Day 19 Matches

Clark Connors & Karl Fredericks defeated Ren Narita & Yota Tsuji
The Los Angeles dojo team came out to unique music for the first time. Clark Connors submitted Yota Tsuji with a Boston crab at 9:53. Afterwards, a brawl between the LA and Tokyo young lions ensued and was broken up.

Jeff Cobb, Jushin Thunder Liger & Tiger Mask IV defeated Suzukigun (Lance Archer, Taichi & Yoshinobu Kanemaru)
The former team came out to Liger’s music, which received a tremendous crowd response. Jeff Cobb pinned Yoshinobu Kanemaru with the Tour of the Islands at 7:36.

CHAOS (Will Ospreay, SHO & YOH) vs. Bullet Club (Taiji Ishimori, Yujiro Takahashi & Chase Owens)
Will Ospreay pinned Yujiro Takahashi after the Stormbreaker at 7:57.

Juice Robinson & Toa Henare defeated Jon Moxley & Shota Umino
Toa Henare pinned Shota Umino after the Toa Bottom (uranage) at 6:19. Following his victory over Moxley yesterday, Juice gestured as if he wanted the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship, and they stood each other down in the ring. Moxley hit him with the championship belt and then gave him a uranage through a table.

Hirooki Goto, Togi Makabe, Toru Yano, Tomoaki Honma & Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito, EVIL, SANADA, Shingo Takagi & BUSHI)
SANADA pinned Tomoaki Honma after a top rope moonsault at 8:56.

Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) defeated Tomohiro Ishii, KENTA & YOSHI-HASHI
When Tomohiro Ishii tried to tag in KENTA, KENTA moved his hand away and left the ring, then hit Ishii with the Busaiku Knee Kick and Go 2 Sleep. Tama Tonga pinned Tomohiro Ishii after that at 8:35. After the match, Katsuyori Shibata ran out and attacked KENTA as the crowd erupted. However, Bullet Club ganged up on Shibata and beat him down, and KENTA sat cross-legged on the laid out Shibata.

Suzukigun (Minoru Suzuki & Zack Sabre Jr.) defeated Kazuchika Okada & Hiroshi Tanahashi
This was a really hot tag team match, with the highlight being Shibata eating Okada’s strikes and asking for more, nearly finishing him off right then and there. Minoru Suzuki hit a La Mistica and then pinned Kazuchika Okada with the Gotch-style piledriver. Suzuki got on the microphone and said he wants the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

G1 Climax 29 Final Match: Kota Ibushi defeated Jay White
All of the Bullet Club came out to ringside with Jay White, but the referee told them all to leave, but Gedo stayed. He tried to interfere in the match almost as soon as the bell rang, and the referee threw him out too. Jay White controlled the match in the early going, frequently working over the right knee of Ibushi that he assaulted yesterday. Ibushi fought back time and again, but his comebacks were cut short by Jay going back to the knee, or Ibushi inadvertently hurting his own knee. White threw Ibushi into the referee and hit a low blow, and then Gedo came back out and gave White a chair, which he used to hit Ibushi’s leg. Ibushi rallied back and White’s strikes seemed to have no effect on him. Gedo tried to interfere, but Ibushi neutralized him and hit a Boma Ye on White. Rocky Romero pulled Gedo out of the ring as Ibushi hit another Boma Ye. White reversed the Kamigoye into a Blade Runner, but Ibushi hit a Kamigoye that White kicked out of. Kota Ibushi hit another Kamigoye and pinned Jay White at 31:01 to win the 29th G1 Climax.
