New Japan Pro Wrestling Announces IMPACT Wrestling Stars and Bullet Club Members Ace Austin and Chris Bey Will Be Participating in the Super Jr. Tag Team League, IMPACT Comments
Moments ago, New Japan Pro Wrestling took to their social media Twitter account and announced that members of the IMPACT Wrestling roster and Bullet Club members Ace Austin and Chris Bey will be taking part in their “Super Juniors Tag Team League” tournament in Japan.
IMPACT Wrestling retweeted the announcement.
The Super Junior Tag League will get underway on November 21, with ten teams vying to be the best junior heavyweight duo, and likely book their ticket to Wrestle Kingdom 17 in the process.
One of the most popular figures in this year’s Best of the Super Jr. series, Ace Austin was a phenom through the tour, and one that gained many an admirer for his dynamic in ring style, easy charisma with the fans, and close friendship with Alex Zayne. The latter two were thrown to the wind at the tour final however, when Austin turned his back on Zayne by aligning himself with BULLET CLUB. The Inevitable then brought his new factional allegiance with him to his home base in IMAPCT Wrestling by forming an effective combination with Chris Bey, who makes his own Japanese debut this tour. A powerful force in IMPACT, there’s every chance Bey and Austin could walk away with an early Christmas present of the Super Jr. Tag League trophies come December 14.
A few months ago, IMPACT Wrestling announced that they had signed Ace Austin to a new, multi-year contract; weeks ago Chris Bey announced that he has also signed a new, multi-year contract. These are two of IMPACT’s best stars and it’s great to see the company and one of their biggest partners get behind these superstars.
