Best Entrances Ever: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 8

NJPW held its yearly Wrestle Kingdom event at the Tokyo Dome on January 4th. Overall all the show was pretty darn great! It’s basically the Wrestlemania of Japan. And as with Wrestlemania, often it’s tough to live up to all the hype of such a big show. Wrestle Kingdom 8 may not have been the best show of 2013/2014, but all in all it was a solid show and the  top of the card really delivered. Five plus hours though, I was pretty wiped out by the end of it. But in a good way, I was happy wiped out.

What I want to talk about though, are the entrances. This show had the best ring entrances (and video packages) I have ever seen. I mean the matches were great, but some of these entrances were incredible. WWE could take a few notes from these guys. So, here are The Squared Café’s Top Five NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 8 Ring Entrances. Enjoy!
