NJPW Road to Power Struggle results: Junior Tag League day 11

The eleventh day of the Super Junior Tag League took place this morning in Shizuoka. There was only one tournament match, as one more will take place tomorrow and the rest will take place on Friday. Here are this morning's results:

TJP & Karl Fredericks defeated Tomoaki Honma & Yota Tsuji

- TJP defeated Tsuji following the detonation kick.

Volador Jr. & Titan defeated El Desperado & DOUKI

- Titan pinned DOUKI after a springboard double foot stomp. This was pretty good, Volador Jr. and Titan mesh well as a team and stand out.

El Phantasmo & Taiji Ishimori defeated Jushin Thunder Liger & Clark Connors

- ELP pinned Connors following the CR2.

Tetsuya Naito, BUSHI, SANADA and Shingo Takagi defeated Taichi, Minoru Suzuki, Zack Sabre Jr. and Yoshinobu Kanemaru

- Kanemaru took the pinfall here, being pinned after a Destino by Tetsuya Naito. Taichi waited until Natio was walking to the back to attack him, throwing him head first into the ringpost. He then nailed him with a chair.

Jay White, KENTA and Yujiro Takahashi defeated Tomohiro Ishii, Hirooki Goto and Toa Henare

- White pinned Henare with the bladerunner.

Super Junior Tag League: SHO & YOH defeated Tiger Mask & Yuya Uemura

YOH and Tiger Mask start things off, then Uemura is tagged in, who demands to wrestle SHO. The two wrestle for a bit before SHO gains control, tagging in YOH.

Uemura finally came to life, cutting off SHO with a dropkick and tagged in Tiger Mask, who went for the tiger driver but SHO blocked it. Tiger Mask instead took his leg and went for a scissors. He went for it again, but SHO escaped, only for Tiger Mask to strike him with a knee.

Tiger Mask connected with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker on YOH, and after some goading from Uemura tagged him in, who went after YOH. Tiger Mask came back in and hit the Tiger Driver on SHO as Uemura hit a suplex on YOH and went for a Boston crab. YOH tried to crawl to the ropes, but he was unable to. 

SHO eventually freed himself, but Uemura hit a giant German suplex on YOH. Uemura hit a bunch of hot near falls, but walked right into a YOH kick. YOH went for a dragon suplex, but Uemura blocked it. Instead, YOH went for a German, but Uemura kicked out. 

YOH threw a tantrum, but then went for the dragon suplex and this time it connected, picking up the win. Terrific match, this was all about getting Uemura over and they did a wonderful job in doing so. It’s that easy, folks.

As far as standings go heading into Friday’s matches, SHO & YOH, Desperado & Kanemaru, Ryusuke Taguchi & Rocky Romero, ELP & Taiji Ishimori and Ospreay & Eagles are still alive.

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Kota Ibushi, Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi defeated Kazuchika Okada, Will Ospreay, Robbie Eagles and YOSHI-HASHI  

- Tanahashi pinned Eagles with the high fly flow. He and the rest of his team celebrated with an air guitar performance to close out the show.
