Here's some stuff to look forward to in the early new year that's not Wrestle Kingdom:

- Yuji Hino (c) vs. Yuji Okabayashi for the ZERO-1 Heavyweight Title on 1/1 @antoniomare007

  • Kaito Kiyomiya (c) vs. Go Shiozaki for the GHC Heavyweight Title on 1/4
  • Michael Elgin vs. Katsuhiko Nakakima on the same show @MC

Look at the year these two have had, this is not even taking into account the "just fun" stuff they've always involved in. I don't think there's anyone else who's had a better 2019 when you take into account the excellence in both singles and tag matches, specially with different partners and opponents.

I tried not to repeat any matches were both of them were involved (just kept the ones that worked as build up to Okabayashi vs Nomura).

Naruki Doi beat Ben-K today to win the Open The Dream Gate Championship. It's surprisingly only the 2nd time he's won the title and his last win was 11 years ago at Final Gate '08.

Just ordered the Wrestle Kingdom package on FiteTV, which includes both Tokyo Dome events and New Year's Dash all in their entirety.

I've never seen a full New Year's Dash before as I typically just watch the hot angle that inevitably comes from the event, so it'll be cool to see the whole thing.

Kento Miyahara beat Jake Lee... again. He is the Triple Crown Champion... still. Ridiculous.
He was always winning. He's scheduled to beat Kawada's defence record. He'll lose to Nomura post CC.

Are fans not getting restless? It just feels SO incredibly forced when he's beating the same guys over and over again...
It doesn't seem like it. The crowds love Kento, still. I guess the bad effect it has is more the other guys don't feel like main eventers (that already aren't ME guys like Suwama and Ishikawa, etc) opposed to them getting sick of him.

Takuya Nomura challenging Daichi for the Strong Heavyweight belt on February in Osaka. Don't think he wins it but it might be a build for Young Gawd to win the Strong Climb and win the belt in a rematch. At least that's what I'm hoping
:damn:
:feedme:



Abe is challenging Yuya Aoki for the Jr. belt in Korakuen in February too. That match could be a BANGER if Aoki shows up to fight

MLW & Dragon Gate have formed a partnership. More on that coming soon.

Kento Miyahara's next Triple Crown defense is set for 2/11 and the opponent is... Yuma Aoyagi. :rolleyes: This defense will tie Kawada's record.
