New Japan Pro Wrestling announced the blocks for this year’s G1 Climax tournament during the Kizuna Road show at Korakuen Hall on Monday morning. Kazuchika Okada and Kenny Omega are set to turn their rivalry into a trilogy. Both wrestlers are in the B Block. NJPW has yet to release the match schedule for the tournament, but when they do, we will know when the trilogy match will take place. If you recall, Okada and Omega faced off in two classic matches at Wrestle Kingdom and Dominion earlier this year.
The tournament is set to begin on July 17th and concludes on August 13th, with the A Block winner facing the B Block winner on the final day. The winner of the tournament will receive a briefcase to challenge for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at next year’s Tokyo Dome show on January 4th. Here are the blocks:
