squaredcirclepit njpw g1 2019

This past weekend, New Japan Pro Wrestling kicked off their annual summer tournament, the G1 Climax 29. I was there and was lucky enough to get credentialed for the press conference. In this very special episode of Squared Circle Pit, I post some highlights from the question and answer session that was only open to press – featuring segments with Will Ospreay, Zack Sabre Jr., Jay White, Juice Robinson and announcer Kevin Kelly. Then, I welcome my RIP a Livecast co-host, Darren Delgado, who attended the opening night in Dallas with me, to recap the events of the first night. Hope you enjoy this special episode.
