Tanahashi's hair is probably going to be the best draw they've got going in. And that's a compliment to the hair, not a knock on New Japan.

I think it's going to be a hard sell for the MSG show on the same weekend as SummerSlam. Technically you could hop on an Amtrak or drive up 95 and get to Boston and see both shows but that also means you skip Takeover. The MSG show benefited from everyone being in NYC. I don't think it will sell out might be close though.

If they could get AEW on board, I could see it doing better even with just getting Jericho and Moxley. They have basically 6 months to work something out which is actually a long time in the current wrestling climate.

According to this week's Observer Newsletter, NJPW is planning for this year's MSG event to be Wrestle Kingdom worthy in terms of card status. Baring any sudden changes, neither Jericho nor Moxley would be available for the show due to both guys deals with NJPW only allows them to work shows in Japan.

Also reported that NJPW wanted to make this announcement during Wrestle Kingdom 14 week but couldn't due to WWE's attempts at blocking them from MSG.

It also comes two weeks before All Out 2 in Chicago.

The idea is that New Japan will present a card equivalent to a WrestleKingdom. That would seem to mean an IWGP title match involving Tetsuya Naito, Kazuchika Okada, Kota Ibushi, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Jay White or Will Ospreay would be put on top. Because G-1 is being moved to the fall due to the Olympics, it would be the last major event before G-1, and follow Dominion, which takes place 6/16 in Osaka.

As things stand right now, neither Jon Moxley or Chris Jericho would be allowed to appear on the show as their AEW deal only allows for them to work for New Japan in Japan.

It’s notable that after all the pressure coming from the WWE side, that in the end, Madison Square Garden gave them this date. New Japan had planned on announcing this show on 1/5 at the Tokyo Dome, but it wasn’t finalized until recently for the obvious issues.

Not surprising at all. If you're going to go into MSG, you really need a card that is going to be worthy of it. This lends itself to being a huge show, and if it's half-way successful, I wouldn't be surprised to see them make it an annual thing and have their local Wrestle Kingdom and international Wrestle Dynasty show as two big marquee events throughout the year.

I've got a feeling Okada will walk out the IWGP Champion. Can see the top two matches being Naito vs. Okada and White vs. Tanahashi.

Would be tough to make it an annual show without NJPW making major changes to their schedule setup.

Main reason they could do it this year was due to the Olympics being in Tokyo and the G1 Climax tournament being pushed back till the Fall. That left August open for a major event in the US to be possible and also not have it conflict with other shows or be put together at the last minute.

Plus even with MSG becoming friendly towards non-WWE promotions, its still a very expensive place to run events which is why even WWE bolted when they had the chance after the Barclays Center opened for big events in NY.

You don't have to do it in August or at MSG every year, lol. Just one big US show to try and fertilize that ground.

They would still need to do some big tweaks to their schedule to fit a major US show that doesn't get thrown together at the last minute and also gets treated the same as a major Japan event if the idea is to hold it annually.

Right now their schedule is pretty much ideal for how the company runs things which is why almost all the US shows have been just crammed in and given low priority for focus.

Ideally if they were to run a major US show every year, September likely makes the most sense but the window to do it is pretty small. Would be sandwiched between wrestlers just coming out of their post-G1 rest break and the important post-G1 shows that tie up loose ends.

Problem is you'd have to cram it within a 1-2 week window. Last year's gap from the G1 rest break ending to the Destruction tour was like a week.

NJPW pretty much would have to drop one of their usual major events or tournaments to make a major US event happen as an annual thing without running into any real issues.

Can't they start G1 a little earlier and move the rest break one week? Does that interfere with any major Japanese holidays or anything like that?

Might run into some potential schedule issues if they did since the only other way is to shrink down the field back to 18 but doubt they'd want to do that after all these years of doing a 20 man tournament.

Easiest solution to their whole US problem is to just announce major matches earlier like US promotions do but then you run into another problem of spoiling important matches for big Japan events beforehand.

New Japan Cup brackets are going to be revealed tomorrow according to Chris Charlton and it's going to be another big one with 32 entrants.

R.I.P Everyone in Survivor.

I'm feeling a SANADA win, it fits the pattern, would work with the current champion and probably improve his dismal record over Okada. Maybe SANADA takes the IC off Naito. Lots of people are calling for Opsreay but I think it's too soon for that. Of course, it's Gedo so you never know.
