The semi-finals and finals of the 2016 New Japan Cup will air on NJPWWorld.com starting at 3AM est. 12am pst.
The winner of the New Japan Cup will receive a title opportunity of their choosing at Invasion Attack in April. Tetsuya Naito announced to the live crowd that he will not take his title opportunity at Invasion Attack should he win. If you have been following Naito for the last 6 months this makes sense to you, if you haven’t been then it probably doesn’t. Naito’s whole gimmick right now is that you can’t tell him what to do, he will do things on his own time.
The card for the show is as follows:
Jay White vs. David Finlay
Jushin Liger and Juice Robinson vs. Tiger Mask and Captain New Japan
Yoshi-Hashi and Tomohiro Ishii (Chaos) vs. Bushi & Evil (Los Ingobernables)
Toru Yano (Chaos) vs. Tetsuya Naito (Los Ingobernables) in semifinals of New Japan Cup
Michael Elgin vs. Hirooki Goto in semifinals of New Japan Cup
Katsuyori Shibata & Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima
Yuji Nagata & Manabu Nakanishi vs. Kazushi Sakuraba & Kazuchika Okada(Chaos)
Hiroshi Tanahashi & Togi Makabe & Tomoaki Honma vs. Bad Luck Fale & Tama Tonga & Yujiro Takahashi (Bullet Club)
