altogether shocking to see ‘Despe’ move to make a challenge. Yet the manner in which he did it was a shock, attacking Shingo on his exit from Osaka Jo Hall, and making away with the championship belt itself, as he mocked Shingo with a jeer of ‘you know what this means, don’t you’. During the New Japan Cup, Desperado reaffirmed what long time followers already knew when he faced Tomohiro Ishii. Despe is a junior heavyweight wrestler with heavyweight knock out power, and his anything goes style could have Shingo Takagi in serious trouble. At Osaka Jo Hall, Desperado did significant damage, not to the champion’s body, but to his pride when he took away the NEVER gold. Desperado’s larceny continued into New Japan Road on Monday; could he push Takagi’s buttons enough to force the Dragon into a fatal mistake? 5th Match: Kazuchika Okada vs Yujiro Takahashi Yujiro Takahashi’s interference during the New Japan Cup final in Osaka Jo Hall help set up EVIL to reign atop New Japan Pro-Wrestling and BULLET CLUB. It was a slice of history repeating for the Tokyo Pimp; six years prior at Dontaku 2014, it was Yujiro’s defection from CHAOS to BULLET CLUB that saw AJ Styles take IWGP gold at Okada’s expense. Then, Yujiro claims with disgust, Okada had bigger fish to fry than Yujiro and his defection. The Rainmaker would go on to treat his G1 Climax bout with Takahashi like any other group match, before winning the tournament and heading to the Tokyo Dome. ‘You never made a fuss about it, and that’s why I hate you’, Yujiro stated backstage in Osaka after a furious Dominion assault aided and abetted by Gedo. Takahashi makes no bones that he doesn’t have the superstar status of his opponent in Nagoya. ‘But if I can’t be at your level, I’ll drag you down to mine’. Expect that to be the theme of this grudge match at Sengoku Lord. Yujiro will not fight cleanly, but a furious Okada will be hell bent on revenge, and making sure that Takahashi’s time in the spotlight will be brief. Can Takahashi take advantage of a rattled Rainmaker, and score a landmark victory? 4th Match: Kota Ibushi, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Master Wato, Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Yuji Nagata vs Suzuki-Gun (Zack Sabre Junior, Taichi, Minoru Suzuki, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & DOUKI) Ten man tag team action will be fourth on the agenda from Nagoya. After a dominant victory in Osaka Jo Hall saw Dangerous Tekkers take the IWGP Tag Team Championships for the first time at Golden☆Ace’s first defence, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kota Ibushi must try to bounce back against Zack Sabre Junior and Taichi; if they are in the physical condition to do so after the assault at Dominion. Meanwhile Master Wato’s issues with Yoshinobu Kanemaru continue to heat up after Kanemaru ruined Wato’s post debut victory celebration at the New Japan Cup finals. On Monday night, Kanemaru struck Wato with Deep Impact, only to pull the young star up from a pinfall to deliver Touch Out for an emphatic victory. The Heel Master certainly taught a lesson to young Wato last week, and now the Grand Master must think of a way to bounce back. Yuji Nagata and Minoru Suzuki’s own brands of violence make up yet another narrative in this busy match. At the end of their eight man clash Monday in Korakuen, nobody could separate the King and Blue Justice as they continued to brawl after the bell. Suzuki has since demanded a singles contest, and it’s hard to imagine Nagata backing down. Their interactions here will add another layer to an explosive ten man tag team bout. 3rd Match: CHAOS (SHO, YOSHI-HASHI & Hirooki Goto) vs Los Ingobernables De Japon (Tetsuya Naito, SANADA & BUSHI) What a difference a weekend makes. Before July 11, Los Ingobernables De japon were the dominant force in NJPW, with Intercontinental and Heavyweight Champion at its helm. On July 13, the world woke up to EVIL now in BULLET CLUB colours, and with both IWGP Championships, as well as NEVER 6-Man gold, with question marks surrounding that championship’s status. While Shingo Takagi and Hiromu Takahashi are both at the top of the card tonight in Nagoya, the remaining LIJ members have to try and make sense of what has happened in the month of July and how best to move forward. Meanwhile CHAOS will be looking to get a decisive statement win to bring their faction back to the forefront. 2nd Match: Ryusuke Taguchi, Tomoaki Honma, Togi Makabe & Satoshi Kojima vs Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, Yota Tsuji & Gabriel Kidd Second up is eight man tag team action. Yota Tsuji and Gabriel Kidd have been impressing greatly of late, and now have former IWGP Tag Team Champion partners in Tomohiro Ishii and Toru Yano of CHAOS, but will that be enough of a combination to match their impressive opponents tonight? 1st Match: Taiji Ishimori vs Yuya Uemura Sengoku Lord will kick off with Yuya Uemura in singles action against Taiji Ishimori. Uemura made the most of NJPW’s time away through the spring, getting much bigger physically and much more skilled in the ring. That led to an impressive New japan Cup first round performance, albeit one that led to defeat at the hands of Yoshinobu Kanemaru. With hype building around the impressive Young Lion however, can he make a mark against one of the most decorated junior heavyweights of all time in Ishimori?
