Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov (c) vs. Alex Shelley & KUSHIDA - **3/4
Really glad that KUSHIDA and Shelley won, they're really exciting and even in short match they brought the best. The match was so short because Koslov was injured, if you saw the 4/11 show (i'm in the first half so far) you know that he injured his leg after bad superkick. I thought they'll do something similar to Bryan/Sheamus after the pre-match stuff but glad they didn't. Really appreciate that Koslov did wrestled and was a part of the match. Time Splitters vs Taichi and TAKA sounds awesome to me, hope it'll be happen at the 1/4 show.
Manabu Nakanishi, Jushin Thunder Liger, Tiger Mask, Negro Casas & Captain New Japan vs. Toru Yano, Takashi Iizuka, Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI & Jado - **1/2
Your typical 5 vs 5 match. Nothing bad, nothing special. Became better towards the end and with more time (and Strong-Man! why he wasn't there?) this could've been higher.
Yuji Nagata & Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Minoru Suzuki & Taichi - ***
It was an entrating match. Enjoyed seeing Suzuki kicking Taguchi's ass and Nagata was awesome as always. Shocking finish was Taichi pin Nagata
Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr. (c) vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima - ***1/4
Really similar to their last match, I think that now is the time to split TenKoji. I don't know why but Davey doesn't fit as well as I thought in NJ so far, Archer right now is the better man and he's carring the team. The divison right now is dead, hope NJPW will do something about it.
Low Ki (c) vs. Prince Devitt - ***1/2
This match was awesome. Lots of unperdictable countrs and without the bad finish it could easily be in the 4* territory. Low Ki did some great stuff there, he's really underrated this year, I don't why there's hate on him. Devitt didn't need the win in my opinion and Ki just won the belt so I don't the result...
Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue vs. Kazushi Sakuraba & Katsuyori Shibata - N/R
Hm, it was only 4-5 mins so I don't really know how to rate this.
Kazuchika Okada vs. Hirooki Goto - ***3/4
This was exactly what you'd exepct from these two. Just another awesome match from Okada and strong showing frm Goto. Loved everything here.
Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Karl Anderson - ***1/4
Great match but I felt like something was missing. The TKO on the barricade was sick.
Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) vs. Yujiro Takahashi - ***3/4
First of all, this was much better than I thought it would. Takahasi surprised me here and he looked much better than usual. Tanahasi was Tanahasi and he looked like millon bucks as always. The match was great, they did everything by the book and did felt that long but it's just not on the same level with Tana/Okada I & II, Goto/Okada or Suzuki/Tana.
Overall really good show, of course not as good as Dominion or KOPW but still great.
