    Ishii was my MVP @Big Dangerous @Pinhead Dude never has a match that isn't at least very good...then when you factor in his age it's down right incredible what he did in the tournament two years in a row. My favorite match was still probably Okada vs. Ospreay tho

    I have to catch up, I'm only on day 17

    I already know who wins, I guessed that right from the start, but I still want to see it go down

    Yeah you're missing out on some great matches otherwise. Definitely one of the most enjoyable stretches of pro wrestling for me

    I think Omega and Ibushi's best matches last year are just a notch above the best this year, but Ospreay filled that role and Ibushi was still awesome.

    It's splitting hairs over these last three years.

    I always say, 2017 top end is untouchable and 2018 was better top to bottom. I think 2019 had a top end better than 2018 and was better top to bottom than 2017.

    It's annoying none of the Super J Cup was on NJPW World...I think it's awesome El Phamtasmo won though...it's perfect seeing as Liger is the one who brought him in.

    Saturday's big show from England isn't going to be on there either but at least it's going to be available on Fite...it's only $25, as oppose to the usual $40, so I think I'll order it.

    Man Saturday is going to be insane...three big shows all overlapping...
    NXT UK Takeover
    NJPW Royal Quest
    AEW All Out

    Not to mention the CM Punk live podcast from Starrcast is that day too

    I'll be off in time for All Out but I don't really have the extra $50 to throw at the PPV. Rent + credit card payment + phone bill all due on this paycheck

    Turns out it's hard to make 600 bucks last over a month. Gonna order a shirt or two on my first cheque. Hopefully it does close to as good as DoN.

    The Super J Cup is now up on New Japan World, though so far it's only Japanese commentary. @NJPWBros
