The card looks pretty solid. Can't wait to see Okada-Styles in front of more than 15000(?) people!

if tna were sold, that should be a high priority for their new owner to fix their working agreement with new japan. both companies are similar in the fact that they have a stale main event scene. if they were to swap a few top guys to freshen things up it could do both some good.
TNA's relationship with New Japan also produced the worst Wrestle Kingdom in history. Let's all try and forget RVD vs Yano and the infamous debacle of Jeff Hardy vs Tetsuya Naito

I will never forget the legendary RVD/Yano feud that brought us YTR.

I think it depends on how he's positioned and most importantly if he can put on great matches. I don't think his time in TNA means anything to Japanese wrestling fans. TNA's international presence is greatly exaggerated.

The rest of the show delivered, though. Definitely not the worst Dome show.

I see him and this is just my opinion very, very much like Okada. That left of field type talent that is very good in the ring.

In any case , Styles wins the title where guys like Goto, Machine Gun, Devitt, SUzuki, etc. haven't is very interesting to me and as I said above, NJ must really rate Styles.

The match didn't really seem to click for me, like their chemistry was off or because it was full of the Bullet Club stuff that had hampered Devitt's matches last year.

Congrats to Styles and I think with NJ going to iPPV this is quite a smart business move as they may get a heap more buys with (that's if the U.S. Can purchase it I'm in Australia so I'm unsure) Styles as champion.
MiSu should of won the damn title at that KoPW 2012 event against Tanahashi, I still curse that match to hell on the daily.

Anyways, I'm shocked that Okada dropped the title in that fashion. On the other hand it still makes him look like a G cause it took an army to dethrone him. Interested to see where it's going.

Oh yeah, shout out to Bruce Tharpe's choice of upper body wear.

Suzuki is over enough that he doesn't need the belt. What I mean by that is that he is good at putting people over and looking good at the same time.
