I don't know how it's been the past few years, but at one time, the G-1 Climax was one of the best events of the year for New Japan and there were almost always a few great matches. Are there any surprises this year, or any opportunities to launch anyone from this? Kawada's entry seems to have a lot of people interested.

The last two years looked pretty bad on paper but they ended up pulling off really great tournaments despite that. This year looks really really bad on paper though. There's a lot of dead weight like Blue Wolf, Toru Yano and Kashin in the tournament. I'm disappointed to see that Josh Barnett was dropped as well.


I'd say this year it's going to be all about Nakamura and Tanahashi. I could easily see them facing off in the finals.
