Yup, and the results of the pickem:

Me - 8 points
Goober - 7 points
Greg - 6 points

I am maxed out however, with Shibata being eliminated. If Tetsuya Naito beats Kota Ibushi, then I can no longer win. No real standout matches from the quarters I felt, Goto/Shibata was good for what it was, as was Naito/Fale, probably the best match of the show is CHAOS/Bullet Club, best match of the tourney probably Ibushi/Yano.

Toru Yano had the best 6 minutes of wrestling ever, in his two NJC matches. Ever

I still can't get over that the crowd popped for a possible hair pull, roll up spot, solely because that type shenanigans got Tanahashi in Round 1.

Not solely cause of that. The crowd always pops for that spot. But they really thought Ibushi might get pinned by it. The frantic energy of "Can Yano steal another one?" was fantastic

OMG, Tanahashi's revenge on Yano at the G1 is going to be tremendous.

Invasion Attack. Yano always gets murdered at Invasion Attack for his NJC transgressions. Yano will beat Tanahashi AGAIN, in the G1 Climax
