New Japan did show that there is potential with SANADA earlier this year when he challenged Okada and I feel there is something there with him. It’s a little bit of a curse and a blessing being in LIJ as he’s part of the hottest stable but is over shadowed by the mega star that is Naito.

I think the matchup with Naito is going to lead to a big moment in which he stands on his own.
I keep waiting for the moment when an LIJ member doesn’t put his fist up and walks out on the others.
With Hiromu out of commission, it could be a story of he was the glue and between his loss and the G1 the group fractures.
