Updated NJPW G1 Climax 30 standings and scenarios

g1standingspost.jpeg

Eight wrestlers remain mathematically alive as NJPW's G1 Climax 30 enters its final stretch.

Four competitors still have a shot in each block with one A Block show and one B Block show remaining before Sunday's final. In A Block, Jay White controls his own destiny. In B Block, it's EVIL who controls his own fate. 

After that, things get more cloudy.

White, Kota Ibushi, Kazuchika Okada, and Will Ospreay still have a chance to win A Block.

The most likely A Block scenarios would be White winning with a victory over Ishii or Ibushi winning with a win over Taichi and a White loss. Ospreay needs to win and get help. Okada needs to win or draw and Ibushi and White both to lose. 

In B Block, EVIL, Tetsuya Naito, SANADA, and Zack Sabre Jr. are still in the running. 

A scenario exists in B Block where there could be a three-way tie for the lead heading into Sunday, although it seems far more likely that Saturday's EVIL vs. SANADA matchup will determine the B Block winner. 

Here are the updated standings and scenarios:
