New Japan Pro Wrestling has held its first show since Dominion today in Korakuen Hall. New Japan Road was not a big show but it did have a very intriguing moment. That, of course, came when Hiromu Takahashi teased joining Bullet Club.
As most would remember, Takahashi did not take it well when EVIL turned on Los Ingobernables de Japon. This is the first time they have been in a match together since the turn. Takahashi appeared very heelish at the beginning of the match and kept his jacket on. When he got in the ring with EVIL Takahashi took off his jacket to reveal a Bullet Club shirt.
He then pointed a finger gun at Tetsuya Naito and BUSHI before turning on EVIL to reveal this as a ruse. This is all playing into their upcoming IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championship match at Sengoku Lord.
Here is the rest of the results from New Japan Road:
- Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima def. Yota Tsuji & Yuya Uemura
- Tomohiro Ishii, Toru Yano, YOSHI-HASHI & SHO def. Togi Makabe, Tomoaki Honma, Ryusuke Taguchi & Gabriel Kidd
- SANADA & Shingo Takagi def. El Desperado & DOUKI
