-Will Ospreay and Robbie Eagles vs. El Phantasmo and Taiji Ishimori.
-Kota Ibushi and Juice Robinson vs. Yujiro Takahashi and Hikuleo.

Powell’s POV: This event will not stream live on New Japan World. Rather, it is available for $24.99 via FITE.TV. The event begins today at 11:30 a.m. CT/12:30 p.m. ET. Unfortunately, I will not be able to cover this event live because I will be covering the CM Punk appearance at Starrcast III followed by NXT Takeover UK: Cardiff, and then AEW All Out on Saturday night. That said, it looks like a fun show and my guess is that Kenta takes the Never Openweight Championship.
