G1 Climax tournament Matches

Zack Sabre Jr vs Sanada

  • This match starts off with some very good wrestling with trading holds and submissions but Sanada seems to get the upper hand early which starts to frustrate Zack Sabre Jr. Rocky Romero says “It’salmost like the world of sport” as both guys rest at the five minute mark. A few minutes later they both trade submissions and rollups until Sanada pinned Zack with a reversal of a rollup with a bridge. Really good match and great wrestling. Winner Sanada.

Tetsuya Naito vs Juice Robinson

  • Naito goes straight after the broken hand of Juice, Juice sells very well as it is played up that Juice can’t use the left hand but his opponents can attack it.

Juice reverses a top rope Rana with a sunset bomb and hits the jackhammer suplex. Juice hits a fall away slam from the second rope, followed by a cannonball and a powerbomb for a good nearfall. Naito reverses Juice’s Juice Box into a Destino which Juice kicked out of but Naito hit another and it was all over. Winner Tetsuya Naito.

Tama Tonga vs Kenny Omega

  • Tonga Loa and Bad Luck Fale say to English Commentary that they are there to “make sure no on interferes” as Tonga Loa said. They all jump Kenny Omega before the bell. Chase and Hangman come down to help Kenny and eventually this ends up in the ring with Kenny and Tama. All other Bullet Club members get sent back, away from the ring. After a few minutes of wrestling between Tama and Kenny, Tonga Loa comes out to help Tama. This all leads to Tama teasing the Styles Clash on a chair but Red Shoes kicks the chair away and shouts at Tama, letting him know he’s had enough of the BCOGs. Tama hits the referee Red Shoes with a Gun Stun for a DQ. The BC Firing Squad attack Kenny and wrap a chair around his neck threatening to give him a Gun Stun with the chair. Kota, Hangman and Chase rundown to save Kenny. Winner Kenny Omega

Tomohiro Ishii vs Hirooki Goto

  • These two start hard and heavy with chops, forearms and more strikes. Both guys knock the hell out of each other as Rocky Romero shouts over the crowd “what a match up, what a fight!” Ishii hits a huge stalling brainbuster from the second rope for a good nearfall. Moments later, Hirooki Goto makes a comeback, dropping Ishii over his knee then a clothesline. Goto hits the reverse GTR but Ishii reverses the front GTR.
