– As we previously reported, NJPW hired a new president for the promotion named Harold Meij. In an interview, Meij said that he wants to expand the company worldwide and bring in $90 million in three years.

He said: “Long term, I want us to trouble WWE. If you just look at our product you’ll see that’s not out of the question.

– Here is the press conference for the Best of the Super Juniors tournament.

– In an interview with NJPW, Hiroshi Tanahashi picked Hiromu Takahashi to win the tournament.

He said: “It’s hard to call. Impossible. Whoever makes it to the end it’ll be good; I think this is the best lineup in years. Of all the entrants though, my pick is Hiromu. Back at [Wrestling Dontaku] I had all that encouragement, but still he showed more power and energy than me. He pulls the fans in, he’s even great on social media. When it comes to getting motivated for his matches and really making the fans happy, Hiromu is the best. There might be people that rival him on pure ability, but he has that charismatic X factor that will make him win I think.
