NJPW crowns new NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champions

The titles changed hands in the main event of Tuesday's New Japan Road show.

The Chaos trio of Hirooki Goto, YOSHI-HASHI & YOH are NJPW's new NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champions.

Goto, YOSHI-HASHI & YOH won the NEVER Six-Man Tag Team titles by defeating House of Torture (EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi & SHO) in the main event of Tuesday's New Japan Road show at Korakuen Hall. YOH hit an elevated Direct Drive on SHO to get the win.

In the semi main event of the show, Toru Yano defeated Dick Togo in a dog cage match. Togo was locked in the cage for the beginning of the NEVER Six-Man title match, but he was freed at one point and House of Torture put Goto and YOSHI-HASHI in the cage. But Yano had a spare key and was able to free them. Chaos then locked the House of Torture members (other than SHO) in the cage leading into the finish.

House of Torture had been NEVER Six-Man Tag Team Champions since defeating Goto, YOSHI-HASHI & Tomohiro Ishii to win the titles in November 2021.

YOH was cleared to return to the ring for Tuesday's show after missing the previous two New Japan Road events. He was self isolating after testing positive for COVID-19.
