[NJPW News] New Japan announced the return of the NEVER shows as well as the inclusion that a title will be formed with the the renewal of the project. NEVER is all about giving the spotlight to the young and up and coming talent in not only NJPW but to other young wrestlers from other promotions, like DDT & K-DOJO to name a few.
The new NEVER Championship will be an Openweight belt with no restrictions on height or weight. The tournament will take place on the November 15 and 19 shows at the new SHIBUYA-AX in Tokyo, Japan. No wrestlers have been announced for the tournament, but with Tetsuya Naito potentially going after the IWGP Heavyweight belt in November it is not known if he will be included in the NEVER tournament.
