Eight of the shows will be focused on the 24th G1 Climax tourney and three shows from Dominion 6.21 will wrap things up. Mauro Ranallo and Josh Barnett will be back to call the action.

Season one wraps up a week from this Friday with Kaz Okada vs. AJ Styles for the IWGP title. As always, get your recaps here every Friday night/Saturday morning.
