As World Tag League comes to a close there are four teams who still have a shot at winning it all.
Aussie Open still leads the pack with 14 points. They were defeated by TMDK tonight which stopped them from increasing that lead.
SANADA and Tetsuya Naito, TMDK and Hirooki Goto and Yoshi-Hashi are all tied for second place with 12 points each.
Both the World Tag League and Super Junior Tag League tournaments end next Wednesday. The Juniors will compete again tomorrow with the finalists moving on to Wednesday’s finals while the World Tag League participants have their final day on Sunday.
The winners of the tournament get to challenge for the titles at Wrestle Kingdom. If the champs win, they get to pick their opponents.
