G1 Climax Tournament Matches

Scoring system for the G1:

  • Win: 2 Points
  • Draw: 1 Point
  • Loss: 0 Points

Shingo Takagi vs Taichi

  • This starts with a jump starts by Taichi but Shingo fights back early. Taichi uses his microphone stand to get the upper hand, then takes it to ringside. Taichi wears down Shingo for a few minutes and it was slow and plodding. At the ten minute call Shingo is looking for a pumping bomber lariat but is met with one from Taichi. Taichi has controlled most of this match and the pace wasn’t picking up until Shingo drops Tachi on his neck for a good nearfall, then the crowd started chanting. Taichi continues to cut off Shingo but Shingo continues to fight. Shingo get the fans behind him as he hits the Last of the Dragons on Taichi to win. The last few minutes were quite good but it went far too long for a match with mostly Taichi in control. Winner: Shingo Takagi in 14:40

Juice Robinson vs Jeff Cobb

  • This starts with a handshake and a lock up. They fight to ringside as Robinson takes it to Cobb with running dropkicks in the corner. Cobb catches Juice and suplexs him outside. Juice throws Cobb into the barrier and tries to spear Cobb on his way back in the ring but Cobb catches him and gut-wrenches Juice across the ring. Cobb shows his power but launching Juice all over the ring. Cobb puts Juice on the top rope and tries a superplex but Juice escapes and powerbombs Cobb off the second rope. Juice goes for Pulp Friction but its reversed. Just after the ten minute call, Juice tries the Pulp Friction again but is caught when he jumps and is German suplexed three times. Cobb tried Tour of the Islands but Juice escapes. Juice takes another German suplex and a Tour of the Islands. Cobb pins Juice after his finisher for his first two points. Winner: Jeff Cobb in 13:21.

Toru Yano vs “Switchblade” Jay White

  • This is all just comedy stuff. It starts with Yano running to ringside and taking the turnbuckle pad off. They fought over low blows and Gedo go in the ring. While the ref is taking Gedo out of the ring, Yano take the knuckle duster and hits a low blow and roll up to win. Winner: Toru Yano in 3:04.

Hirooki Goto vs Tetsuya Naito

  • Naito gets in the face of Goto before the bell and obviously annoys Goto as Hirooki Goto wraps his shirt around the neck of Naito and stomps on him to get the jump start. This goes to ringside early on as Goto throws Naito around ringside and into the barriers. Naito makes a comeback and snaps the leg of Goto over the ring apron. From there, Naito works over the knee of Goto, modifying his offence to target the knee. Goto stops the Destino and delivers a neckbreaker, leaving both men down. Goto works over Naito with short kicks, followed by hard kicks to the chest. Goto beat the hell out of Naito, but Naito turned a GTR into a DDT and hits two Destinos to win. Winner: Tetsuya Naito in 14:00

Tomohiro Ishii vs Jon Moxley

  • This starts with both men face-to-face, they get backed off and the bell sounds. They start hammering at each other. Moxley gets the upper hand and takes it to ringside. They fight through the fans and Moxley slams Ishii off the East sign and they Moxley attacks Ishii more in the crowd and all over Korakuen Hall. Moxley beats the hell out of Ishii with strikes but Ishii fires up when he takes a chop. Moxley continues to beat on Ishii until Ishii fights back with shoulder tackles. Ishii takes it to ringside and Moxley takes Ishii into the barriers and gets two chairs. Moxley gives a chair to Ishii and they smash the chairs against each other in an amazing spot. The chairs smash and bits fly off then Moxley throws his at Ishii. Moxley get a table from underneath the Ring and sets it up at ringside. After teasing the table, they leave for a moment but Ishii places Moxley on the table and the Stone Pitbull, Ishii, jumps off the top rope, to the floor and splashes Moxley through the table. Ishii gives Moxley a superplex to bring Moxley in. Somehow Moxley fights back and the crowd are loving it. Moxley bites Ishii and the crowd boos a minute later Moxley calls for Deathrider(Doube arm DDT) but Ishii backdrops out of it. They are on hands and knees as they crawl at each other and begin to headbutt each other. At the end, they fight over a Deathrider and a Brainbuster but it was Moxley with an elevated Deathrider to win. Winner: Jon Moxley in 20:36.

After the match Moxley cut a promo thanking Tokyo and Tomohiro Ishii. Moxley claims a few months before this his career was “in the toilet bowl” and then he was welcomed to NJPW and Japan. He now has the canvas to paint “Ugly” and “Gruesome” pictures on. Moxley says no-one can tell him what he can and can’t do but him, then he claims he will in the G1. Moxley says backstage that his wife will be “so mad” at him, then says “she hates tables and shit” then Moxley says it was all Ishii’s fault because he started it and walks off.

*Final thoughts: Another great night of G1 action from Korakuen Hall. Maybe not the best night of the tour but that is incredibly difficult to do with such an amazing lineup throughout. The main event was by far the best match and I personally felt the Shingo vs Taichi match was a bit underwhelming given how good Shingo is. Also, Suzuki continues to reign with an iron fist in tag matches.
