The B Block emerges from its penultimate night of the G1 Climax with a major upset, as the “Last Dragon” Shingo Takagi scored potentially his biggest victory in New Japan so far over the “Stone Pitbull” Tomohiro Ishii, effectively eliminating the heavyweight juggernaut from the field of competition.

“Switchblade” Jay White also eliminated Juice Robinson to mathematically eliminate him as well, as we head down to the wire. In addition, Tetsuya Naito stayed alive in the block with a win over Ring of Honor’s Jeff Cobb, while Hirooki Goto scored a major victory over previous block leader, IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley, keeping himself alive, taking the mathematical top position, and making the B Block’s upcoming finale very interesting.
