When I think about it, Tanahashi should be the champ until January 4th 2012. Let him retain the title 6-7 times through 2012 - Okada, Anderson, MVP, Makabe, Tanaka, Yano, Nagata one more time, and then - Wrestle Kngdom VII, Tetsuya Naito becomes the new IWGP Champion and a new superstar and face of New Japan, because he just ended Tana's 2 year reign. Tana's reign is being great, and there's few more credible challengers to make it even better. My two cents.
