We’re headed towards New Japan Pro Wrestling’s next huge show in the form of G1 Supercard, and that means only one thing— New Japan Cup!
A thirty-two-man single elimination tournament spread across twelve shows, the winner earns a shot at a singles heavyweight-eligible title of his choice. All twelve shows, naturally, will air live and in full on NJPW World, so why not watch along with the best pro wrestling community on the internet?
Today’s action takes place in Shizuoka’s Twin Messe Shizuoka, kicking off at a brisk 6AM Eastern / 3AM Pacific, and features two of our quarterfinal matches, the winners of which will face off in a semifinal match on March 23.
Tomohiro Ishii over YOSHI-HASHI by pinfall with the vertical drop brainbuster. (New Japan Cup 2019 Quarterfinal Match)
Kazuchika Okada over Will Ospreay by pinfall with the Rainmaker. (New Japan Cup 2019 Quarterfinal Match)
Enjoy the show!
