New Japan Pro Wrestling issued the following press release announcing that BUSHI, YOH, and indie legend Amazing Red will be joining the Super J-Cup tournament, which is set to take place all around California at the end of August, concluding at the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach. See the details below.
American independent legend Amazing Red joins CHAOS’ YOH and BUSHI from Los Ingobernables De Japon in the SUPER J-CUP 2019 lineup.
Amazing Red will make his first appearance for NJPW in the Super J-Cup. A 21-year veteran of the global wrestling scene, Red found a huge fanbase in the early years of Ring of Honor. Forming a tag team with AJ Styles, he won the ROH World Tag Team Championships in 2003, one of 23 championships attained in a decorated career. Red’s innovative and high-flying style inspired a generation of junior heavyweights in the United States and beyond.
YOH is making his first Super J-Cup appearance. He is a three-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion with RPG3K partner SHO, who is also part of the tournament.
BUSHI entered the 2016 Super J-Cup as a wild card participant, but lost to eventual finalist Yoshinobu Kanemaru. He has held the NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Championships three times and is also a former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team and singles champion.
