Night 4 of the G1 will take place bright and early again at 5:30 AM ET for the second round of “B” block matches. Again all G1 and NJPW event are live streamed from njpwworld.com. The match that everyone is talking about going into Night 4 is the showdown of Bullet Club brothers, Kenny Omega vs Tama Tonga. Tensions were at an all time high during night 3 when Toma Tonga called out Omega saying that he only worries about himself and not the Bullet Club as well as taking advantage of Kenny’s injury sustained from his first round match up with Minoru Suzuki. This match should be very physical and could easily be the match of the night!
