NJPW Announces ‘Best Of The Super Juniors’ Blocks & Complete List Of Tournament Matches

Published

on

New Japan Pro-Wrestling has officially released the blocks for this year’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament, as well as the full match cards for every single show.

The tour will feature 15 events spread across 3 weeks of non-stop action, including a run that will see a staggering 40 tournament matches take place within the span of just 5 days. As always, a win will be worth 2 points, a draw will be worth 1 point, and of course a loss yields nothing.


Best of the Super Juniors will kick off on Monday, May 13th and culminate with the tournament finals on Wednesday, June 5th. NJPW has also confirmed that Hiroshi Tanahashi will return at that show in a match against “Switchblade” Jay White.

NJPW Road To The New Beginning Results (1/23): New Champions Crowned, Tenzan Returns

Published

on

New Japan Pro-Wrestling continued the build to The New Beginning in Nagoya on Saturday with one of the more eventful Road To shows in recent memory.

Hiroyoshi Tenzan returned to action for the first time since New Year Dash, where a post-match attack from The Empire saw him leave the arena on a stretcher. Tenzan reunited with longtime partner Satoshi Kojima but was unable to score a tag team win over his attacks. He faces Great O-Khan on January 30 in Nagoya.


2020 Super J-Cup winner El Phantasmo and his Bullet Club partner Taiji Ishimori recaptured the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships in the main event.

El Desperado and Kanemaru won the titles last September at the end of a tournament. Prior to that, the belts were left vacant when YOH of Roppongi 3K, one half of the champions at the time, suffered a torn ACL.

NJPW Road To The New Beginning Results (1/18): Hiroshi Tanahashi & Master Wato vs BUSHI & Shingo Takagi

Published

on

The Road to The New Beginning tour continued on Monday with the second of eight shows heading into Nagoya on January 30. This was largely the same card as Sunday in the same building, with a few minor tweaks.

Kojima teamed with a different Young Lion but was still unsuccessful against The Empire. The second match featured the same stars with the outcome reversed, and the third match was exactly the same.


Tanahashi & SHO swapped places, as did Shingo & Hiromu in the final two matches to continue their respective programs. Master Wato is 2-0 in main events on this tour so far.
