Why isn't Shibata still eligible? He beat Tanahashi and Nakamura.

EDIT- I think I just realized why.

Wow, that's really all or nothing for Fale is looks like. He's either in the finals, or he's out.

I wished Naito was in with a shout but this has been a very good tournament. I didn't see all of last year so can't tell you if it's any better or worse but very good this year.

Will see, BTW, Greg also won the Radioinfluence.com G-1 prediction game between he, myself & Rob Pandola, who all did the G-1 preview show, picking out the matches. He went 68-42, I went 67-43 and Rob went 65-45.

Day 9 & 10 podcast review coming later tonight as well on Radioinfluence.com.

I WIN, BITCHES!!!

Anyway, I'm less than thrilled that the participants of the finals were included in a Wrestleview headline. So much for my attempts to stay unspoiled.

Well, the three of us will be reviewing the finals, in what will likely be a 3+ hour podcast, and I'll probably brag about it approximately 100 times. Otherwise, nothing. Prediction games are stupid.
