This week New Japan Pro Wrestling returns with new episodes on AXS TV and we kick it off in a monstrous way. This Friday we jump into another prestigious NJPW tournament – the Best of the Super Juniors! The 26th installment of this historic single-elimination tournament takes the top junior heavyweights and pits them one on one for the prize of being called the very best in that division.
Another marquee matchup we will see features two recent former IWGP Heavyweight Champions locking horns. The “Ace of New Japan” Hiroshi Tanahashi and “Switchblade” Jay White will step into the ring with one common goal – to win back the gold. Both men are determined, and with a rich history between the two you should prepare for an all-out war.
IWGP United States Champion, Juice Robinson, is also in action. But he may have to watch his back from this mysterious, possible lunatic, “MOX” person. Is there anyway Juice can shield his title from being captured?
It all goes down in a special 2-Hour event THIS FRIDAY 8/7c.
