Orange Cassidy vs Jack Sabre Jr. Okay, this is my favorite match of the night so far. These are two guys who I both really, really enjoy an they both put on an amazing and enjoyable match. I loved all of the mat wrestling from both of the guys, even though it is not Orange's forte. And even seeing Orange lose is never fun but didn't take away from this really good match :)

Great trios match. Although I think my favorite part had to be when Nigel accused Taz of not being objective and the response was "Like you during a Danielson match." That was very, very nice.

But the match was enjoyable as a whole. Have to admit it was fun seeing Jericho lose due to the Judas Effect, even if Hook didn't deliver it with any kind of surprise.

Thank fuckin' god they ended with Ospreay/Swerve... because just imagine they would've put Mox/Naito last. The heck was going on with that one. :anna

Naito ain't got it anymore and what's the novelty of the match when they already did it on an American show earlier this year. If it was one for one in Japan and America it would have been different, first one was hot despite both having similar destino issues lol

That's fair... I haven't seen the other match, so I went into it with another mindset, I guess.

Still makes me wish they'd put another Match in the semi-Main spot... like the AEW Women's Title match.

it was a very good main event in April at an NJPW show with the hot finish of Moxley winning as a surprise to most but you could tell by how things were shaking out he had 0 chance of retaining here, both NJPW and Tony accidentally spoiled it so that probably hurt the crowd perception too

Yeah Naito and Moxley's Match together was surely off throughout their battle with each other. I remember feeling the same way in their first bout but they really cooked the 2nd Half leading to Moxley winning the IWGP World Title. I'm more confused on the direction of New Japan at the highest of levels right now you gave the title back to Naito and the G1 Climax starting soon why would I want to watch that tourney knowing Naito might not be giving up that Title for a little bit? At least Moxley had some fresh matchups to come vs the winner of the G1 now I'm going to need to suffer through another one knowing the guy who wins it will probably be a former winner or champion rather than someone new. Unless I'm wrong and New Japan's people wake up and Tsuji, Umino, or Taichi win it all and beat Naito in January.

Just watching Forbidden door, some decent matches so far. Up to last match which I've heard was the best ospreay v Strickland.

Naito v Mox my fav so far banger of a match.

Pretty good main event. The matches I didn't mention was because I was pretty focused on the show. The main event was really good, even if I am not the hugest Swerve fan. But often, even when I am not a fan of someone, they grow on me with their good work.

Have to say that Orange Cassidy vs Zach Sabre Jr was my favorite match of the night. Not too shocking being that they are two of my favorite wrestlers in the world. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
