Originally published at


Martin Bushby & Andrew Thompson are back with the final Wrestling Adventure of 2020. This month, they are joined by Sonal Lad from SonalsLife to look back at NJPW King of Pro Wrestling 2016.

One of the best shows of that year, the card is headlined by Kazuchika Okada vs. Naomichi Marafuji and also features Katsuyori Shibata vs. Kyle O’ Reilly and Kenny Omega vs Hiroki Goto. The three talk about New Japan’s 2016 as a whole including a big wave of departures with AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura, Omega’s transition to Heavyweight, and the relationship between NJPW and NOAH.

Finally, they share their thoughts on current New Japan cards and much more.
