May 22 Nagoya card determined

Tanahashi, Shingo Takagi to face off in main event on NJPW return

The card has been set for NJPW’s first live event since May 4. The event from Nagoya’s Congress Center Event Hall will be headlined by Shingo Takagi and Hiroshi Tanahashi, picking up from where they left off  after their NEVER Openweight Championship classic in the same town of Nagoya on January 30. Takagi and Tanahashi will team up with BUSHI and Ryusuke Taguchi respectively. 

Also on the night’s card, after Kota Ibushi issued a challenge to Jeff Cobb at Satsuma no Kuni in April, the two engage in tag team action, as Ibushi and Tomoaki Honma face Cobb and Great-O-Khan. 

You can find the full card for the event here. Live action returns to NJPW World May 24 in Korakuen Hall with card announcements to follow. 

Card subject to change. In line with COVID countermeasures, participating wrestlers selected after screening, and consultation with training and medical staff, including on any after effects arising from periods of isolation.
