Подобен round-robin турнир се провежда за първи път в историята на федерацията, ако не ме лъже паметта. Определено звучи обещаващо, макар и да няма интригата на G1 Climax, просто защото няма дори и капка история около турнира, но изобщо няма да се оплаквам. На фона на другите неща в NOAH през последната година това за мен лично е едно от най-интересните неща и има потенциала да бъде доста солидно турнирче. Не изключвам изненадите като възможност, но според мен други освен Morishima, Akiyama & Rikio (в тази подредба) нямат шансове за победа. Ще се следи!

и двата блока са доста силни, ако трябва да изразя лични предпочитания - Блок Б звучи доволно добре. Впрочем в този блок може и да цъфне някой MOTYC, кой знае. Може и в А, де, но все пак изрично казах, че се отклонявам за секунда към личната си преценка. Наистина NOAH трябва да прибегнат към подобни трикове за освежаване на федерацията... впрочем каква по-добра промяна, от малко качествени мейн евенти :) nWoHulkster™ е изредил основните претенденти за спечелване на турнира, но лично аз бих рискувал и заложил на Саито... обаче той имаше някаква котузия на ръката, мисля, така че изглежда надали предположението ми има почва, върху която да стъпи.

Takeshi Rikio has not recovered from the injury he sustained on 8/14, and today it was confirmed that he will miss the Shiny Navigation '07 tour. It remains to be seen whether he is replaced in the title shot tournament, or if he forfeits his remaining matches.

8.GHC Heavyweight Title Shot Tournament - Block B: Takeshi Morishima [2] beat Go Shiosaki [0] (18:08) with a backdrop.

Добър старт за Morishima с тази победа над Shiosaki.Аз поне се надявам той да спечели турнира,защото според мен вече е готов за титлата на Misawa ;) Иначе жалко,че Rikio ще пропусне турнира.Надявах се контузията му да е лека и да е готов за това шоу,но за жалост явно няма да участва по-нататък като според мен е по-добре да му намерят заместник ;)

Ето го и класирането за сега:

Block A:

Naomichi Marufuji [2]

Mohammed Yone [2]

Masao Inoue [0]

Akitoshi Saito [0]

*Takeshi Rikio [2] - той получи контузия в шоуто на 14 и няма да продължи участието си в турнира

Block B:

Takeshi Morishima [2]

Jun Akiyama [0]

Tamon Honda [0]

Takashi Sugiura [0]

Go Shiosaki [0]

Ебаси много са ми сложни регламентите с тия блокове за този турнир и за климакса може ли някой накратко да ми обясни регламента на турнира,че се обърках. :ph34r:

Победа (независимо каква) = 2 точки

Загуба (независимо каква) = 0 точки

Non-finish (double dq, double countout, draw, etc) = 1 точка

Всеки се бие срещу всеки от групата си. Първите двама с най-много точки от групата отиват на полуфинали - вторият от едната група срещу първият от другата, и обратно. Финал.
