Lio Rush Challenges Takahashi, Sinn Bodhi Becomes US Citizen


New Japan held their New Beginning show today in Osaka, and it looks as though Hiromu Takahashi has a new challenger for his IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. Following the LIJ match, Lio Rush appeared via pre-recorded video to challenge Hiromu. Takahashi got on the mic and accepted Rush’s challenge.

Takahashi then rushed to the back, hoping to confront Rush, but he wasn’t present at the event. NJPW has not yet officially announced when the title match will take place. You can see the video from NJPW’s official Twitter account below:
