Yesterday we got to see one of the best matches of the year, as Kazuchika Okada won his fourth G1 Climax tournament, defeating Will Ospreay. He is now on the road to Tokyo Dome, where he will face the IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. Right now, that’s Jay White – but Tama Tonga earned himself a title shot, which could put a wrench in plans. However, Okada will be also getting some time off after this win – having revealed he’s going on paternity leave, and spending some much needed time with his newborn son.
Kazuchika Okada has done it again. Kazuchika Okada won the NJPW G1 Climax 32 tournament, defeating Will Ospreay in the finals.
