NXT UK, Episode 7

The NXT Women’s Division waits on stage.

Stars from Dakota Kai to Rhea Ripley to Toni Storm to the fashionably late Jinny stand in attendance. Because Triple H is here! The Game walks out to join the eight women of NXT UK on stage, and introduces the General Manager, Johnny Saint! Fans fire up for both COO and GM, as HHH says “these eight women are ready to make history.” They will compete in a tournament to crown our very first NXT UK Women’s Champion! Johnny Saint does the honor of revealing the belt. And there it is, with crisp white behind the intricately detailed face plate. All eight women are ready. Birmingham is ready! Who will be the inaugural champion of NXT UK’s Women’s Division?

 

Sid Scala VS Jordan Devlin!

From big Dave Mastiff to towering Eddie Dennis, little Sid hasn’t had much luck since joining NXT UK. And while Jordan Devlin isn’t a mountain of a man, he’s still skilled and dangerous. Does Sid stand a chance? Or will he fall to the man with the Irish Nation on his back?

The bell rings, both men are focused. They tie up, and Devlin pushes Sid to a corner. Devlin digs his forearm into Sid’s face but backs off at 3 to say “You’re not in my league, you’re not on my level, and you don’t belong here!” But fans rally for Sid, and Sid fires off on Devlin! Devlin hits Sid back, then gets him in a urenage to standing moonsault! Devlins talks Sid as fans say “You Still Suck!” But Devlin hits Sid and whips him corner to corner hard. Then Devlin digs his boot into Sid. He wants the trash out of the ring, but he stomps.

Fans taunt Devlin that he’s no Finn Balor, but Devlin takes his frustration out on Sid with an armbar suplex. Devlin then traps the arm between his legs and twists! Sid clutches his arm, but Devlin is still on him with European Uppercuts. Fans rally up but Devlin puts Sid in a corner. Sid boots back, then puts Devlin on the apron. Devlin blocks, shoulders in, slingshot cutter! Cover, TWO! Sid survives and that frustrates Devlin. Devlin drags Sid up into a fireman’s carry, but Sid sunset flips! Cover, TWO! Devlin kicks but SId blocks it to fire off haymakesr! Sid roars, fakes Devlin out and gets a jumping neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Sid is close and fans cheer him on. Sid gets to a corner, climbs up top, and leaps at Devlin, only to get Devlin’s dropkick! Devlin drags Sid up, fireman’s carry, pop-up driver! Cover, Devlin wins!

Winner: Jordan Devlin, by pinfall

The Irish Ace continues his win streak while Sid continues on a losing streak. Will Sid ever make it out of the starting gate?

In-ring interview with Devlin.

Fans boo and jeer as Devlin is complimented on his newest win. The question is: “Have we seen the real Jordan Devlin?” Don’t make him laugh. The last thing Devlin is concerned with is the fans knowing who he is. Devlin knows who he is: the Irish Ace! Fans taunt him with “Who are ya?” Devlin tells Radsy to use that microphone and ask everyone else who THEY think they are! Because all Devlin sees is posers. The best one, the man in a mask and cape claiming to be a luchadoar when he’s from Leeds! Devlin knows who Devlin is, but who does Ligero think he is? The Irish Ace calls out the Leeds Luchador, when and where will these two clash?

 

NXT UK, meet Tyson T-Bone.

The King of the Travelers, this gritty gypsy has gone all over the UK and beat up everyone he’s faced. He wants to prove to himself and to the UK Universe that he’s the biggest, strongest and meanest competitor. He makes his debut next week, will the King of the Travelers become a king of NXT?

Amir Jordan & Kenny Williams VS Saxon Huxley & Joseph Conners!

When the challenge was put out by Mustache Mountain to form the best possible NXT UK Tag Team Division, many heeded the call. Can the Bhangra Bad Boy and the Luckyan make a better team than the Muscle Cat and the Righteous Killer?

The teams sort out, and we start with Huxley and Amir. Fans chant “Tarzan Jesus!” as Huxely ties up with Amir. Huxely brings Amir to the mat with a double wristlock cover, but Amir gets shoulders up. Amir kips up but gets a knee. Huxley whips but Amir handsprings through to show off his Bhangra dance moves. Huxley swings on him but Amir ducks and runs to run Huxley over with a crossbody! Amir handsprings again, then hip tosses Huxley. Cover, ONE, so Amir tags Williams. Williams headbutts the arm, wrenches the wrist, and brings Huxley to the mat. Leg drop on the arm, float over to cover, TWO! Amir tags in and elbows Huxley’s arm.

