Hiroshi Tanahashi Injured

NJPW World Tag League 2017 Winners

Today, EVIL and SANADA won the 2017 World Tag League, winning a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Titles at WrestleKingdom 12 at The Tokyo Dome on January 4th. There’s only one little problem with them winning: they are 2/3 of the current NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions.

Well, NJPW has a solution for that problem. On the Road To The Dome show on December 17th in Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, BUSHI, EVIL, and SANADA will put their 6-man titles on the line against Bad Luck Fale, Tama Tonga, and Tanga Loa. And, there’s a good chance that the Bullet Club will walk out of Korakuen the new champions.

There were reporters tossed around, furniture thrown around, and general mayhem. You can see the whole presser for yourself in the video below.
