IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship Match
EL DESPERADO & KOSHINOBU KANEMARU (c) vs. ROPPONGI 3K

The challengers did stereo dives over the ropes before the match started, and the two teams brawled on the outside. Suzuki-Gun controlled early on with their typical offense, brawling into the fans, throwing each other into chairs, etc. Sho eventually got the hot tag and hit a series of dropkicks and German suplexes, as the brawl continued on the outside by the non-legal men. Roppongi rallied after Kanemaru accidentally spit whiskey into his partner’s eyes, connecting with stereo running knee strikes. They tried for the 3K but Desperado recovered in time to block it. After a bit of back and forth the challengers lost track of Kanemaru and he blasted Sho with the whiskey bottle, rolling him up to steal the win.

Winners: Roppongi 3K


JUICE ROBINSON & DAVID FINLAY vs. YOSHI-HASHI & JAY WHITE

Juice got a bit too fired up to start, screaming obscenities at his opponents before Jay White swiftly took him to the mat and punished him with submissions. The CHAOS boys alternated in with quick tags, working over the lowest back of Finlay for several minutes until Robinson managed to get back into it. He flew off the top rope with a crossbody taking down White, working the fans into a frenzy as he connected with strikes and suplexes to the U.S. Champion. Yoshi-Hashi got involved here and there, but the commentators are really playing up that he’s somehow lost his fire or relevancy over the last few months, and speculated that he might not even be in the G1 Climax this year. In the end Juice reversed a Blade Runner and hit the Killswitch on White, pinning the champion in a surprisingly brief match.

Winners: Juice Robinson & David Finlay

Robinson grabbed the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Championship after the match and walked on/over White’s body, posing on the top rope as some of the fans cheered. Sort of mixed reaction after he disrespected the champion.

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.

Published

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.
