We’re into the quarter-finals of the New Japan Cup and it’s a pretty good field this year. You’ve got everyone from Tanahashi to Toru Yano with a Juice and a Zack Sabre Jr in between. There are at least two or three guys left who you could pinpoint as potential winners, and that always adds to the fun. Let’s dish out some stars.
It’s Night Four of the New Japan Cup, and I’m sure everyone is as excited as I am to get rowdy during Toru Yano vs Davey Boy Smith Jr. Quite frankly, if that comes in at under four stars, I will eat my hat (disclaimer: that is not a promise). Jokes aside, I’ve been enjoying these shows so far. As I write this, I’ve just finished watching Fastlane so it can’t be worse than that. Let’s dish out some stars.
Day three of the New Japan Cup and on paper, tonight’s matches look like the most exciting so far. Even the one that has YOSHI-HASHI in it has a certain Kota Ibushi to make up for his lack of charisma. Throw in Zack Sabre Jr’s war against Naito’s hat, and we’re onto a winner. Let’s dish out some stars.
Night two of the New Japan Cup and for the second time in recent months, WordPress has deleted my first draft of this review. Therefore, if you notice that some of the undercard match reviews are slightly lacking in critical depth, call them, not me. I’m sure you can survive without a five hundred word moan on Iizuka’s performance. Let’s dish out some stars.
Sixteen years, it might not be quite as impressive as NJPW’s forty-six, but it’s still a decent inning for Ring of Honor. A hell of a lot has changed since they started back in 2002 and the only people still around are The Briscoes and Christopher Daniels. Although if you have a peek at that card, a few of them have gone on to do quite impressive things. I guess we’ll see if this new generation can do the same. Let’s dish out some stars.
It’s the last of the final stops on the Road to WrestleMania, and we are in buzzword central. WWE is making sure that it is impossible for you to not realise that the big show is around the corner and they ain’t going for subtle. They will beat you round the head with that sign if they have to. Let’s dish out some stars.
It’s New Japan Cup time. I don’t like to think about last year’s edition as it led to the retirement of one of my favourites. However, Shibata did deliver the match of his life at Sakura Genesis. Let us hope that we keep that element and ditch the career-destroying injury. Let’s dish out some stars.
