I mean more in he's still popular/good enough to wait a little longer. I honestly don't think that Naito's momentum could take another setback.

Now watch Okada go over on both shows.

I just wonder who’s losing two Tokyo Dome matches in a row. Jay White? 

I guess Bullet Club is pretty much fully dead if this happens.

WK Day 1 is 25 bucks on FiteTV. Are there cheaper options?

New Japan World. It’s like £5 or £6. Works great on a console browser. Can cancel then if you don’t want anymore new japan. Although I’d recommend watching New Year dash.

You can buy a NJWorld subscription and a Chromecast to play it on the telly for less than the amount of money that Fite are charging for both shows.

I'll go into more detail later with the rest of the predictions, but I think Okada and Naito headlines night two (with Naito finally going over, giving us an LIJ role-call to go off air with them having all the belts) and Ibushi is the guy that takes defeats on both nights. It'll likely change as we draw closer, but at the moment I'm around 70/30 in who's going over with Naito/White. On the other hand, I think Okada going over Ibushi on Night One is all but a given.

I honestly think it'd be interesting to have Okada take a heavy defeat, actually. I'd have him lose to Ibushi and White, with him becoming utterly focused on winning both belts in 2020 as a result. Gives a lot of meaning to rematches with all 3, in a way none of the other results do.

I don't think there's a chance Okada takes two consecutive defeats, let alone to White, who pinned him last year at Wrestle Kingdom to set up Okada's mini redemption arc of winning the NJC and subsequently gaining the belt back at MSG. Plus, we have no idea how long they plan on keeping the belts together for.

Naito over White, Okada over Ibushi, White over Ibushi and Naito over Okada. Naito/White at New Beginning, Ibushi wins the belt at Dominion, Okada wins the G1. That's what I'm going with at the moment.

I had a small dream the other night which involved Taichi inserting himself into the Main Event on Night 2 and winning both belts in a triple threat, So I'm going with that.

According to Meltzer, Anthem said NJPW could only have TV on AXS if they worked with Impact. NJPW said no. Which I'm finding quite funny.

In the meantime, this appears to have opened the door to some NJPW/AEW conversations, which is really quite exciting (as long as AEW learn to handle explaining who people are when they turn up on TV and don't just expect everyone to recognise NJPW wrestlers). Getting Omega occasionally back in NJPW would be good, as a fan. Be a nice surprise for New Year's Dash too.

If that's true then things must have been bad between New Japan and Impact if New Japan were willing to lose their TV deal, rather than work with them.

They turned Okada into this

I would have told them to stick it too.

There's holding a grudge and there's holding a grudge with a company which has changed all its personnel and even its name in the meantime.
