3/4 today, but my contest is pretty well over. I was pretty convinced that either Elgin or Tana was winning but knew either of them could just as easily lose in the first round. Went with my gut and picked Tana. Oh, well.

In the same boat just predicted an Elgin Vs. Omega final for a G1 rematch.

Well i'm out of it. The most points I can get is 4 if EVIL and Shibata make the semis.

Went with Omega because I couldn't really see anyone else winning. I had EVIL in the finals though, so I guess I'm rooting for that. Can really only see EVIL or Shibata winning now.

Juice, Nagata, and Yano obviously aren't winning. Bad Luck Fale is there just to give a big win to someone else, this time EVIL. Ishii is a long shot, but could be a fascinating winner. Maybe next year for SANADA. He may have a higher upside then EVIL, but EVIL is the one being pushed. SANADA's might come next year, or after the G1 is New Japan gets really ambitious.
