For five years now, Voices of Wrestling has hosted the premiere New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax Pick’Em contest.

If you’re new to our pick’em game here’s the quick and dirty: you’ll pick a winner for every single G1 Climax 28 tournament match, determine who you think will win (or if there’s a draw) and select your G1 Climax 28 Block winners and runner-ups.

We’ve included a cheatsheet (downloadable at that will make it easier for you to determine who you have taking home the top spot in each block and how your scoring will look when you’ve made all your picks.

Please be sure to read all these rules carefully.

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.

At the end of the grueling G1 Climax 28 tournament, we’ll crown a grand pick’em champion. That champion and those who come in second and third in total point will receive free gifts from our gracious contest sponsors.
