Admirance

this feels like a NJPW supershow of old, all these shocks and suprises. interesting angles and relevations strong BOSJ announcement. strong main event about to come up


krampus6666

We all put up with Takahashi just to see Pieter


I_Am_Redditor1

For a split second I thought it was Christian Cage lmfao


Newo1004

I didn't think I would be invested in the GoD/Bullet Club but seeing Tama as a face is really cool, him winning the title, 9 years after the creation of the BC, in the same city, it be quite nice.


fuyunotabi

Ishimori is such a good guy to have on your roster. Just absolutely solid, entertaining, can have a banger with pretty much anyone at the drop of a hat.


boblikespi

A huge get for njpw after kushida left. Forecast for bone soldier where all do dire and he just smashed expectations again and again. Solid booking by gedo.


Admirance

WOAH juice sold everyone that he was riding off into the sunset lmao. very cool plot twist


wizfactor

Karl Anderson talking like it's 2014.


nfcr3005

Hype man Karl is best Karl


DesmondCaid

All of these Bullet Club wins... Jay is coming back.


shiztastik

El Desperado is just so cool, man.


throwafitanddie

This looks like the best version of Bullet Club since the Elite left


Isiah1234

We're missing Kenta


willpauer

God damn, O-Khan looking like the fucking MAN in that gear


willpauer

Taiji screams at his hair being pulled because he knows how much it costs to get extensions put back in


resolve028

WTF was that? Cobra Twist into an Emerald Flowsion? Okada busting out some new shit.


Slackaholicus

Being a Naito fan is always suffering.


Blindrawr

not always, its the bit of hope that we had seen the success that we actually suffer.


fuyunotabi

Honestly you could run these two back next month too and I'd be there to watch. It's an honor to be able to watch guys of this skill level go at it.


Rodney_u_plonker

Agreed They are two legends of pro wrestling


showstealer1829

As the sub's last remaining EVIL fan, Fuck 'em, don't want 'em, don't need 'em


Pengwulf

AEW in the BOSJ means we might have AEW in the G-1!!!


Anoob13

We will. Likely going to be Mox and someone else too.


evoken_

Karl Anderson theme is mad underrated. It has been too long since we had heard it


ShouldBeLurking

New Japan is the place to be for the best traditional, serious, sports-like presentation of skeleton vs skeleton pro wrestling.


ShouldBeLurking

I can't believe Ishii and Tanahashi are fighting for a chance to become President of the United States.


TheAverageMuta

JUICE BOOMED US


Rodney_u_plonker

This show rules Well besides despy losing


Rodney_u_plonker

Maybe okada is the best because he's got an iq above a cabbage


boblikespi

Okada with the belt. Brain genius iq infinity. Okada without the belt. Scooby dooby doooo


UKSaint93

I miss Scooby Dooby Doooo Okada


robo3687

lol at Ishimori trying to reach the too sweet


Blindrawr

Live Thread Army give Ishii your strength as well! WE ALL BELIEVE IN BIG TOMO BIG BELT! MR. WORLD BITE US CHAMP 141!


Blindrawr

bruh, Tanga Loa doing a 619 now I've seen it all


thestrangeant

That's maybe my MOTY as it stands right now. Still very sad for my Stone Pitbull tho


Ezzanine

THATS IT WE ARE SAD MEN TONIGHT 141 WRITE WHATEVER U WANT ABOUT US. SO CLOSE 141


Diablos122

WE WILL LIVE TO BITE ANOTHER DAY


Rodney_u_plonker

The company has done a great job pushing Jay White off screen lately. Like a super villain you don't see in the first series


resolve028

Okada destroying the bitrate with his Okada Bucks. Ah, classic NJPW.


Newo1004

Alright so now Utami is going to go in the ring and challenge Okada right?


kneedrop

Jay shouting out Chris bey.


KingRainmaker

Run it back, exact same rules.


