John Pollock and Wai Ting review NJPW New Beginning in Osaka from February 11, 2014 featuring a IWGP Heavyweight Championship match between Kazuchika Okada vs. Hirooki Goto.

ALSO: “Stardust Genius” Tetsuya Naito receives a less than favourable Osaka reception as he defends the NEVER Openweight title against Tomohiro Ishii in an incredible match, Kota Ibushi defends the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title against El Desperado, and a legendary MMA rivalry is rekindled as Kazushi Sakuraba & Yuji Nagata take on Daniel & Rolles Gracie.

This edition of the Rewind-A-Wai is presented by Espresso Executive Producer, Kishan Ameerali.

Full Gi-er! Cone on lads that was an easy one!


John: What #1 Katy Perry song from February 2014 would best describe Goto in the G-1

Wai: California Gurls?


Great pick by @Kishan. I really enjoyed this review guys.

Looking forward to the next Rewind-A-Wai. When you get Brandon on the line, you need to trace the call to confirm he’s from NJ.
