Tetsuya Naito Not Happy with NJPW G1 Climax Entrant Selection Process
NJPW star Tetsuya Naito spoke with NJPW1972.com ahead of the G1 Climax tournament, and below is what Naito said on the tournament selection process, which he has had an issue with in the past:
“I have more of a bone to pick with the choice of entrants this year.
“I said the same thing last year, but there are 19 shows in this tour. So because of that, the decision was made to have 20 wrestlers, right? All that’s happening is that entrants are being picked to fill out spaces on the cards. We have to have 19 shows, so we have to have 20 wrestlers, so we have to have two blocks of ten. You do that and it’s a given; there’s always going to be entrants that don’t have a chance of winning the tournament.
“For example, somebody in the same block as me: Toru Yano.
“Him, and guys who aren’t around all that often on tours. Someone like Tama Tonga. I get that you have to have Ibushi and Omega, but Tonga hasn’t done much recently.”
