New Japan Pro-Wrestling held a press conference on Monday to announce the matches for their next two events. New Japan Road & Sengoku Lord will be NJPW’s third and fourth shows with fans, since their return from hiatus on June 15th. Sengoku Lord will feature three title matches, including newly crowned IWGP Double Champion EVIL’s first defense of his newly won titles.
The newly crowned champion will face his former stablemate, and former friend from his days in the NJPW Dojo, Hiromu Takahashi. EVIL had little to say about his win over Tetsuya Naito during Monday’s press conference, “Watch the match and you’ll see all there is to say. I saw right through everything he had to offer.” The new Bullet Club member is letting his actions in the ring speak for themself.
