Re: NJPW G1 Climax 29: 7/6/19 - 8/12/19

I think they made a mistake running such a HUGE venue for the first night in Dallas. It's cool to be part of the G1 tournament itself but it's gonna feel weird when there's a 6 day break in between shows. It just won't feel... genuine I guess? Realistically we're gonna get 4 singles matches and even if the top two are BIG time matches (something like Okada/Tana paired with Naito/White which is pretty far-fetched anyway) I just don't know if that's enough to sell 15k+ tickets.

Should've just been 'G1 Special in Dallas' imo so they could have a bunch of title matches and all that.

What do you mean by 4 singles matches? Won't this have first day matches of both blocks?

Nar, it’s only gonna have one block. That will usually mean 5 singles matches though, which is more than enough. Some of the greatest shows of all time are single block G1 shows

I think they made a mistake with the huge arena as well, however Mark Cuban owns the Mavericks who play there, and AXS TV is broadcasting this, so hopefully AXS is covering a large portion of the rent for the arena. I really hope NJPW isnít expecting a sellout, because that would mean a larger attendance than at MSG.

NJPW is delusional if they think Jay White at the top of the card will sell tickets. Book that shit in Japan and quit ruining US shows with Jay White.

I have tickets so I’m always pessimistic about NJPW shows. I know for a fact I’ll be cursed with a ZSJ singles and Fale singles.

Yeah I meant 5 (wasn't thinking straight there).

They're running 19 G1 shows with the last one just having the final, so it's 9 shows each block. This Dallas show will just have one block if my math is right, which tbh won't come anywhere close to a sellout here in the U.S. Looking at the ticket model though it seems like they expected that because a majority of the arena isn't even opened up.

Don't want to necessarily make a pick without the field being set or anything, but I'm feeling like Okada wins at MSG and Switchblade wins the G1 this year.

We'll see how things go. It just seems focused on for the story they're telling. To me, anyways. As White continues to mirror Okada's 2012 rise.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.

I got Naito to win hard then challenge Okada at the dome.

American fans are getting an actual G1 show and demanding a card like they can't understand how the G1 works.

At this point, I hope NJPW drops the American experiment and shift gears to more wrestling starved market.

Asia is stuck with backyard promotions and the occasional WWE show coming by. Better off making a play there.
If I were NJPW I would focus heavily on the UK and European markets. They could technically do a European tour taking in London, Manchester, Dublin, Berlin, Paris and one or two other cities. The US is - unfortunately - way too spoilt and with the WWE and pending AEW events across the country they don't need another promotion in their backyard.

Europe has always been a hot-bed for wrestling, dating back to Wembley Stadium SS92 and the Germany tours that WWF fans went ape-shit over. Why not tap into that market? That said I am bias.

When will they announce who all the competitors are? What are the odds Mox competes? If he does, how do you book him?
