Where's the NJPW crew? You been keeping up with the G1? Because Omega/Ishii and Naito/Ibushi from today were both incredible, especially the former. They beat the absolute gooseberry fool out of eachother.

B Block is crushing it this year in general. Shows that NJPW have the belts on the right people I guess. Ishii is an absolute beast this year and it'll be great to see him get a title match now.

I think we're heading for an Ibushi - Tanahashi final. In his current state, I reckon Okada will be beaten by Tanahashi on the final block night. Saying that, if there's one draw this year, it'll be Omega - Ibushi, which would put Omega through to the final.

Either way, it's more unpredictable than ever, even at this stage.

I am quietly optimistic that I may be able to get a ticket to the B Block Final. If I can, seeing Omega/Ibushi live, lawd...

At the current rate you're going to witness DEATH.

HYPPPPPPEEEEEEE

The G1 Final is obviously sold out, but from looking online I think remaining tickets for B Block Final have to be bought in Japan (unless you want to pay ridiculous prices). Fingers crossed!

Apparently Takahashi is out for at least 8-12 months :(

Slammiversary is listed on Showcase/Fight Network tonight from 10pm. My TV guide doesn’t say the year however.

EDIT: it was the 2016 version (same day as Orlando club shooting).

Bit bizarre seeing Joe Hendry on WOS at the weekend. Needs Simon Miller on there next.

Can't see WoS getting renewed at this rate. Number of viewers were down last week and they'll be well down this week with the premier league returning. It's a shame Viper turned down the Mae Young Classic for this.

Aleister Black has a groin injury or something so thankfully he's off Takeover next week and the main event is Gargano vs Ciampa in a last man standing match :toot:

I'm gutted. I love Black, and he was an interesting element to the Gargano / Ciampa feud. How many times have we seen them face each other now? Sure, they've all been great matches, but there's only so much they can do that they haven't done before.

I think we're looking at multiple holds between Ciampa and Gargano. I reckon Black will be put on the main roster.

Takeover should be a treat.

Did you manage to get one? It looked like there were plenty of seats in the arena tonight, should be some tomorrow too I guess.

If Ciampa wins this one I'm not arsed about that feud any more. Move on.

IMPACT WRESTLING could certainly do with his help on the basis of their ratings last night in the US: 168,000.

Sold out from what I could see. :(

I only noticed there were still tickets for the A Block Final about 30 minutes before it started. Would never have made it. Ah well.
