Final NJPW G1 Climax 34 lineups revealed

The NJPW G1 Climax 34 lineup has been completed following the end of a qualifier tournament at today's New Japan Soul event. 

The mini-tournament for the final two spots in the G1 Climax lineup saw Hiroshi Tanahashi and Tomohiro Ishii eliminated before the final qualifiers.
