The tournament matches were all entertaining. SANADA vs EVIL and Omega vs Suzuki were great and I really liked Juice vs Kojima as well. If you have time I'd recommend the watching the opener too, really good match. I love Kawato, him and Ibushi make quite the team.

I loved that opening match. ZSJ brought his A-game, and Kawato held his own in there. The kid has a lot of potential.

I loved Yano vs. Okada from a comedic standpoint, and I would've been happy with Yano being Okada's only loss throughout the round robin. SANADA vs. EVIL was solid, as was Juice vs. Kojima. Omega vs. Suzuki delivered. It was everything I expected it would be, and I hope they cross paths again.

I kinda enjoyed Okada vs Yano but I thought it was too long. The spots with Jado and Gedo were pretty good, though.

Day 2 highlights.

 

- Tama's counter into the Gun Stun

- Evil swinging the chair into all the photographers and cameramen at ringside.

- Yano

- Suzuki's selling of the V-Trigger

It's been an awesome tournament so far, with Ibushi/Naito being my favorite match of the tourney. Nagata's surprisingly been killing it.

Okada/Yano was really alot of fun, finished night two and Omega/Suzuki was dope. So was EVIL/Sanada.


Holy *Censored* the start of night three got me amped for Sanada and Suzuki on night four.

Not a fan of Zack Sabre Jr., whilst still admiring certain spots at the same time, so far. He had this unreal pin attempt against Ibushi, but I've seen two matches and it feels too much like a ZSJ-exhibition match, where the other guy just doesn't come into play at all. Which is probably intentional, but I don't really know what to think of it.

Another G1 card, another day in a world without Daryl. He will be missed, but we must press forward. Tomorrow night's card looks awesome. SANADA gets a chance to shine and maybe hint at a future main event title feud vs. Okada. Yano and Kenny Omega will also face off in what should be a hilarious matchup. I can't wait.

Juice vs. Evil was way better than it had any right to be. Biggest suprise of the G1 for me so far. I expected a good match but it was great.

Finally caught up. Ibushi vs Ishii has been the best match besides Ibushi vs Naito. The 2nd half of Okada vs Elgin was awesome too. There really haven't been any bad matches and I'm really digging every Nagata match, wish he'd get more wins.


Oh and I'm still mourning Daryl :(

Juice is great, man, hope they continue to have faith in him.
