The third and final New Japan Pro Wrestling New Beginning show has just finished, with two big championship matches headlining the show.
Jay White was looking to take the IWGP Heavyweight Championship from Hiroshi Tanahashi, while Taiji Ishimori was scheduled to face Ryusuke Taguchi with the Bone Soldier’s title on the line.
