The vacant IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title has found a home.
At NJPW Castle Attack, El Desperado captured the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title when he pinned El Phantasmo with a double pincho loco in a triple threat match that also featured BUSHI.
This marks his first run with the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title. On February 25, El Desperado won the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Titles alongside Yoshinobu Kanemaru. BUSHI was originally tabbed to face ELP for the vacant title, but El Desperado inserted himself into the match at the conclusion of the February 25 Road to Castle Attack event.
Takahashi is scheduled to be out for an estimated six months.
