    NJPW EVENT CARDS FOR OCTOBER & SEPTEMBER 2013
    http://puroresuspirit.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/njpw-event-cards-for-september-october-2013/

  5. Notes: 3 / 10 months ago 

    [NJPW News] New Japan held a press conference for the IWGP signing ceremony for their upcoming iPPV on June 22nd. Which sees the main event as Kazuchika Okada defends the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Togi Makabe.

    Outside of the shows, both men have seemed to be quiet about the upcoming match as whole. Thought it seems Makabe is going into the show with confidence that he will not fall victim to the young Okada once more, while Okada is looking to claim his second successful defense and carry on with his reign through the G1 Climax in August. Okada’s only aim is to do his best against Makabe and to bring a fierce and intense match-up if it comes down to it.
    There will be some pressure on Okada to retain his championship on 6.22 as it was this event last year when Okada lost the belt back to Hiroshi Tanahashi. The ultimate question that is up in the air at this time is who will walk out the rightful champion on 6/22, The Rainmaker or the Unchained Gorilla?

    ————————————————————————————————————————————-
    Among the main event for the IWGP Heavy between Okada and Makabe, there are another 8 matches to fill out the entirity of the show.

    Prince Devitt gets his rematch against Hiroshi Tanahashi following his BOSJ XX win on June 9th. Devitt completely dominated the every single opponent he faced in the BOSJ, not to say BULLET CLUB as a whole had a hand in that, and now he has his eyes set on going after Hiroshi Tanahashi who defeated him previously on March 3rd of this year.
    It has also been mentioned that the winner of this match could indeed be in line as the next challenger for IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
    Devitt has also stated that he would not relinquish the Jr. Heavyweight belt if he does indeed get a Heavyweight title opportunity.

    Hirooki Goto and Katsuyori Shibata will meet in the ring yet again as they try and settle who is the better of the two. The two have meet multiple times now in the ring and each time nothing has been officially settled via pinfall or submission. Will we seen another replay like from the May 3rd “Dontaku 2013” show, or will a true victor finally emerge?

    Tetsuya Naito will make his official in ring return since being forced out of action due to a severe knee injury that sidelined last October. Yujiro was the last person that Naito faced back in October and proceeded to do even more damage to Naito’s leg before it was all said and done. One has to think that Naito will be looking to exact revenge.

    Also announced is that Manabu Nakanishi will get the match against the NWA Champion Rob Conway. After repeated announcements that the NWA would be coming back to NJPW, Nakanishi has taken upon himself to accept the challenge and try and put an end to this NWA invasion. Satoshi Kojima already fell to the invading Conway, but Nakanishi just cannot stand by and let Conway and Bruce Tharpe talk down to his fellow NJPW and Japanese wrestlers.

    Both IWGP Tag Class belts will be defending on the show as TenCozy will be defending their newly won IWGP Heavy belts against “CHAOS” Yano & Iizuka and “Killer Elite Squad” Archer & Smith. The 3 way system has proven to be a wild card in the previous matches from this year and this could prove to be no different.
    Forever Hooligans, Romero & Koslov, will be defending the IWGP Jr. Tag belts against the TIME SPLITTERS, KUSHIDA & Shelley, in the opening match of the show. Both KUSHIDA and Shelley proved to be the better men over Romero and Koslov in the BOSJ and have earned themselves a shot to reclaim the belts which they lost to the Hooligans on May 3rd.

    Though unlike previously announced, Ryusuke Taguchi will not be a part of the show after being held back from competing in his scheduled the semi-final match of BOSJ. Taguchi was reported to have had a lot of pain in his hip, and it seems it will keep him out of action for an undisclosed amount of time.

    The event will be on live iPPV for $25 on 6/22 (4am Eastern, 3 am Central, 9 am for England).
    Update: As usual the event “will be” on instant video demand for a few days following the initial broadcast.

