New Japan Pro-Wrestling welcomed fans back to Korakuen Hall for the first time since February 22nd for New Japan Road. The show was headlined by Los Ingobernables de Japon getting a chance at revenge against the traitorous EVIL and his new friends Dick Togo & Taiji Ishimori.
A preview of this Saturday’s Sengoku Lord event, Monday’s show was stacked with tag matches. Shingo Takagi tried to reclaim his stolen NEVER title belt from El Desperado, but will have to wait until Sengoku Lord to get the physical belt back. Kazuchika Okada got a measure of revenge on Yujiro Takahashi for costing him the New Japan Cup. The two will face at Saturday’s event.
Elsewhere on the card, Young Lions like Tsuji & Uemura got time to shine, and the oft-injured YOSHI-HASHI returned. The entire event is available on NJPWWorld.com
