    I feel like the current new japan landscape reminds of ‘97 or ‘98 wwf with the faction wars (dx, DOA, nation, hart foundation, los boricuas, etc)

    Omegas getting kicked out of BC soon. Too much is happening for it to not follow thru.

    Hopefully he takes the young fucks with him and then falle splashes them into living death.
    Merchandising though not a huge hit since most of their stuff says “the elite” on it

    Young Bucks sided with Cody and you can tell what’s going on at the end of their latest Being the elite video.

    Solid cards.

    Looking forward to Okada vs SANADA.

    Kitamura vs Elgin should be good too.

    The two weeks I was on vacation were great, but man I'm behind now...finally got to sit down and watch this. Only got to see the AXS version, but whatever. I know it's cool to hate on the AXS coverage, but if you want NJPW to grow Stateside, you should watching it. The better the AXS ratings, the more US advertising dollars, the more they'll expand to this side of the globe.

    Cody vs Ibushi

    -This was pretty meh. Cody is great at character work, but his ring work is mediocre. The shinning star moonsault looked stupidly contrived. Brandi's ass looked great.

    Tanahashi vs Switchblade

    -Tanahashi is the man, but White's young still and not on his level as a worker. Decent, but nothing special.

    Omega vs Jericho

    -First off, let me say once again that Dave Meltzer can go fuck himself. Not a fan of the Stargate or Gods of Egypt outfit or whatever that was supposed to be. That's the kind of dumb shit that makes me dislike Omega. I'm sure I'll get called an Omega hater for not liking the, but it really had nothing to do with him this time...other than the entrance. I'm not a fan of plunder matches and this was a plunder match. If you like it more power to you, but it's just not my thing and I like them less the older I get.

    Naito vs Okada

    -People throw the phrase "best in the world," around a lot. For money, these two guys and AJ are the only folks who should be mentioned in that conversation. I can see why everyone was ragging on Okada's pants...let's hope those were burned post show. This match followed the unfortunate trend of NJPW main events lately that go long for the sake of going long. Sometimes less is more and these two have had better matches with each other.

    I'm sure I'll be in the minority but I though this show was decent but not great.

    I definitely liked last year's Wrestle Kingdom better, but this was still a lot of fun
