That is not the pairing of Sierra. Uniform. Juliet. India. Mike. Alpha. Golf. Uniform. November: Sujimagun I was expecting to see leading in the rankings. But so far...Fan-freaking-tastic.

Rating: A
(5) 6 Man Tag Match: Toru Yano, Tetsuya Naito & Katsuyori Shibata vs. Bullet Club - Karl Anderson, Chris Hero & DOC Gallows
Shibata (7:33) via PK on Hero
Yano and Naito carried this match for the first 6 and a half minutes, but it was the last minute that stood out, when Shibata tagged in, won a forearm/elbow exchange with Hero, then ran the ropes and hit a Sling Blade, before sitting Hero up for the PK and pin
Rating: A

If it wasn't clear what Shibata's intentions were, his brief air guitar session in which he trashed his imaginary axe as he stomped out of the arena was definitely a shot at one particular man
Rating: A

(6) A Block: Bullet Club - Prince Devitt & Bad Luck Fale vs. Tempest - Naomichi Marufuji & Yujiro Takahashi
Marufuji (9:53) via Shiranui on Devitt

Hayashi (11:31) via Power Plant on Marufuji
Rating: A*
(6) A Block: Bullet Club - Prince Devitt & Bad Luck Fale vs. Bullet Club - Karl Anderson & Chris Hero
Devitt (1:32) via scissors over paper on Anderson
After feigning two Fingerpokes of Doom, Bullet Club decides this match with a game of jan-ken-pon, which Devitt wins on the 4th round, after which Anderson lays down for him
Rating: A

Anderson then instantly jumps up and Bullet Club hugs it out, spitefully enjoying their victory over decency
Rating: B+

As an aside, that leaves us with both Bullet Club teams: Devitt & Fale and Anderson & Hero, & WWE's the Fatus with 6 points, chasing Hayashi & Kojima who's in the house with 8 points

(7) B Block: Sujimagun - Minoru Suzuki & Taiyo Kea vs. Yuji Nagata & Captain New Japan

Rating: A
(3) B Block: Gorilla Warfare - Hirooki Goto & Togi Makabe vs. Toru Yano & Tetsuya Naito
Makabe (8:40) via King Kong Knee Drop on Naito
Naito and Yano have difficulties working together as Naito tries to rein in Yano's antics and it's a Yano distraction that blows up in Naito's face and keeps Gorilla Warfare in the tournament
Rating: A*
(4) B Block: Yuji Nagata & Captain New Japan vs. Tempest - Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega
Omega (12:51) via PK Kokoro (Assisted Tombstone Piledriver) on Nagata

Rating: A
(6) A Block: Tempest - Naomichi Marufuji & Yujiro Takahashi vs. Bullet Club - Karl Anderson & Chris Hero
Takahashi (11:52) via rollup with tights held on Anderson
The wrestling Gods don't like ugly, and Anderson pays the price for Bullet Club's sins

Only this time we get Allysin Kay, April Lee and the Canadian NINJAS walking by as they hang out and when they hear Mr. R-Rating so desperate that they make him a deal: If he's at Wrestle Kingdom and wins his match, one of them will give him a kiss.

Milano Collection AT, Jado & Chono break down the 1st Half of the show: They focus explicitly on the semi-final matches, wondering if we should or should not be shocked that the Golden Lovers have put together this run to the finals and where that leaves Sujimagun's quest to rid NJPW of Bullet Club, and then the second semi-final where Archer and Tenzan's lack of history and chemisty finally caught up with them, and Bullet Club took advantage to advance to the final match
Rating: B (for SF 1) Rating: B+ (for SF 2)
MC AT, Jado & Chono break down the 2nd Half of the show: They focus on the final two matches particularly, with Okada and Bernard butting heads before going into Wrestle Kingdom, and then the World Tag League Finals where they wonder if the Golden Lovers can overcome this very focused Bad Luck Fale and stop Prince Devitt from taking the Tag Titles
Rating: B (for Tempest/WWE) Rating: B (for WTL Final)


(5) 8 Man Tag Match: Gorilla Warfare - Togi Makabe, Hirooki Goto, Ryusuke Taguchi & Tomoaki Honma vs. Shinsuke Nakamura, Tomohiro Ishii & Forever Hooligans - Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov

