If you need to catch up before watching the main event, RealNeatPuro has made a great in depth video as always.

Getting up early to watch a PPV is a great change of pace to the trying to survive the late night of a WWE event.

Yeah it's great having a live event in the morning for a chance. Always laugh at the Americans moaning that they have to stay up till the early morning to watch it all live. Boo hoo.

Was worried Jericho would maybe phone it in a bit with this match. NOPE.

Omega's selling of the Codebreaker is so much better than anyone in WWE. Sells it like an RKO return than just bending down and falling backwards like everyone else.

Great PPV. Time flew compared to a WWE show.

So much salt about Naito not winning the belt. While it would have been nice, it wasn't necessary and I'm now MORE interested where he goes from here.

Agreed.

In no way am I expecting these guys to perform at that level on a nightly basis but goes to show bad the WWE style of wrestling is excluding NXT obviously.

What a match Y2J and Omega. Will need to watch rest of PPV tonight, know loads of the big NJPw names but never watched their matches so looking forward to it.

Confused with rules in Y2J match though, Jericho going nuts for ref trying a rope break the Walls then gets rope break after One Winged Angel. Countouts too, thought there was none and no rope breaks in no dq?

The four-way with Scurll, Ospreay, KUSHIDA and Takahashi was fantastic. That and the Omega v Jericho match were my favourites. Main event was really good but I thought last year's with Okada vs Omega was much better.

Looks like Jericho is hanging around and feuding with Naito now.

No DQ matches have always confused me. Surely no DQ means just that, you can’t be disqualified and the ref’s only role is deciding the fall be it by pin, submission or knockout but there are always rope breaks and corner counts etc.

I think it made more sense this way than what generally happens in a no DQ - it's not "no rules at all" after all. The way I saw it, the ref can give a five count if some one gets the rope in a submission, but there's not much he can do if they don't break the hold. Again, a rope break to stop a pin has nothing to do with disqualifications I guess.

I really hope Suzuki takes the belt off Tana and he has at least a few months off. It's what both guys deserve.
