We're just 1 Week away from January 4th: the biggest wrestling event in Japan it's NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12! A culmination of a year's worth of storylines will be concluded and some will start their beginnings in this prestigious event.
This is going to be the second time I'll be watching a Wrestle Kingdom live and I'm even more excited for this than last year's!
All 10 matches on the card are bound to be great and memorable in their own ways! So without further ado, below are my predictions for this year's Wrestle Kingdom at The Tokyo Dome!
New Japan Rumble
The New Japan Rumble is slightly different than that of the WWE variant. Eliminations over the top rope is still a thing but also you can eliminate opponents via pin falls and submissions as well. This match isn't really anything special though, at least at the moment, it's main purpose is to be the "appetizer" if you will and does a good job at being the pre-show match.
We get to see legends and other surprise entrants as well as NJPW stars and indy exports who sadly did not make the cut on the main show. I'm picking the veteran Yuji Nagata to win it this year, he deserves a moment after putting on some great matches this year especially in the G1 Climax.
WINNER: Yuji Nagata