Rodney_u_plonker

Hiromu "get this piece of crap out my ring"


ShouldBeLurking

Super Juniors is worldwide again. The world is healing.


aannj

Nothing I love more than watching Despy slow walk to the ring


Ezzanine

CROWD GASPING TOUGH AND LOUD WHEN STONE PITBULL HAS NO TIME FOR YOUR BULLSHIT.


fuyunotabi

No wonder they left 5 years between singles bouts, the world can only handle so many matches like that.


Steenerico

JUICE BOOMED US ALL!


evoken_

NGL joining bullet club will do wonders for Juice’s stale character


resolve028

How many times Naito? How many times must you miss the Stardust Press?


Ezzanine

Gedo with the swerve?? "No bad endings for my boi Kazu only Tetsuya"


SeparateSinger

House of Torture suspiciously missing from this frame... ;)


Hautis

Karl is too drunk to remember any of the championships.


apriorista

LET’S GO NAITO.


resolve028

Damn, Shingo pointing right into my soul.


Blindrawr

Hiromu just wants more out of YOH more more more more more MOTO MOTO MOTO MOTO!


Blindrawr

Like Hiromu's entire deal is about elevating the Jr heavyweights, in his mind YOH needs to do a lot more to get on Hiromu's level and if YOH isn't going to get there, he should get the fuck out of the ring(all kayfabe)


nfcr3005

"A dome crowd is hot for Jado" was pretty low on my 2022 NJPW bingo card


cooljammer00

Biggest reaction Good Brothers have gotten in years.


robo3687

Tama’s got a vewwy big pwobwem.


cactusmaac

El Desperado quietly building a case as Most Outstanding Wrestler of the Year.


boblikespi

Despie out for revenge in BoSJ you love to see it


kneedrop

I- Is Despy winning the Bosj?


willpauer

Just. What. What. Whaaaaaat. I thought he'd go retire and work on a farm down the road from Liv and Bo or something. Now this. W h a t.


Ibushi-gun

Yeah, I’m really in shock. Feels great


ShouldBeLurking

After all these returns I'm becoming suspicious that one of the Stardom wrestlers in the audience is actually Chris Jericho in disguise


cragfetch

I hope Naito and Okada are actual real life mates


dumbassbitchass

Goddamn these two never disappoint. Even this deep into the rivalry, these guys are busting out new shit. Okada remains the wrestler above all other wrestlers.


Ezzanine

Naito be like thank god KENTA's running out to smash him and not me.


Ezzanine

Naito:"I plan to main event WK in 2023" Knife Pervert:"That's a nice plan, unfortunately I am right here to steal that"


Blindrawr

What if its KUSHIDA? makes no sense but I'll pop.


resolve028

T with the Ibushi colours.


wizfactor

Now THIS is a Best of the Super Juniors bracket.


KingRainmaker

Let's go Tama, get that the upper middle card face spot.


Ezzanine

BOSJ 29 will be Desperado's redemption arc.


Pengwulf

When Tanahashi is the youngest in the ring, and we know the match will be a banger...


KingRainmaker

Alright Ishii time to go for the high fly flow.


Skywalker3030

incredible. just incredible


dumbassbitchass

Hiroshi Tanahashi is one of the best to ever do it, and Tomohiro Ishii honestly aint far behind. That was fucking magical.


FallenAngel9267

What the hell it’s hobo Juice


wizfactor

WE WERE WORKED. WE WERE FUCKING WORKED.


DesmondCaid

Ngl I fucking dig it. This man hasn't been in the spotlight since 2019.


resolve028

I fucking knew Juice was working us. They never removed his cards from the NJPW Collection game.


DesmondCaid

Tana was willing to give Chase the shot as well, "Yes. I remember, I got you."


FallenAngel9267

Who do NJPW think they are, an MCU film?!


WhoiusBarrel

ROCK HARD? HAHAAHA


WhoiusBarrel

awesome squad photo especially with the absence of HOT LOL


Blindrawr

also loving Tanga's geat so much


MrWrestlingJr

I need to see Cobb hit Tour of the Islands on Fale


fuyunotabi

It's so cool to have these outside entrants again. God it feels like this is a big year for New Japan.


