For the fourth time, Tama Tonga is NEVER Openweight Champion. 

The NEVER Openweight Championship was on the line at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 18 as Shingo Takagi and Tama Tonga clashed over the title. 

Takagi and Tonga wrestled for 30 minutes and in the end, it was Tama scoring a pin fall victory to win the NEVER Openweight Championship for a fourth time. 

It was in October at NJPW STRONG Fighting Spirit Unleashed that Takagi defeated Tama to become champion. When they ran the match back at Wrestle Kingdom, Tama emerged victorious.
