It was announced that the “Big Guns”, Zeus and Bodyguard, will be defending the World Tag belts against “Wild Burning” Jun Akiyama and Takao Omori on the June 25 show in Hokkaido.
The match comes about after Omori claimed a direct pin-fall over Bodyguard on the June 13 show. This will be the first challenge from Akiyama and Omori as team since March of 2015, whenever they suffered defeat as the then defending champions. Zeus and Bodyguard though are now on their third reign as champions after reclaiming the belts back on June 11 at the Korakuen Hall. Zeus previously stated that he aims to make this reign to be their strongest yet, but with Akiyama and Omori heading into their 25th anniversaries as pro-wrestling one must think that they will give it their all to be champions once more and solidify this milestone in their careers.
Below is the now updated event card for the show…
