Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan

New Japan Pro-Wrestling returned to Korakuen Hall this Friday for their second of three New Japan Road events, headlined by two championship matches.

The unlikely super duo of Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kota Ibushi had been building up momentum ever since the first tour after Wrestle Kingdom 13, and now that momentum has carried them into a major title win!

The two defeated Bullet Club’s Guerrillas of Destiny to win the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, a first for the “Golden Star” Ibushi, and believe it or not only the third time ever for the “Ace”.
