Wednesday saw the fourth round of B Block matches in the NJPW World Tag League take place in Shizuoka.

The main event at the Twin Messe Shizuoka North Hall saw the first time-limit draw of the tournament as Bishamon (YOSHI-HASHI & Hirooki Goto) and Soberano Jr. & Atalantis Jr. battled for 30 minutes without a winner.

Earlier, Alex Zayne & Lance Archer extended their perfect record with a victory over Yuya Uemura & Taichi of Just Five Guys.

Minoru Suzuki & Yuji Nagata continued their losing streak with a loss to El Phantasmo and Hikuleo. Suzuki & Nagata remain stubbornly at the bottom of the B Block on zero points.

Meanwhile, Bad Luck Fale & Jack Bonza won their first match of the tournament with a victory over Yota Tsuji & Zandokan Jr.

Earlier in the show, Toa Liona & Bishop Kaun appeared to align with House of Torture when they accepted T-shirts from EVIL. They did this despite having just lost a non-tournament six-man tag match to House of Torture.
