Now all the eight teams competing at the HADO SUMMER CUP 2019 held on Sunday, August 25, 2019 have finally been unveiled. Here are the two teams having gained the last tickets to the finals for the HADO SUMMER CUP 2019 by winning the final qualifying round held on August 4.
With the astonishingly charismatic and muscular leader, Yuya Suzuki, “EXPENDABLES” is recognized as a group of entertaining heels by themselves and others. To our surprise, Hyo joined the team this season, transferred from “REN”, ranked third in the world in 2017. After getting over the hard times without significant outcomes, they finally won at the qualifying round and made it to the finals. As more united as a team, their goal is to win the first grand slam title at the HADO SUMMER CUP 2019.
・HANA YORI SAKE!
“HANA YORI SAKE!” will make their second grand slam appearance at the HADO SUMMER CUP 2019 followed by the last HADO SPRING CUP. The team gained Tsugu this season, becoming the four-player team, which enables them to implement a wider range of strategies in the battles. Their innocent looks don’t remind us of any of their various kinds of attacks, but they utilize the height difference in the members to perform superbly enough to exert pressure on the teams ranked higher. Can they make quite a splash at the HADO SUMMER CUP 2019 and make a toast over the victory? We will see on August 25!
HANA YORI SAKE!
