Pacific Rim: G1 Climax, Jon Moxley and Shota Umino

Fumi Saito has an in-person account of night five of the G1 Climax from Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. His thoughts on Will Ospreay vs. Kota Ibushi, how Lance Archer appears to be gaining respect and momentum, the crowd's reaction to  KENTA, and why his favorite match of the night was Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. ZSJ.

Plus, we go in-depth on Jon Moxley: what makes him different from other foreigners in Japan now, how he carries himself, what he has to prove, and Fumi predicts where he thinks Moxley will be on the card for Wrestle Kingdom at the Tokyo Dome in 2020. Moxley also has an interesting relationship with Young Lion Shota Umino. Has there ever been a relationship in history where a foreign wrestler regularly teams with a Young Lion in an attempt to elevate him?
