One of these trophies is not like the other two…oh, wait-that’s not a funny-looking trophy in the middle! It’s perhaps the man of the hour-Yuji Nagata. At a celebratory press conference at the New Japan office today, Nagata showed off his ever-growing trophy collection-the 2011 New Japan Cup on the right and his new All-Japan Champions Carnival trophy on the left-and now has his sights set on the Triple Crown and after that the G1 Climax trophy, and of course another IWGP Heavyweight Championship, which he proabbly gets another shot at if he wins the G1. He’ll get his Triple Crown shot on June 18. At the rate he’s going we won’t be able to see him saluting behind all that hardware! (I can’t get enough of that salute, it’s cool yet slightly funny)
