Hiromu Takahashi is your new IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion.
The Time Bomb defeated Bullet Club’s Taiji Ishimori at this morning’s WrestleKingdom 15 (night two) to begin his third-reign with the Junior title, marking the second year in a row he’s won it back at NJPW’s biggest show of the year.
Highlights from “WRESTLE KINGDOM 15 in TOKYO DOME Night 2” (Jan 5th)
Could Hiromu Takahashi keep the momentum from last night?
Or will Taiji Ishimori finish off Takahashi and continue to rule the junior division?

Takahashi earned this opportunity by winning this year’s BOSJ tournament, then besting the Super J-Cup winner (El Phantasmo) on night one of WrestleKingdom 15.
