I think Kenny said on BTE whilst with New Japan how gruelling the G1 is.

I thought that was one of the best crowds New Japan has had. Especially how hot they were for the main event. And they waited so long to even touch and the crowd loved it. Larry Zbyszko will love this match.

The Japanese Hollywood Hogan moment for sure. It was like if you combined BATB 96 and the first time Sting returned to take on the nWo into one moment.
