Will Ospreay & Tomohiro Ishii & Hirooki Goto vs Kushida & Yuji Nagata & Jeff Cobb
January 5, 2019
Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW New Years Dash
Nothing could follow the WrestleKingdom show the day before, and this was the best match on the New Years Dash show. Fast paced, all action bout, and despite the acrobatic high spots of Will Ospreay and Kushida, I most enjoyed the interplay between Tomohiro Ishii and Yuji Nagata. Crowd loves those two and they work well together with the no-sell spots and strong facial expressions.
Jeff Cobb will hopefully have a strong year in New Japan in 2019, and it’s anybody’s guess as to how Kushida fares in WWE/NXT.
