~ Takizawa wins the tournament on his first day back to K-DOJO.
An interesting development has arose in NJPW while the G1 is taking place on the Suzuki-gun front. After a struggle of words between TAKA Michinoku and Taichi following the recent loses from the group. Taichi seems
to blame TAKA for his loses and TAKA seems to point to Taichi as the weak link.
Well all of these back and forth words took place on twitter over the last week, and after a good decision from Minoru Suzuki, TAKA and Taichi will face off one on one at K-DOJO’s upcoming show on August 22nd at Shunjuku FACE.
The even more interesting fact of this match is that the loser will be expelled from Suzuki-gun.
