Today we are looking at this wrestler’s appearance in the 2008 G1 Climax as his one and only run. Today we are talking about Shinjiro Otani!

    The G1 Climax is New Japan Pro Wrestling's elite summer tournament. Not everyone gets an opportunity to compete in the G1 Climax. Some wrestlers never appear, while some compete year in and year out. Every other week, host Ryan Neitzey will discuss the run of those wrestlers that have only competed in this exclusive tournament only once.

For anyone who misses GM mode in the WWE video games this is the show for you! The only thing missing is the competition with someone to book RAW. Amazing show! Keep it up!
