Episode 15
30m | May 24, 2021

On today’s episode, we are talking about someone who is quite possibly the largest wrestler that has been in any G1 CLimax in the history of G1 Climaxes. Standing at 6 foot 8, 500+ pounds, this man was a former yokozuna in sumo wrestling, competed at Wrestlemania 21, in kickboxing, in MMA, he’s done everything. Today will be looking into the career and the one and only G1 Climax appearance of Akebono!

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.
