Voices of Wrestling is once again hosting a New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax Pick’Em contest. For those who entered last year or have entered any of our other recent pick’em contests (Best of the Super Juniors or New Japan Cup), you’ll be familiar with the format. For our first-timers, welcome, this may seem overwhelming at first but you’ll get the hang of it quickly!

Like last year, we aren’t simply going to be picking who will win or be the runner-up in each block, no, we’re going to make you pick every single G1 Climax tournament match, determine who you think will win (or if there’s a draw) in addition to your G1 Climax 26 Block winners and runner-ups.

This year we’ve included a handy cheat sheet (downloadable at bit.ly/VOWG126-Cheatsheet) that will show the progress as you make your picks on the Google Form. This will make it easier for you to determine who you have taking home the top spot in each block, how your scoring will look when you’ve made all your picks, etc. It’ll make the picking process far easier so be sure to download it.

Please read all these rules carefully. While we’re available to take questions throughout the week on Twitter (@VoicesWrestling) or on our forums (voicesofwrestling.com/forums), this is a huge tournament with lots of participants. We may not get to every single question or issue, so, again, please read these carefully and make sure you understand the process before contacting us.

Throughout the process, we’ll calculate your points, give updates throughout the tournament at voicesofwrestling.com and voicesofwrestling.com/forums. At the end of the grueling G1 Climax tournament, we’ll crown a grand pick’em champion. That champion will receive tremendous gift from our contest sponsor IVPvideos.com. (Details on that below)


Note that we will ONLY accept entries completed through this Google Form. You can use the downloadable cheat sheet to help make your picks but we will only calculate picks through this Google Form. We cannot accept ballots or entries any other way.

Only one entry per person. Sign-ups will continue until Day 1 of the tournament (July 18)
