Bishamon Win Their Third Consecutive World Tag League

Bishamon have made history by being the first team to threepeat the World Tag League

By: James Carlin

As Hirooki Goto and YOSHI-HASHI continue to have a stellar run as a duo, their legacy continues to be cemented after winning this year’s World Tag League tournament. Bishamon defeated STRONG Openweight Tag Team champions El Phantasmo and Hikuleo to win the tournament. This marks the first time in history that not only have a team won three times, but won three times consecutively, and won as the reigning IWGP Tag Team Champions.

The winners challenged their fellow finalists for a second match, this time at Wrestle Kingdom 18 inside the Tokyo Dome with both the IWGP Tag Team Championships and STRONG Openweight Tag Team Titles on the line.

Bishamon have previously held both the STRONG Openweight Tag Team Championships and IWGP Tag Team Championships at the same time, winning the vacant STRONG Openweight Tag Team titles earlier this year and having held their IWGP Tag Team gold from defeating FTR at Wrestle Kingdom 17.

Their third and current reign as IWGP Tag Team champions started the same night they won the STRONG Openweight Tag Titles, with Aussie Open having to relinquish both the IWGP and STRONG Openweight tag team championships they held following Mark Davis’ injury, with Bishamon being crowned the new double crown tag team champions at Dominion, defeating House of Torture (Yujiro Takahashi, EVIL) and United Empire (HENARE, Great O-Khan) in a three-way match to determine the new champions.
