“What I want is the money and control. I don’t care what your guys’ (New Japan) business reasons are. Idiots.

[Fans booing Suzuki-gun, saying ‘go home’] Whatever New Japan fans think; “This guy should lose” or yelling “Stop him”, none of that matters to me.

G1 is the time for us, Suzuki-gun, to mount a full-scale attack on everyone.”

Interviewer: “Can you please say ‘G1 Climax 27’ to the camera?”

Suzuki: “You do it!”

“This is New Japan’s IWGP fight. As long as I am here, I will make it rain in the G1 Climax. I believe that the IWGP title means ‘the best’, and I have to show it to fans. I will win the G1 and I will prove that I am the best. I will win the G1 and keep my IWGP title. Nobody is going to beat me. Do you know why?”

Gedo: “Because he is on another level.”

Satoshi Kojima

“I gave my G1 spot last year to Tenzan for his retirement from the G1 tournament. I was so moved by him. I wanted to give back to him for what he gave me, 10 times bigger, 100 times bigger, and 1000 times bigger. Also, I want to have a good showing for the fans because of my absence last year, and end G1 victorious.”
