Interesting angle New Japan are running on who'll face Switchblade next
Spoiler
Show
Kota has sided with Tana now. Goto said he wanted to tag with Ibushi also. Tana, Ospreay, Goto, Okada and Ibushi were all in the ring together and it seems they might align as a kind of super faction I think. Aces of Chaos would be a cool name

These are cool, think I've watched all the Kenny ones. There's others too if you search NJPW on the road like with Osperay, Tama, Switchblade, Fale etc. Haven't checked those out yet. Here's part 1 of Jay White's

Former WWE wrestlers Enzo Amore and Big Cass made an appearance at Saturday's ROH-NJPW G1 Supercard show at MSG that might not be their last.

We are told the appearance was a work, but it's unknown if the duo has signed a deal with Ring of Honor or New Japan Pro Wrestling but more likely the former.

Following the IWGP tag team title match with the Guerillas of Destiny, Villain Enterprises, EVIL and SANADA, and the Briscoes, Enzo and Cass jumped the rail and started throwing punches with the Briscoes and then Bully Ray. Security, however, didn't get involved.

The action wasn't shown on the broadcast nor on the video boards inside the arena. Fans booed the duo heavily.

The New Japan side of the show was fantastic. The ROH side just exposed why AEW is going to take their fans. But definitely watch this show and not that mediocre Wrestlemania card if you only have time for one long show.

See the Okada and White too. Ospreay and Cobb is good as well. The three way was very short so unfortunately wasn't what it could have been. The Bully Ray bullshit took up too much time. Bully Ray's hardcore lite shit is so boring. You can't do 1998 ECW spots in a world where GCW has guys bleeding all over the place with glass bumps.

I'd say

Cobb vs Ospreay ****

Rush vs Castle 0 stars

I didn't see the women's match because I don't care about ROH women.

Street Fight 0 stars

Dragon Lee vs Bandido vs Ishimori ***1/2 because it was far too short. It was about 10 minutes when it should have been 20.

G.O.D. vs PCO & Brody vs Briscos vs Sanada & Evil ***3/4 That powerbomb PCO took at the end was fucking brutal. He has a death wish.

ZSJ vs Tanahashi *** Could have been better but okay.

Ibushi vs Naito ***** A must see. Ibushi was over like a true superstar.

Lethal vs Scurll vs Tavern ladder match *** It was okay. Lethal had a great elbow drop through a table that would make Macho Man proud.

White vs Okada ****3/4 A must see but not quite as good as the Ibushi match. The last 10 minutes were great with Kevin Kelly channeling Jim Ross and going nuts. Okada is a master at laying out a match and White held his end of the bargain just fine (although he's no Kenny.)
