The New Japan Cup tournament is typically a spring event on the New Japan Pro Wrestling calendar. In 2020, the tournament took place in the summer due to COVID-19 restrictions. Past winners include Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tetsuya Naito, Kota Ibushi, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Kazuchika Okada, with EVIL taking home the prize in 2020.
