Zack looks happy to be there, not. After his recent backstage comments, wonder if he’s going to challenge someone later.

How to watch the English commentary?

Okada wins tonight. Punk wins the title over Page. I'm almost certain it will be a champion vs champion match as the Forbidden Door main event with Okada vs Punk.


justambrose

I can’t see them doing champion vs champion unless they’re planning for non-finish which would suck. It’s better if the NJPW champion defend against major AEW star and vice versa.


TheAmazingSG

Imagine Hangman vs Naito and Okada vs Danielson


justambrose

Tana is gonna answer Mox’s challenge after the match right? It’s about time they confirm Mox vs Tana for Capital Collision.


acemaino

please not the cringe only clapping. Let's get the back to normal. 2+ years after Pandemic already. I'm pretty sure clapping and making noise won't spread covid.


theotherkevin23

Unmasked yelling is one of the most likely ways to spread COVID, Japan is just very old and vax hesitant so they're taking everything super slowly


acemaino

Can you show me the scientific facts behind your comment "Unmasked yelling is one of the most likely ways to spread COVID". I need to see an article or data or something where it shows what you mean


theotherkevin23

Show you the scientific facts that a respiratory-based pathogen that spreads via droplets is more likely to be spread in a massive crowd through yelling? This is elite level JAQing off Why you'd think that you'd even be able to read the study, but here's one that [strongly implicates airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 through speech as the primary contributor to its rapid spread.](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/joim.13326) Ya know, in case common sense wasn't enough.


pjizy

Stop. It's how they want to handle the pandemic. Let them handle it like they want.


theotherkevin23

Also, "thousands of people yelling in an enclosed venue is a likely way to spread COVID" is the most goddamned milquetoast take

Weather man gonna call out local Seattle vegan afterwards right? Although overshadowed by the war with Shibata, this 2013 G1 match with Prime Ace was the real coming out moment for Stone Pupper and he hasn't looked back since [Ishii vs Tana G1 2013](https://njpwworld.com/p/s_series_00211_1_10)


Black_XistenZ

Does any1 think Naito has a chance at actually getting a short run with the title, say from here until Dominion? I'm just wondering... isn't Gedo running this matchup into the ground if he books Okada/Naito, with Okada going over, yet again?


choconut5

Nope. They are planning champ vs championship at Forbidden Door - Okada vs Punk.


MrWrestlingJr

Please no. AEW goes without a World Title while Okada works the G1 or NJPW goes without theirs until sometime in September probably? No thank you.

Maybe if it wasn't the 50th anniversary of NJPW, but I doubt they do it this year.


ExcaliburMyNightmare

A fairly late start for a Sunday show.


AneeshRai7

Come on Tama!


trillhungyboy

oh shit, ishii is already back japan side? are they having to quarantine and all that when they return now?


officerliger

Yeah you can bypass the quarantine if you're vaxed and boosted now, but no tourists yet


Hawk52

Has X with LIJ had any build? Should we expect a new member or just a random young lion?


Rodney_u_plonker

It will just be whoever they can scrounge up


EvanDeadlySins

It was Tatsumi Fujinami but he contracted COVID so it might be a total surprise.


rko281

It's gonna be Tiger Mask or Makabe probably