The 3 way system has proven to be a wild card in the previous matches from this year and this could prove to be no different.Forever Hooligans, Romero & Koslov, will be defending the IWGP Jr. Tag belts against the TIME SPLITTERS, KUSHIDA & Shelley, in the opening match of the show. Both KUSHIDA and Shelley proved to be the better men over Romero and Koslov in the BOSJ and have earned themselves a shot to reclaim the belts which they lost to the Hooligans on May 3rd.Ryusuke Taguchi will also be a part of the show after being held back from competing in his scheduled the semi-final match of BOSJ by the medical officers. Taguchi was reported to have had a lot of pain in his hip, but it seems it may have not been as serious as originally thought.The event will be on live iPPV for $25 on 6/22 (4am Eastern, 3 am Central, 9 am for England).Update: As usual the event “will be” on instant video demand for a few days following the initial broadcast. http://www.ustream.tv/njpwBelow is the scheduled event card in full.NJPW “DOMINION 6.22”, 6/22/2013 [Sat] 17:00 @ Osaka BODYMAKER COLOSSEUM in Osaka(0) Jushin Thunder Liger & Tiger Mask IV vs. TAKA Michinoku & Taichi(1) IWGP Junior Tag Championship Match: [35th Champions] “Forever Hooligans” Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov vs. [Challengers] “TIME SPLITTERS” KUSHIDA & Alex Shelley~ 1st title defense.(2) Yuji Nagata, Ryusuke Taguchi & Captain New Japan vs. “The Machine Gun” Karl Anderson, “BadBoy” Tama Tonga & “UnderBoss” Bad Luck Fale(3) IWGP Tag Championship 3 WAY Match: [62nd Champions] “TenCozy” Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima vs. [Challengers] “CHAOS” Toru Yano & Takashi Iizuka vs. “K.E.S.” Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr.~ 1st title defense.(4) NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match: [Champion] Rob Conway vs. [Challenger] Manabu Nakanishi(5) Shinsuke Nakamura & Tomohiro Ishii vs. Minoru Suzuki & Shelton “X” Benjamin(6) Tetsuya Naito’s Return Match: Tetsuya Naito vs. Yujiro Takahashi(7) Special Single Match: Hirooki Goto vs. Katsuyori Shibata(8) Special Single Match: Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Prince Devitt(9) IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match: [59th Champion] Kazuchika Okada vs. [Challenger] Togi Makabe~ 2nd title defense.

    [NJPW News] New Japan has announced the full card for the upcoming iPPV on June 22nd.

    Among the previously announced main event for the IWGP Heavy between Okada and Makabe, New Japan announced that Prince Devitt will indeed gets his rematch against Hiroshi Tanahashi following his BOSJ XX win on June 9th. Devitt completely dominated the every single opponent he faced in the BOSJ, not to say BULLET CLUB as a whole had a hand in that, and now he has his eyes set on going after Hiroshi Tanahashi who defeated him previously on March 3rd of this year.



    Hirooki Goto and Katsuyori Shibata will meet in the ring yet again as they try and settle who is the better of the two. The two have meet multiple times now in the ring and each time nothing has been officially settled via pinfall or submission. Will we seen another replay like from the May 3rd “Dontaku 2013” show, or will a true victor finally emerge?

    Tetsuya Naito will make his official in ring return since being forced out of action due to a severe knee injury that sidelined last October. Yujiro was the last person that Naito faced back in October and proceeded to do even more damage to Naito’s leg before it was all said and done. One has to think that Naito will be looking to exact revenge.

    Also announced is that Manabu Nakanishi will get the match against the NWA Champion Rob Conway. After repeated announcements that the NWA would be coming back to NJPW, Nakanishi has taken upon himself to accept the challenge and try and put an end to this NWA invasion. Satoshi Kojima already fell to the invading Conway, but Nakanishi just cannot stand by and let Conway and Bruce Tharpe talk down to his fellow NJPW and Japanese wrestlers.

    Both IWGP Tag Class belts will be defending on the show as TenCozy will be defending their newly won IWGP Heavy belts against “CHAOS” Yano & Iizuka and “Killer Elite Squad” Archer & Smith. The 3 way system has proven to be a wild card in the previous matches from this year and this could prove to be no different.
    Forever Hooligans, Romero & Koslov, will be defending the IWGP Jr. Tag belts against the TIME SPLITTERS, KUSHIDA & Shelley, in the opening match of the show. Both KUSHIDA and Shelley proved to be the better men over Romero and Koslov in the BOSJ and have earned themselves a shot to reclaim the belts which they lost to the Hooligans on May 3rd.

    Ryusuke Taguchi will also be a part of the show after being held back from competing in his scheduled the semi-final match of BOSJ by the medical officers. Taguchi was reported to have had a lot of pain in his hip, but it seems it may have not been as serious as originally thought.

    The event will be on live iPPV for $25 on 6/22 (4am Eastern, 3 am Central, 9 am for England).
    Update: As usual the event “will be” on instant video demand for a few days following the initial broadcast.

