NJPW G1 Climax 30- Night 4 Results (9/24) B Block Heats Up
New Japan Pro Wrestling continued the 30th annual G1 Climax on Thursday. The show was headlined by IWGP Double Champion Tetsuya Naito and IWGP Tag Team Champion Zack Sabre Jr. pushing each other to the limits of their bodies, and the limits of competition. Naito once again flirted with a 30-minute Draw on his way to victory in the main event.
Former IWGP Double Champ EVIL was able to defeat YOSHI-HASHI in a match that saw EVIL throw everything in his arsenal AND Dick Togo at the NEVER 6-Man Tag Champ. YOSHI-HASHI’s performance on Thursday might have been one of his best ever, as he came within inches of defeating the former Double Champ.
Juice Robinson shocked the world by beating former-GHC Heavyweight Champion, and current IWGP United States Championship #1 Contender, KENTA. Robinson overcame a stiff beating from the Bullet Club capo to deliver two left hands and Pulp Friction. Robinson remains undefeated in the tournament, and his momentum is something to be reckoned with.
