NEVER Six-Man Tag Team title match set for NJPW Kizuna Road

NJPW has revealed the cards for their next two televised events.

NJPW will be back at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo for Kizuna Road shows on Thursday, July 1 and Friday, July 2. Both shows will begin at 5:30 a.m. Eastern time and will be available for free on New Japan World.

The July 2 show will be headlined by NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champions Tomohiro Ishii, Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI defending their titles against Yuji Nagata, Satoshi Kojima & Hiroyoshi Tenzan. The match was set up by a challenge that was issued by Nagata after Ishii, Goto & YOSHI-HASHI retained their titles against EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi & Dick Togo at this Tuesday's Kizuna Road show.

Ishii vs. Nagata, Goto vs. Kojima, and YOSHI-HASHI vs. Tenzan are set for the July 1 Kizuna Road show. Ishii vs. Nagata will be the main event.

During the angle where Nagata challenged Ishii, Goto & YOSHI-HASHI to the NEVER Six-Man title match, Ishii gave Nagata a forearm strike. Nagata responded by dropping Ishii with a forearm strike of his own.
