NJPW Road to Destruction results 9-22-15: Six man tag action

by Bryan Rose,

Here are quick results for the last of the Road to Destruction shows, taking place this morning in Uwajima.

Ryusuke Taguchi defeated Yohei Komatsu. He was defeated after Taguchi pinned him following a dodon. Good opener with lots of hot near falls towards the end.

Yuji Nagata & Manabu Nakanishi defeated Jay White and Satoshi Kojima. Nagata pinned White with the backdrop suplex hold. Solid match, but nothing beyond that.

Mascara Dorada, Tiger Mask and Jushin Thunder Liger defeated Roppongi Vice and Gedo. Tiger Mask submitted Gedo with what looked like a modified seated chickenwing. Another solid tag match with both Tiger Mask and Dorada doing cool dives here and there. Crowd was really into it. Tiger Mask cut a promo, probably talking about the NWA Jr. title match coming up.

Tomoaki Honma and Katsuyori Shibata defeated Tetsuya Naito and Juice Robinson. Honma pinned Robinson with the top rope kokeshi headbutt while Shibata choked Naito using the ropes on the apron. Sibata threw him into the barricade after the match. They had the same finish from the last show where Naito acted like he was going to hit Shibata with a chair, but sat on it instead. This time Shibata used Honma to give Naito another kokeshi, then Shibata beat him up some more to send him packing. Solid match that the crowd was really into.

The mayor of Uwajima came to the ring with the town mascot, which looked like a sun in a bonnet wearing a superhero outfit. Don’t ask me! Sho Tanaka, who is the hometown favorite, came to the ring to a nice pop as he posed with them.

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Hiroyoshi Tenzan, Kushida and Sho Tanaka defeated Bad Luck Fale, Kenny Omega, Cody Hall and Doc Gallows. Tanahashi pinned Hall following the high fly flow. People were very into the match, especially when Tanaka was on offense. Very good match helped by the crowd reacting big to everything. Tanaka had his music played after the match and posed with his team mates.

Kazuchika Okada & Tomohiro Ishii defeated Karl Anderson & Tama Tonga. Just a standard match, not very much to it. Okada pinned Tama Tonga with the rainmaker.

Shinsuke Nakamura, Yoshi Hashi and Toru Yano defeated Togi Makabe, Hirooki Goto and Captain New Japan. Nakamura won after pinning CNJ with a boma ye. Nothing that exciting but not bad by any means. There was a period where CNJ was scoring a number of near falls on Nakamura but very few people in the crowd bought it, which is weird because they even get into the young lion pin falls. But I guess that result is why no one buys him as anything more than a job guy.
