NJPW Best of the Super Juniors: Night 3 results and updated standings

Originally published at NJPW Best of the Super Juniors: Night 3 results and updated standings

Blake Christian and Titan lead the pack in the A Block after the third night of action in the 2024 NJPW Best of the Super Junior bracket.

Christian and Titan picked up wins in Niigata, Japan on Wednesday, keeping their records in the block undefeated through three matches and putting them atop the standings. The rest of the division is closely packed together, as more than half of the round-robin action has yet to be completed.

The main event of Wednesday night saw El Desperado pick up his second win of the tournament, going 13 minutes for a victory over BUSHI. The match kept BUSHI as just one of the two winless wrestlers in the A Block alongside TJP.

The B Block will be back under the spotlight tomorrow with matchups from Gunma. The card is expected to be headlined by a bout between Taiji Ishimori and Robbie Eagles.

Here are the results from Wednesday, along with a look at the standings.
