I couldn't make up my mind. I'm such a novice at the current roster.

Fuck... As if Shibata/Goto matches weren't enough of a war as it is, now you want them to go in having already wrestled a big match earlier in the day. You're unkind, Jama.

So, after the 1st round, the scores are as follows:

Jason Namako - 7
Me - 7
Jama 7301 - 7
GooberBM - 6
Greg McNeish - 5

Jason, it is imperative that you pick the quarterfinals, semifinals and final in your next round of predictions.

It's nice that, unlike last year, my pick to win the tournament didn't lose in the very first match, or the very first show.

Seriously? Shelton Benjamin? That's why I'm behind? Son of a mother's whore

At least you'll get the solace of watching him get his from Shibata.

I only have one rationale for Nakamura not going passed the quarterfinals, I think he's going to win the G1 this year and face the IWGP Champion at the Tokyo Dome.

Whereas I called Nakamura walking into the G1 *AS* the IWGP Heavyweight Champion at least 6 months ago.

Wouldn't you pick him to win the Cup then though?

No. I'm figuring on Okada retaining until Back To Yokohama Arena, in late May, when he'll be in a position to tie the record for longest title reign (measured in defences). Whomever comes out of the NJC with a title shot, I'm expecting to lose.

Besides, Nakamura, inevitably, will fail miserably in the New Japan Cup. He's been a top favorite the last 3 years and made it out of the second round only once. I'm sure expecting Devitt to beat him here

I WANT TO MARK OUT. I didn't see the 1st round, I'm hoping to watch the quarters, semis and final though.

Can't be too careful. I hear there's a lawyer wandering around these parts.

No lawyer, just a student.
