I just wanted to post a follow up I posted elsewhere too.

It's amazing now looking at NJPW, as after New Beginning in Osaka, the Bullet Club once more own most of the titles: the IWGP World Heavyweight Title via AJ Styles, the IWGP Tag Titles back with Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows (Festus in WWE, DOC in TNA), the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Titles now back with the Young Bucks, and still retain the IWGP Jr. Heavweight Title with Canadian Kenny Omega.

Add in that Killer Elite Squad (Lance Archer who was Hoyt in TNA, and Davey Boy Smith Jr. who was DH Smith in the WWE) of Suzuki-Gun won the NOAH GHC Tag Team Titles, this shows there are some good champs with some interesting stories still out there if you look around outside the "big 2" of WWE and TNA. So in a way their losses are everyone's gain in NJPW for both the gaijins to get a new footing to add some new match ups too and for the established NJPW to also step up again to get those titles back down the line. I also feel ROH will play more of a role that is beneficial as will CMLL, which is more than the NWA can claim anymore.

So here's to more from NJPW with another show already coming up!
