Originally published at https://www.postwrestling.com/2022/12/03/njpw-world-tag-league-night-6-aussie-open-still-ahead-updated-standings/

After night 6 of the NJPW World Tag League, Aussie Open is still in pole position, just ahead of Tetsuya Naito and SANADA.

Chase Owens has had to exit the tournament due to a family bereavement, meaning that he and Bad Luck Fale forfeit their remaining matches, with their scheduled opponents awarded 2 points.

After a death in the family, Chase Owens will be absent for the remainder of World Tag League.

We join fans in offering Chase our condolences.
