The finals of the World Tag League are one of the last stops on the road to WrestleKingdom.  2019’s edition has proven to be no different as both Jon Moxley and hot free agent Dragon Lee, now known as Ryu Lee, made appearances to set up WrestleKingdom Matches.

Ryu Lee Challenges Jyushin Liger

Former CMLL star Dragon Lee has rebranded following the huge exit of his family from CMLL.  Lee is a former IWGP Junior champion and one of the world’s best luchadores so fans were hoping to see the masked man in a New Japan ring.  Fans got their wish granted as he appeared via video to announce that he was now known as Ryu Lee, talked up Liger’s legend, and then challenged Liger to a match.  No matter the name Ryu Lee is still one of the best and a showdown with Liger is one of the best matches we could possibly see as Liger continues his retirement tour.

Jon Moxley Challenges Lance Archer

The former IWGP US Champion Jon Moxley made his return to NJPW to cause some chaos.  He made his presence felt by hitting the Death Rider on both Archer and Minoru Suzuki.  Moxley never actually lost the US Championship, travel issues prevented him from defending, and he is now back for his title and challenged Archer to a Texas Death Match (Last Man Standing).  Some have also speculated that Moxley striking Suzuki could lead to a match between the two.

FinJuice Win World Tag League

The greatest streak in modern wrestling history is over, EVIL and SANADA have NOT won the World Tag League.  2019 has seen David Finlay and Juice Robinson emerge as the champions.  Finlay missed most of 2019 with an injury but ever since he came back he has had a fire lit underneath him and now alongside Juice Robinson he has the chance to win the IWGP heavyweight tag team championships at WrestleKingdom.  It’s a feel-good story for two babyfaces that have scratched and clawed their way up the card and now get their reward with a big title match at the Tokyo Dome.
