Team 3D’s IWGP Tag Title Defense Not Recognized by NJPW, 3D Still Champions


– It sounds like there may be some tension lingering between New Japan Pro Wrestling and TNA.

NJPW issued a press release earlier today to formally invalidate Team 3D’s IWGP Tag Team Title defense against The British Invasion on iMPACT last week where Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams captured the titles.

New Japan is not acknowledging the match or the title change. Team 3D are still the IWGP Tag Team Champions and their next defense of the belts will be one recognized by New Japan.

No word yet on how TNA will handle this or what the internal reaction is.

    I will tell you why they have the IGWP Tag Tiles. Cause we are talking about TNGay. If its gay its gotta be TNA.

    This has happened before in the WCW I don’t see nothing wrong with it personally. Wrestling in Japan isn’t anywhere near the level it once was and this is a way of promoting their brand. I don’t expect many people to get this because this site is notorious for criticising TNA at any oppotunity whether its jutified or not.

    Why is NJPW giving a serious statement about their tag titles, like wrestling isn’t scripted.

  • Wrestling/MMA GAWD!

    Why fuck does TNA have the IGWP Tag Titles in the first place? they shouldn’t even bother with it
