We are live at the New Japan Pro Wrestling press conference at the Ramada in Newark, New Jersey.

A number of NJPW wrestlers will be appearing with the daughter of Jumping Bomb Angel Itsuki Yamazaki translating for the American media. Yamazaki is in attendance as well. Tiger Hatori will be moderating the press conference.

New Japan Pro Wrestling President Naoki Sugabayashi thanked everyone for coming and officially began their press conference. He stated that all the stars of NJPW are very excited to be here and we know the fans are excited as well. They would like the tour to be a success and return next year, so he invited all the American fans to come to the shows and enjoy themselves.

They introduced Tiger Hatori, who was referred to as the Producer of the tour. He said that after the disaster in Japan, they need to have a lot of energy from NYC to Japan to help make it successful for everyone. He thanked JAPW Promotions for helping them with creating three sucessful days of events.

Ryusuke Taguchi said he was very excited to be in the United States and to wrestle here.

Tiger Mask said that while he's wrestled in the United States before, its the first time New Japan is here and he hopes the fans will enjoy the experience.

Jado said that he looks forward to showing the United States how amazing New Japan Pro Wrestling here. Gedo said that they have been partners for 20 years and they look forward to showing the American fans the power of their team.

They brought Jushin Liger to the dias, announcing that Liger will be defending the JAPW Light Heavyweight championship against Kenny Omega. Liger introduced himself and said he won the belt last year and he has brought it back to America to defend it. He said that he expects to bring the belt back to Japan. He said that even though he is in America, he is wearing his New Japan colors as he wants to show NJPW is in his heart at all times. He said that as a representative of NJPW, he wants to do his best. Liger was wearing a mask with long bright red hair.

Satoshi Kojima said that he is very excited that NJPW has come to the United States. He said that while he has been wrestling for a long time, he still wants to show his skills to the fans in America. He said that he will satisfy all the American fans with his performance and thanked everyone for coming.

Shinsuke Nakamura said that in his opinion, no one has his style of wrestling and wants to show America his original, strong style of wrestling.

They began taking questions to the press:

Liger and Tiger Mask were asked their feelings on being part in the tour and on being in the opening match of the card. Mask said that it doesn't matter what match they are in on the card because they can show their style in the ring. Liger said that he wants to win his match and retain his championship. Liger said that Homicide and Low Ki are good wrestlers but they are better and greater.

I then asked the panel what it meant to them to compete under the NJPW banner in the United States. Tiger Mask and Jushin Liger answered. Mask said that there is WWE and TNA in America but this is their chance to show the differences and the style evolution that the Japanese wrestlers have to offer the world. Liger said that everyone under the NJPW banner are amazing wrestlers and they all want to show the world their love of New Japan and that they want to satisfy the fans.

New Japan then brought in the next group of wrestlers. They showcased the IWGP Intercontinental championship and said they would have words from those competing in the tournament for the championship.

Hideo Saito said that he's wrestled in Puerto Rico and has won championships there, but after seeing the belt today for the first time, he'd like to win it and bring it back to PR, then take all of them back to Japan.

Kazuchika Okada said that he lost last year in the Tokyo Dome, so he wants to avenge that loss by winning the tournament and taking the belt back to TNA.

Tetsuya Naito said that it's been two years since he wrestled in the United States. He said that everyone in Mexico knows his signature pose and he wants to show it to everyone in the States to know it as well. He said he would like to win the championship.

Yujiro Takahashi stated that he would like to bring the belt back to Japan, but also to have his name spread across the fans in America so he becomes more well known as well.

Toru Yano asked if America was listening, as he was going to show everyone what his style was going to be.

MVP said he doesn't need an introduction as he's half man, half amazing. He said that he likes to collect precious metals. He said he was a World Tag Team champions and the longest reigning U.S. champion in WWE history. He is all about making history. He said that NJPW is making history by running in America for the first time and the first IWGP Intercontinental champion is going to be crowned. MVP said that everyone is nervous because he's the home team. He said everyone is talking about what they would like to do. He said that he's going to keep the title here in the United States. He said he was going to teach everyone about ghetto strong style. He told everyone else competing it wasn't personal, but business. He promised that MVP was going to make history again because he's straight-up ballin'. He walked out of the conference, having made his point with a hell of a promo.

They opened the floor for questions.

They were asked if there are plans for the title to be defended internationally. Tiger Hatori said that once the first champion is crowned, they hope it will be defended in Japan, Korea, Australia and all over the world.

