it was a good show but, for an event that always leaves me thinking that i've the best wrestling show of the year four days in, it was a little disappointing. it had a good amount of matches i loved (ospreay/ibushi, ishii/zsj, co-mains) but the middle of the show felt kind of rushed with nearly all those matches running ~10 minutes long, i would have liked to have some of those get more time to breathe. every title changing hands was crazy but so many of the endings felt predictable because of the need to write off the AEW crew (plus the i guess wwe bound kushida?) before any collaboration deal is in place. i also really did not like cody/juice. still a very good show, with a lot of really memorable moments (the reveal of the return of okada's trunks legitimately got me so hyped), omega/tana is an early MOTY candidate, and i don't regret running on two hours of sleep for this today, but i wasn't entirely blown away like i almost always am. can't wait to see how new year's dash shakes things up, it's going to be fascinating.
