Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Mediocre - Bad Luck Fale vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi Good - Will Ospreay vs. KENTA Great - SANADA vs. Lance Archer, Kota Ibushi vs. Zack Sabre Jr., Kazuchika Okada vs. EVIL I hadn't been too high on SANADA's tournament prior to the Okada match, but he was back in his 2018 G1 form in today's really fun blo...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Naito v Shingo was incredible you lunatic! 2nd best match of the tournament for me behind Okada v Ospreay Yeah, I seem to be way out to lunch on this one. It seems like most people thought Naito/Shingo was one of the best matches of the tournament. Even TJ Hawke gave it a positive review. It might ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Mediocre - Taichi vs. Juice Robinson Good - Hirooki Goto vs. Jeff Cobb, Jay White vs. Jon Moxley, Tetsuya Naito vs. Shingo Takagi Very Good - Tomohiro Ishii vs. Toru Yano When the blocks were originally announced I thought they looked about equally as good. But these two Osaka shows have really illu...

Mediocre - Bad Luck Fale vs. KENTA Good - Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Lance Archer Great - EVIL vs. Will Ospreay, SANADA vs. Kazuchika Okada Match of the Tournament Candidate - Kota Ibushi vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi This was the best overall night of the G1 so far this year.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Bad - Jay White vs. Taichi Decent - Tetsuya Naito vs. Juice Robinson Good - Toru Yano vs. Jon Moxley Very Good - Jeff Cobb vs. Shingo Takagi, Hirooki Goto vs. Tomohiro Ishii As with the last few shows, you could feel a lot of the performers resting themselves and not going all out in these matches. ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Mediocre - Kota Ibushi vs. Bad Luck Fale Good - SANADA vs. KENTA Very Good - Zack Sabre Jr vs. Will Ospreay, Kazuchika Okada vs. Lance Archer, Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. EVIL This definitely felt like a middle of the week, middle of the tournament minor G1 show. But the roster is so strong that most of t...

Mediocre - Jeff Cobb vs. Taichi Decent - Jon Moxley vs. Tetsuya Naito Good - Hirooki Goto vs. Toru Yano, Jay White vs. Shingo Takagi Great - Tomohiro Ishii vs. Juice Robinson Wow, the booking of the G1 this year is crazy unpredictable. No one in B Block has been mathematically eliminated yet, but if...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Decent - Will Ospreay vs. Bad Luck Fale, Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. SANADA Great - Kota Ibushi vs. Lance Archer, EVIL vs. Zack Sabre Jr, Kazuchika Okada vs. KENTA This was a bit of a weird show in that I was either really into the matches or just not very invested in them at all. Tanahashi vs. SANADA is ...

Mediocre - Taichi vs. Hirooki Goto Decent - Juice Robinson vs. Toru Yano Good - Jay White vs. Jeff Cobb Very Good - Tetsuya Naito vs. Tomohiro Ishii Great - Jon Moxley vs. Shingo Takagi New Japan really needs to stop pairing up Taichi and Goto. Their match today was thankfully less shenanigan-heavy ...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

I didn't get around to watching Fight for the Fallen until a few days after it took place, but I carefully avoided spoilers for the show during that time, since I figured that something big would happen leading into the next major Pay Per View. But it honestly turned out to be kind of an inconsequen...

Decent - Zack Sabre Jr vs. Bad Luck Fale Very Good - Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Lance Archer, KENTA vs. EVIL, Kota Ibushi vs. SANADA Great - Kazuchika Okada vs. Will Ospreay Okada/Ospreay was the clear match of yesterday's show, but I do think it suffered a little bit from the “nothing happens in the fir...
