    Will Ospreay vs Dowie James from MCW Vendetta. I don't watch much Australian wrestling so this was my first time seeing Dowie James. He's really good and this match is awesome.

    Heres's a link

    Just watched Mayu Iwatani vs Momo Watanabe from the Stardom 9th anniversary show. Great match. I have it in my top 5 right now. Go out of your way to watch it. It's floating around if you want to see it.

    Just watch some stuff.

    Shingo Takagi vs Tomohiro Ishii from today's Korakuen was exactly what you'd expect meaning you should go watch it.


    Will Ospreay vs ZSJ from last week's Rev Pro show. Amazing match. Even better than their match earlier this month in NJPW. 2nd best match I've seen this year. Seek it out ASAP.

    I actually meant to ask about the ZSJ/Ospreay match. I got the result spoiled for me, so I wanted to find out whether it was worth watching before diving in.

    As if I had to ask.

    I am so happy with the finish. I didn't know how it would end and you rarely get such a decisive victory. I could say more but I'd hate to spoil it for anyone.

    It’s not going to be anyone’s MOTY but the Naito/EVIL/Shingo vs Ishii/Ospreay/Yoshi-Hashi match from Today’s Nakanishi retirement show was really good

    There are no MOTYC on the show, but Stardom's No People Gate show in an empty Korakuen Hall was really fun.

    It was shown for free on youtube

    Daniel Bryan vs Drew Gulak was a truly unique match. I don't do star ratings very well but it's a match I can't wait to see again. So glad the fans didn't ruin it.

    2. okada/ibushi, tokyo dome
    3. daniel bryan vs. drew gulak, elimination chamber
    4. omega/page vs. young bucks
    5. jon moxley vs. darby allin, aew title match

    bryan vs. gulak from smackdown a very close runner up
