All Japan's World Tag tournament opens on Sunday at Korakuen Hall. This is the longest uninterrupted pro wrestling traditional event of its kind in the world, dating back to 1977 with The Funks vs. The Sheik & Abdullah the Butcher in the famous first final match which is among the most well remembered matches in Japanese history. Since 2000, this tournament has been a shell of what it once was. The first night matches are Kenso & Mitsuya Nagai vs. Kengo Mashimo & Tank Nagai, Akebono & Yutaka Yoshie vs. Zeus & The Bodyguard, Go Shiozaki & Kento Miyahara vs. Atsushi Aoki & Hikaru Sato and Jun Akiyama & Takao Omori vs. Suwama & Joe Doering.
