Korakuen card changed as Third Gen steps to CHAOS

Ten man tag altered after BULLET CLUB defeat

Last night in Korakuen Hall, the CHAOS team of Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI and Tomohiro Ishii put in another hard fought and gutsy performance to defend the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championships for a sixth time. Fans did not have to wait long to find out who their next challengers would be however. 

Third Generation members Yuji Nagata, Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan hit the ring immediately after CHAOS’ success, with Nagata taking the mic. Nagata directly appealed to Ishii, inviting the Stone Pitbull and his partners to ‘test themselves’; a test Ishii gladly accepted. 

Backstage Ishii said that after three defences against BULLET CLUB, the group were in the rear view mirror, and CHAOS only has eyes for the Third Gen. That has led to a major card change tonight in the Hall. 

The previously scheduled CHAOS vs BULLET CLUB ten man tag on the third match of the card will now see five of CHAOS face five of hontai. Ishii, Goto and YOSHI-HASHI will team with Toru Yano and Kazuchika Okada tonight against Togi Makabe, Tomoaki Honma, and new NEVER 6 contenders, Tenzan, Nagata and Kojima!
