G1 Climax 31 Contest: Day 1 Results

Welcome back to the annual POST Wrestling G1 Climax Listener Contest. Thanks to all 208 of you who entered! This year, we’re going to be posting our daily results here on the main site instead of on the forums. The posts will have the summary information but you will still be able to download the full PDFs as we had in prior years, as well, to track your progress. So sit back, enjoy some of the best matches you’ll see all year, figure out your coffee or sandwich rankings, and see if you can beat Randobot! There will be a full post of everyone’s picks in a future update so you can track your progress.
