  1. This wasn't it, at least in my opinion. From what I've seen from Cody, he has yet to deliver in any meaningful way since leaving WWE. But I can't deny that the crowd was really hot for him. I just don't see it, I guess. I checked this show because I haven't seen ROH in a while, and I left it thinking that I made a good choice in not watching it regularly anymore. The feeling of the product is just not for me anymore, and I can't shake away from how lackluster the overall talent is compared to years past.
  2. Well, not every thing is about main eventers. These guys will establish different levels of credibility, I think. EVIL in my opinion is a nice midcarder, and doesn't have much more upside than that, but the G1 will make him more credible of a threat and consolidate him. Yoshi-Hashi is going from perennial jobber to upset win guy, now with his SANADA story. Maybe they double down on that on G1 having him escape with a win or two. Fale is estabilished already, he's the monster that can beat anyone on any given night. But of all these entrants, the guy I'm really anticipating is Tama Tonga, who I find highly entertaining. Granted, that tag title run left a sour taste in my mouth, but I'm still not out yet on him. I like his overall potential and think he can be an upper mid carder for years for NJPW. I think they realized the tag team with his less than average brother wasn't doing Tonga any favors, which is why they pulled the plug on it so quickly, and why they included only him on the field. I look forward to see him try to regain his mojo on the G1.
  3. I'm tired of predcting Shibata. I'll still root for him, but I'm tired of predicting it. Keep in mind that the G1 winner gets the title shot at Wrestle Kingdom. My feeling is that NJPW will want to do IngoberNaito vs. Okada III there. There's many ways to get there of course, but I would say the most likely scenario now is that either Okada wins G1 again, or he beats the winner on one of those G1 title shot defenses they have towards the Road to Wrestle Kingdom. Or maybe Naito loses the title at Dominion and then, same scenario but for him instead of Okada. But those two winning are the most likely, I would say. Tana not being in that ladder match just sucks. It loses like 80% of it's appeal with Elgin there instead, as I'm also not the greatest Omega fan (I like him, just has yet to stand out with the Heavyweights IMO) Meanwhile Ibushi really out there getting slapped by Inoki and working for Wrestle-1 smh
  4. I've seen a lot of guys hating on the match. Talking about how it was just moves for moves sake. Even Vader did it. And I hate that style of wrestling. But this was not that. Don't listen to those people. Disregard Vader. Watch this match if you haven't.
  5. I feel for Tana not being able to rest more like he was supposed to, but also, I always wanted to see him in a ladder match. Him being a fan of Shawn Michaels, I'm pretty sure he also likes the concept, too. And yeah, because NJPW does this so sparingly, the novelty of the match itself should help sell out Dominion on the Osaka-Jo Hall, a pretty big and important venue for them. PS.: And now for something completely different... I was never the biggest Cody Rhodes fan, but I think he could do well in NJPW if he ever wants to go there. And I'm not a fan of bringing too many WWE rejects into the fray, either. But Cody is an adaptable wrestler if there ever was one, and a crisp worker. I would love for him to challenge for the NEVER belt.
  6. And apparently Matt Jackson broke his hand, too. He also might be out of BOSJ.
  7. 1. Mostly. In many ways, Goto's like Reigns in reverse. People hate Reigns because he wins all the time. People hate Goto because he's chokes the big match all the time. Really, it's past underdog status the ammount of times he lost the big one. 2. Mostly a Naito town, but yeah, Naito grew a lot, too. He added a "CM Punk, speak up against the bosses in a very shoot-like way" wrinkle to his general disinterested character. Not a case of Okada losing steam at all. Naito just arrived that day.
  8. I laughed for a solid two minutes while watching the match, only for the standard "Ospreay doesn't care for your Frankensteiner" spot to reel me back in. This was in my opinion his most compelling performance, which is no surprise. New Japan's producers have a way of making people who can be a little spot-monkey-ish to really buy into their style. Happened with Elgin, Davey Richards, even Young Bucks, and so on. And once you add NJPW's logical way of putting matches to Ospreay's obvious gifts (athletic ability, fire, being an amazing seller when he wants to), it seemed obvious to me he would thrive. NJPW really was the best thing for his career IMO.
  9. I would put the title on Lio Rush without hesitation. Time for ROH to do something bold, and the kid is talented. Hey, Okada got the title when no one thought he deserved it, and look at him now.
  10. NJPW has that style too especially in Jr. Heavyweight tag matches, but NJPW and ROH matches tend to be VERY different. And you need only to look at Michael Elgin's performance in both companies and compare his style before and after NJPW to spot the differences. Elgin greatly benefited from being restrained to NJPW's style. Same as Davey Richards, Ricochet and many imports before. As for Tanahashi going after Lethal's belt... ROH would be crazy not to put the belt on Tana if he wants it. But I won't watch that match. The prospect of Tanahashi, one of the smartest, most logically sound wrestlers ever, having to sell a Lethal Injection gives me the creeps.
  11. People sleeping on Royce's nothing new. But give Tabernacle a listen. Powerful story and powerful storytelling. Can't ask for much more.
