Chaos Retain NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Title At NJPW Kizuna Road 2021
Chaos' reign continues
The team of YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii and Hirooki Goto successfully retained their NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Championship for a sixth time earlier today.
The Chaos team faced off against Bullet Club's EVIL, Dick Togo and Yujiro Takahashi at today's Kizuna Road show at Korakuen Hall and the champions picked up the win after 32 minutes.
Bullet Club tried their usual underhanded tactics throughout the match, first knocking down Red Shoes Uno before following up with pimp cane and chair shots to Tomohiro Ishii. Dick Togo then later choked Ishii with a garrote after EVIL and Yujiro had caught YOSHI-HASHI and Goto with Low Blows.
It wasn't enough to keep Ishii down, though, and The Stone Pitbull escaped and decked Togo with his Vertical Drop Brainbuster finisher for the 1-2-3.
EVIL and Tomohiro Ishii butted heads following the match, hinting their issues were not resolved today. The next challengers also seemingly stepped forward as Satoshi Kojima, Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Yuji Nagata entered the ring after the match. Nagata then issued the challenge and smacked Ishii to the mat to end the confrontation.
