    The lack of cards announcement until yesterday totally threw me for a loop. The rest of the cards will been announced as the tour progresses further. All of this tour looks to be a build build towards their massive Jingu Stadium show scheduled on the 29th of August. EVIL vs Naito looks to be the main event for that show.

    The KOPW title is an extremely interesting concept. I don't have high hopes for it though.

    Really big fan of running an outdoor stadium show too.

    Will be shocked if Naito isn't able to get his win back. Should be a good moment in Jingu.

    Ishimori vs Hiromu should be fun as well.

    I change whether I like it or not every hour. The concept is new and puts the wrestlers in new environments, taking them outside of their comfort zones. However this feels very much like a placeholder event and seems oddly put together. The KOPW title will be vacated at the end of the year? That part just makes the tournement feel aimless. I feel they would've been better of giving Okada a big opponent or try and bring someone in for one match. I dunno. We'll see.

    The Stadium setting is cool though. I was watching Tenryu vs Takada the other week which took place in the same venue and the atmosphere sounded amazing. I hope they allow fans to cheer because you don't really want deadair except for a few claps in a stadium show.

    Multi-man is a basically an auto-skip.

    Can we just skip the Ishimori match and cut to Takahashi vs Togo already

    Have to wonder what the point of having Naito win the title back so quickly after losing it would be. Feels like they're just bumping his # of reigns up artificially, and even though I'd rather sooner see the EVIL run end, makes me wonder what the point of it was if he loses it back so quick.

    Shingo has been opposite Yoshi-Hashi this tour a lot so looks like he might be next in line for a NEVER shot, though they could also go for the winner of the upcoming Nagata vs Suzuki match this week.

    All you NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Title fans are in for a treat. I do like Ibushi, Tanahashi and Wato being together as the uber babyface trio. I think they are the favourites.

    They're also running a USA version of the New Japan Cup with their US based talents. Winner gets a shot at Moxley.

    The finals of the NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Title match was pretty awesome. I'm not too into the clapping but the crowd have come up with a unique way to clap to the name syllables so there is that unique atmopshere. YOSHI-HASHI finally getting a tittle belt is a good moment.

    What a good day to be in the tacos fanclub.

    Was a really good match too. Who'd of thought letting wrestlers just go at it without weird interference angles would result in a match that was fun to watch.
