MATCH RATING:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4




Again like night one the singles matches were absolutely phenomenal. The tag matches were slightly better, while some seemed like filler, others did tell a story and built to upcoming shows. The Best Of The Super Junior tournament is just around the corner and I did enjoy the tag match involving Ospreay, Dragon Lee, Ishimori and the new meme era of the Bullet Club El Phantasmo. His inclusion in this years BOSJ is very exciting and he provided a small glimpse of what we can expect from him in this years tournament. A big win over Ospreay was the perfect way to start his career in Japan. It does seem we will be getting a rematch for the IC title as Naito’s challenge was accepted by Ibushi. The two will now face off once more  at Dominion. There was no surprise that Evil and Ishii would have a hard hitting contest, my only problem is Evil did not win. He has a great character and if pushed could be a top star for this company. It was pretty obvious that Okada would retain. However these two still managed to make me believe there could be a chance the title could change hands. There is also no doubt in my mind that Sanada will one day be the IWGP champion. The big surprise was saved right till the very end as we found out who would be the next challenger for Okada and it is no other than  Chris Jericho !!! That is another match that is set for Dominion.  This was a great show because of the last two matches and the feuds they are setting up are all very interesting.
