The G1 Climax 29 is on the home stretch all weekend! If you’re behind, use this as a shortcut to catch up!

Wrestling this coming weekend is surely over flowing. G1 Block Finals, NXT Takeover, SummerSlam, G1 Grand Finals and I think ROH has something going on as well. So with everyone’s time being rationed, I figured it would be an alright idea to just list out the best matches, so far, from the G1.

So for anyone dragging their feet, or significantly behind for other reasons, here’s the quality abridged version! The list is anything I rated 4 or higher throughout the tournament. Unsurprisingly, the list consists of 25 matches, and out of the 80 wrestled up to this date, that’s a pretty good percentage.

  • Night 1: Block A: Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada: Okada wins via Rainmaker @22:10 – ****
  • Night 2: Block B: Tomohiro Ishii vs Jeff Cobb: Ishii wins via Vertical Drop Brainbuster @18:35 – ****
  • Night 3: Block A: SANADA vs Will Ospreay: Ospreay wins via Storm Breaker @17:10 – ****
  • Night 6: B Block: Shingo Takagi vs Taichi: Takagi wins via Last of the Dragon @14:40 – ****
  • Night 9: A Block: Lance Archer vs Kota Ibushi: Ibushi wins via Kamigoye @11:45 – ****
  • Night 12: B Block: Tomohiro Ishii vs Hirooki Goto: Goto wins via GTR @18:00 – ****

  • Night 16: B Block: Jay White vs Juice Robinson: White wins via TTO @23:00 – ****
  • Night 1: Block A: Zack Sabre Jr vs SANADA: SANADA wins via Japanese Leg Clutch @21:25 – **** 1/4
  • Night 2: Block B: Jay White vs Hirooki Goto: Goto wins via GTR @21:05 – **** 1/4

  • Night 9: A Block: SANADA vs Hiroshi Tanahashi: Tanahashi wins via High Fly Flow @18:05 – **** 1/4
  • Night 1: Block A: Kota Ibushi vs KENTA: KENTA wins via Go 2 Sleep @20:50 – **** 1/2
  • Night 4: Block B: Tomohiro Ishii vs Jay White: Ishii wins via Vertical Drop Brainbuster @19:15 – **** 1/2
  • Night 6: B Block: Jon Moxley vs Tomohiro Ishii: Moxley wins via Death Rider @20:35 – **** 1/2
  • Night 7: A Block: Will Ospreay vs Kazuchika Okada: Okada wins via Rainmaker @21:55 – **** 1/2
  • Night 10: B Block: Tomohiro Ishii vs Juice Robinson: Ishii wins via Vertical Drop Brain Buster @17:55 – **** 1/2
  • Night 13: A Block: Kazuchika Okada vs SANADA: SANADA wins via Moonsault @29:45 – **** 1/2
  • Night 14: B Block: Tetsuya Naito vs Shingo Takagi: Naito wins via Destino @27:15 – **** ½
  • Night 5: A Block: Kota Ibushi vs Will Ospreay: Ibushi wins via Kamigoye Knee @27:15 – **** 3/4
  • Night 9: A Block: Kazuchika Okada vs KENTA: Okada wins via Rainmaker @26:55 – **** 3/4
  • Night 16: B Block: Shingo Takagi vs Tomohiro Ishii: Takagi wins via Last of the Dragon @22:40 – *****

We still have 11 matches left and with more on the line, that should insure a few more additions to the list. Speaking of 11, we can see Night 11 is the only one without a match on the list. If I remember correctly, 2 matches got *** 3/4, so it barely missed. So even the down nights are still pretty damn good.

Now let’s just sit back and see how the dust settles…especially in B Block.
