Top NJPW Stars at WrestleMania
IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada, IWGP Intercontinental Champion Minoru Suzuki and the “ace” of New Japan Pro Wrestling Hiroshi Tanahashi were all in attendance at WrestleMania 34 this Sunday night in New Orleans. Tomohiro Ishii and Juice Robinson were also spotted. According to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, Okada flew to the U.S. just to support his long-time friend and rival Shinsuke Nakamura, who faced AJ Styles in a match for the WWE Championship.
Young Bucks Rib New RAW Champs
Speaking of New Japan stars, world-famous industry killers and tag team specialists Matt and Nick Jackson joked on Twitter that they finally have a little competition, now that Braun Strowman and a small child named Nicholas are now the RAW Tag Team Champions. It’s wild that Strowman chose to pick ANYONE from the audience, and he didn’t pick Okada…
