Is the press conference up with English subtitles anywhere? Or do they not usually subtitle those?

Running with Japanese commentary for now. It's on a hype level unmatched by the English commentary most of the time and the last couple of shows I've gone with English. I did enjoy Chase's commentary, though.

My best memory of Jado and Gedo is their sweet old theme song, though I 100% thought they said "gently caress YOU WE ARE JADO GEDO" at the start.

I feel like the undercard matches are shorter than usual which is great since it doesn't feel like you're just wading until the main matches start. This show has had a good flow so far.

I picked him but I dunno. Every time I have to pick him for a win... it just feels wrong.

I've never liked him but he's been around so long that I want him to have some kind of crazy coming out party.

But what's the deal with the big green stick? It looks dumber than I even remember it looking before. Is it just a curtain rod?

Those last two matches were effing insane. I thought Ibushi/ZSJ was going to be match of the night when it was over - for whatever reason I didn't expect Naito/Omega to go as hard as they did. But gently caress, that match was intense. The last ten minutes or so were just ridiculous and I was shouting at my TV a whole lot. Those two piledrivers from Omega were sickening. I was really pulling for Naito at the end there, but I could see him winning the tournament and challenging at WK with this loss as backdrop.

The only match I'm really interested in on the 16th is Tanahashi/White (A Block is kind of a bummer). I love Suzuki but don't have any feelings one way or the other for Makabe - he's always just kind of been there for me. B Block on the 19th looks great, though - Juice/Kota, Goto/Omega and Naito/Ishii will all be good to great and god drat do I want to see YTR somehow tap out ZSJ. SANADA/Tama should also be good and I just want to see SANADA win all of the things.

When are they gonna stop pussyfooting around and put Jado & Gedo in a tag match?

Also I've been wondering if the Chaos stuff will lead to a new face faction. Yoh and Okada are obviously not into Jay's poo poo. Maybe they can form a new balloon-based group.

Decently fun show. YOSHI is stinky but I feel like this is the most emotion I've seen from him before? Scary powerbomb botch, though.

I'm v much invested in YTR showing himself as a good wrestler and I really, really want him to tap ZSJ out in their match.

Main event was great and Jay taking down all the top names is fantastic. Way too many god drat ref bumps/distraction spots tonight, though.

Caught up on the shows and god drat, I'm now a Hangman Page believer after his match with Okada. I really wanted him to pull out the win there.

YTR/Ibushi was amazing as was SANADA/ZSJ. I like how SANADA had an answer and counter for everything Sabre threw at him and how frustrated Sabre got because of it. Love that B Block!

Oh, I also love how rightfully terrified White is of Suzuki. Think I'm going to have to wake up at 4:30am to watch tomorrow's show live.

Firing Squad is very boring and I've never seen the appeal of Fale in general. I want to like Tama and I have in tag matches in the past but he hasn't done anything for me in the tournament so far.
