In a recent appearance on the Battleground podcast, Mike Bailey discussed what winning the NJPW Best of the Super Juniors tournament can potentially do for his career.
According to Bailey, winning the NJPW tournament can put him back in title contention in Impact Wrestling. He said,
“I think step one is going to be to win the Best of Super Juniors tournament. I think if I can win that and make a huge statement by doing so, but I’m looking at Steve Maclin, of course I am, but I am also looking at the X-Division Championship scene. We’ve got a big match between Trey Miguel and Chris Sabin coming up at Under Siege, and I like to keep my options open. I like to pay attention, and I will land wherever I fit best. My goal is both. I want to be both the X-Division and World Champion at the same time. Maybe tag team champion as well, but that’s what I’m gunning for. I’m a ‘shoot for the moon, and even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.’ I want to achieve big things, and I don’t think it has been done before, and I would love to be the first one to do it. Winning the X-Division Championship in an Ultimate X Match at the 20th Slammiversary seemed absolutely impossible as well, yet I did it.”
In a recent appearance on the Tru Heels BTR podcast, Sami Callihan expressed his desire to wrestle Minoru Suzuki at IMPACT x NJPW Multiverse United 2. The event will take place on August 20 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Callihan said,
“Suzuki, people have been begging for it for years. We’ve only ever touched in multi-man matches before. Like, the Death Machine vs Suzuki, I think the story writes itself. And that’s money, that’s one of my dream matches. I’ve pretty much had every dream match I’ve wanted in professional wrestling other than a couple of them, but Suzuki is one of them. The Death Machine vs. The Murder Grandpa, that just needs to happen.”
