    Can’t wait to see this on AXS TV this Friday sounds like day 2 was just as good as day 1, hopefully they do more shows in the United States especially on the East Coast!!!! Congrats to Kenny Omega for winning the inaugural IWGP US Title, hopefully he brings the prestige to it the way Shinsuke Nakamura did to the Intercontinental title! Wonder if Omega vs Cody will happen down the road for leadership of Bullet Club? Sounds like they teased it, so who knows?? AXS TV’s coverages of IWGP is awesome and a great change over WWE that can bore week to week!
