NJPW ‘Best of the Super Juniors 25’ Top 10 Matches (Week 2)



Another week of ‘Best of the Super Juniors’ has concluded and there are now only three shows remaining until this year’s winner is crowned. This middle section of the tour got the short end of the stick.

Each show was recorded primarily through a single hard camera and didn’t feature any commentary. I don’t know anybody who prefers this style over the traditional multi-camera and commentary setup so unless you’re a diehard fan, you’ve probably skipped over these shows. Most people reading this may have cherry-picked matches that looked good on paper or received positive reviews. I won’t lie to you, the majority of this list can be skipped but the top three matches are certainly worth the time.

1. KUSHIDA vs SHO (5.27) ****
2. Hiromu Takahashi vs Ryusuke Taguchi (5.27) ****
3. Hiromu Takahashi vs Dragon Lee (5.25) ***1/2
4. KUSHIDA vs El Desperado (5.30) ***1/4
5. YOH vs Yoshinobu Kanemaru (5.31) ***
6. Will Ospreay vs Yoshinobu Kanemaru (5.29) ***
7. Hiromu Takahashi vs Chris Sabin (5.30) ***
8. Taiji Ishimori vs ACH (5.31) ***
9. Will Ospreay vs Tiger Mask IV (5.31) ***
