Juice has turned down a WWE return and has signed a new three year deal with New Japan over the last couple of days or so. 

Really? Meltzer mentioned that although there was interest from WWE, they didn't make an offer or anything.

... And whether this will be a Rev Pro show feat Njpw like last time... 

Doesn’t seem that way given it’s being solely branded as a NJPW show. And it’s hardly as though that was the case last time. We’ll probably get a Japan heavy card, with some RevPro regulars filling out the opening tag matches similarly to the first couple of USA shows.

The latest SCG Radio is up, just posting it here as the main topic is a break down Wrestle Kingdom 13, talking all the matches, the winners and losers, the greatness of Hiroshi Tanahashi, Switchblade as top heel, issues with the show, the outlook on the future and the big stories coming from the landmark event. From there, we discuss the apparent departure of Kenny Omega and the Elite, the impact it has, and the possibilities behind All Elite Wrestling. A look at the rally, the roster and whispers around the television deal are gone into, as the insanity of 2019 begins in grand fashion. A fun show, check it out and let us know what you think!

So NJPW have announced the full cards for the New Beginning in USA shows and every match is a ROH match under the NJPW banner - https://www.njpw1972.com/42933

As you can imagine Twitter is pissed, and while they haven’t necessarily done anything wrong by not bringing any of the major stars over (no one specific was advertised), you do wonder how much, if at all, this will hurt New Japan’s growth in America.

Was it due to the government shut down which meant none of the Japanese talent were able to get Visas to work the shows? 

The Great O Kharn(Young Lion Tomoyuki Oka) is there but he’s been with Rev Pro for the last 6 months so he’ll be fine.

The simplest solution is often the right one I guess. Nagata, Goto, Ishii, Liger and Roppongi 3K aren’t on the Sapporo New Beginning shows so maybe they were the ones coming over.

Is it possible this could still be an issue come MSG ?

Depends if the president wants to stop acting like a big baby or not.

As @JNLister pointed out on Twitter, there might be some who could help them out despite the shutdown. I think they were in the Small Business Administration

I've not watched anything since Wrestle Kingdom.

Have I missed anything worth catching up on?

No, The New Beginning shows start today though.

Edit: The Never 6 Man titles changed hands but those belts have always been missable.

KUSHIDA had he last match against Tanahashi at Road To New Beginning - Night 3, but other than that you’ve not missed a whole lot
