NJPW Tag League Field Set

I don’t know Japan much, but I know news, and there’s quite a bit of intrigue from what I do know. Here’s the field:


Team WLW (Brian Breaker/Leland Race, and yes, that’s Harley’s kid)
Bullet Club (Adam Page/Yujiro Takahashi)
Guerrillas of Destiny
Henare/Manabu Nakanishi
Hiroshi Tanahashi/Juice Robinson (NXT’s jobber extraordinaire CJ Parker)
TenKoji (Hiroyoshi Tenzan/Satoshi Kojima, at a total combined age of 91)
War Machine (from ROH)
Tetsuya Naito and… eh, he hasn’t said yet.


Los Ingobernables de Japon (EVIL/SANADA)
Bullet Club (Chase Owens/Kenny Omega)
Bullet Club (Bad Luck Fale/BONE SOLDIER)
Great Bash Heel (Togi Makabe/Tomoaki Honma)
Katsuyori Shibata/Yuji Nagata
Chaos (Hirooki Goto/Tomohiro Ishii)
Chaos (Kaz Okada/YOSHI-HASHI)
Yoshi Tatsu/Billy Gunn (seriously)

Now, I don’t know why the two CHAOS teams are in the same block when the Bullet Club got split 2-2 (Guerrillas are also Bullet Club), but there you go.  Also, Naito’s partner has to be someone outside of LIJ as EVIL and SANADA are already booked.

Each block does a full round-robin. Winners meet in the final. 2 for a win, 1 for a draw, just like the old time hockey of Eddie Shore and Toe Blake.
