House of Torture (EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi, SHO) are your new NJPW NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champions.

During Friday’s NJPW Burning Spirit tour event, House of Evil captured the NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team titles by defeating CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, YOH, YOSHI-HASHI) in a Tornado Dog Cage Survival Match.

The finish saw EVIL pin YOH after Goto and YOSHI-HASHI were locked in a dog cage. The former champions added a stipulation to the competition where keys for each of the first-class dog cages were placed on the ring posts, and those keys could be used to release a teammate if they were locked up. House of Torture quickly took advantage when they locked Goto and YOSHI-HASHI in the cage early on. EVIL ended YOH with its Everything Is Evil finisher.

This is the second reign of House of Torture. CHAOS won the titles on July 5 at the New Japan Road event, defeated House of Torture to start their first reign and ended House of Torture’s first reign that lasted 241 recognized days with four successful title defenses. CHAOS held the belts for 80 recognized days without a successful title defense.
