John Pollock & Wai Ting review NJPW’s G1 Climax 29 Day 13 (August 3) headlined by Kazuchika Okada vs. Sanada and Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kota Ibushi.

August 3, 2019
Osaka, Japan
Osaka Prefectural Gym (EDION Arena Osaka)

  • Kazuchika Okada vs. Sanada (Recommended)
  • Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kota Ibushi (Recommended)
  • Will Ospreay vs. EVIL (Recommended)
  • Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Lance Archer (Recommended)
  • KENTA vs. Bad Luck Fale

    CORRECTION: While unlikely, KENTA and Hiroshi Tanahashi are not mathematically out. There is a scenario where KENTA can win his final two matches and end the tournament tied with Okada and Ibushi at 12 points. KENTA has a loss to Okada and win over Ibushi and would force a playoff. Tanahashi’s is more complicated as he could end with 12 points and be tied with Okada, Ibushi, and EVIL. Tanahashi has a win over EVIL but losses to Okada and Ibushi. Tanahashi’s scenario is so complicated I don’t see any hope of it happening. The multi-person playoff is not something typical of recent G1s.
