On one hand, I feel like he severely underrated Omega/White but then I listened to his review and I can get it. He didn't feel White was ready for a spot that big despite admitting he has a lot of potential. I'll give it 6 more months before everyone starts bandwagoning him.

4.5 For Tanahashi and Suzuki sounds about right. IMO the best match out of all the wrestling shows this past weekend.

yeah I said the same thing on the new beginning thread, Jay White push is too sudden and he wasn't ready for it, but it doesn't detract me from the actual match.

I wonder what he rated the post-match because that was more stars in the universe and the universe is infinite.

Sounds about right. I rated the White match a bit higher but I totally understand why he rated it that way.



All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

I can agree with most of those ratings but I think Bucks/RPG3K deserve more praise. That was one of the best tag team matches I've seen in a long time.

I agree with the ratings for both main events. I can also understand Dave's thinking with his criticism to Omega vs White.
