This is our last two match show. For all my whining, I’m sad about that. Every wrestling show should be two matches long. It makes them so easy to watch. Let’s dish out some stars.
I just realised that I published these two reviews the wrong way around. Sorry about that folks. I hope your World Tag League experience hasn’t been too severely affected. Let’s dish out some stars.
It’s a full show, and I don’t know how I feel about that. On the one hand, we get to catch up with the likes of Okada and Tanahashi and see how they’re getting on. On the other, that’s a lot more average wrestling to watch. Oh well, the review must go on. Let’s dish out some stars.
It sometimes feels like I’m the only person watching this tournament. That can’t be true, however, there is zero hype around it. People are much more interested in the various end of year awards and Observer Hall of Fame nominations. To be honest, I don’t blame them.
At least we’re hanging with the better block on this show, and that always makes my job a bit easier. Let’s dish out some stars.
The four-match cards continue, and – surprise, surprise – this one actually looks a bit tasty. I haven’t been coming into these shows excited about what I’m going to see, but this might buck the trend. Which probably means I’m going to come out disappointed. Damn, heightened expectations. Let’s dish out some cautiously optimistic stars.
Night four of World Tag League and we’ve got some Young Lions in action. I’m a Lion lover, though, so that’s A-okay with me. I’m not going to chatter away for too long here. Let’s dish out some stars.
World Tag League might not have the prestige of the G1 or even the Super Juniors but this year has the potential to be interesting. They’ve left the big names out and brought in a load of fresh foreign talent to create some intriguing combos. It’s set up a tournament that promises to be a lot of fun. Let’s dish out some stars.
For the first time this year, New Japan comes into a major show having been merely alright last time around. Destruction didn’t set the world on fire, but, King of Pro Wrestling is not Destruction, and, on paper at least, this was one hell of a card. Let’s dish out those stars.
In a strange way, the pressure was off Destruction in Hiroshima. The first Destruction show was New Japan’s worst outing this year and it’s lowered the expectations for this tour. The wrestlers booked here won’t have to do much to impress, as it isn’t hard to improve on crap. Let’s dish out those stars.
Here we are. The nineteenth and final show of this year’s G1 and my final review. It’s been one hell of a tournament with umpteen match of the year contenders and a fair few emotional moments. So for one final time (well, until the next wrestling show I review), let’s dish out those stars.
