The Wrestle Report Card: NJPW G1 Climax 29 Predictions

G1 29

The G1 Climax 29 is New Japan Pro Wrestling’s annual tournament to crown a Number 1 Contender to the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at their version of WrestleMania, Wrestle Kingdom on January 4th and 5th, 2020, from The Tokyo Dome in Japan. The tournament is two 10 Man Round Robin Tournaments, Block A and Block B, with the winners meeting on the finals on Monday August 12, 2019.

The following is my predictions for the final standings and my predictions for the results of each night. Note: This article was started before last Saturday’s first show from Dallas Texas where I got three out of five matches right. I will post a report card of the entire tournament at the event’s conclusion. Follow The Wrestle Report Card on Twitter for my up to date thoughts and grades of this tournament.
