The Meltzer 5-Star Project: #162 - Will Ospreay vs. Shingo Takagi (NJPW, 21-03-2021)

Let Me Tell You Something!

Last week's 5-Star match saw Will Ospreay defeat Zack Sabre Jr in the second round of the New Japan Cup. Ospreay proceeded on through two more opponents to reach the final, where he faced off in a second tournament final against Shingo Takagi, their Best of the Super Juniors 2019 final being that year's Wrestling Observer Match of the Year. Those are some pretty big boots to fill. Do they succeed with Ospreay's newly found (but perhaps surprisingly absent for large chunks of this match) heel attitude.Outro music: Yoko Shimomura - The Swords Descends and the Stars Scatterhttps://patreon.com/lmtyspod https://twitter.com/lmtyspod https://facebook.com/lmtyspodlmtyspod@gmail.com

The Meltzer 5-Star Project: #157 - Shingo Takagi vs. Jeff Cobb (NJPW, 05-01-2021)

Let Me Tell You Something!

Whilst New Japan have been knocking out five-star matches in the eyes of Dave Meltzer for a few years now (this is the third of four in just the first week of 2021!), but less frequent amongst those matches has been clashes where matches contested for the NEVER Openweight Championship is concerned. Well, now it's in the hands of recent favourite Shingo Takagi things are changing. Takagi finds himself in the unusual position of fighting a squat powerhouse who is bigger and stronger than he is in the newly-turned Jeff Cobb. Lorcan (@lorcanmullan) and Simon (@simoncross3) are here to see his this hoss battle is worthy of a perfect score.Outro music: Royal Hawaiian Serenaders - I'll Weave a Lei of Stars for Youhttps://patreon.com/lmtyspod https://twitter.com/lmtyspod https://facebook.com/lmtyspodlmtyspod@gmail.com