Bernard (17:31) via Bernard Driver on Takahashi (via April interference)
Tempest was in control of the match and Takahashi had Bernard reeling, but then April Lee jumped up on the apron and reminded Yujiro to focus on what's important: Wrestle Kingdom. This obviously had the opposite effect and when Yujiro went towards her looking to get some "inspiration" April hung him up on the top rope and he rebounded into the loving grasp of Giant Bernard

(8) World Tag League Final Match: Bullet Club - Prince Devitt & Bad Luck Fale vs. Tempetst - Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega

Rating: A

After the match, Kojima and Hayashi come out and as the only team in the finals Bullet Club didn't beat, challenge Fale & Devitt for the Tag Titles at the Tokyo Dome. Devitt has no problem accepting
Rating: B-

Final Rating: A


Information about the full card for Wrestle Kingdom 10 in Tokyo Dome is being released. In major news, Wrestle Kingdom 10 will be headlined by a triple main event involving the three men who held the IWGP Heavyweight title this year, the G1 Climax winner, and the return of the Man of Talent, Hiroshi Tanahashi!

Triple Main Event I will be a battle between Hirooki Goto and Hiroyoshi Tenzan. At Invasion Attack, Goto finally achieved his goal and became IWGP Heavyweight Champion, only to lose the belt at Dontaku, to Tenzan. You could then attribute Goto's loss in the World Tag League to his loss on Day 1 against Tenzan and Archer. And although he has a victory over Tenzan in the G1 Climax 25, that's not enough to satisfy Goto. He needs a marquee victory over Tenzan to regain his standing, and Tenzan wants to prove that his run over the last year isn't over and that he can continue to perform at this high level and become Heavyweight Champion again. They'll get the chance to settle their score at Wrestle Kingdom.

Triple Main Event II is the IWGP Intercontinental Title match, which we now know will also be Hiroshi Tanahashi's Return Match. Katsuyori Shibata nominated the man who is his generational rival, feeling that if it wasn't for Tanahashi hogging the spotlight for himself there would be guys from their generation that made it to the top of New Japan. Instead, they all disappeared, except for someone like Goto who could never break through on his own, or someone like Yamamoto who had to leave New Japan to find any measure of real success. But when Shibata crushes the last vestige of Tanahashi, his shadow won't cast a pall over anyone else and everyone will be free to rise.

To Tanahashi's credit, he takes all of this in stride. He's always been the standard bearer and the one that everyone measures themselves against, and it's been his duty to knock back all the challengers that have not been worthy. He cannot control another man's heart or destiny, only listen to his own. And his heart has been pure and his destiny was to be the Ace. Now, though, he has a new calling and it doesn't involve being the Ace and it doesn't involve carrying New Japan. This time, right now, is about Tanahashi righting the wrongs because that is what Tanahashi has always done. But he's not righting the wrongs of New Japan, he's only righting the wrongs of Tanahashi. And there is one wrong that he knows without a shadow of a doubt he wants to right: January 4th, 2006, when he lost to Katsuyori Shibata. That was a different Hiroshi Tanahashi and on January 4th 2016, he proves it.

Triple Main Event III is the IWGP Heavyweight Title Match with the G1 Climax 25 winner, Kazuchika Okada challenging the reigning champion Giant Bernard. It's been obvious since the day in March 2014 when Giant Bernard returned to New Japan soil that he is a changed man, and he is on a mission to dominate and destroy New Japan like nobody before him. And between he and his group, the Worldwide Wrestling Elite, they have accomplished things no foreigners have ever accomplished. New Japan has lost battles to foreigners before but they've never been dominated like this and Bernard is now one step closer to exerting his will on New Japan for a second full year, and he seems poised to do so. And if he can't be stopped, there may be no returning all that we hold dear.

