Global Force Wrestling has announced that Good Ol’ JR himself will be announcing this year’s New Japan Wrestle Kingdom live from the Tokyo Dome. And it won’t be some half-assed post recording from a studio in the US. JR will be live in person at the Tokyo Dome, calling the action as it happens. It seems like all the pieces are falling into place in the deal between GFW and NJPW.
Personally, I think I’ll stick with the original Japanese commentary when I watch the show live. More so just out of habit, and a certain feeling of authenticity, but I’ll be sure to check out the English commentary with JR on second viewing.
The question now is who will be joining JR on commentary live from the Tokyo Dome?