Amir wrenches but Huxley backs him up to ropes. Huxley backs off but Conners smacks Amir to distract him, and Huxley pounces from behind. The ref reprimands Conners as Huxley gut wrench slams Amir. Cover, TWO! Tag to Conners, and he goes after Amir. He has him on the outside and laces him through a corner to bend him against the cross bars! The ref counts and Conners backs off at 4, but then drags Amir in. Amir hits back but Conners shoves him and gets him with a back elbow, then a spinning clothesline to another clothesline! Cover, TWO! Conners keeps his cool as he drags Amir up by an ear.

Tag to Huxley and they mug Amir. Huxley has a fireman’s carry and tosses Amir to the mat. Huxley kicks Amir while he’s down, and Amir gets to a corner. Amir counter punches and ax handles Huxley, then hops up for a leaping lariat! Both men are down and fans fire up as they crawl for their corners. Conners leaps in to hit Williams just because he can! Huxley drags Amir up but Amir breaks free and enziguris! Hot tag to Williams! Williams hits Conners back then slips out of Huxley’s scoop. He baits Huxley in to dump him out, then triangle jump back elbow!

Williams wrecks Conners with a dropkick, skins the cat and DIVES on the Muscle Cat! Williams puts Huxley in then climbs up top. He leaps over Huxley, rolls through but his tilt-o-whirl is derailed. Huxley tags in Conners, Conners runs in, sunset flip into buckles! Conners hits Amir for good measure, then drags Williams up for the Don’t Look Down! Cover, Conners & Huxley win!

Winners: Joseph Conners & Saxon Huxley, Conners pinning

The gritty Conners and the towering Huxley worked as a team here, but will they stick together long enough to take on Mustache Mountain?

We have our NXT UK Women’s Championship Tournament Bracket!

To begin this historic tournament, it will be:

Dakota Kai VS Nina Samuels!
Rhea Ripley VS Xia Brookside!
Jinny VS Millie McKenzie!
and Toni Storm VS Isla Dawn!

Who will make it out of the first round and into the semifinals? Who will make it all the way to become WWE’s inaugural NXT UK Women’s Champion?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Trent Seven.

The Man from Mustache Mountain shares his thoughts on Zack Gibson. Gibson’s debut in the Royal Albert Hall, three matches in one day, that’s a great feat. But on the next night, he lost to The Bruiserweight. Gibson’s confidence has taken a knock so now he lashes out on the rest of British Strong Style. Seven is pretty sure 1v1 on the mic or in the ring, Gibson won’t get it done against him, either. Is that an official challenge? Well he is a wrestler, so “let’s have a go.” Liverpool’s Number One takes Seven on in the next episode, who will get the better of the other?

 

Tyler Bate VS James Drake!

The inaugural United Kingdom Champion wants to be one of the inaugural United Kingdom Tag Team Champions, but that doesn’t mean he won’t take a singles match here and there. Meanwhile, Mr. Mayhem wants to show everyone he’s worthy of challenging the current UK Champion, Pete Dunne, but can he do it against the original?

The bell rings and fans sing for Bate. Bate and Drake circle as fans start chanting “Big Strong Boy!” They tie up, and Bate gets the wristlock. Drake rolls but Bate brings him down. Bate wrenches the wrist more, but Drake gets up and spins around. He breaks free to snapmare Bate to a headlock but Bate quickly gets out to get the wrist back! Bate wrenches and Drake drops to a knee. Drake gets up and pulls at the mustache. The ref counts and Drake lets go at 3, only to headbutt Bate low. Drake wrenches Bate’s arm and brings him down to a chinbar. Drake hits the arm then wrenches it again. Bate rolls, spins and handsprings to dropkick Drake down! Bate then handsprings up and checks his mustache.

