This year's version, the 30th annual, will feature 20 men competing across 19 dates for a spot in the finals on October 18. Each show will be broadcast worldwide on New Japan's streaming service, NJPW World.

Opening day action takes place in Osaka’s Edion Arena Osaka, kicking off at 4AM Eastern / 1AM Pacific, and it's all about A Block, one of two groupings whose winner will go on to a spot in the finals.

Moving forward, we'll post records and standings. This being day one of A Block, all competitors start on even ground!

Enjoy the show!
