* A bloody Shinsuke Nakamura won his first New Japan Cup today after a grueling couple of matches. He first had to defeat Minoru Suzuki, never an easy task, while the Bullet Club’s Bad Luck Fale made short work of Shelton Benjamin. This put the “King of Strong Style” at a disadvantage going into the final and he lost a lot of blood after getting a cut above his nose. Fale put in his biggest performance since returning from his excursion in an exciting main event, but in an awesome finish, Shinsuke countered the Bad Luck Fall with a huracanrana and quickly hit the Boma Ye to win the match. Nakamura had won pretty much everything except the New Japan Cup today and can now add that trophy to his collection.
Then came the big shocker. It’s customary for the winner of the NJC to get a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Title, which had everyone thinking “Okada vs. Nakamura”, the battle between CHAOS leaders many are eager to see. But Shinsuke made a choice and said he couldn’t live with losing twice in a row to Tanahashi this year, so instead demanded a rematch for the title he made famous – the IWGP Intercontinental Title! This will take place at Sumo Hall next month, while New Japan must find a challenger for Okada in the next day.
