NJPW: Two Survivor Series-Style Main Events Friday & Saturday



Throughout the next three weeks, New Japan will be producing eight championship matches spread across six different shows. In preparation, two 5-on-5 Survivor Series-style elimination matches will be the main events of both Friday and Saturday’s Korakuen Hall shows. There will be a special over-the-top rope stipulation added so that no one has to eat a pin going into their respective title bouts.
