[Honorable Mention]During day of the show loomed an extra confusion atmosphere by last minute change of just over half of card.(strange absence of Larry Legend AND Nigel Mcguinness added to said atmosphere) While happy to see Cary Silkin was unsure about him being here as a fan or for official reasons. Taking redragon out of title bout was large minus but keeping contention by win was a plus. Moose was very respectable,Elgin needed win most after dropping never trio title BACK to bullet club,Rush continued proving future star potential but Castle would not be denied!(the "party peacock" justified his high level pop by setting new record of winning THREE 4 corner survivals in a row over 8days!!) Another card change had Gedo subbing for Romero which would've been more practical IF he was sidelined so whole match came off somewhat imbalanced. Briscoe & Lyger's upcoming title shots complimented their big win over bullet club in potential showstealer #1!(maybe Mark will get long overdue tv shot in summer??) Starting to understand why Tonga & Roa are IWGP tag champs yet disagree with a few bullet fans on why "hangman" Page needs specific look to define his new persona. Sad that Alexander ended his run on a low note but give Dijak plenty of credit for surprising code of honor action(& sizeable crowd pop)as some consolation. War Machine's severe lack of heat makes it more clear why Addiction's second reign was right decision for tagtitle at present time.(bonus points to champs in smooth comedic way they sold their comic book) Sydal is more "reborn" than ever by strong work here & him/ricochet regaining jr tag title from Rappoingi Vice! Naito showed usa fans why he deserves to be IWGP champion AND Los Ingornables co-leader in potential showstealer #2!(ACH matching him in progressive ring savvy & psychology offered bonus comedic element) The rebooked ROH vs. NJP vs. BC(team pwg?)main event screamed MOTYC but for whatever reasons ended up being extremely good.(Ishii neutralizing SUCK IT! sequence on Matt & Okada stealing it against both were comedy highlights!!) During intermission we enjoyed bonus Taeler Hendrix/Mandy Leon segment & new Whitmer/Corino buildup. Grade B+
