It's a card that could shine pending a few matches in the midcard as I expect a great top end. I see the Young Bucks retaining, the Bullet Club becoming the new Tag champ, Conway retaining the fading NWA title, somehow Nagata holding things together in that freak show match so the Gracies win, a fun match for Yano and MUTA to win that might signify a union of Wrestle-One to NJPW, and Fale to get a boost with a big win.

From there I do hope Goto's good to go but I see Shibata winning to go up the card. I see a new Jr. Heavyweight champ in Kota as a reward for his hard work coming over from DDT. I think we might see a double turn with Okada and more specifically Naito who needs to find a good persona while Okada retains. Finally I like Tanahashi to become the new IC champ but that Nakamura will steal the show and keep in that upper echelon. Enjoy the show; I know I will!

Here's a quick lot of predictions from me before the show.

1 Young Bucks to retain in the Jnr Heavyweight tag.Their the newer of the 4 teams so makes sense for them to have a reasonable run

2 Tough to pick the KES-Bullet club tag match.With the shortage of tag teams I could see Anderson/Gallows winning with Smith/Archer and others to chase .

3 Would be cool for Kojma to win but I'd be surprised if a title change occurs here unless NJPW-NWA are doing a lot more together this year.

4 Nagata and Sakuraba should be to experinced for tha Gracie's .Will be intresting to see how the crowd react.

5 This will be fun .I got a soft spot for Yano but man Suzuki really wants a piece of him.Awesome to have Muta on the card too.

6 This will be a brawl.Having seen Fale twice live wrestle down here in New Zealand for my local wrestling group he;'s a big dude .Makabe will have to pull out all the stops.

7 Goto-Shibata will be epic if their matches in 2013 were any indication.Winner here could possibly get a shot ar the IWGP Heavyweight title sometime in the near future.

8 Ibushi to win but could go either way depending on Devitt's post this show plans.Add in Taguchi when he returns and we might have a three way feud which could be awesome

9 Okada-Naito could possobly steel the show with both guys wanting to prove maybe they should have ended the show.I have Okada retaining as not sure Naito's time for the IWGP title is just yet.

10 A Main event which could be a classic and is hard to pick.I could see Nakamura retaining though Tannashi not being able to challenge for the main title in NJPW may have worked for a IC run going into G1 maybe.

There you go all.Enjoy Wrestle Kingdom 8 and check back here as news etc comes in.

Tenzan forced Yohei to tap with a Boston crab. The match was so short. Didn't know I had to go to a separate link to get Japanese because my announce team is in Spanish

Interesting result but the right one as KES can chase as well as Tenazn/Kojima and possibly a few new teams
