A double dose of New Japan videos today from their YouTube channel: First up is the 7/13 main event of IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Karl Anderson & Giant Bernard vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi & Hirooki Goto for the titles, the full match is below:
Next up is a special highlight package VTR created by the promotion, featuring highlights and top moments from the first half of 2011 starting with Tokyo Dome on 1/4 and going up to this past Sunday’s big show in Hokkaido. It also includes footage from CMLL FANTASTICA MANIA 2011, Debruary 20 in Sendai, post-3/11 earthquake clips, New Japan Cup 2011 (interrupted by the earthquake), April’s Korakuen big show, May’s annual blowout show in Fukuoka, clips from the USA weekend in May, BEST OF THE SUPER JUNIOR footage, and wraps up with DOMINION 6.18 clips including the return of Mitsuhide Hirasawa (now Hideo Saito) & his heel turn and Kota Ibushi’s IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title win and more with a quick teaser at the end for the next tour, the annual G1 CLIMAX Tournament. The soundtrack is performed by Yonosuke Kitamura. It’s nearly 6 months of action nicely packed into 6 1/2 minutes. Check it out:
