NJPW World Tag League results: Okada & Yoshi-Hashi vs. Nakanishi & Nagata

New Japan Pro Wrestling

Here are quick results for the 11/24 World Tag League show held in Ishikawa, Japan:

The Addiction vs. Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale

Mostly back and forth. Fale took it into the crowd at one point for a brawl. Addiction worked as the babyfaces and looked great; they have great timing as a tag team. Fale tried to splash Kazarian and Daniels but they moved out of the way and he splashed Tama Tonga. The Addiction then hit Celebrity Rehab and got the win.

The Kingdom vs. Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson

They had a good match. Same Maria spots you’ve seen in every other encounter they’ve had this year- she went into the ring at one point, Anderson danced, Maria danced, and Anderson walked right into a superkick. Gallows and Anderson eliminated Bennett, however, and Taven walked into a Doc Gallows superkick, eventually leading to their win after a Magic Killer.

Kazuchika Okada and Yoshi-Hashi vs. Manabu Nakanishi and Yuji Nagata

Decent match. Nagata and Okada were in first and they had a nice exchange. Nakanishi was in there a lot, more than you would think given his limitations. At one point Nakanishi had Okada in the torture rack and Nagata put Yoshi-Hashi in the armbar but both managed to escape. I wish that would be a finish for once, that’d give that spot some credibility. Okada eventually pinned Nakanishi with the rainmaker.
