The Reverse GTR into GTR is the best finishing combo in wrestling.

Technical Wizard Zach Saber Junior in a match with one Hiroshi Tanahashi is Working The Leg

Honesrtly think a lot of ZSJ's problems would go away if he just wore long pants. He's so lanky the trunks look just makes him look even longer.

Where do you go from that? That should've been the final. They did a super piledriver!!!

Ibushi is going to get further in the best voting than he was one week ago.

I really want to catch everything, but will probably skip watching the multi-man matches and focus just on the tournament. In the middle of catching Goto-Ishii right now.

Anybody remotely interesting is mad in some way or another.


Random thoughts:

- There's nothing quite as cool as pissed off old man Nagata getting fired up
- Nagata lost
- Is Makabe the new Tenzan, or is that being extremely unfair? Even so, surprised Fale got the win.
- Ishii/Goto ruled... but Ishii lost!?!
- Night of upsets, not all that shocked that Tanahashi lost but I am that he submitted. Good for ZSJ, even if the match wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped it would be.
- I guess all the Americans who slept through the show logged on at the same time to watch it, because Naito/Ibushi was unwatchable for me as the stream just kept stopping/pausing/buffering over and over, which almost never happens with NJPW World for me. I'll have to catch it later.

That's a distinct possibility. I'm just finishing the main and while the show didn't skip or stutter, it was a little more grainy than usual. Hard to tell if that's my connection or NJPW World but if you're having problems too it could be.

Also that main event
