New Japan Pro Wednesday on Thursday (9/4) The Destruction Tour Is Underway

Destruction Comes To Beppu, Kagoshima & Kobe

The focal points of the Destruction tour are three huge shows in Beppu, Kagoshima & Kobe. The main event of the entire tour will be the IWGP Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship Match between Tetsuya Naito & Jay White. Almost exactly one year since betraying CHAOS and becoming the new leader of Bullet Club, White looks to take Naito’s IC Title, as a way to salve the wound of losing the IWGP Heavyweight Championship back in April. What will Bullet Club do to ring in one year of the Switchblade Era?

All three shows will be available on NJPWWorld.com.
