They are putting a lot into Jay White and that’s not a bad thing, he might not be there in terms of in ring work but he’s clicking as a character. It is one of the things I love about New Japan, when they want to make a new star they go all in and work hard to do it.

I am not a fan of Yoshi-Hashi too much but I have liked both his matches in the G1 this year. They weren’t up to the levels of Omega/Naito, or ZSJ/Ibushi, but I’ve been impressed. His match with Evil felt solid and it was genuinely entertaining. Just wanted to give credit where credit is due.

My match of the night was Makabe/Suzuki. I’ve always liked when these two go at it. It is just a hard hitting brawl. Seeing Suzuki down 0-2 isn’t something I expected to see but both of his matches have been good thus far.
