The 25th annual G1 Climax the tournament existed before but under different names) will take place between July 20 and August 16. Last year’s edition was universally acclaimed as the best ever, it wil be interesting to see if they can top those lofty standards. Here is the full list of participants:
Bad Luck Fale
Compared to last year, the four members of Suzuki-gun (Davey Boy Smith Junior, Shelton Benjamin, Lance Archer and Minoru Suzuki and others are still helping out Pro Wrestling NOAH with a major invasion angle) are out. The two new names are Kota Ibushi and Michael Elgin, who will both participate in their first G. Much more on this as the event draws closer of course, but I think we can all already agree on one thing. That line-up looks stellar.
