Jushin Liger may have made some news abroad with his upcoming appearance in NXT, but he's still making waves in his home country and promotion of New Japan Pro Wrestling. While most of the roster (and Michael Elgin) is embroiled in the G1 Climax, Liger has decided to have his own tournament, one whose opponents are asleep. That's right, Liger is straight up disturbing wrestlers as they sleep. The video depicting this wrestling thought experiment is after the jump:

That's right, Liger tried pinning Togi Makabe, Manabu Nakanishi, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and Tomoaki Honma. On one hand, he's ribbing guys trying to sleep off a night of drinking. In any country, that's a dick move. But on the other, it really is funny to watch, especially the one at the end. Honma is the only one who actually gets pinned, but he has a very good reason. I won't spoil it.
