    So many round Robin tournaments in NJPW, I love it! It should be an example to Wrestling Promoters. Give your product some legitimacy and the audience will see as legitimate. Treat your product like a joke and people will see it as a joke.

    Looks like they meet for Day 2. If Naito defeats Ishii then he may be on the way to the top bracket.

    I usually hate tournaments, but it's cool that the winner gets a shot at a title of his choosing.

    @Devil's Backbone if you haven't already blocked the aforementioned bar losers, please do so so we can get them banned if they post in a thread they are blocked out of.
