this G1 sounds soooooo good. Give me Shingo vs Ishii

also, i'm not surprised that Yoshi-hashi didn't make it, but Suzuki missing out does break my heart.

I'd take YOSHI-HASHI over Taichi any day.

Do you guys think this will be better than that NJPW/ROH show from a little bit ago? I kind of want to watch it but the last show was kinda boring.

Excellent! I will have to check out the dates and look into it. I know a lot of the names on this list just by virtue of the wrestling zeitgeist, so it will be fun to have people to put with the names haha.

And I really am getting so fed up with RAW and Smackdown that I need some really good wrestling to make up for it. Wrestling I haven’t already watched a hundred times *coughcough*NXT*coughcough*

I’m actually kind of excited for it now too!

Did they give a kayfabe reason for Suzuki not being in?

Also, I just watched the six-man against Okada, YOSHI-HASHI, & Henare... and I'm more than fine with Suzuki not being in the G1. It's one less Suzuki-Gun formula match.

no, but he did cut a promo on NJPW keeping him out.

maybe he injures someone like Tanahashi and takes his place, it would explain tana taking off since he's still kinda injured.

He has great fire and has had some great stuff against guys like Ishii, Suzuki, and Naito. And he's clearly not a young-boy becaues he is allowed to do all of the moves and has customized tights.
