What to Watch: NJPW World (January 2019)

Published

on

You want to keep up with NJPW but who has the time to watch everything they release? This month alone they put out eleven self-produced shows, two CMLL highlight videos and have a U.S. show that’ll be available on delay in February. There have been over one hundred matches released through NJPW World this month and if you don’t have the time for everything, I’m here to help. These are the matches that I’ve recommended throughout the month, which you can keep up with in real time on my show reviews, or wait for these monthly drops. The asterisks you see are different from the traditional star rating system. I recommend each of these matches. The more asterisks, the better.
