NJPW Strong Style Evolved predictions
New Japan Pro-Wrestling will invade Long Beach, California, Sunday for an huge event featuring the promotion's most noticeable stars as they continue to grow their brand to the western hemisphere. The event will air on AXS TV at 8pm ET. NJPW also released the full card for Sunday's show on Wednesday, which you can check the predictions out below
Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi vs. The Young Bucks
A Dream match for indie darlings everywhere. If you have been following “Being The Elite”, Matt has been under the assumption that Kenny has been sending shots at the Young Bucks but this has been a ploy by Cody Rhodes to break the Bullet Club up. With the reunion still fresh on everyone’s minds, expect The Golden Lovers to win.
IWGP United States Championship Match: Jay White vs. Hangman Page
Hangman Page has been getting better with his tag matches with the Young Bucks but this is the first time we are going to see Page in a championship match in NJPW. Jay White just got his title so I don’t expect him to lose so quickly, White retains
Tomohiro Ishii and Kazuchika Okada vs. Minoru Suzuki and Zack Sabre Jr.
A Preview of the main event at Sakura Genesis on April 1. When this tag team match was announced, it was one of the hardest to predict. Okada will face the New Cup winner; Sabre Jr. and this will be an anticipated match up. Okada & Ishii will win further cementing CHAOS’s place at the top of NJPW.
Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Will Ospreay: Sadly, Rey Mysterio got injured last month and he had to be replaced, the good news is that Ospreay was the person who replaced him. Ospreay wins as Liger puts him over as one of the best young talents NJPW has to offer.
Dragon Lee, Kushida, Ryusuke Taguchi and Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Hiromu Takahashi, Bushi, Sakada and Tetsuya Naito: Naito has been on a bit of a losing streak ever since he lost his championship to Okada. Naito will continue to lose, as I feel that NJPW is creating a story with his current losing streak.
Tanga Loa and Tama Tonga vs. Marty Scurll and Cody: OG Bullet Club vs New Bullet Club, what a match. While I am a huge Tama Tonga fan (His persona is one of the best in the indies), Cody/Marty are winning to keep the momentum going for Cody & Kenny’s clash at ROH Supercard
Chuckie T and Toru Yano vs. Killer Elite Squad: Killer Elite Squad is winning……..unless Yano does something comedic and gets away with a win
David Finlay and Juice Robinson vs. Hirooki Goto and Gedo: Juice Robinson is rising within the ranks and he is over with the crowd in Japan. David Finlay & Juice Wins.
Roppongi 3K and Rocky Romero vs. Scorpio Sky, Frankie Kazarian and Christopher Daniels: Roppongi 3K wins as they continue to show why they are the best junior tag team in NJPW.
