    News is finally coming out..Sydal got dumb and was arrested at the Osaka airport on 9/23. Airport police say they found 2.12 grams of cannabis attached to e-cigarette of his.

    New young lion Kanemitsu is my dude!!! I think he's gonna be a big deal in a few years

    Also Billy Gunn is a big deal right now, like huge, looks like a giant compared to everyone else


    Billy Gunn Bump Count:0

    It was actually kind of fun and he and Makabe had a confrontation after the match

    I'm probably going to just cherry pick some stuff and most of it will be War Machine and the Naito/Rush matches

    Hoping NJPW goes the emmalina route with Cody and just shows hype videos for the next year, because that 30 second video was the most entertaining cody's ever been

    Nah, they shot the angle for Goto/Shibata

    I think Cody's going to be in an 8 man, but I'm guessing he wins and challenges Shibata for New Beginning

    I can't believe these promotions are just fine with Cody making a "bucket list" and then giving him what he wants.

    Cody v Juice Robinson in a singles match at the Dome.... The Fuck?

    Also taking the NJPW 6 Man to whole new level with a 3 v 3 v 3 v 3 match(maybe a gauntlet)

    Kojima/Ricochet/Finlay v Ospereay/Ishii/Yoshihashi v Evil/Sanada/Bushi v Fale/Yujiro/Page

    So Cody gets a singles match, but Ishii and all those other dudes are working a clusterfuck

    cody vs. juice at the dome is like a match the CPU would book in TEW.

    I'm still real excited for Kenny/Okada though.

    Omega/Okada was so god damn great. I don't know if it will be as good not watching live, but after it ended i was convinced it was the match of the decade. they went 45+ minutes and i think i am going to watch it again today because i can't stop thinking about it.

    the last 4 matches were all really good tbh, but my god.

    I can't see any show topping that this year

    last 4 matches were great, Okada/Omega was an easy 5* and I LOVED Goto and Shibata as well

    some of the spots in Okada/Omega were insane, like I don't know how Okada didn't break his neck on one of them

    definite must see match

    Uncle Dave gave the Main 6 Stars


    New directions coming out of NYD

    Goto v Juice for the Never
    Yoshi Hashi v Adam Cole ROH
    Naito v Elgin for the IC
    Hiromu Takahashi v Dragon Lee for the Junior
    Ospreay v Shibata
    Ishii/Yano v KES for the IWGP HW
    Suzuki Gun v RPG Vice for IWGP Jr
    Okada v MiSu for the IWGP


    Suzuki Gun is back, which is exciting for MiSu and KES, everyone else really brings this down IMO, the already bloated NJPW roster gets even more bloated

    I called Okada/Omega the match of the decade, if not the best ive ever seen, but he shouldn't have done the 6 stars, it's just going to cause more issues than it's worth.

    Listen I don't think JR was that bad on the UK show/Takeover match but my GOD is he terrible at New Japan. Just so so bad.


    I'm currently on the second match.

    I normally like Barnett but I thought he was bad tonight too, but JR was horrendous, actively took away from a lot of the show IMO, it just sounds like he has no interest or knowledge about the product, I felt bad for Kevin Kelly, he's not the best but he's worked his ass off IMO to really immerse himself in the product and I wish him and Callis had the call tonight

    On a night that may have been an introduction for some new NJPW fans I don't know that anyone could have done worse than JR tonight
