Re: NJPW Destruction: 9/4 - 9/22

Seeing how the IWGP and Never Openweight titles are being defended at Royal Quest, we'll see an IC, US, and Jr. Title match on these shows.

Mox vs. Juice seems obvious. I wonder who Naito gets. I know he's being matched up against White in a tag match at Royal Quest. But they waited so long to do the 1st match, hard to imagine them doing it again so quick on the Destruction Tour.

And I'm guess Ospreay vs. ELP for this as well?

Naito vs Taichi.

I expect Juice vs Moxley No DQ for KOPW at this rate. But we'll see.

Re: NJPW Destruction: 9/4 - 9/22

Naito vs Jay for IC could work well here as then they could always do Naito vs Sanada or Evil at KOPW, as LIJ aren't your typical Njpw faction.

Would be great for them to do Juice vs Moxley here so that they can do face different opponents at KOPW. Really want to see Juice vs Archer at one point. And if Jericho returns for KOPW, then Moxley could face Okada at KOPW.

Ospreay and Ibushi could also have defences here to with Ospreay facing either ELP or BOSJ winner and Ibushi facing Sanada.

With Kenta vs Ishii in UK, can definitely see Ibushi vs Kenta for Ibushi's shot at KOPW now.

Naito/Taichi for Beppu.
Ibushi/KENTA for Kagoshima.
Not sure who mains Kobe. I think that Okada/Sanada could, but what they'd do for KoPW then? Ibushi/Evil wouldn't be big enough I think.

Re: NJPW Destruction: 9/4 - 9/22

Naito vs Chase

Have to imagine one of these will have KENTA vs Goto. Maybe even Goto/Ishii vs KENTA/White.

You would hope they wouldn't do Okada vs. Sanada for the 4th time this year. But with Okada pretty much having to defend the belt again after 8/31, who else could it be?

Regardless, don't see it happening on the Destruction Tour. Naito vs. White/Taichi, Mox vs. Juice, Ospreay vs. ELP, and I guess a Jr. Tag defense.

Ishimori and ELP are the champions right? Is it sad that I forgot that?

Re: NJPW Destruction: 9/4 - 9/22

Fantasy booking time! Here's what I would do/what I think they'll do going off the format of last year:

The Korakuen shows will be main evented by a Jr. Tag Title defense, some 10-Man Elimination Matches, and maybe some kind of special tag like White & KENTA vs. Okada & Ospreay or something idk.

Destruction in Beppu
Special Singles Match: Goto vs. Shingo (Goto gets his win back to eventually challenge KENTA)
IC Title: Naito vs. Taichi

Destruction in Kagoshima
Jr. Title: Ospreay vs. Phantasmo (this may not even happen at all tbh depending on the J-Cup)
WK Rights Contract: Ibushi vs. KENTA

Destruction in Kobe
Some kind of big tag match(es) and a NEVER 6-Man Title defense down the card
US Title No DQ Match: Moxley vs. Juice III (this will be the drawing test for Moxley)

You can probably just put the Jr. Title match on the Kobe card to help the drawing power because I imagine people are gonna flock to see Ibushi in the main event of his hometown against that asshole KENTA in Kagoshima.

Btw I don't want them to do Okada/SANADA again either at KOPW but Gedo probably will cause I'm not really sure what else they can do for Okada to pass the time unless they wanna go ahead and get Okada/White out of the way. I would also hold off doing Naito/White again this soon. Definitely not on the Destruction tour.

Also if Tanahashi wins the British Title we have even more options!

Re: NJPW Destruction: 9/4 - 9/22

The Okada vs EVIL vs SANADA idea could work. English commentary isn't much of an authority, but they did constantly spin the notion of how championship matches could work post-Climax and that EVIL d. SANADA, SANADA d. Okada, and Okada d. EVIL. So, I mean, there's wiggle room to set up another three way main event for KOPW two years in a row. And why not? Varies up the Okada vs SANADA scenario and puts EVIL back in another championship match too with dynamics vs Okada & his tag partner.

Something I'll be keeping an eye out for once the Destruction cards begin to be fleshed out. Long shot, but what the heck. We all know Okada has got to have at least one more defense following Suzuki.

Re: NJPW Destruction: 9/4 - 9/22

I don't know, I think it would open up the door for stupid stuff that I don't want to see in NJPW. Suppose 5 people, including the champ, pinned each other in G1, so are we going to do a 5-way now at KoPW?
