I just read he's having surgery so there's that. (Spoiler-free thread, no?)

Watched my first show in over a month. Laughter7 tag, both tag title matches, all four stipulated singles matches, and yes, even the opener, are all decent to great and I would call this the best overall show in many a year.

Top Matches:
1. Tanahashi/Suzuki - I read someone say Melzter's giving this five so we'll be hearing about it for a while if that's true. I don't think it was thaaat good but that was a career performance for MiSu, no doubt.
2. Laughter7 vs NJPW - Vintage NJPW! <3
3. MITB Case Match - tighter than the G1 match without the same level ending, though not to say this wasn't great as well.

- Hon. Mention to the Heavy Tag Title - Who the fuck thought this would be as good as it was?

- Junior matches too. Probably liked the IC match less than most from what I'm reading but Goto is just the worst IMO so there's some bias. NO LIMIT match was very good for what it was. Opener was tons of fun.

A massive success I think.

Pumped to watch this show. Haven't watched a full puro show in ages and this'll be my first in a while. It'll be interesting to see if it's as good a show as the last big NJ show with Tana/Okada II which is currently my show of the year.

Spoiler for Review with spoiles:

Full review:

Opener: Really good way to open the show. crowd was hot, the heels were great and the end was a big surprise for me. I was glad to see Strong Man too, he's the perfect guy for those matches.

IWGP Jr. HEAVYWEIGHT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: Romero and Koslov are awesome and even better than NRC. They are so entertaining. KUSHIDA and Shelley worked well too. The match itself was great, really good spots, fast-paced action, etc etc. Exactly what I expected from these great wrestlers.

IWGP Jr. HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Wasn't your typical balls to the wall crazy action Ibushi matches, this was more like Devitt vs Ki from Dontaku. Really loved this match but i'm not a fan of the booking. Why they t belt from Low Ki if he won this again one month later? eh, whatever. Really happy to see Devitt back, looking forawrd to his future match with Ki.

IWGP TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH: Good match, nothing much to say, the crowd was on fire. I was shocked that Smith and Archer won. Smith really fit great in Japan.

Tetsuya Naito vs Yujiro Takahashi - More an angle than a match.

Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue vs Kazushi Sakuraba & Katsuyori Shibata - Awesome crowd.

TOKYO DOME IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CONTENDERSHIP MATCH: An amazing finishing stretch and awesome match in general, Okada is my wrestler of the year right now, it's amazing that he's only 24.

IWGP INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Like someone said somewhere here, usual from this two. Wonder what will be next for Goto, i think that Anderson will be the next challenger for Nakamura.

IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Incredible match, don't have too much to say, just watch that. Didn't had too much (i don't think even six-seven) pindalls and they didn't went too crazy, just an excellent match with the a simple story. One of if not THE best matches of the year.

Fit Finlay vs. AKIRA (WNC, Starting Over)

Another good gem from Finlay, this was really nice. The same pace was already seen in the TAJIRI match, but this is where AKIRA performed very well, he was a real sympathetic good guy, and he was pacing his offense really good. The work was really fine, with crisp mat workovers and counters, and the finishing stretch was very simple and realistic. One head dropping move and BANG - lights out! Not only it makes stuff more realistic, but also makes all the previous work mean much more.
Rating: ***3/4

G1 Day 2 show rocked and Naito/Okada II totally delivered. Kojima/Yujiro and Archer/Rush were both good bottom of the card type matches and served their purpose. Nagata/Yano was tons of fun and everything you'd want from a G1 match between them. Anderson/MiSu was very good. I actually watched Benjamin/Marufuji so I think that warrants me staying on this an extra 5 years than I'm mean too. If I was ever gonna watch these 2 in a singles match though it'd have to be on a G1 show. It wasn't good but it didn't make me regret watching it because it was short, it was New Japan, it was a hot crowd and the finish was actually very good thanks to Marufuji taking the best bump off Shelton's leapfrog slam spot off the top rope and the crowd being into the finish. Makabe/MVP was a good Makabe heavy style match. Goto/Nakamura was very good. Naito/Okada II was magnificent. I'll talk about it more in the MOTYC Thread where it belongs. Isn't on the level of their title match but you're an idiot if you expect that from Day 2 of G1. It really wasn't as far away from that quality of match as you'd think though. ONE DOWN, FOUR TO GO.

G1 8/7:
Skipped the second half of Benjamin/Yujiro. Rush/Naito, Anderson/Kojima, Archer/Okada and MVP/Nakamura were all good. Tenzan/Goto was ok. Suzuki/Marufuji was actually very good. Tanahashi/Yano was great.

G1 8/8:
Marufuji/Anderson was decent. Yano/Yujiro was fun thanks to Yano. Skipped Tenzan/Rush about 4 minutes in. Bad! Archer/Goto was decent. Naito/MVP was very good. Kojima/Nagata was very good. Nakamura/Makabe was disappointing. Second half of the match wasn't all that good. Tanahashi/Suzuki was pretty poor. Dead crowd didn't help but a better crowd would have probably only made it decent.

G1 8/11:
Nakamura/Rush was decent. Yano/Kojima was very good. Suzuki/Benjamin was very good. New Japan's booked Benjamin perfectly. Short matches and just let him run through his signature stuff which gets a big pop. Marufuji/Yujiro was terrible. Naito/Tenzan was ok but too long. Okada/MVP and Makabe/Goto were both good. Tanahashi/Nagata was good but suffered by being a bit too formulaic and not special enough.

10/8:
Opener was tons of fun. Great to see Nakanishi back but even better to see STRONG MAN back. God I need more Strong Man in New Japan. He's way too much fun. Nakanishi looked like a guy who's been out for over a year. Really good opener and booked perfectly. Jr. Tag was surprisingly fun and very good. KUSHIDA does an awesome impression of Sabin working with Shelley. Crazy chemistry with their double teams for the time they've been together. I love how insistent KUSHIDA is pointing to his imaginary watch to get the team name over. So glad as well that Davey was Davey and Koslov got his shot with New Japan. Him and Romero are super fun. Ibushi/Ki was very good too. Finish hurt it though. Liked the Jr. tag more. Tag Titles match was ok. Least enjoyable match on the show. Glad Archer has a major title though. He's improved so much like everyone who tours with New Japan has. Yujiro/Naito was a neat angle to get Yujiro over and set the next title match up. Shame it's Yujiro though but this worked really well. Laughter7 tag was fun. Laughter7 is an amazing name for them two btw. Somehow tops Forever Hooligans. Thought it was too competitive and Laughter7 didn't kill Inoue for long enough but it was fun. Can't fucking wait for them to starting facing the big guns in tags and all shit to blow up. Makabe/Nagata tag at WK would be bossy. Okada/Anderson was great. Nakamura/Goto I wasn't that into but it was good. G1 match was better. Main event was magnificent. Talked about it in detail in the MOTYC Thread.

6/16 show is better and I'm happy saying it's better by a comfortable margin. Of course though Meltzer didn't call that show of the year so everyone doesn't jump all over it like they have with this.

Yeah that's still my show of the year, really doubt it'll be topped tbh. Four matches in the **** or higher range, brilliant show.
