Will Ospreay became the IWGP World Heavyweight Champion after taking down Kota Ibushi at NJPW Sakura Genesis https://t.co/phvPHTR6pf
SAKURA GENESIS is here!
IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Match: Kota Ibushi 🆚 Will Ospreay
One stopped at nothing to get to the top. One puts his name, legacy and career at stake to make history. Who comes out on top?
LIVE and in English on https://t.co/z1DNREy98D
They keep doing this spot and they keep making this spot worse with every iteration. Stop doing this sodding spot. Ibushi being surprised on the 6th time just means Ibushi is stupid. https://t.co/BB9EgG7SmW
no fucking shit did they take the belt off ibushi only to put it on ospreay i fucking hate wrestling https://t.co/HpdXOOLj30
kota ibushi dakota kai
finally winning the title only to be screwed over and not given a proper run
WILL OSPREAY JUST BEAT KOTA IBUSHI!! WILL OSPREAY JUST BEAT KOTA IBUSHI!!
HE'S THE IWGP WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION!!
I'M LOSING MY MIND!! THIS IS INSANE!!
We could have just had Ibushi vs. Shingo...
I'm still not over New Japan having Ibushi job in his first defense to the British equivalent of a MAGA who's doubled as a rape enabler that got the victim blacklisted from the BritWres scene.
Kota Ibushi faz uma epopeia, ganha os cinturões, unifica e cria o título anticristo para...
PERDER NA PRIMEIRA DEFESA DA ATROCIDADE.
BOA SORTE PRA QUEM FOR FAZER A AUTOBIOGRAFIA DESTE HOMEM. https://t.co/M0y7y9dg5V
Guess I’m the only one happy that Ibushi lost🤷🏻♂️. #NJSG
I’m not as invested in his “journey” because he literally won and won and won and won. Wasn’t champ long but It was his dumb idea to unify them. Non Kayfabe.
I’ll never forgive him for that. Where was the outrage for Jay W? https://t.co/eZMBhQGQ2u
Ibushi's reign peaked with him sat at that table with the belts and a big 'ol grin on his face and management have thrown him to the wolves every day since. Almost the same as how Naito's year with the belts peaked with him eating at a press conference. Way to book your Champs.
you can say that, sure, but it made absolutely no sense for Ibushi to drop the title rn.
Will Ospreay defeating Kota Ibushi for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship was not what I had on my bingo card, that’s for sure.
I was really expecting to see that Kenny Omega vs Kota Ibushi match. Title vs Title. Winner take all. Guess not...

The pandemic dosen't force New Japan to have bloated matches.
It didn't force New Japan to poorly book Ibushi into wk after he lost the g1 case.
It didn't force New Japan to work people like Okada to the bone, possibly damaging his future career.
Ibushi messed with Two Amazing Belts and Paid the Price.
Congrats to Will Ospreay
If I’m being honest I’ve felt that way with Ibushi’s run with the IWGP title non of the matches have been out of this world. I also think people had this unrealistic expectation because of their past matches.
They want the belt back on Okada but didn’t want Okada to beat Ibushi
Also, I don't watch NJPW but why would they have Ibushi lose in his 1st defense. It's a new belt with a new lineage & you have him lose right away?
That's fucked up. Have him hold it for like a year to establish the new belt you idiots.
Dam Ibushi got a very short title reign. But they went all the way with Will Ospreay. Congrats.
Fuck it. Hot potato that title around. Give it to Shingo only to lose it back to Ospreay. Have Ospreay lose to Okada, only to have Ibushi win it back at a Road To event.If you’re gonna die, die hard.
