Moments After The Beginning Of The October 7, 2020 G1 Climax 30 Night 10 Headline Match via New Japan World

The G1 Climax 30 Night 11 headline saw former IWGP Heavyweight, IWGP Intercontinental, and IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion and Bullet Club member “Switchblade” Jay White face Suzuki-Gun member Taichi.

Both needed a victory to keep their G1 Climax 30 Finals hopes in a reasonable grasp. With both sitting on 6 points, the match may play to be a tie-breaker in deciding who wins the A Block.

G1 Climax 30: Switchblade v Taichi

Taichi was coming off a G1 Climax 30 Night 9 loss to former five-time NEVER Openweight Champion and two-time Revolution Pro Wrestling (RevPro) Undisputed British Heavyweight Champion and CHAOS member Tomohiro Ishii.

Switchblade suffered defeat at the hands of Jeff Cobb in his last tournament match coming into Night 11, giving two straight difficult losses after a perfect 3-0 start to his campaign.

Taichi matched Switchblade’s stalling tactics at the beginning of the match, drawing the ire of Switchblade who is accustomed to getting under the skin of his opponents.

After several minutes of Taichi matching Switchblade’s mind games, the two embarked on what was a physical and highly competitive match.

Taichi was able to neutralize White’s manager Gedo, who didn’t want to take any chance in an important swing match for Jay White.

Unfortunately for Taichi, White was able to gain the fall at the 15 minutes and 16 seconds mark with his Bladerunner technique to move to 8 points. Taichi remaining at 6 points makes his remaining G1 Climax 30 tournament matches fall in the must-win section.

Jay White has fellow Bullet Club member Yujiro (October 10th), current NEVER Openweight Champion Minoru Suzuki (October 13th), and former five-time NEVER Openweight Champion Tomohiro Ishii (October 16th) remaining on his schedule.

If Switchblade stumbles against his unit mate on the 10th, his matches against Suzuki and Ishii become must-wins, and both present a unique challenge Jay White may struggle to conquer.
