The World Tag League continued Saturday and included a loss by the current IWGP tag champions with a logjam in the standings.

After the latest show, there is a five-way tie for first place including IWGP tag champions Zack Sabre Jr. & Taichi, Tetsuya Naito & SANADA, Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens, Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI, and Great O-Khan & Aaron Henare all at 12 points after Saturday.

The card from Yamanashi was headlined by the Guerrillas of Destiny defeating Hiroshi Tanahashi & Toru Yano as last year’s Tag League winners improve to ten points while Tanahashi & Yano remain with eight.

The Dangerous Tekkers suffered another loss in the tournament, losing to EVIL & Yujiro after Everything is Evil was executed on Taichi. It’s the second loss during the tournament by the current champions, who previously lost to Great O-Khan & Aaron Henare.

With ZSJ & Taichi’s loss, the other four teams all picked up wins to create the five-way tie for first place heading into the home stretch of the Tag League, which concludes on December 15th.
