So I got up early here in the states to watch Dominion live, seeing as how New Japan doesn't give those in other countries enough time to watch the replay before they blurt out the results.

Overall a very good show. Main Event fell flat tho, personally I just wasn't feeling Okada/Jericho.

Im just curious as to where New Japan is going now as everything just seems a mess. Okada looks to have no one fresh lined up, it looks like Jay White is in line for a title match and I am just not interested.

I was upset that Osprey beat Shingo, but if it was ment as a way to move Shingo into the heavyweight division I am ok with it. But, Osprey didn't need to win the Jr. Heavyweight title. Hiromu is very close to being back and if Dragon Lee was still champion that story would have wrote itself.

For the most part tho, I am just really curious in the game plan the rest of the year for New Japan, The G1 tournament looks promising, but the released cards for the Australian shows coming up are cringe worthy at best.

This is the time of year when the title goes on the backburner and all the focus is on the G1, so he doesn't really need to have challengers lined up yet.

I liked Dominion, but wasn't really a fan of Ibushi/Naito. I haven't enjoyed any of their matches against each other this year. Those two are extremely reckless when working together, and I get so worried about their health that I can't get caught up in enjoying the match.

The G-1s entire purpose is to create credible matchups for the IWGP title, elevate Jr. HWs into the HW scene, and set up the top programs all the way through to New Years. So, that's why the Jericho finish is fine, and I like what they did if they use Jericho to run in and cost Tanahashi early so he has to work as little as possible.

Moxley, KENTA, Shingo, Ospreay all in the G1. Talk about stacked.

According to Wikipedia, Jericho and Lance Hoyt/Archer are in as well. Couldn’t care less about Lance, but Jericho should provide some decent match ups.

I really want to see Moxley vs Minoru Suzuki real bad. Hope that happens in G1.

Jericho teased the idea of being in, but I'm skeptical about it actually happening. If he was going to be in I think they would've plugged him as appearing on Night 1 in Dallas, like they've done with most of the major stars already.

I think Jericho is trying to get in because he wants to cross the G-1 off his bucket list, because this will likely be the last time he'll have the schedule room. I don't think NJPW want him in because they have a lot of mouths to feed already in this G-1 and protecting Jericho to a satisfactory level would be a nightmare. That's just my read though.
