Those of us who like NJPW style of wrestling are often drawn to the product because of the quality of the matches, but I think also important to remember that in recent years the bookers (Gedo plus others) pretty much keep their champions strong, with little parity booking.
This enforces the idea of hierarchy (important in Japanese society). The young lions are at the bottom, and Okada is at the top. This dynamic, instead of making things boring, actually makes matches more dramatic as we’re always hoping for the protagonist (baby-face) to move up the rankings, if they’re fighting from below.
Anyway, keeping that in mind, plus the fact that NJPW is running the final G1 shows in a large venue, hence the need to sell tickets, and thus the need to build drama to the final night, if one is booking from the end then making the final night of the G1 B block as dramatic as possible is important.
With that in mind, here are my predictions (since I failed to make it in under the deadline for the POST contest):
I expect NJPW to keep their champions strong. The above scenarios are with the idea that Naito will face Okada (for one last time) in the Tokyo Dome.
For the last night of the G1 B block there will be four guys in contention, and only with Moxley losing, and Naito going over White, can Naito win.
For long term story arcs, I think the B block is more obvious in regards to booking: US Champion Moxley has to lose to future US contenders, Taichi will be victorious over Chaos, tension will build between Evil and the rest of LIJ, etc.
The A block is more challenging because the idea that Ibushi is the next in line may seem obvious but there are problems with that (mostly due to the nature of Ibushi and how he works.) Tanahashi may be a sentimental favorite but he has to fade.
Also, while a lot of people seem to think their favorite matches will be in the A block, I’m most looking forward to the B block, especially with Moxley and Takagi going head to head, as well as facing Ishii and Naito.
