NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 31: Night 9 – A Block Heats Up, B Block Shuffles the Deck!

The intensity in the Korakuen Hall is palpable! We’re hurtling towards the climax of NJPW’s prestigious Best of the Super Juniors tournament, and Night 9 delivered another electrifying night of action. With several wrestlers reaching ten points and the finals picture becoming clearer, the pressure is on for every competitor. Let’s dissect the thrilling encounters that unfolded on May 26th, 2024.

A Block: Established Names Rise to the Challenge

The night kicked off with a surprise. KUSHIDA, a seasoned veteran with a reputation for technical brilliance, found himself staring down an upset against the high-flying Ninja Mack. The match was a fast-paced dance, with KUSHIDA showcasing his signature submissions and Mack relying on his agility and aerial offense. However, in a stunning turn of events, Mack countered a Hoverboard Lock attempt with a sunset pin, securing a flash pinfall victory. This unexpected result throws A Block wide open, as KUSHIDA’s eight points leave him vulnerable.

HAYATA, another veteran known for his brutal striking style, took on Kosei Fujita in a one-sided affair. HAYATA dominated with his signature kicks and submissions, culminating in a decisive victory with the 403 Impact. This win mathematically eliminates Fujita from contention, solidifying HAYATA’s position as a serious threat with ten points.

The rivalry between Blake Christian and BUSHI reignited in a frenetic encounter. Christian, known for his daredevil maneuvers, lived up to his reputation with a dazzling display of flips and dives. BUSHI, the veteran bruiser, countered with his trademark kicks and underhanded tactics. However, Christian’s resilience shone through as he countered a BUSHI attack with a springboard 450 splash, securing a well-deserved victory. Both wrestlers now sit at ten points, setting the stage for a potential rematch with high stakes.

B Block: Upsets and Close Calls Reshape the Landscape

The B Block witnessed a series of unpredictable outcomes, further muddying the playoff picture. In a match focused on targeting weaknesses, Taiji Ishimori faced Drilla Moloney. Ishimori, the “Bone Soldier,” relentlessly attacked Moloney’s injured arm, showcasing a ruthless streak. Despite the strategy, Moloney displayed incredible fighting spirit, pushing Ishimori to the limit. Ultimately, Ishimori emerged victorious, solidifying his position at ten points.

The ever-entertaining Yoshinobu Kanemaru went toe-to-toe with the powerhouse Titan. Kanemaru, the master manipulator, employed his trademark cheating tactics, including mist spray and illegal forearms. However, Titan countered with his impressive strength and agility. In a close call, Kanemaru managed to steal a win, keeping himself in the running with six points.

The encounter between Kevin Knight and Clark Connors was a clash of two rising stars. Both wrestlers displayed a blend of technical prowess and high-flying offense, keeping the crowd on the edge of their seats. Knight showcased his impressive athleticism, while Connors countered with his innovative submissions. In a hard-fought battle, Knight managed to edge out Connors, maintaining his position at eight points.

Hiromu Takahashi Delivers a Masterclass

The main event of the night lived up to the hype, featuring the high-octane offense of Hiromu Takahashi against the resilient Robbie Eagles. This match was a whirlwind of breathtaking counters and near falls. Takahashi, known for his daredevil style, unleashed a series of suicide dives and moonsaults, pushing the boundaries of human endurance. Eagles, the “Aussie Open,” countered with his aerial prowess and innovative pins.

The crowd erupted with every near fall as both wrestlers refused to back down. However, it was Takahashi’s experience that shone through in the end. He capitalized on an Eagles’ miscue, delivering the Time Bomb for the victory. This win propels Takahashi to the coveted ten-point mark, solidifying him as a frontrunner for the B Block.

Standings and What Lies Ahead

With Night 9 concluded, the A Block leaderboard is incredibly tight. Titan, El Desperado, Blake Christian, and HAYATA all sit at ten points, with Kevin Knight, Clark Connors, and TJP closely following at eight points. This logjam ensures every remaining match will be crucial in determining who advances to the finals.

B Block presents a slightly different scenario. Hiromu Takahashi, SHO, and Taiji Ishimori lead the pack with ten points each. However, Ninja Mack’s victory over KUSHIDA injects uncertainty into the equation. With several wrestlers still mathematically in contention, the final two nights of B Block promise to be nothing short of thrilling.
