(STINGER: New Japan)

After more than a month of matches, New Japan’s G1 Climax tournament is into its final days.

Kazuchika Okada battles Jeff Cobb Wednesday for the top spot in the B Block.

A Block winner Kota Ibushi awaits in the tournament final on Thursday.


The 3-Way NXT Women’s Tag Title Match on next Tuesday’s Halloween Havoc special will be a “Scareway To Hell” ladder match. One-half of the champs, Io Shirai, got to Spin The Wheel and Make The Deal for that stipulation last night.

She earned the chance to spin it after she pinned Persia Pirotta last night. Toxic Attraction’s Jayce Jane was also in that 3-Way preview of next week’s title match, but Jane was injured after she came up short on a dive to the outside and she did not finish the match. As of early Wednesday morning there’s no official update on how she’s doing.

A new title match is now added to Halloween Havoc. MSK will defend the NXT Tag Titles against Imperium’s Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner. This will be the third Spin The Wheel Make The Deal match on the show.

Barthel & Aichner beat the Creed Brothers on last night’s NXT. Aichner rolled up Julius Creed for the pin. Creed was distracted after Kushida and Ikemen Jiro attacked the rest of The Diamond Mine at ringside.

LA Knight will be the host of Halloween Havoc. He had to beat Grayson Waller last night to earn that gig.

NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa & his title challenger at Halloween Havoc, Bron Breakker, got along just long enough to beat the Grizzled Young Veterans.

Also last night…

Legado Del Fantasma’s Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza beat Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen.

Cora Jade pinned Legado’s Elektra Lopez with a rollup.

Odyssey Jones beat Andre Chase.

And Tony D’Angelo beat Ru Feng, who was making his NXT debut.

Tonight’s MLW Fusion Alpha has Richard Holliday defending the IWA Caribbean Championship against...Mil Muertes.

Plus, Matt Cross vs. Calvin Tankman in a first round match in the Opera Cup tournament…

And Nicole Savoy vs. Hollidead.


AEW confirmed Tuesday that it has signed Daniel Garcia.

He was on the losing side of an 8-Man tag on last night’s Dark. Garcia, 2.0 & Serpentico were defeated by Dark Order’s Stu Grayson, Colt Cabana, Alan "5" Angels & 10. Cabana pinned Serpentico.

Also on the show, Kris Statlander, Thunder Rosa and Red Velvet beat Diamante, Nyla Rose and Emi Sakura. Velvet pinned Sakura.

Plus, Frankie Kazarian submitted Aaron Solo.

A reminder, there is NO Dynamite tonight. It’s pushed back to Saturday night this week.
