Originally published at


WH Park once again welcomes Wai Ting to Cruel Summer to discuss the finals of NJPW’s 22nd annual G1 Climax tournament: Kazuchika Okada vs. Karl Anderson from August 12, 2012.

WH and Wai talk about what differences they notice between the New Japan of 2001 and 2012, how they feel about keeping track of points and tie breakers in the G1, the game of pachinko and gambling in Japan, and if Anderson benefitted from being in the Bullet Club in the long run.
