How fitting that here, on the eve of Valentines Day, New Japan has unveiled the line-ups for their Feb. 23 - 24 shows with Ring of Honor (ROH) at Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall - both of which feature Kenny Omega teaming with Kota Ibushi for the first time since reuniting at New Beginning in Sapporo last month.
Golden☆Lovers are back and, despite Being The Elite repeatedly telling us Bullet Club is fine, Kenny and Kota sure will be wrestling a lot of guys in the faction Omega... leads? Used to lead? Co-leads?
Here are the cards for both nights, which you’ll be able to watch with English language commentary from Kevin Kelley and Don Callis, on NJPWWorld.com:
