NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 26: 5/13/19 - 6/5/19



The 26th annual Best of the Super Juniors tournament is here to kickstart the Summer of New Japan Pro Wrestling. The anticipated international field with the best junior heavyweights the world has to offer, from the home promotion itself, to partners, & anything in-between. 2019's tournament Finals will conclude at the iconic Ryogoku Sumo Hall, instantly making this year's final night an instant classic for all involved.

*Announced field yet to come.

Will be weird with no Kushida and presumably no Ospreay.

But now we have Shingo so thatís cool. Hopefully if rumors are true Hiromu could be back for them too.

And if you could get ROH to loan guys like Gresham and Bandido, I wonít complain.

if Bandido isn't in this, I'm rioting.....or at least bitching on the internet.

I am expecting both Gresham and Bandido to be in the tournament. Shingo will be a finalist I'm betting.

The inevitable Shingo vs SHO match is where the early ticket is with me. That's got to happen here with all the teasing going on + Shingo's status as still not taking a loss since joining New Japan. They're working me for sure, atm.

On board with ROH sending over Gresham & Bandido. The fresh matches with both of them in the mix, sounds so great. Just depends on how the scheduling works out to be gone for the better part of a month. Fingers crossed.

Hiromu making his return would make me stupidly happy.

If ROH were to send Bandido and Gresham, I hope they send Haskins as well. He'd fit in real well, I reckon.
Ham and Egger likes this.

Hoping that Shingo vs sho ends up being the final, if Takahashi isn't back, as it would be a great way to rebuild the division after losing kushida, Takahashi and Ospreay (all through different means.) Have it the final now with shingo winning then have a slow build to rematch at Wrestle Kingdom with Sho becoming next Jr Ace.

El Phantasmo will probably be in it, will be interesting to see how he'll do as a heel since his moveset is rather entertaining unlike what most people in BC do. He also has RevPro's cruiser weight title match on May 10th and it feels like it should end with him finally beating David Starr. So that title might be in play for this tournament as well considering that NJPW likes to use RevPro's heavyweight title.

Despite no Hiromu announcement, the talent announcement is still superb despite the loss of Liger, Kushida & Hiromu. I probably favour Shingo to win as it is right now but they might use the time in Sumo Hall to put over Ospreay.

I got everyone I wanted from Ospreay, Shingo, Gresham, Bandido, and others.

Just makes you wonder who the mystery man is.
