Spoiler for full review:


Pre-Show:

Wataru Inoue, Captain New Japan & Tama Tonga vs. Jado, YOSHI-HASHI & Tomohiro Ishii - *1/2
Not good at all, Tonga's finisher really sucks, would love seeing future match between Ishii and Inoue.

Jushin Thunder Liger, Tiger Mask IV & Hiromu Takahashi vs. Ryusuke Taguchi, KUSHIDA> & BUSHI - **1/4
Very fun, I wish there will be a rematch and they will get more time. KUSHIDA vs Liger needs to happen at this year BOSJ. Takahashi was pretty good here.

Main-Show:

Manabu Nakanishi, MVP, Strongman & Akebono vs. Toru Yano, Takashi Iizuka, Yujiro Takahashi & Bob Sapp - **1/2
Your typical CHOAS match, glad Sapp and Akebono were here, they added a lot to the match and without them I'd skip it because I saw it too many times. Didn't knew MVP was in this match actually and IIRC he only did his "Ballin'" spot lol

NEVER Openweight Championship Match: Masato Tanaka vs. Shelton Benjamin - **1/4
What I exepcted this to be seriously.. both throwing big moves in short match but the crowd didn't cared about it at all which didn't helped it. It was ok I guess.

IWGP Tag Championship Match: “Killer Elite Squad” Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith, Jr. vs. “Sword & Guns” Hirooki Goto & Karl Anderson - ***
This match was great, enjoyed it a lot. Archer and Davey Boy working really well with guys in their size, this whole division has big potentiel and I wish that NJ will crete more teams. Anyway, the match was very good, Archer was great heel as usual and Anderson shined here, glad Goto took the pin.

Yuji Nagata vs. Minoru Suzuki - ****1/4
Holly shit, Suzuki's entrance was EPIC!!!! maybe my fave entrance ever. Suzuki rules. Probably I enjoyed the match more than others because I can watch them wrestle each other every day every night but it was very emotional and the crowd was super into it. Awesome.

IWGP Jr. Heavy Championship Triple Threat Match: Prince Devitt vs. Low Ki vs. Kota Ibushi - ***3/4
Holly fuck Low Ki as Hitman was badass. Low Ki is awesome, don't care what others has to say about him. This pic is just amazing - https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A_x52ulCAAAfXnD.jpg:medium. The match was exactly what I wanted it to be and the right guy pinned. Wonder what they are going to do with Low Ki now.

Togi Makabe vs. Katsuyori Shibata - ***3/4
It was an all-out war as I hoped, happy that the match was short. Shibata is actually great and I wish we will see more of him (future match with Tanahashi sounds good to me)

IWGP Intercontinental Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kazushi Sakuraba - ****1/2
I don't have too much to say about this match and Okada/Tanahashi because others said my exact thougts. This match was similar to Lesnear vs Cena but just shorter and even better in my eyes. Early MOTY for me.

IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match: Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada - ****1/4
Incredible match, was shocked when Okada kicked out from the Fly Flow, never saw someone kicking out from this. Well, I don't agree about the result but the match was superb.

Overall the iPPV was amazing and man, this is just the beginning for NJPW. BTW the crowd was fantastic!!! shocked by how alive they were compared to last year


EDIT: Missed TenKoji vs. Muta/Otani. **3/4 for me, fun match and the crowd was hot but went little longer than should've.

The idea of everyone loving a Kazushi Sakuraba match in 2013 is really fucking awesome. I haven;t seen much of him yet, but in 1996 UWFi he looked liked the kind of guy who could have an outstanding career had he not moved to shoots. Glad he's back in the graps.

I reviewed Wrestle Kingdom 7 with pics, gifs and even a few japanese quotes here:
Spoiler for Overall thoughts:
Part 1- http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013...-7-review.html
Part 2- http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013...-2-review.html

Good show but certainly not the greatest show ever and really not even NJPW's best iPPV. I don't even think it was my favorite Tokyo Dome show ever. There was a ton of decent to good matches here with the main event being the match of the night but there were also questionable booking decisions that harmed the show. Coming out of this, I don't see alot of intriguing matches for NJPW due to the Shibata/Okada losses. Have them win and I could come up with multiple interesting and fresh scenarios. If you like good wrestling, there is lots of it here and you won't be disappointed.

Some shots from the show:

Seriously? You come into the NO SPOILERS thread, after Seabs makes a thread saying no spoilers for a week outside of the appropriate thread, with not one but two links to generate hits for your fucking blog and spoil things?!

Maybe I should have gone home today. It appears I must see Nakamura vs Sakuraba right now. Before I do anything else.

Now I'm regretting being a lively individual. Dammit.
