NJPW World Tag League night nine results: LIJ vs. GOD


NJPW's World Tag League 2021 tournament continued today in Okayama.

With only two nights left in the tournament, Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa needed a victory in the main event to maintain a chance to place in the top two and advance to the finals, barring an unlikely series of no contests and double DQs. They faced Tetsuya Naito and SANADA, who looked to get to 14 points and remain in contention for the finals.
