Speaking of shows, few have been mentioned several times in the WrestlingCulture statistics. In 2017-2018, the two largest “super-shows” of the two leading promotions – the NJPW and the NXT were thus equally represented.
Wrestle Kingdom 12 was scored by a Hirooki vs. Goto. Minoru Suzuki surprising quality after a year of mediocrity, the 4-Way Junior Heavyweight title scoring the second crowning of Will Ospreay and finally, the “dream match” between Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho. As for the “hit” of WrestleMania Weekend 2018, NXT TakeOver: New Orleans was a show inflated to blocks with the first match of the rivalry of the year, between Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa. the coronation of Aleister Black against Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas and the first throw-in of the North American Championship in a Ladder Match. Note that this weekend, the ROH was not far behind with Supercard of Honor XII, well helped by his own Ladder Match and this good Kota Ibushi.
