John Pollock & Wai Ting review both nights of NJPW Wrestle Grand Slam in MetLife Dome featuring the return of Kota Ibushi, major title bouts, STARDOM matches, and the announcements of a 3-night Wrestle Kingdom and this year’s G1 Climax 31 participants.
They discuss New Japan’s ongoing struggles with pandemic-crowds, its fractured roster, and over-reliance on 30min matches to fill out its events.
Also: Hiromu Takahashi vs. Robbie Eagles for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title, Sanada/Naito vs. Dangerous Tekkers vs. Goto/Yoshi-Hashi for the IWGP Tag Titles, Jeff Cobb vs. Kazuchika Okada, and a Toru Yano vs. Chase Owens KOPW No DQ I Quit match that lasted an inexplicable 28 minutes.
Wai discusses last night’s GCW The Art of War Games featuring Jon Moxley’s surprise victory over Matt Cardona for the GCW Championship.
