At the end of night eight of NJPW’s World Tag League there is a five-way tie for first place. Zack Sabre Jr. and Taichi, Sanada and Tetsuya Naito, Chase Owens and Bad Luck Fale, YOSHI-HASHI and Hirooki Goto and The United Empire are leading the pack with 12 points each.
The Suzuki-gun team of TAKA Michinoku and Minoru Suzuki still haven’t won a single match. They lost to Chaos’ Yoshi-Hashi and Hirooki Goto tonight. Minoru was so angry after the match he smashed a steel chair over the ringside barricade and one thing you don’t want to do is make Minoru Suzuki angry. You can bet that if the team’s fortunes don’t change soon TAKA Michinoku may face the ire of all of Suzuki-gun as he did at the start of the tournament.
