Nineteen hours later, New Japan returns with the B-Block’s seventh night of tournament action. Here’s all you need to know about G1 Climax 29 Night 14 including how to watch.
Los Ingobernables de Japon are set to collide in the main event as the stable’s newest member, Shingo Takagi, takes on its leader, Tetsuya Naito. The show is set to take place on Sunday, August 4, live from the EDION Arena Osaka in Naniwa-ku, Osaka.
All 10 B-Block participants will have their seventh tournament matches including three first time ever singles matches (Tetsuya Naito vs. Shingo Takagi, Jon Moxley vs. Jay White, Juice Robinson vs. Taichi). Underneath them will be four tag team matches set up as previews for the A-Block’s next set of tournament matches scheduled to take place the following Wednesday.

Juice Robinson (3-3) vs. Taichi (2-4)

Tetsuya Naito (3-3) vs. Shingo Takagi (2-4)
Everyone in the block still has a chance to win thanks to the previous show that saw Toru Yano defeat Jon Moxley via count out. Half of the block will be dependent on Moxley taking another loss or else they will be mathematically eliminated from winning the tournament. Tonight, the direction of the B-Block lies in the hands of Jay White.
Former tag team champions and current CHAOS stablemates, Tomohiro Ishii and Toru Yano, are set to square off. Ishii won their lone singles meeting in last year’s tournament. Taichi is on the brink of elimination thanks to a two-match losing streak and is scheduled to take on Juice Robinson next.
Hirooki Goto and Jeff Cobb have traded wins for both the NEVER Openweight Championship and ROH World Television Championship, making this G1 meeting their rubber match. Tetsuya Naito holds a 2-0 record in previous encounters against his LIJ stablemates. Shingo Takagi has the opportunity to end that streak in the main event.