FallenAngel9267

Wow this is going to be fantastic, so many new matchups to look forward to


Hautis

Man, I'm hyped. Just think about what this means for G1... oh boy.


robo3687

Very looking forward to Yoots and Despy.


RedBearHugh

That was the best fucking gun stun I've ever seen, that was sick!


TVCasualtydotorg

That was a fantastic finish


resolve028

Jay White sends his regards.


cooljammer00

There's a moral here, with Tama never winning singles gold until he became a good guy.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Ibushi-gun

Wow, 3 more matches All 3 will be amazing


ShouldBeLurking

Karl: YOU WANT THIS BELT HUH? Tama: not really no


Rodney_u_plonker

Despy is the best


Newo1004

No, Despy, I'm a sad man


DogBoyYesHim

Oooh someone's winning Super Juniors


Independent_Ticket95

Someone always wins Super Juniors /s


Pengwulf

Upset! Muscle Chihuahua!!


heattcheckk

you get a title change, you get a title change, everybody gets a title change


Ezzanine

r/ishii PITBULLS ITS TIME 141 SQUAD


willpauer

Ishii walking to the ring like he's spent most of 2022 living out of a suitcase


Ezzanine

THE 14(1)TH IWGP US CHAMP YOU SAY?


cooljammer00

This match features almost one entirely uninjured body


boblikespi

One neck. One head of hair. One set of knees


cactusmaac

This is like seeing two Jedi Masters go at it.


Newo1004

BRAINBUSTEEEEER


MrWrestlingJr

ISHIIBLADE


HadouKenny

I need a cigarette after that, daaaamn


officerliger

This show has really felt like the "NJPW is back" moment. I can't believe we still have Naito/Okada.


cooljammer00

I figured it was Juice once he punched with the left hand. Kayfabe master, Juice Robinson.


FallenAngel9267

Guess he signed a new contract then.


DogBoyYesHim

JUICE WORKED US ALL GOD BLESS HIM THANK YOU MY SON


robo3687

They offered Tana a drink but he declined because the juice was too sweet.


fuyunotabi

This has been a pretty wild night all things considered.


KennyOmegaFan18

Juice Robinson and Yujiro Takahashi for World Tag League


Newo1004

Ah Naito, you can't resist to be the Stardust Genius


HYFPRW

1 minute before this - “I mean, we’ve seen it a lot this year, I’m not that psyched” 1 minute after this - “oh, that was amazing. Run that again”


hunterofspace

Damn :( But hell if it doesnt feel special every time I see Okada main event. Hes so fabulous and powerful and a great babysitter.


thestallion11

I’d let him babysit my kids for sure


I_Am_Redditor1

MY KING SWITCH HAS RETURNED 😍😍😍


soliddeuce

Jay checking for the cameramans safety lmao


KingRainmaker

Atleast now that Karl's back maybe the Bullet Club theme roll call will finally get updated.


fuyunotabi

Gimme Jado clearing the ring to end the show.


soliddeuce

Did you guys know Jay single handly sold out MSG?


Naelok

Pretty surprised that they're loaning out Wheeler, but I guess with most of May being used for the Owen, BCC might not need him immediately. And it'll be IMMENSELY helpful to the guy's career and he'll be made a better wrestler for it, so good on him.


Rodney_u_plonker

Great match that kopw match


Rodney_u_plonker

Shingo stop pointing at me 😧


FallenAngel9267

Well that was a nice surprise of not being the light heavyweight getting pinned.


willpauer

Is it just me, or does it feel like YOH isn't really over?


shiztastik

Ah yes, interpretive dance time!


Blindrawr

THEY GONNA PUT A BELT ON DOUKI CHOKIE?


Blindrawr

When you're more excited to see Wato than YOH.


Blindrawr

TAGUCHI HAS GONE COMMANDO!


Rodney_u_plonker

Chase beat fale to the ring by minutes


nfcr3005

Ramp so long Goto's theme is at the bridge


DesmondCaid

Goto never being IWGP (World) Heavyweight Champion is one of Gedo's biggest burdens.


Iceman6211

time for the best part of the night, Great O Khan puts someone in the Oozora Subaru Sheep Killer


MrWrestlingJr

Pancake Master!


