I'm doing the Fierce Females show. A Sunday is helpful to me so I'm game. I don't know the product enough to shell out on the on demand but a good show there will sell me on it.

Gisele Shaw had a weird performance at Fight Club Pro in April. Started botchy and then ended up turning in one of the best performances of the weekend. I'm interested to see if that level of inconsistency is a thing.

Oh, DTTI night 3 is on the Fight Club Pro Unlimited service. The LAX/Lucha Bros sprint and four way for the title are well worth seeing.

As expected the Shingo vs Ishimori Block A decider can be filed under "must see"
Loved it. Dragon Lee vs Scurll was pretty good as well.

Haven’t listened much to JR’s podcast with Conrad, but the Owen episode from last week is worth a listen. Difficult at times, you can tell how much it affected him, but it’s interesting yo get his account of the night.

I'm enjoying the new format with Jr and Conrad. A lot less "youngsters should slow down" and all that repetitive stuff.

It's been a good weekend of wrestling for me.

Last set of BOSJ Block B matches tomorrow, finals night of Wednesday and Super ShowDown on Friday will be my viewing throughout the week. Should be some great matches coming out of those shows, maybe not from the Saudi show but you never know.

Listened to Moxley's 2nd Podcast today with PW Torch - they are careful not to tread old ground they spoke about with Jericho and it gives further insight into where he is.

He's definitely an interesting guy and his chat about Lesnar's match with him at Mania is a shame as they could have done so much if any party other than Ambrose just showed a bit of interest rather than calling it in.

Not interested in Moxley talking anymore. Time for action.

Wednesday we have:

Juice Robinson (C) vs Jon Moxley for the IWGP US HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Jay White.

Shingo Takagi vs Will Ospreay in the final of BOSJ 26. 

 

Probably add a load of tag matches featuring the rest of the guys from BOSJ as well but that final will be filthy.

Tough one. Undefeated Shingo really should win. However there's no chance that he's a junior and NJPW are obsessed with Ospreay.

Genuinely one of the most underrated wrestlers of the modern era. Was always in positions where he was overshadowed. Brilliant wrestler though.

Shingo is gonna win, win the belt, and lose the belt to SHO at the Dome.

I'd be very happy with that. I'm looking forward to the show tomorrow. Not sure if I'll watch all of it given the majority of the show is just thrown together tag matches but a few of them look fun.

Got that spectacularly wrong and I daresay so did NJ. SHO should have been the one to topple Shingo. Canny complain about a match that good.

Just seen they've added Moxley in the curtain jerker. I don't think I've ever seen his opponent before, I'd imagine it won't last long.

The BOSJ finale is one of the best matches I’ve ever seen. I could watch those two all day.

Becky Lynch absolutely destroying edge on twitter just now to the point of feeling slightly sorry for him. Utter massacre.
