G1 Climax 34 Format

This year, NJPW’s G1 Climax is returning to a 20-participant, two-block setup for the first time since 2021. The twenty wrestlers in G1 Climax 34 will be divided into two blocks of ten (A Block & B Block). Each wrestler faces the other nine wrestlers in the same block as theirs, earning two points for a victory, one point for a tie, and zero points if defeated.

For the 2024 tournament, the top three wrestlers in each block will advance, and the block winners will earn an automatic bid into the semifinals. Those who finish second and third in each block will have a mini-tournament to determine who goes through.

G1 Climax 34 Participants

18 of the 20 G1 Climax 34 participants will be announced at NJPW Soul on June 18, while the final two wrestlers for each block will be determined in upcoming qualifier tournaments.
