NJPW has released the entire card for Sunday’s G1 Climax final from Sumo Hall, which will feature the block winners in the main event.

On Saturday, SANADA clinched the B Block by defeating EVIL in the main event of the final block event using an O’Connor roll while overcoming interference from Dick Togo. The winner put SANADA at twelve points, equal to EVIL and Tetsuya Naito, and advancing based on his wins over the two during the tournament.

SANADA will meet A Block winner Kota Ibushi in Sunday’s final, who won the block on Friday when defeating Taichi to end the tournament with fourteen points.

Below is the full card for Sunday’s show that streams live at 2 am Eastern on New Japan World
*Kota Ibushi vs. SANADA – G1 Climax Final
*Tetsuya Naito & BUSHI vs. EVIL & Yujiro Takahashi
*Kazuchika Okada & SHO vs. Will Ospreay & The Great O-Khan
*Jay White, KENTA, Taiji Ishimori & Gedo vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi, Juice Robinson, Jeff Cobb & Master Wato
*Minoru Suzuki & Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs. Shingo Takagi & Hiromu Takahashi
*Zack Sabre Jr., Taichi, El Desperado & Douki vs. Tomohiro Ishii, Hirooki Goto, Yoshi-Hashi & Toru Yano

I guess with Power Struggle right around the corner, you have to rush to get those matches ready, but what immediately felt like the possible WK match for the two, we’re already getting the first contact between Okada and Ospreay 48 hours later. Makes me wonder if Ospreay’s Empire faction (seems to be what they’re calling it), might see some growth tonight to change the equation…though even that feels quick.

Future Tag League Champions…SHO-Khan?

I’m already sorry for putting that out there.
