G1 Climax 30 Reference Sheet

For the fourth consecutive year, we’ll be covering The Annual NJPW G1 Climax Tournament. This will be a reference sheet for the tournament.

The tournament consists of two blocks, each with 10 competitors who will square off against one another and earn points for each victory. Once the round-robin blocks are complete, the top point scorers will square off in the G1 Climax finals. Should Tetsuya Naito win the event, he would have the opportunity to choose his No. 1 contender as the current champion.

Block A (Kazuchika Okada, Kota Ibushi, Jeff Cobb, Tomohiro Ishii, Will Ospreay, Shingo Takagi, Minoru Suzuki, Jay White, Taichi, and Yujiro Takahashi)

Block B (Tetsuya Naito, EVIL, KENTA, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Juice Robinson, Hirooki Goto, Yoshi Hashi, Toru Yano, Zack Sabre Jr, and Sanada)
