I heard it was a 5 star match guaranteed and Stuart from puroresufan said it was one of the greatest matches in pro wrestling history. Can't wait to see it myself. I'm away from home on business so I couldn't order the iPPV live, but hopefully I can get the on demand this week at some point. Heard good things about Nakamura/Marufuji also

I'm interested to see what build there is to the tag match they announced for the Dome Show in January also, Nagata/Saku vs Daniel and Rolles Gracie

For sure a 5 star match and I agree that it is one of if not the greatest pro wrestling match of all time

Tanahashi and Okada was amazing. Meltzer hesitated to say it was the best of their series but I won't. I am bed ridden and sick for the past 2 days and could barely stay awake but that near 40 minute match kept me in to it the whole time. Just a perfect match in so many ways.

At this point, and with years to go, Tanahashi HAS to be a top 10 talent EVER. Phone Post

If anyone thinks that Tana isn't the best wrestler in the world right now then they're just wrong. Everything the man touches turns to gold and this feud with Okada has been the most compelling heavyweight wrestling I've seen in years. Calling him a top 10 all time talent is probably right on the money, and he's only 36 I believe, so plenty more greatness to come hopefully. I'm dying to see a rekindling of the rivalry with Nakamura now that Tana is going to be out of the IWGP title picture for a while. The prospect of both Okada/Naito and Tana/Nakamura at the Tokyo Dome makes my pants tight Phone Post

Agreed
Tana is for sure top 10 talent it's crazy how good he is

I also recently found out okada is only 25 to be doing what he is doing at that age is incredible he's not even in the prime of his life yet and he's putting some of the best matches ever Phone Post 3.0

Rumors ROlles and Daniel Gracie will face Nagat and Sakuraba at the Dome show. Be curious to see how this one goes if true

The Gracies were introduced at the iPPV the other day and issued an open challenge that was answered by Nagata and Saku after their match, so it's going to happen. It'll be interesting to see how it goes. A tag version of a match similar to the match Saku had with Nakamura a while back could tear the house down

Probably, but a guy can dream

And whether it's great or terrible, we'll at least be getting a potential match of the year in Naito/Okada, a high quality outing from Tana, and a IC title defense from Nakamura, so it will be a fantastic show with or without the tag match being good Phone Post
