Cruel Summer #27: Kenny Omega vs. Tetsuya Naito (2017) w/ Joel Abraham

Originally published at


WH Park is once again joined by Joel Abraham of the Super J-Cast (which you can find at Voices of Wrestling) to discuss the finals of NJPW G1 Climax 27: Kenny Omega vs. Tetsuya Naito from August 13, 2017.

The discussion veers towards what WH did this day in 2017 after refusing to ever step foot in Sumo Hall again during August. WH also feebly attempts to explain his experience watching actual Sumo there. We also analyze Kenny Omega’s differences between the 2016 to 2019.
