The classic tale of dog vs cat. Considering how sick Ishii/Desperado was, this should be fucking bonkers.

So basically at the end of round two the remaining contenders consist of 3 members of Los Ingobernables, a jobber and a man who may have well held up a sign after winning tonight saying I'm not winning this tournament.

I understand they're short staffed with Corona, but really with the exception of Takahashi, who they teased a match with before Corona shut NJPW down, who else in Los really have any reason to fight Naito. Why did they decide to start the build to the inevitable Tag Team title match in the first round when the 4 competitors could have easily ran this storyline in the later rounds and in to the quarter and possibly even semi finals.

It's bad enough it's a damn near foregone conclusion that EVIL is going to be in the finals, but given the eight people remaining It's really hard to see the winner being anyone other than Takahashi or Okada

to clarify I guess, I wasn’t saying EVIL isn’t a good choice, my complaint was more I was watching the second round match between him and Goto and could realise whoever won that match is likely going to be in the finals.

The problem is I shouldn't be expecting this round fucking 2, especially since his run to the final includes matches with Yoshi fucking Hashi and either Taichi or fucking Sanada

There's still SANADA, who's the only one in LIJ without a belt, has been built as a possible main event threat for quite some time, has his own trademarked redemption arc going on, and has also been built as a rival for Okada who he can only face at the finals. SANADA has a more than solid case for winning and I hate it.

Yoshi Hashi fucking sucks

>shit gear
>shit gimmick, some Chinese monkey king shit? No wonder the japanese don't like him
>can't draw money
>can't draw period https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J21jfH3Qt7o&
>weird face like he's in pain or needs to take a shit
>looks totally bored even during his entrance
>low energy
>physique that makes Chuck Taylor look like a gym rat
>His nickname is "Loose Explosion", which is pretty accurate because every time he comes out it's like someone just took a massive shit in the ring

The only thing he's good at is taking pins. He's the biggest waste of time in New Japan.

To be fair he did look like a geek during the segment, but if he absolutely fucking destroys Douki during the match then it'll all be worth it. He needs to prove that anime is real.
