It’s that time of year again, and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW)'s G1 Climax tournament is back to ruin sleep schedules all over the globe!

This year's version, the 27th annual, will feature 20 men competing across 19 dates for a spot in the finals August 13. Each show will be broadcast worldwide on New Japan's streaming service, NJPW World.

We'll have open threads & results for each show as well as the standard match recommendation posts at regular intervals throughout the tournament, so why not watch along with the best pro wrestling community on the internet?

Today’s action takes place in Tokyo's Ryogoku Sumo Hall, kicking off at a ripe 5:30AM Eastern / 2:30AM Pacific, and it's all about B Block, one of two groupings whose winner will go on to a spot in the finals.

Here are our current standings for B Block going into tonight’s show, broken down by point totals first and their tournament record in parentheses after, but if you’d like a more in-depth look at how we got here, you can find past show results easily, right here.

In any case, now that we’re on the last night of block action, it all comes down to Omega and Okada— if Okada wins or draws, he’ll move on to the finals but Omega needs a win to advance; everything else is just for bragging rights.
