NJPW 11/13 Final Card

The final card for New Japan's big Osaka Dome show is out, THREE DAYS before the event. And what big changes have they made? CANCELLING the Triple Crown and U-30 title matches if favour of sticking the HUSTLE idiot Naoya Ogawa in the main event as a tag match with Hustle-K (Toshiaki Kawada) against Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Hiroshi Tanahashi. Shinsuke Nakamura who should was set to face Tanahashi in the MAIN EVENT slot for the U-30 title will now face a mystery X opponent.

Cancelling the planned event this late in the game to ad some bozo cheap-ass attraction just to sell more tickets is something I usually expect WWE to pull off. But hey, now I've got another reason about why I'm not such a big NJPW fan. Bear in mind now I WON'T be getting this show due to the lousy changes they made.
