SHO Turns On YOH During NJPW Super Jr. Tag League

SHO turns heel and Roppongi 3K is no more

Roppongi 3K is no more in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. 

SHO & YOH teamed together today in round four of Super Junior Tag League against Suzuki-gun's El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru. YOH struggled throughout today's match and SHO refused to stand alongside his partner any longer after El Desperado trapped YOH in a submission.

YOH managed to make it to the ropes, but SHO refused to return to the ring and Despe put YOH away with the Pinche Loco for the 1-2-3. 

After the match, SHO helped his tag team partner to his feet, only to then hit him with a Shock Arrow and walk over the top of his head, ending their friendship for good.

With the turn, SHO and YOH's tag team comes to an end after four years. The two Chaos members were put together as Roppongi 3K when they returned from excursion in 2017. They captured the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship in their return match and they went on to win the title four more times before their split.  

A split appeared to be on the horizon in 2021 as Roppongi 3K lost all three of their Super Junior Tag League matches ahead of today's bout.
