We have now reached day 1 of this year's Best of the Super Jr tournament in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

http://www.puroresufan.com/njpw/2013/05 ... pan-52413/

NJPW, 5/24/13 (TV Asahi ch2)
Tokyo Korakuen Hall
1,650 Fans

1. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Jushin Thunder Liger [2] beat Hiromu Takahashi [0] (7:49) with a brainbuster.
2. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: TAKA Michinoku [2] beat Tiger Mask IV [0] (4:00) with the Heavy Killer #1.
3. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: Jado [2] beat Kenny Omega [0] (9:37) with the Crossface of JADO.
4. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Taichi [2] beat Rocky Romero [0] (8:30) with the Jagai Koroshi.
5. Kazuchika Okada, YOSHI-HASHI & Gedo beat Togi Makabe, Hirooki Goto & Tomoaki Honma (15:20) when Okada used the Rainmaker on Honma.
6. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Ricochet [2] beat Barreta [0] (11:56) with a double rotation moonsault.
7. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: Alex Koslov [2] beat Ryusuke Taguchi [0] (12:25) with a Russian Star Press.
8. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: BUSHI [2] beat KUSHIDA [0] (9:25) with the BUSHI Roll.
9. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Prince Devitt [2] beat Alex Shelley [0] (12:44) with the Bloody Sunday.

* Plenty of surprises on day one of the 20th Best of the Super Jr. tournament at Korakuen Hall but little surprise in the main event where Bullet Club leader and reigning IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion, Prince Devitt, defeated Alex Shelley. Aiming for full revenge on Devitt after the betrayal, Taguchi’s tournament got off to a bad start when he was pinned by Alex Koslov. Former Michinoku Pro rivals Tiger Mask and TAKA Michinoku, who have been rivals for the approaching 20 years now, also squared off with TAKA picking up the victory.

* The NWA’s Bruce Tharpe and Rob Conway (NWA World Heavyweight Champion) appeared after intermission for the first time since Conway successfully defended his title against Kojima on 4/7 at Sumo Hall. They announced their New Japan re-landing so expect another title defense possibly as soon as the 6/22 Osaka show.


In block A, Jushin Liger, Taichi, Ricochet and Prince Devitt get wins on day one. In Block B, the day one winners are TAKA Michinoku, Jado, Alex Koslov and BUSHI. Of these, I'm a little surprised to see Jado beat Kenny Omega, but it's just day one of the round robin portion -- plenty of time for Omega to pick up some victories.

Over at WWE.com, they have an article mashing-up 5 of their "biggest" summer matches with 5 summer blockbusters.

This one's my favorite of the bunch:

The Avengers mashup is pretty bad. :lol:

Day two of this year's Best of the Super Jr tournament was today:

http://www.puroresufan.com/njpw/2013/05 ... pan-52613/

NJPW, 5/26/13 (Samurai! TV)
Numazu Distribution Center
1,500 Fans – Super No Vacancy Full House

1. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: BUSHI [4] beat Jado [2] (9:17) by pinfall.

3. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: Alex Koslov [4] beat Tiger Mask IV [0] (8:14) with a Russian Star Press.
4. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Rocky Romero [2] beat Jushin Thunder Liger [2] (8:15) with a diving double kneedrop.

8. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Taichi [4] beat Alex Shelley [0] (8:58) with the Jagai Koroshi.

10. Togi Makabe, Hirooki Goto & Tomoaki Honma beat Kazuchika Okada, YOSHI-HASHI & Gedo (13:18) when Makabe used a King Kong kneedrop on Gedo.

-

Block A:
1. Prince Devitt [4]
- Taichi [4]
3. Jushin Thunder Liger [2]
- Rocky Romero [2]
- Barreta [2]
- Ricochet [2]
7. Alex Shelley [0]
- Hiromu Takahashi [0]
- Titan [0]

Block B:
1. BUSHI [4]
- TAKA Michinoku [4]
- Alex Koslov [4]
4. Jado [2]
- Brian Kendrick [2]
6. Tiger Mask [0]
- Ryusuke Taguchi [0]
- KUSHIDA [0]
- Kenny Omega [0]


There's no shock seeing Prince Devitt up there among the early four pointers at this point. I am a little surprised to see Taichi and BUSHI up there with four points as well though. Those two are both usually midcarders at best, even when New Japan puts on one of there junior heavyweight centered shows. I like Taichi, so it's nice to see him up there, even if I don;t think it's going to last. With BUSHI though, I can't say I really care one way or the other as I've never really cared for him all that much.

On the other side, I would have thought that Alex Shelly would be doing better after two matches. Seeing him at zero points at this stage is a little surprising. The same could be said for Tiger mask IV.

I say it every year when this starts, but every year it becomes even more amazing that Liger is still around and still doing this stuff. He's almost 50 and still competing in this. That's insane.

When I saw Shelley was involved, I thought he'd have a chance to go kind of far. There's still a lot of time left, but I thought if he was going to compete that he'd be doing it to be showcased and set up for bigger things.

Yeah, it is amazing.

Don't count him out yet. Every year there's somebody who makes a big comeback to make the semi-finals. It's entirely possible that it's going to be him this year.

I Haven't seen it yet, but from what I understand, it starts off as a triangle choke, but when Michinoku's opponent tries to power lift and slam him to get out of it, he turns it into a hurucanrana.

FFS ROH.

1st complaint: the Internet version of the show has some shit lawyer commercial that is utterly low rent.

2nd complaint: per the last tapings, they're trying to regulate the crowd.

The downfall continues.

I read they're not going to book Mike Mondo anymore which is basically a roundabout way of saying he's been released.

Was he worth watching?

He had the Cena-thing where you when watching him, you might not get the most technically profound guy but you knew you were getting everything he had to give you.
