Was hoping to avoid spoilers but sadly didn't. Will still watch it later though, people are calling it the best out of their 4 matches, which is absolutely insane

The match must have gone on for an hour +, it felt like it was on for 15 minutes.

Shame you got it spoiled but don’t let that spoil your enjoyment. And watch Jericho/Naito too!

I think their other matches may be technically slightly better from a pure in-ring perspective, that was probably the greatest 70 minutes-ish of pro-wrestling ever. Incredible.

I'm going to Tokyo for the G1 Finals and I could not be more hyped for it right now.

I still think Naito should've won at Wrestle Kingdom, but then again if he did we probably wouldn't have this awesome feud with Jericho.

EDIT: Six out of eight of the New Japan championships are held by foreigners now which is pretty surprising.

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.
