New Japan Pro Wrestling continued their 30th annual G1 Climax on Sunday. A Block’s third night of competition saw “King Switchblade” Jay White & “The Holy Emperor” Taichi take the top spots in the block, both men undefeated so far in round robin competition.
Elsewhere on the card, Gabriel Kidd defeated Yota Tsuji in a blistering contest. “The King” Minoru Suzuki outpaced Jeff Cobb in a 10-minute sprint to beat the big Olympian. Kota Ibushi also got two more points after going for blow for blow, punch for punch, and kick for kick with Tomohiro Ishii.
