International superstar Prince Devitt won the 2013 Best of the Super Juniors tournament Sunday in Tokyo, Japan. Devitt won New Japan's annual tournament by defeating former TNA wrestler Alex Shelley in the finals.

After winning the Super Juniors tournament, Devitt requested a match against former IWGP Hvt. champion Tanahashi.

Earlier in the show, Shelley beat Taka Michinoku and Devitt beat Kenny Omega to advance to the FInals.

Also during Sunday's show, the NWA sent a message paving the way for NWA World Hvt. champion Rob Conway returning to New Japan. The challenge was accepted by Manabu Nakanishi.
