    NJPW Wrestle Kingdom IX - January 4th 2015





    ANNOUNCED CARD




    IWGP Heavyweight Championship
    Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) Vs Kazuchika Okada



    IWGP Intercontinental Championship
    Shinsuke Nakamura (c) Vs Kota Ibushi




    NEVER Championship
    Tomohiro Ishii (c) Vs Togi Makabe




    JR Heavyweight Championship
    Ryusuke Taguchi (c) Vs Kenny Omega




    Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Championship
    reDRagon (c) Vs Time Splitters Vs Forever Hooligans Vs The Young Bucks




    UWF Rules
    Kazushi Sakuraba Vs Minoru Suzuki



    IWGP Tag Team Championship
    Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows (c) Vs Hirooki Goto and Katsuyori Shibata



    Protect Ya Neck Match
    Tetsuya Naito Vs AJ Styles



    6 Man Tag
    Hiroyoshi Tenzen, Satoshi Kojima and Tomoaki Honma Vs Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Jeff Jarrett and Yujiro Takahashi)



    8 Man Tag
    Toru Yano and his friends Vs Suzuki-Gun (Takashi Iizuka, Shelton Benjamin and Killer Elite Squad)

    ----------------

    That's all we've got so far, but Naito Vs AJ Styles is pretty much a certainty, and I'm expecting Goto and Shibata to win Tag League and challenge Anderson and Gallows. Bit worried there's going to be too many matches at this rate because there's still Legends tags, NWA shit, Fale/Bullet Club shit that I expect to be added, and I heard the show is being cut to 4 hours this year? Not sure if that's just the GFW feed or the live show all together.

    I guess I can't blame them going back to Okada/Tanahashi when they've resisted it for over a year, and nothing else they could of done would of felt more worthy of main eventing. With Ibushi/Nakamura getting a rematch from their fantastic G1 match last year, that makes for a more exciting 1-2 than Hashi/Naka and Okada/Naito last year. YAY for Ishii getting a singles match at WK, although a match with Makabe doesn't excite me too much. Goto and Shibata seem wasted against Anderson/Gallows.

    Eh, card so far doesn't look to tantalizing aside from their 1-2 of a sure thing Hashi/Okada bout and Naka/Ibushi.

    I want to wait and see on the tag league because if the plan is for another team to win (Goto/Shibata started out 0-3) and frees up those two for either singles matches or a tag against NOAH guys that makes this card significantly better than to put them with the Bullet Club hacks.

    I would rate exactly one of the Tanahashi/Okada matches as actively good, BUT Okada's gotten better from where he was back then when he was horribly Overrated so there's some mild interest there.

    If there are two singles wrestlers who do more things that annoy me than Nakamura and Ibushi I can't think of them. Not holding my breath for a repeat of the G1 match.

    Ishii/Makabe is getting underrated. I expect a really fun and good brawling match that the crowd will be hot for.

    Both of the Jrs matches do absolutely nothing for me.

    Ditto for Devitt/Taguchi.

    Suzuki/Sakuraba is a sleeper show stealer if both guys are motivated for this. And if they aren't motivated to have a good match with THIS. It's time to just cut ties with them. Wish they were doing actual UWF Rules instead of the KO/Tap thing. Just because it'd be much different and just cooler.

    The US show will probably be missing a few of the undercard matches but JR is a true draw from the looks of it. I hope it all goes well. With their deep pockets NJPW's easily the most likely to take over as #2 company in the US if this show does positive numbers and they get some traction.

    Will watch. I dont pay attention to any of this stuff so i know nobody.

    Is Saku vs Suzuki going to be MMA or like a wrestling MMA hybrid?

    Oh it'll be a worked match, it'll probably look a little different from the rest of the show. I don't think know for sure but consensus seems to be it won't be true UWF rules which used a points system and was true Shoot style pro wrestling, but more like if WWE advertised an "MMA Rules" match with only KOs and tapouts allowed.

    I don't know if this has been discussed in other threads, but I wonder how much New Japan World will end up hurting the PPV buys for this show. With the GFW version costing $35 (May be more in HD), it's a much better deal to get it with New Japan World for something like eight dollars and some change while also having the service for a full month.

    Literally Jim Ross is the only draw to order the GFW version of this show.

    Exactly. They're expecting Americans to buy the GFW version for the JR commentary.

    I hope Steve Corino is going to do color for this event. JR and Corino would kill it.

    People need to stop sucking Corino's dick.

    JR's def the only draw, but is still a very unique draw.

    Re: Wrestle Kingdom IX - January 4th 2015

    As expected, Goto and Shibata won the Tag League after beating Gallows and Anderson, they'll now go onto face the Tag Champions at WrestleKingdom..............erm Gallows and Anderson again. I watched the final last night, decent, but nothing you should go out of your way to watch. That's Gallows and Anderson in a nutshell, they've been together for a year now, champs for the majority of that time, and they've not had one great match. Gallows has been a major disappointment in Japan.

    Also, El Desperado stole the NWA Jr Title off Liger, so I'm guessing that's going to be another match as well.

    Re: Wrestle Kingdom IX - January 4th 2015

    Expected, still hate Goto being stuck with Gallows.

    Some announced matches...

    TenCozy + Honma vs Jarrett, Fale, & Yujiro (Oh boy)

    Yano & "X" vs Suzuki-gun (I'm assuming Iizuka & Someone...I have no idea who X could possibly be unless it's someone we've seen already in this spot like Muta or Bob Sapp. I'm still rooting for Kendo Kashin.)

    Also a New Japan Rambo match (basically a Royal Rumble) will be the pre-show match and will start 45 minutes before the show. Also announced is that there won't be an intermission this year to get the 10 main show matches in on time.

    Re: Wrestle Kingdom IX - January 4th 2015

    Suzuki-Gun = Iizuka and maybe the return of Shelton X Benjamin? I know he hasn't been seen since G1, but it's a logical place to bring him back. Otherwise, safe bet is that Iizuka's partner will be a junior, whether it's El Desperado, TAKA or Taichi. If it's one of the juniors, that would make it more logical that Yano's mystery partner will be a junior as well, right?

    Shelton's who I thought of but since WWE filed the copyright claim I'm kinda getting a vibe his NJPW days are numbered. I was also thinking Takayama to make a one night return. Yano's partner is anyone's guess.

    It'd be fun for Taichi to win the Rambo.

    When people talk about Wrestling in January it usually about who will be the Royal Rumble winner this year, but don't forget about Wrestle Kingdom it carries that weight of great moments, and matches like no other.

    Maybe I'm going to come off like a total dick, but uh...this is a Wrestle Kingdom thread. I think everyone knows that it's a major show.
