    NJPW 2018 Best Theme Song Tournament: NJPW Edition

    After talking with the people in power of this fine website, it was determined that I will be succeeding Panther's successful WWE centered theme song tournament, with one entirety based on the music from the far east. For a long time, it felt like every Asian wrestler I knew of in America came out to some "Oriental sounding" flute music or some such stereotypical things like that. (Which could also be pretty badass at times admittedly, TAKA's theme was great, let's be real) Seeing NJPW's themes are a far cry from that, as is the norm for Japanese wrestling, though you'll still some music native to Japan interspersed into their themes, often leading to heavier music more akin to usual theme music.

    The field will be 52 entrance songs from all the heavy hitters of the usual guys. I've made an executive decision to exclude guys that are not ROH contracted guys in some form or fashion or at least regular players. So Hangman Page, Chuckie T, or anyone from the tag league or randos for the BOSJ will not be invited to the tournament. Cody, Minoru Suzuki, and Marty Scurll will be allowed entry due to their considerable standing in storyline to be in. And contracted gaijin such as Michael Elgin, Zack Sabre Jr., & Beretta will be in as well as Will Ospreay who is signed but has a special contract that allows him to wrestle elsewhere. There will also be tag team and group themes allowed. For example later on you will see a bracket with KES' theme as well as Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr.'s themes against each other, though hopefully that doesn't trigger Davey into throwing coffee on anyone.

    Later today (likely 12-20 hours from this post), there will be 4 play in brackets with 6 themes apiece to choose from posted, and those votes will go on until Sunday, with the winning 4 themes getting into the single elimination round of 32. From there it goes into the full bracket and it's one on one until we have a winner.

    Thanks to the efforts largely of Julia Claris, May's, Q-Brick, & Yonosuke Kitamura, we have a wide range of songs from a wide range of talent to go to. Who will be the king of music in NJPW? Now we'll get the chance to see in a NJPW exclusive tournament. Check out the songs, and maybe it'll even get you into the wrestlers and shows themselves more if you're a newer/casual fan so everyone's participation is welcomed and highly encouraged!

    Hirooki Goto b. Jay White - 7-1
    Katsuyori Shibata b. Marty Scurll - 5-3
    Taichi b. TAKA Michinoku - 6-3
    Hiroyoshi Tenzan b. Toru Yano - 6-2
    Minoru Suzuki b. SANADA - 7-0
    The Golden Lovers b. BUSHI - 6-1
    Kota Ibushi b. Hiromu Takahashi - 5-2
    Ryusuke Taguchi b. Tomoaki Honma - 6-1
    Hiroshi Tanahashi b. Zack Sabre Jr. - 8-0
    RPG3k b. Tomohiro Ishii - 5-4
    Jushin Liger b. Cody Rhodes - 8-2
    Yuji Nagata b. Will Ospreay - 5-4
    Bad Luck Fale b. EVIL - 5-3

    I wasn’t going to let Kojima go out that easily.
