Really good matches between Kota and Naito & Switchblade and Okada. I have a hunch they'll go with Ibushi v Okada for the IWGP belt with Kota winning to become the new Ace of New Japan. Then you could go with White/Ibushi, Naito/Ibushi again etc.

Great match from 2014. You also get a cameo from the legend himself, Michael Nakazawa.

Wonder if it'll lead to Kenny challenging for the IWGP title if Chris wins it?, since he's free to do New Japan bookings too.

I don't think they'd take the title off of Okada now. I think he's waiting to drop it to Ibushi at Wrestle Kingdom. Then maybe do Kenny vs Ibushi if Omega irons out his issues with the company.

Youtube pulls them. Dailymotion has them under the https://www.dailymotion.com/Mr23Wrestling channel.

How far back are you needing to catch up?

In 2019

Wrestle Kingdom 13: Okada vs White I, Omega vs Tanahashi, Ospreay vs Ibushi, Ishimori vs Kushida, Naito vs Jericho II

New Beginning night 1: Suzuki vs SANADA, White & Fale vs Okada & Tanahashi

New Beginning night 2: Bullet Club vs Chaos 6 man tag, BUSHI & Takagi vs Desperado & Kanemaru

New Beginning night 3: Tanahashi vs White

47th Anniversary Show: Roppongi 3K vs BUSHI & Takagi, Ishimori vs Liger, White vs Ospreay

New Japan Cup: Ishii vs Nagata, Okada vs Elgin, Ibushi vs Naito, Ospreay vs Archer, Sabre vs Ibushi, SANADA vs Suzuki, Okada vs Ospreay, Okada vs Ishii, SANADA vs Tanahashi, Okada vs SANADA

G1 Supercard: Ospreay vs Cobb, Ibushi vs Naito, Okada vs White II

Hinokuni 2019: White vs Goto

Dontaku night 1: Goto & Nicholls vs Okada & Ishii, Dragon Lee vs Ishimori I

Dontaku night 2: Ishii vs Evil, Okada vs SANADA

BOSJ so far: Takagi vs Sho, Dragon Lee vs Ishimori II, Taguchi vs Yoh, Dragon Lee vs Sho, Ishimori vs Scurll, Ospreay vs Romero

That's almost 40 great matches so far and we haven't had the G-1 tournament or Dominion yet. On the other hand I know of only one WWE match I'd recommend to anyone (Kofi vs Daniel Bryan at WM.) Although Rollins and AJ Sunday will probably be great. So that's 2 versus 37.
