  1. A Block has a rather convoluted final day:

    Goto wins if he beats Marufuji and Tanahashi/Okada ends in a draw.
    Marufuji wins if he beats Goto and both Tanahashi & Fale lose their matches.
    Okada wins if he beats Tanahashi and both Marufuji & Fale lose their matches.
    Tanahashi wins if he beats Okada.
    Fale wins if he beats Tonga and both Goto & Tanahashi lose their matches.

    If none of those specific things happen you can get into weird situations like Okada, Goto, and Fale all winning, ending up in a three way tie, and having a rock, paper, scissors chain of wins against each other. I’d be interested to see how they’d handle that, though I expect that it’ll shake out as a clean win for either Okada or Tanahashi.
