I watched it on the World stream as it happened and it was electric! My big worry was about how the match would be received by people who already knew it was a draw. If you already know it's going 60 minutes... Are you as invested? For some matches it makes no difference of course. Styles vs Joe vs Daniels for example.

But I think a match like Okada vs Suzuki is ruined if you already know the result, because it's essentially a 40 minute attempt at tricking you into thinking Suzuki is going to win.

I wish that I could watch it live. It would be even more fun watching a classic match. But I was very invested in the match although I knew the result.

I rarely get matches live so I'm habitual of seeing them later when I get to download it. I prefer keeping them and seeing them whenever I want to.

I watched Dominion later in the day unspoiled, but I was on the end of a really long work week, and by the end of the show I was pretty burned out. Okada/Omega II did seem paced a bit better in the first half than the 1/4 match, but the end stretch wasn't as electrically engaging. I'd have to check it out a second time to give a proper rating but I feel safe saying that It was a top ten match in the world this year.

And Hiromu/KUSHIDA was better than their 1/4 match but still runs second behind the Super Junior final for best junior match in the company this year.

Yes, I would've liked Ibushi in as Tiger Mask W, then perhaps reveal himself/get unmasked mid-match when he would face Kenny. What a moment that would've been. But it's of no real consequence.

I'm extremely curious to see how Zack fares in this, especially when he goes up against the top guys in his block. Him vs Okada or Tanahashi will be amazing (for me, maybe not the usual fan haha).

I would prefer Kenny Omega making a sort of history and winning the G1 Climax for the second consecutive time leading to a trilogy at Wrestle Kingdom 12 where Omega finally defeats Okada for the title.

Don't make Okada win it as it's not required. Would like to see a match between Elgin and Ishii. Also, Omega Vs. Elgin. The latter would be apt as a final as well. Or Omega Vs. Tanahashi.

Last night's "Best in the World" ppv from ROH adds a little dynamic to New Japan's upcoming G1 Special next month. At the ppv last night, Cody, AKA Cody Rhodes, cleanly pinned Christopher Daniels to become ROH World Champion. As a result, Cody could potentially make history as being the first man to be ROH and IWGP Champion simultaneously if he beats Okada at the G1 Special.

I'm expecting some sort of screwy finish for this match. I don't see Cody Rhodes losing, or at least losing clean, barely more than a week after winning the first World Championship of his career but I can also imagine the backlash online if Cody beats Okada. However, if Cody is able to deliver a performance unlike anything we've seen out of him, and deliver something somewhat akin to an Okada vs. Omega outing, then it'd take a lot of sting out of the backlash. Since Cody is now ROH World Champion, I wouldn't be at all surprised if their match goes to a time limit draw like Okada vs. Omega II and Cody has a huge opportunity to jack up his standing to being a legit main eventer if he's able to post a strong showing against Okada.

Happy to see Cody win a World Championship.

However, I can't even imagine him going over Kazuchika Okada. I can't see NJPW giving a newcomer a big win over the best NJPW has today. No way. Can't blame them either. Kenny Omega couldn't do it and Cody is too new to do so. It would be a bad decision if it actually happened.

Jesus... Has Cody ever had a match over 3 stars? What was his match with Daniels like?

If he beats Okada... I'll cry. (I'm SUPER high right now lol)

Eh. He isn't that bad. I do remember multiple memorable matches from him. So he isn't as bad as you're making him out. Atleast not for me. Opinions vary though.

I still can't imagine NJPW giving Cody a win over Okada.
