With Wrestle Kingdom 15 firmly in our rear view mirror, we’re moving on to New Japan Pro Wrestling’s annual February spectacular!
This year, New Beginning is split up into three shows, same as last year. All three shows, naturally, will air live and in full on NJPW World, so why not watch along with the best pro wrestling community on the internet?
Today’s action takes place in Aichi’s Dolphin’s Arena, kicking off at a ripe 3:30AM Eastern / 12:30AM Pacific, and is headlined by Shingo Takagi putting his NEVER Openweight Championship on the line against Hiroshi Tanahashi!
Chaos (Kazuchika Okada & Toru Yano) over Bullet Club (EVIL & Yujiro Takahashi) by pinfall with a schoolboy from Yano on Yujiro.
Kota Ibushi, Master Wato, SHO, & Tomoaki Honma over Los Ingobernables de Japon (BUSHI, Hiromu Takahashi, SANADA, & Tetsuya Naito) by pinfall with Shock Arrow from SHO on BUSHI.
Great-O-Khan over Hiroyoshi Tenzan by pinfall with the Dominator, forcing Tenzan to stop using the Mongolian Chop. (Loser Must Stop Using the Mongolian Chop Match)
Will Ospreay over Satoshi Kojima by pinfall with Storm Breaker. (No Disqualification Match)
Hiroshi Tanahashi over Shingo Takagi (c) by pinfall with High Fly Flow to win the NEVER Openweight Championship.