Fans sing as Drake gets Bate with a waistlock. Bate drops down to slide under, then he waistlocks Drake. Drake elbows out then brings Bate over to suplex him out. Bate lands on the apron, and feints with Bop to hit with BANG! Drake goes down and Bate heads up top. Drake intercepts with a big forearm! Bate hits the floor, but Drake doesn’t leave him alone. Drake bumps Bate off the apron then puts him in. Drake rams his knee in and wraps on a chinlock. Fans rally up and Bate fights back. Drake knees low and snapmares Bate, to then stomp Bate right on the chin. Fans boo but Drake grins as he stalks Bate, Drake stomps Bate more, then forearms him to a corner. Drake goes after the chin but Bate has ropes, so he lets off. But then Drake comes back to stomp and choke Bate.

Fans taunt Drake, Bate chops him! Bate gives a EuroUpper, then another. He gives more, then whips, but Drake reverses and dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Drake keeps on Bate with a chinlock, and he puts his weight on Bate. Fans rally and Bate gets up, but Drake wrangles him back down. Bate feeds off the fans’ energy, and he gets up with Drake like a backpack. Bate backs Drake into buckles, but Drake holds on. Fans rally for the “Big Strong Boy!” and Bate bumps him again. Bate is free, but Drake comes back for another chinlock! Bate pries his way free to arm-drag Drake and get a huricanrana! Both men are down but fans fire up with another song for Bate. Both men stand, and Bate rallies with forearms and elbows.

Bate whips but Drake reverses. Drake runs but into the boot and knee! Bate up, flying elbow! Fans fire up with Bate as he runs corner to corner, EuroUpper in the corner! But Drake follows to splash! Only to be caught and thrown! Bate kips up and hits a standing shooting star! Cover, TWO! Bate keeps his cool, and brings Drake up. Drake resists the back suplex, then fights out. Drake whips but Bate reverses, so Drake tumbles to the apron. Bate sees Drake, but fakes him out with the rebound, to then DIVE the second time! Bate puts Drake in, and gets the saido suplex! Cover, TWO!! Drake survives but Bate still has fans on his side. Bate brings Drake around, double underhooks but Drake back drops out. Bate gets to a corner, but gets a dropkick! Cover, TWO!!

Drake grows frustrated, but he stalks Bate as he sits up. Drake brings Bate around, but Bate slips out to jackknife cover! TWO, forearm from Drake but a haymaker from Bate. Drake enziguris and shoves Bate, then runs, but misses in the corner! Bate rebounds, clothesline! Double underhook, Tyler Driver ’97! Cover, Bate wins!

Winner: Tyler Bate, by pinfall

Mustach Mountain’s prodigy protege is victorious! Bate keeps rolling on, will he and Seven be ready for tag team gold? Will Bate also earn himself another go at singles gold in the near future?

 

Ashton Smith VS Wolfgang w/ The Coffey Brothers!

The Prestige owes the Last King of Scotland some major payback. Wolfgang & The Coffey Brothers all attacked Smith as a pack one week, then used chaos and numbers to get the better of Smith and his team in a Six-Man Tag. Things are meant to be 1v1 tonight, will Smith get revenge on the Regulator? Or will Wolfgang howl his way to another victory?

The bell rings, and Smith is aware of Mark and Joe on the outside. He circles with Wolfgang and ties up. Smith gets a cravat, but Wolfgang fights out with one big body shot. Wolfgang gives more big shots, then stomps. Wolfgang gives a EuroUpper, then another, and has Smith on the ropes. He drags Smith up to whip but Smith reverses. Things speed up and Smith gets Wolfgang with a dropkick! Wolfgang staggers, Smith throws him with headscissors! Smith runs in at the corner, but Wolfgang puts him on the apron. Smith counter punches then leaps for a triangle jump ax handle! Wolfgang only falls to a knee, so Smith keeps going. Smith leaps again, but into a gutbuster! Wolfgang stomps away on Smith, but glares at the ref as he backs off.

Wolfgang grinds his boot into Smith in the corner, then whips him hard corner to corner! Smith falls to the mat and the Coffey Brothers like what they see. Wolfgang eggs Smith on, dares him to stand. Wolfgang knees Smith low, then again. Smith staggers but hits back. Smith throws hands but Wolfgang rocks him with another big body shot. Fans boo and jeer as Wolfgang stalks Smith. Wolfgang wraps on a rear bearhug as fans chant “We Don’t Like You!” Smith endures the squeeze and fans rally up. Smith stands and throws elbows, but Wolfgang squeezes. They go back and forth like that, Smith fights out with big haymakers!

