It's not a work. Ref is trained, but doesn't help much when it's a guy the size of Sha slamming you out of frustration and not giving you enough scope to control your bump. Sha, Bodom and Quildan are all in the wrong.

You can keep the demon Balor. Kishin Liger takes the whole demon alter ego thing to another murderous level. It feels special and significant. 

Best thing to happen in NJPW for a long time.

Kishin Liger has long been one of my favourite things in wrestling, because I love a good powerful image, and some of the photos of that first reveal were incredible. It played into the MUTA "demonic alter-ego" persona better than anyone ever has, and that it's been used so sparingly since, rather than him busting it out for every big show, just makes it so powerful.

That he's completely bald with it now just makes it look even more sinister, and creates a stronger distinction between Kishin and the Liger we're more familiar with. I don't know if the facepaint being smeared and smudged was a result of him wearing the mask over it and working up a sweat, or a conscious design choice, but it also made it all seem so much creepier and more dangerous than if it had all been perfectly smooth, well applied and flawless.

The commentary for the ending of White/Naito was great putting over the fact people were storming out after Naito lost the gold and Gambino being happy about it, good post match promo and comments from White too, he’s the best heel in the business for me.

King Of Pro Wrestling is gonna be must watch with what they’ve already announced plus a possible Kishin Liger/Suzuki Death Match

You sure about this statement?

He’s a great heel and no one gets booed in New Japan like Jay White does. 

Besides it’s just my opinion.

I saw him for the first time at the UK show. He wasn't awful, but I didn't think he was all that great, and I was shocked to find out he'd been IWGP champ. Belongs nowhere near that belt.

Yeah, he didn't impress at the London show. Granted he was in a tag, but even so he certainly wasn't standing out. KENTA was a much better heel on the show and he didn't know left from right for half his match.
