-The NJPW streaming service New Japan World has hit 122,000 subscribers. A good portion of new customers have come due to the “Best of the Super Juniors” tournament.
-Reports state that the two most watched matches within that tournament are Rocky Romero versus Will Ospreay and Rocky Romero versus Robbie Eagles. Ospreay’s popularity is said to have given a boost to subscriptions for New Japan World as most of the recent sign ups have been from Europe.
-On Robbie Eagles, the fan reception in Japan has been extremely positive, especially among women and children, which has helped him backstage with management. Speculation is that Eagles his more accepted because he’s half-Asian. His Bullet Club shirt is currently the best selling shirt in the faction since the Young Bucks were removed.