That, however, may very well be okay with his challenger, because The Rainmaker's assent to the top of New Japan has been about anything but holding the old things dear: He ended Tanahashi's run as the Ace; Nakamura folded up CHAOS and handed control of NJPW's longest standing stable to Okada, he's had 3 IWGP Heavyweight title reigns, a New Japan Cup win, and 2 G1 Climax wins before the age of 29. Kazuchika Okada isn't about holding the old things dear, he's about removing them and creating the new things we will hold dear. He's watched the WWE and other groups like them coming together and staking claim to space and he's been biding his time, slowly putting all of his pieces in place and waiting for the moment, and once he had his opportunity, it was time for His Tempest to rise and flood the landscape. This match is truly his time. He doesn't need platitudes or guarantees, he just needs to go into that ring, stand across the man that has what is his, and take it from him. Because it is his time, this is his Golden Age, and because he is The Man Who Makes Money Rain.

ALL da shenanigans. 123YAY~!

(1) IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Title Match: (42nd Champions) The Bravados - Lance & Harlem vs. (Challengers) Sujimagun - Seiya Sanada (W-1) & YAMATO (DG)
Second Defense
Not going on much here. Just flipping a coin about which set of tag titles Sujimagun wins, and this one loses.

(2) IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title Match: (69th Champion) Chris Hero vs. (Challenger) El Generico vs. (Challenger) Cody Runnels vs. (Challenger) KUSHIDA
Fourth Defense
This is my official choose-with-the-heart match.

(3) Special Singles Match: Taiyo Kea vs. Ryusuke Taguchi
Because logic.

(4) IWGP Tag Team Title Match: (68th Champions) Prince Devitt & Bad Luck Fale vs. (Challengers) Sujimagun - Satoshi Kojima & Kaz Hayashi
First Defense
Always a gamble to call someone losing a title on their first defence, but the trajectory of Sujimagun favours them here.

(5) Special Singles Match: Lance Archer vs. Togi Makabe
Welcome back, Boso King Kong.

(6) Special Singles Match: Karl Anderson vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Nakamura will lose, and the match will be A*. YEAOH~!

(7) 8 Man Tag Match: Tempest - Yujiro Takahashi, Naomichi Marufuji (NOAH), Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi vs. WWE - Drew Galloway, Naofumi Yamamoto & The Fatus - Jimmy & Jey
Blow up WWE. Blow them right up. It's time.

(8) Special Singles Match: Yuji Nagata vs. Minoru Suzuki
The blasphemy of all blasphemies. The Tokyo Dome dominance of Blue Justice will see the sun set upon it. Kaze Ni Nare.

(9) Triple Main Event I: Special Singles Match: Hirooki Goto vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan
Goto could use this a lot more, to show that his title win wasn't a fluke (even though it pretty much was). Tenzan doesn't need to sustain his Revival. He can start a new one, the next time you decide that he needs to be Chono.

(10) Triple Main Event II: Hiroshi Tanahashi Return Match/IWGP Intercontinental Title Match: (10th Champion) Katsuyori Shibata vs. (Challenger) Hiroshi Tanahashi
Third Defense
Toughest call on the card, both guys have a storyline reason to go over. When in doubt, I don't bet against the Man of Talent.

(11) Triple Main Event III: IWGP Heavyweight Title Match: (65th Champion) Giant Bernard vs. (Challenger/G1 Climax 25 Winner) Kazuchika Okada
Third Defense
Blow up WWE. Blow them right up. It's time.
This — THIS — is the moment where the Rainmaker becomes the Ace of New Japan. It's been an incredible ride, and we're all ready.

(0) Joshi Showcase Allysin Kay vs. April Lee vs. Tomoka Nakagawa

Nakagawa connects with the water spit on AK, but before she can roll the Classy One up, April shoves her through the ropes and channels her inner Keiji Mutoh for the win

Naito is incensed and hits Yano with his own chair then lands the Stardust Press before, as both teams brawl well after the bell
Rating: A

The main show begins with a promo package, narrarted by Jado, running down the card match by match. After the Anderson/Nakamura graphic, the promo package is cut into by a video made by the entire WWE saying the more you fight it the harder it will be on you when they destroy your heroes again. When they defeat Tempest and Okada there will be no denying what Bernard has said all along is true. The WWE is the premier unit in wrestling and New Japan, and everything it ever has been or ever will be, belongs to them. We are then recut back into the rest of New Japan's rundown of the card
Rating: C+

