I was surprised Shingo/Sho didn’t go on last due to their rivalry during their JR Tag Feud considering every moment they have in the ring together is genuinely a highlight, when I read the block announcement I thought the Block would be between those two, shame they’ve put them together on the first night of the tournament. 

Sho is one of their most popular wrestlers so I don’t see him staying with Roppongi 3K for much longer.

Sho's winning this next year isn't he?

3 nights in and Sho seems to be the guy whose stock looks to be going up most. He's not winning but they're doing their damnedest to make sure he looks good coming out the other end. Poor Yoh, do you think he looks at Yujiro and thinks, ”That's me in 5 years."?

Cheers, knew he was facing Starr last week but hadn’t seen the result

While I love many of his matches SHO needs to reign in the facial expressions. Every match has anger, fury and weird gurning. A tad off-putting. 

His match with Dragon Lee had ten minutes of forearms and ten minutes of selling.

Day 2 featured one of my big wrestle hates in ELP vs Bandido; no selling Canadian Destroyers. That shit should still be a finish. Also ELP killing Bandido's super finish sucked bad. Pointless.

So yeah, Day 2 was bleh.

Day 3 though...shit hot! Damn, how fucking good is A Block? SHO vs Dragon Lee and Titan vs Shingo are essential BOSJ viewing.

In case anyone's interested, RevPro opened pre-sale today for their show that's happening the night before Royal Quest. No idea whether they'd do anything consequential, but you'd have to imagine there'd be some NJPW talent on show. Noon on Monday for general sale.

They’ve been showing that vignette at New Japan shows for what feels like the past 2 months hyping the US title match against Juice Robinson at the BOSJ Final without the Mox reveal at the end.

Huge coup for them, he’s definitely beating Juice for the title, I just hope he also wrestled the likes of Okada, Ishii, White, Suzuki and more before he’s done as the US title has kinda been exclusive to the Gaijins and I don’t see him doing tours over there.

Whilst people are here for the Ambrose news, please have a look at this years on-going BOSJ, as it's currently the best non-G1 round robin that they've ever put on. Really, really fantastic stuff.

It’s a shame Ospreay is such a twat because he’s been putting on amazing performances in every match of this tournament.

Rocky Romero/El Phantasmo is definitely the highlight of this years BOSJ for me.
