NJPW is back with another stadium show that in the time of COVID can't possibly sell out, Wrestle Grand Slam!
This weekend it's back-to-back nights at the MetLife Dome in Tokozawa, and we've got a slew of title matches on tap. Night 1 especially looks very promising, with the long-awaited return of Kota Ibushi in the main event, plus a big first-time collision of former RPG3K members Sho and Yoh. Night 2 on the other hand has Hiromu Takahashi returning to try and reclaim the belt he never lost. Both nights will feature a Stardom exhibition match on the pre-show, which should be fun. I've never actually seen a Stardom match but I've been meaning to. Regardless both shows feature some potential classics. Let's take a look.....
Flying Tiger vs. Hiromu Takahashi & Bushi
The warmup tag match will see Takahashi getting his feet wet before his big title match on Night 2. I don't expect this to go very long and I think Tiger Mask IV is there to eat the pin.
Sho vs. Yoh
This should be pretty great. Sho in particular is awesome and I'm excited to see what he can do as a new heel. It's almost a Shawn vs. Marty dynamic. I see some singles championships in Sho's future and maybe Yoh's as well.
Pick: Sho needs to win the first contest
