It's about the top two matches for me. Both should deliver in the ring.

The fans hate Naito, so he's got that going for him.

That Bucks match was awful.  Honma/Shibata, Ishii/Tanahashi, Makabe/Ibushi vs Bullet Club and Okada/Anderson are all worth checking out though.  Mostly fun show.  I'm sure others will enjoy Naito/Tanaka and Nakamura/Minoru more than I did.  I can't stand Naito though.

Can't think of anyone I went from liking a lot to not caring about in so little time than Naito. I really thought his match with Okada for the Heavyweight championship from 2 years ago was the greatest thing ever. His return from injury has been really underwhelming. Shibata should have taken G1.

 

Tanahashi vs Ishii was motn for sure. I liked Okada vs Anderson too but I was kinda sleepy by the time it was on. I also don't like the Bullet Club hijinx that usually plagues all of Devitt's matches. Big fan of Anderson and Devitt but this stable doesn't do it for me.

I thought that the Bucks winning was predictable. Why would they win the tournament if they weren't going to give them the titles and set up something for January? Didn't expect the 4 way tho, that should be a lot of fun.

 

Good wrestling with predictable results, except for the tag match with the 2 falls. Hate those, so anti climatic.

 

Enoyed Naito vs Tanaka, hope Naito opens January with a heel promo turning on the fans and the promotion, saying he beat Tanahashi and is better than Tana etc.That would save this thing.
