Roppongi 3K is no more.
SHO and YOH of Roppingi 3K are no longer a duo after SHO ambushed his partner at the conclusion of the 8/16 Summer Struggle show. They were competing in the Best of the Super Juniors Tag Team tournament and were o-3 heading into today’s main event match.
SHO and YOH took on Yoshinobu Kanemaru and El Desperado. SHO refused to return to the ring when YOH was in trouble which led to them dropping to 0-4 in the tournament. After the match, SHO hit his former partner with the ‘Shock Arrow’.
