As we all know, the spinning Tombstone is more powerful than a regular Tombstone, for… reasons? Wrestling!
I actually watched a New Japan show in a timely fashion, because the G1 Special aired on the Fight Network in Canada, and that channel was on free preview. That was a super fun show. I think it might be the first time I’ve watched an NJPW opening multi-man tag in 2017, which almost certainly wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been live on television. There’s too much wrestling, so I cherry pick a lot, and NJPW multi-man tags are an easy cut. The opener the G1 Special was a blast, though. It was like everyone decided to wrestle on fast forward. Also, Michael Elgin and Kenny Omega had a nearly five star match, so that was pretty rad.
