Roppongi 3K are vacating their IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team titles.
The duo, consisting of SHO and YOH, revealed after the August 27 Summer Struggle show that they will be vacating their belts. NJPW announced that more information on the status of the titles will be revealed soon.
YOH is currently out of action with an injury that will keep him sidelined for months and the duo have yet to defend their titles since February when they last retained their titles against the team of Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi.

This officially ends one of the longest reigns for the title of the past decade. Roppongi 3K won the titles back at Wrestle Kingdom 14 in January, tying Roppongi Vice, Apollo 55 and Gedo & Jado for having the second-most reigns in title history at four.
While YOH has been out of action with the injury, SHO has challenged for the NEVER Openweight title, competed in the tournament to crown a new NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champion and wrestled SANADA in the first round of the KOPW 2020 Title tournament.
