Even though all the title matches are nothing new, it'll be fun to watch them in Korakuen, and they're all one-fall, it's still a novelty of some kind. Remember Cometa/Caveman from last year! I'm very happy with the lineups. Well, other than Mephisto of all people occupying main event spots. Caveman/Titan should be insane. I can't believe Virus will main event! :o Also, another Lee/Virus match! :geek: Virus/Liger! Sheeeeeeit!

Komatsu & Tanaka send-off series will be loads of fun, and I really like the Maya & Panther vs. Zavala & Okumura program set.

FM is always fun, it's some kind of post-season/pre-season mix for New Japan, everyone has a good time.

These shows all look so much fun. Lee/Tanahashi vs Okada/Virus on the 19th is something I can't wait for. BUSHI/Dorada I am enormously hyped for as well. BUSHI is so great, it's hard to not be all in on his current run.

I'm totally with you on BUSHI. Nice to see this underutilised talent finally get what looks to be a decent push with this Los Ingobernables heel turn. Of course the injury set-backs didn't help but they had done pretty much nothing with him since he came over from All Japan, despite the fact that the NJPW Junior Division has been thin in terms of 'homegrown' talent for years and consistently reliant on short term gaijin sticking plasters.

Hopefully they are finally seeing that he can be one of the cornerstones of the Junior Division- because the talent has always been there, it was just wasted in throwaway multi-man tags.

Guessing guys who aren't used like Ishii and Goto will be more heavily involved on the ROH shows.

Cavernario/Titán was in my top 3 Lucha matches last year, and Dragon Lee/Virus was in my top 5. Both should be awesome here too. Mascara Dorada/Titán & Guerrero Maya Jr./The Panther as opponents is the definition of going out in style. Those young lions matches rank highly on my most anticipated as well. These shows look great.

I said this when the talent was announced but with the talent they were bringing there was next to no chance the tour wouldn't be at least treat. If these matches come close to living up to their potential then it will be a rocking series of events.

-You have the "best hits" in Dragon Lee vs. Virus and Titan vs. Cavernario.
-You have a "Dream Match You Never Knew You Wanted" in Liger vs. Virus.
-You have the Young Lions getting some rad as all heck lucha opponents.
-Atlantis pairing with Juice Robinson? My word, is that sorta insane to see here.
-Not to be ignored that Hechicero and KUSHIDA are working opposite each other on the K-Hall shows. We will probably only get a minute exchange in each one if we are lucky yet I wouldn't have ever thought they would be in the same ring so that will satisfy me.
-The multi-man tags don't leap out at you as much as tags and especially singles but plenty of them could trend into "great" territory if they are motivated. (eg. Titan, Dragon Lee & Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Barbaro Cavernario, Hechicero & Virus/ Tetsuya Naito, "King of Darkness" EVIL & BUSHI vs. Atlantis, Mascara Dorada & Fuego)

Is there any reason that Kamaitachi isn't on this tour? Is it traditional to just keep the Japanese guys on excursion in CMLL away from these shows until they are back as regulars in NJPW?
