Finals confirmed for NJPW World Tag League 2018


The finals for World Tag League 2018 were set at this morning's show in Akita.

Guerillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) defeated Toru Yano & Tomohiro Ishii and SANADA & EVIL defeated Killer Elite Squad (Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Lance Archer) this morning, meaning it will be Guerrillas of Destiny vs. SANADA & EVIL in the finals. There had been a four-way tie for first place between those teams heading into today's show.

At the end of today's event, Guerrillas of Destiny called out SANADA and EVIL. Tonga, Loa, and Jado attacked SANADA and EVIL and laid them out.

Guerrillas of Destiny defeated SANADA & EVIL in their match during this year's tournament. SANADA & EVIL defeated Guerrillas of Destiny in last year's finals.

Guerrillas of Destiny are the current IWGP Tag Team Champions. If SANADA & EVIL defeat them in the finals, SANADA & EVIL will challenge for their titles at Wrestle Kingdom 13 in some form.

The World Tag League finals will take place in Iwate on Sunday and air live on New Japan World. Hirooki Goto defending the NEVER Openweight Championship against Kota Ibushi has also been announced for the show.
