Update: G1 Night 2 was held early this morning and can now be streamed for free on New Japan World.
The first night of New Japan’s G1 Climax tournament featured three of the best matches of the year so far. The second even happens this morning, at 5:30 AM ET / 1:30 AM PT, at the legendary Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, with the first set of matches from this year’s B block. And guess what: it’s entirely free on New Japan World, New Japan’s answer to the WWE Network.
The show features the first action in this year’s B block, meaning we’ll see the first G1 matches for Kenny Omega, Tetsuya Naito, IWGP Intercontinental Champion Michael Elgin and more. And we’ll see the entire A block in tag team action, as well as New Japan’s other full-time talent.
Here’s a full rundown of the card:

Kenny Omega vs. YOSHI-HASHI
Toru Yano vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima
