The night after Wrestle Kingdom 13 had some good matches, but the night was centered more on setting up new feuds for all the new champs. Some big statements were made tonight, though few real surprises were to be had.
The fallout from Tokyo lands at Korakuen Hall, and even though many people are hurting from last night, the beginnings of many new rivalries are formed among the chaos.
The first IWGP US Heavyweight Champ is crowned in the finale of a highly entertaining tournament, Billy Gunn challenges Hiroshi Tanahashi for the IWGP IC Title, The Young Bucks put their Jr. Heavyweight Tag Titles on the line against Roppongi Vice once again, and more on the second of two nights for NJPW in the USA.
Day 1 of the G1 Special in USA shows started the IWGP US Title tournament in a great way. This show had some great first round matches as well as a really good IWGP Heavyweight Title match between Okada and Cody!
Cody gets a one-on-one shot at Christopher Daniels’ ROH World Title in the main event of a very good PPV from ROH.
The final stop before Best in the World also happens to be the 300th episode of ROH TV! This show had two good matches and built nicely towards the PPV, but otherwise it wasn’t a particularly special episode.
KUSHIDA battles Marty Scurll for the TV Title, Chuck Taylor makes his ROH debut, and Search and Destroy has had about enough of The Rebellion on a great episode of ROH TV!
ROH and New Japan clashes once again in a show that featured a bunch of very good and highly entertaining matches.

Another pretty good episode of ROH TV is highlighted by a Four Corner Survival match to name a second (or actually, third) number one contender for the ROH World Title.
There were a lot of people attacking other people on this show, but I think it did a fine job of building interest for Death Before Dishonor.
Jay Lethal defends his ROH World Title against Colt Cabana in a very good match that is the highlight of a show that included Jay White versus Will Ferrara and the debut of Mark Briscoe’s Chicken Shack. Mark uses big words.
