NJPW

Earlier today, New Japan Pro Wrestling announced the line up for their annual Battle of the Super Juniors Tournament with the winner getting a title shot at current IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, Kenny Omega.

Block A
Jushin Thunder Liger
Kyle O’Riley
Gedo
Trent Baretta
Barbaro Cavernario
Ryusuki Taguchi
Chase Owens
Yohei Komatsu

Block B
Alex Shelley
Bobby Fish
Kushida
David Finlay (the son of Fit Finlay)
Mascara Dorada
Nick Jackson (of the Young Bucks)

The tournament is formatted so that all the participants in Block A and Block B wrestle everyone in their block in a Round Robin format. The winners of Block A & Block B will then face each other in the final match to determine the winner of the tournament. (I should note that this format is identical to NJPW’s G1 Climax Tournament held later this summer)

The dates for the events will run from May 22nd to June 7. Click HERE to see NJPW’s full listings and information on each event that will be holding tournament matches.
