It’s now June, and NJPW is back, baby! The New Japan Cup 2020 bracket has been released, and we are here for it.
Josh and Neo spent the last week or so (re)watching Wrestle Kingdom and catching (back) up on the storylines, rivalries, and top contenders as we head into the second half of the year. They break down some of the matches from the January show and share their hype over what’s to come.
If you’re looking for alternatives to WWE, or even just have a general curiosity about New Japan – we’d be glad to take you along on this journey with us!
