New Japan Pro Wrestling held its second of three straight shows at Korakuen Hall on Sunday as the Super Jr. Tag League continues.

The IWGP Junior Heavyweight tag champions have started the tournament with back-to-back wins in the main event.

Sunday’s card saw Taiji Ishimori & El Phantasmo jump to four points with a win against Master Wato & Ryusuke Taguchi with ELP using the CR II to pin Wato.

All three teams that scored wins on Saturday won their matches on Sunday with Robbie Eagles & Tiger Mask and El Desperado & Yoshinobu Kanemaru winning their respective matches and increased their point totals to four.

Former champions Roppongi 3K (SHO & YOH) are off to an 0-2 start after dropping Sunday’s tournament match to Robbie Eagles & Tiger Mask after Eagles used the Ron Miller Special to submit YOH.

Roppongi 3K, Taguchi & Master Wato, and Dick Togo & Gedo all have zero points after two nights.
