Yeah rarely do I listen to the Commentary that's not NJPW, but I picked the right night to switch to the ROH team and I love Rocky even more and might give him the ROH based team more listens going forward. Rocky not wanting to get his ass kicked by Archer, he doesn't have a deathwish, then he's a tough guy when Jado came around he wants to kick his ass for us do it Rocky. Either beat that man or beat down Police on a OZ Academy or Sendai Girls Show please.

All the Multi-Man Tags I thought were solid to great, my favorite with Los Ingobernables de Japon vs Ibushi/Ishii/Taguchi/Narita. Between Taguchi's antics that always get me especially turn coating at a moments notice to save his ass, or even Taguchi directing traffic as he tries to get Ishii to play along he's so great. We'll never forget though when he wants to get down to business the man get it done! We even had Ibushi and Naito teasing us further of the feud to come with them involving the IWGP IC Title, and EVIL/Ishii battling it out was the cherry on top, when Narita wasn't nearly giving us a heart attack with a possible win of a lifetime.

Juice Robinson vs Chase Owens. Man this Match could of been really good, but the countless interference during the Match really bring it down for me. Juice continues to make me think he's the Surfer Sting of this era. Kids, Men, and Women love him and he has that same love from the Crowd as does Juice does. Also he's all energy all the time, just waiting to see when will be his Great American Bash moment come for him down the road blue chipper I feel.

Be still my heart and stop time Shibata came out dressed like a Gangster wished I knew what he said on Commentary especially in the finals of the NJ CUP Finals.

Kazuckika Okada vs SANADA. The slow place will frustrate NJPW at times during the Match, but it was built nicely and it came off strong for the Main Event. It would of been great to see SANADA get the win, and I think the fans wanted it, but Okada vs White was of course was the smartest choice to make going into that MSG Show.

Kenny's entrance filled me with DETERMINATION, and this is coming from someone who typically doesn't like Undertale. A very poetic end to his run in New Japan until ROH does something to piss of New Japan and they end up crawling back to the Bucks and Omega to form a partnership with AEW.

Agreed, everything about it was perfect.

Hey, guess what? I just got done watching New Year's Dash, and I have to say it was pretty good. I will give it a 6/10, it was nothing fancy but it got the job done for what it was supposed to do.

Also, forewarning I am trying to catch up on NJPW, so late of stuff will be late as I have to catch up on about three months worth of Wrestling.

Anyone else watched The New Beginning in Sapporo and Osaka?
To be honest, those shows I kept up with the news for the most part. As much as I like New Japan, the time difference makes it hard to watch all the shows and I mainly focus on the bigger shows, keep up as much as I can with news and their English YouTube channel and watch the others when I have time and matches stand out.

Ah, gotcha. I just got done watching The New Beginning in Sapporo and about to begin Osaka, and didn't know.

I have to say after watching New Beginning in Sapporo, the fact Jay White calls his submission finisher T.T.O, Tanahashi Tapped Out, and is a reverse Figure-Four Leglock is great.

Remind me to add that as a second finisher to my Jay White CAW in 2k.

Apparently, New Japan didn't know anything about the nZo and CasXL "angle", which I still hope isn't true, and they were upset with RoH and said it felt like it took away from the match.
