Only four will come into the night with a shot at winning the block. The winner will either be Tetsuya Naito, Jay White, Jon Moxley or Hirooki Goto. The show is set to take place on Sunday, August 11, live from Nippon Budokan in Chiyoda, Tokyo.

B-Block tournament matches

Toru Yano (4-4) vs. Jeff Cobb (3-5)

Tomohiro Ishii (4-4) vs. Taichi (3-5)

Jon Moxley (5-3) vs. Juice Robinson (3-5)

Hirooki Goto (5-3) vs. Shingo Takagi (3-5)

Tetsuya Naito (5-3) vs. Jay White (5-3)

The first two tournament matches will make no impact on who advances to the final but Taichi will take on Tomohiro Ishii in a rematch from Dominion that saw Ishii leave with Taichi’s NEVER Openweight Championship. If both Shingo Takagi and Juice Robinson play spoiler, the winner of Tetsuya Naito and Jay White takes the block.

After both started their tournament with a 1-3 record, Tetsuya Naito and Jay White have gone on to win their last four matches and put a stranglehold on the block. The night is very likely going to come down to whoever wins their match as the leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon takes on the leader of the Bullet Club.
