SANADA and Tetsuya Naito are now leading the World Tag League standings with ten points over second place Toru Yano and Hiroshi Tanahashi and their eight points after night five’s action. SANADA and Tetsuya Naito extended their lead by beating Chase Owens and Bad Luck Fale.
Bullet Club’s House of Torture cheated their way to another win this time over Yoshi-Hashi and Hirooki Goto. Dick Togo featured prominently in the victory once again. With the official in dreamland, Togo choked out Goto on the floor with his garotte. Togo then strangled Hashi in the ring. Evil hit Hashi with a chair in the gut. Yujiro bashed Hashi in his head with his cane so hard that his cane broke in half. Yujiro pinned Hashi with his Pimp Juice DDT to elevate the team to four points in the tournament.
