NJPW G1 Climax 29 results, winner: Kota Ibushi tops Jay White in epic 2019 finals match

In an epic finale to New Japan Pro-Wrestling's G1 Climax 29 on Monday, Kota Ibushi defeated Jay White in the finals of the tournament to win the briefcase and a shot at IWGP heavyweight champion Kazuchika Okada next January at WrestleKingdom 14. Of course, that's assuming Ibushi retains his briefcase and Okada hangs onto the title until then, but fans surely want this showdown to start the new year.

Should Ibushi and Okada meet at WrestleKingdom, it will be a rematch of their tremendous bout from Saturday in the finals of the A block. It was one of only two losses Okada suffered during the tournament with the other coming to SANADA, who will likely receive a title opportunity at an upcoming NJPW event.

Also likely setup is a third match between IWGP United States champion Jon Moxley and former champion Juice Robinson. Moxley, in his first NJPW match, took the title from Robinson, but Robinson got retribution by beating Moxley in the G1 and eliminating him from winning the B block. The two squared off face-to-face following a tag team match on Monday, and a title rematch for Robinson surely seems to be in the cards.

Below you can find the full match results from this year's G1 Climax 29 tournament with the final standings listed in the table below.
