on a related note, i'm looking forward to watching elgin/white/page have to figure out how to work a match with suzuki when he will no doubt refuse to take most of their big power moves and dangerous suplexes

It's a real show of my annoyance with Juice's hair that I can't even bring myself to care about watching his match with Ibushi. I'm sure it was probably good, but skip.

White/Elgin is in the mix after this show. Tana/Fale had good storytelling. Still have the main event to go.

I have nothing to say except that i've finally caught up on the last two months of wrestling. Which is why i haven't been in this thread in that long because i can't handle spoilers. Man falling behind can really suck if you're OCD about it....wait hold on, don't spoil the UK tournament, i'm only halfway through the first show.

'Just remember, if Ibushi is ever handcuffed by the authorities, he can always dropkick them'

I'm 100% here for Kevin Kelly, at this point.

Also: let's go Ibushi, dropkick those class traitors.

Finally catching up on G1 and night 2 really lives up to the hype. Thoroughly enjoyed the Sanada vs Goto match aside from the others that have been discussed.

Weird that today's show is headlined by the two people I'm least interested in in the B block (I know people love Iishi but he comes off as 'generic tough Japanese man' to me and I just haven't ever gotten into him)

pfft, all the other tough japanese guys have necks and don't do awesome kick out at 1 spots. nothing generic about the stone pitbull

i feel like this will apply for all the B block matches for the rest of the tournament: all the matches were great except for Tama's match and I suppose if you don't like Yano you can skip his match. Ishii/Goto the pick of the night.

it could be because ZSJ is like a top 5 wrestler in the world, but SANADA's two matches against ZSJ this year have been far and away his most interesting and best singles matches to me and I'd love it if he incorporated some of the things he did in this match in his other singles matches. really, the paradise lock is about the only thing I find myself enjoying about SANADA.

though the only way i can see something from today's show ending up on the list is if suzuki just stretches white for five minutes and then pins him with the gotch

I'm supposed to go see Janela vs Starr in a no-rope barbed wire match next weekend. Might be too squeamish for that.

guessing this is gonna be the SS card:

Brock (c) vs Reigns
Ziggler (c) vs Rollins vs McIntyre
Braun vs KO
Lashley vs Elias
Balor vs Baron Corbin
B-Team (c) vs Deleter of Worlds vs AoP
Alexa (c) vs Ronda
Sasha vs Bailey

Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe
Nakamura (c) vs Randy Orton vs Almas vs Rusev
Daniel Bryan vs Miz
BB (c) vs The Bar
New Day vs Sanity
Carmella (c) vs Becky Lynch vs Askua


I'd love to see Brock/Braun/Reigns/Lashley four-way or a full-blown AJ/Bryan match. I'd also love to see a Samoa Joe/Almas feud but that's another story

Hits keep coming for Joey Janela's Lost in New York - now with special musical guest Wheatus

Also: NXT Main Event this week was excellent. Very good match, really interesting finish/direction.
