– Above is from NJPW G1 Special in the USA from July when Kazuchika Okada defended the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Cody. Okada would finally put Cody down with a rainmaker to get the pinfall victory in a match that would go just over 27 minutes.
– As noted at NJPW Destruction in Kobe, YOSHI-HASHI had his own Titus O’Neil moment as he crashed into the side of the ring as he ran down to help out his CHAOS stablemate, Kazuchika Okada, from Jay White’s attack. Unfortunately for YOSHI-HASHI, he ended up legit slamming into the edge of the ring and busted himself open. NJPW put out another quick update that he’s undergoing treatment for head/shoulder injuries and a return date has not yet been decided.
