    Ishii/Moxley was out of this world. I give Ospreay/Ibushi the edge for the athleticism and story they were working, but Ishii/Moxley IS New Japan.

    I know the majority of you guys don't like Juice for one reason or another but I really enjoyed Juice vs Cobb

    It's crazy how I never really looked forward to any Ambrose matches in WWE in like 2-3 years (outside of the Shield stuff) but now he's my favorite guy to watch since he's left the company. Him vs Ishii was awesome

    No surprise. Ishii was easily the MVP last year.
    Best match of moxley’s career easily

    besides Ospreay Ibushi maybe the best match of the tournament

    Three straight nights where the main was the best match of the tournament up to that point

    Shit is bonkers

    That match is a serious MOTY candidate for me

    Not gonna be close for me, which is insane considering it's their best match and a comfortable 4.75. Their 5 star match needs more than the 15-25 they've gotten. I can visualize it in my head. Not quite there yet.

    Just finished Okaka vs Ospreay. I enjoyed Moxley vs Ishii just a smidge more, but damn this tournament is amazing. I feel like a fool for not really watching it much in years past

    Just so hard to finally get into it. Then you do and your world opens right up.

    My top 3 is Ospreay/Ibushi, Moxley/Ishii, Ishii/Jay. I'd probably even have Ospreay/Sanada just a notch above the Okada match.

    Who needs Omega when you have an Ishii?

    Ishii/Naito and Moxley/Shingo were great tonight, the former especially. Big match Naito returned.

    He's really stepped it up. Finally becoming what I always thought he'd be.

    One of the best G1 shows is tonight. Ospreay/Evil, Tana/Ibushi, Okada/Sanada, Zack/Archer

    Also, Ospreay and Zack was blow away, definite 4.75. Not as good as their RPW match which I watched again and is one of my favorite matches ever but whatever
