Ten matches took place earlier on Sunday as the 2024 NJPW Best of the Super Juniors tournament continued.

The main event at the Nagoya Congress Center saw Block A leader Blake Christian suffer his first loss of the tournament at the hands of El Desperado.

Christian still tops his block with 8 points and a 4-1 record.

In the B Block, KUSHIDA moved into pole position with a win over Taiji Ishimori.

Elsewhere on the card, Dragon Dia went out of contention with a fifth loss, this time to DOUKI.

TJP got into the win column for the first time in the tournament, defeating HAYATA.

The opening match saw Francesco Akira selling a knee injury from Saturday’s action. Drilla Moloney submitted the Italian with a knee bar, and then kept on attacking the leg after the bell.
