I just looked at the UStream channel and it appears that they've raised the price to $35 now. Ehhh.
NJPW has been reading the buzz online and decided to cash in on it. Me, I'm waiting until it shows up on youtube in a couple days or buy it from IVP for way less.
Unfortunately, so am I. I was more than willing to buy it, but it was when I was going to split it with a buddy, but that ain't happening anymore. When I have a bit more money to go around, I'll buy an iPPV just for me.

Well, there was that rumor of Okada being America bound for WWE which I originally didn't put much stock in.
The only other thing I can think of is that Tanahashi has one more IWGP record to break, and that's for the most days as champion. According to wikipedia, Hiroshi Tanahashi is at 1,141 days right now as IWPG champion considering all his reigns as champ. The current record holder Keiji Mutoh is at 1,238 days as champ between 4 reigns as Keiji Mutoh and The Great Muta. Tanahashi only has 98 days to go to have that record broken.
My prediction is that a month or so after that record is broken, Tanahashi falls to the Machine Gun.
