NJPW and AEW clash in a pay-per-view celebrating their work together. Here are our predictions and prognostications.

Jon Moxley vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi –  Interim AEW World Championship Match

Name Prediction Winner
John Powell Tanahashi is a legend and would be an incredible interim champion but we all know where this is heading. It is just a shame that Bryan Danielson isn’t in the equation. Jon Moxley
BetOnline Jon Moxley -600. Hiroshi Tanahashi +350. Jon Moxley

Jonathan Schwartz

Mox. Tanahashi may appeal to the IWGP fan boys but he hasn’t translated well in his appearances on AEW, particularly his grimacing at Mox while half the roster fought outside the ring. It’s all academic until Punk comes back anyway. Jon Moxley


Jay White (c) vs. Kazuchika Okada vs. “Hangman” Adam Page vs. Adam Cole –  IWGP World Heavyweight Championship Match

Name Prediction Winner
John Powell I cannot see anyone but Okada in this scenario but White won’t be losing the title right after winning it. That would make no sense. You can bet shenanigans will play a role in the end of this one. Jay White
Jonathan Schwartz I would like White to retain but I think Okada takes it to offset the AEW title match.  Kazuchika Okada


Pac vs. Miro vs. Malakai Black vs. Clark Connors – Four-way, Inaugural AEW All-Atlantic Championship Match


Name Prediction Winner
John Powell This new championship will certainly add another dimension to AEW just like what the US and Intercontinental titles do for the WWE. Pac has been a warhorse, a solid worker and performer for AEW for a long time. One gets the sense he will be rewarded for that here. Pac
BetOnline Mir0 +125. Malakai Black +125. PAC +400. Tomohiro Ishii +800. Miro or Black.
Jonathan Schwartz What even is this championship? I’ll go with Miro. Pac hasn’t won anything of note since his time in NXT. Black should be main eventing; this match somehow feels beneath him. Miro


Jericho Appreciation Society (Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara) and Minoru Suzuki vs. Eddie Kingston, Wheeler Yuta and Shota Umino


Name Prediction Winners
John Powell The inclusion of Young Lion Shota Umino spells doom for Kingston and Yuta. More times than not in NJPW the team with the Young Lion loses.

Jericho Appreciation Society

BetOnline Chris Jericho, Minoru Suzuki & Sammy Guevara -180. Shota Umino, Wheeler Yuta & Eddie Kingston +140.

Jericho Appreciation Society

Jonathan Schwartz Kingston, Yuta and Umino. I demand an appearance by the Great Muta, who bestows the green mist on Blackpool Combat Club’s Young Boy and renames him the Great Yuta. Book it, Daddy-o!

Shota Umino, Wheeler Yuta & Eddie Kingston


Will Ospreay (c) vs. Orange Cassidy – IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship Match


Name Prediction Winner
John Powell One of the greatest wrestlers in the world today against someone who doesn’t take the business seriously. You are kidding, right? Will Ospreay
BetOnline Will Ospreay (c) -1000. Orange Cassidy +550. Will Ospreay
Jonathan Schwartz Ospreay. I like Cassidy but he’s wrong for this. Will Ospreay


Thunder Rosa (c) vs. Toni Storm – AEW Women’s World Championship Match


Name Prediction Winner
John Powell This could be the match of the night. So good to see Storm living up to her true potential in AEW as she did in Stardom. However, Rosa isn’t losing that belt just yet. Thunder Rosa
BetOnline Thunder Rosa (c) -500. Toni Storm +285. Thunder Rosa
Jonathan Schwartz Rosa. Too early to take the belt off her and Storm hasn’t shown that she can carry the crowd. Thunder Rosa


FTR vs. The United Empire (The Great-O-Khan and Jeff Cobb) vs. Roppongi Vice – Winner-Take-All Match for the ROH Tag Team Titles and IWGP Tag Team Titles


Name Prediction Winners
John Powell This is a very strange one as so much is on the line. There are so many ways this could go. We are going to lean towards the best tag team in the world today as it would be fantastic to see them draped in so much gold. When is RoH coming back to TV? FTR
BetOnline FTR -310. Roppongi Vice +250. United Empire +375. FTR
Jonathan Schwartz United Empire, even though FTR is on a run. This would have been a great place to do the Angle-Benoit-Jericho multiple fall match where the ROH, AAA and IWGP championships all change hands and everyone comes out stronger. United Empire


The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) and Bullet Club (El Phantasmo and Hikuleo) vs. Darby Allin, Sting, and Los Ingobernables de Japon (Shingo Takagi and Hiromu Takahashi)

Name Prediction Winners
John Powell LIJ, Sting and Allin are going to take this one. It would be cool to see Allin and Sting as tag team champions one day. Allin, Sting, LIJ
Jonathan Schwartz Biz Cliz. The Dudes With Attitudes failed with Paul Orndorff and JYD as members. Darby Allin is no Junkyard Dog.

The Young Bucks and Bullet Club
