    Apparently, the G1 next year will been moved to the Autumn due to the Olympics which takes place in Japan next year. Interesting. It'll help the drought that is Autumn to Winter of the usual New Japan schedule.

    That's gonna be pretty weird to not have a G1 during July-August but I suppose we'll have plenty sport to watch that Summer with Euro 2020 and the Olympics going on. Might make for a nice autumn pick me up with September/October usually being a dull time in wrestling.

    I love it, no more dumbass briefcase or defending title shots before the Dome.


    We can tell other people about...having faith. What we had faith in. What we found important enough to fight for. It's not whether you were right or wrong, but how much faith you were willing to have, that decides the future~

    According Meltzer on WOR, the plans for Wrestle Kingdom look to be Okada vs Ibushi on day one with the winner facing the IWGP Intercontinental Champion on day two. I would assume there would be an IC title match on day one as well with Naito or White against someone, maybe each other. That would be a great idea for Wrestle Kingdom, it would give you bigger stakes for both shows that would boost attendance.

    I don't know. According to LIJ fans, Gedo hates Naito so why would Naito win?

    I wonder if they plan to merge the two titles or just have the winner vacate the Intercontinental championship.

    What is even the point of the IC belt and the NEVER belt? Do they really need 2 mid card titles?

    The downside of that is you're making Okada Vs Ibushi 100% predictable because they'll run Okada Vs Naito. You're also downgrading the importance of winning the G1 if people who didn't win the tournament get to main event the 2nd show, which is going to be seen as the more important show if that has the unification match.

    I don't like it. I'd rather they had just concentrated on building a number of title matches on the card that people want to see and then support it with stuff like Liger's retirement match with Suzuki rather than this EVOLVE approach of well whoever is champion after night 1 of the weekend will defend again the following night~!
