G125 Day 16 Review (08.12.2015) Honmamania Running Wild!

I’m not entirely clear on the math, but it’s possible by the end of Day 16 there will be a big logjam at the top, or a simple, two person slot for the chance at the finals.  Either way, heading … Continue reading

So Block B basically killed it in Korakuen Hall on the 9th (Day 14) and now Block A gets their chance in front of the Korakuen fans for Day 15.  We’re in the home stretch of the 25th G1 tournament … Continue reading

G125 Day 10 Review (8.4.2015) Nakamura on the move

Sometimes I just don’t have anything pithy to say as the lede.  This is Day 10, we’re getting dangerously close to the end of the group stage of the G1 and if it had not been for Nakamura’s injury I … Continue reading
