Christ. Ishii is on a mission to be the G1 MVP and GOAT at this rate. I thought Ishii/Cobb was early contender for match of the tournament then he went in 2 days later and took Jay White to the match of his life.

Tournament is delivering in ring so far and the stories are starting to develop

if Ospreay cant continue then Harold needs to give us Suzuki in the A block.

He's been like that for the past 7 or so G1 tournaments, win or lose. 2013 was probably his most insane year, overall.

Ishii needs to win the block one of these years, just as a thank you from the office and a thank you to the fans for constantly supporting him.

Personally, I fucking love Ishii, and just like Ibushi, he should be a multiple time world champ at this point. I've got my hopes on them two being the G1 final this year (like I do every year for both of them) so I'm ready to have my heart broke again because that'll never happen.

When was the last time an underdog got into the final? Anderson in 2012? Was Omega considered an underdog when he won in 2016?

I just can’t get into ishii at all. I know I’m in the minority, but the stone pit bull no expressions style does nothing for me.

Moxley and Cobb did the slowest double clothesline on the ramp EVER! 

 

 

Haha that was woeful wasn't it? Proper "WWF Classics" on Sky Sports circa 2001 vibe.

Lads, this is why I said GOAT.

Official that Ospreay and Ibushi is going ahead. Lot of delicious matches spread across Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Ishii's everything Misawa was hyped to me as, with the added bonus that he doesn't look like he's in agony all the time.

It's in recent years that he's really started to shine to me. He's a stocky lil bastard, but you can see from his compression sleeve how much mass he's lost. So he's got the rep, but clearly time is getting on, but he's playing into it. It feels like he's getting rocked more in the strike-offs, then he has awesome rallies like that forearm spot with Cobb that shows he's rolling with it, getting smart. It's the kind of transformation I don't see in American wrestling, where in-ring character change doesn't seem to extend beyond new moves.

Who do RevPro book in tag teams nowadays, excluding the signed NJPW talent? Last time I watched/went, CCK still existed, they had access to Moustache Mountain etc. No idea who's left. Can only imagine it'll end up being Aussie Open

What else is confirmed  for that show? Announcements for it have been quiet from what I've seen.

I think I heard Ibushi, Okada, Naito & Tanahashi will appear. Any word on Jushin Liger? I paid for a ticket pretty much exclusively because I want to see Liger one last time.

They’ve announced Dan Maloney and MK McKinnan Vs Carlos Romo and A Kid as the first quarter final match.

Josh Bodom and Sha Samuels are the current Rev Pro Tag Champs so they’ll be in the tournament too

I’m sure Liger will be on the show as he’s trying to Wrestle in as many countries as possible before retiring, Ishii, all of LIJ and Suzuki will be announced soon probably as they’re over here wrestling with RevPro quite often also not forgetting Ospreay and a ZSJ title defence.

Royal Quest match ups will probably take shape during the G1 with champions defending against people they lost to in their blocks and maybe even a G1 briefcase defence.

Rev Pro need to keep as far away from this as possible. After the farcical booking of the MK show last year you would have thought NJPW would have avoided any connection with Rev Pro in the promotion of this show. Why use Rev Pro guys in an IWGP Tag Title Match when we could have an authentic NJPW vs NJPW match? I am keeping optimistic but they need to stop. If I want to see Rev Pro guys I will buy a ticket to one of their shows.

I don't mind a few rpw guys in matches but need to be out of title matches. I just can't think of an rpw team that could even convince me of them having a chance of winning. 

They need to have big names in singles matches, their mk show last year didn't have that, although the Altrincham show had a couple.
