Welcome to another round of NJPW predictions, here at Enuffa.com!
This weekend is the Castle Attack two-night event at Osaka-jo Hall, and there are some big matchups taking place. Sadly Hiromu Takahashi vs. El Phantasmo for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title is not one of them, thanks to a torn pec that will keep Hiromu out of action for six months or so. That really sucks. Without Hiromu as its anchor, that division is really sparse right now. Hopefully someone can step up. Anyway let's look at the ten big matches over the two nights....
United Empire vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi & TenCozy
This should be a fun six-man. I'm not sure why Ospreay is relegated to two opening tag bouts here but whatever, it's a way for his team to get a couple wins I guess. Ospreay, Cobb and O-Khan need to win to continue their momentum and also to make O-Khan look good for his Night 2 title match with Tanahashi.
Pick: United Empire
Yoshi-Hashi vs. Tanga Loa
The first night features two singles matches between Night 2's IWGP Tag Team Championship participants. Yoshi and Goto will challenge Guerrillas of Destiny for the straps, but first they'll face off in singles bouts. I don't expect this one to be great or anything, as its the lesser partners of each team. I'll pick Yoshi to pull out an upset here.
