Newly added: Team 2000 Reunion opposite a trio of battle hardened veterans!
Freshly announced for the card is a six man tag team match that sees Jun Akiyama of AJPW team with freelancer Shiro Koshinaka and Dradition’s Tatsumi Fujinami against Hiro Saito, Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan. Tenzan, Kojima and Saito have a history together that goes back to the days of nWo Japan and Team 2000, and now these three reunite opposite All Japan legend Jun Akiyama, former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Shiro Koshinaka and Tatsumi Fujinami. On January 4, Fujinami will join Liger for the first of his retirement matches, and this is a chance for the original Dragon to get a momentum building win.
