The Young Bucks d. Suzukigun (Taka Michinoku & Taichi) to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship - NJPW Power Struggle 2013
On this day: Alex Shelley & Kushida capitalize on earning another shot at the Forever Hooliganz by virtue of winning the Super Jr. Tag Team Tournament a week prior, finally defeating the duo at Power Struggle to win their first IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. (11/11/12)
Katsuyori Shibata vs Tomohiro Ishii
The G1 Climax this year is some top tier stuff - it’s three and a half hours a day for nine days, so I’m not expecting everyone to watch every second - but people should be tracking down the top matches and watching them because you’re missing out on some historic shit if you miss it.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kota Ibushi, G1 Climax 23, NJPW 2013
And this right here is my current match of the year. Ibushi with one of the best babyface performances I’ve seen in years. Unreal fire. Everyone should see this match.
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Prince Devitt, G1 Climax 23, NJPW 2013
This was such an awesome match. The best gimmick of 2013, without question, is heel Prince Devitt in New Japan. Also dig that sick ace crusher by Machine Gun Karl Anderson.
