2020-06-16-696x392

My wrestling watching has severely tanked in the last few months and of course from that, I haven’t felt much like reviewing stuff either.
But with New Japan making a return, it’s piqued my interest a little more and made me want to do some reviews again. So I thought I’d cover at least some, if not all, of the New Japan Cup.
