The NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Titles Will Be Defended At NJPW's ROAD TO POWER STRUGGLE Show
With Power Struggle less than two weeks away, New Japan Pro-Wrestling will start its build towards their final 2020 pay-per-view with their first show that features CHAOS defending the NEVER Openweight titles.
The Road To Power Struggle begins Friday!
New Japan Pro-Wrestling has confirmed that CHAOS (YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii & Hirooki Goto) will defend their NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team titles against Suzuki-Gun (DOUKI, Zack Sabre Junior & Taichi). This will be the second title defense for CHAOS as the trio is coming off a win over Kazuchika Okada, SHO & Toru Yano at NJPW New Japan Road 2020.
In the co-main event, Los Ingobernables De Japon (SANADA & Tetsuya Naito) will fight BULLET CLUB (Dick Togo & EVIL) in a tag team affair. Naito is scheduled to put the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championships on the line against EVIL at the pay-per-view on Nov. 7, so this is just the latest chapter in their storied rivalry.
The kick-off tour to Power Struggle will also see Hiroshi Tanahashi & Kota Ibushi team together with Tomoaki Honma to take on rivals Gedo, KENTA & Jay White of the BULLET CLUB. Tanahashi is set to battle KENTA for the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship Contract and the 2020 G1 Climax winner will also put his briefcase on the line against Jay White.
