The G1 (Grade One) Climax is a seasonal wrestling tournament that is a weeklong event held mid-season by the New Era of Sports Entertainment promotion. It is usually (and currently) held as a round-robin, with the top 2 from each two blocks wrestling into a semi-final and final stage to decide that year's winner. The winner of each block is determined by a points system; two points for a victory, one point for a draw, and zero points for a loss.
