Day 14 G1 Matches

G1 Climax 29 B Block Match: Tomohiro Ishii defeated Toru Yano
Ishii immediately went after Yano before the bell to finish him off quickly, but Yano pulled his t-shirt over Ishii’s face and nearly rolled him up for the win. Yano took a chair and sat on the ramp, taunting Ishii to come attack him, but Ishii didn’t take the bait, and Yano rushed back into the ring to avoid the countout. From that point, Yano started using actual wrestling moves like lariats and suplexes to make this a very heated match between stablemates. Tomohiro Ishii pinned Toru Yano after a vertical drop brainbuster at 9:36. Ishii 8 points, Yano 6 points.

G1 Climax 29 B Block Match: Taichi defeated Juice Robinson
Yoshinobu Kanemaru was seconding Taichi and attacked Juice Robinson as he was making his entrance, allowing Taichi to start the match at an immediate advantage. Taichi continued to dominate after the match returned to the ring. Juice made a comeback, but Taichi countered the Pulp Friction to cut him off. Then, Kanemaru tried to interfere again, but a big punch from Juice neutralized him. However, Taichi capitalized on the distraction and pinned Juice Robinson after a Black Mephisto at 12:28. Taichi 6 points, Juice 6 points.

G1 Climax 29 B Block Match: Hirooki Goto defeated Jeff Cobb
From the outset, it became clear that Cobb was the stronger and more resilient man in this match, as he controlled the match early with strikes and slams, with occasional bursts of retaliation from Goto. Goto roared to life with an ushigoroshi followed by kicks and a reverse GTR, and the match continued to favor him as it went on, with Cobb looking visibly tired. Hirooki Goto pinned Jeff Cobb after a GTR at 11:20. Goto 8 points, Cobb 6 points.

G1 Climax 29 B Block Match: Jay White defeated Jon Moxley
After not being able to get his hands on White at all yesterday, Moxley jumped Jay White before the bell. He went to set up a table on the outside, but Gedo removed it from the ringside area to heavy boos. With White down, Gedo distracted Moxley for enough time for White to hit a low blow followed by a brass knuckles punch from Gedo. That didn’t end the match, but it didn’t last much longer after that. Jay White pinned Jon Moxley after a Blade Runner at 15:15. White 8 points, Moxley 10 points. Although it was not a fair fight, Jay White has achieved the first pinfall victory on Jon Moxley in NJPW.

G1 Climax 29 B Block Match: Tetsuya Naito defeated Shingo Takagi
Being a never-before-seen match between two stablemates, this match had a big fight feel from the outset. They didn’t fight with the sportsmanship and respect one would expect from teammates and long-time friends, as this match contained condescending cheap shots, spitting, mean name-calling, and cocky pins. Takagi looked very strong in this match, throwing Naito all over the place and cleverly countering many of Naito’s moves. For the second day in a row, the main event came close to a draw, and it seemed like Naito just eked out a win over his fellow LIJ member. Tetsuya Naito pinned Shingo Takagi after a Destino at 27:15. Naito 8 points, Shingo 4 points.
