We’re headed towards New Japan Pro Wrestling’s next huge show in the form of G1 Supercard, and that means only one thing— New Japan Cup!
A thirty-two-man single elimination tournament spread across twelve shows, the winner earns a shot at a singles heavyweight-eligible title of his choice. All twelve shows, naturally, will air live and in full on NJPW World, so why not watch along with the best pro wrestling community on the internet?
Today’s action takes place in Hyogo’s Baycom Gymnasium, kicking off at a brisk 3AM Eastern / 11PM Pacific (gotta love Daylight Saving Time, folks!), and features four of our first round matches, the winners of which will face off in two second round matches on March 16.
Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs. Ryusuke Taguchi (New Japan Cup First Round Match)
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Shota Umino (New Japan Cup First Round Match)
EVIL vs. Zack Sabre, Jr. (New Japan Cup First Round Match)
Kota Ibushi vs. Tetsuya Naito (New Japan Cup First Round Match)
Enjoy the show!
