Hello WNW people, Mitch “Big M” Adams here. New Japan Pro Wrestling has begun its yearly G1 Climax tournament, and WNW is proud to announce that we will keep you informed on the proceedings. Results for all 19 shows of the tournament as well as standings for both blocks will be posted right here by yours truly.
Today’s question: Who do you think will win G1 Climax 27?
Standings For B Block Heading Into The Show
- Kazuchika Okada (6-0)
- Kenny Omega (5-1)
- EVIL (4-2)
- Minoru Suzuki (4-2)
- SANADA (4-2)
- Michael Elgin (2-4)
- Tama Tonga (2-4)
- Toru Yano (2-4)
- Juice Robinson (1-5)
- Satoshi Kojima (0-6)
Night Fourteen Results
Toru Yano def. Tama Tonga
Satoshi Kojima def. SANADA
Michael Elgin def. Minoru Suzuki
Juice Robinson def. Kenny Omega
Big M Reacts: This result shocked the crap out of me!
EVIL def. Kazuchika Okada
Big M Reacts: Another very surprising result. Okada still leads the B block though. However, I expect Okada may go under again in this tournament (possibly to Suzuki) before he faces Omega on day 18. I expect both Okada and Omega will have level score cards heading into that match in order for New Japan to add the extra drama of having a spot in the G1 Climax Final to it!
Stay tuned right here on WNW for results and news on G1 Climax 27.
