NJPW World

It’s just unbelievable that in a night where bret hart was legit attacked, they didn’t pull the cass and enzo angle to be on a tv taping as well. Just ate into everyone’s attention ahead of zsj with the biggest win of his life against tannahashi. Just unforgivable

Enzo?! Jesus Christ. As if it wasn't already blindingly obvious that New Japan needed to fuck off ROH for AEW. Embarrassing.

The NJPW stuff delivered as expected. The ROH stuff generally brought the show quality down unfortunately. Looking forward to going to NJPW in London. They can exist outside of Japan without ROH easily these days.

Only good thing about the ROH output was Mayu Iwatani getting to wrestle in front of a big crowd. Shame it was probably in the most disappointing match I've seen her in, and the crowd struggled to give a fuck until the end.

I definitely felt no need to watch WOH afterwards. I'll just stick to Stardom since I at least can't understand the creepy guys at those shows.

I thought the show was very good, the NJPW output was definitely better than the ROH but it was always going to be to be honest. The Enzo and Cass angle certainly got people taking with them not showing it on camera and everything. 

The three way ladder match, Naito/Ibushi and Okada/White were all great and the IWGP Juniors triple threat and Ospreay/Cobb were really good additions to the undercard.

I enjoyed the show I'm an roh fan boy but I don't agree with the signing of the Beautiful Peopleï»żï»żï»ż or by the looks of it Enzo and Cass smells of desperation for main stream press just trying to get hits on twitter or tmz... But the good points of the show the great mĂșta amazing i popped when he came out and I wanted Kenny to win the rumble the opener was very good as was the tag title match was have to say tama Tonga is the man and that pco power bomb bump was insane... I loved the Jr title match glad dragon Lee won all in all new japan out shined roh by far but it good show it will be worth a rewatch it a few months time with fresh eyes

Hoping for a big showing from Shingo, he has looked great since his debut and he (and the division as a whole) could definitely benefit from a run at the title.

I could see an ELP/Shingo final.

Depending on what blocks they are announced in of course.

Depending on his current contract situation I'd give good odds on Bandido getting signed off a good showing.