    [NJPW News] New Japan announced matches for the next big iPPV on June 22nd and Shinsuke Nakamura heads to CMLL.First up, Nakamura will be heading to compete in CMLL while the BOSJ XX is taking prominence during this next tour. He will be heading to Mexico next week on May 11th and will remain there for the next month until June 12th.Then New Japan officially announced 4 matches for the upcoming DOMINION iPPV on June 22nd.Okada pulled out his first successful defense against Minoru Suzuki this past weekend and already has his next challenger to be against Togi Makabe. Okada previously faced Makabe in last years G1 Climax, which saw Okada victorious, and this match is poised to be a revenge match for Makabe.Following the 4WAY IWGP Tag Championship match on 5.3, TenKoji have once again emerged as the champions. This definitely was not the way that the former champions in “K.E.S.” (Archer & Smith) wanted to have it settled as they were not even involved in the finish in anyway. You have to know that K.E.S. will be looking to reclaim their lost belts, but with yet another multi-team match that leaves a whole other dynamic to the match.Due to the double knochout finish from the 5.3 show, New Japan has once again placed Goto and Shibata in a single confrontation at DOMINION 6.22. Nothing was settled between the two in the last match and could this next showdown be yet a replay of this last bout, or will someone finally be standing in the end?Lastly, Tetsuya Naito announced his return to the ring on 5.3 to be on June 22nd. Naito has spent the last 7-8 months sidelined due to a knee injury and will be going against his former tag team partner and current rival in Yujiro Takahashi. Their last meeting saw Yujiro blatantly attack Naito’s knee and that lead to Naito being forced out to undergo surgery on his knee. Will Naito be able to exact some much needed revenge or will his time away from the ring prove to be too much against “Mr. R Rated”?~ Be sure to check out the link below for the information regarding the BOSJ XX which begins later this month.http://wp.me/p1NzQs-3NMBelow is the announced card at this time for the DOMINION 6.22 show.New Japan Pro Wrestling “DOMINION 6.22”, 6/22/2013 [Sat] 17:00 Osaka BODY MAKER COLOSSEUM (Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium)(-) Tetsuya Naito’s Return Match: Tetsuya Naito vs. Yujiro Takahashi(-) Special Single Match: Hirooki Goto vs. Katsuyori Shibata(-) IWGP Tag Championship 3WAY Match: [62nd Champions] Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima vs. [Challengers] Toru Yano & Takashi Iizuka vs. [Challengers] Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr.~ 1st title defense.(-) IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match: [59th Champion] Kazuchika Okada vs. [Challenger] Togi Makabe~ 2nd title defense.

Both men can play brutal with the best of them, and I already expect nothing but that in their confrontation.The winner of the New Japan Cup will earn the next the IWGP Heavyweight Championship match against Hiroshi Tanahashi on April 9 at Ryogoku Kokugikan.

  10. Notes: 5 / 1 year ago 
    [NJPW News] New Japan announced the full card for their upcoming iPPV which will be held on February 10th.Among the newly announced matches are 4 matches that have been set in place following the show on February 3rd. Kazuchika Okada will be taking on Minoru Suzuki in the semi-final match of the show, with Okada looking to prove himself against the leader of Suzuki-gun. It has been a war between the two leading heel units in New Japan today with CHAOS vs. Suzuki-gun as of late, and on the 2/3 show Okada challenged Suzuki to a singles match for the 2/10 show. It didn’t take long for NJPW to announce the match on the upcoming iPPV and it will surely be one to cause a rift between the two heel factions.Shinsuke Nakamura will also be defending CHAOS as he takes on another member of Suzuki-gun in K-DOJO’s Kengo Mashimo. Mashimo is known as of the more skilled wrestlers in the Indy scene in Japan and on the 2/3 show him and Nakamura showed their hatred against one another. It seemed a match would be coming soon following, and it was announced to happen on 2/10. This will be a big opportunity for Mashimo to show his skill against the current IWGP Intercontinental Champion in a non-title match. Who knows, if he can pull out the upset win he would surely be in line for a rematch with the belt on the line.Hirooki Goto made a shocking announcement on the 2/3 show at calling out, his friend since High School, Katsuyori Shibata. It may have seemed like Laughter7 was done in NJPW after them both losing at the big WRESTLE KINGDOM show, but after the announcement of their inclusion on the upcoming show they might have more still left to do. Goto might not have gotten the single match he wanted, but he will be teaming with Wataru Inoue (who is far from a stranger of the two) as they take on the Laughter7 duo.The last of the special matches announced with see Makabe going one on one against Yujiro Takahashi. Yujiro has taken it upon himself to attack Makabe physically and verbally after their matches scheduled tag matches this month. Makabe will be surely looking for revenge, and Yujiro will have to contend with the very angry Unchained Gorilla face to face. Will Yujiro prove himself as the better man that he thinks he is, or will Makabe shut up the Playboy?This event will be offered on live iPPV on NJPW’s USTREAM channel for $25.
