He's great for sure, but I would still pay to see Devitt or Ibushi over any current luchador for sure!! They can do it all.

Review with spoilers:

Spoiler for Review with spoilers:

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.

Default NJPW Power Struggle iPPV

Overall thoughts: This wasn't a PPV, it was a house show. Most of the matches didn't get enough time and the work was noticeably down from the first PPV. I got the feeling that the workers stepped it up for the first PPV because it was special but after that, they figured there was no reason to go all out here. Nothing was bad but nothing was what it should have been. Some of it was due to the match-ups and some of it was due to time and alot of it was due to little heat from the crowd. Everyone underachieved here and the most interesting people on the show (Forever Hooliganz) may not even be around due to other bookings. I don't recommend this one and it was not even as close to as good as the first one.

I reviewed the NJPW Power Struggle iPPV here with pics/gifs/quotes:

I'm just sitting down to watch NJPW Power Struggle now. I'm excited. Nothing this year has been better or more entertaining for me than New Japan. The top of their cards this whole year have been great. I'm a mark.

NJPW Power Struggle 2012 iPPV Review

Rocky Romero & Alex Kozlov © vs KUSHIDA & Alex Shelley - IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Title Match
Felt quite different your typical tag match. They kicked off the match with the heels attacking the faces which kick-started the face-in-peril segment. It was decent until the match abruptly ended.
★¾

Jado, Takashi Iizuka, Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano & YOSHI-HASHI vs Captain New Japan, Jushin Thunder Liger, Manabu Nakanishi, Negro Casas & Tiger Mask
Is it me or are these CHAOS brawls getting a lot better recently? Because I've just recently started to get into them. Just over-the-top fun. Liger is still one of the most expressive men in pro-wrestler. He can exhume so much emotion with his great body language alone and you can't even see the man's face! This is all evident in the spot where Liger stomps his own team-mate, trying to will him on. Super fun ten man tag match.
★★★

Minoru Suzuki & Taichi vs Ryusuke Taguchi & Yuji Nagata
Any Suzuki-Gun match is automatically better than average because of 'dem ANTICS~! The whole story of this match is that MiSu & co are dominating Taguchi by using illegal tactics and stop him from reaching Nagata for the tag. It's a simple narrative executed very well. Hell, even Taguchi was okay in this. He has a great slap exchange with MiSu. Things get even better when Nagata finally gets in. He's a fresh man so he's very intense and comes off as highly-charismatic during the finishing stretch. MiSu and Nagata even throw in some fun callback spots from their previous encounters too. These men can do no wrong together.
★★★¼

Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Lance Archer © vs Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima - IWGP Tag Team Title Match
Decent yet formulaic match you'd expect out TenKoji. At least this had an enjoyable finishing stretch.
★★½

Low Ki © vs. Prince Devitt - IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title Match
These guys have awesome chemistry together. Those who loved their match back in May won't be disappointed here. It's at a much quicker speed and features many comeback spots relating to their last match. Ki's schtick really entertains me, and I'm no fan of Devitt but he really did well here. It goes a bit over-the-top at the end, but with the great brawling and a great ending that leaves the door open to another rematch, I'm not complaining.
★★★★

Katsuyori Shibata & Kazushi Sakuraba vs Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue
Laughter7 once again entertain me by simply beating the shit out of someone. My main gripe here was that Inoue got too much offense in and should of just been a whipping boy like in their last match. They keep away from doing too many Makabe/Laughter7 interactions YET AGAIN further hyping me up to see a singles match.
★★★¼

Kazuchika Okada © vs Hirooki Goto - IWGP Heavyweight Title #1 Contendership Match
Just last month in the last NJPW iPPV review, I shat on Goto for being too dry and uncharismatic and his performance here just goes against everything I said. He played the spunky challenger very well here and Okada is Okada. One thing that is starting to bug me during Okada's matches are how some of the reversals in the finishing stretch were getting a bit cutesy for my liking and are bordering just above indy-wank level but other than that this is a good match.
★★★¼

Shinsuke Nakamura © vs Karl Anderson - IWGP Intercontinental Title Match
Interesting to see Nakamura work as a face, especially when he's trying to go for his finisher. Other than that, I found this to drag and I don't see why these guys needed to bust out their entire moveset for a match like this. Save it for the big matches, guys.
★★½

Hiroshi Tanahashi © vs Yujiro Takahashi - IWGP Heavyweight Title Match
Starts of very similar to the first Tanahashi vs Okada match in that Tana dominates but Takahashi eventually takes control after a series of Tanahashi's mistakes. Takahashi was great in this' doing little things like biting and hair pulling put him over as a menacing little shit. The match takes a big drop in quality when it becomes clear that this is going your typical Tanahashi formulaic performance. You can see it a mile away and it stops you from fully getting sucked into to the near-falls, minus when Takahashi hit his finisher. Throwaway defense.
★★★

Overall:
A step down in quality from their last show, but still a highly consisted event.

Yuji Nagata vs. KENTA (NOAH, Global League 2012 - Day 8)

Not a good match, tbh. Really solid, but not good. Which is disappointing, since this is their first 1-on-1 meeting. What I liked is the story had a clear direction of Nagata owning KENTA permanently, showing his craftiness and experience over KENTA's faux heavyweight schtick. That was good. Plus, the strikes and blows were really stiff, they were beating each other silly. But, with all that being said, the match somehow lacked a depth and charm. No "charisma", if that makes any sense. Not enough for the *** teritory.
Rating: **3/4
