IWGP Junior Tag Team Championship Match: Roppongi 3K (champions) vs. The Young Bucks
Donnie's prediction: Young Bucks take it.
Ethan's prediction: So glad this isn't the usual tag four way. Bucks win and start their 7th reign as junior tag champs and build towards ultimately putting over R3K.
NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Gauntlet Championship Match: TamaTonga, Tonga Loa and Bad Luck Fale(champions) vs. Ryusuke Taguchi, Juice Robinson and Togi Makabe vs. Beretta, Toru Yano and Tomohiro Ishii vs. Hanson, Raymond Rowe and Michael Elgin vs. Taichi, Takashi Iizuka and Zack Sabre, Jr.
Donnie: Champions retain for sure.
Ethan: Biz Cliz boys retain.
Kota Ibushi vs. Cody Rhodes
Donnie: Really hoping Cody pulls off the W but I think this one could go either way really quick.
Ethan: This is sorta a low-key dream match. Would be a huge win for Cody, but Ibushi will own this one. Interested to see what comes after with the Bullet Club tensions and Kenny's reaction to the outcome.
IWGP Tag Team Championship Match: Killer Elite Squad (Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Lance Archer) (champions) vs. EVIL and SANADA
Donnie: DBS Jr. and Archer are keeping the titles.
Ethan: Los Igobernables on top!
NEVER Openweight Championship Hair vs. Hair Match: Minoru Suzuki (champion) vs. Hirooki Goto
Donnie: I want the mullet to stay forever, I'm saying Goto leaves with the mullet and the title.
Ethan: This is gonna be insane. Goto wins.
IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship 4-Way Match: Marty Scurll (champion) vs. Will Ospreay vs. Hiromu Takahashi vs. KUSHIDA
Donnie: Marty Scurll retains and sings a beautiful song
Ethan: This will also be insane, just a different kind of insane. Rooting hard for Ospreay.
IWGP Intercontinental Championship Match: Hiroshi Tanahashi (champion) vs. Jay White
Donnie: The Switch Blade cuts up Tanahashi and takes the IC title
Ethan: Picking Tanahashi only because I don't think White is ready to take down the ace.
IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship No Disqualification Match: Kenny Omega (champion) vs. Chris Jericho
Donnie: Oh man, two all time favorites for me here and a real dream match. There's a ton I could say about this one, but since it's Quick Predictions, I say Omega trumps Alpha. Kenny retains in what's bound to be the match of the night.
Ethan: This is gonna be the match we look back on a decade from now that made the prestige of the IWGP US Title. Omega over Y2J as the torch is passed.
IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match: Kazuchika Okada (champion) vs. Tetsuya Naito
Donnie: Okada might be considered the best wrestler in the world, but I believe it's time for Naito to regain the IWGP Heavyweight title
Ethan: Naito gets crowned and we get a five star classic <3
