The schedules are all out of whack, but New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) isn’t letting 2020 go by without hosting all of their usual round robin tournaments, which means it’s time for Best of the Super Jr. 27 and World Tag League 2020!

These tournaments will take place across 17 dates, with the finals on Dec. 11. All of this year’s shows will be broadcast worldwide on New Japan's streaming service, NJPW World, with commentary in both English and Japanese.
