code:

1. KUSHIDA [8]
- BUSHI [8]
- Ricochet [8]
4. Jushin Thunder Liger [6]
- TAKA Michinoku [6]
- Matt Jackson [6]
- Mascara Dorada [6]
8. Alex Koslov [0]

Block B:

The BOSJ is basically the G1 for juniors. It's a multi-day, round-robin tournament with the top two wrestlers in each block advancing to the semi-finals on June 8th. NJPW may not put as much emphasis on the juniors as they did in the '90s, but they still have some great wrestlers and and they brought in three really good outsiders in Mascara Dorada, Ricochet, and Kenny Omega. Winner gets a IWGP jr. championship match vs. Ibsuhi at the 6/21 Dominion show. There seems to be no obvious winner unlike last year's so it has the potential to be more suspenseful.

I'm not an expert on their domestic television but I believe everything's filmed. All their shows last year were at the very least and eventually made the rounds. Less non Ustream stuff makes it through anymore but the recent Taiwan shows went up via the usual sources pretty quick.

I certainly hope they do, I want to see all the matches with KUSHIDA, Ricochet, and Dorada facing each other and sadly none of them are at the two Korakuen Hall shows.

The 5:30am shows are so much easier than the 2am shows. If I go to bed a little early I can probably wake up in time to see most of this before work tomorrow.

Some of them get broadcast on nicovideo, I subbed to that to watch those BOSJ dates last year and it wasn't worth the time even though it was such a cheap subscription. The shows on there are really just televised house shows, no commentary (not that you understand it but it holds your attention better), one camera angle, and they don't work as hard in the ring.

Whatever SamuraiTV shows that aren't on USTREAM may pop up on dailymotion or YouTube after a while but it looks like there's only one on there that isn't iPPV.

I don't see any of the old guys or tag team guys winning it, and Ibushi already beat Taguchi & Desperado recently. I think the most interesting choices would be Omega/Ricochet/Dorada. They haven't been afraid to repeat PPV matches this year so Taguchi wouldn't be a huge surprise.

He's main eventing both Korakuen shows so it can't be ruled out, but he just had a shot at Dontaku and isn't that over for a guy that had a recent big return where he beat Devitt. Can't see them doing that again so quick when there's so many other possibilities. I could see one of the outsiders winning it or maybe even Matt Jackson since the Bullet Club are targeting all the belts.

Ninety-one? There are ninety other "Tiger Drivers"? Do any involve actual tigers, or driving?


I really want one of the Time Splitters to win, they have to elevate someone and both KUSHIDA or Shelley would make good matchups for Ibushi.

But it's probably gonna be Taguchi.

Well Liger/BUSHI was the best match so far, pretty fun stuff. Liger seemed pretty heelish to me, or is that the way his matches usually go?
