Some thoughts: The tag matches were pretty fun. You have the team of Nakajima and Yano who will fight in Block B at the next show. Shibata and Honma appear set to have an issue and will also fight at the next show. Tetsuya Naito injured Yuji Nagata's leg post-match so it will interesting to see how healthy Nagata will be going into the match on 7/22.
Tenzan/Ishii was a physical match and both men put on a great perfomance. Makabe/Tonga was pretty good as well. Goto/Fale was the David and Goliath match with Goto felling the big man. SANADA and Tanahashi was a great match with an outcome that I certainly didn't expect. Marufuji and Okada was very good as well. I've never seen Marufuji before but I have to believe that he has the stiffest chops in the business. He lit Okada up after 3 or 4. There's also a kick in there towards the end that looked brutal!
There's my impressions of Night 1. Night 2 is coming up on Friday so I will be back with results of Night 2 from Korakuen Hall in Tokyo! Have a great evening!
