    So basically two title main events, which Hiromu/Despy should be pretty great, and then the SSM 10 man tag might be pretty fun. Otherwise a quiet tour.

    G1 information on dates, participates and blocks will trickle out throughout this tour also.

    So I'm assuming Cobb and Elgin made up?

    idk about made up, but maybe more a case of putting personal differences aside to further your career.

    I find it hard to believe they are going to cut a NJPW heavyweight out of the G1 because competition is tight just to make room for Jeff Cobb, but there is something fishy about him returning out of the blue the tour before the G1.

    Super Strong Machine team is likely Taguchi, Tanahashi, Nagata, Tenzan and another.

    I was thinking Kojima but those two are more likely depending on how long he has left.

    Goto & Elgin was great great until Taichi came out, still well worth watching. Taichi can't even do interferences right & you guys wonder why he wasn't in the G1?

    Don't understand the title change at all, I guess they thought Goto was getting too over after WK & Juice so they had to do this garbage booking to cool him off some. What's even the point of flying Cobb over to not put him in G1 over Tonga instead to put him with this worthless title? Elgin? You can't even use him in the US right now. He shouldn't be a player. Taichi? Fuck. Give me Finlay/Goto in a singles match. Wish they'd open up the Openweight aspect of the title or make it a Lion's Gate title. Goto/Sekimoto singles match? HARD Yes.

    Cobb & Elgin are fine. Perhaps Elgin's accuser can start a GoFundMe to get them both out of NJPW.
    I'm a good looking guy, but you show absolutely no interest in dating me! But...you're so nice to me.



    What was I supposed to do? It's only natural that I'd fall in love...

    I enjoyed Hiromu/Despy, but didn't think it was as good as their BOSJ match. I liked the hot opening sequence stuff with the guitar case, but then it got a little drawn out in the middle of the match with nothing exciting going on and Kanemaru/Bushi interference spots. I thought Despy losing the mask and calm af putting it back on because he wanted to stay and fight rather than run or hide from showing his face. A good start to Hiromu's reign, but shave about 5 minutes off and it would of been great.
