The NEVER Handsomeweight Championship is a title contested for in New Japan Pro Wrestling. It is a secondary title in the Handsome Division, below the IWGP Handsome Championship. While not technically an nL title, it is a title recognised and recorded by nL fans on Discord. The current and inaugural champion is Hiroshi Tanahashi.

Background and RulesEdit

The title was created due to an impromptu "Handsome Battle" between Hiroshi Tanahashi and Hangman Page on Day 7 of G1 Climax 28. A brief discussion on discord led to the naming and creation of the title.

Rules for the NEVER Handsomeweight Championship apply as so:

  • The title can only be defended in singles or multi-man matches. Tag matches do not apply.
  • The title can change hands via pinfall or submission.
  • The title can also change hands on DQ or count out, as cheating and cowardice are considered un-handsome.
