G1 Backstage Fallout Video Day 1

Translation of original video.


Satoshi Kojima

“Some people are doubting me, saying ‘You fight for Tenzan, why not fight for yourself?’ But I will fight for Tenzan And for my fans who have always supported me. I am doing this to excite everyone. That’s what excites me too.”

Kenny Omega / Minoru Suzuki

[While he is speaking, Suzuki and crew interrupt, holding Kenny’s USA title.

Suzuki: “Hey. You forgot this.”

Taichi: “Don’t you need this?”

They put the belt on the floor.

Suzuki-gun: “Why don’t you pick it up? Pick it up!”

Taichi: “You understand what we’re saying!”

Kenny starts fighting them.


Hiromu Takahashi

“After I fought with the LIJ members for the first time, I realized that I like them so much.”


Kazuchika Okada

“It wasn’t a G1 match, but, I was manipulated by Yano. What move should I use next time? Rainmaker? Find his weak spot?”


Toru Yano

“I will tell you my story. I saw this mysterious guy on July 11 and 12, the days when the G1 started. I almost got swept up by a darkness. But I won’t lose because I am not lying. I am not lying at all. Something terrible happened last night. However, I can’t tell you now. Wait for the match on July 20th.”


Togi Makabe

“I have no regrets. I felt good. I saw a hot woman watching our fight, and it heated me up.”
