NJPW G1 Climax Final
One of the biggest events of the Japanese pro wrestling calendar is New Japan’s prestigious G1 Climax tournament. Twenty wrestlers battle it out in a month of matches hoping to come out on top of their block, with the winner of Block A facing the winner of Block B in the sure-to-be spectacular final on August 13. The tournament features an international collection of fighters including seasoned veterans and young up and coming stars. Can the current IWGP Heavyweight Champion “Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada maintain his lead and defeat last year’s G1 champion Kenny Omega, to place first in the B Block? Will fan favorite Tanahashi be able to take the top spot in Block A or will he succumb to the devious “Los Ingobernables” Tetsuya Naito, or even the fresh explosive talents of Zack Sabre Jr.? We’ll just have to wait and see!
