Master Wato appears at New Japan Cup semifinal, instantly finds conflict with DOUKI
After video packages surfaced at NJPW’s return event on June 15, speculation was running rampant over just who was on the path to Grand Masterhood. That question was answered at the New Japan Cup semifinals when Master Wato, who long time fans may recognise from earlier days, made his appearance.
Wato took to the microphone to vow that he would reach the summit of New Japan Pro-Wrestling, but was swiftly attacked by DOUKI and his metal pipe. Laughing backstage after his attack, DOUKI wondered whether anyone ‘had ever seen such a pathetic return’, while Wato demanded that a singles match be made. Will Wato get his wish? We’ll find out.
