New Japan Pro Wrestling have announced the blocks for the upcoming G1 Climax.

This is the tournament that will see the top stars of NJPW go at it with the eventual winner getting a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at next year’s Wrestle Kingdom. The Heavyweight title is currently held by Kazuchika Okada.
