Oh my god, the Daichi Hashimoto vs. Ryuichi Kawakami strong title match on 1/2 was absolutely incredible! A great match of two dudes who just hate each other, with Daichi just, IMO, having the best look ever as he just kicks the ever loving crap out of Kawakami. Super hot crowd, back and forth, go out of your way to see this one if you haven't. I might be the high one on this, but damn, that was something else.

Where did you watch the match? As far as I'm aware they haven't put the show up on BJWCore yet, am I missing something or is it up elsewhere?

Check your PM's. Speaking of BJWCore, how disappointing that service has been. I was so excited at first for it, but it's just a real disappointment. I guess all these services can't be awesome.

Yeah for sure, I get why Mort cut them from the drive but it's definitely made watching them way more difficult. Hopefully it's just a slow start and they'll improve from here. Cheers for the PM btw, much appreciated.

BJW 1.2 is up on BJWCore now! If you haven't already, everyone needs to watch Hashimoto vs. Kawakami and Takeda vs. Tsukamoto. Both incredible matches.

So is it me or has Strong Climb been infinitely better than Champion Carnival so far?

Can't really be compared. Strong Climb is almost over and the Carnival is just starting.

You're right. More just me giving big ups to BJW. I hope Carnival gets better because it's largely been a snoozefest to my eyes so far and it feels like a bad time for AJPW to be putting on boring shows given that they've just introduced the streaming service. I'm also not totally caught up on Strong Climb so, to me, they're more comparable. But that's obviously unique to me and where I am with my viewing.

At least booking in the deathmatch division seems to be in good condition. No complaints from me about another Takeda vs Abby Jr match, considering the last singles one they had is one of my favorites.

The quality of the wrestling in the tournament was so high and I thought the matches and finishes were laid out so well that it was even more of a bummer for it to end the way that it did. And, I know I'm beating a dead horse, but the fact that I had to watch the last night illegally when I pay for the service is really frustrating.

The Ryogokutan show was good. I liked the junior title and strong title matches best. The main event was a fun spectacle, but one of my least favorite Takeda maches this year.

Forgot the Okobayashi match. That was very good, too.

Sekimoto/Hama at Korakuen was a fantastic match. Very simple story which worked great. The crowd was super hot for it.
