What to Watch: NJPW World (May 2019)

Published

on

You want to keep up with NJPW but who has the time to watch everything they release? Between Wrestling Dontaku and the Best of the Super Juniors, fifteen shows were released this month for a total of 98 matches, not including the BOSJ tag matches. 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.
