Radican’s Analysis: This is a nice lineup ahead of the G1 Climax taking place next weekend. There are several title matches on the card that make this feel like more than just a showcase event for NJPW in Australia. Ospreay vs. Eagles for the Jr. Hvt. title should be tremendous and I expect it to steal the show. Romero and Phantasmo had a fantastic match during the BOSJ tournament earlier this year, so I expect this match for the British Cruiserweight Championship to be really good as well.