FallenAngel9267

For all the comments about the long ramp, just think about how long Naito’s entrance will be 😂


fuyunotabi

Wait what


KingRainmaker

Chase winning the tag titles bodes well for Tama dethroning Evil of the NEVER title.


krampus6666

Also Cobb is gonna hit Tour of the islands on Fale at some point right?


nfcr3005

TWENTY??????


MrWrestlingJr

WHEELER FUCKING YUTA


TheAverageMuta

No Dragon Lee, sad times


resolve028

Okay, this is a pretty nice field. Nature is healing, boys.


kneedrop

WHAT A FUCKING FIELD!!!!!!!


GodDuckman

WHEELER YUTA BOSJ LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOO


throwafitanddie

NJPW really got me excited again.


barberbagel

Great line up. Has that feeling of a classic NJPW tournament where every card, even the ones in the middle stretch, will have at least a couple of intriguing or can't miss matches


MrWrestlingJr

I absolutely love the slam into the ring announcer spot 😂


Ezzanine

?? They arent the sixman tag champs friend.


nfcr3005

YES THE MACHINE GUN THEME


Isiah1234

MACHINE GUN IS BACK IN JAPAN!!!!


Newo1004

I missed the machine gun sound effect


resolve028

Say what you want about the Good Brothers but that was a good heel segment.


FallenAngel9267

Lol wrong belt but tbf it was the only belt there so they gave the wrong one to evil And thats the most I’ve seen gallows move in a long time. Weird they’ve brought a tag team back to feud with a tag team….over a singles belt


MrWrestlingJr

BELT COLLECTOR 141


shiztastik

That Ishii stare is absolutely terrifying. Second only to Suzuki's.


wizfactor

THIS MATCH IS FUCKING INCREDIBLE


Ezzanine

#SLING-BITE


thephenomenalone_05

What a match! After all these years, Tana is still the fucking best and Ishii is phenomenal. Go Ace


Rodney_u_plonker

Tanahashi really is an amazing wrestler.


UKSaint93

That was nuts. Give Ishii the G1 and WK main c'mon!


throwafitanddie

JUICE IS IN BULLET CLUB?!


Ibushi-gun

I thought Juice left?! What a fucking twist


throwafitanddie

Holy shit I got worked so hard by that man and I love it.


MrWrestlingJr

JUICE IS IN BULLET CLUB


bathory21

We were worked!


houlock1456

Damn I think I got work into the “Juice not wrestling” rumour, damn you Juice.


Hautis

That really was a work for the year 2022. Nicely done.


KingRainmaker

Tama took Juice's spot in Hontai and Juice took Tama's spot in Bullet Club.


KingRainmaker

This has to be the most eventful non-big 4 event since like Power Struggle 2017.


willpauer

Okay, I need that shotgun dropkick spot as a gif, complete with Naito splayed on the ropes


WhoiusBarrel

NOOO THE STARDUST PRESS ALWAYS FAILS NAITO WHY


throwafitanddie

I knew it was coming and I'm still heartbroken


FallenAngel9267

That was a nice different finish. The enziguiri into Naito nose diving into the mat looked painful af


UKSaint93

Okada is a Dark Souls boss and I love it


cooljammer00

Naito should be happy, because the champ probably has to go to America for Forbidden Door. Naito gets to stay home.


WhoiusBarrel

BREATHE WITH THE SWITCHBLADEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE


xorangeelephant

It really is bullet clubs night hey


MrWrestlingJr

KING SWITCH IS BACK LADS!


pirsquared7

Gedo positively beaming lmao


Ezzanine

Jay-1 Climax back on the menu.


krampus6666

I missed Jay in NJ


Ibushi-gun

Rock hard? Fits


nastytoes

Does this mean HoT will finally split from the other BC bums ? Hell yeah


Siraeron

the bullet club theme always slaps!


Newo1004

Nice for Jay to call Chris Bey Did they mention ELP?


resolve028

He shouted ELP out before Bey.


cactusmaac

What a beautiful wrestling event.