Smith reels Wolfgang in for a clothesline, but Wolfgang doesn’t fall. So Smith tries again with a bicycle boot! Then he runs corner to corner for a big knee! He keeps moving, dodges Wolfgang’s clotheslines to hit a leaping lariat! Fans fire up and “Woop!” as Smith whips Wolfgang corner to corner. Wolfgang reverses, but runs into a back elbow. Smith dodges Wolfgang to then hit a leap frog springboard crossbody! Cover, TWO! Smith is surprised but fans rally up for him. Wolfgang catches his breath as he scrapes and kicks at Smith. Smith throws another big haymaker, and another. He throws a third, then reels Wolfgang in for a fireman’s carry. Wolfgang slips out, but Smith elbows him away. Smith runs, but into a flapjack! Wolfgang runs for a sideways senton! Then he throws Smith with a trapped-leg exploder! Cover, Wolfgang wins!

Winner: Wolfgang, by pinfall

The Scottish alliance gets another win as Wolfgang smashes Smith! With these three standing tall and together, is there any trio that can stop them?

Mitchell’s WWE Monday Night Raw Results & Report (5/20/19)

Witness the Money in the Bank Fallout!

Published

on

WWE Raw Cover image

It’s the Raw after Money in the Bank!

And the Beast has the briefcase! Will he choose to strike tonight? Or wait until Seth Rollins is unable to fight? Plus, Becky Two Belts is now just Becky One Belt! Will the Raw Women’s Champion respond to the Sassy Southern screw job?

 

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Sami Zayn VS Braun Strowman; wins.

PLAY BY PLAY

Brock Lesnar returns to Raw!

The Advocate is alongside the #BeastintheBank as he rubs his shocking victory in the faces of the WWE Universe! Lesnar and Heyman go into the ring as he holds up the briefcase high above his head. The only reason Lesnar was even able to be in the Men’s MITB Ladder Match is because someone took out Sami Zayn before the show. And Lesnar, much in the fashion of the MITB contract itself, decided to appear when no one else could stop him.

“Ladies and gentlemen,” Paul Heyman introduces himself and explains that his money is on The Beast, “the purveyor of paranoia, BROCK! LESNAR!” And paranoia should be around because of all the conspiracy theories going on. And they’ve heard them all: this was hatched the moment Braun Strowman stuck Sami Zayn on that wall; that Lesnar was able to sneak into the arena through a back door. How can you sneak a Beast into the room? Maybe Sami was lured into a dark hallway and then someone with political pull in the WWE got Brock to be the eighth man. That’s far too much credit for them. Just blame Lesnar for JFK why don’t you!

But this is how it goes: the world and universal champions need to be very paranoid. Wherever Seth Rollins or Kofi Kingston go, they’re both vulnerable to the “greatest assassin” in the WWE, who literally has a contract out on their reigns. Heyman imagines Rollins being afraid to show up in the ring or on TV, because Lesnar might strike. As Heyman’s daddy once taught him, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean the world isn’t out to get you.” But it won’t be the world coming for those titles, it’ll be Lesnar! Because Lesnar has a contract that guarantees you HAVE to defend that title when Lesnar demands you defend that title! But speaking of the champs, here comes Seth Rollins!

The Architect is still WWE Universal Champion after a truly phenomenal match with AJ Styles, and he stands in the ring with Mr. Beast in the Bank. Rollins picks up a mic and says he’d be in a great mood after being in the fight of his life, and won. He would be, but he’s not, because he has to come out and “see this.” Lesnar with the MITB contract. Rollins cuts to the chase: he’s here being a champion that inspires people, and that Lesnar never had the guts to be! But he can’t do that with Lesnar hanging that contract over his head. Rollins makes a proposition: he beat Lesnar at Mania, and he’ll beat him again, but he doesn’t want to wait. Lesnar should cash that contract in tonight! Fans definitely want to see that!

Heyman says no to this, because it’s Rollins who has to play Lesnar’s game. This is Lesnar’s game of “antici…pation.” Which means Rollins has to wait until Lesnar feels like cashing in. Rollins should be used to waiting. Like waiting seven hours to watch his girlfriend main event when Rollins wants to be The Man. Rollins does NOT take kindly to that, and starts shoving Lesnar to egg him on. Heyman keeps Lesnar back, and says Rollins might not even be worthy of being Lesnar’s target. Lesnar might not even cash in on Rollins. Maybe Lesnar wants a new challenge. Or maybe a New Day! Maybe it’ll be Lesnar VS Kofi Kingston! Well ask and you shall receive! The Wild Card Rule brings Kofi to Raw!

