Is there a download for the NJPW show available? I'd like to watch the two main events.

They’ve put a match of Kenny Omega’s on the network. It’s from Deep South Wrestling against..some guy. With this, and them promoting the new day V the elite in Street fighter, surely they’re going to throw a boat load of cash at him when his njpw contract is up!

It would have to be some mega money to lure him from New Japan. I can't see someone like Omega going to WWE where they will obviously handcuff him to their scripts when he can express himself to a far greater degree in New Japan. Also given recent events it's clear that New Japan see a future in him, he's probably on one of the sweetest contracts already.

So pleased we get a TakeOver tomorrow night. Sad that Mauro will be missing it though. The build up between Dream & Ricochet has been great, looking forward to that match.

It feels like forever since the last main roster PPV. I'm not sure I'm looking forward to it after how bad the last one was. Especially given one of the rumours of Ellsworth returning (Asuka losing to Carmella... :dread: ). The whole Rousey / Natalya thing feels overly obvious too.

The problem with doing these massive ppv events around the world in addition to the staple ppv line up is that they end up not feeling special and just like a glorified house show.

If they’re airing it for those in Melbourne at roughly the conventional PPV start time, it’d be around 11am here on a Saturday.

Dream vs Ricochet was insane! I expected it to be amazing, but that was a whole other level. I loved Dream telling Ricochet he belonged in a Bingo hall. They'll have trouble besting that the rest of the year, let alone for the remainder of the card. Gargano and Ciampa will certainly be the closest.

The tag match was ace too.

Can't believe Kairi Sane isn't competing tonight either. There's an embarrassment of riches on the bench.

Wow, that was great. Built and built to an unexpected crescendo. They were given a good 45 minutes too. It had time to breathe. Not the most consistent TakeOver, but the highs were phenomenal.

That Vic guy just doesn't have the energy or passion that Mauro exudes.

Tag match was awesome. Ricochet/Dream was brilliant! Dream wearing the prince Puma tights :lol: And Gargano/Ciampa was once again outstanding, with a great ending and the right man won.

Thought the main event was excellent.

Not too keen on the lead commentator. Even by WWE standards he was bland, but at least didn't take away from the show.

Big spoiler for tonight’s Money in the Bank (involving a women’s match):

James Ellsworth is backstage at Money in the Bank, being hidden on a bus, so he will be making some sort of appearance at tonight's PPV.

NXT proving once again where the WWE product should be. The fact I do not care at all for Nak/AJ says it all.

Already MITB is better than the last (main roster) PPV.
