And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

My biggest issue with Okada right now is they spent 6 years building him as strongly as you possibly could right from his debut, and now he doesn't know how to do anything that isn't related to the IWGP title. From his first win in 2012 to when he lost the belt to Kenny in 2018, there were only 10 IWGP championship matches that didn't involve him, and 6 of them were from the Tanahashi reign where he won it back at Dominion 2012. Any time he would lose the belt, he'd usually have a stopgap feud or two or slum it in the multimans for a tour before getting back on the title hunt, or win the G1/NJC and get another shot. After Kenny beat him he went crazy, and that was great, but his weird dismissiveness about the IC title this time just kind of makes him feel like a sore loser who doesn't want his toy back until Naito's stinky white belt is gone. Maybe the whole point is he's supposed to be acting childish with no belt to fight for but it doesn't feel anywhere near as intentional as the balloon stuff last time.

In one of the promos he said he doesn’t want to get involved in internal LIJ drama or something to that effect.

Well, too busy screaming about how infuriating the booking of the company has been since Akiyama left.

For the G1 shows this year are they doing opening tag matches as well or just single matches?

They’re limiting the amount of people on shows and separating the two blocks due to DA VARUS. There will be a Young Lions match plus block matches on each card. Is what it looks like.
