Bullet Club member and former IWGP heavyweight tag team champion Tama Tonga had some harsh words for the live English broadcast commentary team at the NJPW G1 Special in the USA events last weekend. Night 2 of the events was broadcast last night on AXS TV, and Tonga was very critical of WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross and former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett’s commentary for the events. You can see Tonga’s tweet below.
In the event the tweet later gets deleted, he wrote, “Commentating sucked at the #G1Special. At least @realkevinkelly knows the storylines and OUR F#CKING NAMES.” As of writing this, Jim Ross, Josh Barnett, AXS TV, and NJPW have not yet responded to Tonga’s comments.
