Yuji Nagata will enter the 2007 G1 Climax as IWGP Heavyweight Champion after surviving a blood-soaked war with Togi Makabe today. Nagata bypassed his V2 defense in the same building he defeated Makabe back in May to win the New Japan Cup. Before kickoff, there were big "Togi" calls, which became dueling "Togi" and "Nagata" calls after the bell. Thus began a war which saw Makabe cut up Nagata's face with scissors early on and control much of the first half. Nagata fought back and Makabe bled even worse, his entire hair dyed red and the doctor having to get in the ring briefly. Nagata hit a Shining Wizard for two, then a backdrop for one, Makabe standing stubbornly. After some slapping, Nagata landed a high kick, then one to the face for another near fall. Finally, Nagata dunked the barely conscious Makabe with a backdrop to finish him off and shatter Makabe's dreams for the second time this year. Nagata responded to large "Nagata" chants after the match by grabbing the microphone. He thanked fans and said that it appears the scaffolding of New Japan has been solidified at last. With the IWGP Heavyweight Title, he told fans he would advance on Sumo Hall, then wants them to join him at the Tokyo Dome. Makabe promised next time he challenges for the title, it would become his property. Despite losing, Makabe remains the biggest breakout star of 2007 in Japan so far, and will look to continue getting his name to the world during the G1.

After much waiting, New Japan's world famous junior division finally has a young ace. 28-year-old Ryusuke Taguchi ended the drought of young trueborn juniors holding the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title by controlling his third battle with Minoru, making CTU (minus Goto in Mexico) a "no title" group as the countdown to their break-up continues. The two were 1-1 going into this, but despite just missing out on the Super Jr. final this year, wins in that tournament over Minoru, Samurai, and Kanemoto had shown how far Taguchi has come since debuting five years ago. In what was described as one of the best matches of the year, Taguchi fought through an arm injury, surviving Minoru's jujigatames and several of his pinning moves, before hitting a dropkick, German suplex hold, and finally the Dodon to live out his dream. Samurai Gym leader, El Samurai, and member Yujiro got in the ring and embraced Taguchi after the match, while the other chase, to regain the Samurai Gym signboard, ended, as Minoru handed it back to the group. Taguchi told the fans that his time for pulling the junior division had arrived, and that Samurai Gym is here to stay. The "Taguchi" calls wouldn't cease and of course he treated the fans to the Tag Dance.

Dick Togo & TAKA Michinoku survived their first challenge as IWGP Jr. Tag Team Champions, beating Kanemoto & Wataru in something of a sprint today. Lots of back and forth action ended when TAKA drilled Wataru with the Michinoku Driver II, the belts still in enemy hands. Wataru was borderline violent backstage, criticizing himself for never being able to win the important matches - such as this one, his various IWGP Jr. challenges, and of course this year's Super Jr. final. Kanemoto said he understood Wataru's mental state, but still thinks they will be the team to return the belts to New Japan. Before the fifth match, BJW star Daisuke Sekimoto intruded, introducing himself because he and Nakanishi will battle in the same building on LOCK UP's 7/29 show. Sekimoto said he would catch Nakanishi's head on the 29th and asked New Japan fans for their support. He went to the commentary booth and it was time for Hiroshi Tanahashi's long awaited return, the previous IWGP Heavyweight Champion making his first appearance since May 1st. He and Nakamura started the match, Tanahashi showing little ring rust that made it hard to believe he's been out for over two months and had an operation in that time. However, it was a common story when Yamamoto was caught and pinned, falling to Nakamura's Landslide. Sekimoto got into the ring after the match and started a brawl with Nakanishi, heating up their much delayed singles match. Chono also returned, although return matches for Chono are quite common. His trios match saw Milano step back into the heavyweight division in preparation for this year's G1, and Orlando Jordan also make his New Japan return. With Honma in the ring, the winner - or rather the loser - was never in much doubt, and it was the returning Chono who pinned the very unpopular semi-GBH member, who was booed before he even did anything today.

Изглежда ми като наистина обещаващ ивент. Не съм убеден, че ще намеря време да изгледам цялото шоу, но има няколко мача, за които ако намеря линкове със сигурност ще ги видя какво представляват.

Masahiro Chono Return Match и Hiroshi Tanahashi Return Match по специално ми се виждат доста обещаващи. Мисля, че с изключение на един или двама кечисти (Tomoaki Honma и Manabu Nakanishi) всичките съм ги чувал, което за мен си е плюс. Е присъствието на Orlando Jordan ще ми е малко... Абе, ще го преживея някак си. Тези два мача със сигурност бих искал да ги видя.

МЕ естествено също не бих го пропуснал. Явно е станал здрав мач и ще трябва да му хвърля едно око.

Останалите мачове от карда също изглеждат обещаващи, но в тях не са ми известни чак такава част от участващите. Jado Return Match сигурно ще е забавен. Между другото някой може ли да ми каже къде точно са били всичките тези кечисти, че правят Return Matches?

Като цяло шоуто изглежда масивно. Коментар за мачовете като ги гледам! :)