Kofimania returns as Kofi stands with Rollins and Lesnar. He doesn’t mean to steal Rollins’ thunder, but he is trying to establish his legacy as WWE World Champion. He wants to be remembered as one of the best of all time! And Kofi can’t do that without beating the best night after night, the title on the line against the best! “So Brock, congratulations on becoming Mr. Money in the Bank.” But if he’s gonna cash in tonight, Kofi wants it to be him. Heyman just realizes something: Universal Champion, World Champion, and they’re both auditioning to have a match against “the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Universal Champion of the Box Office”! Mr. MITB didn’t need to go to them, they came here to him.

Heyman has an inside scoop that Rollins and Kofi aren’t done for the evening. And with both of them out here,  Lesnar and his contract isn’t going anywhere. “Stay tuned, the Beast is yet to come.” What matches are Rollins and Kofi in? Will they be able to win and be ready for a possible cash-in?

 

Someone arrives in the arena.

It’s Mick Foley! Foley returns to Raw to unveil the newest WWE championship! He says hello to superstars left and right, but what kind of title is he bringing?

 

Sami Zayn talks with Bobby Lashley.

Sami’s freaking out because he got attacked at MITB and is up against Braun Strowman tonight! Now these two haven’t always gotten along, but maybe they can help each other. Strowman and Lashley have a match at WWE Super Showdown, so why not help Sami soften Strowman up? No, Lashley’s not going to help Sami. He’s going to let Sami help him. Good luck out there!

 

Sami Zayn VS Braun Strowman!

The Underdog from the Underground and critic of the critics does not want this rematch with Strowman. He screwed the Monster Among Men out of the MITB ladder match, and then may or may not have been attacked by Strowman last night. Either way, is Strowman about to get revenge on Sami for the Falls Count Anywhere screw job?

(NOAH) WEEKLY NEWSLETTER VOL.35~ 19TH MAY 2019

Hisame brings us updates on all our NOAH favourites! RATEL’S, AXIZ and Kongoh! Also a nice update on YO-HEY’s unique state of mind.

Hisame brings us updates on all our NOAH favourites! RATEL’S, AXIZ and Kongoh! Also a nice update on YO-HEY’s unique state of mind.

CURRENT TOUR RECAP
“Under blue skies” NOAH held an event on the 18th May, which was only two events, and was held for their new sponsors, and 500 people on the roof of the Sekichu store in Saitama.

Sekichu are a hardware store who seem to specialize in home cleaning products, they also seem to have some kind of association with both All Japan and DDT too, and Jun Akiyama was there on the day wrapped against the spring cold in a Sekichu jacket.

The day was “non canon” and featured only ten wrestlers (plus the injured Naomichi Marufuji who was on commentary and gave autographs), everything was lighthearted with Go Shiozaki wearing a Sekichu company logo box on his head, and Taniguchi apologizing for knocking down a company display (which he was thrown into by Shiozaki). At the end of the event the fans got the chance to pose with the wrestlers, and it seems that the mascots did the same, and AXIZ also leaned on Hitoshi Kumano and almost squished him.

On seeing Daisuke Harada posing with one, IPW’S Ben Basden said “@IPWUK do you really want this representing your company? Fly him over to England already, he clearly has nothing better to do.”

The next day, the 19th in Gunma, was when the real events of the show happened, especially on the junior front involving RATELS and their enemies Stinger.

YO-HEY had said that he would be making an announcement in Gunma, and he stepped into the ring to do it after the match (which Stinger had lost via a lariat from Tadasuke on Junta Miyawaki). YO-HEY told Yoshinari Ogawa and Kotaro Suzuki that for Global Junior Tag League, he would indeed be teaming with HAYATA and going for the third consecutive win, but he would be doing this as a member of Stinger. Getting the win in any league, equals a challenge for the belt, but while normally this would mean either another team and another team alone getting it, in this situation it would mean the belt would be half Stingers, and half RATELS. Ogawa didn’t like this, and he and Kotaro attacked YO-HEY, stamping on his chest after Ogawa had knocked him down with an elbow.

