    Oh cool, the one winged angel. He has a fun moveset, lots of knees to the head.

    I was dozing off during the Cody/Ibushi match but I liked what I saw from it. That crossrhodes off the apron was crazy.

    I woke up this morning and watched the Omega/Y2J match and it lived up. Jericho's best match in ages. That was the first Omega match I've watched, and I was impressed. I might watch the main event sometime soon.

    So New Year's Dash was last night/this morning for us and it's basically the New Japan's version of the night after Wrestlemania and it's usually the set up to the next big storylines and this years was really good.

    Jericho is not done with NJPW as he attacked Naito and it looks like they are having a match soon.

    Cody wanted to attack Kota Ibushi with a chair in revenge for the loss last night and Kenny Omega saved him (Kota and Kenny was best friends and tag team partners several years ago). So there's cracks in the Bullet Club between Kenny and Cody, Kenny asserted that he was the leader and Cody stormed off to the back.

    Then Kenny offered Jay White a spot in Bullet Club and Jay faked joining but then hit Kenny with his finisher (sister abigail) and said he was coming after Kenny's US title.

    So we have some big matches set for the future with

    Jericho vs Naito

    Kota vs Cody rematch

    Jay White vs Kenny Omega

    Fun fact: the shortest match of that show was longer than almost all matches in WWE and thatís giving them credit for the multi man shows like Survivor Series. I think the shortest match at this show was 17 minutes.

    I watched again on AXS-TV last night, I have to say, JR is slipping a bit on the commentary.

    I am torn on this. I absolutely love Kenny Omega (first saw him on Candice/Joey show on youtube) and I think he would be a legitimate superstar for wwe. Problem is, VKM did not create Kenny Omega, and thus will not treat him as such. Omega is way too good, too big of a name to go to NXT, and yet like Finn Balor he would get lost in the shuffle because he is not "big enough". Omega is good enough to headline Wrestlemania, but OTOH, Vince will kill everything that make Omega cool. So, I want Omega to stay away from WWE at all costs, and it sounds like he prefers NJPW over WWE, anyways.

    Yep. Really like Jericho/Omega match but felt let it told an incomplete story. It's like watching "SW: New Hope", and then no other Star Wars was made. Okada/Naito was the match of the night, for me. My gawd, Okada has a better drop kick then Dolph Ziggler.

    WK12 will be better than anything the WWE main roster PPV will do this year, and thus I will not be purchasing any WWE PPV this year. I might purchase a Takeover Special, but PPV is a no go for me.
    Screw sabermetics.

    Honestly 75 percent of the roster is being held back. Itís a fine line. I wanna see more of guys like omega Okada the bucks Scurll and honestly most of the indie guys but wwe waters every one down. If only hhh had full control.
