NJPW NEWS

Following the conclusion of “Sakura Genesis”, New Japan will now be heading into their next set of big shows which takes place throughout this month and the start of May. Which is better known as the “Golden Week” in Japan.

The main event for “Wrestling Dontaku 2017” will feature Kazuchika Okada defending the IWGP Heavyweight belt against Bad Luck Fale on May 3 in Fukuoka. Following his defense against Shibata on April 9, Okada was met with a forceful challenge by the big man Fale. With Fale’s performance in this years New Japan Cup there is no denying he is worthy of a title challenge. A special singles match will be held between Tomohiro Ishii and Kenny Omega in the semi-final of the show in what looks to lead to who could be the next challenger for the winner of the main event. The IWGP Tag and NEVER 6 Man Tag belts will also be in contention on the show.

Then on April 29 in Oita, “Wrestling Toyo no Kuni” will be held and will see Tetsuya Naito defending the IWGP IC belt against Juice Robinson. Robinson has been climbing the ranks as a contender for the singles belts after showing several strong performances in the ring, specifically since this years Wrestling Kingdom. He comes into this match with a direct win over the champion following a win over Naito in a tag match on April 9. Hiroshi Tanahashi and EVIL will be facing off in the semi-final match of the night as the next contender for the IC belt could come from it. Then the IWGP Junior belt will be in defense as Hiromu Takahashi takes on “King” Ricochet.

A lead-in tour will be taking place heading into the shows which will be held from April 22 through April 30, a special show “NEW JAPAN ROAD” will also be held on May 5. Though the show on April 27 will be a main focal point as two title matches will be taking.
