Overall Rating: 3/10. My first recent AJPW show. I didn't know what to expect, but the show overall was lacking. Nothing stands out here, and the only saving grace would have to be the 2nd to last match. Hopefully the shows pick up from here.
Also an update for the blog. I recently sustained an injury while playing baseball, so I am unable to type well. This will stop me from writing full reviews for a while, and instead just give ratings for matches on a show. I will be doing this for random shows, and not Smackdown, since I feel Smackdown should be full reviews. Thanks for understanding.
