this is what I read:
"This is terrible news for Mondo, who just returned to ROH in March after suffering a broken fibula late last year. There are some who feel he rushed his return to the ring, and that it may have been a contributing factor to what happened at the clinic."

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.


Yeah, that's true. They do always have the one massive comeback guy. It seems like a role that gets as much respect as the guy that just dominates the first couple rounds.

I would like Curtis Axel to wear a singlet like his dad 'cause for some reason my eyes keep gravitating towards that huge scar on his abdomen (btw he does a pretty good perfect plex)

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.


Seems really impractical to have to rely on your opponent to help you do a move on him. :P

Not me, seems like a step back. Especially considering they don’t even have the title on the line this time around.

I am worried Punk will leave Heyman for accepting the challenge without his authorization. :-(

I'm thinking thats what will lead to the Punk face turn. You know he is gonna get cheered no matter what so he might as well be a face. Then they can have a Punk vs Lesnar match at some point.

I didn’t like good guy Punk. He was just another dick like Cena and Sheamus. And he’s really the best bad guy, but it’s not saying much right now.

I don't think its a feud. Its's more like "We'll be in Chicago, think we can do a match while you're on vacation?" We'll see if he's roster back after the match. This feels like a convenient one off.

It's now day three of this year's Best of the Super Jr tournament:

http://www.puroresufan.com/njpw/2013/05 ... pan-52813/

NJPW, 5/28/13
Toyohashi City Gymnasium #2
1,200 Fans – No Vacancy

1. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Titan [2] beat Hiromu Takahashi [0] (5:26) with a Tornillo.
2. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: BUSHI [6] beat TAKA Michinoku [4] (5:47) with the Bushi Roll.
3. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: KUSHIDA [2] beat Brian Kendrick [2] (9:13) with the Midnight Express.
4. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: Tiger Mask [2] beat Kenny Omega [0] (8:14) with a Destroy suplex hold.
5. Karl Anderson & Tama Tonga beat Hiroshi Tanahashi & Captain New Japan (10:04) when Anderson used the Gun Stun on Captain.
6. Best of the Super Jr. – Block B: Jado [4] beat Ryusuke Taguchi [0] (10:31) by pinfall.
7. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Taichi [6] beat Jushin Thunder Liger [2] (7:50) by countout.
8. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Rocky Romero [4] beat Ricochet [2] (10:58) with a tombstone piledriver.
9. Best of the Super Jr. – Block A: Prince Devitt [6] beat Baretta [2] (10:12) with the Bloody Sunday.
10. Kazuchika Okada, YOSHI-HASHI & Gedo beat Togi Makabe, Hirooki Goto & Tomoaki Honma (12:18) when Okada used the Rainmaker on Honma.

* Flawless starts by Devitt, BUSHI and Taichi who all move to 6 points (3-0 records) in the early days of the 20th Best of the Super Jr. tournament.

-

Block A:
1. Prince Devitt [6]
- Taichi [6]
3. Rocky Romero [4]
4. Jushin Thunder Liger [2]
- Barreta [2]
- Ricochet [2]
- Titan [2]
8. Alex Shelley [0]
- Hiromu Takahashi [0]

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


I'm still surprised to see what's being done with Taichi and BUSHI this year. Maybe New Japan is planning something with them? Like with Alex Shelly, I'm surprised to see Kenny Omega off to a slow start, but it could be that he's the one they're planning to have this year's big comeback with. If that's the case then I expect to see Shelly pick up some wins soon. Right now he's one half of the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag-Team champs and I can't see New Japan booking one of their current champions to do poorly in this tournament.