(1) IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Title Match: (42nd Champions) The Bravados - Lance & Harlem vs. (Challengers) Sujimagun - Seiya Sanada (W-1) & YAMATO (DG)

YAMATO (9:22) via Crossbone Vanguard on Lance
The champions fall on their second defense as Sujimagun is finally golden as the 43rd Generation Champions

(4) IWGP Tag Team Title Match: (68th Champions) Prince Devitt & Bad Luck Fale vs. (Challengers) Sujimagun - Satoshi Kojima & Kaz Hayashi
First Defense
Devitt (14:11) via Bloody Sunday on Hayashi (interference by YAMATO, Kea, Sanada, Gallows & Hero)
This match was a certifiable riot as Sujimagun (minus Suzuki) and Bullet Club (minus Anderson) come out together in full force. Eventually this powder keg was going to explode and it did as the juniors tried to take down Fale and Gallows came to his defense. Then the Bravado Brothers come out and attack Kojima and as Tiger Hattori valiantly fails to keep control, Chris Hero brains Hayashi with a Deathblow and Devitt picks the scraps
Rating: A*
(5) Special Singles Match: Lance Archer vs. Togi Makabe
Makabe (11:58) via King Kong Knee Drop

(7) 8 Man Tag Match: Tempest - Yujiro Takahashi, Naomichi Marufuji (NOAH), Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi vs. WWE - Drew Galloway, Naofumi Yamamoto & The Fatus - Jimmy & Jey
Ibushi (10:32) via Phoenix Splash on Jey
April Lee tried to run the same game on Yujiro as she did at the WTL Finals, but this time Ibushi makes the blind tag before he was charmed. Even though the Fatus drill Takahashi with the top rope splash, Red Shoes Unno expertly refuses to make a pin, and rather than make a move, Jey starts to argue until Takahashi grabs a bearhug on him, which gives Ibushi all the time he needs to load up the Phoenix Splash onto Jey, onto Takahashi to get the pin
Rating: A

After the match, April throws a tantrum with her charges until Takahashi comes to and he declares it's Sexy Time for Mr. R Rated. April goes white and tries to run but she gets cornered by Tempest in the corner. She slips out and goes for the aisle and there's Allysin Kay and Tomoka Nakagawa to cut her off and drag her back to the ring. They toss her in, Takahashi gets his hands on her and plants the scuzziest kiss on her, full of tongue all over her face. As he, Tempest and the other joshis celebrate, April dies in a heap and screams bloody murder until Drew throws her over his shoulder and carries her away
Rating: B-

Coming off of that, we get a promo package highlighting Nagata and Suzuki's storied history and their four previous Wrestle Kingdom matches: Suzuki forcing a referee stoppage at the inaugural Wrestle Kingdom, and Nagata's 3 pinfall victories at Wrestle Kingdoms 5, 7, and 8, ending with Suzuki swearing never again
Rating: B

(8) Special Singles Match: Yuji Nagata vs. Minoru Suzuki
Suzuki (12:31) via Gotch-Style Piledriver
Never again, indeed. KAZE NI NARE~!
Rating: A

Next is a promo package chronicling Goto's IWGP title win at Invasion Attack, his loss to Tenzan at Dontaku, Goto getting his win back at the G1 Climax but feeling unfulfilled after losing to Tenzan in the WTL and knowing he needs this fight at the Tokyo Dome. Tenzan speaks of his Revival and pride of carrying the IWGP Heavyweight title into the G1 Climax and now he's back in the Tokyo Dome in a marquee match. He will beat Goto again and show there's still strength left in athletes like the Violent Bull. Goto says he cannot move forward if he cannot defeat Tenzan so losing isn't an option
Rating: B

(9) Triple Main Event I: Special Singles Match: Hirooki Goto vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan
Goto (17:58) via Shouten Kai
With his back to the wall, Goto shines and lays the Violent Bull down
Rating: A*

