The 4/22 NJPW show was okay. Totally skippable, as it just builds the people you'd expect.

Ishii had better chemistry with Fale than Okada did that night, which was interesting. But Ishii is a master of THE STRUGGLE.

I still don't *get* Yoshi-Hashi. His offense feels all over the place and as painful as that arm hold would be, he never makes it feel like he's doing it effectively.

This was my first real time noticing this Naito guy. He kicked the fucking IC title from the entrance way all the way to the ring :lmao

Incredible scenes.
The best and coolest wrestler on the planet today.

just watched the lastest road to..
These four on four five on five etc can eventually bore you to death but when Minoru is involved they become so much more and credit to Goto he also added to a great bout.Credit to Trent Bareeta also, the guy is putting in some great work and performances lately, but still not sold on osprey as a serious contender for titles in Japan
Glad S Gun won against the shit Jado team but how it works out on a proper card is another story.

LIJ is always worth watching even if its against a bunch of rag bunch of wrestlers, as for tatsu, why bring him back to do what he did before he left.
Off to watch the main event but not expecting much with comedy omega and useless fale

So fuck May 9th, Masato Yoshino returned to the ring tonight at what may have been a DG Infinity taping & defyeated Punch Tominaga.



Ben-K is so great. :eek:kada
I've missed sooo much Dragon Gate in the last couple of months but I'm still managing to dip in when I can.

I did see Yamamura vs T Hawk. The kids singles efforts are becoming must see stuff.

What is the general consensus on Tama Tonga? From the three or four times I've seen him I've been fairly impressed by his ring work and I'd be interested to see how he does in a singles run. His face also seems to be a frightening combination of Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.

On the other hand, I know this is going to sound harsh, but I really dislike watching David Finlay. I'm not one to usually care about physiques but his belly makes me want to vomit unfortunately.

Love Tama, he's gradually improving and has the best f*cking stinger splash in the business :lol

I dislike David Finlay as well, he's just one of those wrestlers that don't do it for me. He looks weird, doesn't impress me in the ring and seems to be void of any physical charisma.

Ive enjoyed Tama Tonga (& Juice) this year and wouldn't mind seeing Tama beat Goto for the NEVER title. I love his moveset and great comparison of Rollins & Reigns as he does have Rollins athleticism and Reigns strength. Wouldnt mind him getting an Anderson run in this years G1.

Oh yeah. Yamamura is gonna be huge in DG in a few years.

He's also gonna face Jimmy Kagetora for the Brave Gate at DoA this year & I see that being a big star making match for him, win or lose.

I don't really remember anyone saying that they like him. To me he looks all over the place and he is one of few people in NJPW whose gimmick I don't understand at all.

Also, Okada really selling Fale as this big monster. In before Fale wins it. And was Ishii legit pissed at the end?

Edit: I really like Suzuki, but his entire stable can go fuck itself with their same shit every match.

23/4

Bullet club pushed hard again and Ishii bloodied added to the heat.
Sad that Archer is out, and Davey smith is missing as Suzuki gun are all jobbers with the exception of Minoru, and NJPW can take the blame for that with some of the booking.