They brought in Togi Makabe, saying he would be competing in the main event of the Philadelphia event. He said that even though he is wrestling for NJPW, he...Rhino burst in and said that he was tired of Makabe talking sh** in Japan and . He said that everyone needed to talk about how Rhino was going to destroy him. Makabe said, "f*** you." Rhino said that Makabe is coming to his house and said that he hopes Makabe kisses his family goodbye because he's going to destroy him.

Rhino was forced out. The hotel thought the angle was a shoot and almost called the police.

Makabe was asked what the issue between he and Rhino was. He said they had no relationship but since he is the best at all styles, Makabe will show he is the best, period.

IWGP Heavyweight champion Hiroshi Tanahashi was brought in. They announced he would defend the championship against Charlie Haas in New York City. Tanahashi said that he is the Ace of Wrestling in Japan and is the proud holder of the IWGP title. He said that its the first time New Japan is wrestling here in America. He said that they are here as NJPW because they have shown Japan how powerful they all are and now they want to show the United States as well. He said that he will be defending his title against Charlie Haas but he is still vert excited. He said that all the wrestlers promise America with a high heart and high confidence that they will show them all what New Japan Pro Wrestling is.

Tanahashi was asked if this was the first time the belt will be defended outside of Japan. He said that it was defended once in America ten years ago with Scott Norton but he will be defending it here for the first time.

Tanahashi was asked about winning and holding the title.

They brought everyone, except Rhino, in for photos with the media as a group.

MVP's promos and work this weekend were incredible. All you can say is that WWE really dropped the friggin' ball with this guy. His work was absolutely great and it's a shame politics led to his decision to leave, but their loss was absolutely New Japan's gain.

8. South Philadelphia Street Fight: Togi Makabe vs. Rhino.

Philadelphia Street Fight with Falls Counting Anywhere in the ECW Arena: Rhino vs. Togi Makabe

They locked up and Rhino was forced into the corner. The referee forced a break..in a street fight? Rhino shoulderblocked Makabe down and said, "Welcome to America, B****!" Makabe then shoulderblocked him down and they faced off.

They went for a test of strength but Makabe kicked Rhino in the gut. He charged Rhino but was backdropped onto the apron. Rhino knocked him to the floor and hit a pescado out of the ring.

They battled at ringside, including Rhino being whipped into the guard rail, which gave way. Makabe hit a flying clothesline off the apron to the floor. He went under the ring and tossed trash cans into the ring. He went after Rhino again but Rhino atomic dropped him on the railing, then clotheslined him off into the crowd. Rhino went to the top rope and dove off onto Makabe in the ring.

They brawled though the building and back into the ringside area. They battled around the ring some more. Rhino pulled a think plank out from under the ring and placed Makabe on it. He returned to the ring for a pescado but Makabe moved and Rhino crashed through. It looked nasty.

Back in the ring, Makabe hit a series of running clotheslines and then peppered him with punches in the corner. He nailed a Northern Lights suplex, which probably the first time they move was ever used in a street fight. He swung a trash can at Rhino, who ducked and drilled Makabe, nailing a DDT.

Rhino nailed Makabe in the head with the trash can. He covered Makabe for the pin but Makabe kicked up at two. He wedged a trash can in between the buckles and whipped Makabe into it, then went for a shoulderblock but Makabe sent him into the can, then rolled him up for a two count.

Makabe went under the ring and brought a board out. He placed it in the corner of the ring. He teased a powerbomb into it but Rhino backdropped him over. He went for the Gore but Makabe sidestepped it. Rhino grabbed him and just charged the corner. Makabe went throught the board, which exploded. Rhino scored a two count.

Makabe and Rhino went back and forth. Makabe forced the trash can over Rhino's head and nailed it with a piece of the wooden plank, like a bat, getting a two count. He wrapped his chain around his arm and nailed several lariats with it in the corner. He went to punch Rhino in the corner but Rhino lifted him up and dropped him into a powerbomb for a two count.

Rhino tried to drive him into the corner but Makabe forced him off. Rhino nailed a sidewalk slam and set up for the Gore. He nailed it but Makabe kicked up at the last second. Rhino set up for another but Makabe grabbed a trash can and slammed it in his face. Makabe went back under the ring and this time pulled out another plank. He then grabbed several chairs and set the plank up across them.

He tried to powerbomb Rhino but Rhino slipped out, only to be clotheslined. He placed Rhino on the board and came off the ropes with a flying kneedrop through the board for the pin.

Your winner, Togi Makabe!

Fun brawl to close out a GREAT weekend of wrestling.

There are plans to release all of the shows, which were shot by Samurai TV, here in the United States.
