New Japan Pro-Wrestling has announced three more names for the upcoming 2019 Super J-Cup Tournament taking place in Washington and California later this month.
You can officially add YOH of Roppongi 3K, who will join his previously announced tag team partner SHO in the three-day tournament, as well as the masked sensation BUSHI of the Los Ingobernables de Japon faction.
Both names were expected, but the really big news coming out of Tokyo today is that junior heavyweight veteran Amazing Red, one of the true innovators and modern underrated greats of high-flying wrestling, will be making his NJPW debut as a part of the Super J-Cup.
Here’s the updated list of competitors:
- Amazing Red
- Dragon Lee
- Ryusuke Taguchi
- Taiji Ishimori
While not officially announced as one of the competitors, it’s assumed that Jushin Thunder Liger will compete as he is producing the tour for New Japan, and it’s largely taking place in the U.S. because he is returning at the end of the year at Wrestle Kingdom.
