New Japan Pro Wrestling put on their “New Beginning” event in Sandai, Japan on February 14 at Sendai Sun Plaza. The event was attended by 2900 fans and four titles were defended on the show. Notable was that the NEVER Openweight Championship, which we saw Togi Makabe win at Wrestle Kingdom 9, was vacated when Makabe couldn’t make the show due to the flu. So the title was put on the line tonight.
