Thumbs Up


This was fun, especially after the Honma-Naito interactions in tag matches on this tour.

This was held under NJPW elimination match rules where you tag in and out and eliminations can come by pinfall, submission, DQ or being thrown over the top rope.

***1/2

Thumbs In The Middle Pointing Up

There were three ref bumps and three different referees in this match. If Bullet Club shenanigans aren't your thing, you can skip this.


Overall: Thumbs Up
