IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title Match Set For NJPW Castle Attack

Who will walk away with the gold?

A new IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion will be crowned on Sunday as El Phantasmo, BUSHI and El Desperado will face off in a three-way for the gold on day two of Castle Attack. 

Hiromu Takahashi was originally scheduled to defend the belt against El Phantasmo on Sunday, but The Time Bomb was forced to relinquish the title after sustaining a left pectoral injury. 

ELP automatically remained in Sunday's match and Takahashi requested BUSHI take his place. El Desperado then added his name to the mixture after he and Yoshinobu Kanemaru regained the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship from Phantasmo and Taiji Ishimori on yesterday's Road To Castle Attack show.
