G1 Climax 31 Contest: Day 16 Results

Day 16 of the G1 Climax is in the books and Chris Engler has updated standings in the tournament and our POST Wrestling contest.

Today’s results have made the B Block math very simple. Going into the final night, Okada and Jeff Cobb are the only two participants still alive and will face each other. If Okada beats Cobb, he wins the block. As long as Cobb doesn’t lose to Okada (which includes a draw, a double count-out, or a double disqualification) then Cobb wins the block.

Today is the first day of the entire G1 that contest leader Zack Smith scored less than 3 points. This has narrowed his lead to 2 points going into the last two shows. Could we see someone else make a last-minute surge and unseat Zack who has been alone at the top since DAY 3?

By contrast in the C Block, Kate From Montreal has continued to grind out wins and has now separated herself from Brad The Archivist by four points. There will need to be a big swing over the last two shows for Brad to have a chance at winning the C Block.
