Tag Matches Changed For NJPW Destruction In Kobe

Card is always subject to change.

That's what happened when New Japan Pro Wrestling announced that the final show of the Destruction tour, Destruction in Kobe, will have alterations to two matches. Both matches are tag matches and their changes reflect recent show results that saw YOH pin Tama Tonga and EVIL confront Kota Ibushi immediately after Ibushi retained his Tokyo Domo IWGP Heavyweight contract against KENTA.
