NJPW Crowns New NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions at Summer Struggle (Clips)

NJPW Tomohiro Ishii Hirooki Goto and YOSHI-HASHI

The NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championships are vacant no longer following New Japan Summer Struggle night eight. YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii and Hirooki Goto defeated SHO, Toru Yano & Kazuchika Okada on the show, which took place on Sunday morning. You can see our own Ian Hamilton’s review of the show here and see clips from the match below.

The six-man titles were vacated at the start of the month after Evil said he didn’t want to defend the titles following his turn and exit from Los Ingobernables de Japon. This marks Goto and YOSHI-HASHI’s first runs with the titles; Ishii held the titles for just a day along with Beretta and Toru Yano after winning them at Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January of 2018 and losing them to Bullet Club the next night.
