NJPW's Twitter: "We Know There's A Real Shortage Of Professional Wrestling On Monday Nights"

New Japan takes a slight jab at WWE.

Prior to last night's episode of Monday Night RAW going live on the USA Network, New Japan Pro Wrestling's English Twitter took a swipe at WWE and pushed out a tweet which read that they know there is a lack of professional wrestling on Monday nights so they've made a match from their archives between Tomoaki Honma and former NEVER Openweight Champion Katsuyori Shibata free to watch.
