Bound For Glory PPV Update, New Japan/TNA Update, & More
By Ryan Clark | August 22, 2009
» In regards to New Japan Pro Wrestling first issuing a press releasing saying they wouldn't acknowledge TNA's British Invasion (Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams) as IWGP Tag Team Champions and later retracting the statement this week was something of major confusion. TNA sent out a release of its own (which, to our knowledge, was not made public) saying that reports out of New Japan not recognizing the title change were not accurate. TNA claims they spoke with New Japan both before and after the match was taped on July 21, stated the titles would be on the line and New Japan agreed. Why they would release a statement saying they wouldn't acknowledge the title change and then issue a new one that they would now is anyone's guess. Either way, things seem to be fine now.
