New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) are back again and given that we’ve finished up with the Destruction tour and Fighting Spirit Unleashed is in our rear view, that means we’re onto the fourth and final of New Japan’s big four events, King of Pro-Wrestling! What a match. Yoh hits a dazed Kanemaru with a spinning flying forearm strike followed by a head and arm suplex for a near fall, Kanemaru fights back and he nails Yoh with a drop kick to the knee. The match begins with Suzuki-Gun jumping Roppongi 3K before the bell sounds, Desparado works over Yoh in the ring while Kanemaru battles Sho on the arena floor. Naito fights back and Taichi blocks the tornado DDT attempt, Naito recovers and eventually nails Taichi with a tornado DDT. Ibushi said Okada has been at the top for too long and its gotten boring. Goto ended up getting the pin on Yujiro Takahashi, which wasn’t a big surprise. Juice couldn’t survive the EBD Claw, which gave Archer his first ever singles title. Shortly after a couple of minutes of grappling, they got their blood flowing with Liger grabbing a chair, but referee Marty Asami stepped in. After the match, Taichi attacks the referee with the microphone stand before going after both members of Los Ingobernables. He sent Taiji Ishimori to the back and tried to fight fair. A brawl breaks out between both teams and it spills to the arena floor, Taichi grabs Naito and he throws him over the barricade. With only two and a half months until Wrestle Kingdom, we are running out of time to have those answered. After the match, we had Archer about to continue his attack on Juice only to have a returning David Finlay come out to make the save.

We would like to send you notifications for the latest news and updates. New Japan Pro Wrestling King of Pro-Wrestling 2019 results: Okada vs. SANADA, Ibushi vs. After the match Suzuki bowed to Liger as a sign of respect before heading to the back. Will went for his running backflip enziguri but after the flip, ELP hit the enziguri, which I had never seen before. Naito ends the exchange by landing a rana followed by a basement drop kick, Taichi fights back and he drops Naito with an enzaguri. For two guys that wanted to murder each other, they failed to get there on every level. Liger, the struggling babyface, tried standing up to Suzuki, but couldn’t bring him down and succumbed to the Gotch Style Piledriver. Finlay had been on the sidelines with an injured shoulder for about nine months. EVIL, as always, went for his patented home run chair shot and Ibushi sold it with perfect timing. Desparado attacks Yoh and throws him into some chairs in the crowd, Kanemaru places Sho on the barricade before nailing him with a leg drop. Not only is this the fourth singles match between Okada and SANADA this year, it is also their second IWGP championship match, with their first being at Wrestling Dontaku. Phantasmo offers his hand to Ospreay multiple times but to no avail, as the only one who will accept his hand is referee Marty Asami. Right after Ospreay hit the OsCutter, we saw Ishimori pull Asami out of the ring and attack the champion. It seems that we are getting Archer/Finlay in San Jose for the US Title. After Liger dropped the chair, Suzuki landed multiple chair shots on Liger, and Suzuki followed it up with an attempt to rip off Liger’s mask. NJPW King of Pro Wrestling '19 is New Japan Pro Wrestling's major event for October 2019, main evented by Kazuchika Okada vs. SANADA. After the match, Suzuki teased beating up Liger with a chair, but dropped it and bowed to him, showing Liger the ultimate respect. This match was incredible.
