The Good Brothers announced for NJPW Strong Tag Team Turbulence


Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson will return to an NJPW ring for the first time since 2016.

The Good Brothers were announced as participants in NJPW Strong's Tag Team Turbulence tournament, to be held beginning in July. 

Gallows and Anderson last appeared for NJPW in February 2016. They left the promotion to join WWE in something of a talent raid, as AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Gallows and Anderson all left NJPW for WWE in January or February of that year.  

Gallows and Anderson will be part of an eight-team field. Clark Connors & TJP, Yuji Nagata & Ren Narita, Fred Yehi & Wheeler Yuta, Kevin Knight & The DKC, Jorel Nelson & Royce Isaacs, Brody King & Chris Dickinson, plus JR Kratos & Danny Limelight will comprise the rest of the tournament. 

The Tag Team Turbulence tournament will kick off on the July 16 episode of Strong. All four first round matches will air on that show. 

The first round matches are:

  • The Good Brothers vs. Clark Connors & TJP
  • Yuji Nagata & Ren Narita vs. Fred Yehi & Wheeler Yuta
  • Kevin Knight & The DKC vs. Jorel Nelson & Royce Isaacs
  • Brody King & Chris Dickinson vs. JR Kratos & Danny Limelight

Gallows and Anderson held the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship three times in NJPW. The Good Brothers also won the 2013 World Tag League tournament.
