NJPW is back in action on Saturday with their big Destruction In Hiroshima show. The show will air live on NJPW World from the Hiroshima Sun Plaza Hall, and the show will kick off at 5:00 am EDT. This show will have commentary feeds in both Japanese and English, so there’s something for everyone.
Four IWGP championships will be on the line on this show, and Roppongi Vice will have their final match (and no, I am not over in a corner somewhere sobbing about that).
The main event will see Hiroshi Tanahashi put his IWGP Intercontinental Championship on the line against Zack Sabre Jr., and since ZSJ made Tana tap out on the first night of the G1 Climax tournament this year, this match should be extra interesting.
