This week, The Doc focuses on New Japan Pro Wrestling. Late last year, his WWE fandom waning but his pro wrestling love unwavering, he turned to NJPW. It was a rejuvenating experience.
Rarely has New Japan been given a proper spotlight on The Doc Says, however. All Elite Wrestling has captured his imagination and dominated post-WrestleMania Season attention. NJPW shall no longer take a backseat. The G1 Climax has begun! What an amazing tournament it has already been and promises to be. Doc runs down his thoughts from the early-going.
Of course, NJPW has had yet another banner year, so today also offers a half-way through 2019 account of New Japan’s Top 20 matches, pre-G1. Did your favorite make the cut? Or perhaps you may be looking for a viewer’s guide?
Before signing off, Doc heaps praise on the recent heel turn by AJ Styles in WWE ahead of his United States Title bout with Ricochet at Extreme Rules.
