The big news outside of the block matches we've all known about for a few weeks are Rey Mysterio getting booked for Budokan against a mystery opponent and a Omega/Young Bucks vs. Kota/Chase/Scurll multiman match the first night at Budokan to build to the big singles match the next night.

Jeremy Corbyn has been made the subject of an official complaint to the Labour party over his suggestion in 2013 that some British Zionists do not understand 'English irony'.

Are you offended?

This is the first G1 I'll be following from the beginning. (Though I'll most likely watch it after the live stream, same day.) I'm super excited about it. I'm finally trying to follow NJPW on a consistent basis.

Kenny vs YTR is the least interesting YTR match to me and YTR matches are 5 of my most anticipated G1 matches.

Also loved the Adam and Mike Big Audio Nightmare preview idea where Jay White runs the table until he loses to Yoshi Hashi and falls apart.

Theory: Okada is no longer worthy of gold so he is no longer wearing gold. We'll know when he's about to win the title back when he starts wearing glittery, ostentatious gear again.

Usually, yes. Sometimes it takes a couple of hours, and in rare cases more than that.

Kind of glad Makabe is still in the mix as that reduces the number of matches I absolutely have to watch.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

I am very excited for my first G1. It's kind of mad how much wrestling I am going to be watching and I wonder how many undercard tag matches I will sit through before deciding to only watch tournament matches.

ATTENTION HOTLINE FANS!

There is hot news circulating about your favorite or most hated promotion or wrestler, but because of the sensitivity of these scoops I can't talk about them here on Something Awful.

To get the low down exclusive, call my hotline now!


Just a note as an aside. Matt Riddle could have been in this if it wasn't for New Japan's skittishness about his weed use rep and use while in Japan. Tag League late last year was going to be a road test until it wasn't.

It is what it is.

You'll get pilloried because he's a pretty boring wrestler with no personality. No, pulling his straps down does not count as a personality.

Elgin's had some great matches but his two big matches this year (Ishii and Goto) were boring and masturbatory and the definition of overkill. Guy seems to think doing a bunch of big moves with no sense of progression between them makes for a good match. The Juice match was good though.

Elgin is a great wrestler and a skeevy dude who may not be quite as bad as we thought a few months ago.

Also imagine thinking masturbation is anything other than good and healthy. You know a match is good when someone calls it masturbatory.

I do hope Elgin ends up with 2 points, tied with Yoshi Hashi.
