NJPW World Tag League 2021 Day 6 Results, Updated Standings
LIJ suffer their first loss
NJPW World Tag League 2021 continued today as Tokyo's Korakuen Hall hosted the sixth round of matches from the tournament.
Dangerous Tekkers moved past Hiroshi Tanahashi and Toru Yano in the standings today, as Suzuki-gun used The Sublime Master Thief's shenanigans against him.
Yano and Tanahashi thought they had the match won down the stretch after they handcuffed ZSJ and Taichi to a steel beam. Their Suzuki-gun faction-mate Yoshinobu Kanemaru was on commentary, though, and he abandoned his duties to free his friends. Yano and Tanahashi then went back on the attack, only to have their feet tied together by Kanemaru, and they failed to meet the count of 20, losing to the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions by count-out.
Tetsuya Naito and SANADA suffered their first loss of the tournament in the main event, falling to The United Empire's Great-O-Khan and Aaron Henare. The victors then dished out more punishment in a post-match attack until IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi took off his glasses, which prompted Great-O-Khan to push SANADA out of the ring.
