The final cards have been determined for the Road to Destruction tour. The tour kicks off on Wednesday with the first of three consecutive nights in Korakuen Hall, all headlined by tag team main events that preview big matches coming up in Beppu, Kagoshima, Kobe and Ryogoku.
The main event on September 4 sees Hirooki Goto and Kazuchika Okada take on Shingo Takagi and SANADA. With Goto and Takagi facing off in Kobe on September 22, and Okada and SANADA set for an IWGP Heavyweight Championship clash in Ryogoku, how will this tag match play out?
On September 5, the main event will pit EVIL and Tetsuya Naito against Bad Luck Fale and Jay White. In Kobe on September 22, it’ll be Naito and White one on one for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. Will White stay tranquilo in this tag team match, or will he seek to take any advantage he can on Naito before he faces El Ingobernable for the title?
On September 6, it’s Ryusuke Taguchi and Hiroshi Tanahashi against Minoru Suzuki and Zack Sabre Junior. Once opponents in the New Japan Cup this year, Taguchi and Tanahashi make a powerful combination of Ace and Arse as they take on Suzuki-Gun. Can ZSJ get an upper hand on the Ace heading into his British Heavyweight Championship rematch in Beppu on September 15th?
After a one day break, the crew heads to Togane in Chiba on September 8th, where Yuji Nagata will have his 35th anniversary in the wrestling world. As previously announced, the ten man tag main event sees him team with Jyushin Thunder Liger, Manabu Nakanishi, Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan against a BULLET CLUB team of Jado, Yujiro Takahashi, Tanga Loa, Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale.
All the action from the first four nights on the road to Destruction will air live on NJPW World! Don’t miss a second; wherever you are, be there!
