- Above is Tetsuya Naito vs. Masato Tanaka at NJPW Destruction in 2013. Naito won the G1 Climax for the first time earlier that year and put the rights to his title opportunity up for grabs in this match, while Tanaka put up his NEVER Openweight Championship. Naito would hit stardust press (corkscrew moonsault) to pick up the big victory.
- Ring of Honor's next US show (and TV taping) will be Philadelphia Excellence on August 25 at the 2300 Arena. A few matches have already been announced for the event.
- During the G1 Climax 28 tournament, Kota Ibushi defeated Kenny Omega to move on to the finals where he would lose to Hiroshi Tanahashi. Omega tweeted out that things are fine between them, showing a recent training session. As noted, Omega said he planned on resting up until "All In" on Sptember 1 where he'll take on Pentagon Jr.
Just a couple of top wrestlers staying together and fighting the post G1 blues. We'll probably be okay. pic.twitter.com/ONMUyXMadd— Kenny Omega (@KennyOmegamanX) August 15, 2018
