I feel you Norway when Dida lost I wasn't at all exicted about Dream anymore. But then I saw Aoki vs JZ 2 and I remembered that even when your boy gets knocked out the reason to love Dream is the depth of it's LW divison and the great match ups they can put together. Think about it Aoki, Kawajiri, Uno, and Alvarez are still left. Think about the match ups that can be made.
The main reason I'm stoked is that I think Alvarez might be the 2nd best LW in the world right now and he just needs to prove that by winining this tournament.
