    Destruction in Tokyo - 17th September
    Wrestle Kingdom 11 - January 4th, 2017.

    *Couple of notes before we start, first, fuck the NEVER Openweight 6 Man belt, it’s a dumb idea and it shouldn’t exist, imo. Second, changed some results around on the G1 Finals to better fit the direction I wanna take with NJPW.

  3. Normally I'm not the one to really check out BTB's, but I like this ''reality'' concept and it looks very good imo so I'm gonna try to follow it, brother. Good shit.

  4. Hey, thanks man. The only thing I'm not gonna be doing are the "Road to" shows leading into an event because they are basically house shows so not much happens and it'd all be too much for me to write up.

  6. 19/9/16 - Pre-Destruction in Tokyo Press Conference.
    Just a few days away from NJPWs Destruction in Tokyo, NJPW held a press conference for the media where a select few of NJPW’s stars came out and answered a few questions regarding the upcoming event:

    Katsuyori Shibata

    Shibata, we will start with you. Last month you defeated your former friend Hirooki Goto in the finals of the G1 Climax. What were your thoughts on that?
    Going into that match, I thought of Wrestle Kingdom 8. Goto beat me there. I thought of that match because since that match Goto and myself have both changed. Myself? I have changed for the better. I’m a two time NEVER Openweight Champion and a G1 Winner. Him? Not so much. The man that joined CHAOS, the man I faced in the G1 Finals is not the man I used to call a friend.

    How do you feel about winning the G1?
    I feel great. My goal since I came back to wrestling was simple. To be the very best. Winning the G1 has brought me one step closer to accomplishing that goal.

    What are your thoughts on your opponent at Destruction in Tokyo, Tetsuya Naito?
    Naito, Los Ingobernables, they’re just another fad. Everyone is in love with them now but in a few months? Just like CHAOS. Just like The Bullet Club. People will stop caring. Naito wants to think he is the MVP of this years G1, huh? He wants to think he deserves the trophy? He thinks he should be in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom because he believes it was “stolen” from him when he won the G1 two years ago, right? Well, guess what, Naito? The main event is MINE now. If he is MVP, how come he wasn’t in the finals? If he deserves the trophy, why did he have to steal it?


    Hirooki Goto & Kazuchika Okada
    Goto, we’ll start with you. Did you hear what Shibata had to say?
    HG: No.

    Well, Shibata, said that yo-
    HG: I don’t care. Ask me something different.

    Well, uh, okay. What do the both of you think about your opponents, Los Ingobernables de Japon’s EVIL & SANADA?
    HG: EVIL? SANADA? They are nothing.
    KO: These questions...they are a waste of my time. Gedo! You answer.
    GEDO: What does The Rainmaker think?! Ahahaha! The Rainmaker doesn’t CARE about EVIL or SANADA or Los Ingobernables. You wanna know why The Rainmaker doesn’t care? Because he is The King! He makes the money rain down on New Japan and we should all thank him for it!
