SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...

New Japan announced Tuesday the full roster for this year’s Best of the Super Jrs. tournament running May 21 to June 7.

New Japan also set the spring schedule – Wrestling Dontaku took place on Tuesday (May 3), the NJPW vs. NOAH Lion’s Gate Project show is May 19, BOSJ kicks off May 21, BOSJ concludes on June 7, and the big Dominion PPV is June 19 in Osaka.

Best of Super Jrs. Field

A Block

  • IWGP Jr. Hvt. champion KUSHIDA
  • Ryusuke Taguchi
  • Kyle O’Reilly (ROH)
  • Matt Sydal (ROH – debut)
  • Matt Jackson (Bullet Club)
  • Rocky Romero
  • Gedo (CHAOS)
  • BUSHI (L.I.J.)

ANALYSIS: The A Block has the reigning Jr. Hvt. champion, plus some good, solid wrestlers throughout. Perhaps not the flashiest matches in the A Block, but solid action.

B Block

  • Jushin Liger
  • Tiger Mask IV
  • Bobby Fish (ROH)
  • Trent Baretta
  • Nick Jackson (Bullet Club)
  • Ricochet
  • Volador, Jr.
  • Will Ospreay (debut)

ANALYSIS: The B Block has potential to have some stellar matches, mainly basing off the debuting Will Ospreay and 2014 winner Ricochet.
