Jon Moxley and KENTA lead their blocks in the NJPW G1 Climax
Going into this year’s G1 Climax, many predicted that either Kota Ibushi or Will Ospreay would represent the A-Block and Tetsuya Naito would represent the B-Block. With the storyline being told that Naito wants to be a double champ, it would make sense that he would be this year’s winner and face IWGP Champion Kazuchika Okada to main event Wrestle Kingdom 14.
