G1 Climax Tournament Matches

Scoring system for the G1:

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

Zack Sabre Jr vs Bad Luck Fale

  • Zack runs at Fale to begin the match. ZSJ gets the guillotine choke leading to a sleeper. Zack moves from limb to limb as he tries to pick apart Fale. Fale halts the submissions of Sabre and goes for a Bad Luck Fall but somehow ZSJ turns it into a Octopus lock. Fale takes this to ringside and beats up ZSJ all over the crowd area. Fale tries another Bad Luck Fall down the concrete steps but ZSJ slips out. ZSJ reverses a Granade from Fale into a triangle choke and holds Fale until the count of 13 then runs down to the ring. Fale is just too slow and gets counted out. Sabre Jr wins by count out for his first victory. Winner: Zack Sabre Jr in 6:31.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Lance Archer

  • Tanahashi takes it to Archer at the beginning to start the match. They quickly go to ringside and Archer chokeslams Tanahashi on the apron. Archer then comes flying off the apron a d hits a rolling senton on Tanahashi. Tanahashi chops Archer three times, then Archer chops back once to floor the ace, they repeat that a few times. The Korakuen fans chant “Go Ace” & “Archer”. They fight back and forth as Tana keeps targeting the leg of the big man. This gets very exciting as Archer looks for the EBD(Everybody Dies) Claw on Tanahashi but they end up with Tanahashi sat on the top rope. Archer places Tanahashi on his shoulders and walks into the middle of the ring, Tanahashi then victory rolls Archer up and pins him. Winner: Hiroshi Tanahashi in 11:59.

KENTA vs EVIL

  • This starts slow with a lock up but quickly picks up. After KENTA disrespects EVIL everyone boos. Then they fight to ringside, EVIL hits a chair off the head of KENTA and it leads to a backstage brawl. They head back into the crowd, EVIL clears a space and piles chairs but KENTA suplexs EVIL on them. Everyone starts to boo Kenta so he begs it on. They head back to the ring and KENTA beats down EVIL with kicks. EVIL tries to fight back but is shut down until EVIL reversed a GTS into a German suplex. Fighting back, EVIL hits an Everything is Evil for a two. They are both worn down and visibly tired but KENTA hits a running knee for a two, followed by another. KENTA then hits a PK followed by a GTS and pins EVIL. That was a fun fight, leaving KENTA with eight points. Winner: KENTA in 15:04.

Kota Ibushi vs SANADA

  • This starts with some mat wrestling followed up with some fast takeovers and headlocks. Fans chant for both so Ibushi and SANADA get on the ropes and try to see who gets the more chants, it seems pretty even. They spend alot of the first five minutes playing to the crowd which is great to watch as the fans get very worked up. When Ibushi is doing something the fans cheer for him, when SANADA does something they cheer for him. Kota takes some chops then kicks SANADA to the mat. Ibushi goes for a standing moonsault but SANADA gets the knees up. At the ten minute call Ibushi hits his powerslam into second rope moonsault, Ibushi holds his knee. SANADA goes for sliding dropkick but Kota lands a double stomp. They trade strikes and SANADA seems to get the upper hand but Inushi fires back and foes for a Kamigoye but SANADA moves. After a struggle, Kota picks up SANADA and lawn darts him in the corner and they play up SANADA’s neck issues. Finally, after much back and forth, Kota Ibushi hits the Kamigoye to pin SANADA. Hell of a match by these two great wrestlers. Winner: Kota Ibushi in 19:15

Kazuchika Okada vs Will Ospreay

  • This starts with a lockup and for the first few minutes they trade holdson the mat but then Ospreay rolls backwards, using his feet he throws Okada over him. Okada rolls outside. Okada hits a dropkick on Will when he is sat in the corner on the top rope, sending Ospreay outside. Ospreay rolls in selling his shoulders, back and neck. Okada works over the neck of Ospreay but Will keeps fighting. Will chops Okada but Okada doesn’t sell it, then Okada hits Ospreay and Will goes down. Ospreay fights back using speed and bounces off the ropes to hit a kick. This got really good as they trade bigger shots and bigger moves. They fight to ringside as Ospreay kicks Okada off the apron. At ringside Ospreay kicks Okada again then a Oscutter on the floor. I cannot recap this to it’s fullest, so I will say, this was amazing. Ospreay reversed a Rainmaker into a Spanish fly, Okada reversed a Stormbreaker into a tombstone, Ospreay reversed the tombstone into one of his own and so much more. Go see that if you haven’t already. Okada wins with a Rainmaker. Winner: Kazuchika Okada in 21:57.

*Final thoughts: Another hell of a night. That main event was something special, among a plethora of great matches. There really wasn’t a bad match on the show but I would say Zack and Fale was the weakest match and even that was exciting for the six minutes it went.
