With G1 Supercard firmly in our rear view mirror, we’re moving on to New Japan Pro Wrestling’s spring spectacular on our way to Wrestling Dontaku at the beginning of May.
This year, there are five major shows on our plate, with tonight’s Sengoku Lord in Nagoya and a supersized Road to Wrestling Dontaku show coming up this Friday before we get to Wrestling Hi no Kuni and then Wrestling Dontaku, which is doubled up into a two-night affair once again. All three 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 Aichi’s Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium, kicking off at a brisk 5AM Eastern / 2AM Pacific, and is headlined by Zack Sabre, Jr. challenging Kota Ibushi for his IWGP Intercontinental Championship.
Ren Narita & Shota Umino over Yota Tsuji & Yuya Uemura by pinfall with a bridging belly-to-belly suplex from Narita on Uemura.
Suzuki-gun (El Desperado, Minoru Suzuki, Taichi, TAKA Michinoku, & Yoshinobu Kanemaru) over Jushin Liger, Satoshi Kojima, Toa Henare, Tomoaki Honma, & Yuji Nagata by submission with Stretch Plum from Taichi on Henare.
Dragon Lee & Most Violent Players (Togi Makabe & Toru Yano) over Bullet Club (Taiji Ishimori, Tama Tonga, & Tanga Loa) by pinfall with a schoolboy from Yano on Loa.
Mikey Nicholls over Chase Owens by pinfall with the Mikey Bomb.
Hirooki Goto & Ryusuke Taguchi over Bullet Club (HIKULEO & “Switchblade” Jay White) by pinfall with a GTR from Goto on HIKULEO.
Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI, EVIL, SANADA, Shingo Takagi, & Tetsuya Naito) over Chaos (Kazuchika Okada, SHO, Tomohiro Ishii, YOH, & YOSHI-HASHI) by pinfall with Destino from Naito on YOSHI-HASHI.
Juice Robinson (c) over Bad Luck Fale by pinfall with Pulp Friction to retain the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship
Kota Ibushi (c) over Zack Sabre, Jr. by pinfall with Kamigoye to retain the IWGP Intercontinental Championship
Post-match, Tetsuya Naito issues Ibushi a challenge, so it looks like we’ve got one more round coming up!
Enjoy the show!
