NJPW World
New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) are back again and we’re headed on the road to Wrestle Kingdom 14 now that the G1 Climax 29 is in our rear view, folks.

Seeing as it’s September, we’re coming up on New Japan’s now-standard trifecta of Destruction shows, starting with Destruction in Beppu yesterday (Sept. 15), then Destruction in Kagoshima the day after, and finishing up with Destruction in Kobe today (Sept. 22). Like all of New Japan’s other major events, these shows will be broadcast worldwide on New Japan's streaming service, NJPW World.

We'll have the standard match recommendation post later for those of us who can’t be up in the wee hours watching wrestling, but if you can, why not watch along with the best pro wrestling community on the internet?

Today’s action takes place in Hyogo’s Kobe World Hall, kicking off at a brisk 3AM Eastern / 12AM Pacific, and features a main event of Tetsuya Naito defending his IWGP Intercontinental Championship against “Switchblade” Jay White.

Jay White v Naito is supposed to be the main event, but that semi-main event will be a slugfest as Goto and Shingo are just two stiff working brawlers. As well I am more interested in Goto v Shingo then I am Jay and Naito, which is nothing against them, but I like watching Goto and Shingo go at it.
