New Japan Pro Wrestling on Twitter

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 2AM Eastern / 11PM Pacific, and we’ve finally reached the finals!

It’s all come down to Naito vs. Omega, but the finals aren’t all that’s on tap, as we have two tag title defenses lined up as well as a full slate of New Japan’s trademark faction warfare tags up and down the card.
