G1 Climax 31 Reference Sheet

For the fifth consecutive year, we’ll be covering The Annual NJPW G1 Climax Tournament right here on Pro Wrestling Transcriptions. It’s the best tournament in professional wrestling and we’re ready to give you the best match breakdowns in the business. There’s 18 events this year and this bad boy will start on September 18th in Osaka. Don’t forget to subscribe to NJPW World and make sure to share our transcripts with every singe G1 31 event, it would mean a lot to us. We want this to be the ultimate point of reference for you guys and girls.

As always, Josh Lopez will transcribe every single G1 Climax 31 Event on this tour. I’ll update the scoreboards and results on this particular article following each event. Let us know which matches are you looking forward to the most? And who you think is gonna win the G1 Climax 31?

The G1 Climax 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 current IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi win the event, he would have the opportunity to choose his No. 1 contender as the current champion.

– Kota Ibushi has won the last two G1 Climax Tournaments. Will he win it for a historic third consecutive time? The road to Wrestle Kingdom 16 begins on September 18th.

BREAKING NEWS: Tetsuya Naito has been forced to withdraw from the G1 Climax due to a recent knee injury suffered on night one. Because of that, his remaining opponents in the A Block will receive two points. And those said performers will have special single matches for the remainder of the tour. Our thoughts go out to Naito and wish him a speedy recovery.

Block A (Shingo Takagi, Kota Ibushi, Tetsuya Naito, Tomohiro Ishii, KENTA, Zack Sabre Jr, Tanga Loa, The Great O-Khan, Toru Yano, and Yujiro Takahashi) 

Block B (Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, EVIL, Jeff Cobb, Hirooki Goto, Sanada, Tama Tonga, Taichi, Yoshi Hashi, and Chase Owens)
