We are now on the 8th night of NJPW’s “SUPER Jr TAG LEAGUE 2023” as we are at the Yoshitsune Arena in Ishikawa, Japan.
The night saw some more great tournament action. We Start with Titan & BUSHI who after a slow start people seemingly have counted out but, they have gone on a winstreak and continued it on the night for their 5th win by defeating Robbie Eagles & Kosei Fujita to reach 10 points. Also on the night, Kevin Knight & KUSHIDA Intergalactic Jet Setters & BULLET CLUB War Dogs duo Clark Connors & Drilla Moloney won their respecive block matches also moving to 10 points.
The semi-main saw the now on the same page team of Master Wato & El Desperado take on bottom of the leaderboard DOUKI & TAKA Michinoku. There would be no upset here as Wato & Despey get the win moving them back into the leaders spot moving to 12 points. The Main Event was another important one, as Yoshinobu Kanemaru & SHO with a win could be on par with the leaders. However they faced what many people have called one of the best tag teams in the world Catch 2/2 Francesco Akira & TJP. In the end after an exciting match and fighting off the usual House of Torture tactics, Francesco Akira & TJP emerged as the winners, joining the pack of teams that are on 10 points. This means heading into the final night of league matches, 6 teams are still in the running to make the finals.
