New Japan Pro-Wrestling's G1 Climax tournament is underway, and Work of Wrestling host Tim Kail joins the fray! 

Tim gives his impressions of New Japan, summing up the first five tag matches in broad terms, and then moves into the four singles matches, paying particular attention to Kenny Omega, Juice Robinson, and IWGP Champion Okada.

This is a great entry for new fans or those curious about New Japan (but Tim isn't trying to get you to watch it if you don't want to!) Tim also shares some pertinent commentary on the state of the pro-wrestling community and the relentless, tired conflicts between WWE-fans and indy-fans.
