G125 Day 14 Review (08.09.2015) Goto and Ishii head butts for everyone

G125 Day 6 Review, Block B is Cursed, Nakamura Injured and More…

Day 5 was the strongest day of the tournament thus far and right now Block A is absolutely KILLING the G1.  On the other end of the spectrum, the last time we saw Block B, on Day 4, we were … Continue reading

G1 25 Day 4 Review, Does Honma Pin Okada? (Hint: No)

On paper I had very little faith that Day 4 was going to live up to the hype of the previous three days.  Nothing on the show really stuck out other than Karl Anderson/Hirooki Goto.  At this point Block B seems to be … Continue reading
