[ZERO1] ZERO1 vs. BJW 8/5/19

I attended ZERO1's, "ZERO1 vs. BJW" event on August 5 in Tokyo. This event pitted members of the ZERO1 roster against members of the BJW roster. This was a great event, and most likely one of the best ones that I will be attending this summer. The results are below:

BJW: Takuya Nomura & Yuya Aoki defeated ZERO1: Shoki Kitamura & Towa Iwasaki

BJW: Daichi Hashimoto and ZERO1: Yoshikazu Yokoyama battled to a No Contest

BJW: Hideyoshi Kamitani & Yasufumi Nakanoue defeated ZERO1: Kohei Sato & Tatsuhito Takaiwa

ZERO1: Shinjiro Otani defeated BJW: Kazuki Hashimoto

BJW: Akira Hyodo & Yuji Okabayashi defeated ZERO1: Yuji Hino & Yuta Suzuki

BJW: Daisuke Sekimoto defeated ZERO1: Shogun Okamoto

The biggest takeaway from this event is that it further proves that Japanese pro-wrestling companies have a close relationship with each other that American pro-wrestling companies should consider emulating. Both ZERO1 and BJW are major promotions in Japan, and although they are competitors, all egos were put aside with the main goal being to put on a great event. Management and representatives from ZERO1 and BJW were in attendance to represent their individual companies, both with their own areas to sell merchandise of their company. Before the show and during the break, BJW representatives made rounds through the venue to sell merchandise and advertise upcoming BJW events. ZERO1 vs. BJW will take place again this December, and it surely will be an event to not be missed.
