We knew it'd be stacked but I'm shocked by the exclusion of Suzuki. Hopefully he's Sabre's partner for the "preview" tags so we still him against guys like KENTA, Ibushi and Ospreay in some form.

Other recent G1 names missing are Makabe, Kojima and Tonga. I know Jericho mentioned G1 at Dominion but I'm not surprised he's not in. I took it as more of a "maybe he'll show up during" comment.

Some good, hard action between Cobb and Ishii there. Umino looked really good too.

I love that they're actually going with the Umino/Moxley connection after Mox basically took him at Dominion.

HE DID IT AGAIN!!! :lol:

Give me more of Cobb/Ishii. Holy hell was that a good ol fashioned slobberknocker.

Goto hanging out with Shibata at the LA Dojo has paid off as I've gone from skipping the majority of any match he's involved in to almost being completely invested in this one.

Can we again talk about Taichi having the greatest glow up in pro wrestling in 2019? Cause he went from the drizzlins to being downright awesome. I still have to watch Goto vs White yet from Night 2, but so far Taichi vs Moxley is my MOTN from that show.

Did you see those Dojo guys in the Kenta/Tanahashi teaser six man tag? Shibata could be the greatest trainer not in NXT at this rate. Those guys looked great!

Yeah, I know it was mentioned by I think Rocky on commentary but I'd love to see a Japanese vs LA "dojo war".

Shooter Umino is awesome!!!

Night 3 is incredible. Even Fale/Archer was enjoyable.

The Stockholm Syndrome-esk relationship between Umino and Moxley might be my favorite thing in pro wrestling today.

Also I still have two matches to go in night 3, but I loved SANADA vs Ospreay and Okada vs ZSJ. Great matches! I still am cheering for SANADA to take the G1. My mans’ time is now!

I’m three nights in and I think KENTA’s rise has been the most interesting thing. I’ve liked White being faced with former CHAOS members fun too. It’s like when the NFL announces team schedules and some storylines instantly write themselves.

Finally catching up, on night 5. EVIL/SANADA lived up to the build. Ibushi/Ospreay might be better than the Ricochet/Ospreay "vader" match.

Love the ending to the ZSJ/Fale match. Plus Ospreay & Okada was amazing.
