NJPW Super Junior Tag League: Updated standings, results

As the Super Junior Tag League enters its final stretch, Los Ingobernables de Japon faced ACH & Ryusuke Taguchi at this morning's Road to Power Struggle show.

Shingo Takagi & BUSHI defeated ACH & Taguchi in this morning's Super Junior Tag League tournament match. Takagi & BUSHI finish with a 5-2 record and 10 points, which currently places them second behind IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru due to Desperado & Kanemaru holding the tiebreaker.

The two teams with the most points will meet in the Super Junior Tag League finals at Power Struggle in Osaka on November 3. If Desperado & Kanemaru don't win the tournament, the winning team will likely be in line for a title shot against them.

There are only two Super Junior Tag League matches left. Taiji Ishimori & Robbie Eagles vs. Volador Jr. & Soberano Jr. is set for Wednesday and Sho & Yoh take on KUSHIDA & Chris Sabin on Thursday. Sho & Yoh have eight points. Sho & Yoh would hold the tiebreaker over Kanemaru & Desperado if they win their next match, but Takagi & BUSHI would have the tiebreaker over Sho & Yoh.

UPDATE: Kevin Kelly indicated that a three-way tie could be decided by a coin flip.

Here are the updated Super Junior Tag League standings:

  • El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru (5-2) -- 10 points
