NJPW have come back with a bang ever since their return from lockdown this past summer. They returned with the New Japan Cup 2020, while also having a separate NJ Cup for their USA brand known as NJPW Strong.

New Japan also had tournaments to determine the King of Pro Wrestling 2020, new NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champions, and IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. Now with the G1 Climax 30 hitting the midway point, they have announced their next set of tournaments to close out 2020.

During intermission of today's G1 Climax 30 Night 10 event, NJPW announced that they will be having their World Tag League 2020 and Best of Super Juniors tournaments at the same time, starting on November 15th. This marks the first time that New Japan Pro Wrestling will run two major tournaments at the same time. These big time round robin-style occasions will follow the Power Struggle 2020 event on November 7th.

NJPW released their press release detailing how the tournaments will be handled while the current global pandemic results in stricter restrictions for their events. Their press release read:

Thank you for your continued support of New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). As part of our ongoing Coronavirus prevention measures, we will limit the number of wrestlers participating on the World Tag League and Best of the Super Junior double tour.  

NJPW's schedule for World Tag League 2020 and Best of Super Juniors 27 tournaments

The winners of the World Tag League 2020 will get a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions at the Tokyo Dome on January 4th at NJPW WrestleKingdom 15, as usual.

With the Best of Super Juniors 27 tournament taking place now, the biggest difference with the announcement today is that the winner of that tournament will also get their title shot at the Tokyo Dome.
