NJPW G1 Climax 32 has reached the penultimate stage as two semi-finals will determine who will meet in tomorrow night’s final. You can find the results right here!
After 18 nights of gruelling action across four blocks, 28 men have now been whittled down to four as NJPW’s G1 Climax 32 reaches the semi-finals.
The first semi-final saw A Block winner Kazuchika Okada take on the leader of B Block Tama Tonga. Tonga gave it everything he had and looked to be on the verge of victory after a huge Gun Stun. However, it took him too long to get to Okada for the pin and The Rainmaker was able to kick out.
Tama tried the Gun Stun several more times, but Okada blocked each one and eventually locked in the Money Clip. Not taking his opponent lightly, he hit a Landslide and was able to hit a huge Rainmaker to move through to tomorrow’s Final. Following the bout, he showed his respect to Tama Tonga and the two hugged in the ring.
The second semi-final will saw D Block winner Will Ospreay compete against C Block victor Tetsuya Naito for the first time ever.
Naito spent the match relentlessly targetting Ospreay’s neck which was taped up following his violent match with Juice Robinson the previous night. However, The Commonwealth Kingpin was able to take control of the bout at several points, coming back from everything Naito threw at him.
In the final stretch, Ospreay was able to kick out of Destino and come back with a Hidden Blade only for Naito to kick out at 2.9. Ospreay finally ended things with Stormbreaker to secure his place against Okada in the Final.
