Yuji Nagata, Jeff Cobb, & KUSHIDA vs. CHAOS (Will Ospreay, Tomohiro Ishii, & Hirooki Goto) from NJPW 2019

Now, this was the good stuff and the exact kind of match that New Year Dash!! should be filled with every year. Everyone worked hard, everyone had a character motivation, intriguing things were set up for the midcard, and the crowd was totally into it.

Nagata seemed to have some new life in him after his great performance the night before. He and Cobb seem to be forming a team. KUSHIDA wanted to make a statement after dropping a belt the night before. Ospreay was continuing on his warpath of injuring folks. Ishii was pissed off about dropping the European Championship and was quick to anger at Nagata’s provocations. Goto was indignant that he got left off the main card of WK and working to prove a point.

Cobb vs. Goto was set up. Ishii vs. Nagata was set up. A Cobb and Nagata team was set up. Ospreay defenses were teased. Ospreay continued his KO gimmick to knocking out KUSHIDA for the win. ALL GOOD THINGS! YAY NJPW! (***1/2)
