Chaos Vs. The Third Generation Set For NJPW's July 2 Kizuna Road Show

Will Kojima & co. leave with the gold?

The NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship will be on the line at the final Kizuna Road event on Friday, July 2. 

Chaos' YOSHI-HASHI, Tomohiro Ishii and Hirooki Goto will defend the gold against Satoshi Kojima, Hiroyoshi Tenzan and Yuji Nagata, three members of New Japan Pro-Wrestling's fabled Third Generation. 

Nagata, Tenzan and Kojima stepped forward as the next challengers earlier this week after Chaos successfully defended the title against Bullet Club's EVIL, Dick Togo and Yujiro Takahashi. The Third Generation entered the ring and Nagata challenged the champions to "test themselves" before Blue Justice smacked Ishii to the mat to end the confrontation. 

The match will be the Chaos' team's seventh defence of the NEVER Openweight 6-Man Title since they captured the gold in August 2020. 

Four other matches have also been set for the July 2 Kizuna Road show. Check out the card below:
• Kota Ibushi vs. Yota Tsuji
• Shingo Takagi vs. Yuya Uemura
• Minoru Suzuki, El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs. Jado, El Phantasmo & Taiji Ishimori
• Tetsuya Naito, SANADA & BUSHI vs. Dangerous Tekkers & DOUKI
• Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI & Hirooki Goto (c) vs. Satoshi Kojima, Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Yuji Nagata - NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship
