Only watched the Feb 3rd show last night. Ishikawa and Suwama are such a beast team and Kento/Tatsu are the perfect opponents to garner heat on/draw sympathy from the crowd. It's old news but it never fails to impress me at how good Miyahara is, best ace in the business.

Looking at the lineups a Kento vs. Marufuji final seems likely.

The 4.25 show I can see Zeus, Suwama and Marufuji all needing to win that night to win Block B, then the 4.29 show looks like Ishikawa, Takagi, Doering, Miyahara and Hino all needing a win to win Block A, with Ishikawa facing Takagi and Miyahara facing Hino. Miyahara vs Marufuji seems most likely too me as well.

Hikaru Sato has agreed to rejoin Evolution today after a singles match with Suwama. Hikaru is back in the faction to fight the rogue IGF army led by Fujita

Why did he even leave in the first place? The Evolution split was kinda all over the place. Aoki never left, is that correct?

Hikaru lost both his titles in quick succession, thought he needed a change to get back on his feet because his Evolution run hasn't been very rewarding.

I think they've done a good job making this a sort of uneasy partnership. Either Hikaru is setting up for a heel turn against Suwama or he defends AJPW and gets his Evolution/Suwama partnership gets some closure. I really don't like Hikaru in-ring but his character moments are done well. I can't not be intrigued by this stuff, or back last year when he was dual-champ and defending both all the time going so far as to say he wants to defend All Asia and Jr Titles in one night in Ryogoku. I dig stuff like that.

Ah, I didn't know that. I just noticed that he stopped wearing blue tights. That's a good story.

Nosawa thinking everyone buys him and Tiger being different people is lowkey funny

Think I'm guessing a Shuji Kondo v Koji Iwamoto junior finals, Kondo win and challenge in Saitama or Korakuen, he did beat Aoki in round robin action already too I suppose also.

Well, nevermind, I'm gonna go all in on Iwamoto, back to back!

845 fans in attendance for the jr league final today in Osaka.

The Big Guns won the tag belts from YoshiKen. And Ryoji Sai seems to be their first challenger. He will team with Dylan James.

Kondo won the Jr league and has laid down the challenge for the junior belt in Saitama.

Akiyama and Nagata will defend their Asia tag titles against Omori and Nakanishi at Saitama in a peak dad match

AJP will have a show at Edion Arena Osaka, first stadium. On July 29.

There's a possible chance Sai and James might beat Zeus and The Bodyguard, the world tag belts have been changing hands at every defense recently.

I'm looking forward to Kondo vs Aoki.

I don't know when he will be back in the ring. But he is in the back.

Anyway Sai vs Nomura for the All Asia Heavyweight title. Not sure if Nomura will win, more likely Zeus eventually.
