John Pollock and Wai Ting review NJPW G1 Climax 30 Day 11 (October 7) headlined by Kota Ibushi vs. Shingo Takagi.

Can current G1 MVP Tomohiro Ishii drag a Large+ coffee out of “Pointless” Yujiro? Move over, Rainmaker and Money Clip – there’s a new move in town vying for Kazuchika Okada’s affections. And – Kota Ibushi and Shingo Takagi’s first singles encounter results in one of the tournament’s best matches.

This narrative you’ve come up with for Okada’s finishers is hilarious.

I haven’t been watching along lately, but I got a chance to see Wrestle Kingdom this year before the pandemic and was disappointed to see that Kota Ibushi, as talented as he is, lose both his scheduled matches back-to-back.

Have they given up on him?
