Kazuchika Okada Wins G1 Climax 32 Tournament NJPW

New Japan Pro Wrestling held the finals of the G1 Climax 32 tournament today, with two former IWGP World Champions battling it out in the tournament final.

The final saw Kazuchika Okada, who defeated Tama Tonga in the semi-final, battle for his fourth G1 Climax victory against Will Ospreay, who defeated Tetsuya Naito in the other semi-final. Ospreay would be fighting for his first G1 victory.

The final match took place today, with Okada defeating Will Ospreay to emerge victorious in the tournament for the fourth time in his legendary career.

With his victory, Okada now earns the right to face off for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, which is currently held by Jay White, at Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4.

NJPW made several other big announcements during the show, including a big change to the format of Wrestle Kingdom, returning to just a one night event on January 4, as well as the date of the company’s return to New York.