HAYATA ran to the ring and threw himself over YO-HEY to protect him, and as he was pulled off of him, Daisuke Harada and Tadasuke ran in for the assist, the four of them did their tandem kick and threw Stinger out of the ring.

Afterwards, RATELS helped YO-HEY up.

Daisuke Harada asked the crowd what YO-HEY was? Was he RATELS? Or was he Stinger?

The crowd had no hesitation in unanimously saying that he was RATELS.

YO-HEY removed his Stinger t-shirt, and the four of them did their handshake, before Tadasuke carried a grinning YO-HEY from the ring on his back (I think YO-HEY’S lungs were probably a little overworked after the exertion), and Harada welcomed him home…although he did say that despite the fact that the four of them were going to start again from scratch, YO-HEY should not think that he was going to go easy on him.

YO-HEY later posted on Twitter that RATELS had forgiven him for his betrayal, and were kind.

“I’m home”.

So, now Stinger are a man down and both teams stand at four against two, it will be interesting to see if Naomichi Marufuji joins Stinger. After all, he is feuding with Daisuke Harada, Yoshinari Ogawa and Kotaro Suzuki are old friends (and heels), and in NOAH the line between the interaction in matches and units between juniors and heavyweights is one that is often crossed. 

Elsewhere, Kongoh got another win when the four of them (Kenoh, Masa Kitamiya, Atsushi Kotoge and Yoshiki Inamura) defeated the team of Kaito Kiyomiya, Shuehi Taniguchi, Minoru Tanaka and Akitoshi Saito, with Kitamiya evening the score against Taniguchi with the Saito Suplex. Naturally,

Kenoh started screaming afterwards about the usual things.

Katsuhiko Nakajima had another one of his classic beating up on Takashi Sugiura with a smug look on his face pictures taken. Nakajima, unfortunately, has failed to realize that this all spurs Sugiura to revenge, which is usually taken in a brutal way in title matches.

Global Junior Tag League starts on the 28th May 2019 at Korakuen Hall.

NEWS

“KONGOH SAUCE”
Two of the NOAH seniors, Naomichi Marufuji and Takashi Sugiura in particular, are baiting Kenoh. As you know Sugiura called the name “Kongoh” tacky, with Kenoh calling him a “stupid old man”.

Marufuji, however, seems to have gone a step further to wind him up, after reading an article in “Puroresu Weekly” and photoshopping a bottle of brown sauce which he labelled as the flavor of Kenoh’s gut.

Kenoh said he was looking forward to kicking Marufuji (who thought he was a funny guy) on his return on the 28th, Marufuji said sarcastically for

Kenoh to be gentle.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES
Takashi Sugiura will celebrate his 50th birthday on May 31st, NOAH had announced plans to have a fan birthday party for him on the 25th, but not given any further details, and the announcement appears to have vanished from the site.

Kaito Kiyomiya will turn 23 on July 17th with Junta Miyawaki turning 22 on June 14th, NOAH will hold a fan party for them on the 13th July, details to be announced.

Naomichi Marufuji will turn 40 this year in September, so no doubt NOAH will also announce a fan party for him.

CURRENT CHAMPIONS

TOUR TIDBITS
~ YO-HEY signed autographs from both himself and his lung.
~ Daisuke Harada has sworn that he will have a main event for a title match
~ Naomichi Marufuji has been bed bound due to his injury, and spent a lot of time (in between Twitter posts and hospital visits) watching Dragonball Z. He said he watched about twenty episodes.
~ Akitoshi Saito was interviewed on his thoughts of Global Junior Tag League, a league which naturally he is not part of. Heavyweights have never been asked their picks and opinions for it before, so it could be a good way for the Juniors & the Heavyweights to go to war, especially as the juniors were not asked for their opinion over Global Tag League.
~ Kaito Kiyomiya said in an interview that when the twelve year old him heard that Mitsuharu Misawa had died, he cried throughout the day.
~ As part of his rehabilitation, YO-HEY says he has been taking walks in the park.

BROADCASTS
The first night of Global Junior League will be broadcast live on G+ on May 28th 2019 at 6.30pm JST.

The 9th June show (the Misawa Memorial from Korakuen Hall, Tokyo and the second to last night of Global Junior Tag League) will be broadcast by G+ on Thursday 13th at 8pm JST.
