Looks like one of the best BOSJ tournaments they've done in few years, look forward to the tape.


Its a pretty clear indication that Ultimo Dragon is not comming back to WWE when New Japan wont acknowledge him as being a WWE guy and he's working with a TNA contracted worker in Chris Daniels which the company forbids.

Bugger me... I forgot to keep updating this...


Well if you didn't know what happened here goes...


AmDragon, Liger and Kakihara qualified from Group A and Ultimo Dragon, Tiger Mask and HEAT got out of Group B....


Liger was attacked by Big Boss MA-G-MA's buddies during the match and damaged his lower vertabre so Koji replaced him in the knock out stages...


Koji then beat Ultimo Dragon with a reversal of the La Magistral, HEAT also beat Kakihara with his new 'HEAT-clutch', a new pinning leg cradle...


Koji then faced AmDragon and took him out with a modified ankle lock turning into a heel hook then also hyper extended the knee... Tiger Mask then took out HEAT, the IWGP Jr champion with a backslide to move to the final against Koji...


Then in the final Tiger turned it up against Koji and hit with a Tombstone, Millieum Suplex (Half nelson - half chickenwing plex, bad head drop) then with a Tiger Suplex hold for the three count and the tournement....
