5 Dream WWE-NJPW Crossover Matches
There is no doubt that WWE and NJPW both have rosters that are absolutely stacked full of talent. With WWE being the #1 wrestling company in the world, and NJPW being at #2- everybody has dream matches consisting of wrestlers from different companies that they would love to see take place in any wrestling ring.
WWE is more of a company that provides entertainment, however, they have recently been focusing on their wrestling a lot. On the other hand, NJPW is a company that focuses on creating stories in the ring which are then backed up with promo segments- but the matches clearly matter more than the promos do. A crossover between WWE & NJPW is very unlikely to happen but we can all dream, right?
Here is a list of 5 dream matches that we would love to witness if the WWE & NJPW had a huge crossover.
#5 Samoa Joe (WWE) vs. Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW)
Due to the similar styles of wrestling that Ishii and Joe have when it comes to the ring, a dream match featuring both wrestlers would be nothing short of excellent.
Tomohiro Ishii is a wrestler that was pushed heavily in his career as a lower-card superstar. He has been in NJPW since 2002 where he made a name for himself by gaining a following that was unexpected. He was a very underrated figure in the wrestling world, and he has gained a reputation for being one of the toughest people in wrestling today.
Samoa Joe has always been more a well-known name, especially because of his days in the independent scene. Joe is another superstar that has a reputation for being tough, and he has proved himself in major companies such as ROH and Impact Wrestling. He has never stepped foot into an NJPW ring.
Seeing two superstars that have the same style of wrestling clashing together would be a great sight to see for wrestling fans. Both wrestlers understand psychology and selling very well, and they don't need to pretend to be tough due to their size and physicality. Both wrestlers are cut from the same cloth, and if these two were to ever step foot into the same ring - there is no doubt that chaos would occur.
