We had fun predicting the Cruiserweight Classic. So, let’s predict the Super-J Cup, too!

Go here to fill out your brackets (challonge.com). Include your the-w username somewhere in the title of your submission.

Submissions accepted until midnight (Eastern) on July 20 (five and a half hours before the first round kicks off).

Point values for correct picks double with each round: 1, 2, 4 and 8 (for the finals).

I’m not prepared to handle substitutions, so let’s cross our fingers that nobody gets hurt (let’s cross our fingers for that either way).

Tiebreaker #1: bell-to-bell match time for the tournament finals (and only the finals)
Tiebreaker #2: COMBINED bell-to-bell match time for the two semifinals (and only the semifinals)

Closest (either over or under) to the actual match times, as reported on www.njpw.co.jp, wins the tiebreaker(s).

Either post your tiebreakers in this thread with spoiler tags, or PM them to me. Mine are below.

Let me know if any questions.

Tiebreaker #1: 20:15
Tiebreaker #2: 36:53

Friendly reminder before we start complaining about the Draft: two hours and change left to join. Right now, it's me and three big guns, who will surely make me look foolish. You can too. Nothing more fun that filling out brackets. CWC got 14 entries...let's get 10.

Bummer. I don't think I can make picks. It won't let me.

Congrats. Final point standings...

Thanks for participating.

I'd say I overthought my picks, but that'd be like saying I overthought quantum mechanics after reading a wikipedia summary article.

As for the show itself, I enjoyed it overall, but I was not at all expecting all of the Attitude-era style booking. Was hoping for a more wrestling-based focus. But anyway, I really liked Ospreay/Sydal, the finals and Young Bucks/MCMG.

I watched most of the show live and it really wasn't worth the effort. It was a matter of expectations - I was expecting high end junior matches, and they were going with Kushida conquering evil to win. They told their story fine, I just realized I had no interest in seeing it around 3AM.
