Now that the Road To Power Struggle, Power Struggle and 2018 Super Junior Tag League have all concluded, next up for New Japan Pro Wrestling after this week’s Global Wars with Ring Of Honor is the World Tag League tour beginning on November 17th in Kanagawa and ending December 9th in Iwate.
This year’s tour will feature seventeen events, while there are some changes to this year’s format. Unlike other years, there is only one pool of fourteen teams instead of the usual two blocks with the Finals taking place on December 9th. Also, in year’s past the winner would receive an IWGP Tag Team Championship opportunity at Wrestle Kingdom, but with the champions part of the field, it’s not known if this is still the case.
Here’s a look at this year’s World Tag League participants:
- Togi Makabe & Toa Henare
- Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima
- EVIL & SANADA
- Taichi & Zack Sabre Jr.
- Manabu Nakanishi & Yuji Nagata
