NJPW Global on Twitter

It’s that time of year again, and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) has assembled 16 of the best junior heavyweights in the world to compete in round robin action.

This year's version, the 25th annual, will take place across 15 dates for a spot in the finals June 4. Five shows emanating from Tokyo’s legendary Korakuen Hall will be broadcast worldwide on New Japan's streaming service, NJPW World, while the remaining tournament matches will go up on the service on a slight delay.

Our final day of block action kicks off at a ripe 5:30AM Eastern / 2:30AM Pacific, and it’s all tournament matches as we set up tomorrow’s finals. Current standings follow—
