    Current New Japan

    Ospreay cleared for tomorrow.

    Ishii unsurprisingly with match of the night again. But hat's off to Jay. Not only is he mechanically excellent but he heels it up so well against tough guys like Ishii. Yano-Shingo was a lot of fun and pretty much what you would want out of a Yano match. Mox-Cobb wasn't great but I really dug Mox's psychology. Went after the shoulder to take away Cobb's power, stomped on his foot to escape the suplex on the apron, hit him with the knee to set up the rope-assisted DDT because he couldn't lift him. Juice-Goto was solid but definitely the worst of their matches together. Taichi-Naito was a lot better than their New Beginning match and even if the overbooking got to be a bit much, it was at least saved for the end and the execution was much better.

    Ospreay has a neck injury and will miss the 15th show. Won't have to forfeit any matches yet and there's a chance he's cleared for the 18th as the injury isn't nerve or bone damage.

    Riho did a commendable job in that match given the circumstances. Tons of potential.

    Agreed. I like Page, he's got a good look, and he has his moments in the ring. But he still doesn't have the star power I think would be necessary for an inaugural champion. I personally would've gone with Moxley but considering where we are, Jericho is still a good pick due to his name recognition and the fact that he can still get things done in the ring. Definitely not who I'd build the promotion around long-term, but a good pick heading into TV.

    Good but not great day. Archer-Fale wasn't terrible but not very good either. Ospreay-SANADA was a tad underwhelming but really liked the second half. Ibushi-EVIL started and finished strong. The middle dragged a little but EVIL's work on the ankle was logical. Okada-Sabre was surprisingly short but I liked the story of Okada outmatching Sabre in most departments but was just one pin or sub attempt away from losing. The ME would've been amazing 6-7 years ago but was very good as sort of an aged, gunslingers fight. KENTA's offense for the most part looks good but his GTS is definitely kinda weak now.

    Were there issues with Fyter Fest? I don't recall.

    Mixed bag show. Allie-Brandi and Britt/Riho-Bea/Nakajima were very bad. Dark Order is a good tag team but not over. Page-Sabian was OK but way too long. And the camera cuts are still too choppy. But the six-man tag, the triple-threat tag, and Lucha Bros-SCU were very fun spotfests. The Aja-Awesome staredown was fire. Really enjoyed Kenny-CIMA and the ME. I even liked the Jericho-Page brawl. Only their third major show so they still have time to work out the kinks and I expect All Out to be much better. But there's still work to be done.

    I really liked it a lot. Sort of a more reserved approach from the Bucks and I think it worked. Matt's arm selling was great as well.

    Drunk, middle-aged rockstar brawler has been a good fit for him.

    Foregone conclusion, but I'd say the first great match tonight.

    Show has been fine, but definitely feels like a step down from the last two.

    Very good G1 card today, although some of the results have me worried about who's winning the tournament. I know it's still way too early and the first two days are typically known for having surprising outcomes, but still.

    Parting with JR in the near-future wouldn't surprise me in the least, although I'm sure they really want to have him for TV. Although as much as I enjoy the more modern style and presentation of AEW thus far, I definitely think it would be wise if Cody and co. take heed of the old guard's advice of having clear face/heel dynamics and established rules.

    [2019-07-13-NJPW-G1 Climax 29: Night Two] Jon Moxley vs Taichi

    This was everything it needed to be. A sub-10 minute brawl with a table and chair. Taichi attacking Mox from the get-go really played to Mox's strengths as a brawler and keeping everything tight and compact played to Taichi's strengths. I can't stress enough how much better Mox's offense has looked since leaving WWE (although the suicide dive still sucks). A short, chaotic match like this really helps add variety to the G1, which is always a good thing. Not the best match of the tournament but might be my favorite so far. ****
