The finals of the NJPW World Tag League took place yesterday. Juice Robinson and David Finlay defeating EVIL and SANADA to win this year’s tournament. EVIL and SANADA had won the previous 2 years. Robinson and Finlay are now the number one contenders for the IWGP Tag Team Championship, currently held by the Guerrillas of Destiny, who were challenged to meet at Wrestle Kingdom 14.

Chris Jericho will also be at Wrestle Kingdom 14 on January 5 when he challenges Hiroshi Tanahashi and returned to send another message to Tanahashi, which you can see in the video above. Jericho let Tanahashi that time is running out, but it will be one of Tanahashi’s greatest matches, along with his last one.

Ryu Lee (Dragon Lee in CMLL), via video, appeared and challenged Jushin Liger to a future match. Liger is set to have his final match at Wrestle Kingdom 14 and does not yet have an opponent. Liger responded that he wanted to face someone else, someone who returned from a neck injury (Hiromu Takahashi), but also put over Lee, so a triple threat match could be in the works.

Jon Moxley also returned at NJPW World Tag League finals looking for his IWGP US Championship. Moxley was stripped of the title in October after weather issues forced him off the NJPW King of Pro-Wrestling card against Juice Robinson. Lance Archer stepped in and won the title, now Moxley wants it back in a Texas Deathmatch at Wrestle Kingdom 14.

Moxley made his way through the crowd and ended up dropping both Archer and Minoru Suzuki with the Paradigm Shift. He then went to the floor and grabbed a microphone. “I will take my belt back. Tokyo Dome! Wrestle Kingdom. Texas Deathmatch,” Moxley said. The two then brawled around the ring and out towards the backstage area.

NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 14 will take place at the Tokyo Dome on January 4 and January 5, 2020.
