The weekly New Japan Pro Wrestling on AXS features Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. A.J. Styles for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
Powell’s POV: I assume the show still featured Mauro Ranallo and Josh Barnett on commentary. It will be interesting to see who AXS hires to replace Ranallo, who made his debut on WWE Smackdown last night. NJPW airs at 7:00 p.m. CT and there is also an 11:30 p.m. CT replay of one of the shows. AXS is available on Ch. 340 on DirecTV and Ch. 167 on Dish Network, as well as on some cable systems.
