As NJPW’s World Tag League 2020 begins its final two weeks the Chaos team of Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano are at the top of the ratings. They are now in first place with 10 points while all of the other teams except for the two Bullet Club teams (Evil & Yujiro Takahashi and Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens) and Hiroshi Tanahashi & Toa Henare are in six-way tie for second place.
Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano took on the last place team on night six: Hiroshi Tanahashi & Toa Henare. Hiroshi Tanahashi & Toa Henare have won only one match in the tournament thus far and that was against Evil & Yujiro Takahashi.
The match ended with a battle of the two powerhouses: Ishii and Henare. Ishii knocked Henare head over heels with a running clothesline. Henare kicked out at two. Henare wrestled free of Ishii’s attempted Brainbuster to head butt and kick him in the face. Ishii countered Henare’s Rock Bottom into a Brainbuster for the 1-2-3.
