Really not liking the finish to the show/main event. I get why you do that in theory with what Jericho has coming up and also wanting to do something different but it just looked… bad. On top of that Okada came out of it looking kinda bad despite winning, which is like the bizarro version of what Okada matches are like, where he always manages to win and make his opponent look great. Why not just have a long, gruelling, physical street fight, where both guys put on a show, give the crowd what they want and then let that be it? Unless they’re planning on a rematch later on it just seems like a really poor compromise from a booking perspective.
Other than that I thought this was a great show, though it didn’t have the same high points that last years Dominion had. I thought the undercard/midcard matches were all really good, the Jr match was crisp, well executed and well paced, though I thought it could’ve been a bit longer. The IC match… Look, I love Ibushi and I think Naito is a genius, but I hate watching those two wrestle each other, because they always end up doing shit that is just waaaay too dangerous. These guys are both 36 years old, and they should know far better by now. Will Ospreay is 24 years old and even he figured out that it’s not worth risking your life with stupid dangerous spots, and there is no excuse for them continuing to do this. It’s the same problem I’ve had with some of the Naito/Omega matches in the past where they go out of their way to do risky stuff that doesn’t even look that good.
Overall, a very good show, but man those last 2 matches just frustrated the hell out me, because they could’ve been so much better and they were kinda ruined for me by creative decisions that I think undersell the talent that was in the ring.
