The first of two nights to end the NJPW year at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo serves as a nice preview of things to come at Wrestle Kingdom in a few short weeks.
The second round of A Block matches were consistently very good despite not having the same blockbuster match-ups as the opening night.
B Block of the 2017 G1 Climax starts with a round of great matches featuring, among other things, Juice Robinson getting off to an impressive start, EVIL and SANADA tearing the house down, and Kenny Omega trying to survive against the maniac Minoru Suzuki!
The 2017 G1 Climax started with some good (and some great) matches from A Block and set up the start of B Block in a very nice way with some interesting tag matches!
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!
There were a lot of big expectations going in to many of the matches at Dominion, and I think they were met and in some cases exceeded. This was a great show top to bottom.
Two nights before the big event in Osaka, the Road to Dominion had a lot of fun tag matches and managed to build some solid interest in all of the upcoming title matches.
The Best of the Super Jr. 24 tournament ends with great final match a bunch of fun tag matches in the undercard.
It wasn’t quite as exciting as the finale of Block A, but the last night of B Block matches still provided some surprising and entertaining matches and moments.
Block A of the tournament ends with four very good matches full of emotion and action.
This was one of the standout nights featuring a standout match between KUSHIDA and Ryusuke Taguchi.
