NJPW World Tag League: Night 3 Results (11/19) Tag Action In Korakuen
New Japan Pro Wrestling continued their dual-tournament marathon with World Tag League on Thursday. The show was headlined by SANADA & Shingo Takagi getting a shock win over the IWGP Tag Team Champions, despite the LIJ tandem’s relative inexperience as a team. Takagi even took to the mic to let SANADA know that if they lost the tournament, it’s on Takagi.
Shingo: Now we're 2-1. And it looks like we just beat the tag champions! I think we can do this! SANADA, you've won two in a row, three time finalist. If we don't make it to the end, that's on me, so I'll do all I can!

Elsewhere on the show, intra-faction competition took center stage as Bullet Club and CHAOS had to battle among themselves. Guerrillas of Destiny got a heated win over EVIL & Yujiro Takahashi to even things with their BC brethren. YOSHI-HASHI & Hirooki Goto fell to fellow-stablemates (and fellow NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Champions) Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano.
Plus The Empire continue to coalesce and FinJuice go to war with former-mentor Hiroshi Tanahashi. The show is available on NJPWWorld.com.
