NJPW Kizuna Road review (6.17.18)

NJPW Kizuna Road   June 17 2018   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall. There are talent announcements for G1 on this show so it’s garnered my interest amidst a sea of World Cup love.

KUSHIDA vs. Dragon Lee for the first time ever is a very… Continue Reading

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors N13 review (6.3.18)

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors N13   June 3 2018   I’m afraid I’m not going to give Jack a chance to catch up because I want to go into the final day knowing what’s happening. With that in mind here are the Blocks:   Block A Taiji Ishimori 4-2 [8] Will Ospreay 4-2… Continue Reading

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors Day 8 (27.05.18)

We’re out of sync now because Arn is focused and organised and I’m not. But, just so we can say we did indeed get every match of this tournament reviewed on Rear View, and also because I thought this was a terrific night of action, here’s the lowdown on Best of the Super Juniors Day… Continue Reading

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors N9 review (5.29.18)

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors N9   May 29 2018   We’re in Tochigi City at the Athletic Park Gymnasium. On paper this was one of the weakest BOSJ cards with Ospreay headlining against Kanemaru, arguably the least interesting person in his Block. Also on tap; Flip vs. YOH, ACH vs. BUSHI and Ishimori… Continue Reading
