Tenryu will be taking part in a 6 man tag match along with Masayuki Kono and Shiro Koshinaka as they take on the new DESPERADO team KAZMA SAKAMOTO and NOSAWA Rongai along with the Great Muta. Tenryu and Muta have history stemming back to WAR in October of 1996 as their showdown even set an attendance record at the Osaka Prefectural Gymnasium.

This will mark the first and only time for the veteran to compete in the promotion as Tenryu winds down to his retirement show on November 15th. It should also be noted that Tenryu also stated that this will be his final match at the “Holy Land” of the Korakuen Hall as well.
