Loved Kenoh vs Kiyomiya, went ****1/2 on it. Very interested to see how all the factions shake out here.

Very good main event. Made an star of Kiyomiya. Not sure he was ment to break his nose but it made him look much stronger in defeat.

Really feels like NOAH is strong going into 2018. Lets hope the gates start to reflect that.

maybe an overaction but Noah has made some weird decisions recently , booking korakuen level main events for the the smaller house shows in Yokohama and Kenou losing twice so far ( countout to Miyamoto in a tag and pinfall to Kitamiya in a 4 way)

Miyamoto's on a roll in other promotions and it makes sense to have the challenger look strong. Kitamiya's an old rival and won their feud early last year so them going back to it has me pretty excited.

NOAH's booking of singles matches is strange but they've been doing it since the REBORN rebranding and I can't say it's hurt. Can't say it's exactly helped either but they've done a great job booking these feuds to where a Kenoh/Masa or Kenoh/Nakajima match feels welcome even if we've seen them a lot. As small a roster as they have they have to make the most of it is the way I feel.

NOAH's next big show is starting to take shape after today's show, and I'm incredibly excited for the Jr. Tag title match. I haven't been high on, or attached to, the last couple of pairs of champions (even if one of them features a K-DOJO alumnus), but I PRAY to the imaginary gods above that Ogawa/Tanaka can pull off what I think would be an upset next month. It sounds like a wonderfully weird but logical pairing, and I would pop huge for these two vets to have a title run to call their own.

Hot young champion's first Great Voyage title defense against an old decorated vet. In that sense the dynamic between Kenoh and Sugiura is similar to Nakajima vs Shiozaki last year. Though, that's where the similarities end as Nakajima wasn't determined to break old men's backs to save the company. But, just as I was scared for a "safe" Shiozaki victory over Nakajima, I'm pretty worked up over the possibility of a Sugiura victory. NOAH's going to play me like a fiddle for the next month.

I was hoping for Masa Kitamiya to challenge but I'm fine with them holding off on that for a little bit. Maybach/Nagai sounded like the team of my (dark) nightmares so I'm glad Disco prevailed. There is another Korakuen on the 22nd so a lesser match like Harada/HAYATA might happen there, but if they push everything back to Great Voyage then it'll be a mostly one-match card unless they whip out something surprising in the undercard.

Read Mort's Twitter. They're still recording and plan on releasing the shows, just looking for a place to upload. Mort's going to make an announcement sometime today actually.

Hideki Suzuki has announced an invasion of NOAH, taking Cody Hall and Jay Bradley as his partners. First off, lolcodyhall. Second, it just seems like they're giving him partners for tag matches early and it's not going to be a real thing. Taking a big star like Hideki and throwing him with Cody fucking Hall and making it a real thing is a dumb, dumb thing to do.

No idea how long Hideki's run will last, but to dig up an old meme: Who will save NOAH from Suzukigun?

Now onto the 2/2 show, I thought it all was decent. The stuff I was expecting to be real bad was alright and the stuff I was expecting to be really good was... alright. Consistent but uninteresting up until the main, which was pretty good. NOAH's been shying away from the 30-minute epic main events for a year, but any semblance of that seems to have been killded as this was 16 minutes and based around table/count-out spots. I hope Miyamoto comes back but he doesn't seem to be on this current tour. I thought the match was a bit clunky with some really forced counter-exchanges and some finisher spam from Yuko but it was all good fun.

Where are they going with Kiyomiya? He lost to Marufuji here. I didn't expect him to win but it's weird how he's come back and was kind of protected in losing to Kenoh but not much since then. He's beaten no one.

As far as Marufuji goes, I think they are setting him up to be Kiyomia's white whale. When he finally beats him, it will be a big deal.
