The G1 Climax (2019), alternatively known as G1 Climax 29, is an ongoing nineteen-day professional wrestling event and tournament promoted by the Japan-based New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), started on July 6 and set to conclude on August 12, 2019. It is the twenty-ninth edition of G1 Climax, and forty-fifth edition of the tournament counting its previous forms under different names.
Considered NJPW’s most important tournament, the G1 Climax features twenty wrestlers, divided in two blocks of ten (“A” and “B”). Each participant faces all nine other wrestlers within the same block in singles matches. The winner of each block is determined via a point system, with two points for a win, one point for a draw, and no point for a defeat; each night of the event sees the ten members of one block compete for the tournament, while the members of the non-competing block perform in tag team matches that have no influence of the tournament results. On the final day of the event, the winners of both blocks face each other to determine the winner of the G1 Climax, who will gain a future match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom, NJPW’s biggest yearly event.
The event saw the G1 Climax debut of Jeff Cobb, Jon Moxley, Kenta, Shingo Takagi, and Will Ospreay as well as Lance Archer’s first participation since 2014; this was Kenta’s in-ring debut at NJPW. As usual, the tournament took place over several cities and locations; the 2019 edition marked the first time that the G1 Climax tournament took place outside of Japan, as the event opened with G1 Climax in Dallas at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, before moving back to Japan. The event is broadcast live on AXS TV in the United States and New Japan Pro-Wrestling World.
