Main event was great. But Scurll/Ospreay was definitely match of the night

Scurll v Ospreay was awesome. How is Ospreay not dead?

Also, the spot in the GL vs Cody/Page with the powerbomb into the german was awesome.

I think Kenny wins next Saturday but Cody caused enough damage where the Bucks, Kenny, Scurll leave as The Elite.

Or the BC turns on both Cody and Kenny and make Kota Ibushi their new leader. /Russo

English translation for the 2 main promos at the show. Pretty clearly setting up the 2 main matches for Dontaku next month. Naito/Suzuki and Okada/Tanahashi

Suzuki v Naito is happening at Hinokuni, not Dontaku. Hinokuni is basically just a big LIJ v Suzukigun show.

Highlights of PWG. For those going to any indy shows this week, you can put some faces to the names and see what all the hype is about!

Latest Observer has some interesting news about Kitamura

Katsuya Kitamura, 32, the 2017 Wrestling Observer Rookie of the Year and a wrestler considered the Japanese version of Brock Lesnar, may no longer be with the company.

Kitamura has been out of action for five weeks. His last match was on 3/4 in Tsukuba, teaming with Manabu Nakanishi, losing to Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano. He apparently suffered a concussion in that match and hasn’t wrestled since.

There are reports that he’s out of action with a concussion and his career is over. Those within the company have said that the concussion is a cover reason and it was another as yet undisclosed reason why he is not expected back.

Their servers couldn’t handle an NXT Weekly stream.

Here is the upcoming line-up. Personally the only captivating things in NJPW right now are Okada's title defenses, Ospreay's suicide attempts, and the implosion of the Bullet Club. There is a little bit of that mixed in below but a whole lot of "meh" as well. By the end of all this we should have a better idea of what Sakura Genesis will look like which personally I'm excited for this year as it was such a fun show last year. We also have the BoSJ to look forward to next month but no announcements have been made just yet.

Playing Yakuza 6, it's so bizarre seeing all the NJPW wrestlers as villains, lol. Like seeing Yano playing a gang member named Toru Yano is so weird.

Note to self: never yell out shit during a Suzuki promo. I won't even risk it from here in TN.
