Other notes from 12/24 w/o starz...
Tiger Mask, Ryusuke Taguchi & KUSHIDA vs. Rocky Romero, Jado & Gedo - 7 mins to do their shticks. not the best NJPW 6 man.
Hideo Saito vs. Takashi Iizuka - good story telling in this match. very well booked ending. way above average match for these two.
Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs. Karl Anderson - slightly above average match. I'd like to see Anderson break into singles action more. He'd be the perfect guy to hold the I-C belt imo.
Satoshi Kojima vs. Giant Bernard - Borderline great match. First match I've enjoyed of Bernards and that counts tag matches.
Wataru Inoue vs. Shinsuke Nakamura - not only did Inoue walk out of this one he fucked Nakamura up with one shot. better than expected match.
Hirooki Goto vs. Yujiro Takahashi - i'm a huge Y. Taka mark so i really enjoyed this. Taka looked better than usual in a singles match but still has some polishing to do but he's only 21 so no doubt he'll turn into something great. More good (unpredictable) booking here.
Yuji Nagata vs. Toru Yano - despite hating yano's character i found this match good but it has nagata so how can you not?
Hiroshi Tanahashi & Togi Makabe vs. Minoru Suzuki & Yoshihiro Takayama - 15 minutes of watching a MiSu/Takayama tag
. good match but nothing special really. obviously advanced more storyline for WK.
