New Japan Cup Night 3: A Thriller In Amagasaki

New Japan Cup Night 3: A Thriller In Amagasaki

Oh my, oh my I do declare! If you’ve been praying to whatever deity you believe in for a superb start to this year’s New Japan Cup, your wishes have well and truly been granted. Whilst Night 2 was nothing special, saved only by the gripping final to the Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Taichi bout, the opening evening of the competition provided us with the best big-man scrap this year when Michael Elgin upset the legendary Tomohiro Ishii.

Looking at the bracket for the 2018 offering, temperatures rose in anticipation of Night 3 in Amagasaki, where the remarkable Kota Ibushi would do battle with the colorful YOSHI-HASHI, and Brit Zack Sabre Jr. would test his skills against the eminent Tetsuya Naito.

With IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada waiting in the wings, two matches designed to take your breath away did not disappoint.
