G1 Climax 31 Contest: Day 3 Results

With the injury to Tetsuya Naito, per the contest rules, Naito forfeits all of his future matches. So, if you picked Naito’s opponent as the winner for any of his matches today or going forward you will be awarded the two points. These future matches have already been scored and are reflected in the standings below.

This will make Zack Sabre Jr.’s points total a little misleading as he was the only one to actually face Naito. Zack’s point total will always have one fewer day’s points factored in versus the competitors in A Block that have yet to have their Naito replacement match since those comeptitors have already been awarded 2 points for the forfeit victory vs. Naito.
