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 Metal Injection 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.
Check out previous Squared Circle Pit interviews about wrestling with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Chris Jericho, former WCW boss Eric Bischoff, NJPW star Kenny Omega, WWE Hall of Famer Bubba Ray Dudley, Mick Foley, Rob Van Dam, Raven, WWE star Rowan, CM Punk, Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, Jamey Jasta, Every Time I Die's Andy Williams, Zakk Wylde, Killswitch Engage's Mike D, Converge's Jacob Bannon, Neurosis' Scott Kelly, former WWE head writer and Dethklok co-creator Tommy Blacha, former WWE announcer Justin Roberts, ROH star Frankie Kazarian, EVOLVE booker and former ROH booker Gabe Sapolsky, and more.
