G1 CLIMAX 2004 Participants Announced
16 names have been announced for this year's G1 as well as the block arrangements. Noticibly both blocks have a ton of big name talent involved. It will be really interesting to see how it plays out this year. Will Tenzan win two straight years in a row? Will Supernova Nakamura once again prove he 'for real' and not a fluke? Will an outsider win the G1? Will someone take out Yasuda and put Yoshie in before the tour kicks off? All questions will be answered when the G1 tour commences on 8/7/04!

Liger out-rudos the Kishiwada Gurentai
Jushin Thunder Liger shocked many on 7/3 when at the Delfin Arena when he brought out Gedo, Jado & Katsushi Takemura to battle Osaka Pro's ruling rudo team of Big Boss MA-G-MA, Daio QUALLT, Goa and Black Buffalo. Gedo scored the pin on Goa with the Superfly splash at 10:20. MA-G-MA was majorly pissed at the loss as he was expecting Liger to recruit his good friends El Samurai, Koji Kanemoto and Wataru Inoue. Is the feud over? I hope not!
Full results of the show:
1. Gamma beat Perro (7:34) with the Flashback.
2. Tsubasa & Billy Ken Kid beat Miracle Man & Masato Matoba (9:46) when Kid used a Koumori Tsuri otoshi on Matoba.
3. YUTAKA beat Tigers Mask (14:20) with a jumping high kick.
4. Three Way Match: Ebessan beat Super Delfin & Kuishinbo Kamen (11:38) with a single-leg crab hold on Kamen.
5. Jushin Thunder Liger , Jado , Gedo & Katsushi Takemura beat Big Boss MA-G-MA, Daio QUALLT, Goa & Black Buffalo (10:20) when Gedo used a Superfly splash on Goa.
