    This marks Takayuki “Takashi” Iizuka’s third tag team title reign, each one with a different partner (with Riki Choshu in July 1989, with Kazuo Yamazaki in June 1996, and with Toru Yano in May 2012).

  2. Drew says:

    Congrats to Low Ki!

  3. James says:

    And if Iizuka loses the title, he’ll wait a while, get a new partner and aim to win another tag title in April.
