Recommended Posts

Apparently Kairi Sane, Io Shirai, and Mauro Ranallo are all there. I guess I missed it.

Guy aggressively snapping shitty camera shots behind Kairi reminds me that I seriously don't get taking phone pics at live events that are being filmed by professionals with professional equipment btw.

Say what you will of the attendance, but the people who paid to be there are super into this show.

Is it just me or does it look to be a little bit better? It seemed more people filed in. Still a smattering of noticeable empty seats but it wasn’t as bad as before where it looked like full portions of the arena were empty.

Well, I mean, do YOU want to show up on time to see Rocky Romero?

.... I honestly think the crowd looks completely fine. It’s not totally full, but it doesn’t bother my wallet any, and they’re engaged.

Fun show so far, too. Glad Gedo’s a 100% heel again.

Better undercard than most non-major NJPW shows. Yeah, the audience is playing its part for sure.

Look at what 9 months of solid booking and his commitment have done for Jay's career. From people questioning if he had what it takes after the mediocre match at the dome with Tanahashi to beating Tanahashi in the G1 and now pinning him in a tag match. He's progressing very nicely although still has some dimensions to add before being truly ready for that spot among Naito/Tanahashi/Okada/Omega/kind of, sort of Ibushi.

Kevin Kelly reigning JR's sundowning in is an improvement over Barnett.

That apron superkick to Will's dome looked brutal. Wow, this is off to the right start.

Yay, the Miracle Superkick Connection is only going to lose not not run through GoD like shit through a goose because they're going to use Matt's back.

All In honeymoon is over for me.  Seriously, Fuck the Bucks.

I thought that was the best match of Tanga and Tama's careers.

Are we doing that DVDVR thing where we have arbitrary lines of acceptance for contrived wrestling shit?

Tanga Loa is such a load of shit.

I guess GOD needed to win this if they’re going to continue to be a threat.  But WHY.

Agreed on both fronts. They had to win if they're staying and not being Yujiro'd but... Can't they be Yujiro'd?

This is kind of strange because Bucks aren't in the tag league as of right now either, though I imagine they could make it work with the final being 3 days before Final Battle and ROH taping their tv earlier.

Oh fuck off (not for Cody winning, but for Juice kicking out of the Kudo Driver then getting pinned with the fucking shitty ass superplex pin spot)

God damn it. This SUCKS for Juice. He needed that redemption run after a weak G1 and he loses it to... Cody. Jyuuuuuusu!

Juice’s US Title run rivals 2006 Rey Mysterio WHC run in terms of how weakly he was booked. In fact, it’s probably worse because at least Rey had one successful title defense.

Definitely agree about that being the best match the GoD have had. Although, it was a pretty low bar for them to clear.

Cody had to win the US title so he could be a credible loser in the IWGP triple threat match? I guess? 

I mean, whatever. It’ll be really fun. And that main event tag, huh? Basically just a greatest hits, but those are some damn hits.
