As we reported earlier this weekend, the Young Bucks have announced their move to the heavyweight tag team division after a record seven reigns with the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships.
The announcement was made at Saturday’s NJPW Honor Rising event in Tokyo, where both Nick and Matt Jackson took offense to claims made by Kenny Omega that the Golden Lovers were the best team in the world. New Japan has since confirmed that it will be the Golden Lovers vs. The Young Bucks at the promotion’s upcoming return to Long Beach, California on March 25th.
In addition, “Switchblade” Jay White will defend the IWGP United States Championship against Hangman Page, who has been picking up some solid victories in the midst of Bullet Club completely imploding. Here’s the updated match card:
