Korakuen Hall, Tokyo

Commentary is in Japanese.

Match 1:   Karl Fredericks and Hirooki Goto vs. Mikey Nicholls and Jeff Cobb

Nicholls pinned Fredericks with a spinning sit down powerbomb.   Goto and Fredericks leave ringside and KENTA attacks Goto.   KENTA throws Goto in the ring and blasts him in the face with a Psycho Knee.  Goto is out cold.  KENTA mocks Goto with his own finger pose.   

I would expect a match for the NEVER Openweight Championship at Wrestle Kingdom between KENTA and Goto to be announced soon.

Match 2:   Manabu Nakanishi and Yuji Nagata vs. Colt Cabana and Toru Yano

Cabana pinned Nakanishi with the Superman roll up.

Match 3:   Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyoshi Tenzan vs. Taichi and Zack Sabre Jr.

Fun and stiff match!   The end happened when Taichi hit Tenzan with a low blow and nailed him with Black Mephisto.   ZSJ got the pin on Tenzan.    Taichi hit both Kojima and Tenzan with his mic stand after the match.   

Match 4:   David Finlay and Juice Robinson vs. Chase Owens and Bad Luck Fale 

Finlay rolls up Owens for a pinfall win.

Match 5:  Toa Henare and Hiroshi Tanahashi vs.  Yujiro Takahashi, with Pieter and KENTA 

KENTA pinned Henare with a Go To Sleep.

Hirooki Goto attacks both Takahashi and KENTA.  Bullet Club tries to escape but Goto grabs KENTA and they fight around the ringside area and back to the locker room.

Match 6:   SHO, YOH and Kazuchika Okada vs. Yota Tsuji, Yuya Uemura and Kota Ibushi 

YOH pinned Tsuji with a Falcon Arrow.

Okada took the mic and taunted Ibushi.   Ibushi jumped to the top rope for a drop kick.  Okada fell to the mat.  Ibushi jumped down and took the mic.   He taunted Okada back and left the ring.   

Match 7:   Tomoaki Honma and Togi Makabe vs. Tanga Loa and Tama Tonga, with Jado 

Tanga Loa forces Honma to submit to a crossface.

Match 8:   YOSHI-HASHI and Tomohiro Ishii vs.  SANADA and EVIL 

Awesome main event!    So many close falls and two counts.  SANADA locked Cold Skull on YOSHI-HASHI.   EVIL hits Everything is Evil on Ishii and locked a scorpion deathlock to prevent him from helping his partner.   YOSHI-HASHI tapped out.  Los Ingobernales de Japon gets the win!

Juice/Finlay and SANADA/EVIL share the lead with 16 points

Guerrillas of Destiny, Cabana/Yano, YOSHI-HASHI/Ishii follow with 14 points.

World Tag League 2019 continues on NJPW World with Video On Demand matches.

The next full event card happens on December 5 and 6.   The World Tag League Final is scheduled for December 8.
