Hiromu Takahashi and BUSHI to be paired opposite El Phantasmo and Taiji Ishimori in six man
After last night’s IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship main event, El Phantasmo challenged retaining champion Hiromu Takahashi to a title bout, a match Hiromu gladly accepted on the condition that he and BUSHI be allowed to challenge for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships in return.
Although title match decisions are still pending, this double challenge has been reflected in a change to tonight’s card. The originally scheduled six man tag bout that would have seen Tomoaki Honma, Master Wato and SHO face Hiromu Takahashi, BUSHI and Tetsuya Naito will now instead see the Los Ingobernables trio take on Yujiro Takahashi, Phantasmo and Ishimori.
ELP, Ishimori and Yujiro were originally slated to face Suzuki-Gun in the form of Minoru Suzuki, Yoshinobu Kanemaru and El Desperado. They will now instead take on the Hontai/CHAOS team of SHO, Wato and Honma.