The promo package for Triple Main Event II starts wiith Shibata explaining that he nominated Tanahashi because Tanahashi took everything from their generation and left nothing. He brought nobody up with him to reach the heights he did. That's why there's nothing but old fossils still roaming the lands, and children that can't even stand on their own feet. Shibata will destroy what's left of Tanahashi so that those that are left, like himself and Goto, can finaly show that OUR generation is more than just Tanahashi. Tanahashi bristles that Shibata is so full of hate because HE is the one that stayed in NJPW and HE is the one that carried the company. He EARNED his accolades while Shibata failed elsewhere and now Shibata wants to come here and pretend that he's here for everyone of MY generation. The reason Tanahashi stood over his generation is because he proved through his matches and his heart that he was 100 Nen ni 1 Nin no Itsuzai and he will show it again on January 4th
Rating: B

(10) Triple Main Event II: Hiroshi Tanahashi Return Match/IWGP Inercontinental Title Match: (10th Champion) Katsuyori Shibata vs. (Challenger) Hiroshi Tanahashi
Third Defense
Shibata (22:51) via PK
Nothing that Tanahashi did mattered, as Shibata was not only as indestructible as ever, but he was more focused than we have ever seen, and even the Man of Talent couldn't break The Wrestler mentally on this day. But Tanahashi wilted phyiscally, and ate two PKs to go down
Rating: A*

Triple Main Event III's promo package begins: WWE's ascension is highlighted, showing every crushing victory, including Bernard's two IWGP title wins and him standing tall at the end of Wrestle Kingdom last year and his warnings that he will tear NJPW asunder. We then cut to Kazuchika Okada sitting alone, in street clothes looking pensive and thoughtful as black and white cut-ins of his stumbles over the last two years developing Tempest are shown, including his two G1 Climax losses to Bernard. Then his successes are shown slowly (with the black and white footage slowly gaining it's color back), as Okada changes from his street clothes into his ring attire, pulling up his boots as he beats Galloway last year at Wrestle Kingdom, slapping on his elbow pad when he wins the IWGP Tag Titles, putting on his chains when he wins the G1 Climax 25, pulls his coat on as he challenges Bernard at Power Struggle and a graphic of a tsunami rises as Okada turns to meet the camera and the graphic A Tempest Rises runs on the screen, then the picture is overlayed by a picture of Bernard laughing maniacally with the IWGP title around his neck
Rating: B-

Kazuchika Okada comes out first, using his extended entrance with the money falling from the sky coming down and Okada does his full pose on all four turnbuckles, making Bernard wait to come out as he and Gedo play games of showmanship
Rating: B-

Giant Bernard enters the Tokyo Dome next, dressed up as a traditional Japanese Oni carrying a huge kanabo, but curiously enough, he comes out alone as his forces have been all eradicated
Rating: B-

(11) Triple Main Event III: IWGP Heavyweight Title Match: (65th Champion) Giant Bernard vs. (Challenger/G1 Climax 25 Winner) Kazuchika Okada
Third Defense
Okada (33:31) via Rainmaker
Giant Bernard fights as a worthy champion, behind all of tricks he's pulled during the last two years, including physically blocking two different attempts at the Rainmaker but without all of his forces, and April Lee as the gamechanger, eventually Okada's youthful poise overtakes the Gaijin Elite, and after two dropkicks and two counters into a Tombstone, Okada drills Bernard with the Rainmaker and the champion falls on his thrid defense. Kazuchika Okada is the 66th Generation IWGP Heavyweight Champion
Rating: A*

After the match Okada and Gedo celebrate and do their victory ceremony and interview. As they seem to be wrapping up they are surprised when Ibushi comes out, followed by the rest of Tempest looking less celebratory and more concerned. Ibushi says he didn't come to NJPW to be a second banana and he didn't join Tempest to be a lackey. He came to New Japan to become the top wrestler in Japan and in the world. And to become that he has to face Okada and defeat him and he doesn't care if that means Okada turns on him and it's the end of his time in Tempest or if he loses his best friend in the company, he will do what it takes to surpass not just Okada but everyone. Okada waits patiently, even after Ibushi finishes and as Ibushi is getting frustrated, Okada smiles, taps Ibushi on both shoulders and throws up a Rainmaker pose as Golden pryo goes off around the Dome and Tempest celebrates with the fans before Okada sets off a second set of pyros at the top of the stage as he closes out the Tokyo Dome
