Two teams share the lead in the B Block of the NJPW World Tag League after Saturday’s matches.

The latest round of the tournament came from the Edion Arena in Osaka.

Lance Archer & Alex Zayne were handed their first loss at the hands of Minoru Suzuki & Yuji Nagata. This was the first win for Suzuki & Nagata in the competition.

Elsewhere, Yuya Uemura & Taichi scored a win against CMLL’s Atlantis Jr & Soberano Jr.

Uemura & Taichi now share the top spot in the B Block with Archer & Zayne with both teams on 8 points.

Bad Luck Fale & Jack Bonza continued their miserable run with another loss, this time to El Phantasmo & Hikuleo.
