Shooter calls on BCC allies for NEVER 6s
One of the wildest bouts on Best of the Super Jr 30 final night on May 28 pit Ryusuke Taguchi, Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Tomohiro Ishii opposite El Desperado, Mike Bailey, Ren Narita and Shota Umino.
A theme throughout the match was the younger generation of Narita and Umino falling over themselves to fight Okada. As an oft brutal match came to a close, Narita, who had tagged himself in at Umino’s consternation, would put Taguchi in a Cobra Twist, but Umino only had eyes for Okada.
Grabbing the timekeepers table, he flung the furniture at the skull of the Rainmaker, before issuing a challenge on the microphone. Wanting a shot at the NEVER Openweight Six Man titles held by Ishii Okada and Tanahashi, Umino promised a team of himself, Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli.
At hearing the news of Castagnoli, Okada was approving- but not of Umino. Telling the kid to listen to his ‘dads in the ring and be brought up right’, Okada cast yet more shade at ‘Shooter’ who will be even more fired up when it comes to Dominion in Osaka.
