In regards to New Japan Pro Wrestling first issuing a press releasing saying they wouldn't acknowledge TNA's British Invasion (Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams) as IWGP Tag Team Champions and later retracting the statement this week was something of major confusion. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that TNA sent out a release of its own (which, to our knowledge, was not made public) saying that reports out of New Japan not recognizing the title change were not accurate. TNA claims they spoke with New Japan both before and after the match was taped on July 21, stated the titles would be on the line and New Japan agreed. Why they would release a statement saying they wouldn't acknowledge the title change and then issue a new one that they would now is anyone's guess. Either way, thing seem to be fine now. The British Invasion is scheduled to defend the IWGP Tag Team Championships against Beer Money, Inc. at TNA's Hard Justice PPV this Sunday in Orlando, FL.
