Stacked card. Coming so soon after the BOSJ finale makes for an overdose of great wrestling, especially given NXT Takeover 25 was just a few days ago and AEW just a week prior to that.

I’m very enthusiastic about this card. All of the title matches have potential to be good to great (even if that tag matchup is getting a little stale).

Moxley feels like the final boss that Umino has to face before he can go out on excursion. I like seeing Takagi in a heavyweight matchup, and I wonder whether that will be his ultimate destination.

W T F - Moxley is working a Young Lion? To open the show? Amazing! I fcking love Gedo!
While shocked he’s not defending the title I assume this means he holds it til Dallas? But is he wrestling in Dallas, Texas, USA?

Two complaints I have is that Yoshi Hashi is getting a match in a spot I much rather see Liger vs Suzuki in singles. And do we need mother GoD LIJ tag? Can New Japan not find other challengers for those belts?
