The finals are set.
After the grueling month-long grind of the G1 Climax 28 tournament, one man from the A-block and one from the B-block have arisen as the winners of their respective blocks and will clash tomorrow for the opportunity to get their hands on a briefcase that if successfully defended at some point in the coming months, they will have secured themselves an IWGP Heavyweight Championship match which will take place in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom 13
Those two competitors who will have the opportunity to possibly be in the Wrestle Kingdom main event is two-time winner of the G1 Hiroshi Tanahashi and New Japan Cup winner Kota Ibushi. Tanahashi stood tall in the A-block with a total of 15 points and in order for Kota to have advanced to the finals he needed to defeat his partner and IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega in the main event of today's B-block action as there was a four way tie at the top of the bracket between Ibushi, Omega, Tetsuya Naito and Zack Sabre Jr. Ibushi defeated Omega which put him at the top of the tiebreaker and he was ultimately declared the winner of B-block.
